I guess they told her not to smile

The squeakiest wheel on the what-are-we-going-to-do-this-weekend train happened to be Costco.  Momma was running out of her last bale of paper towels.  By the time we wheeled that double-wide cart to the front of the store, I couldn't actually see over the front of it for all of the stocked up paper products.  I may have taken out a sample station, I have no idea.

I did have an ulterior motive for heading to Costco.  You see, I knew they had a photo department.  A photo department that does passport photos.  

We (I) might, might, might be thinking of going on a cruise this year (emphasis on the might).  I've just started looking in to it.  As far as vacation requirements go:  Cora's requesting a beach.  Scott wants affordable.  Lily has no preference, unless naaaaaaaaa is a preference.  I want something where every meal isn't going to be a struggle to find something that Cora will eat.  This kid despises a kid's meal.  Hell, she hates adult meals too.  She just wants to eat fruit, cereal, and peanut butter sandwiches.  I also want easy.  

My big grand idea is....A DISNEY CRUISE!  

When I wrote this article over at Passporter News last year, I redeemed my thank you gift certificate for a Passporter's Disney Cruise Line and Its Ports of Call book.  I'm 200ish pages in and almost completely hooked.  

I contacted a travel agent last night (this one) to get a quote for a 3 day cruise sometime in the next few months.  

So, the girls got their passport photos done while Scott browsed the rows and rows of giant TVs.  Cora's expression in hers seemed unhappy at best.  It would foreshadow what was to come.  

This day isn't going to end well momma.

The drive home was going well until about 5 minutes until we pulled into the driveway.  

Cora: cough, cough, cough, BAARRRFFFFF  Momma, I did a spit up.

Oh, you didn't feel well.  You *did* pick up that stomach bug that your sister had a few days ago that I thought we had avoided.

Sorry kid, momma should have Lysoled a bit more.  

I guess this way if she's seasick, she'll match her passport photo perfectly.
