Where do i start?

its been awhile since i blogged. When we got home from vacation life just took over and i didn't get a free minute. I'm just now getting a chance to sit down and breath.


Vacation was amazing. It was nice to have my dad with us this year. He doesn't do much with us since he got married so we enjoy the time we get. Him and his wife had a great time. They've never done anything like that before.  Dad, Kelly, Jimmy and Megan all came on Saturday and we spent the night in Fort Lauderdale. Had a great dinner on the beach and prepped for boarding the ship on Sunday. We were lazy on Sunday so we got a late start. We weren't going to have enough time to make 2 trips to Miami from Ft. Lauderdale with 9 of us and 16 pieces of luggage. So what do we do? Cram us all into the minivan we rented. OMG...it was freakin hilarious. It was like that Guiness book of world records volkswagon. We did it. I can't figure out how but holy mack...we did it. My knees were up my nose and i was crammed with the luggage but we made it. The guys at the port were crackin up. I have a picture somewhere...as soon as i find it i'll share :)


ok so back to the cruise...we went to Grand Cayman first. What an incredible place. We got to swim with the sting rays. REAL sting rays!! Right out there in the middle of the Caribbean sea. WOW...words cannot even begin to describe how amazing this was.

How beautiful are these animals? They were soft, slimy and surprisingly gentle. This is something we would all love to do again.


Then we spent some great beach time and had a fabulous lunch at Rum Point. YUMMY run too!!

In that shell is a real Conch. We grabbed it right off the bottom of the ocean. AMAZING


Then off to Roatan. I think this was my favorite spot. I would love to go back there and spend a week. Oh Jimmy....i love you honey :)  (that always works)


Everyone ziplined in Roatan (except Lexi and me) and then we went to another gorgeous beach.
