So this is a BIG announcement for our family. Something we have only dreamed about.
We are going on a DISNEY CRUISE! 7 day/6 night Caribbean. What!?!
I really can't even believe I am saying that (I know some of you are probably laughing at how cheesy that is or sounds, but to us we never thought this would be possible).
Well this year we wanted to do a big vacation for "us" (Ned & I) and things just didn't work the way we had planned. So lucky for us we decided to really check out the cruise idea. We found that kids cruise FREE in Jan & Feb this year and we had almost half our trips cost saved on rewards points from our credit card! So the whole trip (flight, Marriott Hotel, AND the cruise (including ALL food, activities, etc) would be about the same price we budgeted for "our" vacation. And what an opportunity to bond with our little ones and spend this time together with them.
Yes there is a water slide and a movie screen on the pool deck.
Ella was SO excited when she got home from school. She got out this board and drew a picture of us flying (they have never been on an airplane) and then us on the cruise ship (she has a princess hat on)!
I was trying to get pictures of the kids SO excited looking online at all we get to do, but instead captured a chunky baby smiling at me wherever I went! I CAN EAT HIM UP ALL DAY!
Telling the kids...they didn't get it right away, but eventually got the idea...and squeals ensued (even the kids).
Ella's last words last night, "Well thanks for telling us mom (in a very sarcastic voice) now I REALLY wont be able to sleep!)
