Everything was ship shape

Thursday we spent a whole day at sea...a whole day. I was a bit worried that I just might end up launching my own lifeboat just to be able to get away but thankfully the day was filled with entertainment and at no point did I feel the overwhelming urge to walk the plank. The girlies were back on the golf course and and the water slides and we even participated in a huge scavenger hunt that was really rather good fun. It was very very funny.

After lunch things slowed down enormously and we hung by the pool. At one point I could tell Lily was getting a little stir crazy so she just kicked back in her deck chair and admired the view while Rosie whizzed down the slides for the eleventy billionth time. Just being able to kick back with no interruptions was fabulous. No phones and no computers was so refreshing. I could have had both but chose not too. I loved not being interrupted. If I have them I have to use them, I have to respond to people it is just the way I am wired so leaving them behind was the best decision I could have made.

If there is water that is where you will find her
chlling...that big old bag went everywhere with her.
It's called a fun ship for a reason!

We went to back to back shows on Thursday evening and squeezed every last second out of the fun. We had to be up and at 'em quite early on Friday as the boat docked at 8am and we would receive our marching orders. I decided to have our bags carried off the ship allowing us a slower disembarkment. We went to breakfast and then waited for our eviction papers to be served.
I don't want to leave
enough photos Mum!
Never enough photos for this Diva.
and so we have been home for nearly a week and it isn't fair. Once you get back it is like you never left at all.

I saw the title of the post that was removed, I am a little with you! Cruising is my husbands thing! Not to be stuck up or anything, but the large majority of the people on the cruise are not people I would want to hang with. Like so low class on hairy man chest contest. Yuck! I do like different ports, but the food is so so for me! So glad the girls had a great time! You had better slides on your ship.

The pic of Rosie with her "family" of "stuffies" cracked me up!

I think it is wonderful that you are A- spontaneous and B- not afraid to take risks. I am not sure I would enjoy cruising, but the smiles on your girls faces make it seem worthwhile!
