I haven't really written much about our cruise we took. I plan on doing a more thorough post, but I wanted to post some of the "portraits" we got from our 2 weeks on the ship. I'm not a big fan of the "formal" photography... and so I doubt I'll frame these, but it's so nice to have them as memories. Amos is just so FREAKISHLY adorable in his little bow tie, how can one not die at the pure sight of it? OH MY GOSH. Does he have to grow up? [Though I am certain, he will continue to be as adorable in a little bow tie for years to come.]
I didn't take many pictures while on vacation. I actually never took out my SLR once, and barely made a dent in my iphone album. I really let myself relax. I didn't have to cook or clean, and I didn't let myself have the pressure of capturing every single moment - a particular plague that comes upon us moms.
These were some that I decided to bring home, and there are a couple from mine and Ricky's phone. It was such a peaceful, relaxing time. It really was a gift from God to our little family.
MASSIVE THANKS to my dad-in-law, Rich, for dropping FAT CASH to pay for each of our airfare and cruise tickets as a retirement celebration. He even had to pay for Amos to be on the boat. What a blessing! I am so thankful for family that values time spent and memories made.
