Christmas in October?

For Christmas last year my parents gave my family a cruise to the Southern Carribean. Since there were 14 of us that went, it took a lot of scheduling and planning to finally figure out a time we could all go. So...10 months later and here we are enjoying our Christmas present. We flew to Puerto Rico and stayed the night.





The next morning we went to the Puerto Rico's old town fort. It was really awesome and old!

Royal Carribean's Adventure of the Sea



They have tons of fun activites on the boat. Rock climbing, mini golf, ice skating, and of course gambling. Bingo!



Formal nights!





Welcome to St. Lucia! Kory and I liked this island the most.





Kory and I were very happy to be scuba certfied at a time like this. We saw all kinds of awesome sea life and crazy coral. I had never seen a real sea horse, but now I can say I have. He was very cute!



My brother Steve and his Wife Tiffany are also scuba certified so we went diving together.



When we got to the island of St. Thomas we hopped on a ferry and went to St. John so we could go snorkel at Trunk Bay. I think this is one of the the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen.



We had a fun time body surfing on the waves. Believe it or not, this is the same place as the picture above. It suddenly got cloudy and rainy so we didn't stay for too long.



Family at Cokie Beach


This picture is taken at Cokie Beach. There was a lot of great snokeling here. Kory and I did another dive near this beach and I held this weird creepy puffy cucumber worm thing that looked like a big rug.



We got off the cruise ship sunday morning and spent the day in Pueto Rico.


We hiked down though the rain forest and saw this awesome water fall.

We had a lot of fun and made some fun family memories that we will never forget. Thanks for the fun trip mom and dad!
