Thankful today for: Everley and her antics; taking her to school; Steve's safe travel to California
|First there's some chocolate chip pancakes at First Watch ...|
|Then there's legos while lounging on a couch while watching "Frozen."|
|Pam, Laura, and me in a group, and Elizabeth off to the side.|
I guess she got there late for the photo.
Or had the sense to not be associated with us.
|My wedding. I didn't have bridesmaids.|
Pam served the cake and Laura served the punch.
Elizabeth was in Florida.
Laura caught the bouquet.
|My birthday party.|
Pam's on the end with the curls and the big bow on her dress.
|Elizabeth and me.|
Dressed up in Pam's mother's curtains.
I have a pillow on my head as a hat.
Because that's what you did back then.
|Not saying who got the gigantic apple fritter ...|
|Sadness at leaving. But at least Laura is in her daytime clothes!!|
|The view from my new balcony - it'll do!!|
|Apparently somebody ate her Wheaties and decided to wake the others up ...|
|Elizabeth and a friend ...|
|Our buddy Brodie. Who clearly knows his way around a selfie stick.|
|The selfie stick in action.|
|Elizabeth. Very serene.|
|Laura. Even more serene.|
|Pam. Serenest of all?|
|Mickey saluting the bride. Minnie was obviously elsewhere.|
|The bride and her bridesmaids. Have you caught on to the color scheme yet?|
|The princesses and the bridemaids and a couple of other dudes.|
|Best. Cruise. Photo. Ever!!|
|Cinderella waving to us. Because we're besties. And the cruise is almost over!!|
|Reality hits. Elizabeth needs to pack. And it's midnight!|
|It's pretzel day!!|
|And it's drink of the day time!|
|And it's Rainforest Room time!|
|Three restful ladies - and one crotchety dude ...|
|The sauna - if it weren't so hot, it would be my favorite spot.|
|Just some loveliness!!|
|The bride and her maid of honor. And the cruise director. Because they're all besties, too!|
|And so they brought me a cake for my birthday. Which also isn't today.|
But it's coming up!!
|The birthday girl leading the trek to find the sun ...|
|The minions following her lead ...|
|The sun is going to rise. Really, it is. In just a few minutes ...|
|I see the sun!!|
|The official Sunrise Club. Some of us might consider this a one and done ...|
|This is not a sunrise bar ...|
|Again, Ms. Fancy Pants Photographer arranges a fancy schmancy shadow shot.|
|Here she is in action. In her pjs. Before she goes to breakfast.|
|The aftermath of getting some people up to see the sunrise.|
|And it's time for breakfast!! In our pjs! In public!|
Needless to say, nobody wears negligees anymore.
At least not in this group.
At least not on this trip.
|We're in St. Thomas!|
|Elizabeth's birthday celebration!|
|I told you we were in St. Thomas. Yay for cell service!!|
|Sending them off on a pirate ship.|
|The view from the Fantasy. They're the ones in red and blue at the front of the ship.|
|The view from the pirate ship.|
I'm the one on the railing.
Oh - the only one on the ship apparently.
|Returning from snorkeling. They're the ones at the front in their princess pose!|
|Dinner at Animator's. Yes, we're wearing matching shirts. Because we're our own fan club!|
|Some of our artwork.|
|More of our art work.|
|Tinkerbell. And our sassy pose. Because we are sassy.|
|Belle waving to us. Because we're her besties!!|
