I *heart* The Bahamas

We just got back from a week long trip to the Bahamas.  We actually hit 3 different islands this time!  We visited the usuals, New Providence (Nassau) and Grand Bahama, but also took a quick excursion to Grand Exuma!  I actually flew in a tiny little 6-seater plane! The Bahamas is an archipelago of over 700 islands and cays, just so you know.  We had an awesome time and it's always great spending time with family.

Just thought I'd share a few pics--I didn't take a whole lot this time around...

Picking cherry tomatoes, or "tomats" as they're called.

Cruisin' the Nassau streets.

Junkanoo Beach

Probably my best "selfie" to date.

Spending time at the beach house.

My boys, minus 1.

That darn little plane and the pilot!!  I had to get talked into this.

Grand Exuma island. Me and hubs biked about 5 minutes from our cottage to this gorgeous secluded beach.

Mango daiquiri.

Hanging out with family on Grand Bahama island.

Our last day there, this little one FINALLY got his feet wet.  He was not feeling the ocean. lol

Happy New Year!

So it's officially 2013.  It is also officially a really gloomy, rainy day in the A(tl).  I'm assuming most of the east is having fairly crummy weather.  To brighten things up a bit--here are a few pics of me and the boys at the beach over the holiday.  

Now, before you begin to curse the day I was born, I must confess that for me it wasn't really beach weather.  The whole time we were in Nassau, the high temps were in the high 70s and a few times touched 80 degrees.  Not to mention, the water this time of year is cold as heck.  I need it to be a good 85 degrees to make me want to get in water.  Nevertheless, it was perfect to layout in and watch Max play in the ocean as if it was as warm as a bath.  Rock on, little man.

Hope 2013 brings all of you plenty of accomplishments, blessings and fun!

Grand time in Grand Bahama

Hey all!  Sorry for lack of posts, but I just got back from visiting some of my husband's family in Freeport, Grand Bahama!  A trip was in order for me and the youngest babe's birthdays.  Mine is the 17th and his is the 19th--shout out to all my Cancer readers out there!  We thought it would be nice to celebrate over there, not to mention, there were still people on that side of hub's fam that hadn't seen the baby.  We had a great time.  I'll leave ya with few beach pics, since that is a major highlight of the trip, especially to Max.  :)

Have a great Monday!
