We wanted to spend my 40th birthday as a family somewhere warm where Olivia could swim and we could enjoy some sunshine. She is a great swimmer and we wanted to see if she was ready to try snorkeling.
Southwest flies to Grand Cayman currently through Houston and Fort Lauderdale. Since we scored the Companion Pass this year, I fly free when Brian flies. We wanted to take advantage of this perk and Grand Cayman was one of the destinations on our list of vacation destinations.
