I wrote this on thanksgiving, but I wanted to attach pictures….
OMGosh. What a crazy buzzy day yesterday.
We’ve made it on the boat. But the wind was blowing something fierce. So I wouldn’t let d go swimming. And boy was he cranky about that.
We managed to get the whole fry, how are going to feed Danny thing worked out.
We had a lovely fruit bowl waiting for us when we arrived along with a few other treasures. I told you Disney designated this a wish trip. Well, that’s important.
Last night after exploring the ship- the seas were bumpy so the kids crashed. Hugh and I went to dinner alone. The food is amazing btw!!!
Over my wild boar (and yes, last night in the princess dining room I ate boar) This lady introduced herself and gave me her card with her contact info. I have six different ways to get ahold of this lady. And instructions to have her arrange anything we may need.
The above the top Disney service just got better!!!
I’m sitting here watching the ocean out my deck looking for my rally cap and sneakers to do a quick run. Sunrise is just amazing.
The food is to die for. The service is spectacular. These folks never leave character. It is an amazing thing to experience.
Off to find my sneakers. I have 8 laps to do. Did I tell you I ate wild boar for dinner?!
OMGosh. What an amazing special morning. I ran the ship with the water all around. D is in the pool. Finally.
I just saw jack coming down the aqua duck. He’s made a new friend. Andy. Jack is my kid that can walk into any room of strangers and have a new BFF within 10 minutes. He doesn’t particularly enjoy the experience. Those first 10 minutes are tricky. But after. He’s the most like me that way.
I have been shopping with Kate and Jillian. D has been up and down the slide 2 dozen times and counting. He was not thrilled with the “you must go to the room, warm up and eat” thing we made him do. Jack is hanging with his new buddy Andy. I had the must lovely lunch. I ate my weight in crab legs and peel and eat shrimp. I got a couple of beers and found a quiet spot.
Cya flip side.
The Golden Mickys (tonight’s show) starts shortly. Jillian is taking the kids and I am hitting the grown up part of the boat for a beverage.
I spoke to wensday (the wish VIP helping lady) so when I was striking out with guest services about d’s cake on the island- she is working her magic. So- Danny’s birthday party is on the island. (I guess typically they frown on something like that.- but d has been designated a VIP. I tell you, being a VIP makes the service that is fantastic just over the top…)
I am off to pass off the kids. And go have happy hour. 😉
It’s after 10:00pm
I’m in for the night.
OMGosh. First off. D, jack, Kate and Jillian went to the golden Mickys show. I walked them down and then I walked away. Those four managed to find the front row on the right hand side to watch the show. I have to tell you, when I walked in at the beauty and the beast song and then saw my kids in the first row- I was the lady, standing by the door with tears streaming down my face. Danny made it through the entire show. Absolutely magical this boat is.
We saw Minnie Mouse and then had dinner. Poor d is just exhausted. And his color…but he’s going and going and going.
Hugh hung with d while I had dinner with the other two. Super fun I tell you. Jack and the waiter goofed around the entire meal.
I didn’t eat your traditional thanksgiving meal. I had venison and to die for sweet potato pie (I just love sweet potato pie…sigh)
Hugh and jack are out watching wreck it Ralph. Kate is hanging with Jillian. D is socked out. And I am sitting on the deck in pjs wrapped in a blanket with my pie and wine under your moon.
I think I may have been a mermaid in my last life.
Ok. I probably wasn’t anything as glamorous as that. I’m sure I was a scurvy sailor with a lady in every port.
I feel so at home on the water. Every time I get near it I start to breathe. It’s as if I hold my breath the rest of the time and only on the waves I get peace.
Oh, biggest news…wensday stopped by dinner. The pastry chef is making d a cake. She is going to follow us out on island day so she knows where we are planted. She will then deliver the cake when I request.
I have had the most magical 30 hours.
I’m off to finish my pie and have the waves rock me to sleep.
I have had to most amazing day. All of us did. My inner control freak has been stowed away. Once in a while she showed up today, but mostly she’s shoved under the bed with my suitcase. Tomorrow is an at sea day. The entire day spent rocking and surrounded by water. What could be better?!?!
