Have a great day. FE gifts entirely upto you, no rules on gifts

Grand Cayman

Wondering if anyone can help me. We have friends who will be on another cruise line, but we will be in port with them in Grand Cayman. We want to meet near the port and then head over to a beach. I'm just wondering if anyone knows a good meeting spot near the port that will be easy to find?

I'm almost done my FE gifts now so I am feeling a bit more relaxed. My son is looking over the computer at me right now and he says that I look like this:

Surprise trip no longer a surprise!

The documents arrived today and I just blew the surprise with one of our kids .... I sent my eldest to pick up the mail and he saw the sender and correctly concluded we are going on a cruise ... although he may keep the secret from the other kids.

Now he's willing to help me pack in secret! Maybe there is a good side to him knowing ...

We're counting down now .... 12 days and counting till we leave. See everyone soon!

If Vijay is willing to help you pack in secret, I am sure he will at least try to keep the secret for now.

You forgot to give us an important piece of information - how did Vijay react when he figured out a Disney cruise is in his near future?

See you all in 17 days!

Vijay was pretty excited but said he "knew something was going on". He loves disney, so he's happy. Apparently he overheard DH talking to our babysitter about it, so was already suspicious. Either way - HAPPY! He went and got his pirate outfit out from last year already!

It's my experience that the oldest one LOVES to know something his sibling(s) don't.

I love all the "dress" ideas for our party in the Walt Suite. Wow, I haven't heard the phrase "toga party" in a long, long time. So the dress code is officially now "anything goes!!!!!".

Bring whatever you like - nothing is required. I know there are wine glasses in the room. Just need a bottle opener.

Mackie.....wow, just two days until your wedding!!!! I'm amazed your still reading the DIS. That said, reading the DIS is the best stress reliever I know and doesn't give you a hangover.

Wouldn't it be great to wear your wedding dress on the ship! Its a shame that brides don't get other opportunities to wear their wedding dresses. Seems a waste for all the time, money and effort that goes into obtaining one (including getting a groom!!!).

Shelly....I give you a tremendous amount of credit for keeping the cruise a secret. There is no way I could do that.

Well this is my last post from home. Taxi picking us up in just over 6 hours so need a few hours sleep.
Going to be along day up at 4am, then the full day sat in airport lounges and airplane seats, at least we are lucky to get business class the whole way there and back this trip. Expecting to get to Old Key West about 11pm tomorrow night, which is 4am UK time (in other words 24 hours from waking to sleeping)
Will be having Internet at OKW but 3 of us with 1 connection means I won't get much DIS time.
Will keep reading even if I don't post.
Safe travels everyone.

Bev, Dave, Nicola, James, Wayne, Karen & Matthew,

Welcome to the States! Glad to have you back.

I'm starting to panic a little. I have one more week left at work, and I have a project that really needs to get done. Plus, we had a little incident at the house this weekend resulting in water damage, so now we have to deal with insurance adjusters and contractors before we leave. To top it off, I woke up this morning with a sore throat, and I really don't need to be sick right now, although I suppose it is better now than on the ship!

Happy Thursday everybody!

Glad to hear everyone is arriving safely - wow, the excitment factor is really beginning to rev up

Aurora's mom......ugh, water damage just stinks. Its never an "easy" fix. Hope everything gets fixed quickly.

I think your sore throat might be allergies. When I was driving home from the beach on Saturday my eyes were stinging so badly. It was really bad in south jersey but by the time I got to north jersey my eyes felt better.

I normally don't have a problem with allergies but this year I've had on-and-off sore throats that come and go without warning.

And I'm sure all this stress is making things feel worse. Take some extra vitamins over the next few days to help boost the immune system.

(Professor Farnsworth voice) Bad News, Everybody!

The Space Shuttle launch scheduld for Aug 18 has been postponed to the 25th. On the positive side we'll be approaching Grand Cayman but, unfortunately, we won't be there to see it.

For those who will be there early enough, they are still planning to launch a GPS satellite on a Boeing Delta 2 at 6:35 AM on Monday the 17th.
