love the princess pictures, and I have to say I like Minnie Mouse the best! the detective game looks like a lot of fun and a good way to see different parts of the ship, I wouldn't mind trying it, although without a child with me, might look a little strange? Have a fun weekend, I remember dance and dress recitals with the makeup and hair and costumes and three nights of shows! Can't wait for next installment

I know when my DH has to miss things at DD's school b/c of his job, he feels kinda guilty about it even though he can't help it. So I bet that will make it easier to persuade him. And if all else fails, just send Claire in to do the begging for you. My DH can never tell her no, so that works like a charm around my house!

I wish it was that easy. It's all about money to him too. It's not that we can't afford it, it's that he likes to have power to say yes and no, and that he hates to part with the money...unless it's something he really wants.
Sometimes his "theories" are really wacky.

Have fun at the dance tonight. And at Cedar Point too...we were there about 14 years ago when the kids were much younger.
I'll probably post a little TR about it in my blog. When I do, I'll post a link here. I don't want to get in trouble talking too much about real life. LOL!

Lots of adults did it on their own. And some with kids were ripping the cards out of the kids hands. We had one of the pictures just around the corner form our room, so we could see people doing it a lot.

Now that I'm all caught up, I'm really impressed on how the princesses come down the staircase. It all looks so grand! I like your pictures better than the ships!

I could tell Claire had a great time meeting them all. And, Minne. Now that is a costume!

Have fun tonight, and tomorrow.

I'll know better what to expect after we sail in Oct. I think the perfect trip would probably be the 5 night double dip at CC and 4-5 nights at WDW.
I've noticed that the Magic and Wonder are cheaper too, but I really want to go on the Dream or Fantasy. They seem more kid friendly. I guess because of the Aquaduck. My only issue with cruising vs. the parks is that cruising DCL gets expensive FAST! The base price of the cruise isn't too terrible, but once you add in passports (over $400 for us this trip), airfare, a hotel room the night before departing, and the charge for transportation to and from the port (not free like going to the parks) it just really starts to snowball in price! Those 4 things added up are equal to what we are paying for the cruise itself!!! And that doesn't include any excursions! That is another big cost! I'm having to sit down and get serious with my plans and figure out what we can cut to make it more affordable. All those extra costs for cruising have really added up!
You can do more than just beach stuff at the ports. There are also so many picture taking opprotunities. I wish I had more time to do so in Nassau. (of course most of what I took is lost)
It is expensive. Thats for sure. We went without passports, but I really would like to get them if we sail again. I didn't have any problems, but I would feel safer.
I did a lot of research and budgeting too. I actually had a lot of moeny left over...I was surprised, but I wanted to be sure to have enough for what I wanted and any extras...and I didn;t get a whole lot of extras. I'm not a big drinker, so I only bought a few drinks while onboard, and that saved me. I mostly drank the free stuff.

It should be fun. This is the 1st time I'm gonna take an SLR there. I always have taken a P&S in the past, but I know I won;t be riding many of the big things this time (my body can't take it anymore) so I figure I'll shoot it this time and try to get some neat/different shots.
I'll write a TR up in my blog and then post the link here.

The costume was neat. I think Minnie really like it too, because she kept swirling!
Claire was so cute at dance tonight. Only one other girl wore her costume. All the other girls moms did't read or get the email to wear them.

I gotta get caught back up on yours yet too. But I think I'm gonna call it a night. I am copying some pictures to CD and I am getting to tired for that as well, so I guess the rest will have to wait.

I would like to do a Disney cruise, they look so good. Does DCL have a 7 day cruise? That would be right up my alley.

Jen I hear you about the money part, my DH has the same ideas as your DH. It can be so exasperating some time!

Hey there! Haven't seen you around in a while. Glad you are back. Seeing your post just reminded me that I still don't know why you used your trip insurance! Are you guys planning another cruise on DCL any time soon?

Yes they do have 7 days ones. The Fantasy, the new ship coming out next year, will be sailing the 7 night Carribean cruises. The Magic does now, but...Actually it just left for Europe, so I think right now there are no DCL Carribean cruises for the summer. And then Wonder is doing Alaskan cruises right now. Let me know if you really do want to sail, and I can help/hook you up.
