20th Anniversary Cruise!

Kevin surprised me with a cruise for our 20th anniversary!  He arranged for everything, including the care of our children and our pets. It was our first time away from the kids, for more than an evening, since before Anna was born (do you think we were overdue?!!) We flew to Miami to board the ship.We went from Miami to Key West then on to Cozumel, and back to Key West.  We had a fun and relaxing time, even if we didn't have the sunshine we'd been dreaming of.  It was the first cruise either of us had ever been on and we had some pretty yucky weather.  At one point the entire ship was rocking back and forth on very rough seas.  We decided that one of the benefits of that is that if we go on another cruise the weather can probably only be better! :-)  We enjoyed our time away, but were definitely happy to see our kids when we returned (having to readjust to the world of shopping, cooking & washing dishes was a decidedly RUDE awakening after several days of having virtually no responsibilities!)
