3 Days To Go!!!!!!

The puppy stories are too funny. What is it about underwear and puppies? My brother got a puppy and he only went for my niece's underwear - and that was her thongs!!!!! She was just mortified to see the puppy run down the stairs with her thong wrapped around the puppies head.

Good to read we've got a group that knows its alcohol. Word of advice on ordering margaritas onboard. Many of the CMs make them on the sour side. You have to ask them to make them sweet. And if you're willing to spend the extra $$$ then ask the CM to use a better quality tequilla.

Safe travels to everyone who is on the road last night and today. The remaining group here is dwindling.

We have a big excursion planned in Cozumel. A three reef snorkeling trip with Eagle Ray Divers. We did this trip back in 2006 and loved it!!!! Only back then Cozumel was still recovering from hurricane Wilma and the snorkeling wasn't as good. Hopefully the fish population has recovered.

This excursion ends around 3pm so not too much time to shop. We usually make a quick round of the shops close to the pier. I'm the one in the family that haggles with vendors.

Both kids are on a one night camping trip with their summer camp. They are just tent camping about 1/2 hour from their camp. But its a strenuous mile long walk to the campsite and last year both kids had brought bulky luggage. It was a miserable hike.

This year they went with the "less is more" principle and just put their pajamas and change of clothes in their school backpacks. Then they can just carry the sleeping bag in their hands.

I just literally started packing the non-clothes: snorkeling gear, beach stuff. Then I picked out what I'm going to wear on formal and semi formal night. Got out the pirate costume. And then outfits for all the casual nights. Plus shoes.

In the past my formal and semi formal outfits were different colors meaning I had to wearing different colored shoes. Not this year. Both outfits are black so I can wear the same shoes.

I'm doing everyone's laundry right now. Tomorrow I will pack all the kids' stuff and finish mine.

Our flight on Friday isn't until 4pm so no need to get up early. I can pack all the toiletries that morning.

Last, but not lease, pack all the FE gifts. They turned out to weigh a heck of a lot more than I expected.

And get this.....DH just came up to me and asks if me and the kids have extra room in our luggage for his stuff. The nerve I told him no mooching off our luggage.

The packing has begun and the discussions about what to take and what not to take are underway. We have an early day tomorrow but are going to head to DTD for lunch at T-Rex before driving to Canaveral.

Hopefully I will get a chance to meet everyone on the ship.

Not with current airline weight restrictions. My family could easily have gotten by with three suitcases, but we took five to keep everything below 50 pounds.

I am SO looking forward to beaches! Swimming pools aren't anything similar to a beach, even if they have slides, fountains, and waterfalls.

2 DAYS TO GO!!!!!
Well, today is our 2nd sea day on the ship. I have a feeling it will be a very late morning for us. Probably hit Topsiders just as its closing.

I will most likely do one of the bingo sessions. I love playing bingo on DCL but its getting super expensive. I'm not a big fan of those electronic bots. I think half the thrill is searching the cards for the numbers.

I forgot to ask who wants to hang out at Serenity Bay on Castaway Cay? Both kids are doing the teen wild side in the morning so I don't have to be at the family beach. I plan on doing some serious sun bathing at Castaway Cay with a good book in one hand and a fancy drink in the other.

As for today in real life......I have to run to the eye doctor's office and pick up a new supply of contact lenses. Was down to my last pair. Once I get back then I finish the packing.

Oh yes, have to remind DH to print out our boarding passes.

This is getting so exciting I'm having a hard time typing....
