We're back...

Joe in Jamaica... you know he can pass up an opportunity to be stupid ;)

Us in Falmouth... with the huge ship behind us

One of my fave pics... I know it is kinda creepy... but this cemetary was from the 1700's in front of a super old church in Jamaica.... it was all historic and old and I loved all of it...

My hand carved pineapple from love loved all the wood work they had there

Marketplace at port in Jamaica

Jamaican school kids

Sunset over Falmouth, Jamaica

We had a Bon Voyage party in Miami before we left to board the cruise.... and our surprise entertainment... THE BEACH BOYS!

Beach at port in Haiti

Endless hallways on the ship

Formal night

From our room in Miami

Five Star Island... where we had dinner in Miami... next door to P Diddy Combs house (and I will be honest.. I think he is a rapper or something but I really don't know who he is lol)

Inside the foyer of Five Star Island.. yes... that is a giraffe... and there was lion.. and a stuffed German Shepard.... not my taste in home decor!

Kitchen at Five Star Island

Us in front of the tv screen's where JD and Stewart kept stopping to watch the NFL draft...

Me with Fiona and Shrek... peeps I used to work with called me Fiona because I was mean and had long hair lol

Can't miss the draft...even when floating the Atlantic!

I can't rotate it... but the floor of the elevator told us what day it was... and I had to read it almost everyday ;)

Monkey towel with JD's shades

See that one lil speck of white waaaaay out there... that is where we swam to while snorkeling.... and we thought we were goners before we made it back to shore!

Putt Putt on the top deck

He beat me by 1 point

Britto art work all over the ship.... I loved it....

The shoreline at Cozumel...

OK - Blogger has obviously done a major change since my last post and I know these pics are no where near in order but I have to go to work now and I didn't have time to re-learn all of the updates to put everything in the correct order. I have way more pics from my phone and more on my camera I haven't uploaded yet so be patient (Shelby) and I will try to get them on here ;)

We had a blast- but 9 days away from our kids was WAY too long... we squeezed them extra hard when we landed in Huntsville and saw them waiting for us with their little handmade We Missed You sign....
Absence makes the heart grow fonder- and I didn't think I could be more fond of my children.... but I am ... they even played hookie with us Monday;)

It is back to life here in Alabama... loads and loads of laundry.... runny noses..... house that will never be finished.....

Loved ALL the pictures! It looks like y'all had a great time. I can't wait to go on a cruise.

Oh, and I can't wait to hear all about the plane ride too! LOL

Thanks for the shout out :)

i'm sorry but I had to laugh that you do not know who P Diddy is! Puff Daddy - he is known by 2000 names so maybe that is why ;)

Amber said...

Wow, extremely jealous of your grown up time and vacation!Feels like I always have a kid hanging off of my somewhere, and sometimes they aren't even my kids! Maybe someday Lee and I will get a vacation longer than 2 nights away! Looks like you guys had a blast!

That's so funny they called you Fiona because your twin (Cameron Diaz) is the voice for her!
