I think you will like parasailing. It's kind of relaxing from what I remember. It's been years though! They strap you in really well. I did let my two oldest do it at the beach this summer and they loved it!

Decided to start working on our photo book through the Photopass website. It is taking forever to upload the pictures. But then again, I have close to 550!!!

I am loving going through all of our pictures, but it's making me sooooo sad that we aren't there right now.

Sad but also happy since you have another trip booked!!!

Update on my DD's apartment: today the manager was in the apartment to get a couple of things fixed and she just kept looking around. She finally told my DD how much she loved what she had done with the place. DD told her it was all my mom and that I was the decorator. Manager kept saying how nice it was. Fast forward an hour and DD receives a text from the manager saying that she didn't have much money but she'd be willing to pay me to do her place!! Now I'd never take her money since she's a single working girl and a student but that was so nice to hear .... made me feel real good!!!

Wow! Sounds like you have some serious decoration skills!!!
I'm so glad your DD is all settled into a new place now, thank God she has a wonderful mommy looking out for her.

I am super excited for our April trip!!! It just seems soooo far away!!! I have to be patient though, it's only 9 months between trips this time and I'm already down to 7...

Last time I had to wait 17 MONTHS between trips....

I'm excited for you. Your going to love the Poly. I have managed to squeeze one night in at your favorite Akl Cl before heading over to the BC. Parasailing? Are there Alligators in that lake.Just kidding.

For all you GERMAPHOBES out there I do plan on spending hours upon hours in that wonderful hot tub at the WL. I also plan on spending many hours in the pools....you know the ones that all the kids pee in. I have been peed on, pooped on, barfed on, coughed on, spit on, and bled on. I have come in contact with every germ and virus out there. I'm ready to battle the bacteria infested hot tubs.

JEN HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Padawans, Nurses are truly some of the most amazing people on earth. Your job is not easy. Thanks for all you do! (And you so deserve to have fun on your vacation doing whatever you'd like. Enjoy!:)

Well I got a call this morning from DH's partner that they may have to do the party (which will be a surprise and HUGE event) on the last weekend of Oct, of course the weekend I moved my Oct trip to. I know the YC is already booked that first weekend of Nov, so looks like if I have to move my dates, I have to move my resort as well. UGH! I give up
That's too bad Melissa ... what other dates are you thinking of for Oct?

We are not too often at a resort that offers a hot tub .. but I certainly have taken advantage of them as well... one day last year I had the AK one all to myself!! Heaven!!

MM - have you done the photo books in the past? If so, have you been happy with the quality? Do they have Disney "decorations" and such for the pages or is it just plain with your pictures?

I have always done the photopass but haven't done a book before.

The little ones used to be up by 7am on a good morning, but usually by 6 or so. Now DD can sleep til 9-10am and DS is usually up by about 8:30am (unless it is a school morning of course). And my big DS forget it, he can sleep til 2pm.
Thank yoooooou for the compliment. And double-thanks for the bolded bit: You don't know how nice this is to hear! There IS hope I might, one day, sleep until 8am.

Your plans are making MY head spin, how are YOU managing to keep track of all this changing and potential changing?

Where does that energy come from?) Sorry, got side-tracked... Got there with all of our life's paperwork in tow. With pictures to prove we're not a fake couple (and the actual child to prove that we didn't make her up, too. ) She asked us roughly 5 questions and said, "Your green card application has been approved." We sat there with mouths agape! No more renewing visas every 3 years or so.

You nurses are made of sturdier, braver, crazier stuff than us normal people. (I'll wait in the bushes very non-stalker-like and spray you down with disinfectant when you hop out of the Human Bacteria Frappe. )

Missoutandabout OMGosh you make you make laugh. Please don't spray me down. Those chemicals are worse than the germs. Honestly I never get sick. My kids have never taken any medication. No antibiotics no tylenol nothing. It's got to be all those germs I bring home that's made them tough. I even let them run around barefoot and play in the dirt. We like to live dangerously.
