Cruise Ship Fun

This is a picture from Aunt Barbara of part of the ship.

As you can see, the ship has a big slide on it, so a few of us had to try it out.

Here’s Lora first.

Then Jerald, her husband.

Next is Bill.

Then Aunt Sherri tried it.

Tricia rocked the slide.

This is Aunt Debbie, I just love her expression.

And still!!

Uncle Gary might have bit off a little more than he could handle.


Aunt Debbie did wait around for him just in case, while Alan comes busting down the slide.

Extreme close up of Alan.

A shot of some of our group in the hot tub, relaxing and having fun.

There was a lot of dancing going on but these two shots are the only ones that I got.

Uncle Gary by himself and Uncle Gary and Tricia.

There were 31 of us from our area that went on this cruise together.

Here are a few random shots of everyone in the big auditorium.

They have lots of different things to take part in for fun on the ship and one of them was being an alcohol mixologist.  Bill signed up for this and Alan and I were judges.  Bill won!  Here are a few exciting pictures of this.

I hope you enjoyed sharing our fun on the ship.

We had a great time!

Fun in Miami

I took these pictures after we boarded the ship.

This is what it looks like when you are pulling out of the port in Miami.

Beautiful, especially when you live in Missouri.  In February, Missouri is pretty drab, unless it is snow-covered.  Then it is pretty.  But, the weather, the palm trees, the tropical flowers in bloom, the slight breeze, aaaaahhhhh!  Need I say more?!

Smut (Mark), my cousin, Pam’s husband, looks like he is ready for some vacation!!

My cousin, Pam or Pedro to her best friends, is ready, too!

Big Ran and I just taking it all in.

Big Ran put a small down payment on this winter home for us!!  Yeah right!!

We are coming upon Miami beach.

Miami beach looks beautiful and crowded.

But wouldn’t you just love to have the option of going to the beach on a daily basis?!

Or even weekly?!

Aunt Sherri,  Angel, and I made the big screen!!

If you are thinking about going on a cruise, I definitely recommend it.  It is sooo relaxing.  No cooking, cleaning, working, no specific schedules, and great islands to explore.

San Juan

Yes, we did make it back from the Eastern Caribbean.

I am having issues with my camera downloading to the computer!

So here are a few pictures of our visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

This is a picture of the beach and a little waterfall.

It was beautiful!!


This is “Old San Juan”.

All the white that you see is the cemetery.

These are pictures of the fort.

The streets are very narrow there.  Even for walking!

We found a little cigar shop where they were making them right there in front of us.

They told us that they sell an average of 200 cigars a day.

We even did a little planking in Puerto Rico!!

San Juan, Puerto Rico

I will take lots of pictures and I am sure that this one is the best picture that you will see on this blog.

  But I will try.

There are about 30 people going with us on this cruise, family and friends.

Can’t wait!!

Big Ran (my hubby) and I are in Tampa, Florida for a few days.
He is at a conference and I am relaxing by the pool.
The weather is perfect here, 80 degrees.
We have been to the beach in Clearwater.
The sand there was white and felt like baby powder.
We are having a great time.
  Today we are going on a Trolly ride.
 Then I am going to get some shopping in.
  Life is good.
