My 1st cruise





This weekend my whole family went on a cruise together for my parents 50th Wedding anniversary. It was 3 day trip to Ensenada. We brought Harper with us(still breastfeeding) but left Max and Ollie at home. It was alot of fun. We ate a ton, watched shows, karaoked and the last night went dancing at a nightclub. I still got my dance moves. I guess if someone announces "I still got my dance moves" they probably don't. But whatever I had fun. The best part was the actual party for my parents. My Dad told how he met my Mom. And we all told memories of them. I had a moment of clarity listening to everyone and looking back over my parents life together. 
1. You really shouldn't sweat the small stuff. Even some of the big stuff. It all seemed obsolete. Most of the crappy stuff was either forgotten or funny.
2. Family IS the most important thing. 
3. Life is short, enjoy the phase your in.
4. I really don't like buffets. Alot of food does not mean better food. Stick with restaurants.
 All in all it was a fun weekend. But I never quite got used to the rocking of the boat.

I too am not a fan of the buffet. I feel like an animal being fed at a trough.

That's right my eyes are closed! It was a blast and I have to say I still can feel the rocking of the boat.

It looks like you guys had a blast. I love all that you "got" from listening to your parents. Life is so much better when we slow down & enjoy the good parts of life. No more "sweating", or at least cutting back on it : ) Glad you guys had fun. The pictures are great!

Looks like so much fun! I have so many questions but I am too tired to call right now. Yes, they are probably a little bit of nancy questions but you will just have to bear with them!

Yeah Im not big on the buffets either, quality over quantity is the key.
