The Best Vacation Ever...

For those of you who didn't know, we went on a 5 night cruise to Grand Cayman and Mexico last week. We just got back yesterday and have been catching up with voicemails and emails but I just had to edit some of the images from our vacation to share with everyone. I'll spare you a lot of writing on this one because I'm about to drop so many images, you're eyes are going to burn off. Seriously though, we had such an amazing time last week and are now officially big time cruising fans so if anyone wants to go on one with us, just let us know!

PS: about half of these images were taken with our Canon G10 point and shoot and half with our Canon 5D. That's how hard the G10 rocks. I bet you can't even tell which are which. ;)

Hello Enchantment of the Seas! It's lovely to meet you.

Goodbye Ft. Lauderdale!

Sunset over Miami (I hope Edgar likes this one!)

Deck 9. Our personal favorite:

Anyone know what animal this was supposed to be?

Day 3: Welcome to Grand Cayman

Getting on our catamaran

If anyone wants to get me one of these for Christmas, I wouldn't be opposed...

Are you kidding me?

The night he proposed. I like to think these are his "I've got something planned" eyes...

Ceiling Self Portrait

Night shoot....and....GO

Day 4: Hello Mexico!

Apparently this phenomenon is called the 22 degree halo. Really wikepedia? 22? Perfection!

On our way to our excursion...

Nate can't dive because of a collapsed lung when he was younger so I took him on a submarine to see the reef...

We got down to 112 feet below the surface!

Lunch time in Cozumel...

Stop taking pictures of me!

Our cruise friends from Indiana. No one is safe from our impromtu photo shoots!

Aren't they just lovely?

Goodbye Enchantment. We miss you already...

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our vacation! We are happy to be back home but a little sad that we have to cook and clean for ourselves now. We got spoiled last week with around the clock free food and twice a day maid service. Seriously people, who wants to go on another cruise? I'm thinking Jamaica... Hawaii... Alaska...?

Proposal pictures coming Monday. ;)
