Good Morning! It's a beautiful day here in Maryland and I thought it would be a good day to do a little post about our honeymoon since we have a little catching up to do. Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

For our honeymoon, we chose to take a cruise on Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas to explore a little of the Western Caribbean. The trip lasted seven nights and we visited Labadee, Haiti, Georgetown, Grand Cayman, Falmouth, Jamaica, and Cozumel, Mexico. The Freedom is a HUGE ship and has so much to do, we couldn't get all of it in on one trip! Mike even tried the Flow Rider and did really well at it! After a little practice he was able to stay up for almost 20 seconds. Did I mention we only went to the Flow Rider twice and he was able to do this? Pretty awesome! I was a little too scared to try it myself but maybe next time.

We had the time of our lives meeting new people, relaxing on the sandy white beaches, enjoying the nightlife and shows on the ship, and doing a few excursions. We got to experience the world's longest zipline over water in Haiti which was super awesome! We had also planned an excursion in Mexico to take an ATV tour through the jungle to see some Mayan ruins, but unfortunately, the day before we got there, some heavy rains came through and flooded the jungle area where the tour was held so they had to cancel the excursion. We decided to take a beach break that included open bar and lunch. It ended up being a blast! We took more than 500 photos, but I promise, I won't share ALL of them. It was hard to narrow it down but here are a few of our favorites!

Our amazing waiter, Delroy! We hope to see him again!

We enjoyed every minute and can't wait to go on our next cruise vacation! Here is a video of Mike on the Flow Rider and then going down the zip line. I wish we would have taken a few more but it's still neat to have at least these two little clips to remember the trip! Also, sorry for my strange commentary on the first video - I was talking to a couple of our friends we had met on the ship. Enjoy!
