Did I mention I was going on a cruise? We took the whole fam damily and had a ball!! I’ve never been on a cruise before, this trip lasted 7 days and was the perfect amount of time to be on a boat. Any longer and I’d have had to start watching TV. There’s only so much you can do while at sea.
The boys spent many days at Camp Carnival. A wonderful experience for kids 2 – 5. Brody and Evan came home every day with their faces painted like batman! We swam in the pool, ate our faces off, and had quiet evening dinners. It was awesome.
This wasn’t any normal cruise, we just happened to be on the Grand Ol’ Opry cruise!! Lorena eat your heart out! I played cards with Sammy “yum yum” Kershaw! He taught me how to play Carribean Stud. It’s a card game you pervs. When Lori and I were in our 20’s we had major crushes on him and his tight jeans. I tell ya, once I figured out who he was (it took me a moment to recognize him) my face was in a permanent blush state! Michael wouldn’t let me make a ship to shore phone call to tell Lori. Meany!
Michael laughed and thought it was funny that I blushed about Sammy Kershaw. You know, a girl’s crush is very serious! My parents were totally GREEN with envy that we happened upon this GOO cruise. After 7 days, I realized, these country folk really like to gamble!
Photos will be forthcoming. I haven’t had a moment to myself to actually post pictures. Maybe tonight. However, tomorrow is share day at Brody’s school and he’s insisting upon a poster board with all of our pictures outlining his face painting adventures so that he can show his class.
Brody really cracks me up, we took them off the ship in Mazatlan and Brody pipes up “why is everyone speaking Spanish?” I really laughed – because you never know what is going to come out of his mouth. It’s amazing to me that he recognized it.
We docked in Long Beach on Sunday and finally debarked, collected our luggage (all 15 pieces of it), hauled it to the truck – only to find the truck battery dead. I guess the tow truck driver said they receive about 15 calls a day from the terminal about dead batteries. 🙂 We weren’t the only dumb dumbs.
