On January 6th, Boyd and I flew out to Florida where we spent one night before boarding the Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship for a three day cruise to the Bahamas, courtesy of the pest control company Boyd sold for last summer and will be selling for again this summer. I had a lot of anxiety about leaving Evie, but I made it through without any tears (although I had to fight them back really hard on quite a few occasions) and managed to enjoy myself. 

Dinner on the ship.

Sister Lexi got to come. Our waiter was pretty awesome. Thought he was super funny with the flower on his head.

We were supposed to have two stops but were unable to make our first stop in Cocokay because the water was too choppy. It was a bit unfortunate, but we still had fun in Nassau.

My feet are in the water. That's how clear it was.

 Gorgeous, right?

It doesn't get much more tropical than this.

Love this mural! 

 Scooter time.

Rides like a champ.

She begged both of us to get braids. After a lot of prodding, Boyd finally gave in. She was hilarious. Every local that saw him after called him Bahama Papa. It was awesome.

Wish I could have taken this guy home.

It was nice to spend some quality time with Boyd and catch up on sleep. Vacationing is not the same once you have kids though. You never feel quite complete unless you have your entire family with you.  I sure was happy to see my girl!

How cute are you and Boyd! Looks like you 2 had such a great time. I couldn't imagine what it would be like leaving Evie home, but I am glad you were able to have some quality time together!!

This looks incredible! so so so fun!

Hey can I pick your brain about this pest control thing? I have heard of so so many people doing that. Does it just make such good money that it's worth moving for a few months? How does one get into it?

I am so glad you had fun! I would love to leave this snowy land I live in and see some sun and sand!

I totally understand leaving the baby and how hard that is, but you need to do it every so often just to reconnect. I am glad you had that chance!

how fun! and yes, beautiful.

the only cruise we've done is the cheapy one to ensenada/catalina island, and it left a bad taste in my mouth for cruises... but i think i should give them a second chance. maybe an alaskan cruise?!
