Our Cruise - January 2009

This year for our Christmas gift to each other, we decided to take a short cruise to the Bahamas. With the help of Grandma Gladys watching the kids (THANK YOU), Mike and I were able to enjoy a few days of adult time. Joining us on our cruise was Martin and Zaida and Mark and Jennifer. It was a rough start to the trip since snow was predicted the morning we were leaving and Delta canceled our flight down to Jacksonville. Mike and I jumped in the van and drove all night to get down to Florida. It was a long drive, but we made the best of it. I was so excited to finally get on the ship. A drink was just what I needed! We stopped at Freeport and Nassau in the Bahamas and had one day at sea. Freeport we headed over to Port Lucaya to shop and check out the beach and in Nassau we shopped, went to the beach at the Atlantis and visited the Pirate Museum. Our day at sea was filled with fun, playing mini-golf, vollyball, relaxing in the hot tub and just laying out, soaking in the sun and resting up. Monday once we got off the ship, we prepared ourselves for the long drive back to NY and the cold. We stopped at South of the Border and my favorite, Cracker Barrel! It was late when we made it back, but we were so happy to see Jenna and Michael. As nice as it was to be away, we missed them both very much. And they missed us too, even though they had a great weekend with Grandma Gladys and Abuelita.

Below are just a few of the pictures from the trip.

We finally made it!! Sitting through the required drill.

This is what happens when you make a Pirate mad. :)
