Home Sweet (but cold) Home

Like I expected last week flew by and we are already back home to the cold and the snow. The cruise was fabulous and very relaxing. I didn't love the food as much as last year or hearing and reading everything in 6 different languages, but it was a nice get a way. We visited Magen's beach in St. Thomas, which we were told was a Top 10 beach in the world, toured the Bacardi factory in Puerto Rico, and went to the Atlantis in the Bahamas and all in all had a great time.

If you watch the Amazing Race this slide should look familiar. This was the slide (named the Leap of Faith) that the one girl ( I can't remember her name) wouldn't go down and they ended up losing because of it. Well, Josh and I can happily say that we went down the slide and it was so cool. We rode about 6 water slides at the Atlantis and it was well worth the money not worth how sore and bruised we were the next days.
So here we are back in cold snowy Ohio, tanned and tired and ready to take on the 4 day work week and hoping it goes just as fast as vacation did.
More photos and stories to come!

    A cruise, what fun! I would definitely go down that slide, it looks like too much fun! My Hubby and I honeymooned in St Thomas overe 25 years ago andwe visited Magen Bay Beach! It was beautiful!

  5. I had to comment on the reference to 'The Amazing Race'. Love that show and was heartbroken that the girl was unable to go down the slide. I could never imagine such fear over a slide but I am sure I have my own fears that would stop me in my tracks. Just visiting again from Lynnette's.

  6. My parents own a time share with the Atlantis and LOVE this slide. :0) I stopped by from Lynnette's Blog today. Merry Christmas.
