Our Day At Sea

So it was 9:00a.m. and we were all starting to move about in the stateroom. Anthony was very happy. He is asking us if we were “really happy” with his big smiley face. Of course we are happy…so off we go to breakfast to the Beach Blanket Buffet. They had a wide range of breakfast foods such as chocolate Mickey waffles, omelet station, Krispy Kreme donuts (yummy!) and homemade cinnamon rolls (goooooey!). We grabbed a table by the window to watch the horizon go up and down. We looked for fish, dolphins, and of course sharks. We saw no “Bruceys” or “Mr. Rays” or flippers. We saw nothing. Bummer…so on we go to Deck 9 to visit with Captain Hook. Yes Captain Hook was out and about today. There I (Jenn) signed up to get my hair partially braided. I received a 3:00p.m. Well we have Day at Sea today so Anthony and I headed into the Mickey Pool. He absolutely threw himself in and out of the pool with no flotation devices. He was doing so well. He was swimming with his face in the water like a little fish. There was a very nice breeze on the Deck near the pool. By the Mickey Pool we have Pluto’s Dog House where they serve Bratwurst, Chicken Tenders, Tomato Salad, Hot Dog, Cheeseburgers, Hamburgers, and other grilled food. They also have Goofy’s Gallery where they serve wraps and an arrangement of fresh fruit. Next to Goofy’s Gallery is self-served “soft served” ice cream…YUMMY! I have only hit it up once. I know…you are surprised but that is the truth. They have two bars and several servers walking around all day with drinks. Outside by the pools they also have a fountain beverage station. Like I said, Anthony and I hung out there until 12:30p.m. then it was off to get ready for “Toy Story” the broadway musical. The show was at 1:30p.m. but they suggest getting there 30 minutes in advanced. Good advice. We were there by 12:45p.m. We got great seats and waited 30 minutes before the show started. While Ed waited in the seats, Anthony and I went down to the Lobby to dance with Stitch, Goofy, Donald and Daisy Duck, Chip and Dale, and Mickey and Minnie Mouse. We danced the “Cha Cha” Slide, Hoedown Throwdown, the shuffle, and other really cool dances. In fact, Anthony and I were at the Studio Sea dancing last night to the same songs. My little man can get down. He dances well and loves to dance. The characters just walk around and the kids just dance right alongside them. Anthony didn’t know what to think. So now it’s 1:15p.m. and off to the show we went. Anthony got a Buzz Lightyear light up straw with his sprite and the show began. My goodness…it was amazing. They included every character they could. No one was left behind for sure. Another fabulous show that Anthony did not budge out of his seat. The show lasted about an hour. Out of the show and onward to the Flounder Nursery Reef where Anthony will get to play with friends his own size. Mom was getting her hair done and dad was doing his thing. Anthony enjoyed some time away from mom and dad for about an hour. Don’t worry…he didn’t even want us to pick him up. If it weren’t for pictures with Chip and Dale we would have left him there. Up to Deck 7 for a quick shower and out to see Chip and Dale. Chip and Dale were in their tuxedos tonight. They looked handsome. Goofy, Mickey and Minnie Mouse were all dressed formal tonight. Pictures and flashes were lighting up the Lobby floors. Another red carpet experience…we met up with the family from Canada and off to dinner at Parrot Cay. It was tropical night tonight. Yummy! Ahi Tuna, Romaine Salad, and an Island Style Grilled Rib Eye. To top it off, Lemon Meringue Pie, Crème Brulee Cheesecake, and Chocolate Smores Cake. Dinner was amazing as usual. More magic tricks and lots of laughter. The boys keep us all going. Now it is 10:26p.m. and everyone but me is asleep. This is the second night that Anthony has been sleeping ALL by himself in his own BIG BOY BED!! YEAH! Dad is snoring and I am blogging. My hope tonight is to upload pictures; however, if I can’t pictures will soon come. I PROMISE! Off to Bahamas tomorrow. We are swimming with the Sea Lions in Atlantis. Cross your finger and hope that I can get connected tomorrow night as we sail to Castaway Cay. Blog with you soon!
