Pics From Our Cruise!

Hilarious to think that we went from this one day…(the day before we left)

…to this the next week. Ahhhhhh!

Joe and I on the chartered bus from his workplace. Want a scary experience? Imagine a big bus slip-n-slidin’ on ice for a 4 hour drive on a one lane road with on-coming traffic sliding too. That was NOT something I would like to experience EVER again! (pretty sure I was in constant communication with God during that entire drive). But we were on our way! 02 february 2011 053

 

Our room with a view!!!

Joe and I headed to a nice dinner

Our next excursion: the Isla Pasion by Twister in Cozumel. FREAKING AWESOME.

Our speed boat to the island (It did 360’s and was super fast! I LOVED it!)

02 february 2011 167

 

This island was absolutely amazing and completely secluded. We were the only ones on the island! (our group)

We had fun at the Cozumel port!

We pulled up alongside another boat. They were massive! So crazy. I think this picture is pretty cool.

I had never pinned Joe for liking BINGO- but I’m pretty sure he didn’t miss a game while on board. Huge nerd. Winking smile

02 february 2011 184

 

Last night on our vacay…having a blast with my BFF.

02 february 2011 186

 

I even summoned the courage to sing some karaoke for the first time in my life while Joe tore up the dance floor! It was hilarious.

We had SO much fun. A HUGE thanks to all the peeps at Joe’s work who made this trip possible. And to the army of people it took to watch our kids: Ed, Jess, Dan, Dani, Ashley, Liz, Tempe, and Ladelle….we love you and appreciate you, more than you will ever know.

A woman named Kellie follows your blog. I am guessing you don't know her story. On Feb. 17th she was teaching kindergarten when she got the worst call of her life. Her 4 month old baby died in the care of the babysitter. Kellie is a wonderful woman who needs our help! If you could see her blog and feel inspired, it would be amazing if you could do a post about the auction they are doing on this coming Monday, the 28th. They are trying to raise enough money to (in the future) have another child and be able to stay at home with them full-time. Kellie and James didn't deserve what happened to them. Could you please help out a wonderful family in need by posting the link to the auction on your site? Thank you.

JWill said...

Love all your pics and cruising for that matter! Best way to vacay if you ask me. We're going on a Disney Cruise in November, and I HAVE to have that little black "nice dinner" dress. Where did you get it; you must tell? :)

Rebecca said...
