The Good, The Bad, & the Nuts! ...ANYONE GOING MAY 8-15?

Welcome to my “not really a” trip report. I have tried to to PTRs and TRs in the past but they always fizzle out. So instead I am going to try (no promises) to post pictures of our past trips and with little explanations, let them speak for themselves. If I remember any nice little anecdotes along the way I will throw them in.

This will get off to a fairly slow start because…..well because I don’t actually have the pictures for our most recent trips on my computer. I have photopass pics (not many) and a couple ride pics that I scanned in. But the bulk of our pictures are on DH’s computer. That is downstairs in his “command center”. He has 2 or 3 computers down there plus half a dozen external hard drives so I wouldn’t know where to begin to look for anything. On top of that – he is moving the command center upstairs to middle sons old bedroom (he moved downstairs to oldest sons old bedroom – oldest son in last year of college and says he won’t be moving back home he gave middle son his old bed and old room so now he has nowhere to come back to if he changes his mind ) So with the equipment moving upstairs….soon (that’s another story….) it could be awhile before I have access to our pictures.

Here is a teaser




This is our June 2010 family trip. The four boys in the front row are my son Ryne - hidden in his shirt (middle – 19), Sean (oldest 20 at the time, 21 now), Ethan (a friend of the boys that we brought with us – 18), and Mark (youngest – 16 at the time, 17 now).

And here they are again…..




Yes, they are nuts!

They rode several times trying to do different silly faces for the camera. These were the two they wound up liking the best. I think they are actually in the wrong order because it looks like Mark is hanging on in the 2nd picture....he's not one of those "put your hands in the air on the scary ride" kinda guys, he's the "hold on and hope I don't die" kind. I think the other boys eventually got him to let go of his death grip on the handles a little bit for the camera


Another disclaimer….I am trying to type this in word and add pics and transfer it over…..don’t know if it will work. It may take me a little bit to get the hang of things.


And, good or bad, here is your guide for this trip back through time…..





Me (Tanya 43 at the time, 44 now….can you tell we have a lot of summer birthdays???) and DH (Danny 56). We were at the Wishes Dessert party which had PhotoPass set up for pics of the night time castle .

Hi Dan

I don't know how many times they rode ToT We were there 8 days. If I ever get to see the trip pics I may find even more redneck pics of their adventures. But these two they wrote down the numbers and asked us to see if we could go view the pics and maybe get one for them. Did you know that in the ride picture packages that you can get the 2 5x7's with 2 different poses in the same package??? I didn't - I stood there looking at the 2 poses trying to decide when the CM finally told me that I could get them both

I have one of them on Splash Mountain too.....but I fugured I better pace myself since I have such limited resources

I'm here!

Love the ToT pictures. It's my favorite ride. I've never been able to poise for it. I usually have the biggest grin on my face. I love to loose my stomach.

Is it strange that on 3 weeks we will be pulling into the Boardwalk and I haven't started packing yet?

Is it even stranger that I had a dream last night that we were unpacking down there and I realized I had left Rynes pins at home and I was trying to sneak around and buy some so no one would know I forgot them??
