The left side of the page is documenting our arrival into St. Maarten. For this day we booked a beach day excursion where we were dropped off at Orient Bay for a big part of the day. Hands down, St. Maarten has the most beautiful beaches and water that I have had the pleasure of experiencing. I could have easily spent several days there!
Here is the rest of St. Maarten - sandcastles were built and mama got some relaxing time under the umbrella. I was definitely a little camera happy this day!
After leaving St. Maarten, we celebrated Pirates in the Caribbean night. We all wore pirate bandanas at dinner, and the evening menu was printed up like a treasure map. They had a special show with fireworks on deck that evening, but somebody was way too tuckered out to attend. Luckily, his dad went up and captured a few pictures that I added with a 6x12 insert.
Our day in St. Thomas was extra special because it was also Zachary's 5th birthday. I couldn't get enough of that gorgeous water and we had a full day planned.
We took the Sky Tram to the this little restaurant were dad and I sampled the Bushwacker...seriously delicious adult beverage, and took in the beautiful views. Then we watched the bird show which Zachary really enjoyed.
Later in the day we took the Dubloon Sail and snorkeled with huge turtles....we got really close to them and I was so proud of Zach! He paddled out and dunked his head so he could get a good look. The right side is cute pics I captured of him opening his birthday basket from mom, dad and Mickey. We ordered it from a shop in Orlando and they made sure it was on the ship before we took off. The ship delivered it to our state room on Zach's special day...what a treat!
The character breakfast was so much fun! We got to meet Mickey, Goofy, Pluto and Chip n Dale. This and the layout above are two of my favorites.
Well that wraps up Part 2. If you are excited about any of the layouts, I would love for to give them a little Pinterest Love...just click and pin!!! Part 3 will have to wait until Friday, because Thursday, Katie will be here for Third Thursday Scrapbook Stories. Can't wait to see what she has to share. Thank you so much for stopping by!
A little after the fact....I am linking up with Capturing Magical Memories for Memory Keeping Monday....they do digital over there, and the layouts are amazing. Luckily, they are open to all scrappers, so I still feel welcome......
