better late than never...

i thought that i would upload some of the vacation pictures that we have. i was waiting to upload some until i got our underwater camera (that we bought on the cruise) developed. I went to pick it up today and they told me that they roll of film was blank...WHAT!!!! blank...as in no pictures of the stingrays underwater, no pictures of sunny and i petting the stingrays, no pictures of the coral...ugh... i am SO bummed. anyway, here are pictures that we do have.

Sunny waiting in the terminal while I was evaluated by the doctor to make sure i wasn't sick

From the back of the ship...had a water slide and splash pad
Sunny and I sitting in the stern watching us leave port

leaving Tampa...

Each day in our room, our room steward would turn down the bed and we would have a towel animal waiting on us... this was a dog!

At sea, we were just walking around looking at the water...amazing...
This is Skip, the cruise director. He's austrailian and was hilarious!!!

Day 1 at sea...our view off of the deck


Day 2 Dinner


On our cruise, we met a couple at our dinner table that was from Clinton, TN!!! Even funnier is that they have 2 yr old QUADS!!!! so needless to say, we didn't have to worry about conversation!!! Here is a picture of them, our camera is messy and the photo is blurry. We also had two other couples that were very cool, but the pictures did not turn out...
Here is Jason and Maria...



Our towel Crab!



Day 3, we were in Grand Cayman and had to take ferries to the shore


On the pier, I had Sunny pose for this picture...i thought it was funny...


Finally...a Dt. Mtn. Dew!!!!!

Looks like a fabulous trip! So glad you and your husband were able to get away. My hubby and I made a commitment to go each year around our anniversary on a trip. It is nice to feel like a couple and have the stress just melt away. Hope you enjoyed every minute!!
