a cruise video

So we are back! Back home and back into the swing of things as it were. School and lunches and outfits prepped the night before and all the fun things that come with a weekday during the school year. And it only took me four loads of laundry!

As some of you know our cruise was supposed to head down to the Bahamas but sadly because of Hurricane Matthew Carnival felt it would be safer to just reroute us north to Canada. Not ideal, but rather safe than sorry. And they were so good to us and gave us each $100 on board credits and 25% off a future cruise... and we could have cancelled should we have wanted to but we carried on! And I'm so glad we did!

I really tried to make a concerted effort to take more videos on this vacation than I normally do, which is usually no videos. So I threw them together here to share until I get around to recapping the vacation itself. We had such a great time and are so thankful for my parents who treat us to such wonders!

And if you make it to the end of the eight minutes or so than you must be related to me. God bless you.

  2. Omg! I love every single thing about this. Great job on the video. I felt a little emotional about it too. Love cruising too much. I seriously need to get myself on a cruise. ASAP. ;-)

  3. oh i love love love the video. i usually take 0 videos on vacation too, but everyone doing vacation videos makes me want to do them too! next time haha. it's such a fun way to look back. i am sorry that it wasn't the cruise you planned, but yay for on board credit and a discount on another cruise. how awesome!

  4. This is such a great idea! and i'm kind of snickering about the guys chip and dale photo shoot thing, or whatever it was...LOL! great music choices!

  5. So glad that Carnival was accommodating even if you guys didn’t get to go to your original destinations. And it sounds like you guys made the best of it. We used to be so bad about taking video on vacations. We bought a GoPro in hopes of taking more video. And it worked! We got a ton on our vacations! So glad you made an effort to capture video, too. I love your video. We’ve never been on a cruise, so it was neat to get an inside look. Can’t wait for more recaps.

  6. Wow! @

  7. oh i'm sooo glad you were able to capture so much on video!!!! how wonderful that you have this to always remember along with the photos!!! and i love how much fun your family seems to have being together no matter where you guys are. :)
