Hostage? We had a wonderful time! Mindy and Jim were fabulous hosts, ensuring we saw tons! We left NJ this am, and are now in the DC area gearing up for tourism here. Sadly, Ashleigh woke up this am throwing up and felt like crap all day. She was in bed and asleep by 9 tonight. I'm so hoping she wakes up all better, hungry, and ready to go!

Min...gonna mention what you did this weekend?

HMMMMMM - - What could she be talking about? Well, I went to see Ellis Island, Point Pleasant at the shore and play tourist in NYC...is that what you mean???? Ah probably not???

Or do you mean....the impulse purchase I made???? YES IMPULSE!!! My DH and I are now joining Kim and Sean on their adults only cruise next month...spent I don't know how many thousands of $$$ in matter of minutes...so unlike me...don't know what came over me...doesn't matter if I get buyer's remorse...THERE'S NO STINKIN' REFUND

We will be sailing on a 4 day on the Dream in September...I booked the cruise, airfare, airfare for my mother from FL to watch the kids, and a hotel in WDW all on the car ride home from NYC...It's my first time vacationing without my kids I'll cry about it when I pay the bills...which should come and have to be paid right before I leave

Has anyone done the bike tours in Barcelona? Was thinking about doing it in the late afternoon on the day we arrive to try to stay awake after going to see La Sagrada Familia. Our plan for Friday will be to tour Camp Nou (Barcelona FC facility - DS is obsessive soccer player) and the Picasso Museum. Has anyone done Spheremania? We had some friends find that as an activity as well....

Hahahaha! Just realized that I was on my own thread! After all the saved posts, what I said/posted should be fairly early as we did it precruise in 2010.

Does your son play soccer? A group of them will spend the majority of their at sea days on the top deck playing soccer or dodgeball.

Just back from out East Coast vacation! So far I've done the laundry, washed the dog and then all that stuff that got dirty in the process, cleaned the kitchen, and have just sat down to poke around on the boards a bit before starting to edit some pics!

It was interesting...normally, we have zero issues with a 3- hour time change, but this time around, we did. All of us were sleeping in past 8, and feeling like we were still tired. Of course, it could be that we had no need to be up and at it early those first few days, or, we could chalk it up to the heat and humidity. Either way, it'll be interesting to see if I experience the same phenomenon during next month's WDW trip.

The verdict with the camera bag: Sean says it's a keeper. He didn't complain once about carrying it the whole trip. I still prefer my sling, as I ended up doing a day of tourism in DC just Ashleigh and I, and as I am soooooo short-waisted, it got a little uncomfortable by the end of the day. This, however, wouldn't happen often, and if I could foresee girl-only travel, I'd just switch bags.

Still haven't bought my airfare. Dad just had a knee repair done, and I want to see how he does with PT before I broach that subject. He says that he's feeling ok...says the muscles surrounding the knee are sore, but the pain of pre-surgery is gone. That's a good thing!

Anybody else done any planning?
