Years ago, when she first talked about going to vet school, we talked about the celebration afterward...what would we do to celebrate? Well, a party, yes: cake, food, decorations, loving friends and family to share the experience with....but what could we do BIG...REALLY BIG? A CRUISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have three daughters---at first we thought of a European Riverboat cruise....but then the youngest daughter got married, the middle daughter met someone very special and the oldest daughter is in her 3rd trimester of being a surrogate mother for a couple who cannot have children....she can't travel right now.
Well, the riverboat cruise turned into a Caribbean Cruise----we just got back on Sunday night...so I wanted to share some of the photographs.... pictures tell a thousand words....I think you can tell, we had a wonderful time!
