We just returned from a wonderful and amazing trip.
Matt spoiled us all rotten with a wonderful cruise to Jamaica, Grand Caymen and Cozumel.
It was a celebration of life and love and triumph over the last 18 months.
We had incredible fun and made some memories we will never forget.
I also might...or might not...have turned 40 while we were on vacation!
We climbed Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica
and learned some new phrases like
"ya mon' and "no problem mon."
In Grand Caymen we went snorkling and
kissed sting rays in "Sting Ray Alley"
which is seven years good luck!
We found and held starfish at Starfish Pointe in Grand Caymen.
We enjoyed our time on the ship.
The kids especially love ordering their own sodas from the bar
with as many cherries and umbrellas as they'd like.
There was a Dr. Seuss parade on the ship.
They were told to chant "Dr. Seuss
is on the loose" to all the
"boring grown ups on their iPads reading"
they would pass on the way through the ship.
|Matt enjoying a Red Stripe.|
|This was an interesting character we met in Jamaica. |
Notice the pigeon he had tied to a string that landed on Lauren's head.
The kids enjoyed swinging from this
incredible swing on an
enormous Banyon tree in Jamaica.
The kids loved the Dr. Seuss
"Green Eggs and Ham" breakfast.
|Green eggs and ham.|
Us with "Thing One and Thing Two."
|The Cat in the Hat and Sam I Am.|
In Cozumel we swam with the dolphins and manatees.
It was incredible!
We are grateful for every day
but these days were extra extra special.
So grateful for all God's blessings and provision over the last 18 months
and for the opportunity to make these memories.
