DH is retired military too- we're in 7502 just in case you decide to do a 'salty' get together....

Cold front moving into most of the mid-west & south this week - I hope it misses Florida !

Ditto. I can't concentrate on anything else either. Last night my DH came home from work tired but finished packing his suitcase because he's so excited. lol! Since we're surprising DD for her birthday, the packing and hiding and packing and then hiding again is becoming a real pain. ;p

Military Get Together

I would love to do that - have always said I would and never did - 13 years in the AF for me ....how about the last sea day...at a time to be determined.

I am working on my FE gifts right now...

Might be a good idea. The only thing planned that night is the Til We Meet Again Party, and packing

My last

Disney Cruise was the first time that I went to the Till We Meet Again in the Atrium. It was very hot but if you want pictures they were available. My packing will be done first thing in the morning on the last day so that I don't have to deal with it

I know there may mostly be mom's reading this post but I am looking for something special for my bride on Sunday, May 12. Does anyone know if there will be anything on the ship to honor mom's or any ideas to make it awesome?

Thanks,
Tim

Hi Jim-

DH is retired Navy after 28 years in, and is now on his second career. It took a while to convince him that civilian cruising was NOTHING like Navy cruising..

How

about brunch or dinner at Palo! We are having brunch there because I love dinner in the MDR. You can also pre order flowers and such through their on board services but you have do that a number of days out.
