We Went Cruisin'

Wednesday, May 09, 2012
and we had a blast! We were so, so busy the entire time...relaxing!!!!

We went for 4 nights & made one stop in Cozumel. I got a nice shade of brown...with a little red, too! Hey, I did use sunscreen!! We took a catamaran in Cozumel to an island where we swam, relaxed in the sun, played games, had open bar & buffet, shops, etc. It was exactly what we needed for our little getaway!

Here are a few pics of our time away - there are more on my flickr set. I honestly didn't take that many pictures this trip. All the relaxing just took it out of my I guess! Ha ha!

We laid around on the beach - Michael acted silly - enjoyed the breathtaking views...

And we sipped cold drinks with little umbrellas...there was a drink mixing contest and I have to say the winner was amazing! I don't remember what all was in it, but it had melon and it was truly the most refreshing drink I've ever had. It's the bright one below!

Like I said, it was just what we needed - relaxation!!!

It was very hard to be away from the kids for 4 nights (that's why we chose this short trip)...once we were actually gone it wasn't too bad, but the last night was really hard. I was very anxious to get off the ship the next day. They came to pick us up with my parents & since they got there before we debarked, they parked across from the ship and we were able to wave at the from the deck - that was the longest hour ever! My babies were right there & I couldn't get down to them. They thought it was pretty cool to see the ship, though!

I woke up with a cold the morning we pulled in to dock & I haven't been able to shake it. I finally went to the doc today for something stronger - I'll pick it up on my way home & hopefully it'll knock it out quickly! 

We are ready to go back now, though - already talking about a Disney Cruise for next year with the kids!
