Yesterday Karl and I decided to take the kids out for a picnic and some fishing out at Diamond Fork. Griffin just wanted to play in the water which he wasn't very happy when I wouldn't let him and Fischer got a little whiny, but overall it was nice to be out and about on a beautiful day. We didn't catch anything but we enjoyed our little family time and eating a picnic in the back of the truck.

This past week Karl and I left the kids at Grandma & Grandpa's house and went on a cruise to the Caribbean to celebrate our upcoming 10 year anniversary. It was SO much fun.
Afterwords Karl entered a Table Tennis match and ended up winning the Bronze Medal
That night we had our first formal dinner night.
Tuesday Karl and I got up early to catch pictures of the sunrise. I'm so glad we did because the view was breathtaking.
I have to say swimming with and feeding the stingrays was way cooler then I expected it to be. It was one of the highlights of the trip. They were so agile and quick to move between every one's legs. Definitely an excursion I would do again, it was really neat.
We also got an all day pass to go down the waterslide.
The cruise was a lot of fun. They had amazing entertainment and shows the entire time. There was always something going on and things to see. There really wasn't a boring moment. The food was great, the activities and events were fun and the company was even better. Thanks Karl for joining me on this adventure together. Had a great time and can't wait for our next trip.

Entering the Island of Grand Cayman
Our excursion in Grand Cayman consisted of swimming with the stingrays and snorkeling.
Heading out to see the stingrays.
|This particular area had a sea bench which was only waist high in some places (the turquoise color) then it just drops into deep water (the dark blue)|
|Karl and I holding this monsterous sting ray|
|These things would literally come right to you and brush there bodies against your chest, legs and back.|
|This is a picture of the boat we were on taken from the dock.|
Later that afternoon after playing on the Island we signed Karl up to do a longest yard golf competition held in the Golf Simulator on the ship.
Wouldn't you know it...Karl took the silver medal in that event
On Wednesday we arrived in Jamaica. I thought Jamaica was so beautiful. It was personally my favorite Island to see.

Dolphin Cove was a fun. They provided us with a yummy Jamaican chicken dish and had a bunch of other wildlife and entertainment for us to enjoy.
We got to see a pirate show with the sharks.
|This lady was holding one of the sharks.|
|An iguana chilling out on a bench|
We got to feed and interact with the parrots.
Later that day we were then taken to Dunns River Falls where we hiked the waterfall.
|This is the base of the falls that goes into the ocean|
|Almost to the top of the falls|
|I loved listening to the local music.|
|This is Karl walking up to the waterslide.|
