After the wedding, T and I took off and went to Napa for 3 days followed by a day in San Francisco.  This was my first trip to Napa and I loved it!  We went on a few wine tours, ate at great restaurants, and stayed in a lovely little bed and breakfast!  Can't wait to go back again, it is a great little getaway!

Now the second honeymoon was the "Family Honeymoon" (if there is such a thing).  We took the five youngest kids on a cruise to Mexico.  The kids love cruises and we didn't have to deal with flying, so it just made sense!  We were going to go to Hawaii, but the airline tickets would have cost more than the cruise!  

We all had a blast and by the end of the trip Jenna, TJ, Kami, and Charlie had learned such great manners about elegant dining, a lady actually came up to our table and complemented us on how well behaved our children were.  :)  The kids were beaming because they were working so hard at it!  

We spent two days in Cabo, one day in Puerto Vallarta, and the rest of the days at sea.  On the last Saturday T and I had "date night" and ate at the steakhouse, while the four oldest had dinner on their own in the elegant dining room.  They were so cute.  We met them in time for dessert and the waiters said they were wonderful!  Claire Marie enjoyed camp carnival most of the time and didn't want to leave.  

Here are some photos from the cruise!

Don't make me laugh, you know I want to be mad right now...

Horseback riding excursion!

TJ's horse was wild and kept kicking the horse behind him!

My horse was a sweetie :)

Kami loved hers!

Jenna asked for soy sauce one night for rice, and they brought it to her every single night after that!  LOL

Jenna chickened out of the horse back riding, so they took her on an ATV ride.

This was an awesome experience
