Honeymoon: Day 4

The last day of our offical honeymoon was spent at sea. We pretty much just laid out and got fried all day long. It was so nice to just have sunny skies and nothing to do! We ate alot that day and just enjoyed our last day on the boat. We loved our cruise: lounging, eating and not having a worry in the world! We are so thankful for the chance we had to go!

Honeymoon: Day 3

The third day was spent in Nassau. We really liked Nassau and loved going to the shopping district right by the port. We found a beautiful beach scene picture from a creepy bahamian man.. but it is perfect for our house. We also took a glass bottom boat tour of the island and found out alot of cool things about Nassau. We also saw a sting ray, a bunch of fish and some cool coral. After the boat tour we went back to the boat, but it rained most of the afternoon. We took the opportunity to nap and visit the hot tubs on the boat. It really was a fun day!

Honeymoon: Day 2

In all of the snorkeling gear

Where we went snorkeling... the water was soooo clear!!
Our view at dinner... gorgeous!

Day 2 was a marvelous day in Freeport. Derek and I had the chance to go snorkeling off the island and see some pretty cool fish. We loved being in the sun all day and just being together. We also enjoyed the afternoon at the pool and tried to win TV theme song trivia. We failed horribly, but only because the shows were from the seventies. We decided not to do the formal dinner and instead ate on the back of the boat looking out at the ocean. It was a perfect day!

Honeymoon: The First 24 Hours

Our wedding was amazing! The whole day was beautiful and it was so fun to have our families with us! We had a chance to spend our first night as newlyweds at a hotel on the beach in Satellite Beach. We had a gorgeous view and could hear the ocean from our room. We had breakfast in bed the next morning and then went to the blessing and naming of Chloe Sophia and Gwen Ruth, our nieces. The blessings were beautiful and Derek had the chance to participate in the blessing, which made it all worth it! Then we went to my parents house and visited with my grandparents who came to the wedding. Sarah and Ryan took us to the boat, and we unpacked and got ready for dinner! The food was amazing!!! We met some fun couples on the boat and just enjoyed being together! When we came back from dinner, our sheets were turned down and a cute towel animal awaited us. It was such a fun first day and we loved being able to be together!!
