Our Cruise

I thought I'd share the video I made of our cruise, it's about 15 min. long.  We had so much fun, and it was so great to see my family again (we live closer to my husband's family).

We left snow in Iowa, and we drove to St. Louis, stayed the night with some friends of ours, flew out the next day to Orlando and then caught another flight to Fort Lauderdale. I'd do it differently if I had to do it all over again! We did get on the boat, but I didn't know if we would or not- it was pretty close!

We set sail from Miami and went to Cozumel, Mexico; Belize City, Belize; Isla Rotatan (Honduras); Grand Cayman; then back to Miami. Mommy got an expensive massage on the boat- but SO worth every penny! My son enjoyed Camp Carnival every single day, and got his face painted more than once!

The other two kids you see in the video are my nephews- we can just call them A and K. A is 6 months older than my son, C, and K will be 3 in May. All the boys had fun, especially on the pirate ship in the Grand Cayman! Arrggg! So much fun.

Vacations are great, aren't they? It was so nice not to have to worry about dishes, cooking, laundry, cleaning, etc. etc. etc. for one whole week! But it all came back once we got back home!

Are you planning on going on a cruise anytime soon? If so, which company do you cruise with? Where are you planning on going? If you've never been on a cruise, where would you want to go, if you could?
