It's been 10 days and we have arrived in Ft. Lauderdale. It was hard to blog when Internet cost $.55 a minute. So I kept a written journal instead. I have trips in there dating from 2004 and it's a nice tradition to keep logging trips in there. Back to reality soon. We have to report to disembark in 30 minutes, and then it's on to the airport and to Buffalo.

It's about 5 am and here we are at the airport, waiting for our flight to board. There are a remarkable number of people here for it being so darn early in the morning! I guess that's why they call it the city that never sleeps? No, wait we're in Buffalo. ;) To Atlanta, then Acapulco. First time using the new passport, even though it was issued in 2007. It would all be very exciting if I didn't miss Annie so much. She was sleeping peacefully when we left. I'm trying not to think about how it will go when she wakes up and realizes Mom and Dad are gone.

We are almost packed and getting ready to leave for Buffalo. There seems like so much stuff we have to bring. I always worry that I'm going to forget something important. But, in the end, most stuff can be picked up on the way. As long as we have our documents, Annie, and her snuggy, we are all set.

The challenge this morning appears to be keeping everything packed. Annie loves pulling things out of our bags, carrying them around, and then discarding them somewhere else. Also, she insisted on wearing this pair of pants this morning that are too long on her. She keeps coming by and saying, "pants, please," so I'll pull them up for her.

It's been a long time since we've done a big trip like this! Nervous, excited.

Coming soon ... vacation!

Dear Blog Readers,
It's been a few months and we will soon be going on vacation! The original purpose of this blog (sort of) was to share our travels, so I'm going to do that again. I'm not sure how much Internet access we will have, and this will be an easy way to update everyone on our whereabouts.

So, first, an introduction.
What? A cruise through the Panama Canal, starting in Acapulco and ending in Fort Lauderdale.
When? Coming soon in March
Why? Um, it's a vacation. Do you really need a why? :) Seriously, though, this is a baby-moon, and the first international vacation we've taken in over 5 years. Back in the day, we loved a good trip and have traveled all over Europe, a little bit of South America, Egypt, and have seen quite a bit of the U.S., including the cross-country drive and trip to the Southwest that we blogged about on here. These days, most of our traveling involves going to Buffalo.

See you back here soon with our travel log!
