Addie got asked to prom!!

Addie turns 16 on the 16th of April and prom is the 20th so she is old enough by eight days! Rashon Norman asked her to the dance. It was really cute he came out to our house to ask if he could ask her...I didn't know boys did things like that:). Addie said, "he's not dumb!"

Our last stop was Lebadee, Haiti. That is Royal Caribbeans own private island so no we didn't get to see the real Haiti.  We had a fun day at the beach though! We made sand castles, swam, went on a roller coaster ride, had a bar-bq at the beach, and went para sailing.  Lots of good memories made!

Porter, Addie and I got to go para sailing. It was fun to get to go with the kids! I thought I was going to get to go two different times because they wouldn't let kids under 16 go they just put all three of us together.  When we came down the boat driver said," I have to confess, I have never done that before but we had a good wind & you three are small so I tried it!

Ryan back surgery #2

Ryan had back surgery in August and in January it went out again. So here we are again! He had pre-op yesterday and we r waiting to go into surgery now. He came in at 11:20 & surgery was suppose to be at 1:30...we will just wait longer:) he at least has some good drugs so he's not in a lot of pain. He is pretty funny he will be talking then fall asleep & then wake up and talk about something completely different:). When we checked into our hotel we were greeted with an awesome sign that said Welcome guest of the day Ryan Robertson. They upgraded our room and we had a nice card, chocolate, & a water for us:)

Georgetown, Grand Cayman

Our ship, the Independence of the seas

Swimming & feeding the sting rays!  This was really cool...Addie, Raygn, & Aleigha didn't think it was very cool.  Our guide told us sometimes it is fun to watch other people...he should have recorded the show in front of him:) Aleigha was screaming, Addie was climbing up my back with her legs out of the water, Raygn was trying to climb on Ryan, Porter said he was a little scared, I myself was a little scared too because they swim right next to your legs. After Addie, Aleigha, and Raygn got back in the boat Porter, Ryan & I held them and swam with them! It was really amazing!

Our guide then took us to rum point were we ate some jerk chicken, then around the bend he said we could find starfish.  He was diving for them and Raygn found one and I found about 4 more!  They were so pretty. The water and sand was gorgeous, it almost looked fake the kids said!

On our way back our guide took us thru a man grove, trees that grow in water, then he stopped one more time and dove down in the ocean and showed us some sea urchins, we could feel them moving in our hands!

Activities on the ship

The ship had an awesome water park for the kids. I think we swam every day! There was a rock wall, basketball court, miniature golf & a surf simulator/flow rider. Porter, Raygn & I took private lessons it was fun!!

running through the sprinklers they had so much fun!

knee surfing! so much fun!

when you crash the water washes you up the slope it is so powerful!

Raygn on the flow rider!

  Aleigha was the photographer on these next few! Me trying to ride the flow rider.  It looked so simple but I could only stay up for about 10seconds. (was the longest)

about to crash!

Raygn stepped off the board...

so he is getting washed up!

giving it another shot you can see the line and everyday that line was that long:( see the big guy in line the water even washed him up it was amazing.  It didn't hurt though.

Raygn being amazing!!

hold on...

climbing the rock wall, I had Kasia's flat stanley with me on this trip!

Porter getting ready to climb in a kids timed race up the wall.  He hasn't climbed for 3/4years and he went up in 45 seconds!  He won!!
