Leon's 30th Birthday Surprise

Leon turned 30 last week and I surprised him with a cruise to the Bahamas. It was so much fun planning. I have never had this big of a secret from him and it was really hard (don't know if I will ever do anything like it again) I was able to keep it from him all the way to Miami. He didn't even know that we were flying. I had arranged it with work for his days off and sent him a clue each day of the week leading up to us leaving. The clues were so random that he could have never guessed it. The icing on the cake was that our best friends from college, Emily and Doug, were able to join us for the fun. When they walked up, Leon could not believe his eyes. It was great memories that we will forever cherish.

This was Royal Carribeans private island, CocoCay. It was amazing!!! I have never seen anything like it before. It felt like something you only see in postcards. Of course Leon being the adventurist, found this amazing spot that no one was on. It was such a peaceful day. I could have stayed there forever.

If you could have only seen the before shot of this, it was very funny! It is harder than it looks to get into a comfortable position when sharing a hammock.

Again leave it up to Leon to find the one spot on the entire ship that no one else has found. It was an amazing spot. We played a round of cards on the back of the ship and watched the sun set. It was beautiful. You can always guarentee great times when playing cards with Emily and Doug.

On the ferry on the way to Atlantis. Another great day!

This resort is unbelievable. It was great to get to go and see it. We spent the day at Atlantis and Leon and I talked all day about how much fun Riley would have had there. Maybe one day we will go back and stay at the resort with her.

What a fun surprise! And happy 30th to Leon!

Did you sail on the Majesty of the Seas? I think you took the same cruise, or at least a very similar one, that my friend Margaret and I took back in March. We stopped in Nassau, Cococay, and Key West. It was beautiful, and we had a great time, too. Look under the April posts on my blog, if you want to see pics from our cruise.
