Spring break 2012
My friend Alexis and I were sitting in class one day in January and I said, "hey Lex, let's go on a cruise." We started looking into it during class, not thinking that it would really be possible. I made a slideshow for my husband of all the reasons we should go on a cruise for spring break. It must have been pretty convincing because three days after I said that to Alexis, and made the slideshow, our trip was booked. :) I guess you could call it an impulse buy. We set out on April 6th right after all of our finals to start our long drive (yes, we drove.) from Idaho to Texas. As I look back, it really didn't seem like such a long drive to me, the men always remind me it was because I did not drive at all. I like to think it was because we were having fun. I cannot tell you how many sketchy gas stations we stopped at. That was our word for the trip "Sketch." We had a lot of...well...interesting experiences on the road. I wouldn't trade them for anything! I was so lucky to be able to stop at my sister's house on the way to Galveston and the way back. I had not seen her in over a year, although we could only stop for about an hour each way, It was so fun to see her and love on her little kiddos. They have all grown up so much, and I got to meet my newest neice, Sawyer.
