Yesterday, I asked Kaeson what he would like for Christmas. I was expecting something along the lines of a watch or a game or even a robot of sorts but, no. He said, “Hang on Mom” and quickly ran upstairs. I was curious at to what he was up to and what he ran to retrieve. Apparently, he was looking through one of my Family Fun magazine issues and cut out this 5 page ad for a Disney Cruise. He then went on to explain the following: “Mom, I want to go on a big boat for Christmas. See this one. It has all sorts of fun stuff on it. Lightening McQueen is on this boat. So is Tarzan…..”
Kaeson went on to explain every single page to me and why is was necessary that this be his Christmas gift.
On this page, he was thrilled that there was actually a waterslide on the boat. He was a bit concerned that the slide went off the side of the boat like on the houseboats at Lake Powell. However, after a moment of explanation, he understood. The cool part is that Tarzan swings onto the “patio”( upper left corner) and that was “awesome.”
Sorry, this picture is sideways. He wants to go to the beach in the worst way and this picture didn’t help. He was mesmerized by the gigantic sand castle. The boat in the background was just too tantalizing and he sat for five minutes explaining to me the basics of a cruise ship.
Ok, I thought that this part was kind of cool. He couldn’t stop talking about the fairy experience and how Kyra would love it. He has also watched the Tinkerbell movies and knows all of their names. He has now developed a sincere desire to see a real fairy.
He wasn’t quite sure why this lady was sleeping in the tub but, told me that he was sure that I would enjoy it. He is right! However, I don’t know how I feel about Jasmine and Aladdin acting as the Disney Peeping Toms.
Well, I have to say that finally, Kaeson and I agree on the perfect Christmas gift. Too bad it is WAAAAAAAY beyond our budget. Someday though, it is on my bucket list to be able to take my kids on one. However, with the way of my budget, they will be the ones taking me on one… when I am 70!
