It's a Cat World After All! A Sept TR (Updated 8/4 Page 11)

Hello everyone! I've finally decided to get this TR started; I know...I've been home for awhile now and I've been slacking. It will start slow (because I haven't edited my PhotoPass pics yet), but I need to get this thing going! Anyways....if you've never read my PTR/TR's before, WELCOME! Please check out the link to my PTR for some background info on this trip.

Celebrations Galore & Free Dining Too!

In case you don't have time to go back and read my PTR, here's a quick review. We stayed at POFQ from Sept 18-25th. We were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary (which was in April), out DS's 1st birthday (June), my 30th birthday (June), our DD's 10th birthday (which was last week) and our DS's first trip. This was a big year for us! I am currently uploading my pics to Photobucket, so you'll have to wait for those. Please bear with me!

Hi everyone. Once again, so sorry I've been neglectful. It's been a busy couple of weeks, but things are finally settling down. I will post an update very soon!

Hey Meghan! I'm still hanging around, and whenever you have time for an update, I'll be ready!!

I've still not finished my TR from March, so I totally understand!

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving with your family and got some shopping done too (I have FB insider info that you did!).

I was at ak that day too! We drove up and due to an accident we didn't get to the park until 11ish so we did one ride and went to eat and got stuck in the horrible rain. On the tram back to the cars the tram attendant was kind of funny asking how we liked the extended Kali river rapids ride they were trying. I could have sworn some of the buildings got hit by lightening it was so close!
