Pretty Princesses (& Prince) on the high seas

Our last full day on the boat was a travel day. I had gotten tickets for the kids to meet the Princesses and so that was first up for the day after breakfast. Then we did the pool (more ice cream), had pictures taken with Stitch (the kid’s new favorite character) and more time in…

Castaway Cay & Pirate night

Today started bright and early. It was our day at Castaway Cay (Key) which is Disney’s Island in the Bahamas. JJ and I decided to run the 5K on the island and the kids were off to the Kids area. They (ok, Cailee) was reluctant but by the time the race was over and we…

A day at Atlantis!

Today we arrived in Bahamas. It was actually really cool coming into port and the kids got to see the clear blue water for the first time. It was also excursion day. It was pretty easy getting off the boat but boy was it windy once off. We had signed up for a full day…

So the kids definitely knew something was up – probably from the minute we landed in Orlando. Here’s how it went down. When we left for Florida, Connor was just not into it. He thought we were going to a gym meet which is not really his cup of tea. I thought he would be…

Bringing her best to Southeast Regionals

So many emotions today. So proud of Cailee for qualifying for Regionals, worried for her because I know she wants to do good, frustrated when she didn’t get the scores I thought she deserved and excited when she finished so well. We watched a few other rounds just to get acclimated to the facility –…

To Florida we go…

For the next ten days, we are Florida bound (and beyond). The kids don’t know all that we have planned and that’s quite possibly the best part of it. Even at this age, they don’t notice that their suitcases are stuffed to the brim with clothes, obviously more than they need for just a few…
