Return from the Cruise...

These are my legs, getting fried in the sun! Mike made me endure a bike ride around this private Island, and then an 8 hour lay out session in the BLAZING HEAT.
This is by far the coolest people we met during the cruise. We ate dinner with them every night, and got the insight to the scandalous escapades going on after hours. When I mean after hours....I mean after hours. Every night their usual bedtime was 5:00am. Yikes, we were in bed by 8:30pm.

Wow, it's a good thing I lost these sunglasses on the cruise!
We loved all the extra activities to take our mind off shopping. All I wanted was a sun hat. Unfortunately for me and my ant head, none of them fit.
It was overcast this day on the ship, so we took time to enjoy the amenities. Nothing like roof top golfing, overlooking the ocean!

This was a fun day. We had a full day on the boat, so they put together some "spring break" games on the top deck. Nothing like a hairy chest contest, dance contest, and some ice sculpture carvings to round out the day.
We had a great stop at Turks and Cacaos. We did some power snorkeling, and enjoyed a tour around the Island.
This kiss is for Owie!

This trip was great, but I do not recommend leaving your children when they are as cute as Owen. You miss them too much!
Lastly, I just want to thank my mom. She flew all the way out from Ohio to watch Owen for a whole week. He had a blast with grandma, and we all really miss her. Thanks for all the love and care you gave our precious son.

Easter Visit

We had the great pleasure of Mike's brother, JJ, and his family coming to join us for a couple days before Easter. We stayed busy, until the torrential down pour we had on Saturday. Rain sure puts a damper on things!!! Other than that minor set back it was great having them for a visit.When you have 3 little girls invade your home, you are bound to find a dress on just about anyone.

Paige kept Owen laughing the entire time she was here!!!

Owen's favorite pass time...driving his cars. (Bentley, he does plan on returning your train!!)

Where's Liz?

I have to admit, I have never fallen off the blogging wagon this long. However, it's with good reason people...Mike and I have collectively decided, I think, to come out with our news that we are expecting another baby!! I have had great check ups, and I have been sufficiently SICK, so I think I am in the clear to announce the news. I am due Oct. 20th, and I am currently 13 weeks. We are really excited, and looking forward to creating a playmate for Owen.

Mike and I take off next week for our cruise to the Caribbean. I am just praying that I will be past this morning, afternoon, and evening sickness before Sunday. I have never been on a cruise, so I am not quite sure what to get excited for. If YOU have been on a cruise...what are the highlights???? I need to get myself excited, so I can get through one more week of throwing up on the porcelain thrown. Anyway, it's good to be back to share my news. Be looking for more posts from Easter and our trip.
