Surprise Spring Break Carribbean Cruise and Stephen is 17!

We kidnapped the kids for one of the most fun adventures we've done yet -- we drove them to Florida, saying 'we're going to a surprise all-inclusive resort, so pack swimsuits!' The morning we boarded, we drove around town as they kept asking where we were going. When we finally drove past the ships and Daron started talking about the Allure of the Seas... the Royal Carribbean ship that was the world's biggest cruiseship til someone recently built one a few inches bigger... we casually talked about it and the kids said we should go on it sometime. So Daron said, OK - let's go, and drove us over there. They all screamed - it was so fun. They had no idea. So it was a dream vacation where we also got to celebrate Stephen turning 17 at the end too!! Off to St. Thomas & Bahamas for the week... The fun ship had ice skating, ziplining, surf flow rider, rock climbing, a carousel, Central Park Garden, crazy yum buffets including all you can eat donuts, pizza, and ice cream... But one of our most favorite parts was playing all our board games we brought! Loved the excursions to Megan's Bay, Underwater Fish watching boat in Bahamas, and bus tour of St. Maarten, although Kas got a little sick...
