Love your updates!

Pirate Stitch is too cute!! And real or not.....it's always nice to see Cpt. Jack! When we met him on Castaway Cay, there were quite a few ladies in line without any children.

Sounds like another nice dinner! And the Toy Story musical sounds really cute. I love that you let Willow wear her jammies to the show. And how about those Princess sheets? How awesome is that?!? I bet Willow was over the moon excited with those.

YES!! I wanted to know much more about the Housewives....especially stuff from the reunion shows.

I may give in & try the Fifty Shades of Gray books. Yesterday, my friend Jana was telling me that they're really ok, that there is a story to them.

Definitely let me know what you think if you start Game of Thrones. Do you watch the show on HBO? It's fantastic!!

Him & Reid would get along fabulously!!! In fact, while I was spending the night at my friend's house last night scrapbooking.....him & Ed went out for dinner at IHOP.

Those are hilarious!!

I think I'm gonna start plotting my ADRs soon-just in case he agrees.
WOOT WOOT!!!

That's so exciting! I would definitely start plotting ADRs. You can never be too prepared for a possible Disney trip.

Fun update! Sounds like another great dinner. Poor Doulson wasn't sure about the Judies' martini plot huh?

Yay for a show in jammies!! Maddie is also pj obsessed. She pretty much changes into them as soon as she walks into the house.

Love the princess sheets! Mads has the exact same ones! Her pillow case is dark pink though.

How was the show? Did Willow love it?

I'm excited to hear about the cruise offers!

Your dinner looks good!

I love those princess sheets! What a sweet surprise.

Jammies are the best! Toy Story sounds cute. That is a favorite in our house.

Sounds like a fun day!

We don't get HBO so I haven't watched it yet. I m tempted to get it because Chad wants to watch it too.



Him & Reid would get along fabulously!!! In fact, while I was spending the night at my friend's house last night scrapbooking.....him & Ed went out for dinner at IHOP.

I think they would! I had to help at church yesterday so Chad told Anthony he would take him to IHOP. But Anthony said he couldn't go without me.

Exactly!! I want my vampires like the ones in True Blood!

Yes!

That's so exciting! I would definitely start plotting ADRs. You can never be too prepared for a possible Disney trip.

I cannot watch Titanic. That scene with the iceberg people and the door freaked me out. I don't think there's any other movie that freaks me out like that. And that was way before I ever thought of cruising!

Me, too!! Unfortunately, most of the times, the ones killed are the ones I like. I really do think I'm going to download the books soon to start reading them.

Sorry for the absence, folks! Things are very busy for the reasons I mentioned previously. I'm glad to see that some of you are hanging in there with me!

I will post an update tonight, but I want to try to catch up on some of YOUR TRs first. I am very close to done with this TR, and I hope you will all help me put together plans for our NEXT trip in a soon-to-be-named PTR!

31. Some Shopping and Some Walking (Day 6)

DD and I got up incredibly late today! I think it was about 9:00. The Judies were already up! I think vacation had finally settled in for us . . . and, of course, it was almost over.

Judy 2 was kind enough to run up to the Beach Blanket and get some breakfast for DD while I got ready. I then ran up to get my own breakfast, and then The Judies headed to Triton’s. Surprised????

We were in Ketchikan today. (It apparently rains almost every day of the year in Ketchikan, so it is not surprising that we actually saw rain today.) View from our verandah.




We did not have an excursion planned here, and, as I recall, the ship was not going to be docked here all that late. DD did have two friends at home who were turning five and having parties right after we got back (actually, the weekend after we got back - one of the friends only invited DD and delayed her party in order to have DD there. ), so this was our last chance to find some birthday presents in Alaska. DD, however, had no interest in going shopping, which was odd. She chose the Kids’ Club.

I waited in the stateroom for The Judies, and then Judy 2 and I headed off the ship. Judy 1 was going to find a nice spot to sit and knit. Judy 2 and I found one of the many touristy stores right near the ship and ducked inside out of the rain. We quickly got the same presents for all three girls (yes, I bought the same things for DD too - seemed like, after actually going to Alaska, she should probably have some souvenirs too ) - decorative pillows with the word “Alaska” and a different raised soft animal on it (moose, seal, and, hmm, maybe there was another moose - one pink and one blue), a necklace (one moose, one bear, and one whale), and a weird plastic squishy thing with sea animals floating in it.

Once Judy 2 and I had deposited the gifts back in the stateroom, we really felt like a walk and decided to head to the walkway on Deck 4. (Deck 4 has an outdoor walkway that goes all the way around the ship for those folks who like to jog at sea.) This was fantastic - 4 loops equaled a mile, and we wished that we had come down here every day. At the ends of the ship, the walkway goes inside briefly into some interesting areas. Some pics:




Some additional shots of our view:




After our mile, Judy 2 and I decided to go looking for Judy 1. We found some semi-Hidden Mickeys along the way.






(BTW, those first two actually count on the HM hunt in the book. )

And let me apologize for the lack of photos in this update and the reduced numbers in some of the updates to follow. By this point in the trip, I was starting to feel my usual sadness that the trip would soon be over, and that always results in me taking fewer pictures. I vow to do better next time!

Up next: 32. A Little Fish and a Brave Princess (Day 6)

Sounds like y'all had a really nice, relaxed day! Those are some neat pictures of ship - stuff you wouldn't think you would get to see on the ship.

I hate when it starts getting close to the end of a trip - you just can't help but to start getting sad.

But, I'm already looking forward to your new PTR!

Hope all is going well!

I am the worst! I totally get The Gloomies for a day or two before the trip ends. It's such a waste of a good time! I did realize, however, on this trip that one week just isn't long enough. It takes me at least 5 days to realize that I'm on vacation and loosen up.

When is your trip?????? Soon, right?

I am SO glad that I have the PTR to look forward to because it is going to be so sad to say good-bye to this TR. I sure hope y'all will join me in a PTR. And I hope YOU will write a TR!

That kids' club must have been amazing if a little girl chose it over shopping.

I'm the opposite at the end of a trip--I go into "must document EVERYTHING" mode. It's as though I think I'll really want 47 photos of a trash can to remember a vacation by.

That is hilarious!!! I am going to have to channel you on my next trip so that I don't end up with 5 pictures for the entire last day!
