I love that outfit...it's a perfect fit for Claire...she is on Island time. Always!

Yes, chrome just doesn't work at all.
And the email notifications are kind of spotty too. I think to get them working right, you have to go into your subscribed threads and start reading. Thats what I did (and cleared cookies to stay logged in, doesn't work for Chrome though) and then the emails started coming again.

What a nice park area. I love touring houses! When we lived in Georgia (and right before the housing bubble burst) you could go to open houses for new houses all weekend long. It was nice to go and dream about living in a huge house and what each room would be!

Between the cruise talk with you and Lisa, I started looking over at the DCL site- just playing around. I really would like to do one in a few years when Catie is older!

I LOVE cruising. My goal is to get on the Fantasy eventually.

I love touring big houses. We used to go to the parade of homes in our area each year. I haven't been to one since I had Claire. I used to think it would be so awesome to live in a mansion...now a days I would rather travel and keep my basic, but nice home!

Beautiful Easter pictures!!!

I did see that Dooney!!! I'm really excited about that pattern just because they seem to have left their "usual Disney Dooney styles" (tote, wristlet, crossbody) and are now offering a wider selection of bags!!! I'm waiting for larger bags to be released because I want to buy one to use as a carry-on. I'm thinking they need more satchels & duffles!!! (I know they have the one in the sketch pattern but I need something that isn't white. The airlines/airplane always ruin my bags!)

Usually with the releases of the Dooneys, they'll be up on the Disney Store website about 2-4 weeks after initially released at the parks. They are sometimes slower though with the DL exclusive or WDW exclusive bags. I don't know why! I'm sure they make a ton of $$$ off of them -- they should put them ALL up on the website immediately!

I also just now saw your post about the puzzle! I have no idea how I managed to skip a few pages of your report (probably because I've been DISing in the middle of the night!) That puzzle really IS hard, isn't it?! I remember getting frustrated with it & always making my mom put it together!!! I hope Claire doesn't get as frustrated as I did & make you do it because its so hard to know what to put where -- all those stinkin pieces look identical!!!

Your cruise plans sound so exciting!!! It was nice to see the pics from last year's cruise again! I still love that pic of your mom & Claire looking out the window for the cruise ship at port!!! Airfare is craaaazy ridiculous right now! We only have a few airlines that fly direct to MCO -- I'm taking a gamble this year and waiting until 30-45 days out. We'll see how that goes! I'm seriously hoping with the election year, they decide to lower gas prices & then the flight prices will drop! One can hope!!!

You got some nice pictures of the girls at that park. It looks like a really nice one, too.

Yeah for being under 200 days! If I change my vacation to Thanksgiving I am still over 200 days

Your going to have so much fun on your trip especially Claire since she will have other kids to play with.

That mansion was beautiful I wouldn't mind living there. That is if someone gave it to me

Thanks for posting the Easter and weekend out pictures. The girls look so cute in all of them. The park looks absolutely beautiful. You already know how I feel about snakes so I would have been a chicken too.

Beautiful picture of your three kids! I've seen on that on Facebook and just kept forgetting to comment!

Love the pic of the two girls together too - and what a pretty park! I want that house! (and if I were rich enough to own it, I could hire someone to clean it!)

Do you guys have a verandah again for this cruise?

And, can you get me a picture of the Aquaduck sign?

That bridge is really pretty. That was added a few years back. They have really been doing nice things to the park. A lot of the trails now have little boardwaks so you can still walk even when it floods in the area.

I don't have the dooney duffle, but I have the big sized purse and I used that as my personal bag this past trip and I stuffed a heck of a lot of stuff in there. LOL! My camera equiptment was all in there.

I have to admit that we haven't worked on the puzzle for several weeks now. I just haven't had the time and she hasn't bugged me about it.

I do hope the flights drop.

I know the feeling...I still have a long ways to go. but I might be shaving 1 day off me ticker......
Little Abby has been talking about the Mickey boat randomly lately. It's so cute. Gail (my sis) said she started talking about it in church the other day.
I would love to live there too, but I need someone to clean it and pay the taxes on it as well.

Yes, a verandah again. I love them. Though I would be willing to have any room on the ship.

I think I might be able to swing taking another AquaDuck pictures. You can never have enough...ahd here is one just for you now!



And just for fun...here's my lighthouse!

I know I'm slacking on my planning updates....so before I go on with the cruise days...I am going to tell you about what my new flying down plan is.


Yep, already making changes. It's been brought to my attention that it appears the last Halloween party at WDW is going to be held on Nov. 2. Well my plan is to fly down the 3rd, possibly the 2nd if I got a good rate.

No "great" rates are out yet, but I can fly out of Columbus on Southwest for a decent rate...and change it to a lower price if it drops. on the 2nd. I talked to my sister in Columbus and she said she would be happy to have Claire and I come down the night of the 1st and spend the night and then take us to the airport at the buttcrack of dawn...YES... the flight LEAVES at 7:20 AM. I have never flown out so early EVER, but then we could get to the resort, rest up, hopefully and go to the party in the evening. I am 99% sure I am going to do this.

I haven't booked a room ,and I think I will wait for now and see if any discounts come out, but most likely I'll stay at a value.
I have to double check, but I think I can take ME back to the airport then on the 3rd and meet up with the family and head over to the port area with them then and go on as planned.

I may never have a chance to go to MNSSHP again, so I might as well since it's seems to be perfect timimg.

I'm pretty excited about this.

You are going to LOVE MNSSHP! We have been twice and it was awesome. It definitely is worth the early flight. Guess when ours leaves on Saturday ..... 6.05am!

And NO, you are not too early checking flight prices, as I am already checking for February next year.

BTW - Tom is going to scan the navigators. He didn't have time today, but HOPES to be able tomorrow.

I like that plan! I loved MNSSHP, and I am seriously looking forward to doing it again this year! I love flying Southwest for that reason, being able to get credit (which I can use on another trip) makes me happy
