Family Cruise '10: Life on Deck

Most vacationers fall into two categories: Cruisers or Non-Cruisers. We are cruise people. The chance to see at least 3 exciting locations, all meals included, and something to do at anytime of day are some of the reasons I enjoy cruises. Spending time with our family (our favorite people in the world) and sharing in these experiences is PARAMOUNT.

This cruise was truly something special. We were joined by nearly ALL of the VanWaggoner's. In total, the boat was occupied by 42 of us. Everywhere we went we saw a familiar face. It. Was. A. BLAST!

Here are some of pics I took aboard the ship:

One of the highlights (and there were MANY) was a testimony meeting we had on Easter Sunday. We reserved a quiet area (albeit a bit distracting since it overlooked the deck, which actually served as an interesting object lesson on being in the world, but not OF the world) to bare our testimonies with one another. A VERY touching and spirit filled experience.

Much time was spent lounging and listing to the guys play music. It's nice to be able to use the phrase, "I'm with the band."

Getting all gussied up is a treat for me. Something about wearing a dress or skirt made each dinner feel like a special night on the town, only the town was very small.
