Long Overdue Bahamas Pics!

Chillin after a "rough" day.... ;)
Shopping, we've bought some prints from Nassau every time we've gone. Love them!
They have an AWESOME aquarium!
The main hotel at Atlantis. The middle bridge part is actually a room that rents for $25,000 a night.
The "lagoon" beach
This is actually water slides...SO scary! There's a huge drop right off the bat, then you twist and turn through the dark! So fun though! There's 3 different slides in this building.

These are slides that time you so you can "race" someone.

Kids area

Stella loved the kids pool, WAY better then Wild Adventures! :)


The grounds are HUGE! I lost count of how many pools there are and then there are 2 beach areas.


This is walking around "The Dig". It's a underground tour below the hotel of the "Lost City of Atlantis".
Ok, so I have been putting off updating because I knew there were so many pictures to upload. We've been home for 2 weeks now and I finally am sitting down to update the blog. All my updates will probably be short...
Vacation was great! Atlantis was SO beautiful. On the cruises we'd been on that stopped in Nassau we had always gone and walked around the grounds of Atlantis. All we could see though was the hotel, shops and casino because it is almost $200. a person for a day pass for the amenities. There are beaches, pools, aquariums, waterslides, undergrounds tours etc. SO much but the ship only stops from like 9-4ish so it's not worth it to spend the $$. I am SO glad we finally got to see it ALL! It is AWESOME! It's like it's own city. I think there's at least 4 or 5 different hotels within the same "hotel". I lost count of the pools. The water slides are like no park I have ever been to before. Not your typical water slides. It is supposed to be one of the best water parks and I think it lives up to it. It's almost like Disneyland, there's all these different parks with pools and slides. Mario and Aubrey snorkeled at the "Lagoon" beach. We shopped, and W-A-L-K-E-D! Boy is it spread out, and LOTS of stairs. SO much fun with a stroller. Ummm, ya right. ;) Anyways, great trip.
I was sick the last day, only lasted a day but then it came back last weekend and I've been down for the count ever since. Ugh. Mario now has it and it's Aubreys 13th birthday tomorrow. Happy 13th Aubrey! I don't like to post pics of other people unless I have their permission and I don't really want to corner everyone that drops their kids off at her "Bowling" party so I probably won't have many pics from that but I'll at least upload some of the girls!!! Ok, now...on to the next post.
