    I can't even remember when the last time I went through that queue. It had to be about 12 years ago at least.

    I just wanted to tell you how cutie patoutie Claire looks in her dance recital pics, I seen the rest on FB and it looks like she did a fine job!

    Kadence misses her dance class so much. I miss seeing her dance. Hopefully we can get her into a class this fall.

    Thanks. I am thinking of changing schools, but I think we'll stick this one out one more year. She is signed up for tap, but yesterday she said she may want to do ballet... I'm sorry, but ballet seems more broing to me. LOL!

    The ballet school we went to took off, with our money:mad: and the next closest one is really ex*****ve (the teacher was some big dancer in New York)
    Kadence liked ballet, but lately she wants to do more jazz/modern dance. The disney show "Shake it Up" is her favorite and she wants to dance like CC & Rocky!
    I don't know what to do. :confused3

    I really was enjoying taking pictures as we floated around.

    Now it’s been awhile since I have rode this ride…and I have only ridden it about 5 or 6 times in my life…so I can’t remember it all…but I was so wrong here. We got to the part where they tell us to go back, and the guy behind us is telling his kid “here it comes!” And I kept saying to Claire, “ I don’t think this is it. I think we have further to go”. I couldn’t have been more wrong. But luckily I did tuck my camera away before the big splash!

    Of course I soon realized this WAS it and I ducked way down and covered all my goods too…. Which of course exposed my backside! I got a little wet again back there. But Claire took all the Splash she could and LOVED it.

    I just read through your trip report and enjoyed it a lot. My family and I are looking into sailing with Carnival for 4 days to the Bahamas then a week at Disney but after looking at your trip report, will have to change to Disney. It just looks so perfect and the extra cost looks like it is worth it.

    Glad to share them. That drop doesn't bother me much and there's only that 1 big one, so I like that ride. I just don't like getting wet. There are some reides at our more local park I would ride if it weren't for the fact that you get drenched when you ride them. Same with Kali Rivers. Skip rode it once and came off completely dry, and took Claire on it then and they both came of without one bit a dry post on either of them. :rotfl:

    Thanks. I am really happy about it. I did bring up going on another cruise next year to Skip, but he did the lets wait thing. my Mom wants to go on one with us again now. She said she would like to do the 5 nighter in March or April. I told him and at first he was like "why would I want to travel with my inlaws?" :laughing: Then I told him that we could do all we wanted on our own and just meet at dinner, etc. And that Mom had said she would keep Claire some nights so we could have time alone....then it became a better idea to him :rolleyes1 But of course he won't commit any time soon.
    Mom even mentioned today when se was over that she would like to take my neice as well..."when we go" she said. :lovestruc I don't think my sister would let her go without them though. She is just 10 1/2 months older than Claire ,and Claire would love it, but I don't think my sister would like her going out of the country without one of them. Of course they could come too...but I might get annoyed with my sister after a few days. :headache: OOPs did I say that out loud. I'm just kidding...of course. And I'm sure the feeling is mutual.

    My parents and Sister went on Carnival in the past and did like it, but Disney is just sooo...Disney. :laughing: I really enjoyed that Disney atmosphere the whole time. The characters were so fun to have onboard...and of course the shows were great too. Made for a whole family to enjoy...or just adults too.

    I am so jealous! I really want to go back on that ship. She was just gorgeous and I have such fond memories of it.

    Great Splash Mountain photos; glad you got the camera covered. Claire looks thrilled getting all wet. And :woohoo: for only six weeks. We still have 80 days.
