This time next week we'll be on our BabyMoon!!!
You might be asking what a 'babymoon' is?
Well, it's the last big trip for the parents to be, to take by themselves BEFORE they become parents.
I'll be 14 1/2 weeks by the time we leave for our trip and some might think that's a little early but I'll assure you it was all planned this way for a reason.
In fact, there were several things that we took in consideration while planning this trip.
#1. We wanted to go before it got too hot and I get too big to be comfortable.
#2. We wanted a tropical/beachy/relaxing type of trip versus our typical 'active' vacations we're known for.
I, we wanted to make sure that the main recreation wasn't boozing and that there were a lot of things to do.
Granted, I LOVE to booze but right now that ain't happening and the last thing I wanted to happen was for me to sit around and watch Brad get smashed every night along with 90% of the others at a resort we might be staying at.
So, when we made our final decision we found that taking a cruise on this ship was where we would get the best bang for our buck.
We'll be able to enjoy shows, play mini-golf, exercise, hang at the pool, eat until we can't eat until we can't eat anymore.
We'll also be stopping at several ports while on our 6-day cruise.
Our first stop:
This will be my 2nd visit but Brad's first.
We didn't book an excursion for this stop but instead plan on taking in Duval Street, eating key lime pie, conch fritters and I'm sure Brad will have a beer or 2 or 3 at Sloppy Joe's.
After a day at sea our next stop will be:
Neither one of us have been here and we're excited about our snorkeling excursion that we booked.
First time to snorkel for both of us!
Can you believe that??
Our next and last stop will be:
Ochos Rios, Jamaica
This too, will be our first time here and we've booked the Dunn's River Falls excursion which I hear is GREAT!
You know I love to hike, but I'm not 100% sure I'll be climbing to the very top of these falls while pregnant because of the risk of falling.
Overall, we are both very excited!!
This is Brad's first cruise and my first since 1995!
Did you take a 'babymoon'?
If so, where did you go?
