How time flies…

So it has been a month since I last posted – too long – apologies. That being said, I will catch you guys up on what has gone on for the past month as quickly as possible so we can get back on track…..

Hip Hop And I Don’t Stop

Easter was so awesome. Obviously, there is a larger importance than egg hunts and candy, but beyond that, it is pretty cool to get an basket full of goodies from the Easter Bunny. You can see in the pics below that the Easter Bunny wrote me a message on our patio when he left me my basket. That afternoon, we went to my Papa Dupree’s house. I got to egg hunt with a few of my cousins and I really cleaned up. Daddy and mommy were really proud of me for not trying to find all the easy eggs – my cousins are younger than me so I had to give them a chance. Anyway, I found plenty of eggs and they all had plenty of candy to eat.

“Parker – This is for you. You are such a good boy. ❤ E.B.”

Ahoy, Matie

Daddy decided to hit the high seas on a cruise without mommy and me. It actually wasn’t all his doing. Papa Kolias actually won a trip through his work and he asked daddy to go with him. Who can blame him for ditching us, right? I would have left mommy and daddy if I was asked. Papa and daddy went to the Bahamas and had a good time. Daddy said he missed me and mommy a lot, but he said he was glad I gave him daddy lion to keep him company. I told him I missed him so bad and I also told him I couldn’t be me without him here. He totally bought it and was like putty in my hand.

Much more happened over the past month, but those were a couple of the highlights. I’ll try to be more current, but I’m almost 6 years old and there is just so much going on for a guy my age.

More pics from the cruise

When my folks were not busy reciting lines from Titanic….it doesn’t look any bigger than the Martegna…..I’ll never let go Jack….you jump, I jump…..and spit like a man (in a weird English country boy/girl accent)…., they were hamming it up with me and the fam. Here are some pics. I will post more as I get them.

Call me Ishmael….

I have just returned from my voyage of the seas. You should have seen me….my gaze fixed on the horizon….my face misted with seawater….my temporary tattoo fading in the sun….

I just returned from my cruise with the fam. We didn’t pass the equator so I didn’t get my ear pierced, but I did get a cool temporary tattoo to mark my maiden voyage on the Carnival Ecstasy.

All in all, the trip was smooth. The waters were fairly smooth until the last day when it was rather rocky. My daddy and mommy said they saw people puking – pretty nasty if you ask me. My folks were a little concerned with how I would react to the motion and the ship in general, but I got my sea legs pretty quickly. As a matter of fact, I believe I got them before my mom, dad, or grannie. I was wanting them to run all over with me and they kept sitting down trying to relax.

I’m not sure what I enjoyed more – being on a huge ship in the middle of the Gulf, not going to school, spending so much time with the family, or being able to sleep with mommy and daddy. Whatever it was, I loved it.

We stopped in Progreso, Mexico (Yucatan) the first port. We rode on a double decker bus all over the city. It was pretty neat to get back to my Latino roots. And daddy was right, he is average height for a Mexican. I’m guessing no one in Progreso knew I was Hispanic. They just took me for your everyday gringo.  After the bus tour, mommy, daddy, grannie, and I went to grab something to eat on the beach. This was the first time I had ever been on a huge beach and I can’t begin to tell you how cool it was. I made sand angels – yes there is video, but not sure daddy will let that get out into the public eye.

Our second stop was in Cozumel, Mexico. This was a little nicer. The whole family headed to Paradise Beach and chilled out together. This was a lot of fun because daddy and I played in the sand. We dug tunnels in the sand for my toy 4x4s to drive through. I’m not sure, but I think daddy enjoyed that time together just as much as I did.

Anyway, it was a great time. I will post some pictures later, but here is a video you can watch…..btw “Call me Ishmael” is the first sentence in Moby Dick for those of you that wondered where that came from.
