Day Five...and Six...

missing bottom tooth
the 'found' tooth

So today was the last full day of vacation and a full day at sea.  We opted for the sit down breakfast, which was nice and a change.  Ansley lost her 5th tooth, literally lost it!  We were crawling around on the floor looking everywhere.  Fortunately, a nice lady found it and so the tooth fairy visited Ansley once again on the ship.  (unfortunately, we were closer to the States and the American tooth fairy is much cheaper than the Mexican one)  The girls spent some time in the kids club and Jake and I spent some time laying on the deck.   It was so windy but we found a little corner that wasn’t too bad.  Ansley took a towel folding class and cannot wait to show off her mad towel skills.We picked the girls up and took them to the pool and hot tub.  Ansley finally got to slide down the big slide!

The girls went to the kids club and went to a farewell party.  They both had a great time!  We headed outside, braved the wind, and we watched the sun set over the Gulf.  It was so beautiful.  God painted an amazing picture for us to enjoy! 

I actually got them to pose for a few pictures for me. (not an easy feat)

 After that we went down and saw a comedian..then on to dinner (again).  Man on a cruise, all you do is eat!  Jake had braised ribs, tomato and mozzarella with basil and a crab cake, I had all appetizers including two crab cakes, tomato and mozzarella with basil and awesome french onion soup, Ansley ordered fruit salad and veal parmesan.  She and I were also surprised with more strawberry bisque and more fried shrimp for Ansley.  The amount of food is amazing and almost wrong on these cruises!  Sarah, of course, slept through dinner yet again.

So this morning we woke up in Mobile, AL.....back to cold cold reality.  We got up and finished packing, ate some breakfast and got off the boat.  We drove home, it took about 6 hours, a few more stops than going.  We arrived home safely and unpacked (amazing that we did not leave everything in the car for days) and are now enjoying some time on our couch!  We cannot wait to get in our beds!
