Yes by all means you gotta' have gin, preferably Tangeray, Beefeaters isn't bad either. Really good vodka is Skull, a cheaper vodka that is good is Svedka.

My, that went suddenly from waterslide craziness to booze! Sounds about right for a DIS MOM TR!

My vote is for amaretto -for sours, or Kahlua for your coffee !

Love the waterslide and ITSK pic!

Hey Kate-
This is all great advice, and I completely agree on the Gin- I love Tangueray and Hendricks- and it sounds like the ones you already have are fine, none of them are what I would call bottom shelf. Just one thing- have you asked them what they drink? I would hate for you to go out and spend all kinds of $$ on booze that will just sit there. When we are having a party with our friends, I usually have made one specialty cocktail (like Cucumber margaritas with some jalepeno slices in case they want to spice it up or Grapetinis or Sangria), but then I know what my friends will like already and this just simplifies things. I do have the other things available, I make sure to have tonic and sliced limes, but honestly, except for the occasional scotch or bourbon, the rest just sits and people have beer & wine & the special cocktail. We normally are more wine drinkers than anything else, too, FWIW. Anyway, it sounds like this is going to be a great get together- how many are you having?

Can't wait to read more!
I just looked at all your DL pics and your TR- Lilly is beautiful! What a happy girl!

So sorry you are not able to Skype- I hope you get another morale call soon!

All caught up again!

Love the slide pics!!!!!!!! And the pics with the "Captain".

We only had CC as the last day once I think, but you are so right about it. Knowing that the cruise is over that day is no fun at all.

I only did the dark tube slide on CC - it was fast, but fun! I'll have to try the slow one next time, glad Kara could get in some DIS time as she came down that one.

See you next month!

I have a question for you- have you been on a double dip? Did they do anything different on the 2nd visit to CC, or was it like Groundhog Day?

Yes! Most of us do! Kara, myself and Drea (a new DISmom who will need to survive the grueling initiation ritual first- Good LUCK!) will be arriving May 2nd- Joan will already be there, but with her (our) DH (I am his Wife #2, and NO there is no Big Love HERE), and Lonnie and Laura will be joining in on May 3.

Yes, have been on a double dip and NO, they did not do anything different. It was like Groundhog Day - in a REALLY good way.
But honestly, it was the same time off the ship and the same time back on. Same bbq and all. We even were in the same Cabana.

Great! I am wondering what they will do about Palo brunch- there is no sea day on this cruise, it's a 4 day with Nassau & a doubledip.

Warmed up...worn out...

We are going with couples, no kids so 2 days at Serenity Bay sounds really, REALLY great- hopefully they'll have enough fish for both days!

I'm mentally not there yet- more focused on the cruise with Timmy in 2 weeks. Have you seen all the cool food booths? That F&G really needed them- I have always wondered why they didn't do that before....

Once back on the ship, we all hit the showers and put on our prettiest dresses for formal night. But FIRST, before I go any further, Joanie would like me to share HER special moment with Captain Jack -





On our way out the door, I took some pics of Kara's door magnets-





On our way, Mickey ran down the stairs to beg us to become his stowaways, but of course, we all had our children to get home to. Sorry Mickey!



Joan, Kara and I were looking forward to the show tonight, Disney's Believe. Cammie chose not to come, she said the shows were not her cup of tea. But the three of us LOVED this show!!! It turned Kara and I into blubbering IDIOTS and provided fits of giggles (due to our Hallmark commercial grade sobbing) for Joanie.



Afterwards, and before dinner, well...there really was only ONE place to go...PINK! We had to visit Alenka. Plus, we HAD to have some Moet Ice...

Joanie looked especially sexy on this night!



In an effort to keep up with that sexiness, we all decided to strike a pose-



Some are sexier than others....



All our loveliness...



I hope Alenka is on the ship when I board in 18 days. She was a sweetheart....AND she is responsible for all of us becoming Moet Ice fans, so that makes her extra special! It was time for dessert before dinner again....



And then we were off to dinner at the Royal Palace. Gotta love a fancy restaurant on your fancy dress up night where even the napkins make an effort to look extra special-



And who doesn't want one of these? How much are they again? CHA CHING!



I had •Pomegranate Glazed Duck Breast With Gewürztraminer Gelée and Pomegranate Glaze



Other apps on our table were •Iced Lobster and Jumbo Shrimp
White and Green Asparagus, Micro Greens and Lemon-dill dressing with Horseradish Cream



•Escargots Gratinés
Herb-marinated Snails with Finely Chopped Mushrooms, topped with Garlic Butter and Breadstick



•Belle's French Onion Soup
With Gruyère Cheese Crouton



•Avocado-Citrus Salad
With Iceberg and Radicchio Leaves and an Orange Vinaigrette



•The Comtesse Du Barry's Soup
Rich Velvety Cauliflower Cream, topped with Salmon Caviar Croutons



WOW! Looks like we were getting our money's worth that night, LOL! Cont'd next post-
