Now back to the cruise...
We went to Nassau, Bahamas, St. Thomas (where we took a taxi, then a boat, then another taxi, and went to a beach in St. John) and St. Maarten. The beaches were beautiful, the sand was so soft, the weather was a good 80 degrees, not too hot, but not cool. The days at sea were windy, but even though, days at sea tend to be my favorite! You can sleep in (or not, since we now have Shelby), lay out, go get a late breakfast, wander the ship, do nothing, do something or do everything. I feel so much more productive during days at sea. We had some great times, and despite Dave and I's serious lack of sleep, Shelby was wonderful during the days. She even fell asleep in her highchair during dinners. She was such a super trooper!
It was so nice to be able to spend time with the family. Shelby got alot of time with Aunt Rachel and Uncle Mikey, who she doesn't see as much since they're at college, and of course, her cousins loved up on her tons! She especially likes it when Raegan dances for her.
Now we are home, relaxed, with good memories, but I've never been so glad to have all of us in our own rooms, our own beds, and back on our schedules!
