Pirates at Sea con't.

continued from previous

It was almost 11 at this point and honestly, Eric was toast. I’m not sure why, but he was. Just crabby and overwrought. Evan wasn't much far behind but was faring a little better. Both had really wanted to stay up but instead we made an executive call. Tomorrow was the day that both boys had been looking forward to for months, Eric in particular. What we didn't want was any kind of meltdown and as a result the verdict was handed down that Evan and Jeff would take off to see Avengers, Kendall was out with her friends and Eric and I would stay in. For me, honestly, it was perfect. A little alone time can be a nice thing and it was day 8 of a lot of togetherness. I put Eric to bed and settled in to take some pictures of our FE goodies that we’d received so far before they were even more spread around the room and to pack up our beach bag so we could hit the road early

So here they are, a few of the lovely gifts we received













My favorite



In fact it is on my desk next to me right now

Jeff's favorite





It's in the shop with him, being used as he builds the plane
One of our castaway club gifts



Sadly the ink wore off within a month of using it.

Fun DVC swag, these are luggage handle wraps and I use them all the time!



Nice big tote



Notebook





Pin that I'd been invited to stop by and pick up (and then wore for pirate night)



And...a funny thing we realized once the lights went out, we had a glowing balloon!



With that, I was done and went to bed. I did hear everyone come in but we all drifted of quickly enough each time.

Great updates! Pirate night looks like fun! Love the idea of the Fireworks at sea.

You got some nice things from the FE group and DVC. Looking forward to the Castaway Cay day!

Fun pirate night pictures! The Mickey bandanas are cute. I like the Mickey/paintbrush plates, too.

Wonderful update! The Meridian lounge looks so wonderful. I remember that when the first pictures of the Dream were available online, I thought that this was one of the spots I needed to explore if I ever got to go on that ship (I guess I would enjoy it on the Fantasy as well... ).

Those pirate nights celebrations seem to make that day a very long day. I wonder how it will work for us as pirate night will be on the day when we are at Cozumel. We have a snorkel adventure planned, so I imagine that I might have the same problem as Eric...

Looks like a fun evening!!! Sorry about the Aquaduck incident. Bad enough to get stuck, but having to hear about it wouldn't make it any better.

I think I'd give up on the fireworks pictures too. Always hard to get good ones, and it is easier to enjoy them without looking through a camera anyway!

Looks like there were a lot of cool FE gifts. I wonder who the Disdads keyring was from...

I apologize! I am really late with my birthday wishes to you!





On the other hand, I am very early in my recognition of National Margarita Day!
I'll be returning home from Mexico on 2/22, so I won't be able to send greetings to you on the actual holiday.





Been really busy keeping up with the BC/YC FAQ board, and managing some mischief over there. Oh yeah, and cleaning up after our east coast blizzard. We got around 2 feet of snow. No school again today for the boys. We are very lucky- we never lost power during the storm.

Now, off to catch up on your update.

Fantastic update!!!

Love the pictures of you, and of Jeff and of you and Jeff with your drinks in and out of the lounge. The one of you on deck with your drink is awesome!!!

Dinner looked and sounded amazing. I may troll around to see if I can find a recipe for the carrot, coconut, golden raising slaw. That sounds really good.

Too funny on your "dessert series".

Nice booty! Both the FE stuff and DVC swag.

ARGH on photobucket! I just figured out that you can't resize the photos, you have to upload them at the size you want. I haven't switched over to the new version. Well, I did for about 5 minutes then I bailed. Not looking forward to being forced into the new version.

Great new updates, Cynthia!

I REALLY REALLY love all the photos .... what a walk down memory lane. We LOVE Meridien and have spent quite a bit of time in there.

Pirate dinner is my least favourite, but it looks like you enjoyed your time a lot.

Cute FE gifts! And I had to LOL when I saw all the DVC and DCL gifts - another set will be collected next week.

I am glad you enjoyed some quiet time in the room, too!

Not a huge fan of the menu. It just doesn't appeal to me much, so we usually make that Palo or Remy night.
