January 10, 2011 – Day 8
Today was an at Sea day. It was a busy one! We woke up and had a quick breakfast before getting our swim suits on.
We went up to the pools and grabbed a spot. Austin went to check out the splash zone. I think he was not impressed. LOL
Alyssa went up and got in line for the Mickey Slide. She was nervous.
She got spun around and ended up coming down on her belly/side. She didn’t love it, but talks about doing it again daily!
Pete and Austin modeled their sun hats! Arn’t they cute boys? My favorites!
Austin was with his Jersey Boy uncle so of course he practiced his fist pumping.
Alyssa enjoyed the Mickey Pool.
Pete and I decided to head to Lumier’s for lunch. I love the details here.
Lunch was good. We finished in time to head to the DVC presentation before the matinee showing of Disney Villians.
Alyssa was excited for the show to start. So was I! I love some villains. Malificent is my absolute favorite Disney Character!
The kids both loved it! LOL
After the show the kids went back to their room to sleep and Pete and I got ready for our brunch in Palo. I love Palo. Even though it was a different ship, Palo still is sentimental to us. Makes us think of our first dance and our reception!!
The Tea was alot of fun. We enjoyed it. I am not a hot drink drinker, but I loved the desert! LOL
I snapped a picture of the private room. You have to have between 12 – 14 people to eat in here. It is really nice.
Tonight was formal night. I was excited to dress up. So was Alyssa.
We had some professional pictures taken, but they turned out horrible. This is a good one I took of my sister’s family.
Didn’t Aunt Lisie do a good job picking out the kid’s outfits? I love Austin’s little suit! Sooo cute!
Alyssa looks so good in purple! She was in a posing kinda mood tonight!
After dinner we got in line to see the Characters in their fancy clothes!
Donald was up first!
Alyssa and Donald had a little dance!
We got back in line for Mickey and Minnie. Look at Alyssa and Uncle Petey sharing some love in line!
Pete is such a great Uncle and Alyssa loves him so much!
It’s Mickey Mouse time.
Look at Alyssa’s feet. She is a flip flop girl for sure! She was not a fan of the dress shoes!
I love Austin’s face! LOL
Pete and I love Mickey too!
After Mickey Pete went to change. It was so hot and he wanted out of that suit. We went over to see Minnie next. She was dressed so pretty!
Kisses for Minnie Mouse!
I love that she held Austin! Sure he was only 4 months old on this trip, but we will always have these pictures to remind him of the trip. Hopefully he will develop a love of Disney like his big sister has. She treasures the pictures from her “Baby Cruise”.
You would think the portholes were there just for Alyssa. We took pictures of her every time we passed one. In this one she is squeezing the heck out of Austin!
Another attempt at a family picture. LOL
Alyssa’s shoelessness cracks me up every time. It was easier to let her take them off instead of fighting with a 3 year old at 11pm. LOL
We made it back to our room. I love the turn down service.
Pete and I changed our clothes and then we had a knock on our door. It was Alyssa…she was coming for our chocolates. Every night!!! LOL
Pete and I had changed and we took a bottle of wine and headed up to the deck. We talked alot, but mostly about buying DVC. A lot of my friends own and they love it. Our friends Shawn and Nichole bought on the cruise and they had warned up that the incentives would be good. They were right. Would we buy DVC? Stay tuned! LOL
