Wes had me laughing from day 1. There have been ups and downs but I really think his sense of humor has made all the difference.
Ready to embark on our honeymoon and our new life together. Ulf Swenson was the ship's captain and we met him at one of the evening shows. He was most likely already questioning our ages when the waiter walked by and Captian Ulf offered to buy us some drinks. We smiled at each other and said, "Two Sprites!"
