Cruise Pictures

Alright, I've finally got my act together to post my cruise pictures. My entire family went (on my mother's side) including her two brother's families, summing up to sixteen people. Once again, I'll narrate like I did with the Puerto Rico pictures.



First we stayed in Florida. Here is my cousin Jacob and my uncle Bob relaxing on some hammocks...



The boys were tired...



Bob plays with Carlee in the water...



We met up with Steve, Rena, Steve and Bailey which was really cool...



My mom never put Carlee down...



Di with the wild, sexy hair... (compliment her later!)



My gram and I (she's one of my favorite people)...



My uncle Steve and aunt Rena (miss them down in SC)...



This one is priceless: my gram and mom singing karaoke to "Love Shack"...



Kalon, Bob and Carlee on the boat...



The boys in black...



My mom and I on formal night...



Carlee in her foreign napkin-made bonnet...



...and another napkin bonnet...



My brother, always dancing with my grandmother no matter how old he is...



My mother and aunt Nancy singing karaoke, this time to "Mrs. Robinson"...

The ports: We sailed out of Miami, and our first stop was Halfmoon Cay in the Bahamas...



This is our boat, the Triumph...



I went parasailing (which probes amazing thinking)...



The beach...



Then we went to St. Thomas...



Lying on the beach...



More of the beach...



Then we went to San Juan, Puerto Rico...



In front of a fountain in a pubic square...



They have really cool architecture there...



We went to Senor Frogs and got a little silly; my brother and I sung and danced for a while, mostly hard core to "Hey Ya"...



My mom and brother...



On the ceiling of the bar...



Our last stop was Grand Turk...



We hung out at Margaritaville--this is us in the pool...



Everyone in front of the boat...



Back on the boat, my brother and I...



My mom and Bob at the pool...



Amazing sunset...



Me watching the sunset slash thinking on the balcony...



The girls in tie dye...



My mom with the napkin bonnet...



And finally, my whole family posing in pastels (yes, we were that family)...

Let me know what you think of the pictures. My family had such a good time; it was really nice to have a set time where we all came together to hang out and catch up. We surely will not forget this experience...

You will never know how much I enjoyed reading this and seeing it through your eyes. This was a once in a lifetime trip for the Blanchards!!!

That was soooo cool Jami. I agree with Diane, to see how you really did enjoy this experience - which I did too (tremendously). I'm hoping that it should happen again.

It was definitely a great trip with great people...
