Hey guys - first off, WELCOME to our newest Dads - and woot, woot, for achieving 400! My last post was 10 pages ago prior to heading down to Atlanta - straight from So. Cal. I wasn't finished posting pics from my DL trip yet... so sorry, I guess I'll just have to bore you all with a few more. Once I finish uploading them to photobucket I'll get a few more posted here for you all - and then scroll through those 10 pages to get caught up on what's going on. I did post on the party bus thread for the Dec. 2010 trip meet some of you are planning ... I'm hoping we can work that out and join you guys, but I'm still not sure. If nothing else, I can probably head down myself for a couple to a few days solo.

We're presently nailing down our 2010 & 11 trips now other than the big family reunion one we're taking in Jan (my folks are joining us from Oregon, & my bro is flying in from Hawaii as well) - a mere 26 days away now. Can't wait for that! So hopefully a Dec. trip will work out. Additionally we have an anniversary trip to VWL in March, and I promised a daddy/daughter trip for sometime next fall - perhaps this will be the December trip... hmmm, I'm just thinking about that one. That could work out...

Our plans are fluid right now - we were planning on heading west as a family, even have a reservation at VGC for the summer, but that is possibly going to change before too long. DW is still pondering. Oh well... I'm taking a wait and see approach right now. I'm hoping that we can make it work, but that one might need to be postponed until spring or summer 2011 since DS13 starts the 9th grade next fall, going in to the public school system (he's been homeschooled all along) so we're facing some BIG changes to our vacation timing abilities over the next 12 years , since DS10 will be following him when he reaches high school as well - and then by the time DS10 is ready to graduate, DD5 will be entering high school shortly thereafter as well... the flexibility is leaving in 2010! Ugh. Oh well. Time does go by quickly. It seems he was just born, and now he's taller than his mom and catching up to me. Lately I've been putting myself into my parents' shoes now - thinking about how in the not too distant future DW & I will be wondering when our kids will "have time" to come for a visit, call, etc...

I've been a Disney nut all my life. The wife doesn't exactly embrace the Dis obsession, but she does tolerate it though. I'm teaching the three little ones well, so someday our collective fanaticism will make annual WDW trips a tradition like I grew up with.
yes you get to buy the first round

And after reading the last few pages, you guys appear to be thirsty. Maybe being #400 wasn't such a good idea. This may get expensive.

Pumping Fuel Tank out of boat: Fun

Discovering the fuel stabilizers worked: Awesome

Finding out the cranking battery is dead at the ramp: Even More Awesome




Disney Fed's Minivan (by popular request):



Now ask me how much a new cranking battery cost me this morning?
