The Moores were kind enough to keep our kids for three days so we could go on a cruise. We have always wanted to do this and we decided that since we will have our 10th anniversary this year we should go for it. Since we wanted to do plenty of other things with the kids on our trip, we decided to just do a short one over the weekend. The cruise left from Long Beach Friday afternoon.
On Saturday we were docked in Ensenada, Mexico. It was such a beautiful day. We went on a horseback ride in the foothills above Ensenada in the morning. Everything was green and there were wildflowers all along the trail. We got to see some amazing views of the city and the ocean.
We got back to town then walked around for a couple hours shopping and enjoying the day. We got some fun souvenirs for the kids.
Sunday was our day at sea. We played several games on the ship because we really wanted one of these trophies. After several failures, we found a sports trivia contest. It was an easy win.
The cruise was so much fun! We will definitely do it again someday. Of course the best part was the great food...at any time of the day. Each night at dinner we would order 3 or 4 different desserts to share between us. Someone gave us the idea to weigh ourselves at the beginning and end of the cruise...Brady gained 5 lbs and Debbie gained 4.5!
Monday morning we started our journey home...stayed in St George halfway and got home Tuesday evening.
In all, we drove 2590 miles in 12 days. It was a blast and we would do it all again right now if we could!
