Merry Christmas. Hey who wants to go swimming?

Posted by Alexander

Yaaaaay Grandma and Grandpa are here.

Our grandparents came and visited us for a week so I have been too busy to blog. Now that they’re gone I can catch up and tell you all about their visit. It was so great to have some new people to interact with on the boat for a while. It was especially nice that they had a connection to home. Grandma and Grandpa are always globe trotting and we were only a pit stop on the way to a cruise. (They didn’t even invite me to come with them Sad smile ).

Are we sure this bench is big enough?

We got to show them the boat and Katie threw a little party. Not just any party. A Christmas party. “Say what?” I know, right? We had an early Christmas party because we figured that having our relatives over was about as Christmasy as it was going to get. So we taped up some snowflakes and even hung some Christmas lights.

It's Christmas in November!

Grandma and Grandpa even had presents for us. Yaaaaaay! They had brought these cool little metal sheet models that we could build. One was the first Wright brothers plane. The other was the Black Pearl. We also got chocolate which we had to put in the fridge to keep from melting. Katie got a cute little otter. A stuffy not a living one. They also very generously gave us each some money to get something we would like. Christopher and I each downloaded a game for our Nintendo DS because when you’re on the high seas with no Wi Fi it’s a nice thing to have.

Christmas presents and treats.

Another really cool experience we had with grandma and grandpa was that we swam with dolphins. Wild dolphins that were just hanging out by our boat. Christopher did a blog on that so check that out. All I’m going to say is that there were dolphins and we swam with them and it was awesome Open-mouthed smile.
(Man I don’t know about those smiley faces…)

Swimming with dolphins - stay posted for more details.
