We all slept great on the first night of the cruise! The next morning, we got up, got ready, and headed to the buffet for breakfast.
My trick for getting a busy Cooper to smile for a picture?
Letting him do a silly face picture after his smile picture. Whatever works, right??
On a cruise, and this girl wanted cereal - haha.
She still likes silly face pictures, too!
Finally starting to see some land!
Nassau in the background.
Our first stop was a whole day in Nassau. Originally, we talked for a while about doing a dolphin excursion. After reading reviews of several different places in the Nassau area, we just didn't think it was the right way to go. Instead, we decided to do a full day at Atlantis's water park! We packed up all of our beach gear and disembarked the ship for our excursion!
We had a blast at the water park (all 7 of us - Laura, Gino, and Ben came, too). I don't really have many pictures because I kept my phone in a locker while we were busy playing. I did take my phone out at lunch (and while we had a little rain shower)
We spent so many hours playing, and truly all of us had so much fun. It is definitely an excursion that I would do again!
Walking back to our bus, we took some pictures around the resort.
Ready to get back on the boat and take a shower!
We had to wait in line to get back on the boat, but thankfully they had stations of cold water set up while we waited!
When we got back to our room, we had a new animal waiting for us! Some of us voted lobster, and some of us voted scorpion.
We all took showers and spent a good amount of time getting ready because this night was our "formal night" at dinner!
This handsome boy looked so good!
LL looked beautiful and got so many compliments on her dress!
I was so proud of the kids - they were so well-behaved at dinner each night (which isn't an easy task when dinner lasts between an hour and an hour and a half).
We were all worn out after our day at the water park. We went to bed early to rest up for our next day at the beach!
