Lightning keeps trying to scare everyone. She hides behind the speaker and jumps out when we least expect it!
We made our own pizzas. I ate one slice and decided that I no longer like pizza. 🙁
We made a trip to EPCOT just to get a DoofenSlurper. We love Phineus and Ferb and they made a drink after the evil scientist.
We checked out Downtown Disney and their Chima display. There is a new section coming to Lego Land in May that will be Chima themed. I love Chima!
We painted flower pots for party favors.
I had a bounce house again this year. The weather was perfect and we bounced all day and into the evening.
Daddy even joined in the fun.
B can jump HIGH!
Me too! YIPPIE!
Grandma Susie was able to come. I have missed her the last many birthdays but we are all glad she is back in Florida.
Birthday chocolate chip cookie, since I don’t like cake.
Just like last year, I wore my dinosaur dress-up for most of the day!
Loving some awesome b-day gifts from my amazing friends and family.
B’s girlfriend, Zoe! I love her too!
After the party a few people stuck around and we came inside and played with Legos for a while.
B and I got to go to the Pirate League shop and get some neat Jack Sparrow costumes and dress up stuff for Pirate’s Night on the Disney Fantasy. I wanted NOTHING to do with anything other than the outfit. I refued to wear the make-up or take the oath or anything above and beyond wearing clothing.
I liked getting the pirate medallion and sword.
Then I went into ULTRA GRUMP mode.
I relaxed a bit before dinner and the pirate celebration(which i never made it to because I was EXHAUSTED).
Such darling children.
Showing off my mad skills.
Everyone dressed really pirate-y for pirate night! Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie even got in the spirit.
Daddy was being a goof!
Like father like son!
Wow the REAL Jack Sparrow!!!
We had a great cruise. I loved every minute of it. Meeting characters was easier this time as I wasn’t as scared of them. Mickey even made a special appearance in the concierge lounge so the line wasn’t as long!
I can’t wait to get back on another cruise ship! I could live on them!
We missed the Costa Maya port of call due to a medical emergency on the ship. We made a sharp turn in the middle of the night to drop a passenger off. Our itinerary got mixed around but the results were an extra day at sea and a little rest and relaxation!
In Cozumel we took the Discover Atlantis Submarine tour. AMAZING! You take a little tender boat out to the submarine.
It is a tight squeeze but we love our family so it wasn’t bad!
We kept watching the depth to see how deep we would go!
We saw a LOT of fish! The camera pictures don’t do justice to the amazing sea life we saw.
75 feet and still going deeper.
103 feet! UGH
111 feet was the max depth we went. Totally amazing to me.
After our submarine tour we visited the local shops. We got some hand made bracelets with our names on them. This lady made them as we waited!
We called it an early day and headed back to the ship for some food and sitting on the balcony. I loved watching all the little ships and boats moving around the harbor area.
Checking out the Disney Fantasy from the shore in Grand Cayman.
We took a tour called “Saltwater Forest”. We LOVED it. They had some samples of sea life and algae.
We explored the mangroves.
I ran the camera quite a bit.
We saw LOTS of giant lizards! I guess they were iguanas. They were EVERYWHERE.
The wall in someones yard backing up the the little canal we floated down was a nice hiding spot.
Snuggling with Daddy as we zipped about.
B took this picture… it was just beautiful!
Standing on the stern and looking for sea life was my favorite part.
The guide was so amazing and really took a lot of time to explain things to B and me.
Getting down with nature.
A sea squirt!
Jelly fish! They were everywhere.
I just giggled with delight when I touched the jellyfish. I love jellyfish!
We saw lots of iguanas.
We even saw a huge stingray when we made a quick stop at a beach.
I got to lick the salt off the mangrove leaves.
Such a happy, salt filled, kid.
We stopped in “Hell”. It was neat to see what the old coral beds looked like now that they are up higher on land since the water receded.
I had such a great time. I was beyond tired when we finally got back to the ship. I zonked right out!
