after 7 days of fam time, good eating, mexico, and relaxation, all the fun came to an end. it was an absolute blast and i miss seeing all of my cousins and family every day! we got off of the boat in long beach and since my brother couldn’t come on the cruise, he and his girlfriend met us all for lunch near the airport before us out-of-towners flew home. sidenote to all of you ladies: never wear a maxi dress to the airport. despite how comfy you think it will be, you get a full-on/full-bodypart patdown at the airport in front of everyone (which was kind of embarassing to be honest) because you could be “hiding something.” Good security I guess, just not my cup of tea. consider yourselves warned.
