I have loved to travel my entire life! Over the years Zach has learned to love travel as well and we enjoy packing as many vacations as we can into our agendas 🙂 Since our honeymoon we have vowed to go on a kids-free trip every year on our anniversary. One of the benefits of getting married over Memorial Day weekend is that it’s a great time to take a trip! Today we’ve been married 3 years. I swear I keep thinking it’s been four years but it’s only been three! I wonder why I keep wanting to add that extra year? Maybe I’m just in a hurry to go on our BIG 5 year anniversary trip!
Our first trip to celebrate our marriage was our honeymoon. We went to the Maldives in the middle of the Indian Ocean and even got to stay in an over water bungalow! It was AMAZING and probably the best trip either of us have ever been on. While our anniversary trips can’t compare to this one, so far anyway, they are all still fun times we get to spend bonding together and celebrating our marriage. Want to see more of our honeymoon? We went to Ft Lauderdale, Maldives and NYC! Here are the Facebook albums (this is back when FB only allowed 60 pics per album so there are several) all about our amazing trip! Album 1, Album 2, Album 3, Album 4, Album 5, and Album 6!
For our first wedding anniversary we decided to go to Cancun, Mexico. We go on timeshare presentation vacations all the time and can get great deals on them (and if any of you want some too let me know!). We had a package for Cancun so we decided to take advantage of it. We also flew for free using our Thank You points through our credit card! On that trip we started trying to get pregnant and actually conceived Kye! We went to Cancun expecting it to be similar to the Bahamas but we LOVED it. We also LOVED the place we stayed, Laguna Suites, and hope to go back there again someday. Here’s the facebook album from that trip!
Last year we were new parents and very broke. Zach couldn’t afford to be taking off more work and with nursing I didn’t want to go far from Kye so we decided to just go away for a weekend. We dropped Kye with my mom in Melbourne and went down to Ft. Lauderdale on another timeshare deal trip 🙂 It was nice to have a break from parenthood and a great chance for us to reconnect (as everyone knows it’s tough being new parents to still put each other FIRST!). At this point I was actually blogging so here’s a look back at the blog entry on our 2nd anniversary! Can you believe we didn’t take a picture of ourselves together? Oh well…here’s one of each of us on our own!
This year money is still tight but thankfully we’d already paid for the trip before we put our house on the market! While you’re reading this blog entry at home or at work we’re enjoying CANCUN! Technically we’re going to Playa Del Carmen but it’s close enough. We again are using a timeshare deal trip (here is where we are staying) and are flying for free with the Thank You Points! Get ready for some great pictures when we get back…in the meantime just imagine us laying out and pigging out (but not having the goal of coming home pregnant!) here:
