Had this weekend at Theo and Sarah's...and almost all the family...Shaun was missing as he had a flu bug...we missed him....especially his singing for the birthdays we celebrated! Our little princess, Zoie turned one and Papa Marv had another birthday as well...and we got enough to eat...sigh!
We had a first in December....a cruise....was seven days and we were with a group of friends that totaled 19...unfortunately I didn't get a group picture of all of us but maybe can include a few on pictures here...we left ahead of a BIG storm in Wisconsin...one of those kind that could be classified as a 'storm of the century'...that being said we did get a touch of it as had rather high seas one night and part of a day...a few didn't handle that so well....and it was part of the same storm system that had come through Wisconsin. We had four stops and 2 days at sea...the stops were...Key West, Grand Cayman Island, Cozumel and Castaway Island
leaving Port Canaveral
our ship docked at Key West...our first stop
this was the high seas we had....they would occasionally hit our porthole!
our table on the formal dress night dinner
and another....think every one is on there somewhere!
didn't know Farmer Marv had a secret career on Grand Cayman...here's proof!
some of our friends who met our ship on Grand Cayman and arranged for us to have a bus tour of the island...a special highlight for sure!
and then there was 'fun night' for dinner!
Some of the Mayan ruins we saw on Cozumel...very interesting
and of course, a picture with Minnie....she came for breakfast with us one day!
as did Mickey!
the last night of sailing...smooth seas and sunset!
So now we are experienced 'cruisers'!... not sure when or where we will do it again but did enjoy a good time and experience for now!
