Hello everyone! The goof troops are at it again, and this time we have a new addition. The new addition is my niece and this will be her first cruise. Now for the introductions: I am Toria here on the boards. I exercise and sleep by day and x-ray and Cat Scan by night. This will be my 5th cruise on the Dream and I am just as excited as the first time. Next up is DH, he is my military man. He is a fun loving clown at heart. He can make people laugh with his antics and be down right serious the next (with the kids). Next up is DS, he is my new teenager and I miss him being my baby. They all have to grow up. He loves to play any gaming system he gets his hands on. He is a clown as well he will pick up where his dad leaves off. My DD is next, this is my Oh so serious one. The CM's called her Sugar Rush from Wreck It Ralph because of the all the different colored beads in her hair during our last December cruise. Crush in AP was also intrigued by her hair during dinner, she got to interact with him and that was great. She talks faster than a jet taking off ( what did you say). She is a reserved child that takes in her surroundings before she opens up. She gets that from me ( gotta make sure you're not crazy, lol). This trip is a surprise for them and partly because my daughter will start the how many day thing everyday. My Disney niece will be joining us and I can not wait to watch her experience her first cruise. I don't get to see her that often because she lives in a different state. I do hope she loves it and does not get motion sickness. That was the who and now the why: DH and I took a trip on the Dream back in June, so now it is the kids turn for some fun. Besides that their summer was spent in school. My DD was in the 3rd grade at the time and they offered free summer enrichment courses, so we took it. No idle mind here let's keep those skills in use. DS had summer because of poor choices that he decided to make and I will leave it at that. He pulled it together and finished with a 92% in math. So this trip is mostly for them.We took DH out for his bday and it came out that we are going on a cruise next month. They were more than excited to find out that they would have a connecting room. Now for the when: October 20th on the Dream I am looking forward to the Halloween festivities and now I can pick out a costume with DD. Our vacation will start on the 19th at approximately 4am for me. I want to be on I-10 @ 5:30 am. DH is notorious for making Wal-Mart runs before we hit the highway. The past 4 trips down with him has included a stop. It drives me crazy when he has had the day before to take care of those odds and ends. We will be spending the night at the military resort across the street from the Poly called The Shades of Green. The theming of this resort is that of a lodge. We plan on going to Sea World that day since we get in free,then to DTD to shop and eat at Earl of Sandwich.
