Vacation 2010

This may be the very first post since Cason has been born that doesn't' have any pictures of him! Don't worry grandparents, I will post pictures of what he did the week we were gone soon!
Toby and I went on a Princess Cruise with our good friends the Loyds. We left from Ft. Lauderdale. Our first stop was Princess Cays, Bahamas. Sally and I spent the entire day laying out and the boys snorkeled for a good portion of the day. They was some really cool fish and a lobster!

Our next stop was Ocho Rios, Jamaica. It was SOOO beautiful. We climbed up Dunn's River Falls and went on a chair lift through the rain forest and up a mountain. I want to go back!

After Jamaica we stopped in Grand Cayman. This was by far my favorite place. We went to a sea turtle farm, a place called Hell, and we swam with sting rays. SOO COOL!

Our last stop was Cozumel, Mexico. It was a little rainy that day but we still had fun! I learned how to paddle board. If I lived near a beach this would become a hobby of mine! It was fun. And yes, I said "I", Toby had a hard time! I'm not sure he stood up for more than a couple of seconds at a time! He blames it on the fact that he had a shorter board. I think I am finally better at something than he is!

We ate a TON of good food. I am ashamed to so say that I gained a good 8 pounds! My only saving grace was that it seems I caught some kind of stomach bug on the ship and my first day back home lost 6 of those pounds. NOT a fun way to loose them!

8 days was a long time to be away from Cason. I am not sure I will do that ever again. 4 days maybe, but 8 days NO! He was just fine staying here with my parents and grandma. It is good to be home!
