Our first stop on the cruise was St. Maarten. Jared and I have visited the island a couple of other times and have always loved it. This time we ventured to Anguila to swim with the dolphins. Joelle looks at our picture books from previous vacations and always oohhhss and aaahhhhss over our dolphin pictures. So, we knew swimming with the dolphins was a must!
This kid LOVES everything about sand. She covers herself from head to toe and giggles away!
And, we definitely needed a dolphin swimsuit for the occasion!
Thankfully it was a beautiful day with clear waters!
Joelle was a little scared when we first started, but she quickly fell in love!
Watching Joelle try to kiss our dolphin was quite hysterical!
We got a few laughs :)
Dancin' with a dolphin!
Then it was Papa's turn...
I LOVE this picture of these two! This is how they are all the time!
And my turn...
Then it was time for our dolphin ride! We were so proud of Joelle... there were grown adults who were too terrified to take their turn!
A little congratulatory chat!
This was Joelle's favorite part... the two dolphins pushing her feet!
We ended that day with a wonderful evening on the cruise! And, we got to spend it with this cutie patootie!
Oh, and you can't forget about the towel animals... Joelle's favorite way to end her night!
