Let's do this!

Jess and I got to talking last night and came up with a fun idea.  This isn't a new idea (I think Chelsey first mentioned it to me a few years ago).  We have decided we need to be serious about it this time.  What we're proposing is this:

Siblings Cruise - June 2015!! 

We don't have a set place or cruise yet, just the idea.  We have to do some research as to where the best place would be to depart from/cheapest cruise, etc.  However, I want to give you all heads up on the idea.  The details can come later.  I figure if we have two years from now to plan/save for it, we can make this happen.  My idea is that we leave kids with trusted friends or relatives.  It would be cheaper and much less stress if we can go on this cruise as just the siblings and their spouses.  Of course, having cousin time would be great, but if you start putting kids into the mix, it gets more expensive and more stressful.  Am I right or what? 

For those of you wishing to pop out another baby at some point, please plan accordingly. hee hee hee  You are not allowed to cruise past 24 weeks of pregnancy with most cruise lines. 

Of course mom, dad, and Ammon would be most welcome.  Whomever can convince mom to get on the ship wins a prize! :)

What are you ideas/thoughts?  I'm serious about this.  Even if Hans is deployed at that point (since it's almost impossible to plan things that far in advance with the military), I'm still coming, regardless.  I would love it if everyone could make this happen.  You'd be surprised how much you can save by putting just a little bit away each month. 

Love you all!

Sounds fun. By the way, whoever changed the picture at the top, can they please add the spouses names too? Just think that would be nice.

Yes! We are totally in. Kevin will HOPEFULLY be graduating the month before that so it can be his graduation present hahahaha. And we aren't planning on popping out any more babies. ever. so count us in. Sounds like a blast. Mia will be 3 and baby will be almost 2... so we can leave them with Reva i'm sure.

So, I was just thinking, wasn't this the same summer Mom suggested we have a family reunion? Are you turning it into a cruise now instead of a reunion. And, I would love to go! But it might be the same summer as the Richards family reunion--which was my last problem with mom's suggestion. But also, I might not have a sitter. But I really want to go. So maybe...we will see where the chips fall. I wish I could give you a yes, but we will have to see. Love the idea. If not, I'll say the same thing I said to mom's suggestion--you probably won't be able to get everyone but you might as well try and if someone can't go, you should to without them!

Yes, this was the summer I suggested a family reunion. There didn't seem to be many takers so go where you want. I think it would be great for all of you to get together no matter where or how. I would love for all of you to make a commitment to meet more often than we have been meeting. It's always been for weddings or funerals. Now it's time to have fun doing something else. I would encourage all of you to consider this.
