Our Last Day in the Caribbean

I was so sad to leave the Caribbean.  This trip was definitely one of my very favorites.  I had such a fun time with my family.  It was such an incredible trip.

 I forgot about this picture taken right when we got on the ship.

 Love my Mom and Dad

  I love that my whole family loves to act like idiots and we just laugh at each other.

One of the greatest memories ever.

Cozumel, Mexico

We definitely had the most adventure in Cozumel.  We did this excursion with just Patrick, Kimberly and Elizabeth
 We started out the day clean and uninjured.

Then we got onto the x rails
Which was awesome!!!  Seriously, such a rush!  We just drove through the jungle through the rocky roads.  

 It was a little muddy.

 We jumped off cliffs into bat caves.  It was awesome.

 Elizabeth was freaked out by the bats.  Haha

 Bat caves

 Patrick went crazy in the mud on the way back.

We were so dirty by the end.

 And I got injured.  Brian was driving really crazy and lost control and crashed into a tree.  I hit my leg on the metal bar of the xrail.  It was the most painful thing I have ever felt.  I thought I had broken my leg.  Luckily I just bruised the bone and muscle.  That was a close call.  The picture on the right is how awesome I looked at the end of the day.  This was one of the funnest experiences ever!!!


Another beautiful island.  Although I didn't realize that until I was ziplining through the jungle and had this beautiful view:
This was just breathaking.  We were at the very top ziplining hundreds of feet through the trees.  I felt like I was in heaven.

 The guys

 Our tour guides were hilarious.  I don't know what I enjoyed more out of the bus ride, having creepy people trying to sell me drugs while we stopped at the market or singing "I'll Make Love to You" with one of our tour guides:

Haha!  The best is his face at the end of the video.  He was so mad that Whitney was taking a video of him.  Not sure why but he did say, Don't put it on Youtube!!!


Our first stop was in Haiti.  Wow it was beautiful.

We took the shuttle to the beach where they had tons of inflatable climbing walls, slides and tramps.  We had such a blast!  I was just laughing the entire time.

 Injuries.  Funny story (on the right), I was chasing Alex in the water and he started yelling "Ow, something bit me!  My arm is burning!"  It turns out he had been stung by a jellyfish.

 Seriously so beautiful and relaxing.  Well, besides when we got in the water :)
