Hunter was laughing and the crowd was laughing too. It was a fun character meet.

Lacey was too busy getting her cinnamon sugar almonds. That was one of the three things that she "just had to have" on the trip. The others were cotton candy and a turkey leg. Never got the turkey leg.

Luckily, Hunter has never been afraid of the characters. I hope that Claire will grow out of the scared phase too.

I saw Capt. Hook and Mr. Smee in March and wanted to stop, but my parents and sister just kept going. The line wasn't even that long. Oh, well! Those two were creating memories that Hunter will never forget. I LOVE IT!
I was snapping away the whole time Hunter was up there. I am so glad I did because, like you said, they tell the story so well.

These characters really got into character. (I made a funny.) The cinnamon sugar almonds are sooooo good!

I sure did! And this time, it came out just fine. I didn't use the Paula Deen recipe though. I found one on the Kraft website. It was a white chocolate tropical pound cake. Of course, I didn't get to taste the final product but the batter was super good!

Since there were only enough people there to fill the boat, we were able to really get some good time with them. At one point, I had to make my DD and DS back off and allow someone else to play! But later on, Captain Hook actually came and asked to play with DD's light-up toy (one of the kinds they sell in the parks that we recycle for each trip). He ended up running away with it, and we have video somewhere of Haley and Jack running after him, laughing the whole time. It was the best interaction we've ever had at WDW. It looks like you might have had the same two CMs!

Great updates (again!). Great character interactions make for awesome memories!

Oh - and Jenseib, both my older kiddos were very cautious around the characters around a certain age (4, for us). Haley's 8 now, and was well past it on last two trips, but Jack was just getting into it at age 4 this past fall. I'm sure your princess will get through it at some point!
I am sure that your kids will talk about that cruise for a long time to come! It sounds like it was magical.

I got dragged into the Tiki Room again this past trip....my boys just love those crazy birds. I could do without it, but I'm a good sport!

Cool pics from the SFRTH....I like the Space Mountain view the best!

Hunter's interaction with Smee and Hook....so fun! I love when the characters take the time to do things like that. Makes a great memory!

Oh....I would post a fall colors pic for you, but most of our prettiest trees are past their peak. It's been REALLY cold here so we are a little ahead of schedule as far as the colors and leaves go. We are supposed to have temps in the low 60s this time of year, but it hasn't been out of the 40s all week. YIKES! If I can find a pretty tree to photograph, I'll post a picture for you!
There is nothing like walking down Main Street and seeing and smelling and just taking in everything.

There are a few things that I could skip at Disney and not really care if we missed it. But, the Tiki room is so nice and cool that we just couldn't pass it up this time.

I thought the view from Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse were cool. We let a lot of people just pass us by while we watched the guy with the parachute.

I'd love to see any picture you have from your "part of the country". We are just so plain here in Louisiana.

Are you feeling better now? 'Cause I hope to get another installment posted this afternoon.

That would have been funny! Maybe I should have shown Captain Hook and Mr. Smee my Mickey watch that does tick!

It was a great experience. I think that was the best one of the entire trip.

I have almost the same picture of the castle posted and I talked about the very kiosk Lacey and Hunter are standing at..........LOL.

Thank you so much for remembering Dallas and me in your prayers while we were sick. I just read about your family and I will keep them in mine.

OK, I got more to catch up on .

I thought about you this weekend. I was in Wal-Mart yesterday afternoon and I saw this boy. I kept thinking "where do I know him from?" I just looked at him and smiled. I got about three aisles over and it hit me...."It looked just like Dallas!" I saw him again later on. Tell Dallas that he has a twin in Louisaina!

Don't feel bad about just getting back to reading my report. You have had a lot on your plate lately. I'm just glad that everybody's getting over the swine flu. And, another reason for you not to feel bad about it is the fact that I am behind on your's too. I've been trying to get caught up this morning.

Enjoying the report and looking forward to more!
We've done the Hoop Dee Doo twice and liked it both times. We thought the luau would be something "different" to do at Disney. I'm glad that we did.

I hope you meet them too. I think your boys would love them because they really played their characters well.

The internet lady came to his house this weekend and they ate with my boss' parents. He said his parents really liked her but there was just something about her that he didn't like. He promised it had nothing to do with the fact that she wasn't attractive either.

I told him to give it at least one more date before he makes up his mind.

By the way, I'm getting together my list to post in the first installment. Hopefully, it will help my readers keep up with where the actual/real installments are posted. It's just going to take me a little bit of time.

I have missed out on way too much conversation. I went to lunch with Sheri, got back to work and within 10 min the Dr. says cancel his day. He is sick and went home. I said you might consider two days and of course he said he'd be back tomorrow. I think this is the 2nd time in 7 years he has done this.

At least it is nice and quiet now.

I went thru my TR and on page one at the top I put the page #s of the actual TR so people wouldn't search. I don't think it matters tho cause no one but my regular friends ever gets on it. Thanks friends.

I am glad that your boss did not give up on his internet friend, even after he met her in person and found her unattractive. That's very good of him, I'll have to say.

Question, though: didn't he have a picture of her before he met her? Surely they exchanged photos online. Of course, a picture doesn't really tell the whole story, does it?

Well, it sounds as if it may not be meant to be. Poor guy.

I'm ready to now read. It is all but dead at this office today since the Dr. went home sick. So sad too bad. I didn't say that it was the little man on my shoulder talking again.
