Can you keep a secret?
We're going on a Disney Cruise. We've been wanting to go since the ships started sailing, but as Rick says, "our dates never lined up." Well, we're going! Can you believe it?
I've never been on a cruise and I hear this one is awesome! They have a Pirate's Night dinner! Of course, we're going in costume. How much fun is this going to be? We're going to wear billowy-white pirate shirts, red sashes and black pirate hats--perhaps I'll glue-gun a few white plumes to the hats. We'll have pirate pants too: black. I think eye-patches will be too itchy, so we're skipping those, but Collin's hat comes with a stick-on goatee and mustache.
Collin has no idea. He thinks we're going to have a "beach adventure" before school starts. He thinks the pirate stuff that's started to arrive in the mail is for a family Halloween get up that we've been known to photograph and turn into Christmas cards. He thinks we can dress up as pirates for our Church's "Trunk or Treat" community event, but that he'll really get to be Harry Potter for Halloween (of course he will!). But really? We're going to dine as pirates on the Disney Cruise! Then of course, we'll use the costumes all year. So far so good on the secret side of things. He has no idea!
