So, I am finally getting around to posting about the FUN cruise that Justin and I took at the end of last month. We got a great deal on a seven night (Western Caribbean) cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas and were blessed to go with my cousin Misty and her husband Jonathan. We got to swim with stingrays, love on some sweet sea turtles, go snorkeling, climb a beautiful waterfall, tube down a river, see a sea lion show, relax on the beach, and enjoy spending lots of quality time together. It was a BLAST!!! The boys stayed home (my parents graciously stayed with them 🙂 ) and worked on schoolwork and went to their usual activities. It’s nice now that they are older and more independent!
Here’s a slideshow (we only took pictures using our cell phones, so they’re not the best quality):
I am sooooo thankful that Justin and I were able to spend this one-on-one time together. We have always taught our kids that our marriage relationship comes first because one day they are going to grow up and have their own lives (and we’ll still be married 🙂 ). We have had to work on this and it was much harder when they were little and more needy, but I think it creates a feeling of security to know that your parents are committed to each other and are “in it for the long haul.” We actually came home on our 18th anniversary. It’s hard to believe that it’s been that long already! The past 18 years have been the best years of my life and I’m blessed to be married to my best friend – love you Justin!!!
I can’t end this post without a quick reminder that today is the LAST day to register online for the 2015 HEAV convention!
Only 17 days away!!! WOO, HOO!!!!
