You're really lucky. I love having farmer's markets here in the summer, but because I live in the city the cost is equal or more than the cost of crappy produce in the grocery stores. In my ideal life, I'd live in SoCal or somewhere that has fresh local produce year round. I hate not eating tomatoes all winter and spring, or only eating tomatoes from an aseptic carton.

I think I need to make those fried yellow heirloom tomatoes again soon, before they are unavailable in my area!!

We live in northern California, tomatoes are grown in our area. We have a yearly tomato festival even. There is nothing better than a vine ripened tomato.

I love animated emoticons.

So today I received a summons for jury duty... right in the middle of our trip! Guess that will have to be postponed!

And in other trip related news, Tinkerbell paid a visit to our house. See, she stops by when she knows we are coming to WDW or DLR, and she usually brings a small item or two for the kids. Sometimes she brings things to our hotel room while we are actually there (though that's harder to do, since she is so busy signing autographs all day).

So the other day DD wrote a note to Tink on the white board on our refrigerator. She kept saying things like "I sure hope Tinkerbell writes back!" and "When is Tinkerbell going to write back?" and then giving me the side-eye, so Tink decided to stop by while the kids were at their dad's house. It took DD a while to realize there was a note on the fridge when she came home from camp. Tink's note suggested that the kids go up to their rooms, so they ran up and found a few items to entertain them on the plane. DS got a small Lego set he had wanted, and DD got a small "Minnie's Book of Secrets" diary and 2 small American Girl activity "tote" things that have tiny paper dolls and a few activities in them.

Tink usually leaves a note, especially when she visits our house, but this time she didn't because her printer was out of pixie dust. She'll be back before we go on our trip, though, to deliver some pins for the kids and perhaps to deliver a countdown chain.

Joining in a little late but am caught up! I've enjoyed your TR so far, especially your pictures. Going to DLR as a solo side trip during a conference in San Diego in October, and looking through your photos of the Disney scenery has gotten me more excited about the trip!

Welcome!

A solo trip, that sounds nice! I had toyed with the idea of taking a solo trip this summer around another event, but I couldn't justify the cost of everything. I'll do my best to post a fat ton of photos when we return to inspire you for your trip!

We loved it. There are pools and for a fee surf lessons so that might be something for your boys.
You could do some tour stuff in the morning i.e the Midway and then head back to the Del.
There are some restaurants on Orange Ave & up at the Ferry Landing that aren't as pricey as the Del. We did eat lunch at the Del 2 days & splurged for the Sunday brunch

Thanks! And that reminds me, she needs to pay us one more visit before we go. And she needs to figure out how to smuggle a few things into our hotel room while we are there. Hmmmmm.

The Tink visit to the room might be a tough visit for her but I have heard that sometimes she visits while you are asleep.

Ugh. Let the pre-trip drama begin. DS woke up sick today with a sore throat and fever. We leave in 48 hours. I don't feel well either. Please tell me this is not happening!!! I am taking him to the doctor later and hoping he has strep because then he can get medicine and hopefully be better by Saturday, otherwise we have to cancel at least part of the trip. I'm just ready to cancel the whole thing because I can't handle this stress.

Also the dryer isn't working, so I can't do laundry. I guess that won't matter if we aren't going anywhere. I have someone coming to look at it later today, hopefully it is a quick fix.
