Honeymoon / Last Vacation: The Florida Keys

0

Just over 15 years ago we had a very small wedding. It consisted of a long weekend trip to Kentucky during Thanksgiving, getting a marriage license, getting married, and then coming back home to our normal life. We never had a honeymoon. That is until this past week. We decided to take a trip to the Florida Keys for a week, without the kids.  It’s our Honeymoon combined with the last vacation we’ll have before moving to Hawaii!

It was what we needed and so much more.

The trip started with a drive to Kentucky to drop the kids off at the in-laws. We then headed to the airport in Kentucky for our flights to Florida. Once we reached Florida we picked up a vehicle through Drive STI and headed to our final destination in Islamorada to the Postcard Inn Resort for a week of NO KIDS!

I was finally able to mark off my list to go snorkeling, which was great!  Here are some pictures from our snorkeling trip. These pictures were taken underwater, which is why they are not super clear. Snorkeling for the first time and loving every minute of it.

Overall, it was a great trip, without the kids. We got to relax, most of the time. Unfortunately, hubby was sick with some nasty virus/cold most of the time. However, he worked through it and still had a good time.
