Leaving Cabo at sunset

Rascal Flatts pirate haha j/k this is the owner of the pirate ship... does he not look just like the guy from Rascal Flatts?!? just happened to get a pic that looks like he's singing. His wife told us he got harrassed at a Rascal Flatts concert one time.. fans thought he was the guy and asked for his autograph and when he said he wasn't him they got really angry and said he was a jerk haha so funny

Austin's parents took the two of us plus about 26 other people on a cruise in December for Christmas. I don't know about you guys, but that is the best gift you could ever give someone haha Austin, myself, his parents, 5 siblings + spouses, 14 nieces & nephews, + an aunt and a friend headed to California bright and early December 8th to spend a few days at Disneyland & Knott's Berry Farm before boarding the Carnival Splendor for 7 days! It was fabulous. We had a blast going on ride after ride, seeing the awesome water show, and enjoying Disneyland all decorated for Christmas. Sunday morning we boarded our awesome ship and sailed away to beautiful Cabo San Lucas Mexico where we spent 2 days taking a pirate ship, attempting some snorkeling (couldn't see anything at our spot), and doing some serious bartering at the flee markets in order to purchase some awesome souvenirs. Cabo is an amazing place, and I wish we'd have gotten to spend some more beach time, but we had a blast. After two marvelous days in Cabo we sailed to Puerta Vallarta where we got to hang out and swing from the trees in the Mexican forest. We spent our whole day ziplining in Puerta and had so much fun. They even let the little kids who were under 5 zipline. They loved it. We had several days at sea where we enjoyed movies, games, mini golf, shows, food, and ICE CREAM.... lots of Ice cream :) This was Austin and my 3rd cruise together and I think we both agreed this was our favorite ship we've been on. It was definitely the nicest. We did find out after we got on the ship that our ship was the one that had mechanical difficulties last year and was stuck in the middle of the ocean where they had to fly in spam and such for the passengers to eat.... but the Splendor didn't give us any trouble, luckily. We had so much fun making memories and spending time with the Hoffmann family and look forward to our next vacation.
