Okay, so check it out! (That's Idol talk for this is good!) My Russell earned a trip at work….a Caribbean Cruise….a what you ask? Oh yes, a Caribbean Cruise. We were totally stoked (teen boy lingo) to realize that someone else would be paying for our 30th anniversary trip (which isn’t actually until November, but hey, who’s counting??, Oh, yeah, we are!). Anyways, life is crazy for the Sheryl Holmes… Son’s wedding March 22nd, get back to work, then go to Colorado for my Jackson’s birthday, and spend a week with my girl and her hubby, oh, and my baby J!, Come home and work for 3 days, then get on a plane for Miami…tired yet? well it gets better…Cruise to Jamaica for a swim in the Caribbean,
lunch at a resort,
then hike up a 935 ft. waterfall - yes Sheryl really did the hike, after much consideration, and splashed around in the waters there.
(Russell thought he had died and gone to heaven) as we had the late seating for dinner, we could totally do both!
They even amped up the wave to the fastest & tallest wave whenever Russell’s turn came up. I guess they could tell a seasoned pro when they saw one!
One glorious thing about the cruise was relaxing and sleeping in. Something that neither of us get to do past 7 am on a Saturday once in a while. We felt rested for a few day, then back to reality. Then cruise back to Miami for a day of flying to Salt Lake City for our Brendon’s graduation. Great times for sure, they were perfect hosts. We feel a bit overwhelmed by our blessings of weddings in the Lord’s temples, an opportunity to go on this lovely cruise and celebrate with our kids their accomplishments in life. Now for the intense weeks of preparation for our Cody to get to the MTC June 11th. Oh yeah, and Skyler’s High School graduation on June 12th! We are blessed.
