I absolutely can;t stand doing laundry on vacation, so kudos to you for doing it. I rather walk around in a pile knee deep when I get home. IDK - that's just me.

Beautiful pictures from the verandah. The last day must be so bittersweet. It seems like it went so fast.

Can you do a little recap at the end of your TR. I'd like to see the itinerary all pieced together.

Nice update! I love the family pic - turned out really nice of all of you, and you look fully in vacation mode! Eric's pirate dance is so cute! I wish we could all just let lose and be ourselves without feeling self concious.

IKWYM about wasted time. Jim always feels the need to do laundry on a cruise. I want to spend more time having fun, and it ends up taking way too much time out of your day. At least you got some great verandah and reading time

Nice you could work from home with the snow. We got dumped on yesterday and with my new job it was the first time in 3 yrs I've had to go out in the snow when I didn't want to. Oh well, this is our last one!

When we are in a condo, I love it as I can start it and just leave. Hotel room...not so much!

It did but...the day is still young, I've got at least 2 more updates just for the last day, and then the last morning so it's not over yet.

Isn't that the truth? He was dancing like that the other day and it just makes me grin. I really like the pirate pic. It's funny, dressed up pics like that with borders are not things I usually buy, more or less frame and have out but it is a fun picture and makes me smile when I see it.

Do I see you are going to Hawaii????? How did I miss that?

The funny thing is this was all me, no one would have noticed if I didn't do the laundry, I don't know what I was thinking! I say next time let Jim do the laundry.

I'm in the office today, I needed to ship and fax things so really had to come in anyway at least for a little bit. Plus there is so much wet icy snow that power is out in a lot of places (not us thankfully) and our internet went out. I may work from home tomorrow though. Poor Jeff is at a coffee shop! They keeps saying it's going to warm up but we've had light snow the entire day. I am spoiled though, I work 5 minutes from home so even going the long long way around to avoid hills..it's not bad.

AZ here you come!

I have been reading your thread and I have to say it sounds amazing!!!
My DH and I are going to Alaska on the Wonder in 129 days and cannot wait!!!
Everything looks so amazing and sounds like you had a great time
We have been on the Eastern Caribbean Cruise twice with Disney and are worried we will miss Castaway Cay. I am sure we will but sounds like we will have an awsome time on this cruise also.
Thank you for sharing your story and wonderful pictures.

Well it will be VERY different than Castaway Cay that's for sure! It really was an amazing trip, I hope you have as much fun as we did!

I HATE packing dirty clothes...we've been on cruises that have a laundry special about halfway thru the trip (I think HAL, maybe also RCL) and whatever you can fit inside the bag is a set fee to wash and dry. Does DCL also do this?

I always try to make sure that we are taking home at least some clean underwear - one trip from WDW for winter break a few years ago, our flight was canceled and we couldn't get a flight out for 2 days (kids were so sad they had to miss school!) and it really helped that we had some clean clothes to wear.

Nope, they don't. That would have been cool! I don't like packing them either, typically they get their own dedicated suitcase!

I agree with that and tend to overpack a little in that area...just in case!

There is nothing wrong with bed hair...I wake up with it every morning.

They both do look sleepy, and Evan certainly looks a lot younger in that picture.

Breakfast looks truly yummy. And, as always, your scenic pictures are spectacular.

I didn't notice it till I went to do the update and then it was like WOW, it looks like Evan 2 years ago...not now. Made me a little sad actually. He's still pretty cute in all his tween angst though.

I wake up with it every day too

It was a yummy breakfast and nice to eat outside. It was the only day we did breakfast outside, we did lunch a few times though but it was counter service by the pool.

Last day? How sad! Love all the shopping pictures! Did you tell us what you bought and I missed it or are you holding out on us? Too bad the laundry took so long, but you did get some cool photos from your verandah. So neat that you ran into Captain Mickey!

Actually, you are the first person who asked

And no, I didn't tell.

A bunch still to come on that last day, it was a long and full day!

It was fun seeing him. It's funny, both of my character pics are just chance on deck run ins, which made it so much more fun!
