This year is a big one for our family. Kendall and I both turned 30 within the last few weeks. This summer we will celebrate our 10 year anniversary, and then in July, Avrianna will turn 8 years old and she will get baptized. We decided that with it being such a year of milestones that we should do something awesome to celebrate. So we chose to take the entire family on this cruise. We planned for this for a year and were so excited to go. We drove down. Here is our first view of our ship, while we were still driving. :)
It also helped because we could only put 4 people in a room and we would have had to get two rooms and Kendall and I would have had to sleep in separate rooms. But instead, the boys slept in our room and the girls bunked in with my parents. Each of the kids had their own top bunk and they were thrilled!! Especially Rigdon who never gets to sleep on the top. :)
Talmage especially loved the orange life boats on the sides of the ship. He thought they were amazing.
The two older kids were big enough for the big slide, so we had some fun on that. Kendall got going so fast that he actually hit the stop at the bottom!! He also splashed a lady who was sunbathing on one of the decks as he came around one of the curves really fast. It was hilarious to watch her be completely confused why she was suddenly all wet.
The kids also LOVED the towel animals every night. They would race to the room so that they could be the first to see which animal we had. Here are some of the ones that we got pictures of before the kids had pulled them apart.
Getting ready to get off the ship and head home. It's always sad when vacation is over.
