Disney Cruise - Another Day at Sea

Friday was another day at sea. Before the cruise started I imagined I would rather spend more time at sea and less time on land because it is more relaxing to be on the boat. Well we have had so much fun on the excursions that I love our days on shore but I have to admit, after three very action packed days, a day at sea as welcome.  
We didn't really do much except play with the kids in the splash zone and go down the water slides but after three hectic days that felt good.  
 I think it is amazing how close Cameron and Piper are developmentally. They are essentially twins right now. 
 I have no idea what this kid is doing but he thinks he's pretty cool. 
 Actually, he is pretty cool.
 This was supposed to be a picture of all the kids but at the time we only had two. Do you see Justin and me in the reflection?
As I mentioned before, every evening we went to a live show with the family. I always had Cameron and Justin usually had Landon and usually all four of us ended up falling asleep. That fact that I'm awake in this picture means that it must be early.  
I have to tell you a funny story. Our regular morning routine was that Cameron would wake up somewhere between 6:00 and 6:30. Cameron would wake up Grandma who would ignore him until he woke up Evan. Grandma would then get up with them both and open up the curtains and enjoy the morning. Evan would watch TV and use the TV controller  while Cameron had the room phone and he thought he was controlling the TV. Meanwhile I would eventually roll out of bed somewhere around 8:30. Kira and Justin and the other two kids usually got up around the same time as me.  It was a wonderful schedule.

One morning Cameron woke up earlier than normal probably because he had a very nasty diaper. Lisa couldn't stand it and she remembered that Kira had a can of air freshener in her room. She quietly sneaked into their room and crossed over to the far side of the room to get the can of air freshener which was actually on their bed table. When she turned around to leave the room she saw two eyeballs peaking over the edge of the crib just like in the picture above. Lisa quickly hid behind a pillar in the middle of the room hoping that Piper wouldn't notice her. The only light in the room was from their clock so it was still quite dark in the room and luckily the eyeballs eventually disappeared and Lisa quickly scooted out of the room. According to Kira, those eyeballs were a rather common occurrence in the mornings.

The ships anchor weighs more than 14 tons. About the same as three elephants.
