Me and my love feeling fancy on formal night.
When we returned from dinner, this cute pup, wearing my sunglasses, was waiting for us.
The view in Roatan, Honduras.
A guide saw me taking the above picture and took pity on us. He took this picture for us.
All harnessed up and ready for the zip line.
This is me. I don't know how well you can tell, but the drop below was quite astounding.
My sexy man going as fast as he can on the zip line. (You get to control your own speed.)
Proof that we ate well, and had a great view while doing it.
This was our ship docked in Roatan.
I know you're all checking out my hot hubby, so you won't notice my crazy sunburned chest.
This was the beach we played at in Belize.

We found our own beach to play on in Cozumel. Do you see the little crab by the tip of nose?
Here is little crab's close up. I liked following him around. I think he wasn't so fond of me though.
Click on the picture for a close up. Matt had just pelted James with a sand ball.
I was sad not to have any buckets to make a sand castle with, so I used the skills I had and made a sand cake. Don't you like the sea shell topper and sea weed "flowers"?
A couple of monkeys. This is James' "must keep my eyes open for the picture" look.

Last night at dinner. Starting at the bottom left, moving from left to right, then up and to the left again:
Jenny (sister), Becky (sister), Scott (Becky's hubby), Mandy (sister), Jason (Mandy's hubby,) up, Me (James' wife) James (coolest person in the world), Roy (Dixie's hubby), Dixie (Mom), Matt (brother), Ramie (Matt's wifey), Doug (Jenny's hubby).
Man, what a trip. We had a lot of fun but we were glad to come home to be grown ups again. Believe me, sometimes we did not act like grownups while on this trip.
The highlights of our trip that aren't photographed include me and Dixie singing Karaoke, Jason becoming the ships belly flop champion, watching Mandy plow over two old women so she could win a point for the women in the battle of the sexes game, watching the love and marriage show and laughing till our sides hurt, holding a jelly fish, seeing dolphins, playing the Quest game which included James wearing lipstick among other things, and many more fun activities.
When we got home, we compared notes with my Mom who had also just gotten home from a cruise. She's cruised a quite a bit, and we wondered if she had every cruised with Royal Caribbean. She hadn't. And from what it sounded like, Royal Caribbean is the way to go. James and I were blown away by how incredibly nice the whole staff was. Too bad they haven't paid me for this free advertising, but I would completely and totally recommend cruising with Royal Caribbean. It was awesome!
We're a happy family! James installs cable, and I'm a stay at home mom. I really enjoy baking and decorating cakes. James really enjoys supporting me in what I do. Mostly, we just love hanging out as a family.
