Grand Turk Cruise Center

The perfect day. Our ship arrived  before 7AM and we were on the beach swimming in the crystal clear waters of Grand Turk before 8 AM. We could snorkel in our swim goggles too. We saw tons of awesome fish – even Kenzie could “scuba dive” as she called it with her goggles. She wore […]

Formal Dinner on the Cruise

The best part about a family vacation is the memories and we’re making lots on this adventure. Tomorrow we hit Grand Turk for our 1st day in the Caribbean. I can’t wait to see what the kids think of the clear water. We were skeptical about formal night on the cruise seeing we’d be bringing […]

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 […]

Day 1 on our Carnival Cruise

All went smoothly yesterday as we embarked on our 7 Day Carnival Cruise from Baltimore to the Eastern Caribbean. A big advantage to leaving from a port close to home was not having to deal with air travel before the cruise. We literally just drove right up to the ship and began to go through […]

Everything overlooks water and like many resorts, the spa is fabulous and the rooms are plush.  Here’s a peek at the outdoor area from […]

A Family Vacation at the Avalon Golden Inn

Video Tour below! What a trip. It’s been an exciting 3 days at the Jersey Shore connecting with bloggy friends and their families.  We’ve had a ton of boy power which is a change for our family with all girl cousins and only my Kyle on the boy’s team. 4 yr old Kenzie says she […]

Disney World Top 10

So we just wrapped up day 3 of our trip to Disney. Here’s my top ten list so far – top 5 great things and top 5 not-so-great things. Five Great Things 1) It’s Disney. The little ones truly think it’s all their favorite movies, books, and characters coming to life. It’s great to see […]

Final Countdown to Disney!

I profess I am probably more excited about our trip to Disney World than even my 3 year old daughter. And trust me she is beyond excited. For over a year now, every time she’d find a penny or lose an eyelash, she would make a wish that, “Someday we will visit Disney World.” I […]
