Lilee's B/D Party

On Sunday the 19th we celebrated Lilee's 3rd B/D at Chuck E Cheese just as we did the other 4 kids 3rd B/D's.

Lilee waiting to leave for her party.

She got to ride in style in her new big girl car seat that she picked out herself.

Lilee's balloons that reserved her long row of tables.

Which were filled up with most of her family that came to celebrate.

Lilee getting her B/D medal from her B/D party coordinator.

Waiting to blow out her candles.

After many tries she finally blew them out.

A blurry picture ( sorry) with Chuck E. I was so proud of her she was not one bit afraid of him! (Sara Ava was terrified of him at her party.)

Lilee riding a game w/ her big brother Jordan......

and playing ski ball with mommy.

Then before we knew it the party was over. Lilee had so much fun that she had to open presents when she got home, because she did not even have time to open them at her party.

Hope you had a wonderful third B/D party Lilee! We love you so much!!!!

Wednesday was spent at sea relaxing.......

and trying to stay out of the sun best we could since we had gotten burnt so badly the first day in Freeport.

We played miniature golf ..........

and while Joel begged us to go to camp I sat out and read on our balcony. This was something I had been looking forward to since I never get the chance to read and do nothing.

This was out last night so we got all dress up for dinner .

Joel was dancing along with everyone as they sang the farewell song.

We came back to find our last little towel animal. Still not sure if it was a Dinosaur, giraffe, or a turtle???????

We woke up the next day and was off the ship and back on the road a 7:40 am in Port Canaveral, Fl. We arrived home after stopping in Florence, SC to pick up 2 of the kids at 7 pm. And boy was I tired. I am the driver in the family because Karlton makes me to nervous when he drives. If that is what you call it. LOL.....
Hope you enjoyed our trip with us as much as we did!!!! I know I over loaded you with pictures ... Sorry.... that's just who I am. I love to take pictures and I love to share them. Its my pride and joy!

Am I Boring You All????

Why is no one leaving a comment? Am I boring you with to many pictures from our trip? I promise I am almost finished.........Lol.................. I do want to Thank my few faithful comment leavers!!!

Day 4 - Part 2 - UPDATED

After lunch at Hard Rock we caught a taxi to Paradise Island to go to Cabbage Beach. Which is right beside the Atlantis.

This was the path we took to the beach.

It was pretty crowded where the path dumped us . So me being who I am said lets walk down the beach until we run out of people.

Plus it was a good plan because the ways became easier for Joel. The waves were to brutal where they broke at the shore line, to much for Joel to handle. They told me they had California waves that day.

This is my kind of water! Clear..... I will get in if I can see the bottom and my toes!LOL!

Then we made it down to a private beach area that had a huge rock.

Karlton swam around it to the other side. I climbed over the very sharp rock to meet him.

Then we started jumping off the mini cliffs.

Joel went first.....

Karlton waiting on me to jump in which I did after I made him wait a long time! Ha!

Karlton got out to dive in a few times.

We were on a private beach in front of Barry Bond and Oprah's houses. A lady informed us that the houses sold for 16.5 million in that area. Nice huh!!!!!!!!!!!

Oprah's House

Barry Bonds house

Then it was time to leave our gorgeous beach to go back to get cleaned up for dinner.

Joel not that happy about it either! None of us were really.........
When we got back to our room to get cleaned up for dinner this is what was waiting on us. A towel bunny.

Then we went to eat more casually for dinner and this was our view.

God's hand definitely shown down on us this whole amazing trip! Thank You God for all the beauty you have made and that we have gotten to experience!

After we went to a show we came back to our room to find this cute little guy hanging up on our curtains. :0)

Stay tuned one more day to go.........
