We Strapped Sea Turtles to Our Feet! A Summer of Sea & Shore - 11/13 x3 FINISHED!!!!!
 
HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, here we are! Welcome to the latest edition of a Happy Dog Disney Trip Report! Let's hear it for SUMMER of 2011!!!:yay: :yay:

We did so many new things on this trip! :) I can't wait to share all the fun with you! A quick shout out to all my DISer friends, those of you who have followed me around on all these crazy trips to Disney, AND to any and everyone else who happens to stumble into my madness!!! :wave2: Please make yourself known!!!

This trip spans a little over two weeks, and includes stays in FOUR different Disney locations....

We spent FIVE nights aboard the fabulous Disney Dream (my second cruise on this amazing ship)... :boat:

We spent FIVE nights at Disney's Vero Beach resort in a one bedroom villa... the first time we have every been to Vero or this resort!!! :goodvibes

We spent ONE very interesting and fun night at Fort Wilderness, and YES, drum roll please, we SLEPT in a TENT!!!

Finally, we spent ONE lovely evening at the Animal Kingdom Lodge in a Jambo house studio.

We have had some pretty great experiences at Disney, but this one definitely goes down in our travels to date as one of the more UNIQUE trips we have been on! UNIQUE for locations and new experiences, but also because we continue to be amazed with all that Disney has to offer before you even step into the parks. So with that quick introduction to our amazing summer trip, Lets get this BOAT out of dry dock! :thumbsup2

Who is the Happy Dog Clan? Well.... allow me a quick introduction of the crew .... here is my DH and I, at one of our special evenings at Palo's... Sorry guys, this is a photo of my photo!!! :laughing: There is a little glare, but this is DH and I on our second night of the five night cruise! Tan, relaxed, and fully fed :rotfl:

And then our two little pirates... pirate: Two boys, who just turned 6 and 9, and actually did have birthdays a week before we left on the ship!! They are not the best photography subjects, consequently I have a lot of candids of these two :laughing: ... I have to snap quick! ;)

First, DS6 he is quite a handful of fun, and a bundle of energy, and with too much creativity for his own good.... hence the title for this TR.... strapping sea turtles to his feet became the adventure he was seeking, a'la POTC... and though it didn't exactly materialize as he expected, we did manage something similar....:upsidedow hey, if it is good enough for Jack Sparrow, it is good enough for him! :laughing:

http://i699.photobucket.com/albums/v...mer2011182.jpg

Then my older more photography-complacent child, DS9. Again too much creativity for his own good, and perhaps those fencing lessons were not the best decision we ever made, especially since he likes to "practice" on everything... :rolleyes1 and the pirate theme on this trip certainly was inspiration!!! :laughing: But nevertheless, he does enjoy all our trips to Disney and especially, as of late, loves the Jack Sparrow character and the POTC movies... over and over and over again. :faint:

That picture of DS6 really captures that energy, doesn't it? It looks like he is about to bound out of the seat as soon as he can. :lmao:

I'm very interested to hear and see all about this. We are hoping to get over there for a visit for the day, possibly even one overnight, on next summer's trip.

If she charged for this school, she'd be making a killing!
She could even finance more DVC points with her profit. :goodvibes

HA HA HA.... Well, she knows I have been thinking about it!!!! :laughing: Just couldn't swing it over Memorial day last year. WAY too expensive! So October was a good bet with the finances and the DH!

This TR will be fun to write. Lots of really silly stories and fun!
