We made a somewhat last minute decision to go on one more family vacation before the baby is born, since we don’t anticipate we will be traveling much for the next two years.  We decided that going on a cruise would be the best option for our family and found a great deal through Carnival, and so in the beginning of November we headed down to Florida with my mom and my sister Samantha, met up with my grandmother, and headed out on a 7 Day Western Caribbean cruise.  It was a fantastic vacation, and everyone had an amazing time.  You can see a full album of pictures here, but check out some of the highlights:
