Leaving on a jet plane

Well, we are off! Ray and I have left for our first adult only vacation. We are flying to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to then leave on a cruise for three days!! We start planning this trip when Parker was only a few months old. Ray had won the cruise portion through a casino. We couldn't pass it up!! The planning started... Grandma Terry & Poopa were on board to watch Parker. They couldn't turn down alone time with Parker (do I need to remind you how cute he is?).

We choose to travel over Labor Day weekend to maximize a paid holiday. We also have a pretty cool person who had some flight vouchers that they let us use to travel to Florida. Anyone with a new baby and kids in general know they are not cheap, so money is always a factor. All in all this trip was made possible by some pretty wonderful people!!

After having traveled with Parker in June (6 months old) we now have a new appreciation for, well, everything! :) Our perspective has changed and we are so grateful that we have an opportunity to recharge. I am on the plane now just enjoying the time. We will miss Parker (already do) very much. We know that he is in good hands and will have a blast. We are looking forward to a wonderful trip and we will all appreciate each other even more!
