Dale's 18th Birthday....OMG!!!!

This is a picture of Dale trying out his new's his Nikon D40 that he got for his 18th Birthday and he loves it! And I actually was able to keep it a surprise...sheewww! This is a shot of him at a controlled burn with the fire department. Speaking of the fire that he is 18, Dale will become a full member next week! There have only been a small handful of cadet members that hang in there and "graduate" into full members. I am very very proud of him... ;0)

What a great escape!

Amber and I sitting outside Margaritaville in Cozumel Mexico...waiting for the rest of the crew....
A shot of the pool from the upper deck...the pool was filled with salt water from the Sea and there were two hot tubs at each end. The wild thing was watching the pool water sway from side to side on Tuesday night as the seas were rough and the wind was blowing about 32 mph. Can you say HOLD ON!!!!

Just a few of us after dinner.....we had a blast!

The "Tail" on our ship....this is where the smoke stacks are hidden

In Mexico...that is our ship directly behind us... The Carnival Imagination/The Fun Ship!

Towel animals that were left on our bed everynight.

The Southernmost point of the USA...90 miles from Cuba

Getting ready to leave the Port of Miami for our 4 day cruise

A view from the top deck on the ship as we were leaving Miami. We kept looking for Herachio Cane to drive by in his black hummer. (CSI Miami)

Well fine folks....I can't believe that the time has finally arrived. Eight looooong months ago Chris & I planned a cruise and the time hath arrived! Ready for a good laugh...I DONT LIKE BOATS! Well at least I used to hate boats let me splain sumfin' ...

In this strange and unpredictable world, I have come to realized that every night when we go to sleep we will never get today why waste a day? I have learned that the world is not going to come find me, I have to go find the world. I will never experience things unless I give in and try them, even if only once, I MUST TRY...

So in the past year I have done quite a few new things....

learned how to study

learned how to take a test

learned how to pass a test

learned to tolerate a small boat

learned to fish

actually touched a fish

learned to clam

learned to trust again


...and the list shall continue

Our cruise takes us from Miami, to Key West, to Cozamel Mexico and then the sea for a day...then back to Miami on Friday. I will post pic's really soon.....Love ya's
