Cruisin’ – 1/23/14 – 2/1/14

Happy Cruisers!

Happy Cruisers!

We headed north from the Keys and picked my mom up at the Ft. Lauderdale airport. It had been since Thanksgiving so it was so great to see her! She had wanted to come visit us somewhere in Florida and somehow we landed on a cruise. We stayed in a hotel for the first night, then headed to Port Everglades in the morning to board Ruby Princess for our 9-day Caribbean Cruise. It was the perfect chance for her to relax and get some much-needed vitamin D and for us to spend time together.

We did a whole lot of nothing! The itinerary only had 3 ports (Cozumel, Grand Turk and Princess Cays) so we had ample days at sea, which we liked. A lot of pool time! A few highlights were Bingo (mom won!), nightly wine before dinner, hanging out at Jack’s Shack in Grand Turk, Tequila tasting in Cozumel, getting our steps in everyday, talking up the Seahawks every chance we got and our final lunch on the beach in Ft. Lauderdale before dropping mom back off at the airport.

Very hard to say goodbye after such a wonderful time together, but it really was a great vacation. Mike & I headed back down to Key Largo to retrieve the MoHo and get set-up and ready for S U P E R B O W L!!!!! We did come back to find something wrong with our fridge. All the food had to be dumped and we are using coolers until we can get a repairman out on Monday. Maybe I am loosening up, because really this isn’t even fazing me….progress!
