Tessa’s 1st Cruise: Day 2 Bahamas

Tessa slept great our first night on board the ship. She only woke up once to nurse. I think she enjoyed sleeping in the big bed with Mommy and Daddy. Today we were in port at the Bahamas. We decided not to get off the ship since we knew Tessa traveled so much the day before. Plus it gave us a chance to explore the ship with her.

Daddy brought us breakfast and then we got our swim suits on to go to the baby splash zone.

Tia Lindsey, Uncle Matt, Papa and Michael joined us at the baby splash zone. Tessa loved it! She was smiling the whole time and loved running though the water with Tia.

After playing for a bit we changed and went to lunch. Tessa loves to wait for the elevator to come. She wasn’t very hungry and wanted to stand on the booth instead.

After lunch she played on the balcony with Tia and Papa. Then we went to the Boardwalk to ride the carousel. After that we went to the sports deck to watch Uncle Matt play in a ping ping tournament (he got 3rd place). Tessa also tried her first Shirley temple soda with Auntie Madi.

Then it was nap time! Tessa napped forever! The longest nap of her life!


We got ready for dinner. Tonight was formal night. Uncle Matt proposed to Tia Lindsey and she said yes!

Tessa was great at dinner probably because we just let her eat french fries. She also tries Jello for the first time. She loved the lime flavor more than orange.

We came back to her first towel animal. She was pretty excited!

After dinner Tessa wasn’t ready for bed since she took such a long nap so we went to explore the ship in another outfit of course (her 4th one of the day). She danced with Papa on our way to the casino and watched the water spray up (she enjoyed this all week)._DSC0306 _DSC0313 _DSC0317 _DSC0319 _DSC0326 _DSC0330 _DSC0334


First stop was the casino. She played a game with Tia Lindsey before we were kindly asked to leave.

Then we went to the boardwalk where Tessa said “horse” when she saw the carousel and played on the pretend boats and car.

After a round of mini golf and getting stuck in a rainstorm, she finally was tired and we went to bed.
