Caribbean Cruise

This past week my mom, sisters, and I took a girl's trip to the Caribbean! We cruised on the Royal Caribbean and visited the southern islands of the Caribbean. We visited Puerto Rico, Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten, and St. Croix (Virgin Islands). We had a blast soaking up the sun on the beautiful beaches, snorkling, parasailing, jeep riding, and exploring on all of the amazing islands. The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed hanging out with just the girls. It was a great trip and a wonderful way to celebrate my mom's birthday. What a trip!

Day One: Puerto Rico

Day Two: Barbados

Day Three: St. Lucia

Day Four: Antigua

Day Five: St. Maarten

Day Six: St. Croix (Virgin Islands)

You arn't a real boy until...

you get your first set of stitches. Connor had a rough accident today and got eight stitches right in between his eyes. He had two deep gashes that resulted in four stitches in each gash. We are just grateful that he is ok and that it was his skin and not his eye that got punctured. We were able to get into a plastic surgeon about an hour after the accident, and he stitched up Connor very carefully. Hopefully the scarring will be minimal if there is any scarring at all...but if not....chicks dig scars right?! It's times like these when you realize just how much you love your child and how precious life is. Connor was so brave during the whole ordeal and is recovering nicely, poor guy. What a day!
