The Good, The Bad, & the Nuts! ...ANYONE GOING MAY 8-15?

Welcome to my “not really a” trip report. I have tried to to PTRs and TRs in the past but they always fizzle out. So instead I am going to try (no promises) to post pictures of our past trips and with little explanations, let them speak for themselves. If I remember any nice little anecdotes along the way I will throw them in.

This will get off to a fairly slow start because…..well because I don’t actually have the pictures for our most recent trips on my computer. I have photopass pics (not many) and a couple ride pics that I scanned in. But the bulk of our pictures are on DH’s computer. That is downstairs in his “command center”. He has 2 or 3 computers down there plus half a dozen external hard drives so I wouldn’t know where to begin to look for anything. On top of that – he is moving the command center upstairs to middle sons old bedroom (he moved downstairs to oldest sons old bedroom – oldest son in last year of college and says he won’t be moving back home he gave middle son his old bed and old room so now he has nowhere to come back to if he changes his mind ) So with the equipment moving upstairs….soon (that’s another story….) it could be awhile before I have access to our pictures.

Here is a teaser




This is our June 2010 family trip. The four boys in the front row are my son Ryne - hidden in his shirt (middle – 19), Sean (oldest 20 at the time, 21 now), Ethan (a friend of the boys that we brought with us – 18), and Mark (youngest – 16 at the time, 17 now).

And here they are again…..




Yes, they are nuts!

They rode several times trying to do different silly faces for the camera. These were the two they wound up liking the best. I think they are actually in the wrong order because it looks like Mark is hanging on in the 2nd picture....he's not one of those "put your hands in the air on the scary ride" kinda guys, he's the "hold on and hope I don't die" kind. I think the other boys eventually got him to let go of his death grip on the handles a little bit for the camera


Another disclaimer….I am trying to type this in word and add pics and transfer it over…..don’t know if it will work. It may take me a little bit to get the hang of things.


And, good or bad, here is your guide for this trip back through time…..





Me (Tanya 43 at the time, 44 now….can you tell we have a lot of summer birthdays???) and DH (Danny 56). We were at the Wishes Dessert party which had PhotoPass set up for pics of the night time castle .

Hi Dan

I don't know how many times they rode ToT We were there 8 days. If I ever get to see the trip pics I may find even more redneck pics of their adventures. But these two they wrote down the numbers and asked us to see if we could go view the pics and maybe get one for them. Did you know that in the ride picture packages that you can get the 2 5x7's with 2 different poses in the same package??? I didn't - I stood there looking at the 2 poses trying to decide when the CM finally told me that I could get them both

I have one of them on Splash Mountain too.....but I fugured I better pace myself since I have such limited resources

I'm here!

Love the ToT pictures. It's my favorite ride. I've never been able to poise for it. I usually have the biggest grin on my face. I love to loose my stomach.

I wonder if it's he's spelling ability or his typing? I'm think a combination of both. I'm a terrible speller thank goodness for spell check.

More people!! Thanks for joining. Don't get discouraged if this starts pretty slow. We are going away for the week-end. That may actually work in my favor though. We are going down to where my oldest son goes to college - DH & all the boys are going to a football game, I am going to be barricaded in the hotel room with free wifi . And even better - we are taking one of DH's laptops instead of mine....so maybe I can find some trip pictures on there . He takes a computer with us on vacation to download all the cameras to at night, then when he's home he saves them onto externals hard drives....but hopefully he left them on the laptop too. So maybe when I am left alone for a couple (or more???) hourse I can get some uploaded to PB Just for the record - me not going to the football game is my idea - I have no interest in football (that could cost me readers ), I have even less interest in walking the distances he says it is from where he can park to where the stadium is, and being alone in a nice clean quiet hotel room seemed like a good option. Especially when you add on the free wifi

Here are a couple more shots from our June trip.


Here is Danny & I on Splash Mountain





And my boys - once again playing it up for the cameras



If you look, you will see that Mark is holding on with one hand - still not brave enough to totally let loose. And the guy in the back Maybe he should have joined my boys on the Tower - he would fit right in with them

This trip I don't know if I will find any pics of us all together. I use a scooter down there, my 3 boys have been so many times that they all know what they want to do and don't want to do. This was Ethan's first trip so we were encouraging the boys to take him on as much as possible. We, on the other hand, were going for a more leisurely trip. June is hot I don't particularly like hot. But with the boys schedules the way they are, if we want to take them we have to go when its hot. That doesn't mean we can't let the 16 - 20 year old set go out and conquer the heat while us....uh.....slightly older folks....move a little slower and find a little more air conditioning. We did meet up for some meals together. But for the most part they had their trip and we had ours.

We are leaving today to drive 4 1/2 hours to the town where my son goes to college. There are 4 of us going and we will be gone 2 nights. We have 3 suitcases, 2 boxes, 1 (maybe 2) coolers, and a computer bag....plus any gadget stuff the boys bring. Can you imagine what 6 of us going to Didney for 8 nights can accumulate??

Actually, although it's massive, it's not as bad as it sounds. Two of the suitcases are because DH & I are staying at a hotel and the boys are staying at Seans. The 3rd suitcase is my dialysis machine - and the 2 boxes are my fluid. One cooler for sodas on the way down - and the other for sandwiches - unless we can fit them in with the pop, or fit a bigger cooler that will hold both. Quick little getaways aren't so quick anymore.

Thanks! We're here. Got the boys dropped off with Sean, came back to the hotel and got settled in, ate supper, and now playing on the computer. Tomorrow we'll go over and see Sean's apartment and go out for lunch, then they will bring me back to the hotel while they go to the football game. Then I won't have someone asking me every 10 minutes what I am doing
