Ready for vacation!

Since the day we told the kids that we were going to be taking a cruise for our family vacation this year they were counting down the days until we set sail.  They were even more excited when I told them Bumpa would be making the journey with us.  After a late flight into Florida and getting to the hotel just after midnight we all were exhausted!  They were troopers though!

We all were fast asleep as soon as our heads hit the pillow and everyone slept past 8am...a miracle in itself!  Then it was time to get showered, dressed and to the curb to wait for the shuttle to bring us to the port.  As you can see in the picture below, we had a whole range of emotions...excitement, happiness, are they here yet, come on and get this over with!

So excited to be on the ship!

Schooling Bumpa on how to play mini golf before we set sail.

Good bye land...hello open water! 

Ready to check out the room!

We've been FLOCKED!

Nine years ago this summer there was so much uncertainty, would Ben make it through his treatments?  Would I be able to carry all four babi...
