Bahamas 2011 Part 2

Bahama 2011

Bahamas Baby!

Chris and I went to the Bahamas on a Winter Getaway with Jen and Zach and Stacie and Mark. My cute sisters.
We went to the Sandals resort which was all inclusive. That is the way to do one of those vacations. All food and drinks included. Booyeah! I got all the Virgin Miami Vices that I could handle.

We did so much fun sutff. We swam and snorkeled. That was the first time that Chris had been any place tropical and I think that he will definitely be talked into something like that again. Chris saw a stingray and we both saw a Baracuda. He saw right over hte top of it. I made sure that I kept my distance.

We were able to do some excursions. The first one that we got to do was called a Bubble Sub. We went on a boat that took us about 20 minutes from shore and then you get to "drive" your own personal sub. It was like a scooter but had no wheels and it went no faster that 1 mph. Also the best part is that you didn't have to get your head wet. Which meant that you didn't have to worry about the water filling your goggles. We did that for 30 minutes and then you got to snorkel over the reefs that you were just by. It was cool but I was still on the look out for a shark. We also got to a Dolphin Encounter. We were able to be in the water with it and we danced and hugged it and I got a few kisses. At the end we did the Dolphin Push. You lay on your stomach and two dolphins come and push your feet and they push you so fast that you come out of the water to you knees. It was so much fun.

Chris loved the Fire Pizzeria that was right on the beach. He has at least one pizza a day but that is what a vacation is for, right? Everyday we were able to lay on the beach chairs and enjoy the sunset and read and take a nap. We went into the city center and we walked thru all the shops and we also walked thru this GIANT tent that had stuff ( read Crap) from the floor to the ceiling. We didn't buy anything there but It was crazy to see all the stuff that could be crammed into such a little space.
At night we played a ping pong and took advantage of the beach view fire pits.

It was so fun to be there with Chris and my sisters. It was so relaxing and I want to go some where tropical again.

New York

Dahlin Trip to New York

Chris and I got to go to NYC with his mom, stepdad Ron, sister Aimee and Bro Bryan. It was tons of fun and we did lots of things. Like walking out butts off, and getting lost on the dumb subway. That was an experience.
The first day we went to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with my cute Aunt Claudette who happened to be visitng my Cousin Shawn in NY at the same time. It was so nice to have a guide since we had no clue what we were doing and were functioning on little sleep ( we took the red-eye to NY.) We also went to a really yummy Italian dinner right on the pier by the Brooklyn Bridge. I had Lobster Ravioli and Chris had a fancy salad with the BIGGEST shrimp that I have ever seen. My cousin showed us around the financial district and we got to see the Bull. The whole time Chris was talking about the Bull I thought he was saying Bowl. So I was really confused. And I got to see TIffany's. I didn't get to go in, everything would have been out of our budget.

The next day it was just Chris and I against the City. His fam went to Upstate NY to see some friends and fam. We went to the Museum of Modern Art ( Chris's Pick) and the Museum of Natural History ( My Pick.) It was trying to get to the History Museum that we got lost trying to switch train lines and I was sweating and swearing and we finally got some help. Chris offended a Police Officer by calling him a Guard. It was good all around.
That night we went to a comedy show for Tracy Jordan in Harlem. You would think that he would be so funny since he is on 30 Rock and he is funny on there, right? WRONG! He was funny for a little bit but I had a hard time understanding what he was saying and what I did understand I thought was pretty gross. I will say that the girls that say behind us thought that he was really really funny. I am pretty sure that Chris and I were a small handful of White People that were in the crowd. It was an real NY experience.

The next day I got to go to Central Park with Chris' mom and sister and we took a carriage ride around it. It was crazy to think of all the movies that had filmed there and I totally thought about the scene in Enchanted and almost started singing" How Do You Know". Chris got to go to the Yankees game with his Brother and Ron and he had some killer seats. Since he had the camera no pics of the park. :( That night it was a girls night for dinner and we went to a fun pub and got some good steaks.

Sunday Chris, Brian and Ron went to a Giants football game while us girls got to go shopping a little bit and then we got to see Mama Mia on Broadway. It was awesome. We had super close seats and could see everything. After the show everyone comes back on stage and you get to sing all the songs with them and dance around. It was such a fun time with Chris' sister and mom.
That night we went to dinner in the Little Italy for Ron's birthday. When we got there we realized that there was a festival that was going on so there was a lot to see and lots of street vendors. All of the restaurants had tents set up so that we could sit outside and see everything but still eat the yummy food. After dinner we had to get some Gelato.

Monday we went shopping and it was the one day that it was raining. It was fun to walk around the city in the rain. Chris and I went to Jimmy Fallon that night. We were able to go behind the band when they were playing but we were too high and you couldn't see us. Still fun to see his show in person.

It was such a fun trip and we were so happy that we could be there and celebrate Ron's birthday.

Our Life Together......So far
