Project 52- Week 18

Welcome to my 18th week of Project 52, a little late but I still did it. Project 52 is a weekly wrap-up of our lives behind the blog.  A couple pictures showing you what goes on with us and the kids and the things we do.

Guess What…..Last week was busy. So busy in fact I was barely on the blog, twitter and facebook. So busy in fact I didn’t have time to put up Project 52 on Saturday like I usually do. The kids were on spring break, the weather was nice and Rob and I were working on the garden. Saturday we had a cub scouts event with Shaun. We got a tour and boating lesson on the Kalmar Nyckel, a replica 17th century merchant ship from Sweden. They got to learn knots, setting sail, blacksmithing and loading a canon.

I Disclose

One Week And Counting!!!!!

We have ONE week until we fly to Port Canaveral to board the Carnival Dream. Check out this link HERE, we are mentioned on Carnival’s website. I am excited about the pool, food and seeing water that is crystal blue. The kids and Melinda are also super excited and Saturday 8/21 can’t come soon enough.

Melinda and I are looking forward to the shows, pools and whirlpools and the kids are excited about the awesome waterslide and arcade. I also read that the Dream has an 18 hole miniature golf course that I am excited to take the kids to so we can play.

We will be doing an awesome shore excursion in Cozumel, Mexico that we are all looking forward to. I have never been on a cruise but from everything I am reading I am finding it hard to believe that we will have a bad time. Stay tuned for additional posts and pictures which we will be taking TONS of while on the cruise.

Two Weeks And Counting!!!!!!!

Not sure if everyone heard but Melinda and I are Carnival ambassadors which means we get to go on a cruise and talk about it which I am SUPER excited about. Carnival is known as the fun ship and is trying to get the word out that they also cater to family and kids. We are a family with three nutty kids so Carnival and my family is the perfect match.

In two weeks we are leaving for a 7 day Caribbean cruise which leaves out of Port Canaveral Florida and stops in Cozumel, Mexico, Isla Roatan, Belize and Costa Maya, Mexico. I have never been on a cruise and the furthest south I have ever been was Orlando, Florida. I think this is going to be a great experience for the kids and for Melinda and me. This will also be the first time that Shaun and Shae have ever flown which seems exciting and a little scary to me at the same time.

Needless to say the whole family is looking forward to August 21st as that is the day we fly to Florida and set sail on the Carnival Dream. Between now and then there is a lot of work to do like figuring out what to pack and what we are going to need for a 7 day cruise. I have seen so many lists that people have posted on cruise forums in regards to things that should be brought but it is hard because everyone has there own idea of what is important. So far I know we need Advil (mainly for me, LOL), swim suits and suntan lotion. I know we need cloths but need to figure out what cloths and how much cloths. I am sure Melinda already has a solid idea of what to bring but I am stressing but then again I stress about everything. Regardless of what we pack one thing is for sure all five of us are looking forward to cruising on the Carnival Dream!

Have you ever cruised? What do you feel are important items to bring?
