Carribean Cruise:

It has been a while since we have been back but I have been busy getting back into the swing of things but I wanted to post about our cruise. We had such a good time, I missed my kids like crazy but it was so nice getting to spend some time with just us. It was nice to be just a couple again and not mom and dad for a few days. I did pretty good most of the time without the kids (only a few minor melt downs) but was thrilled to see them when we got home. Our cruise went to Grand Caymen, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. I LOVED all our stops. In Grand Caymen we just had a beach day, it was relaxing and a lot of fun. In Roatan we went to a place called Gumbilimba Park where we got to play with and hold Monkey's. The monkey's loved Cade and couldn't get enough of him. They were so dang cute! In Belize we did a very adventurous excursion, we hiked through the jungle to these caves that were amazing and then we went through these cave (actually crawling at times) and eventually made it through 2 zip lines, 2 rope bridges, and a minor repel. It was a blast, and a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will never forget. In Cozumel we went on a boat ride to a private Island that was absolutely amazing. I got a massage on the beach, Cade went in the Kayaks, I read my book in a hammok hanging from a tree and took a little nap. This Island was tiny and had maybe 60 people on it. It was heaven on earth, and the water was amazing. Here are some pics:
This was the sunrise on our last morning on the boat, isn't it georgeous?

This was our tour guides that took us to the private Island, they were awesome!


Our fun friends Tara and Chris!

Is this not Beautiful? It was seriously scenery from a movie.



This was just a cool little Island we passed, we loved it so we had to have a picture.

I ordered this cake to surprise Cade on our anniversary (I'm kind of a cheese ball)

We loved these little monkeys...

The monkeys liked Cade because he is just as hairy as the monkeys.
