wish you could tell by this picture how much is was raining

I'm not the best at creating long posts. I like to write as little as possible and put tons of pictures, but i'll try and tell you a bit about our cruise. We just got back from a cruise to the Bahamas with many of Austin's High School buddies and their spouses. It was AMAZING! I highly recommend everyone visiting the Bahamas. The first night we spent in Miami... well mostly just a ghetto hotel in Miami. We walked across the street to a gas station to buy some water and I was like oh look there is like a toy sword in the road... as we got closer I was like "WOW" that's not a toy sword. Don't worry it was a machete! In the middle of the road. I LOVE UTAH! haha Then the next morning we got on the ship and set sail for Cococay which was the cruiseline's private Island. We got there and about 5 minutes into it, it starting pouring down rain. Not what we signed up for, but ended up being way fun. We played a little beach volleyball between storms, and then it rained harder than I've ever seen rain come down. They made us evacuate the Island. It was a little scary, but they headed toward Nassau Bahamas early and we were able to spend the night there. Then we woke up and did some shopping at the Straw Market which was very fun, and then we hit the beach! Clearest water I've ever seen. It was so amazing being in such a beautiful place. We had a blast. That is until we got off the ship and sat in the Miami Airport from 8am-5pm. Thanks to Chicago's weather our plane was delayed and we were stuck in the airport all day. Overall it was a GREAT vacation and we hope to be able to travel with our friends a lot more! (sorry that was a very condenced version of the whole trip)
