I do have some from my first WDW trip though...
From left to right, it's my mom, sister (Kassi), me (Kim), and brother (Gary)
You guys are sooooo cute! What a great pic! I was in my 30's for my first trip so that pic wouldn't be very epic for me!

All three of us starting crying and saying things like, "But we don't want to look at it from a stupid parking lot. We want to go into Disney World." This continued from the car to the ticket counter, to the ferry, all the way into walking into the Magic Kingdom. My mom said that we did not stop until we saw the castle.
What a great memory.

We actually have video from our first visit (1986) which my dad took with his high tech (at the time) video camera! The thing was huge and still had reels of film. He had them transferred to DVD several years ago, but I love watching those videos....you could see way back when, I just "got" Disney.

Well, time to turn in...I spent the evening actually catching up on DVR from back in October!!!!

DH has a rare day off tomorrow...and you know what he's doing...he's having DD6 get a day off from Kindergarten and he's taking her shoe shopping!! Her favorite past time. He feels that he doesn't spend enough time with her (DD8 is a MAJOR daddy's girl), so he set aside the day for her...she is so excited!!!
What a sweet man More pics would be great!

These prom pics bring back a funny memory for me. My little brother's best friend's GF dumped him the day before prom. I had been out of HS for a few years already, but I told him I'd go with him so he wouldn't miss out. I wasn't shelling out big bux for this, so I hit the thrift store and found a really cute slinky black dress to wear. Only problem was that long and pastel was in that year. Since I was older, nobody knew me, and I was very obviously inappropriately dressed, by the end of the night the rumor mill had me as the hooker he had hired as his date.

Good times.
OMG!!! Somehow "walk this way" by Aerosmith comes to mind.... Your date must of had a great time showing you off...you hussy you...

Jeanette - I havent looked at the rates lately, but if you are looking off property, we have stayed at Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa on several occasions. We have even shared a 4 bd with our cousins. All the masters have Jacuzzi tubs The location was really central to US and WDW.

Thank you I just love the look on my mom's face. I'm assuming it's from dealing with three crying kids and people giving her nasty looks. She said people kept looking at her like they were terrible parents because we were crying.

It is. I actually remember several things from that trip. I believe I was 5.

I am the middle child. I always like to get lay in the floorboard of the back seat for some reason. Then after my mom got her Dodge Ram Charger, I would sometimes get in the back with the luggage. Honestly, the middle seat was preferable to the one behind my dad. He's always been..(thinking of best way to say this)......had issues with gas. No one wanted to sit right "in the danger zone."

did you select the "IMG" link? once you do it automatically copies the link then you simply paste it into your post...

Maybe you accidentally erased the [IMG] code??

Kook--I am so glad it's been corrected. Whew!

I'd be glad to help with any Jiko questions. It's our favorite restaurant at WDW. The food is fabulous, great wine list, and the staff are first rate! It's well worth the price, we think. Are you bringing your daughter? If you are, you might want to consider asking to sit at the cooking place. (Just request it on your dining reservation.) There are about 10+? seats that face the smaller kitchen in the restaurant, called the cooking place. They make the pizzas and apps there, and they will chat with you now and then, it's fun.
Sitting at the regular tables is very nice, too. They really make you feel at home, welcome either place. Let me know if I can help with anything else. We've tasted quite a bit of their menu, let me know if I can help with more specific questions on menu items or wine recommends.

I'm loving all the RC pictures!!! What cute families we RCers have!!! Someday I will have to learn how to use photobucket!!!

Jeanette when did that ticker change? Did I miss something?

So for November .... now that DH and Sam aren't going I can be more flexible on where DD and I stay. All I know for sure is it will be a DVC studio and it won't be BLT. I could book SSR now just so I have something booked but I know DD really likes staying at AKV so that's where I hope we end up .... of course I wouldn't mind a lodge split .... AKV/VWL! So if I book now I'll just have to call MS at the 7 month window and I'd much rather do it all online so I can look at all my options! So for now here I sit ... waiting .... waiting .... waiting ....
