On the positive, anyone have a Iphone or Windows phone? I am thinking about upgrading and wanted to know what other Dis Dads thought or are using. I am with ATT now and they are largest wireless in KY. Any reviews?
My DW has the iPhone 4 with ATT - she loves it. Of course we're turning into a Mac family. Already have the Macbook Pro and an iMac in the near future...so we're kinda biased.

I have the HTC EVO with Sprint (paid by my employer) and I love it just as much as my wife's iPhone.

I've previously had two windows phones and after going Android...I'm not sure if I'd ever go back...although the new windows phones do look intriguing.

That stinks Aaron. But very glad you found out this way (& not after a rupture!). Hate to bring up a worse thought, but if you or your brothers test positive, remember that have your kids screened, too! These things have a small yearly chance of rupture, but it can happen in kids, too. Took care of 2 post-rupture just this month!

Thanks. Most of my friends have recommended Iphone and I have played with them and they look great. I had a Palm Trea Smart phone and loved it (had a keyboard on the phone). But we just got 3G last month and I disconnected the data plan and just used the Hotsync with my computer. It is old and sputtering, so it is time to upgrade. The problem is that all my computers are PCs. I have a desktop, laptop, and netbook, and don't want to start upgrading to MAC now. I don't know anyone who has the Windows phone. I may just have to go to the store and play with it and see if I like it.

Splash Moutian pic finally. Wife and I snuck these on our carry-on backpacks so the kids and friends didnt know. We sat in the back so no one could see us until the picture. The ladies at the picture place laughed so hard they gave it to us for free in exchange to use it as the display photo.


From bottom l to r to top Christian, Libby, Marriane, Kris, Nana, Robin, Wife (Wendy) and Me (Mark). Robin's face kills me he was so excited!

That is great!!!! I have been laughing for 2 minutes straight. My wife wanted to know what was so funny, so I showed her and now she is hysterical.

Thanks for sharing!!

To all the rest of the Dads, I have started on my trip report. It is in its' infant stages, but will try to not drag it out forever. Is it wrong, that I am trying to figure out a way to back in less than a year?
Welcome back! I have added the TR to the first page

I think our wives may be related! My DW came home from shopping the other day and she scored a very nice Tink hoodie. She was sooo excited when she found it... then she admitted to me that when she first found it she had two reactions... love at first sight... and mad at me for getting her into Disney!

That is AWESOME! Getting those floaties on must have been a real task, though! Can't believe you got something for FREE! At Disney!

Ummm... you confused me, Ron... You have to start the TR first, then add the link to your sig. Head over to the TR forum and start one there (http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18). Then PM me and I'll walk you through getting the link in your sig.

I've got the older Iphone and really like it. It works well as long as you are along a main road or metropolitan area. Since I travel to some more rural areas I don't always have great coverage in some spots. I hook it up to my PC along with my kids iTunes accounts. Works great.

To summarize, the Splash Mt. pic is hilarious!

Now for some (possible) bad news. I spent Saturday at a friend's house. Her munchkins are the same age as mine. We were there for the afternoon, playing, watching Tron (the original), and making a styrofoam Gingerbread house. Yesterday, she called to say her oldest was sick in the belly, spraying out of both ends. And, keep an eye out for my kids.

and you'll see from the signature that we leave for WDW on Saturday.
i really hope we don't have a "cheese ball yak attack" during the 1,000 miles from the STL to Orlando. That will make for one LONG ride...

Those pics are awesome - Your wife seems to be quiet funny. She appeared randomly in the pics of us with the kids.
