5th Anniversary - Part One

Aaron and I took a cruise for our 5th Anniversary. We went with Norwegian Cruise Line (which we loved) and it left out of New Orleans on May 1st. Our really good friends Cori & Jaxon were able to come on the same cruise which was AMAZING. We had a blast.

This is at the port in New Orleans. We had just gotten on the boat.

This is our room. Teeny little thing.

The following are some pictures of the pool and food area on the top deck...

The formal night was the second day of our cruise. We got all dressed up. :)


In Costa Maya, we just walked around this little town, purchased some souveniers, and swam in this amazing pool they had overlooking the ocean. It was pretty sweet.


In Roatan we walked around the little shopping centers right on the pier, and then we took a bus tour with Cori and Jaxon. The driving made me a LITTLE nervous because the roads are tiny and they all go so fast! But our tour guide took us to a little shopping center outside of town, and then we stopped at a lighthouse - where they happen to have a little monkey that we paid three dollars to hold! So worth it. After that, he dropped us off at this beautiful beach. I'm not much of a beach person, but it was really pretty!

Okay - Finally Updating...

I am so bad at this, but now that I stay home - I'm going to try harder. I have a lot of updating to do, so here we go.

I'm going to start with an update of what we are all doing now. I got laid off in April from OneWest Bank (where I was working as a Loan Officer). I was already planning on trying to stay home soon, so when I got laid off, we took that as a sign that the time was now to just stay home with the boys. I love staying home with them, they are so fun and full of energy. We have a really good time together.

Aaron is still working as a Credit Analyst at IBC Bank. He will be done with his "training program" in July of 2012. So we are getting there... He still enjoys it and is looking forward to whatever comes next.

Ben will be turning four years old on Friday, and we will be having a party for him and his friends on Saturday. I'm sure we will have some fun pictures from that - so we will post them after the party. He has requested a Cars 2 party - with a Cars 1 cake. :) He is so funny. Ben finished his Preschool Speech Therapy class in June, and it was AMAZING. He went from not talking at all - to talking very clearly. I can't believe how much good that class did for him, and very much loved his teachers, Miss Stacy & Miss Becky.

Tyson is about 2 1/2 and is just the sweetest kid you will ever meet. He is full of energy and loves nothing more than playing catch with anybody in the room. He is very into sports - including jumping off anything and everything. He is speaking in complete sentences which is very strange to me because Ben wasn't quite there at this age. It's very fun to see them both grow into two VERY different little boys.

There is a small update - more to come!
