Western Caribbean Cruise 07

Last November we went on our 5th cruise to the Caribbean. Our stops were Belize, Roatan (Honduras), Freeport (Bahamas) and our favorite - Cozumel. Our friends the Tanners came with us as well as some of Joe's family. We had a really fun time and can't wait for our next cruise coming up in October this year!
Did we ever use the slide you ask? Nope, but the beach chair were nice with a good book!
Roatan, Honduras - it's so gorgeous here. This is by far the most "3rd world" of all our stops. We've been here a few times and nothing changes. But the scenery (minus the sad little houses) is gorgeous and the Scuba Diving very exotic.

I made these ruins in Belize my personal stair master! :-)
Joe's Dad is pointing at the Viagra leaves from this plant. YES, this really is where the plant used in making Viagra!
Wouldn't she make a nice purse strap?
The architecture of these ruins in Belize is amazing. Look at all the curved edges. Really advance architecture for that time period.
We all rented mopeds in Cozumel and drove around the island. You can see the ocean all the way around on the highways. It was beautiful and I'm sure glad we didn't crash. Seriously, they've got some major pot holes on their highways!

Takes my breath away......Joe that is! :-)

Poor, sad little pony!

Can you see all the stingrays Joe is swimming over. There was about six of them. Also, just before this we had to swim through THOUSANDS of these tiny jelly fish. I was totally panicking. You'd just be snorkeling along and then all of the sudden, BAM, they were all around you and there's no choice but to swim through them or else you'll get stung trying to go back. Yuck. This happened over and over in this snorkeling area. I can honestly say I was more scared with the jellyfish than when we swam with sharks!

Uh, Matt, you're not supposed to touch the CORAL! :-)
Oh, la la. Joe's parents stealing a kiss at dinner!

Courtney has the best poses ever. I could never get away with that pose and she still looks cute!

I love the sexy pose Jon! Save it for Court though!

Well, it was a fun trip and I can't wait for the next one! Any other cruisers out there?

Oh man I was thinking you had just done all these things recently, that is why you hadn't been blogging lately. But good for you to go back and get them in here.

I love the "deviled egg" cute are they??

Josh and I just cruised around Alaska in May, we loved it. We can't wait to go on another one. And what a change it will be to go where the sun is, and not where the weather is 45 degrees. Where are you doing in October?? Let us know when you find another good deal. We said it would be more fun to go with a bunch of friends.

How FUN!!!! I love cruises.
Your blog is so cute.
About the yummy smelling jasmine- where did you get it? I need some for my teeny tiny back yard.
How is Acheivement days? We have a pool party coming up. Talk to ya soon. Sara

Sara, you can get jasmine at Lowes or home depot. Make sure it's the Star Jasmine (white, star shaped flowers). They'll need a trellis and plenty of morning sun. Mine don't bloom as long as they should b/c they don't get enough morning sun. They don't like afternoon sun though. As for Ach.Days - I am lame w/o you! I havn't done one yet! How bad is that. I so need to get inspiration and ideas from you. Lets chat soon!
