Spooktacular Halloween

We have had fun celebrating Halloween already this year! Here are a few pics of our adventures so far!
 The little man had fun dressing up in his Halloween costume for Library story time! Mooooo!

Key West and Cozumel Photos

 The famous Lincoln Road in South Beach. Where we spent the day and ate lunch at the Five Napkin Burger, which was amazing!

Little Man had a blast swimming at the Alexander Hotel! He loved swimming to Mom, Dad, Josh and me! He loves jumping in too! I have definitely learned from C + C to put your child in swimming lessons as soon as possible.

 The Coast Guard welcomed us into the Key West port. I loved watching the Coast Guard drive us in and out of the ports that we stopped at with our ship. It was interesting to see the guy at the front of the boat manning the gun.

In Key West we rode the Conch Tour Train to the shops down town and treated ourselves coconut water on the street.

The little guy spent a couple nights with us as his parents went out for some adult time. Josh and I put him down for bed and enjoyed the evenings on the private balcony attached to the room. It was so beautiful to see the moon reflecting upon the calm ocean water. With no land in sight it really made me appreciate all the wonders God created.
We stopped in Cozumel to pose at Cuban Cigar shop with Castro and on the street to pose with a soldier.

It wouldn't be Mexico if we didn't wear sombreros! We had fun trying on our hats!

 My favorite place that we went in Cozumel was Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville! We had tons of fun and the young man had a yummy milk shake!

Our October Getaway

Well to start, this getaway really had two parts mixed together. One part work and the other part was Josh and I having a vacation together. This part of the blog will be about  our alone time. To begin, we left for Miami where we stayed at the very luxurious Hotel Alexander on Miami Beach. While it did rain there for a couple days, every morning we woke up to sunshine and we had the ocean and pool to ourselves for at least an hour before other guests joined us. The ocean was crazy on this trip to Florida, the waves were huge and unless you are surfing there wasn't much you could do in the water. We preferred the calm pool and hot tub. After enjoying water time we retreated to our wonderful suite. We shared a four bedroom hotel room with my employers. It was fully furnished three bathrooms, a living room, kitchen, bar, and balcony. It was an amazing room. We also made time to go to South Beach and shop and eat of course!

After a couple days in Miami we boarded the Carnival Imagination Cruise, where we had our own room on the empress level. The ship was amazing. We had plenty of alone time during our five days on the ship, we swam every morning, gambled at the casino, went to the comedy club, listened to live music, and watched a live version of the newly wed game. It was so much fun. We also had fun at both locations that our ship docked, Key West, and Cozumel. We did lots of sight seeing, shopping, and bar hopping. My all time favorite drink was a Margarita at Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville in Cozumel. We had a wonderful time, and as much as I loved spending stress free time with my husband, I love our life at home even more.

The other part of the trip was spent with the family that I have been working for, for over a year now. I have some fun photos of all of us, and the little guy that I will post later. We spent a lot of time with their family and enjoyed their company too. And this vacation the little guy did not poop on Josh's pillow!
