Love the photos of you all enjoying the beach and the sea. Can't wait to read more (by the way, less than 3 months till my cruise - any chance you might have finished by then)
YES! I will for sure have this finished by then! In fact, I will be posting a lot more from now on. Swim team was EVERY single day and now that it's done, I don't know what to do with myself!!!!!

Love your curtains!!! Do they turn that color AFTER dessert?????

Great update - love the picture of Ally in front of the ships. Glad you had some entertainment during your meal - too bad they didn't start singing

So funny, the VonTrapp family, i loved the video. Those kind of people bring me down. I feel like a frump next to them. Ah well it's more fun to get down & dirty.

I noticed the 0730 after your user name on You Tube, that's my birthday!

I was at Jeff's comment in the Von Trapp video! I'm always irritated by people like that - probably because before I had children I had aspirations of being "that" family - then I woke up.

Great pics in Phillipsburg - so those nice chairs are there and the beach is free? Not too bad! Not to mention the abundance of food and drink right there! I think most of that murkiness in the water looks like sand washing up in the surf maybe?

Oh Tammie, there are so many things I thought I would be or not be. You know that child throwing the tantrum at the entrance of the grocery store? I swore "MY child will never do that...." and then I remember when Ally turned 3 she became "that child." But it seems that I turned into all the things I swore I never would, and yet I never became the person I swore I would.... hmmmm, how does that happen????

Nice wide beach, not crowded at all (but I think only 3 or 4 ships in port this day.....), free, and lots to do right there. Murkiness was definitely not good. But after the Von Trapps I couldn't stand a perfect beach anyway!!!!

Awesome post! Those pics of the beach have me dreaming! Only 7 months until we're there! We're debating excursions right now. I'm leaning toward the Orient Beach party with lunch included. We're traveling with my parents and dear sweet papa is not so flexible.

If i tell him there's food included, it keeps the bear happy. But I do want to hit the shops to get that yummy guavaberry rum!

Love the Von Trapps! It makes you wonder if mom is running around behind them all the time with a lint roller and a swiffer duster to capture any mess?

We'd be the table too where DS is belching and DH is doing the belly scratch while examining his belly button lint!

Needless to say we don't get dressed up very often!

Glad you're back! Keep 'em coming!

Let's just say I saw The Beatles in concert when I was slip of a teen. So that puts me as having that birthdate first! I used to be able to claim 29 & be believable! That ship has done sailed!

That is too funny! I thought about them maybe doing like a "flashmob" like in the videos where they just start dancing in the middle of a public place.
