How is it possibly May 19th already? Nine days ago I was boarding a flight from Charlotte to Atlanta and preparing to set sail on a week-long Caribbean vacation. Now I find myself sitting at the Orlando Airport with six hours to kill before I fly back to Charlotte. Coming home, I'd like to think I'm a slightly different person than when I left. Nicely tanned, a few pounds heavier (so . . . much . . . food), well rested, and filled with pictures and memories of a fantastic vacation with my family! On my camera alone I have 150+ pictures, not to mention the hundreds captured by Mom and Erin. I'll share an assortment of them over several posts, but for today I'll leave you with a brief synopsis and a few pics to keep you coming back for more.

The abundance of food requires its own lengthy post. Suffice it to say, there were certainly no food shortages on the Carnival Dream. Overall all, I was quite impressed with the options and certainly felt as though I left every meal feeling fuller than the last.
Aside from soaking up the sun and relaxing on the ship's deck, we had a couple great excursions. Here we all are in front of the Mayan ruins at Lamanai.
Our family Western Caribbean Cruise Vacation 2012 was a huge success! I'll be back soon with the details.
