A little more sequential....

Alright, so I want to just jump right into the wedding pictures, but I decided to keep it all in order, so be bored with some OTHER Jamaica pics for a bit.
The first day we got on a plane at 10pm, few through the night til about 5am (3 hour time difference) to North Carolina, where we had to entertain ourselves for a few hours then we got on a plane to Jamaica...OVER THE OCEAN! Needless to say, I didn't sleep for over 48 hours straight! I hate flying!!!! Then we got to Jamaica at about 11am (their time)...we had to take the bus for a couple of hours to other resorts to drop people off, then they took a good 45 minutes or so to get all of our bags and stuff and check in. So around noon, we got some food and hit the beach. Still no pics...too worn out. Then we went back to the room, showered and toured the resort. There were huge chess games all over, Jase learned chess. Big mistake! He wanted to play all the time. Me...not a chess fan...not sice 5th grade when I was the chess champ. Yea, that's right, chess champ. But I did however, let him get a picture with his new found game.... Then the sweet little guy planned a spa treatment for us. I really wanted to do one, then we saw the prices online before we left, and I changed my mind, but he booked us one. I got a seaweed wrap and he got a coffee wrap. The best coffee in the world is supposably grown in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica. ANyway, it was AMAZING! I do think however that the lucky Jamaican ladies got a sneak peak for J's junk. See the shower in the back corner? We were in "disposable"underwear. Mine was a tiny g string, and I wrapped my girls with a small hand towel, and he wore disposable boxers, but we had to take them off when we showered in that tiny shower, WHILE THEY WERE IN OUR ROOM. Anyway, It was great. I was peeling for a day, which was weird since we hadn't even hit the sun yet. Oh, and the pic is us, layer of coffee/seaweed/saran wrap, foil, and about 3 layers of towels. It was snuggly. They let us chill for about 30 minutes where I heard snoring to my left. Then they came in and massaged our scalps, which felt good, but made me look like I had super bad bedhead....
...so we heaeded to the beach to swim for a dizzy. It was perfect weather. Only 2 days after the Hurricane Fay storms brushed through. This is amazon woman and her little guy. I was soo excited to finally weigh less than him for a vacation, but from the looks of this picture, I could eat him up!
Then that afternoon was SALSA lessons! I've always wanted to take Latin dance lessons. It was great! Our teacher was Jamacain, and hot and could totally shake it in her 4" skirt and 4" stilletos. I'm sure Jase enjoyed the lessons as well. Oh, and not only did we learn to salsa like nobody's business....no one else came, so it was private lessons. She told us how to pose for the pic....we really didn't do anything this fancy.
This is the beautiful view from our room. It faced north, so we had amazing sunrise and sunset views.
Day 1....Complete
