Cody and I took a trip together, just the two of us. We spent a week in Cancun, and then a few days in New Orleans, while my parents were generous enough to keep the kids with them. We went scuba diving, swimming in the infinity pool and lounging in the ocean, and a little sightseeing/shopping in Isla de Mujeres. It was a wonderful time, and we enjoyed New Orleans as well, though - to be honest - we weren't overly impressed. It was a nice city, with historic features; maybe living 20 minutes from downtown Philly and its' historic features (and food, events, etc.) have raised the bar for us. But then again, Cody and I aren't into big, wild parties with tons of people we don't know - so we wouldn't enjoy Mardi Gras. Overall, the trip was wonderful, and really helpful for us to have some time alone where we could relax together and just hang out!

This was funny - and VERY awkward!
