bahama mama

This vacation hit the spot in so many ways. It was just what we needed as a family and as a couple. I know I was just so burnt out of everything and I needed to get away from it ALL! No stay-cation would have done what this trip did.

We went on a cruise to the Bahamas and HAD A BLAST! This was our first cruise and our first time in the Bahamas. It was our daughter's first time at the beach. (We really want to go on another cruise in the future and would love to hear your stories.)

Nothing beats sailing away from Miami and seeing a beautiful sunset.

The stops were Port Lucaya/Freeport, Nassau, and Great Stirrup Cay. Three fun filled days of sun, sand, and smiles. Even though I ended up coming home with a slight burn my baby is so tan!

No matter what was going on or where we were she always got her nap in. Her airplane seat, the stroller on the beach, Mom & Dad's arms at the airport (that one was 2 hours!), in the stroller at restaurants, etc.

I was banned from taking my dSLR on the beach, by my husband. In the end I'm so glad he didn't let me take it. The sand was just like big flakes for salt and stuck to everything. This was different than the sand I remember in CA or FL. These were all taken with our point & shoot little camera.
