Jackson at Sea...

Jackson had a great trip on the sea. He loves going to the beach and meeting many new friends. At our first port Samana, DR we meet a boy named Jordan that took us around on his motorcycle/ricochet. It was a very eye opening experience for our tender young Jackson. He was stunned by how the people lived and had nothing. That night back at the ship he asked if maybe Jordan could come live at grandma and grandpa's apartment so he could have a better
life and cried. It was so tender and it made a big impression on Jackson. Jackson loved playing on the beach and having sand fights with Ayden. He even snorkeled with mom in St. Thomas and saw some really big colorful fish! He loved keeping busy on the ship playing shuffle board, basketball, swimming and making new friends. His favorite experience was going to see magician Brad Rocket perform. He loved it and even helped Brad at an informal show. He can wait to practice the magic he learned. Jackson missed his dad and his little brother and was always thinking of what we could bring them back as a surprise. He also loved getting a temporary tattoo and showed it off to everyone. He had a great trip on the sea and is so "relieved we are home to normal"!
