My Vacation ~pics and stuff
First, I want to thank all of you for supporting my blog while I was away. How delightful it was to return home and find your comments and tweets. We had an awesome time and I am slowly catching up.
For those who weren't aware, I was on vacation from June 30 to July 17. My family and I traveled to New Jersey, spent time at my brother-in-laws and then went on a 10 day 9 Night Bermuda/Caribbean Cruise with close to thirty family members. All of this was made possible by my fabulous in-laws who sponsored the trip.
We visited the port of Kings Wharf, Bermuda where my hubby and I took a bus tour of the island while my children went on a catamaran snorkel expedition. In St. Martin, we went on a snuba-snorkel excursion. This was neat, it's where you wear a regulator hooked to a tube that is connected to an oxygen tank on a raft above you. It allows you to experience scuba diving without being certified. This chick will not be getting certified. I am claustrophobic and had no idea, that being under water would make me feel trapped. I went down and after a few moments had to return to the surface, where I snorkeled and floated on a raft. My kids did awesome, but the hubby and I will not be doing it again! In San Juan we explored the city, saw a fort and shopped till we dropped. Labadee Haiti was awesome. We sat in beach chairs, swam in the crystal clear waters and yes..i did the zip-line. This is the longest zip-line over water and it was friggin amazing. On the ship we wined and dined, swam in the pool, watched a cool ice show and had a wonderful time with our family. Of course while in NJ, we ate our fair share of soft pretzels and enjoyed some of our favorite foods; meatball parms and Philly cheese steaks, NJ silver queen corn and tomatoes..yum! After that and the cruise..we never want to look at food again!
I did manage to read 3 books on my list while on vacation and those reviews will post soon.
