Back to life…back to reality


Yesterday was our last day on the ship.
We got to the Fort Lauterdale airport around 10:30 am and our flight was at 2:35pm. Mom picked us up in Columbus and we were finally home around 7:30 pm last night. We got everything carried in, and I started some laundry, but we still have a lot of stuff to put away.

I am in

the process of updating the blog with all the pictures from the trip. After reading them all, I’m sure you will literally feel like you were on the cruise with us. It may take me a day or two, so if you see posts with pictures and no words or words and no pictures, just check back later.

I will put an updated post here, when they are all ready.

You can always use the “older blog entries” link at the bottom of the page to read back through the entries or I am including an index here in case you are looking for something specific.
