Disney Cruise

So, our long awaited vacation has finally come...and gone! We left town on my birthday after a great night at Bahama Breeze with friends. On Saturday, we left Cape Canaveral on the Disney Magic for our Western Caribbean Cruise.

Here I am in Key West!

Our planned stops were Key West, Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Castaway Cay. Due to the threat of swine flu we lost of Mexican port and visited Nassau instead. In Key West we explored the city via a walking GPS tour. It was nice to walk at our own pace and were able to stop at the shops and eat lunch. We even walked a total of 2 and a half miles to the southern most point of the US! In Grand Cayman, we were on a bus tour to "Hell" a unique rock formation, and a stop at the turtle farm. We later discovered that the turtle farm harvests the turtles for meat! Yikes, wish we didn't participate in that! But all in all it was a beautiful place to visit!

We celebrated our third anniversary with a special dinner at Palo.

In Nassau we swam with stingrays and laid out on the beach. At Castaway Cay, our favorite stop, we snorkeled and enjoyed paradise! Overall, we did a lot of relaxing, laying out by the beach and sleeping!! As always, check out our photo album!

Now that we are home we are back at work...woo hoo! We are excited however, about Rusty's future career path. He has decided to start back to school in the fall to study Respiratory Therapy. He will do a shadow at the hospital next week just to make sure this is for him. He is really looking forward to this change in careers.

Rusty's birthday is coming up the first of next month! Looking forward to that!
