Our Bahamas Getaway~Part 3....Time to Wrap it Up!

OK, so now we are on Monday, and this is our last full day at Atlantis.  On this day we went out early morning again, then got some beach time, some pool time and a little fun at the water park.

These are some more pics from the resort....

This morning we also had a couples massage appointment at Mandara Spa, and it was so relaxing!
I just wish we would've booked this at the beginning of our trip!  Our skin was a little sensitive due to our sunburn, so it would've been more enjoyable at the start of our weekend.
Either way - it was great and I'd definitely do this again.

After our massage we headed back to the beach.

The water was a bit too rough for my taste so I didn't get in.  Hubby, on the other hand, had a great time swimming!

After some beach time we headed back in to have some lunch by one of the pools

After lunch we jumped in the pool, which was freezing!! Wow...this water was really, really cold!  I made the best of it by swimming around, but eventually we had enough and headed to the water park.

A few more rides to wrap up our awesome weekend!!

Back in our rooms to get ready for dinner.

We had no reservations this night, so we just went out to look for a spot to eat!  We went over to the Harborside to check out the Point Restaurant.  We ordered drinks but that was all we could take - it was too cold to sit there.  They had the area covered, but this place would be better in the warmer months when it is all open.  So, back to Atlantis we went and headed towards the Marketplace where we decided to eat at Carmine's.  Italian food never fails - everything was delicious!

This was our last night at The Atlantis. 

My last post on this getaway will be how we spent our travel day....Yes, I did try to squeeze as much of Atlantis as I could - LOL!!
More pics to come!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
