You Want Me to Sew WHAT? - Update 7/22/12!!! Shocked?!?!?! So Am I!
Oh boy, I hope this works! :rolleyes1 I'm going to attempt to do this trip report "photo-journal" style . . . I have too many pictures and when I post to forums like this I tend to get lost when I have to start adding in all the image codes. I promise to "chat" in a normal way like this, but the "meat & potatoes" of my TR will be like the two "pages" you see below. Ok? Okay:thumbsup2

Just in case you want to jump to the PhotoJournal pages and skip all of our humorous banter (although why you'd want to miss how hilarious we all seem to think we are is beyond me:confused3 !!!), here are some clickable links:

Let's Get Things Started!
Some minor details before I post my first photo-journal pages. We stayed at CBR in Trinidad South in two connected pirate rooms. One room was supposed to be for Mimi & Papa and the other for the 4 of us. However, we all knew that at least ONE of the boys would wind up sleeping in Mimi & Papa's room almost every night. We definitely needed connecting rooms!!!
Mimi & Papa would be flying in from Rhode Island on Sunday, Nov 27th and would arrive at the resort sometime early afternoon.
Dave, the boys, and I planned to drive from Charlotte, NC. We like to drive "overnight" so that the boys sleep most of the way and we can get an early start (and insure a good night's sleep our first night in a hotel) in the morning, so we left Saturday night at 11pm and arrived at CBR at 7:00am.
Bryan, our CM at the Customs House, just happened to have grown up in Charlotte, and he was happy to work some magic when he discovered that although Mimi & Papa's room was ready, ours, on the other side of the connecting door, was not. He quickly switched our assigned room numbers and we were on our way to our Pirate Ships (Finn insisted they were Pirate Ships, NOT rooms) :woohoo:
Our plan was to head to The Magic Kingdom as soon as possible and then we'd come back and settle in once The Magical Express had delivered Mimi & Papa to the resort.

Saw you posting on both Judy and D's PTR/TR and wanted to check out your photo journal. I love how you are chronicling your trip. Can't wait to hear more.

Woo Hoo! Not only is it a great TR! (Wish I was creative enough to make one like this!) But I even saw my NAME!

I hope your quilt turns out perfect! (I decided mine needs some more autographs, so I am adding to it next trip!)

Can't wait to see more! (cracking the whip here...I mean it is not like you have anything else to do....right?)

I nearly spilled my coffee this morning, racing to the computer to see more of Marianne's TR...

Hmmm... Marianne, did you forget to post more last night? ROFL I had blocked off a whole hour for you this morning. :surfweb: Maybe I'll text you to see if you're up??? :thumbsup2
