Just got confirmation from my DW Sue that our annual (except for 2006) Memorial Day Sunday Picnic is a go for 2008.

The picnic will be held starting at noon on Sunday May 25th (the day before Memorial Day) at our home in NE Ohio. Send me a PM or an email to towncrier "at" gmail "dot" com for the exact address. We provide burgers and soft drinks and a place to get together. The picnic usually runs late into the evening, so if you can't make it at noon, come by when you can. The party will be held rain or shine. This is a whole family affair. We always have a good time. ALL Disney fans are welcome.

Hope to see you there!!! :banana:

John,

Tim and I are determined to be there this year.....however, he is having a difficult time with his knee (new injury) and by the time I get him to go to the doctor who knows what might be happening.

I really, really want to come. I will do my best to get him better by then.

Put us down for a dessert and a salad of some sort. Something healthy and something sinful. 'Bout does it.

I hope you and DH Tim can make it to the picnic. And, for the record, you can skip the "something healthy". :laughing:

One of these years I WILL get to your BBQ, John! My son's HS graduation is the 27th, so I won't be able to get out that way this Memorial Day weekend.

Hey - I think we need another CEDAR POINT DIS meet! It's been 5 years since the last one in August 2003! :teeth:

Ok, I had to edit my original post. DW is our family social director and said that we will be in that neck of the woods that weekend. If we are invited we would love to come and meet some folks with similar interests.

I will send Towncrier an email.

As soon as I find your email address (that I know you just sent me), I'll send you our address and some directions to our house. My head is still spinning from my whirlwind weekend trip to WDW. I cannot believe that I already home and that our son James is now a WDW castmember. He will be working at Rock'n'Roller Coaster, Tower of Terror, and Fantasmic. I can't wait to go back in 2 months to see him in action.

If anyone else needs directions, drop me a PM with your email address and I'll send the information to you.

See you Sunday!!!

Desserts are fine, but you can bring whatever you would like. I'm sure that there will be plenty of food to go around. Besides, it's more about the friendship than the food. (Did I say that???)

All 4 of my children are sick with strep. :sick: :sick: :sick: :sick:
It is going around the school and hit us hard! As a result we will not be coming to the meet. I am bummed that we can't come but I also don't want to share the germs with you guys and the kids need to rest to get better.
Maybe another time. :sad1:

Oh no! I was not feeling very well last night. I took Nyquil, thinking I would feel better in the morning. I am still not feeling well and now my ears are plugged! I babysat the grandkids on Tuesday and Tabby had a cold which I think I finally caught!

I will probably not make it tomorrow. :sad1:

Thanks everyone who made this year's picnic another success. Sue, Sarah, and I had a great time seeing friends both old and new and having the opportunity to catch up. I probably ate enough yesterday to carry me through to June. For those of you who weren't able to attend due to illness, I hope you are feeling better soon. Hopefully you will be able to come next year. Some of us disappeared for a while to go see Brandywine Falls, a 60 foot high waterfall that is about 5 miles from our house. Perhaps next year we'll organize an afternoon trip for a bigger group to go see one of nature's wonders (and to walk off the burger, hot dogs, baked beans, cheesy potatoes, and all the yummy desserts).

You all made us realize just how blessed we are to have so many friends to make our Memorial Day weekend special. Barry and Nancy (perfectmatch300) were the catalyst that started this tradition and I am grateful to them for that. They are my son's surrogate parents while he is interning at WDW and for that we are most thankful. And to think. It all started with a mouse.

Sounded like a good time was had by all. We are feeling better now thanks to the wonders of medicine. Sorry we missed the fun, see you all next year!

John...we had a wonderful time. I actually went for a jog early the next morning to work off some of the food ;)

Todd is talking about possibly camping up your way around the time of the peddler's thing. Any good camping suggestions? Do you know the dates?

We went to the fall the next day and it was wonderful to see. We walked towards the inn and could smell the flowers. Next year we are going to grab lunch and go there since they have places to eat near the Inn.

Thanks for having us. It is wonderful of you and Sue to open your home and hearts the way you do.

BTW...tell Sue I would love to hear the updates she gets nightly. I found the one she got while we were there very interesting.
