I am here for the cute kids and Disney World pictures. Also looking forward to the story corrections and color commentary from Bambi (she will be helping with this one, right? ).

As with all of your TRs, corny jokes will be expected (and tolerated).

Looking forward to the read.

Of course now he'll try and top that one.

He was technically along for the last trip in October. He sure made it a different trip for me.

Yes, he's quite picky about that. It has to be daddy, and it has to be his left shoulder.
I'll give you the left shoulder but he falls asleep just fine while Mommy is holding him.

But on all of the other trips, he's been active and engaging with all of the things going on around him. Yet, still, every time we enter a park, he has to grab a map. He collects them. He has a old plastic Chuck E. Cheese lunch box in his closet full of park maps - Disney World, Busch Gardens (which the kids not-so-affectionately call "Busch-Wacker Gardens"), Sea World, Gatorland, Six Flags, etc. If Walmart put out a map of their stores, Evan would have a copy in his map box.
Evan did more than sleep the first trip. He also took his first steps at the Magic Kingdom.

Maps. Maps. They are every where. Although, they make a very cheap souvenir and he is the happiest kid in the world.

If you keep mentioning Beverly I may get ill. Then you will have to take care of all three kids by yourself while I am recovering.

No cape. It would give them a weapon to use against me. Both the kids and my clients.

Another trip to Disney? hmmmmm good idea. I know we have one in January and March. We have been throwing out the idea of August but we have not settled it. How about the end of October as well? Oh, and December. Oh and again in March 2014 for Ryder's 2nd birthday. Oh and again...

Great intro and super cute kids! Now on with the TR. And yes I'm curious why we don't have a fancy schmancy pic of you?

Hi Barry - been waiting for your report to start.

So far it has been as entertaining as usual. The kids and Bambi look very nice all dressed up in your pictures. Can't wait to see more pictures of that day.

And I like the name of your report. Made me smile!

Thanks. All the credit for that picture goes to Bambi, she was working the camera for that photo shoot. Well, I guess I can take some credit since I was holding him. With out that, the picture would just be of him laying face down on the Boardwalk.

I'll start soon! Just in time for you to leave on your own trip.

Even I don't know that answer. As I type, they just emerge from my fingers onto the keyboard. Wait, maybe emerge isn't the right word. They just spew from my fingers. Yeah, that one sounds better.

Also interested in the Canadian content.

I did meet a very nice lady and her sweet kids. Her husband kept hanging around too.
