We also flew into Long Beach. Staying at Hyatt at the Pike. We are going to head out in the morning and look for wine, etc. I can't believe it's less than 12 hours to get on the Wonder. Sherry

Hope everyone has made it here safe. Once again it's 3:00 in the morning and I'm going over my to do list. I'm so jealous of those of you that have already begun your vacation. I'm gathering paperwork (passports, rental car and hotel confirmations for Miami and Key West and printing FE list) finishing FE gifts, and my dining room table is filling up with things I still need to pack. We have soccer early tomorrow morning and then back home in the afternoon to organize the house, clean out the refrigerator and finish packing. Who can I talk to about adding another 3 hours to the day? Until then, looks like I'll be pulling another all nighter. Sleep is so over rated. See ya all soon.

I can't imagine being so close that you can go to a soccer game before heading out on vacation - I am so jealous. I bet the girls are so excited. I've been trying to keep Brenna busy this weekend to keep her mind off what could have been - she has been very quiet this week and very teary eyed. I know she is so disappointed that we couldn't make the trip. We are looking at the Sept PC cruise, but it just won't be the same.

I hope you guys have a fantastic trip - we will be counting the days til you return and can tell us all about it. Safe travels!

Another one who couldn't sleep at 3 am! I survive yesterday's madness and I can't imagine doing all you have to do on the same day the ship leaves! We still have to finish packing but that's about it. Thank goodness for your post too - I completely forgot about printing our the FE list until I read your post!

HELP!!


Last minute question... Where dinI get the DCL shuttle to the port? I just checked my docs and it says that they will be at my luggage pickup. Since I'm not arriving on a plane but coming in from across the street, can I just go to any luggage area? I know where to go in Orlando, but it just occurred to me that I'm NOT in Florida. maybe I should pay a bit more attention to where I am??? :-)

Liquor walk

Does it count for my 26.2 miles that we got up early and walked over a mile to the Rite Aid in downtown Long Beach to buy some liquor to start out our cruise? So surprised we could buy liquor at 7:30 on a Sunday morning.

On a very off subject note, all of my kids went to Texas A and M. Our Johnny Football won the Heisman! Only our second Heisman from their college. So excited!

See you soon. Sherry

We are on our Primetime van heading to the port. After 3 days at the park my feet are sore! We bought enough rum and wine to share so just come by our room
We are excited! I can't wait for lunch.
we do plan to do spa tour, but will be at meet and greet. I need to win a massage or pedicure.
