WOOOOHOOOO!! 4 MORE DAYS & CRUISE'N

Most of you know that last fall I decided to take mom on a Cruise. Well the time is near. We have never been on a cruise and thought we ought to do it while we are still young. We are flying out of Casper Saturday morning to Houston and spending the night in Galveston and leaving on the VOYAGER OF THE SEAS Sunday at 5 pm. Going to Cozumel, Mexico and then on to George Town, Grand Cayman. We have booked a snorkeling trip to Stingray City. I have always wanted to go there since I got involved with SCUBA diving 12 years ago. Swiming with the rays has been my dream. Bummer that TV animal guy died with a ray spine in his heart, but notwithstanding, we will do it if I have to drag mom kicking and screaming into the water. Just kidding! After Grand Cayman island we go on to Montego Bay, Jamica for a day. Then back to Galveston, Texas on Sunday the 7th and fly home that day. Really looking forward to sun, warm air and food and relaxing time. It was 10 below zero yesterday morning here in Riverton and snow has been in our front yard since Halloween. I worked 14.5 hours Saturday at the airport snowplowing and 10 hours on Sunday. WE ARE READY!!

Sorry the picture is small. I don't know how to fix it. But you get the idea of Stingray City.

More of Stingray City. I can't wait to tickle their tummys. I will post some birthday pictures for Susie's birthday on Friday. I know it will be early but it will be hard to do on the Caribbean.
We are sorry to miss Kyle's 12th birthday on the 2nd. Sue's on the 3rd, and Sarah's on the 5th.
Not sorry enough to miss our trip though. Hahaha.

I'm so glad you guys are doing this. You deserve every warm, fun, relaxing moment of it! I'm glad you said "while we're still young". Cute. Have a great time. Can't wait to hear all about it and see some amazing pictures! Be careful with the stingrays.

Sounds fun hope you guys have a blast! Loved the "while we're still young" comment too. I expect to see some picks of you tickling the Stingrays.

I love the 'tickling the tummies' comment, it's like they are puppies. Haha. Seriously be careful though!

Matt said...

I too am glad you guys are going. You will have so much fun. Keep putting on that sun block!

I feel like we're not stressing the stingray safety enough. We all remember what happened to Steve Irwin.

I bought a disposable underwater camera today at Walmart (sorry Ems) for 11.76. Good for 50 feet with 27 exposures. Got to get me some pics of those stingrays. Thanks, Alex for the tiny concern about the rays. We will be fine. I'll take a bite out of their flippers if they make a move on me.
Woohooo! Leaving in the morning.

I know you guys are already there, but I just wanted to say how happy that you have this opportunity to have some fun. I spent a few days in Montego Bay, Jamaica in February a few years ago and it was so nice!!! Have a wonderful time and hope to hear all about it when you return.
