Viva Bahamas!

So, being the most amazing husband that he is, Russell surprised me with a trip to the Bahamas!! It was so beautiful and we did so many fun things.. so sorry for all the pictures, we couldn't help but share. We will definitely be going back again someday.









Russell has heard me talk about wanting to swim with Dolphins a lot, so he decided to plan that into our trip. You'll see pictures of that in a little bit. Here is us hanging out with a couple of Sea Lions..they were so much fun!



If you know me, you know I have a passion for the ocean. I love everything about it...including sharks!! I'm the dork that watches shark week intently every year. They had a big tank of about 21 sharks, maxing out at about 14 feet long, and Russ and I decided we would go take a swim with them. There were Caribbean Reef Sharks and Nurse Sharks which are naturally non aggressive sharks but you never know. So as you can imagine it was a bit of a thrill being in the tank with them. Sorry the pictures suck, underwater disposable cameras aren't too nice but we are still waiting for the professional pictures that the diver took of us. I can cross this off my bucket list now.





This was the funnest thing we did in the Bahamas..trainer for a day with the Dolphins. We got to learn about them, feed them and swim with them for a whole day!! We had a blast, thanks baby for planning this!!


Here is the dolphin pushing me through the water by my foot. I felt like I was flying!!


Here the dolphins are swimming Russell through the pool by him holding onto their dorsal fins. We got to do this a few times and it was so cool. They are strong little buggers.



It was fun to see how much fun Russell had. If it wasn't for our 2 mortgages (stupid responsibility) we would be living in the Bahamas being dolphin trainers!!
