Bahamas Part 1

After realizing I have a bajillion pictures I decided to break our trip up, not sure how many parts I will end up with, but that's the fun in blogging. There can be as many parts as I decide :)

Day 1: We took a red-eye flight on Thursday night and got into the Bahamas at noon on Friday. We stayed at the Cove Tower at the Atlantis Resort. We checked out the room, and then threw on our bathing suits to catch a little sun.

The water is so gorgeous, the sand is so soft and powdery, I think kept thinking "why isn't California in the Bahamas?"

One of the highlights of day 1 was running into Magic Johnson in the concierge lounge, I saw him walk in and stared and told Chad "OMG look who that is" right as he walked by, he stopped briefly and said hello to all of us.

Day 2: New Year's Eve

There is so much to do at the Atlantis, 11 pools, different beaches, a water park, snorkeling, etc. We spent the day doing a little of each of those activities.

To ring in the new year we went to a dinner/show/dancing party. It was a blast, I don't get my husband out on the dance floor very often so it was a treat to dance all night with him. Right before midnight we went outside and watched the most incredible firework show. The whole show looked like a "grand finale" that I have seen and then the grand finale was something else.

I'll leave you with a little video that Chad made for the guys. This song was played at the pool everyday and became the joke of the trip.

More pics to come
