Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Cruise–Day 2

Our second day on the ship was a sea day.  Nothing but water for miles and miles.  After looking through our pictures when we got home, I realized we didn’t take many photos that day.  I just got a few from our formal dinner that night.

Of all activities aboard the ship, dinner has to be our favorite.  The service is exceptional and the food…….delicious!  We I love getting all decked out for formal night.  As a stay-at-home-mom I don’t get many opportunities to get all dressed up, so this is always fun for me.  I actually bought my “fancy” dress over a year ago to wear on the “cruise that wasn’t.”  Remember, the one that someone ruined by having a kidney stone?  Yeah, that was me.

Anyway, here’s what we looked like with our hair slicked down.

Let me start off by revealing the Tool Man’s fashion faux pas.  You see, he sort of forgot to pack his black dress shoes.  So he had to wear brown shoes with his black suit.  Eeeek!  “Uncle Peter, my smelling salts!” (That’s another Gone with the Wind line in case you didn’t know.)

In the dining room.  Don’t you just love self-portraits taken at arms length?  Thank goodness for those Go-Go-Gadget arms of mine!

The Tool Man’s lobster…or what was left of it.  I can’t believe we forgot to take before pictures.  Sorry!

Another boyfriend for me!  Again, not 100% sure of his species.  Maybe a dog?

I had intended on wearing my hair up for dinner, but I got this crazy “strappy” sunburn that day, and I tried to cover it up as much as possible with my hair.  I was looking like a candy cane.

O.K.  For all you iPhone people out there, have you tried Facetime?  Super cool and FREE!  It’s basically video phone.  I got to see and talk to my monkeys while we were gone.  Lucy was a little confused by this, but Ty really enjoyed using it.  I think mom enjoyed it the most though.

Yesterday I told you we always take an S.O.S. picture on the ship.  Well, here’s another one I always take - a pull on the slots.  I think I started this just to mess with my grandmother.  I’m terrible, aren’t I?  And just so no one starts gossiping, I didn’t really play it.

Stuck on a ship for five whole days with…this!  You feel sorry for me, don’t you?

Indulge me while I share our goofy photos with you.  These remind me of the kind of pictures you’d take in a photo booth at the mall.

  1. Love those "at sea" days! I could tell you had a bit too much sun there, but you both do "clean up" well!

    Can't wait for the next days' update!
