A little over a month ago we went on a cruise with my parents, brother and sister-in-law and sister. The nephew and niece stayed home. This was the first time we've all traveled on a week long vacation since we got married a little over 3 years ago. This was mine and my husband's third cruise and we were so looking forward to it. We were on the Carnival Elation and our cruise was January 10-January 15. The winter weather almost derailed our road trip to Mobile. We were supposed to leave on the evening of January 9, but were afraid the weather was going to get bad so we left Sunday morning. We really hated to miss church, but it was a good thing we did because we wouldn't have made it if we hadn't. We ended up spending the night in some run down motel in south Alabama. We got to the port and were on the boat by 11:30 am.
