As a Christmas gift, Colin's parents took the entire family on a Disney cruise. We all had a lot of fun, and it went by very fast. I would recommend a Disney cruise over a family vacation to the parks ANY DAY (and that's coming from a huge fan of all Disney parks!). Everything about it, from the food to the service to the cleanliness is outstanding. There is something for all ages to enjoy.
The kids were enthralled with all the fun activities that catered to them. Jack and Grace spent a lot of time in the Oceaneer's Club. They had every fun activity you could think of for the kids - baking, pajama parties, parades, characters, computers, dress up...everything! The day we were at Disney's private island, the kids spent the day at the beach with them. They had a section blocked off and secured for the kids with sand castle making, water, dancing...again, everything a kid could want. Erin went to the nursery quite a bit, too. We got an envelope with pictures of her with Sleeping Beauty and tons of little crafts they did with her.
They lacked sleep in a major way, causing Colin and me to be embarrassed by their poor behavior and table manners. The picture below of G sleeping on the couch occurred within an hour of being home. And for those who don't know my kids, they do not willingly fall asleep. Sleep is not something they enjoy. So you know she was exhausted! But FUN was definitely had by all. We are thankful for the great memories. I didn't take as many pictures as I would've liked to, but here are the ones I did take:
Also, this complimentary lotion is amazing too. I'm not looking forward to it running out. It's the best lotion ever!!
