Ok sorry I haven't posted about the rest of our trip yet, every time i try to put pictures in it wont work so I guess I will just have to write about it. So next we went on an amazing 3-4 day cruise. We first had to get our luggage taken by a man to put it on the boat. Then they took our picture and we had to go in and get a number to board the boat in. I think we got a number two but the Sowards got a number one. We ended up finding a number one on the floor and just going with the number ones. We got on and went to the pool of course. We went down the water slide, went in the hot tub, and layed out in the sun. Next, it was time for a drill, we had to go to a room and learn what to do in case of an emergancy and then go to our assigned areas. When that was done we went to dinner. I really like the dinners on the cruise because you can order WHATEVER you want and you could order 10 different main coarses if you wanted(no one could eat all of that but you still could do it if you wanted to):) You sit at a table all nice and pretty with folded napkins and everything. BUT, the first thing my brothers and the Sowards boys do is out the napkins on their heads and wear them as hats lol:) I got lasagnia and it was super good but I sttarted to feel sick so I couldn't eat it all:( After dinner we took all of the kids to kids club and I went to my room because I didn't feel very good. THAT WAS ONLY DAY ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The next day we woke up and went to breakfast. It was a sea day so all of the kids went to kids club. I am too old for it so I stayed with my parents and Mercedes stayed with me for part of the time and went to kids club another part. I played volleyball with my Dad hung out by the pool at lunch while watching Brock and Reef stand on the side of the hot tub and dance. They were so funny they would shake their hips and then all of the waiter people would laugh and watch them. We then had to go get ready for formal night. We then took a ton of pictures at the different sceneries and then went to dinner. I was feeling WAY better today and ate a great dinner and had a warm chocolate melting cake for desert they are the best things EVER!!!!!!!!! We then went and took the kids to kids camp and went to the show it was good and we had a lot of fun. The next day we went to Ensanada, Mexico. There we went horsebackriding on the beach. It was an amasing experience. So what happened was the giude would come up behind us and make our horses start running. it was super fun. So my Mom was like give me your wildest horse I grew up on a farm and stuff so she is riding withbrock on the back of a horseon no saddle with this big bag and Brock wants to start running so they go and all the sudden my mom starts bouncing an bounces right off the side of the horse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The horse darts off with brock still on it and alll the sudden all of us see a red sweatshirt flying across the beach on this horse. Brock finally stops it and my mom had to take the walk of shame back to her horse:) haahahahahahaha all of us were laughing really hard and Brock was on my dads horse freaked out.We then went back to the ship and watched part of the wierdest contest I have ever heard of it was called the guy with the hairiest chest eewww.... It was wierd lol We spent a lot of time by the pool and ine of the best things was the hipmotist. It was a great trip and I want to go on another Cruise soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. sorry for the super long post with no pictures I will have to see if the pictures will work and I can post them later.

That sounds like sooo much fun. We just got back from mexico like a week ago, and it was really cool. I saw the pictures on the family blog, so no big deal, but i want to see yours from the ship, too.
