So, for 2 months Mira talked about the "big boat", she had no idea what that meant...now she knows. Mira cruised like a pro...there was plenty of fun to be had....she did it all! I could talk forever about the details but I'll spare you!
A few funny things to be noted:
(Mira has no problem saying EXACTLY what she thinks~ even if it's rude!)
1. We (6 of us) enter the elevator, there is another couple already in the elevator. We say hi, they begin to admire Mira and Mira's response is to the point. "Her dress is scary, I don't like it." There was little I could say other than get off the elevator & hope the lady couldn't understand her.
2. One afternoon at lunch as Mira was enjoying Chinese food, another couple sat beside us. Mira watched them carefully & noticed that they did not pray before eating their pizza. Mira stands on her chair and in a very boisterous voice begins to ask them if they prayed before eating. As cute as it was, I felt bad that she drilled these poor folks! The good news is she was easily distracted and didn't realize that 95% of the people on the ship didn't pray before meals!
A few other note worthy things...Mira enjoyed a minimum of 2 ice cream cones per day! She wasn't the only one to have fun. ALL the girls had fun. And despite corralling 4 girls, Greg and I had fun too!
We met an awesome, Christian, adoptive family as well. We spent the whole last day with them. Mira & Lily became fast friends. Lily just arrived in the states in May (what a cutie!) and her brother Noah has been home for 6 years. We feel blessed for the time with them and plan to see one another again soon!
As you might imagine, we are quite the spectical wherever we go & on a ship with the same people all week was no exception! Mira became a rock star rather quickly because she LOVED the hot tub & had no problem hopping in with whoever may have been trying to enjoy some peace & quiet (perhaps WITHOUT their kids!) and doing flips and handstands in the hot tub....she's too cute to get mad at!
I will stop blabbing now...enjoy the pics!
