Summer Vacas!

We have been thinking about what we want to do for our big summer vacation this year and I think we have settled on a cruise! I am super excited! The thing is, I think it is going to be our first trip without the princess. I'm not sure if this mommy can handle it! Here are some pics from our cruise with her Christmas 2009.

I am very blessed to know that she will be well taken care of and not miss us at all when we are gone but...leaving my baby for a week?? Of course, I have already had the other moms say "i don't know how you can do it because I never could" which makes me feel extremely guilty and wonder if I'm a bad mom to leave her. I just think it would be a great opportunity for Ben and I to spend some quality time together. The Bible teaches God first, spouse second, family third. It's hard sometimes to work on that spouse second because you are both so focused on the baby. It would be nice to be husband and wife for a few days instead of just mommy and daddy! I just hope I don't cry for the whole week missing my girl! Right now, we are excited for a long weekend at the beach WITH my girl at the end of the month! Woohoo!!


  1. I am sure it will be hard, and you will probably cry. BUT, I think it will be good for you guys. You'll have a good time. When you get back, the reunion will be awesome! Have a good time. Don't feel guilty!

  2. Hi from Blog Club, Melissa! I'm jealous of your cruise plans! Your daughter is quite a cutie...looking forward to learning more about you & your site through BC.
