We just finished hosting my parents before they embarked on a two-week-long cruise from New York City to Venice, Italy.
To get them in cruise-mode, Steve constructed towel animals for their bed each night.
As we just went on a cruise last summer, Steve had the cruise turn-down service fresh in his mind, which includes cute towel animals (though I think his elephant is cuter and has more personality than the Carnival elephant). To learn how to construct these cute creatures, he found instructional videos on You Tube.
In addition to an elephant, Steve constructed two swans whose necks and heads formed a heart. His creativity never ceases to amaze me!
