I love road trips! Makes we want to hop in the car, crank up the "Life is a Highway" CD, and take off!

I really notice the difference in Hunter from our last trip to this one. That boy has grown like a weed!

BTW, I also posted this over on my PTR, but do you or any of your loyal audience know how I can make the name of my PTR in my siggy the actual link, instead of having the link follow the name? I just had to ask here, 'cause you've got the nicest readers on the DISboards!

Hijacking to answer I asked this on my PTR too and a lovely DISser helped me out

Here's what you do (I hope this makes sense!):

- Open the DIS site twice in two windows
- On window #1, go to your PTR and copy the thread address in the top address bar
- On window #2, go to your signature in the User CP page
- Type whatever you want to show up on your signature (e.g., awesome PTR), then highlight your PTR title
- Click "insert link" button and paste your thread address

Voila!

HTH!

I wondered why the suitcases seemed to push back when we tried to shove more in!

I sometimes wonder if I give too many details. Glad to know that at least you enjoy them. I meant to pick up a CD of Disney music while I was at WDW but simply forgot.

You're too funny!

2010 will be here before you know it! Until then, I hope I can help you pass the time.

I hardly ever buy Coke products because the Wal Mart brand is so much cheaper. Dr. Thunder and Sam's Cola for me. Hey, I gotta save those pennies so that we can keep going to Disney.

Thanks for the compliments on my kids. They really are pretty good. The only problem we ever had out of Lacey was she skipped school a couple of times. Guess where she went?!? Church....prayer meeting. In case you're wondering, we didn't punish her. I mean, how could we?

I know that you're about to bust to get to the CBR. It's such a beautiful resort. I'll be posting pictures in just a little while.

BTW!!! I'm hoping it will be just a little bit of fun like yours -- I started a PTR check out the siggie! EVERYONE JOIN IN AND LET'S PLAN A LITTLE FUN!!
You two come on up to West Monroe. You could stay in Lacey's room until at least Thanksgiving when she comes home for break.

The two kids have no problem whatsoever striking a pose and smiling. John, on the other hand, I have to pry a smile out of. Men!

Looking forward to hearing all about CBR and your trip!
Yep, it was our 14th trip to Disney. Even though we've been 2 dozen times, we still get just as excited as we did on our first trip. After that first trip, we were hooked!

Hey, I'll have to keep that title in mind. It's hard to come up with a title that will fit into the space given.

You know me, I am the world's worst at keeping up with trip reports. I have so many that I subscribe to because I love reading about other people's Disney adventures.

Hopping on board, your title totally sucked me in!
Looks like we will be overlapping in June.

We love road trips too. Our drive to Disney is anywhere from 14 to 16 hours. It just depends on traffic and weather. Everybody asks us why we don't fly to Disney. Besides cost factor, I like spending the time alone in a car with my family.

Hasn't Hunter grown! Every time Lacey comes home for a break, she is amazed at how much he's grown. He has a little bit of a tummy on him and is a little self conscious about it but once he starts football, he'll sweat it off.

I'm glad to see that lisalonglash was able to answer your question 'cause I had no idea. I agree that I do have some of the nicest friends on the Dis.

I've said it before.....I don't consider anything on my threads to be hijacking. Anyone is free to answer questions or post their opinions. I love 'em. I'm glad that you could answer Robin's question 'cause I had no idea.

Sometimes I look at Lacey and she looks just like me and then at other times, I think she looks just like her Daddy. The nose is definitely from her Daddy's side of the family. All of them have the same nose.

You'll be glad to hear that we all kept our teeth. Didn't have to pull out the super glue once!

It took me a while to come up with a title 'cause everything I thought of was too long. But, in time, you'll see how I came up with this one.

Our 2010 trip will be May 27th through June 5th. I haven't decided where we're staying yet but I know these are the dates.

Although this trip didn't have as many ahem...."mishaps"....as our last trip, we had a fantastic trip and spent some great quality time together as a family.

I can't WAIT to hear what Hunter and Lacey thought when they figured out you were going to CBR instead of POP.
This report will be 10 days long so I'm sure I can take you all the way up until your trip. You are still countin' like I do, aren't you?

I know how worried you were about Pop and even though I love the values and it would have been fine, I am so glad you got to change over to CBR. $450 for nine nights isn't bad at all! What I really miss at Pop is the double sinks, free frig, and the ceiling fan. To me the bedroom area size isn't that big of a deal, its the small bathroom sink area that kills us. And no privacy curtain! After nine nights at ASMU in June, I am not sure we can do a value again. Sorry to go on and on, but just know, you won't miss that $450 nearly as much as you'd miss two sinks!

You and John sound like me and Dan. Dan proposed to me after only three weeks of dating and we were married six months later. Funny thing, my biggest naysayers are all divorced now and we have been married 18 years!

I can't wait to read the next installment, we are camping this weekend so I won't be able to read until Sunday!

First of all, there's no need to apologize for going "on and on". You know I'm a detail person and I talk a lot so it's fine and dandy for you to do it too.

I am sure that we would have been fine at Pop but when we heard that Lacey was coming along, I got worried about room size and the sink situation. We haven't decided where we are staying next year but we are still considering a value. Who know what we'll do?

Times have certainly changed since we got married (and you also). Now, people wait until they are in their late 20's or 30's before ever getting married. I just knew that John was the one.

I hope that you have a great time on your camping trip. We are thinking about going camping over the Labor Day weekend. John's parents have a small travel trailer that they never use so we may just have to borrow it instead of tent camping.

What kind of dog is Oddball?
Hey girl! Aren't the Disboards a lot "cooler" than the Intercot boards. I just feel so much more comfortable over here. I still post on Intercot but I find that people are a bit judgmental over there.

Oddball is a mix of Miniature Pinscher and who knows what. We adopted him from the animal shelter when he was just about 6 weeks old. I've got to find a recent picture of him so ya'll can see my other "child".
