As you may remember, we are all about a surprise here at the GRITS household. And we've pulled off another one this past week.
About 3 weeks before our semi-planned beach vacation, we realized it just wasn't going to work out. We were going to have to switch to Plan B....which did not exist! The hubby found a great deal for a 5 day cruise which just happened to coincide with our vacation week.
We jumped on the opportunity and decided to keep it a secret from the kids. The secret would not be revealed until we pulled up to the cruise terminal. After all, packing clothes for a cruise is just like packing for the beach.
Of course, we got the usual questions from the kids, "when are we going to the beach?" and "are we staying in the same place as last year?" We kept our answers short and sweet, "we are going to the Gulf" and "no, we are not staying in the same place."
They fell for it.... hook, line, and sinker!
I had the camera rolling when we pulled up in the cruise terminal. It is priceless:
I will post on each day of the cruise this week because it's too much to share in one post. So y'all come back now ya' hear?!
