Bahama Momma (and a special souvenir)

We are back from vacation and well refreshed.  We had the best time with Bryan and Christina, and the end came way too fast.  We packed our days full of excitement, and ate our weight in food.

Here are a “few” pictures from our trip!

Finally on the ship!

We took some salsa lessons.  Boy was that a sight!

Ocean view every night at dinner was so nice.

Out near the pool area with Cade’s new piggy bank – a coconut monkey.

Friday morning, we got off the ship and went to the straw market.  We were looking for a specific brand of purse they sell over there, and we met this sweet girl, Tatiana.

When we told her what we were looking for, she took us this hole in the wall to make a deal.  Now, it pays to know somebody because I would have never been brave enough to step foot in this joint!

After the straw market, it was time to go snorkeling.  This was the best time ever!

Friday night was formal night.  Here we are at dinner.

After dinner, we changed our clothes and decided to take a trip to the Atlantis.  We got off of the ship again and met this man, “Big Bruh.”  Big Bruh is a music minister at a local church, and even has a praise and worship cd that he wrote and sings.  We had the best time talking and sharing with him.  I think he and Bryan are going to plan us a mission trip back to Nassau to do a revival!

This trip was really fun because Christina and me got pampered every day at the spa.  Here we are after our second day of treatments.  It was that good!

This girl is the BEST.MASSAGE.THERAPIST.EVER!  She gave me a massage in October and I was lucky enough to get her again.

Just seconds after the girls scored the perfect chairs at the back of the boat, the boys decided we should go play putt putt golf.  Since they had just paid for us a massage, we couldn’t tell them no.  So away we went!

Saturday night at dinner.

We had so much fun, and we were so sad to see it end:(

We made memories to last a lifetime, and are so thankful for the time we got to spend with good friends.

I didn’t take a picture of all of our loot, but I did manage to take a picture of a special souvenir.

We brought this back to give to my parents.  Rob and I found out on Wednesday that we are expecting another baby.  We are so grateful to God for His endless blessings upon our lives.  He gives and He takes away! 

While we are very early in our pregnancy, we have learned over the past year that life, no matter how short it may be, is worth celebrating.  We also know that each of you have walked with us through a very tough time in our lives, and we are asking you to please lift our family up in prayer.  We are so excited, but a little nervous.  We know that God saw fit to give us another child, and whatever He chooses to do with this child, He has it under control!
