It was really great meeting you and your family a couple of weekends ago. I have been so busy with coaching, travelling for work, and playing volleyball - along with my full time job and two girls in school that the DIS has taken a back seat unfortunately. I really hope that you can make it next October. It was so fun hanging with you and Wendy!!!
Thanks Leanne! I am glad you could pop back over with you being so insanely busy right now!! I appreciate it.

It was lovely meeting you and Joe! Thanks so much for talking to us about DVC and meeting us up at the mall. Well, we booked our trip for next September/October. It is not a guarantee, but it is booked (so there is a good chance ).

The Countdown Continues...

21 days from now, we better be in bed! Seriously, we will be beginning our journey 21 one sleeps from now—three weeks!! Next up on my countdown…

21. Guys Golf Outing




While this is not something I will be doing, I figured this will be great for the guys and provide many fun memories for them I’m sure! The guys have a bright and early morning after MNSSHP but I think they’ll enjoy themselves. They will be playing at Lake Buena Vista Golf Course, in two sets of three. They have tee times right together, so hopefully they will be able to finish without waiting too much.

Plus, this will selfishly give me some time with Lilian all to myself. I have half thought about sneaking away with her in the morning. What would you do if you could have a free morning with your daughter/child? I feel a wee bit guilty for thinking about doing this, but I think it would be a golden opportunity to have some quality mother daughter time.

Options I have thought of:
1) Hop off to a park
2) Visit another resort
3) Swim time
4) Shopping at DTD
Because I did not want to post a video of golfing , I thought I would post one of my favorite Disney YouTube Videos—The Wolfs Dance Orlando! It makes me excited for our trip and so happy!!

Hooray for 3 weeks!!!

Hmm..I don't know what I would do if I could sneak away with Madison for a morning. That's a good quesion!!

I love that youtube video! It just makes me smile every time I watch it. That is totally something my parents would have done and my sisters and I would have gladly joined in.

3 Weeks! Woo Hoo!!

If I had alone time with Emily, I would probably go to the MK with her. DTD is fun and you know how Emily likes to shop, but I think riding some rides together would make better memories! Swimming together would be fun, but you've been doing that all summer and resort hopping sounds like a good time for you, not Lilian!! She could probably care less what the other resorts theming is like! KWIM??!!

See you in the morning...early morning!!

YAY for 3 weeks! If I had a morning with just Ashlyn I would probably take her to MK or shopping at DTD. I think I'd lean towards going to the MK and having DH meet us there after golfing or something.

Yay for three weeks! I agree with the others that DTD or a park would be great for your time alone with Lilian.

3 weeks I too think it would be fun to take Lillian to a park and do all the 4 year old stuff. Meet the characters, ride the kiddie rides, play in the playgrounds. Eat ice cream. Just have fun!

Wow I didnt realize I missed so many days of your report. I am all caught up!

I cant believe its 3 weeks away. I also cant belive its been almost 1 year since our trip. Gosh reading your plans makes me think of how much I miss the feeling we had while we were there with the boys. You are going to have such an amazing time. This will be the trip you will remember forever

Here goes my comments, sorry if it gets lenghty:

I love how you are catching every detail right down to the popcorn. I love the idea of getting a popcorn set. Check out the store in DTD (i forget the name) but it has all kinds of disney kitchen items. We eat popcorn as a night time snack alot in our house too.

The guy/gal day sounds like a blast. I would give lillian the 3 options for your mommy and me time and let her pick.

I think you will have plenty of time to take the bus to AK for your am reservation. Going to the KS right after breakfast would be perfect especially because TH is right around the corner.

In MK we love cosmic rays!

A trip to disney would not be the same without watching wishes. It always brings tears to my eyes.

I loved the WS at night and illuminations was amazing and a great way to spend the last night of your trip together.

If I had to pick one dessert to look forward to I would say the smores cheescake from WCC. yummy

I cant wait to hear all the other things you are looking forward too. You are doing such a wonderful job with your PTR.

Almost 100 pages of your PTR! That's CRAZY awesome Stephanie!! I am LOVE LOVE LOVING your countdowns with the pictures and videos! How special it will be for you and Lilian! All four of your thoughts sound fun! It would be fun to hit up a park and not have the big group with you. You probably could get a lot of fun experiences. Fun to swim and REALLY fun to go shopping too!! It's so hard to choose! I PROMISE to stay all caught up now! I am so excited for you that it's only 20 days away!!!!!!!!!!

I love that you said 21 sleeps. That's how I explain things to the kids I babysit for when they ask how long until a certain day that we are doing something.

I agree with a PP in saying that I would want her to do all the 4 year old things. Go to MK and share icecream at the main street ice cream parlor. Meet the princesses. Ride her favorite ride so far together. Just soak up everything she loves about Disney already. I don't think you should feel selfish at all. Just go and do it! She's only young for a short amount of time.

I have been leaning towards the MK morning. I just wonder if I could get away with sneaking off without anyone else...

Part of it will also depend on how late we are the night before at MNSSHP but if we are up and ready to go at 9 or so, I would go for a few hours.

for celebrating with me. I think I am leaning towards MK since we will be at DTD that evening. It will depend on what time we get up since we will have a late night the night before at MNSSHP.
