Forced Family Fun in '15
Heck, we were doing good just to get a group photo with all those wiggle worms wanting to go into the dining room to eat dinner.
We had extremely high winds for the first three days at sea, making Amy and Jason a tad uncomfortable (understatement). They were very happy to finally disembark in Aruba for the day. The next day (Christmas Eve), we were in Bonaire, where all the kids again hit the beach. MM and I just did a town walkabout, and then went back to the ship. We had never been to Bonaire before, but it was just another small island…and we have seen plenty of those in our travels.
Grand Turk on Christmas Day was beautiful:
Saturday was our final sea day en route back to Pt. Canaveral, and the winds had thankfully died down… no hence no more queasy tummies.
I only did the “Social” package while onboard, so I only had Facebook—no emails or (otherwise) Internet. I was pretty busy with the kids—we played lots of games in our (large) room, went to trivia a few times, laughed, had afternoon tea, laughed, ate, read, and played some more games. It was a whole lot of FUN. The “no Internet” was a test—and I didn’t like it, so I won’t do that again when away for that length of time. End of test!
Jason and I both had birthdays while onboard, so it was nice for all of us to celebrate together. I will post more photos another day.
Two kitties were mighty happy to have us back at the Moho, and we were glad to see them. They behaved while we were away…as far as we know.
All in all, it was a successful FFF trip…well, except for the bit of seasickness. If we cruise as a group again, we will have to have fewer sea days. Check. We can do that.
Spending time with our family and making memories—that’s what is important...to us.
Life is very good, y’all!
