Thanks for sharing Cass. I'm really enjoying it. Sorry the cruise didn't go as well as it could . You and Rob definately deserve a cruise by yourselves after this one. What great memories you have made though. She is adorable, even when she is not so princess like.

I think that if I mention the word "Disney" they may freak out! I'm off to Panama this week so I'm going to miss your updates for a whole week. I'm in withdrawal already. Have fun at the party tomorrow!!!
Oh a girls only cruise sounds Fantabulous!!!!!!!!! We've convinced many adults (no kids) to go on DCL and they've all loved it! We did 2 cruises before Kira and they were completely awesome!! We are doing Alaska in 2011 without Kira and while we will miss her, I am looking forward to it!

Have fun in Panama! I will post some pics of Kira's party

Yup, exactly, we will remember all the good parts and eventually we won't even remember the hard times. And she's still OUR princess

Don't cha just love it...when a lurker speaks.

Cass/Rob...have enjoyed your many adventures. Through you writings…I get to take a ‘virtual Disney vacation’. Thank you for taking the time to write them.

I'll start with a comment...looks like I've seen a picture like this before --- the faces were different...looks like a great addition to another photo you have like this. Am sure you will cherish this one...while 'in wait' for the following generation to share the same shot/similar location/beautiful smiles.

One word...FANTASTIC!!

We've both been blessed to cross paths with Brenda/Jason & Nancy (momma goose)/Chuck. I have to agree with you...wonderful...giving...great-great people. I could go on...but...too many humble people are already blushing.

I saw the photo of Wira...and this brought back great memories. Our first sailing in Jan of 2000, Wira was our Server. He was fantastic with (then) four very energetic children. Am sure I have some photos of him entertaining and taking great care of our kids. He quickly understood...if the kids were happy...the mom/dads could relax and enjoy themselves. Just Nan and I returned to the Wonder 14 months later...it appeared they were grooming him for more responsibility. It is outstanding - to see him in a higher position...he is fantastic!!! Am hopeful...he's on board when we sail in 11 months.

You have a beautiful daughter. The great thing I see through all your trippies...she appears to be 'well loved' - by you both. Am sure you'll still have some 'bumps in the road' (who doesn't/won't)...but...you'll always have heart-warming memories to day dream on.

Again...thank you for taking the time to offer us very detailed writings and wonderful photos of your adventures. Blessings on all. K

What a wonderful thoughtful post!! I've heard really good things about you from Momma Goose and all of your posts that I have read in the past only confirms just how right she is

Thanks for taking the time to read and come out of lurkdom to post






I think I have recovered enough from the week-end, let's get on with this thing, shall we?

Day 12 Part 1

October 26th - Day At Sea



Kira was up around 8 am so we all got ready and headed for Topsiders for breakfast. Kira was a little crazy this morning and I don't think she ate a whole lot.



Rob was about 10 minutes into his breakfast when he suddenly announces that he NEEDS to go back to bed and he just flees from the table to return to the room.




He didn't even stop to give me a chance to say anything, he was just gone!


OooooooooK

Guess it's just me and Kira now. I tried to get her to eat a little more breakfast and then we went to explore the ship a little.

We went down to Beat Street so she could see that cool area. We watched the waves roll by while she had fun playing in the portholes.






We went to all the places that she could run around without being in anyone's way too much. We actually had a good time for the most part.

She loved pressing the button to deck 4




We walked all the way around deck 4. We got in the way a little of some joggers near the forward part of the ship where it narrows and is covered but she enjoyed seeing it.







Then we made our way up to the Club and I let her play for a couple of hours.

Mostly, she just went up and down th slide.



It was really starting to get busy and she was being pushed around by the bigger kids so we went in search of a quieter area and found exactly what she needed....an empty room! The little room with the computers was empty and locked so I asked a CM why it was closed. She said that there weren't enough counselors there to open that area but as long as I stayed with her, we were welcome to go in and play.



She was thrilled to have the place all to herself! We played some computer games for quite awhile.





We read books and she ran around. It was great!

I knew there was going to be a Princess Gathering in the Atrium so about 10 minutes before it was supposed to start we left the club and went to get in line.

We got there and the line was ridiculously long!!!!!! It went all the way back well past Lumieres!!!!!!! I knew she wouldn't last that long in the line so I asked her if it was OK if we just went upstairs and watched the Princesses for awhile and she said sure!

We went up to deck 4 and we watched Belle and Cindy and Snow White and Aurora. She seemed relatively happy to just watch them but I was kind of ticked about the long lines. It was the same with the photos before/after dinner, the lines were just too long for little kids to wait.

I don't have a solution but Disney really needs to address this because it's such a pain in the butt! I would have purchased way more photos if the lines were shorter and we were able to get more portraits done.




So while we watched the Princesses greet the hordes of children downstairs, I looked up and couldn't believe what I saw. There were 4 long banners hanging down, each with it's own princess on it but these princesses looked like they were anorexic!!!

Now, I am not one to complain about all the gorgeous 100-pound, 5 foot 10 inch models, who still get airbrushed before they get slapped onto the cover of all the beauty magazines but I was a more than a little perturbed about these banners!

As it is, the princesses in the movies are all extremely skinny but these new renderings of them made them look like stick women!!!

I don't know why it bothered me THAT much but it really, really did!!





Look at their necks!!!!!!!!!!!!








Is it just me or does anyone else have a problem with these?????


Ok, off my soap box now

Day 12 Part 2

October 26th - Day At Sea






Kira was getting a little grumpy by this point so I knew it was time to feed her! We made our way up to deck 9, and as we were walking along, I asked her if she wanted some pizza and she said yes so we started walking towards Pinocchio's.

On our way there, we ran into Scott, Lori, Julia and Harrison! Kira was immediately drawn to them so we chatted for a bit and then headed for the Gazebo to see Minnie Mouse together.





We said good-bye to her favourite play mates and went and got some pizza. It was really busy near the pools so we walked up near the Mickey Pool looking for a table but there were none! We ended up walking into Topsiders and finding an empty table there.

She was pretty grumpy and was acting up again.





So while little Miss Cranky Pants ate her pizza I watched the throngs of people go through the buffet line.


Can I just take a few minutes here to comment on proper buffet attire?


For the most part, people were dressed properly but then there was that 10% of people who just shocked the heck out of me! I couldn't believe what some people were wearing!!!

I saw a man in a small bathing suit (a bit more coverage than a speedo) and nothing else! I saw tons of people in swimsuits AND no shoes!!! I'm sorry but just because you are near a pool, doesn't make it right to enter an area where they serve food in your teeny tiny little bikini and barefeet!

It's a good thing that I wasn't eating because I might have lost my lunch right there and then!

Then, this woman came in and she was wearing her swimsuit but both her butt cheeks had popped out to say Hello!





She might as well had been wearing a thong cus there really wasn't much left to the imagination if you know what I mean!

My jaw just dropped and I couldn't stop staring at her! It was like watching a car accident, you just HAVE to watch!

So she left and I shook my head trying to clear the image and then 2 minutes later she returned!

Mind you, she must have adjusted her swimsuit because she wasn't showing as much when she came back but it was still gross!

And this time I snapped a pic



Yes, you all now have to witness what I witnessed, however, you are much luckier than I was because this is the PG rated version and the railing is hiding a good portion of the ickiness!!











I have to go to the doc, so I think it's best that I end this chapter now so that you all have time to get over that picture before you are able to eat lunch

To be continued....

The drawings look almost like caricatures....

...and the "cheeks"...well, even if they had had proper coverage from the swimsuit, it would still be inappropriate.
