Someone was thinking when they designed this ship. The playroom for Cholita's age group (3-5) is in a quiet corner of the boat, but to get to the rooms for 5 up through teens, you had to travel through the den of temptation--the video arcade. The girls played some pricey air hockey. For the adults, to get to the theatre, you had to pass through the casino. Same concept.
On our boat was the Harley Davidson "Hogs on the High Seas" convention. Interesting people. Very interesting take on formal wear. Lots of leather.
Here Lucy is checking out the rock climbing wall. Behind her is the basketball court where Lyle made us all proud by bringing home the bronze in the 3 on 3 basketball tournament. He met up with two other "mature" men and they smoked several younger teams. The gold went to Team BYU (what is it with Mormons and basketball?) even though Lyle's team beat them. It was a double elimination thing and Lyle said, "Team Tank Top just had our number."
The helper Lucy had for the rock wall was quite petite. Thankfully that freed up the hulking man on the next line for me.
With help from He Man on the rope, I also rang the bell.
Lucy was awesome and scampered up the wall and rang the bell.
And of course, Bruder couldn't be shown up by the girls. I didn't see it, but I heard Lyle ran up the wall like Spiderman and even little Rose rang the middle bell.
Cabo San Lucas
The shopping in Mexico was right up Rose's ally. Cheap little items that she could bargain for. She loved it.
While Lyle and the big kids went to snorkel and kayak, I took the little girls to the beach where Rose drank her lemonade and looked like she was posing for some Lifestyle Magazine. And then....We did it! Rose and I can both say that we've kissed a dolphin. And yes, Cholita cried. Thankfully she was "gratis". The picture above sure wasn't.
This style afforded me three days of no hair combing. Yes, it was indeed a vacation.
And even when she tired out, Cholita just changed position and kept digging.
