Flash Back Friday - Graduation Cruise

I'm linking up with Emily today for Flasback Friday!

I graduated from college in May of 2007.  For my graduation present, my sister took the 4 of us (her, Gino, me and Matt) on a cruise to celebrate (um - wasn't that an awesome present?!)!

Our cruise left from Miami and was either 4 or 5 days long.  We went to Key West, Cozumel, and Belize.  This is the trip where Laura discovered that she doesn't really love cruising (she gets BAD motion sickness.  Not a good combo.).  Matt and I had been before (our honeymoon) and we LOVE it!  Here is how our trip went:
Laura snoozing on the way down there - haha.

Stopping to eat at a Hard Rock Cafe

View of the beach from our hotel room.  I LOVED how high up we were!

Coming back from dinner.  This was our hotel.

Room service dessert!

Room service breakfast!

Ready to go get on the boat!

On the ship - doing our muster drill!

Ready for vacation!

At Key West

There were chickens (and chicks!) everywhere on Key West!

We went to the butterfly garden.

In addition to chickens, there were also iguanas everywhere!

At the "aquarium" on Key West.  Can I be this skinny again, please??

Waiting to go to dinner on the ship.

The senior picture pose.

We didn't have any pictures from Cozumel - but we swam with dolphins while we were there.  Literally one of the best things of my life!

Waiting to go on our "beach break" in Belize.

This is literally what we did all day on our day at Belize.  

Our view

Can you see Cuba?

Our dinner table.  The other couple was SO nice.

Of course we had to do the cheesy cruise pictures.  :)

Honestly, when I think back on this trip, it is one of my FAVORITES.  We had so much fun, and we LOVED spending so much time with Laura and Gino.  We are in the process of planning a cruise for next summer, but this time we're going to go on a Disney cruise and take LL and Ben (Cooper will still be too little).  I'm really looking forward to another trip with them!
