Thanks to David and Camille, we had a great opportunity to go with Mike's parents and siblings on a cruise. We had so much fun that we want to go on another one. I was scared that I was going to get sick because I get car sick, but I am happy to report that no one got sick at all. We flew into LAX on Monday and went to the ship that was docked in Long Beach. As we were getting off the plane David had a call from Matt that he had missed his flight. We were all a little scared that he wasn't going to make it. He luckily got on a new flight and was able to get a taxi to bring him to the port in time. Once everyone was on the boat we all hung out and waited for the boat to be on its way. We had a late dinner time of 8:15 which was 10:15 Texas time. The food was worth staying up and eating. After dinner we just hung out. Here are some picture of us on the first night on the ship.

Queen Mary it was docked next to our ship. View of Long Beach. Our first towel animal(Dog) :)

Day Two we were in Catalina Island. We had to take a little boat to the island. Once on the island we walked around and looked at the little shops and Mike, Matt and I put our feet in the water but it was pretty cold so we decided going back on the boat and getting in the hot tub would be a better idea. Once we were done walking around we got back on a boat that took us back to the ship. We just hung out and walked around to see what the boat had to offer. We went to dinner and then hung out some more.

The sign says Warning the bacteria level may cause illness. No Swimming

Day three was spent in Ensenada Mexico. Went and saw a big blow hole and then spent some time walking around the shops and doing some more hanging out.

We got back from breakfast to find the person that cleaned our room put my sun glasses on our elephant.

In the water are two ship wrecks.

Our last towel animal. Cute little bunny.

Here is all of our animals.
We made sure we didn't mess them up

Hope we can go on another cruise again soon. I think that if you haven't ever gone on a cruise it is a must. Loved It!
