Vacation Pictures Continued!

Where has the month of May gone?? I can't believe I am just now posting the rest of our vacation pictures, nearly 2 weeks later! We have been so, so busy these past 2 weeks, so I have many more posts to catch up on. 



2nd Port: Freeport, Bahamas








3rd Port: Key West, Florida
Key West was our 3rd port. We met up with our friends from dinner and ended up walking practically 10 miles around the whole dang island. After all the food on the cruise, I guess we needed to burn some cals! First we walked to Ernest Hemingway's house, then we tried to find the beach (ended up taking about 30 min to get there) 
We took a cab back and grabbed some drinks, and I had the best Mango Margarita... it was so delish. Then we headed back to the boat. It was a fun time and since I had already been to Key West it was neat getting to show it to Chad.

The last night!

When we made it home on Sunday, we were so anxious to see Graham. He was napping when we got there, but woke up when he heard us. I was going to go wake him up anyway, because I couldn't wait to see him :) I think the poor baby was confused when we picked him up, he was crying and clinging to me. But after a few  minutes, he was fine. He had a great time and did so great without his Momma and Dada. He would fuss for a while if I left the room, but was back to his normal self within a day. We missed him so much, but to be honest, it wasn't that bad. We checked up on him through email, and knew he was doing great, so that helped. By the last night, I so ready to see him though. Everytime we would see a baby on the cruise, we would give eachother a little look, and we talked about him, but it was great getting alone time. I cried when my parents picked him up the day we left, but didn't really cry the whole trip! He stayed at our house with our parents, so I'm sure being in his own room, having his own toys and routine helped a ton. A BIG thank you to our parents for watching our baby for us. We are so thankful to have such wonderful, loving, and generous parents, who love Graham as much as we do!!!
