Disney Cruise 2013

We took our very first family vacation last week.  In order to avoid having to fly with all three kids, we opted to take a Disney cruise out of Galveston.

No pictures from the last day.  It was pretty much just breakfast and getting off the ship.  We were all tired and Clare wasn’t feeling well.

Overall, the trip was a lot of fun.  Lots to do and see each day.  The kids were sad to leave, guess that means it was a success.
