After our wedding we headed to one of the hotels near the airport since we had a 6(ish)am flight the next morning to Miami. We arrived in Miami mid morning and caught a taxi to the Cathedral for mass. What a great way to start our life together as a married couple.
On the second night of the cruise we ate at the Japanese restaurant (the kind where they cook in front of you) for Will's birthday. At the end of dinner they even brought out a little birthday cake for him (I wish I could take credit for requesting this, but I'm pretty sure his dad is the one who ordered the cake). On our first shore excursion we went snorkeling and kayaking. Snorkeling was not nearly as fun as we had anticipated because we were put with a group and they kept moving us from one place to another and we never really felt like we got to see anything because we were constantly being moved. But the kayaking was fun and we enjoyed the lunch they served us along with the live music they had for our entertainment.

The next day we chose to take a tour around town and then spend some time shopping around. We both really enjoyed this - it was really relaxing and nice being able to just be with one another. This is also where we found a beautiful crucifix to hang in our new home.

On our third day off the ship we were able to check out some Mayan ruins. I was really excited to get to see the ruins, and it made the long bus ride to and from the ruins worth it :)

When we got back we had a lovely dinner at the Chinese restaurant aboard the ship.
Thanks Hallie for giving me a reason to reminisce about our honeymoon!
