Day 2 On Deck of the Carnival Pride

Isn’t my sailor boy too cute?

The kids loved taking a dip in the pool – did you know the pools on board are actually saltwater?

And Kyle is striking a pose in his swimmies in this one!

And formal night was so much fun! I have tons of cute pics of our evening out with the kids all decked out. Including some stellar shots of my kids with Audrey’s boys.  Crushed I can’t post video – I know it is not the same to share video after the fact vs. real time but the connection is so slow and costs about a million dollars a minute – so it goes.

Here’s a sweet shot of Kenzie and I.

There is no shortage of food on a cruise. Before yesterday, I’ve never seen so many people eating ice cream cones at 9 AM.

And room service is free too and offered 24 hours daily!

But our internet research told us that the real food you can’t miss is Carnival’s classic dessert – a chocolate molten cake with ice cream served in the main dining room for dinner.  We agree. Totally divine!
