Cruise 2010!!!

A few weeks ago, we went on a cruise with our friends the Ashby's, Curry's, and Johnson's. We left all of our kiddos with grandparents, crammed into our Pilot, and headed to San Diego. We had a blast!

There was so much to do on the ship. On the second day, Kimmy and I were able to fight our way up to the stage to play Family Fued. I kinda felt like a movie star! My question was "Name something you use only once." The guy buzzed in first and said, "Condom." His answer was no good, so I tried to steal with "Tampon". My answer wasn't on there either, but got a good laugh. The girls team ended up winning the whole game and Kimmy and I took home trophys.

On the third day we stopped in Ensenada. There wasn't much to do there, but we had fun eating, shopping, and goofing around.

I really wanted to buy the girls some mexican dresses, but Marcus convinced me that they would never wear them, and I realized he was right. I settled for Dora and Belle mask /capes. They were kinda creepy, but I knew they would like them. When I brought them home, Bailey wore hers all day even though she could barely see or breathe in it.

After Mexico we went swimming and watched the Cardinals' game. Mari bought us all matching tank tops. It was a fun filled afternoon!

The highlight of the night was kareoke. We went two nights in a row because it was extremely entertaining. The first night, Marcus and I sang summer nights from Grease. We messed up a lot, but it was really fun. Mari, Kimmie, and Melissa sang as well. I never knew that I had friends with so much talent for singing! The second night, we just watched people sing. A lady got up and danced to "Baby Got Back". It was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen. We were crying by the time the song was over.
