I'm back . . .

Well, sorry for the lack of posting around here. I am back from my vacation aboard the fabulous Disney Wonder!!! So, while I don't have anything stamped to share with you today, I *do* have a few vacation pics if you are interested . . .

This first picture was taken on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay. This was actually the last stop on our cruise, but it is a beautiful photo of the Wonder and the Bahamas. Just look at the white sand beach, crystal clear water, and cool Caribbean sky!!! Breathtaking! The smaller ship near the aft end of the Wonder is actually The Flying Dutchman - Davy Jones' ship from The Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Neat, huh? We spent the morning here relaxing in the ocean and collecting shells along the shore.

This picture is of the Atlantis Paradise Island resort and casino. We traveled here on a shore excursion to take the Discover Atlantis tour of the amazing marine habitats they have. I am glad we took a guided tour because this place is sprawling and I am not entirely sure we would have been able to navigate it on our own! We saw lots of animals here, including eagle rays which were my favorite. We also got to pet a live conch snail, a starfish, a sea cucumber, and some horseshoe crabs - fun!!!

Among all of the things to do on the ship, meeting and greeting the Disney characters was by far Kaleigh's favorite thing to do. We purchased an autograph book on the first night and by the third and final evening it was full! We met princesses and pirates and all of our favorite Disney pals!!! Here we are with Captain Mickey on the first day of our trip. Sorry that the picture quality is not better, but the lighting in the lobby left something to be desired . . . All in all it was a fabulous trip! Our only complaint was that is wasn't long enough!!! We are already planning our next trip, in a few years - lol! It was hard to return to the dullness of everyday life after such excitement, but it must be done. I am hoping to get some stamping time later today, so check back soon to view my latest project . . . *wink*

Wow! I want to go there! We took a Bahamas cruise several years ago. I always say that was the life I was meant to live!! Food everywhere you turn...you mess up your room to go to dinner and you come back and it is all clean!! Ahhh!! Glad you had fun!

our first cruise as a family was on a Disney Ship. I think it was the Wonder, too. My kids loved the clubs that they had for them, especially the one where they were making flubber. My dh and I couldn't get them out of that room to come back to the cabin and go to bed. Since that cruise we have been on a cruise every year. It's our most favorite way to travel.
