There will, however, be no more tanning bed tanning before our trips for me. I had three spots taken and biopsied yesterday, with more biopsies to come later next month. :-( I abused my skin too much when I was younger. If I want to spin this positively, however, I guess I can use the need for shade as a fantastic excuse to rent a cabana! LOL How's that for lemons into lemonade!
Lol!! But not!! You know they are actually trying to pass a law to keep anyone under 18 out of the tanning beds. I personally think its a great idea. I am not fair skinned but I found that if I spend an extended period of time in the sun (15 minutes or more) I break out in hives!! So SPF 1,000,000 for me! I am kinda scared of spray tan as well.. What do they put in that stuff to make us tan!??
You deserve the cabana ALL DAY! Get it while it's shaded!!

Carl my dad became a grandfather at 44. He loves that all the ladies fawn over him at the playground because he's a young grandpa.

Is Disney ever going to add a hot tub to the Poly?

We've always wanted to stay there, I love the theming, but that's a deal killer for us

I wish I never would have started. I think I went into a tanning bed for the first time at 18, before senior prom. I continued to tan pre-summer for the next couple of years, and when I lived in San Diego, I tanned year round. I wish I could take it all back. I can remember being 21ish and saying "Well, I may be ruining my skin but when I'm 30 I'll be so old I won't care anyway." I'd like to go back in time in Doc's Delorian and kick my own butt. I'm 35 now, and I DO care.

I do have a brand of spray tan I like, the Loreal Sublime Bronze Airbrush. It's super easy to use and it doesn't streak. It is stinky though, they all are. So, if you are roaming around WDW in August and see me pass by, and you wonder what that awful smell is, it's me, LOL!!!

Life on the opposite end....I'm 43 and have a 4 year old son! Why don't ladies fawn all over me at the playground?...I guess when you are the dad they can smell the fatigue and leave you alone. Ah the subtleties between a 42-44 year old “young grand dad” and "old dad". Regardless, my wonderful DW would shoe them away....
All kidding aside, congratulations Carl and thank you for keeping this post supplied with pictures and stories!

Congratulations!

Carl, your new grandson is a real cutie! He's the second adorable newborn I have seen today. Those of us who started late are still waiting and in no hurry! I do worry that by the time my two are settled and ready--I'll be too old to babysit! Was Liam born today? If so, he shares the date with the Tiki family's latest addition! Could be a future Polynesian connection there. . .

Enjoy him and start planning now for that first visit to Disney with him.

I noticed you have a DD15 and you said she would rather stay home. get her on dis, let her read my DD17 Pre-trip and trip reports. Maybe let her take a friend with her. Disney is something all my teens look forward to. I offer them the opportunity to get involved in the planning. Show them videos on YouTube and offer them their freedom to go to a park on their own. (with cell check-ins every hour or so) if this is her first trip she may think its all about the dumbo ride and knows nothing about the pool, the resort, the massive droves of other teens, and all the French fries!! NO ONE IS TOO OLD OR TOO COOL FOR DISNEY! My teens become full fledge 9 year olds the minute our driver shows up at the door for our trip to the airport!
You know, getting her on the DIS is a really good idea, thanks! I think it might help her get excited. I try to include her in the panning but she rolls her eyes at me. However, I was watching a Disney Parks special the other night and I totally caught her getting into it so there is hope! She has been to WDW before but not since 2005. We have been vacationing at all-inclusive island resorts the past few years and she really likes that especially the teen clubs so I think she is just trying to sway me back to the islands.

Good luck with the biopsies. It does sound like you just have to have a cabana now!

I started young with my daughter so I'm likely to be a young Grandma as well. Problem is I started over again and have a 3 year old son in addition to my teen so that will make things interesting!

It doesn't look likely, unless there is a REAL major overhaul of the resort or DVC is added somehow. The pool area was redone in 2001-ish...if one wasn't added then, we have to think it's just not in the plans. I was at the Poly in the summer of 2010 when they were starting to install electricity for the cabanas. I got hopeful at that time they might be putting in a hot tub, but no. I rationalize no hottub by reminding myself of the massive amount of GERMS in those things. People soup...eeeew!

OMG-----do you have a live cam in my house???? R U Watching my keystrokes???? I actually WROTE a few more sentences about how I love the smell of newborn babies especially burying my nose in their neck. I was gonna ask you to take a sniff for me. I erased b4 posting thinking everyone would think I was a freak. Seems we are both "sniffing freaks" Must be that PA connection in our blood. (My Dad grew up in Edystone right outside Philly). Yes siree, I love to smell newborn babies

Another baby sniffer here. . I LOVE the smell of babies, and I smell them so hard that DH acusses me of being a baby "scent stealer". I don't want anymore of my own, but I sniff when I get the chance!

I noticed you have a 3 and 15 year old. gotta be hard!
I hope your DD15 can get into the spirit. It really is a lot of fun for independent teens! If she can just find some other teens at the resort or in the parks!

Ok, I checked in yesterday morning and then missed all of the excitement! Congratualtions Carl!! Liam's a doll!

Good luck with the biopsies crostorfer. I love your attitude - and I'm sure you will love the cabana. We rented one last fall and DH put it on our must do list for our next trip.
