Trip of a Lifetime

 We just returned from a cruise to the Bahamas.  (We took 419 pictures, so I will post a few at a time.)  It was the Singing at Sea cruise which is an annual cruise with about 25 Southern Gospel singing groups.  They rent the whole ship.  The bars and casino are closed.  They play beautiful instrumental Christian music over the speakers in the public areas.  There are concerts all the time and 2 or 3 Bible studies each day.  We took Meagan, Erin, Heather, Laura, Kara, Leah, and Nanna, and both sets of grandparents.  Autumn & Krissy stayed home with their babies.
 Our first stop in the Bahamas was in Freeport.  We didn't get off for very long.  We probably spent less than an hour walking around and shopping.
There were many little booths of "junk" with people sitting there, calling out for us to come look at all their treasures...."Just $5!"  Leah bought a beautiful conch shell.  Some of the girls bought t-shirts.  Laura & Nanna bought a wooden dolphin.

  1. Sounds like a great family vacation! I am already jealous of the blue skies and warm temperatures!
