It's Almost Time!!!!

And what do you ask is it almost time for? It is almost time for the cruise. Cam's dad decided to retire with a bang and he is taking all of the kids and spouses, (but none of the grandkids,) on a cruise to Mexico. We are going on a Norwegian cruise ship all the way to Alcapulco, Ixtapa, Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. It is an 8 day cruise with my husband all to myself! Well at least without kids who always want to hug him, hang all over him and sit by him. (My girls and I are always fighting over who gets to sit by Daddy at dinner.)

Now I love my children but I am a big proponent of alone couple time and of adult time. It makes me a better mommy when I have a chance to just be Melissa for a little while. My first long trip out of country was to Europe two years ago for Cam's graduation from college. Last summer we went to the Sierra's backpacking and now we are going cruising. I wouldn't be so lucky as to go so many places but my wonderful in-laws keep providing the wonderful vacations. They baby-sat for the last two so we are looking forward to enjoying this vacation with them. My great sister, Stacey, will be watching the kids for this vacation.

Anyways let the count down begin! We only have 10 more days and we will be warm, relaxed and entertained all at the same time!
