As I mentioned previously, I just took a family cruise to the Bahamas. I was one of the lucky ones and my cruise was problem free. No Poop Cruise for me, for which I am extremely grateful. The hubby and I were joined by my sister and my parents. It was a lot of fun, the part that wasn't fun was leaving my baby for a week. That was really hard. I literally cried every day I was gone.
Noelle stayed with my grandmother and my cousin (who is really more like my aunt) and apparently she had a blast. When I finally got back to her, she just looked up at me like 'Oh, you guys again. Hey." She couldn't have cared less that we were gone or back.
So I figured I'd show off some of the photos from the trip. First though, the most important picture:
|I was so proud of my trophies. Two 24K gold plastic ships on a stick and a MEDAL.|
|The me and the sister.|
|We had just set sail, and already the husband was looking longingly at the land wishing he was back on it.|
A 5 night cruise is a long time with my family.
|Getting ready to go and explore Freeport.|
|The husband disagrees with my hats awesomeness.|
|We went to Senor Frogs. We drank.|
|The sister got to order her first legal alcoholic beverage in a restaurant.|
|Mom got slightly wasted. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the shots they insist you take. Man, Senor Frog's will get you chocolate wasted.|
|Yeah, we know. We're awesome.|
|This is how my husband wanders with us- distantly.|
|Yeah, husband threw out the devil horns. Because he's that guy.|
There was a lot more that we did. There was a ton more that we saw. But this is the tip of the family fun iceberg. I will say, the staff/crew is amazing. I loved our steward and our main server at dinner.
If you're ever in Nassau definitely go to the Ardastra Gardens- don't do the $50 excursion. Take a cab most are $5 a person and then pay the $16. Make friends with your cab driver and he'll give you his number and you can call him to come back for you. If you're really lucky- you'll get a driver named Gibson.
At the Ardastra Gardens they have marching flamingos- some of which were featured in National Geographic in the 1960's (they can live to be 70+). After their show, they wander the gardens with the PEACOCKS. THE GLORIOUS PEACOCKS. Like, you have to watch out our you may trip over them. It's really beautiful.
