One slithering around on me? No way, Jose!
Me? Snarky? Nah!
Why on earth would I want my summer vacation to go away that quickly

The cruise sounds like so much fun and wow! My family would have been happy with that meal, as well!

(And now, I have Jimmy Buffett in my head, as well, making for a great Friday afternoon!)

I wonder wether the teens were more in their element there?
Well we have a full day and night and a morning still so not quite over!

I was interested to see how they did over there as well. Though mind you, Kendall was really fine at WDW, it was Taylor who whined and claimed he was only excited about Universal.

I need to get caught up on yours, I started but then work got in the way. But promise to when I get back!

I also agree those photos that the PP photographer took are wonderful! Too many slushies.. hmmm.. yep, AA would be the kiss of death for me too!
I only had one! But, it had been a long very full heat filled day and I think it caught up with me.

I can't wait to hear about your cruise!!!

SO excited! Melissa is there, Mary Ellen is in the air, then Jen. I'm on a red eye tonight and Tracy and Christine get in tomorrow. in just over 24 hours we'll all be together!

I have my boarding pass and you'll be happy to know, we ordered the ingredients for those lemon fizzes as part of our GG order...I just picked up the vodka. So you'll be with us in that sense. It's the last thing I have to pack. Or darn close to it lol.

Everyone looks incredibly relaxed and happy. And coming up with the pizza and the wine, not to mention surprising everyone with the ride itself...you seem to have a secret stash of Pixie dust somewhere.
Not sure about the secret stash (though that would be cool!) but things really did work out with a minimum amount of stress amazingly enough. It was just a great day.

It is magical at night. And....more so without kids to be honest. Not that I don't LOVE my kids (and inlaws lol) but it was really special, just the two of us.

Good question Tracy, I'm not sure how big that opening is and if there is a place for the chair. I don't recall it as being that big but I honestly have no idea. If you know the width you'd need I can peek at the Marina on our girls trip this weekend. Just let me know, I'd be happy to check! I bet the folks at the little marina office would know off the top of their heads but the boats are right there and I'll be right there so....

We had the whole thing to ourselves for about 30 min when we were there and she had so much fun on it. We never did get over to the island and I know she would love that too.
I'm behind on my linking but will clean stuff up for sure when we get back. How very cool you had the treehouse to yourself! She would love TSI, it was so much fun.

I'm glad that your camera battery died - not because I didn't want to see pictures (I agree, mine never turn out!), but because you got to truly enjoy yourself and that is worth a thousand pictures!
I was glad it died too! And, the early fiasco seemed fortuitous at the end, for sure.

You'll get our take on it for sure, and given we had so many ages, a lot of different viewpoints. Reading all the books is a good idea. So, honestly, is seeing all the movies. Only 3 of us had but it did really add to our experience compared to the others. I'm looking forward to talking about it finally! But..we still have a day and half before that starts however I'm hoping once I get back, to get back to some more timely updates. I'd like to finish this in time to do a cruise PTR after all.

It is TONIGHT! I'm on the red eye. Packed and ready to go, boarding pass printed! Just a lot of work to do first. real work though, not trip work lol. Hawaii was fabulous.

DING DING DING someone recognized it! I LOVE that song. I have a whole "beach music" playlist on my ipod that we listened to a LOT in Hawaii. I love that song.

Even though we didn't go on a boat, I figured it worked since we were sitting on our lanai looking at boats, listing to some Jimmy, and drinking rum and coke. Which counts as a boat drink in my book.

I agree, it's a fine song to have stuck in your head on a Friday afternoon.

Probably. I was struggling with the title for this one and while red wine, in my book, isn't truly a boat drink...it still worked and made me smile. Which is really what it's all about.

Jeff learned something new about me on our Hawaii trip. I know all the words to all of the songs on the 4 album set Bars, Boats, Beaches and Ballads. And those on the Beach Boys Endless Summer.

It was pretty funny. Or at least he thought so.

Your cruise sounds wonderful! every one just hanging out, enjoying munchies and a beautiful evening boat ride.

and I am so jealous of your date night with hubby. Our DD is far too young to be alone, even sleeping, for us to do this. sigh. some other time. but it sounds awesome!

Hi everyone! Hoping to do some catching up this weekend but just wanted to say HI! Back from our Flower and Garden girls trip, we had a blast and a LOT of laughs. And as Jennifer so aptly put it on FB...Happy HOURS.



I do like the one day back and work and then it's the weekend factor.
