It's been a while since I've updated. We were so lucky to go on a Disney repositioning cruise this past week. I had intended to take a lot of pictures, but somehow I was enjoying family so much that I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I had planned. So you just may be stuck with a more general summary over the next few posts of our fun time with family.
I want to first do a quick update on my current quilt...the Captain America quilt. I have completed the units II-A.

I finally cut into the Captain America fabric. In a previous post, I had mentioned that as long as I was careful with my cutting, I should have just enough of the Captain America fabric for the quilt...despite what the pattern indicated. Well, as Murphey's Law would have it, I didn't quite measure right, so I didn't quite have enough fabric for the quilt.
I quickly jumped on the JoAnn's website, only to find out they didn't have any more of this fabric online, but they did have some at a store about 100 miles away. I didn't want to particularly drive 100 miles for fabric, especially not knowing if they really had it in stock. I went to eBay and had no luck. Then I visited Etsy and finally found a seller with the fabric. It should be here late next week. Whew! Crisis averted!
Cross Stitch Update
I finished my first little section of the Mickey and Pirate Friends cross stitch. Not a whole lot to show but a lot of brown and oranges.

All is going well on this one (knocking on wood).
Disney Cruise Trip Report Day 1 - Pre-Cruise Day
Again, I apologize for not having a lot of pictures. Hmmm...maybe I can talk my adorable nephew into letting me use some of his pictures. He was having a blast taking pictures. Anywhoo...back to the pre-cruise day.
Mr. Goofin' Off worked from home that day. We had an afternoon flight, so we headed out to the airport about lunchtime. Getting to the parking lot and shuttling it over to the airport was a breeze. We enjoyed having our TSA Pre-Check again. It saves so much time and hassle going through security. I am not sure why we didn't do it before.
We were both hungry, so once we made it through we grabbed some Qdoba's at the airport. The food area was packed. They had a live guitarist playing. Oh, how I wish I had taken more pictures. We couldn't find a table, so a nice couple from Houston invited us to sit at their table. They had just gotten off a cruise from Alaska that morning. They were seasoned cruisers and had enjoyed their cruise very much. Of course, talking about cruising only made us that more excited for our cruise.
We boarded our uneventful flight, took a taxi to the hotel, and dropped our luggage off before exploring San Diego. It was a beautiful day in San Diego, albeit unseasonably cool that day. We were only two blocks from the water, so we walked along the bay. Mr. Goofin' Off wanted to see the USS Midway, so we stopped there for a few pictures.
After walking for a while along the water, we decided to get some dinner. We ate outside at an outside patio at Claim Jumpers. It was chilly, but the view of the water was nice. As I recall, we shared a plate of appetizers and then shared a dessert. Afterwards, we rolled ourselves back to the hotel.
We had only been back a few minutes when we ran into Mr. Goofin' Off's parents, brother, nephew, and a cousin he hadn't seen in decades. We spent a few moments together chatting before settling in for the night. The next day was going to be a big day as we would be boarding the ship.
Thanks for following along. Do you have anything special planned with your family this summer? Feel free to comment below and let me know what you're up to.
