Disney Cruise

I have been wanting to post about our Disney trip for quite some time, but with almost 1500 pictures to go through I thought I wouldn't be able to do it! I finally realized that there is absolutely NO way I could write about everything we did while we were on the cruise and at Disney World!!!

This trip was a dream for me, something that I had on my bucket list and thought would never even be possible! What could be better than doing Disney with my family, especially when the kids are at an age when they thought EVERYTHING was magical!

Here are some of the highlights of our cruise. Unfortunately, they are not in any type of order!

Ally's favorite thing was meeting the characters, which started the day we arrived on the boat! We stood in many lines and waited many hours (or what seemed like hours) to meet each and every one of them! Carter tolerated it for the most part, but I think his favorite part of the cruise was being in the ocean and going to the beach!

My favorite picture from the trip!!!
Carter dressed as a pirate for the Pirate Party!

Carter signed up to participate in the potato car races and LOVED it...and he almost won!

The "Pirates in the Caribbean" party was really neat. We missed part of it because the kids were exhausted that day!
Look who found Peter Pan while he was chasing Captain Hook!
We rented bikes at Castaway Cay and had a blast! It was one of the highlights for sure! Carter was so happy to get to ride a bike, and the island was BEAUTIFUL!!!
Dance party on Castaway Cay...
The characters changed outfits many times throughout the trip, and they even made appearances on the beach!

The big kids got to go jet skiing! It was my first time...and my last with Sam as the driver! The water was stunning, and we even got to "pet" a starfish the guide caught!

One of the stops was Atlantis in the Bahamas. It was an awesome place, although it was very chilly that day so no one wanted to swim.
The crew (minus Mom) arriving in Florida very early in the morning! We left College Station at 2:30 am!

Here we are all decked out for the safety drill!

There are a million more pictures that document how much fun we had, but I will stop here! The kids were great, and everyone else enjoyed their first cruise! I can't wait until we do it again!
