We're back!

I feel so out of it right now, i'm still trying to get back to reality. We've been home since late Saturday night but i'm still out of sorts. I just got my land legs back today. We had a great trip. DIsney puts on an amazing cruise. So much to do and see, the kids absolutley loved it - it was hard work for mom and dad - but worth it when you see the looks on your kids faces. Like they say - it was truley 'Magical'. I did find out that i am absolutley PETRIFIED of the Ocean - or maybe it was just the ship moving on the ocean. Had a few panic attacks - and don't think i will be cruising anytime soon - but all in all - it was FABULOUS!
This was the day before Halloween - thats when they celebrated on the ship. The kids got to trick-or-treat on the boat.
This is a view of the ship from Castaway Island (the disney Island) - it was so beautiful there - our best days were there (we got to visit twice). The boys actually got to get in and interact with the dolphins. They thought it was so great - i thought they might be a little scared (ecspecially after i freaked out and wouldnt get in) but they did so good - thanks to the Gary and Casey - i was proud of them.


Dean, Baylee and I in Cosmel right before we went in to do the dolphin thing.


Do you beleive my boys actually held these things. Mason did it first so Ethan got up the courage - it was so funny. I had to pay 10.00 to take these pictures - totally worth it though.





Baylee with Snow White - she was in aww of the princesses. She asked where they were every night before she went to bed. She loved them. Us on top of the ship before we left the port.
Now back to reality - i'm going scrapooking this weekend - so i need to get my stuff together - have to be prepared so i can get something accomplished. It will be a nice vacation (by myself) after a LONG vacation with the kiddos!

Hey!!! What cute pictures!!! I love the Dorothy costume!! That cruise looks like so much fun, that is awesome that you all were able to go!! Random question though, a while ago one of your friends who has a boy with CF ( I think her name was Carly or Carie) wrote on my blog. She left her email address and I wrote her but I never heard back. I wanted to see if I could look at her blog and see her little boy!!! Anyway if you have her info can you send it to me??? Thanks!!!!
