Pre-Trip It's Never Too Early to Start a PTR, Right?!?

Exciting news!! We're going on another cruise! It just won't be until 2021!

We have promised the kids that we would take them each on a trip as a graduation present, and Logan is finishing up his sophomore year. If you have read any of my other PTRs or even trip reports, you know that I am a planner! I have been on his case to decide what he may want to do so we can 1) start saving money, and 2) I can start researching. He has finally decided that he wants to go on another cruise. He took a few days to decide if he wanted an Alaskan itinerary or a tropical itinerary. He finally decided on a tropical trip. Now we just have to wait for the 2021 itineraries to be released to decide if he wants a longer Caribbean trip or a shorter, but possible Castaway Cay double dip Bahamas trip.

Who: Me (Amy), Brian, Logan (16 now), Lily (14 now), and Owen (11 now)

Here I am with the kids on the last cruise we took in 2014:

Unfortunately, Brian ended up not being able to go on that cruise, so he and I took one later that year.

Needless to say, we have all changed significantly since then!!
Here are the kids on our trip to Universal last year:

And at WinterSummerland last year:

I feel like they all have changed a ton just since last year, too!
Here they are at the zoo on Easter this year:

Logan has had a busy spring with track! (He's the one in the navy!):

Lily got a ukelele for her birthday and was thrilled!

Owen just broke his wrist playing soccer:

And here are Brian and I sitting at one of the many rainy track meets this year:

Unfortunately, I won't have anything to update for quite some time, but I was so excited and wanted to share with you guys!!

That is exciting! Seeing the pictures of your kids through the years suddenly made me very aware of how fast the years with my kids is going to go.

Time definitely needs to slow down!! I was just looking through pics from Owen's first trip back in 2011 and can't believe how little they looked! This is my favorite one from that trip:

Enjoy it while you can! They are a joy at this age too, but definitely a whole different ball game!

Fun! What ports are you hoping to visit once itineraries come out?
He's not sure yet. We've been looking at the current Caribbean vs hoping for a Castaway Cay double dip Nassau trip, so we'll see what he decides. As much as I would like to do a Caribbean one, I am kind of hoping for a 4 or 5 day Bahama one so we can maybe add a few days at WDW on either end of the cruise!

Double dips are very nice!

This has nothing to do with our future cruise, but we did have a WDWMagic meet up today, so I thought I would share some pictures. We spent the first half of the week at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. We then drove along Lake Erie and visited the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. We were lucky enough to get to spend part of today with @amjt660 Max/Drew/Andrew/Clarence and his lovely wife @TMax Tricia. It is always so nice to actually meet the people I feel like I already know from all our reports on here!
