Off we go on our cruise! We will leave our house at 11am & grab lunch on the way. Hopefully the kiddos will eat, watch a movie and crash for the 2 1/2 hour drive to he airport! We will meet our babysitter near the airport around 2pm, head to park the cars and then we are off on our non-stop flight to Tampa where we will spend the night and rise and shine-eat and head to the Port of Tampa to board the Carnival Inspiration for our 5 day Western Caribbean Cruise!! We will stop in Grand Cayman on Monday (Wyatt's 3rd b-day) and at Cozumel, Mexico on Tuesday-I can't wait-I've been running around like a WILD NUT trying to "get it all together."

I have been packing for several days! It is A LOT to organize! We've got every medicine known to mankind "just in case" for our boatload of kids!

In case you are wondering how much luggage we are taking-Here goes

1 diaper bag
3 kid backpacks-filled with "stuff to do"
2 large suitcases (1 boy-1 girl as the boys and girls including Nick and I will be separated in different cabins-romantic huh?)
3 medium size suitcases for the 3 adults
1 small kid suitcase
2 oversized purses
1 large carry on with blankies for the 4 littles

It has FINALLY been chilly here. I almost hated to leave when the weather has been so beautiful here the last week but we started our first fire tonight in our fireplace and it was nice to know we will be leaving the cold weather behind! We ended our last evening at home with a beautiful fire and chocolate chip pancakes! The kids are SO EXCITED they can barely stand it! I just can't wait to see the little ones faces when the airplane takes off! The 3 littlest ones have never flown before. We are so blessed to be able to share this with them!

We will post TONS of pictures when we get back! Please pray that we have a safe and "unsick" journey and that we will make some good memories!
