Does Pods ever say, "Enough with the photos already"? I hope not because we LOVE you sharing your trips/life with us.

Occasionally- not too much. He used to, but he realized he just made life worse for himself when he opened his pie-hole about the pictures, so now he just rolls his eyes. Really, he says he's just really thankful for digital!! I used to use film, ya know...

Hey- it's the Disney Cruise. Kids mostly laugh, but sometimes they cry. I'm pretty sure we're all ok with that- it's when they cry at 6 am EVERY FREAKIN DAY OF VACATION for 20 minutes while the parents do next to nothing...THAT'S the problem. I mean, they couldn't get this kid up and out to the pool deck for her tantrum? Even once? It's not like they hadn't heard it before- it wasn't a surprise every day at 6 am unless they have some SERIOUS memory issues! Please don't feel bad if you're boys cried a few times- that's not anything unusual!

And thanks for reading and saying you like it!

love the site, will remember that for next time. We did Paradise and had the trampoline and iceberg... kids loved the trampoline but they couldnt go up the iceberg, heck I couldnt climb the damn iceberg even if Leonardo Decaprio was waiting for me at the top and I was Rose waiting to get my necklace back LOL

Maybe your boys will be able to climb it being they will be bigger and more fit then me LOL

Its so odd that we were all on the same trip, even in the same spots, and had a total different experiences. Nachi was a very interesting place. I think I either asked you or Jen if you all were even there cause we were on AAAAAAAAAAALLLL the way on the other side. Then the one time that everyone did come together, I was in the sky... go figure!

Did you all try any other food than the nachos?

Most of the kids (they had 6) were older and got wind of the fact that she was going to take them all to Ohio, and they took off the night she was planning to take them- the two younger ones weren't as lucky. But he (my cousin-in-law) actually FINALLY got full custody. The kids hated their mom- and then, she died. And when she did- they didn't even care. It was so, so sad, I felt so bad for all of them when this was going on.



We usually split up because that's the only way for the other boys to do golf or the water parks (things my oldest wouldn't do), this was the first time we split to save some $ and give Pods some down time. It worked well! He was a happy camper!

And hey! Sometimes sippin Tequila is good! I can promise you it works no matter how you drink it!




Well, I like pretty much everything- so Tyler gets that from me. Not that Pods is really fussy, either. But they all eat fish- we had it twice last week.



F&W usually starts at the very beginning of October and ends the beginning of November. It used to start the End of September, but last year it went back to the old schedule and ran through sometime in November (the 8th, maybe?). You will be fine in the middle of October.

ANd speaking of BWV....I found out this morning Disney passed on our contract!! We close 1/20 on 100 BWV Points!!! WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
:w oohoo:

So excited for you, Ellen! Just think of all the extra days you can have with those 100 pts!

Your Cozumel day looks fabulous!!!! I would love to go back to Cozumel and stay for a week at the beach!

Nice Beach! I love that all inclusive idea. Very smart. And the fact that they limit the people on the beach and you have your own waiter. Love that! Really wish I was there right now instead of waking up to this stinkin snow and an unplowed driveway.

OK - now I have to go outside to see if I can get the car out and go to work!

The King of the Forest

This morning the boys have a snow day- although the 6 or so inches we got is NOTHING compared to the 30" we got after Christmas (funny how everything is relative, huh?)....Anyway, look who is hanging out behind my house this morning...









Isn't he amazing? He's a four point buck- and he is all by himself. It's just like Bambi- all the does and fawns hang in groups- he's the stud, solitary and on his own every time I've ever seen him. I wonder how old he is? He is hanging out all snuggled in the snow like it's a blanket. What a great thing to see.... Too bad my fence is in the way!

Beautiful! I see deer all the time in the park I (sometimes) jog in but I have NEVER seen a male! Always moms and babies. He has such a big nose!!

I know, isn't it funny? I woke up this morning and the sun was out and, compared to our Christmastime snow, this sees like nothing! That said, I still haven't gone out to shovel yet....

that is very cool. But be grateful that you have the fench because he would eat all of your shrubs to nothing if he had a chance.

Ok I feel I should introduce myself for 2 reasons: 1. I feel like I'm stalking you since I've been reading your whole TR since this weekend, reading it to the DH and showing him your fantastic pics. Ps- you should know how awesome they look on a HD IPad! Zoom and all!

2. You are like my NJ WDW soul sister. I love your sense of humor and how you travel. In my family they call me The Sargent when we travel, especially to WDW.

The picture of that buck is amazing. We live on an acre and we call our backyard The Thicket because it's wooded and full of deer who are now burrowed in about 3 fet of snow since last nights' 20 additional inches, but we have NEVER seen a buck like that. Way cool!

Anyway, lovin your TR and waiting to read the rest! Thanks for keeping me laughing!

Sandy

Hope he comes and visits us, but he looks very comfy behind your house!

I remember that they had trouble getting up that iceberg-that's what I kept telling them to try to turn them off to it, that it was REALLY hard...but they I think need to see for themselves!

I liked Nachi- I just wish they would have had that thing in the water for my kids to climb on, as they're a little past the sandcastle stage, umfortunately. Yes, we had a lot of food- I'll get to that next!

YEA BABY!!! Mostly I'm excited I'll have points to use to cruise occasionally without giving up a WDW vacation. ESPECIALLY if the cruise goes out of NYC to Bermuda....wouldn't THAT be nice!!

Your Cozumel day looks fabulous!!!! I would love to go back to Cozumel and stay for a week at the beach!
I like it there- the water is such a gorgeous color!!!
