In 2008, Jason and I went on our first (and only!) cruise. We loved every minute of our time away. Our trip had come at just the right time – Jason had just finished up an 81 hour Masters of Divinity degree, the twins were 3, and Jackson was almost a year old. Jason’s sister, Tara, gave us this cruise trip as a graduation gift. My mom and dad came down and kept all three kids for us making the trip possible. It was a busy time for us and we were happy to get a few days away. The cruise really forced us to slow down and relax. We also enjoyed spending time with Jason’s family. It was awesome! We are always go getters on trips so this getaway was completely different. By far, this cruise was my most relaxing vacation ever. Here’s a picture of us on that cruise in 2008.
