So the day started relatively early---7:30am---and we were greeted with a beautiful sunny morning. This picture was the view from our balcony....but don't be fooled. It was COLD! The wind was really whipping up and the boat was moving a bit (which Jason and I don't actually mind) and we needed windbreakers/sweaters to be out on open deck. We had gotten up so early because we needed to be down by the gift shop at 9am so we could get in line to get the collector's pin (which we will make into a collector's magnet) for this cruise....
....but we went for breakfast first.
After breakfast we got in line for our pins/magnets (and had a great conversation with a lovely couple in line behind us who were on their first Disney Cruise and were already raving about how much different...and BETTER...this experience was than previous cruises they've been on!).
After that it was off to lunch and then scrapbooking class. You may recall that in a previous blog post I "introduced" you to one of our DIS friends, Linda. She is an avid scrapbooker and we met her on our 2007 TransAtlantic Cruise where she put together a scrapbooking class that Jason and I did just to be social----but ended up leaving with an AMAZING souvenir. So when she announced she was going to do another scrapbooking class on this trip, we were in for sure!! She puts a lot of time and energy into designing and laying out a book that is themed around our trip/itinerary and brings all the supplies AND very detailed directions....so it's kind of "Scrapbooking for Dummies." We LOVE this...and her for doing it! We're excited to get our scrapbook home and to finish it off with pictures from our trip and once we do we'll post some page by page images of it here on the blog for everyone to see! In the meantime, here are some pictures of us during the class:
Tonight was "The Golden Mickeys." This is one of our favorite shows----a musical with an Oscars kind of theme and everyone wears formal clothing aboard. Of course you know you that means that Jason and I have to have special outfits...and tonight's were EXTRA special. I made us Golden Mickey tuxedo sets with vests and bow ties:

Then it was off to dinner and we were beat!! It was a very fun evening and even though it had felt like we had "nothing to do" for the day...the day was gone!! After dinner we went back to our room and were greeted by:
