So over the weekend, we went to the Bahamas (I know!) to celebrate our anniversary. It was a wedding anniversary for JP and me, but it was also a sort of anniversary for Fly, who visited the Bahamas in utero on our "babymoon."
Although it's been a year and a half since Fly got his passport
, this was his first international trip. (Come to think of it, it was also his first out-of-state trip.)
But Fly discovered some aspects of international travel aren't all that glamorous, like waiting in lines at the cruise port before the sun even rose.
The promise of getting on a big boat helped, though.
And it was great to look out our cabin window and see the ocean.
The cabin was small, and the beds were slightly more comfortable than ambulance stretchers, and some characters think it's funny to photograph people while they are sleeping.
When we settled into our resort in Port Lucaya, we discovered in a cruel slap from Mother Nature that the temperature was actually a bit cooler in the Bahamas than it was at home. For about two hours, though, it was warm enough to play on the beach.
We also spent some time in the marketplace square, which couldn't be more charming.
At nighttime, there is live music in the square. Fly asked me to dance.
But he quickly turned his attention to another woman.
I couldn't compete with that.
It was fun going back to the same place we went to three years ago, only this time with friends
-- and a toddler.
Not much had changed there since last time. See? Here I was, six months pregnant with Fly:
And back again, four months along with our little Junebug:
Even if I couldn't enjoy the fruity Bahama Mama drinks, I guess I kind of am a Bahama Mama.
JP and I are so glad we went back -- and we feel so blessed to have each other and celebrate another year of togetherness.
