2011 Disney Vacation ~ Day 8

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.

Posted Image

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

Posted Image

Alyssa went up and got in line for the Mickey Slide. She was nervous.

Posted Image

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!

Posted Image

Pete and Austin modeled their sun hats! Arn’t they cute boys? My favorites!

Posted Image

Austin was with his Jersey Boy uncle so of course he practiced his fist pumping.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Alyssa enjoyed the Mickey Pool.

Pete and I decided to head to Lumier’s for lunch. I love the details here.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Lunch was good. We finished in time to head to the DVC presentation before the matinee showing of Disney Villians.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Alyssa was excited for the show to start. So was I! I love some villains. Malificent is my absolute favorite Disney Character!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

The kids both loved it! LOL

Posted Image

Posted Image

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

Posted Image

I snapped a picture of the private room. You have to have between 12 – 14 people to eat in here. It is really nice.

Posted Image

Tonight was formal night. I was excited to dress up. So was Alyssa.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

We had some professional pictures taken, but they turned out horrible. This is a good one I took of my sister’s family.

Posted Image

Didn’t Aunt Lisie do a good job picking out the kid’s outfits? I love Austin’s little suit! Sooo cute!

Posted Image

Alyssa looks so good in purple! She was in a posing kinda mood tonight!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

After dinner we got in line to see the Characters in their fancy clothes!

Donald was up first!

Posted Image

Alyssa and Donald had a little dance!

Posted Image

We got back in line for Mickey and Minnie. Look at Alyssa and Uncle Petey sharing some love in line!

Posted Image

Pete is such a great Uncle and Alyssa loves him so much!

It’s Mickey Mouse time.

Posted Image

Look at Alyssa’s feet. She is a flip flop girl for sure! She was not a fan of the dress shoes!

Posted Image

I love Austin’s face! LOL

Posted Image

Pete and I love Mickey too!

Posted Image

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!

Posted Image

Kisses for Minnie Mouse!

Posted Image

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”.

Posted Image

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!

Posted Image

Another attempt at a family picture. LOL

Posted Image

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

Posted Image

We made it back to our room. I love the turn down service.

Posted Image

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

Posted Image

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
