Spring has officially sprung here in Tallahassee, and we are thoroughly enjoying some pretty nice weather. Even more enjoyable is the fact that your school follows the Leon County Schools calendar, and that meant that you and I got a week long Spring Break. I must say, this was pretty cool. And this year, you celebrated your first Spring Break in style: we went on a family cruise.
All in all there were 10 of us on this cruise. Your Grandma and Grandpa Brooks were the organizers of our trip, and Uncle Ryan, Aunt Andrea, Uncle Kurt, Aunt Stacey and Abigail all came, too. It was a really nice trip, and I think you in particular had a blast.

After a tasty dinner, we walked back through Downtown Disney to get back to our car, but on the way we stopped by Lego Land. You and Daddy got to play with some legos set up at small tables outside the store. I dont know who had more fun, you or Daddy! It was a great night and a great start to a week of fun.
The next morning, we got packed up again and headed over to the cruise ship terminal. You were so good on the drive. You slept most of the way to Orlando during nap time on Saturday, and on Sunday, you took a little cat-nap on the hour drive over to the port. Random note, you did have to pee on the side of I-75. Sometimes those exits are just too far apart. But I digress...

|You, eating. You did a lot of this...|

Like I mentioned before, most of our time was spent at the ship's water park. You had a total blast running and splashing in the spray. It was a lot of fun!
Some of the places we went on this cruise were: Labadee Haiti, where you got to play at the beach, and lo and behold, there was another water park there to play in and Grand Cayman. We all got off the boat here and had lunch at a great little place called the Breezes Beach Bar and Cafe. It was tasty. Daddy unfortunately lost his credit card here (we found out on the way home) but we still had fun. The ship also made port in Cozumel and Fallmouth Jamaica, but we didn't get off the ship there. You preferred hanging out at the ship pool and water park and eating yourself silly. By the way, the ice cream machine had to be your absolute favorite.
