We did it.

We left the kids and went on a cruise.It was our first time crusin...can you tell?

 We acted classy and fancy and like Sea Captains.
 We went in honor of our friends Kristie and Rob to celebrate there wedding.
 We tried and tried to get a swoon worthy couple picture of us...

 It never happened. Are you sick of looking at us yet?

Then how about his couple? We got lots of swoony pictures of them...best friends FO EVA!!

And this couple, much cuter than the last one.

What a good looking crew huh?
Andy got to walk down the aisle, again.
We had a blast, but at the expense of a little heart ache. There were 2 little buggaboos weighing heavy on our minds. It was 4.5 days and 2.5 days too long to be away. They got to spend a wonderful amount of time with their beloved cousins and Ama, to whom we are forever grateful for. Andy and I got to spend a wonderful amount of time with our friends at their wedding.  But when it was all said and done, we just prefer to spend a wonderful amount of time with our kids.

Remember when vacation meant days of lingering over coffee late into the morning with nothing but the view ahead to think about? Well those days are long gone. Sure, we can linger all we want but our minds are always on these kids and sometimes it seems easier just to stay put right were we are.

Back in the homeland, one crabby patty woke up on the wrong side of the crib this morning and fed his cereal to the dogs and the other one crawled into our bed singing giberish at an unsightly hour and covered make believe boo boo's with every band-aid in the house all before 7 am....glad to be home but maybe I need another vacation?


  1. Looks like you had fun, but I know what you mean about your mind being back with the kiddos...and then reality hitting and thinking you need another vacation! lol. Great pictures.

  2. Oh man! Adi is So big!

    I love that picture of Adi reading and Mary on the computer, both so hard at work.
