Back to Reality! and Training!!

Well people, I am back to the real world. Back from the sunny warm waters of the Caribbean and the all you can eat buffets on the cruise ship to the warm sticky hot temperatures in Memphis. It was a great two weeks, but it seemed to go really fast. SO this post is my vacation recap. We (my wife) took 637 pictures on vacation and I want to share them all with you! Just kidding, but there are going to be a lot of pictures on this post, so enjoy.

Vacation Recap: We spent a week on the Carnival Dream cruise ship which took us to the Bahamas, St Thomas and St Marten. We then spent the second week on the Atlantic side of Florida, chilaxing on the beach with no tar balls! This vacation was a bunch of firsts for me. My 1st cruise, my 1st time out of the country, 1st time needing a passport, 1st time in clear waters and my 1st time eating a bunch of different foods. It was my 1st time going down a water slide on a boat in the middle of the ocean and my first time trying to learn the dance from MJ's Thriller! So yeah, it was a great time.

And I did get some training in while I was gone. I tried to run on the boat, but that day the water was choppy and the treadmill kept moving, which made it tough. I also would swim at he condo and run on the beach, so I guess I got about 4 hours swimming and about 15 miles running. Now on to the pics!

This was our ship, the Carnival Dream!
