Western Caribbean Cruise
In December Brad and I got to go on a 7-day cruise to Mexico and Honduras and it was tons of fun!! We left out of Galveston on Dec. 14 and came back just before Christmas on the 21st. We left Brody with my parents and he had a vacation on his own. Our first two days I was sea sick which was NOT fun. I felt like I was preggers all over again. But then I took off my motion sickness patch and just took a Dramamine and felt much better. Our first stop was Cozumel, Mexico. We rode ATVs through the jungle and got to see a few Mayan ruins which were pretty cool.
Our next stop was Roatan, Honduras. We went snorkeling on a private beach and saw some pretty cool coral reef. I also got to pet a shark which was kinda freaky. It felt like sandpaper, but a fun experience. We also got REAL cheap massages on the beach by some local Hondurans. It felt like I asked Brad to massage my back while he was watching an OU football game but still... a fun experience ;)
Our last stop was Costa Maya, Mexico. We rented a golf cart and just rode along the beach and viewed the beautifulness. It had been hit by a big hurricane so there were alot of locals fixing their little huts, and military men with AK 47s on top of roofs and hummers. (maybe to keep the peace from the crazy looters) jk Yes that was a little weird but we had fun laying on the beach and combing the sand for buried treasures.
By Thursday I was missing my little man. I wanted to launch one of the yellow dinghy's and sail home but I was having to much fun eating, laying out, eating, drinking strawberry daquiri's, eating, watching belly flop contests, and oh yeah, eating!!!!! From the cruise to holiday eating my New Year's resolution is to join a gym...jeez
