Catching up on all the ups and downs of your trip.

The pictures are amazing... I've told everyone that I will be taking a gazillion photos during our trip in September because I don't want to miss a single detail... it's going to be one very thick Shutterfly album!

Despite the daily drama, it seems like you found some happy times in the Happiest Place! I hope the medical issues will soon be resolved.

Looking forward to reading more!

Thank you! You can never have too many pics of Disney!

We had our moments. The medical issues went on for the remainder of the trip and I didn't get them resolved until after I was home.

Wow!!! Fantastic, amazing pictures from the party. I love your camera, too!!!

I love your shots with the princesses and princess, especially the one with Flynn and Rapunzel.

The parade pictures are SPECTACULAR!!! So clear.

And the fireworks shots are more than just "ok"! Beautiful. And no witch hats.

I am always discouraged by the clueless jerks who really don't pay attention (or care) about others. Once, in the preshow for Muppets, a family with two small boys and a very tall dad came in late, said "I hope the kids can see" and then stepped right in front of my boys. But they redeemed themselves by stopping right in the middle of the theatre when instructed to move all the way to the end.

Bummer about your first fight with your husband, although entirely understandable: Lots of excitement and exhaustion and worry in the past few days! I'm glad to hear the two of your worked it out at the end of the night.

Great pictures and TR as always Caitlin! I LOVE the 1st pic with you and Rapunzel and Flynn. She was very intent looking!
Don't worry about those Disney fights - we've been married 26 years and last year at Disney we had a biggie Must be the stress of all those people

I had to keep the camera above my head and what I got was what I got

Oh brother. We have gotten lost a bunch of times, but never in Celebration. Yikes! But cuddling is good!

Love the pictures. They turned out perfect and the fact that the road is wet makes them look even better. Lovely fireworks! So glad you were my last stop for the day before I go to sleep!

Our last full day begins....

Hi All! Sorry it's been so long between posts but life has been keeping us very busy! Sunday was Caitlin's final Sunday worshipping at our church (this coming Sunday morning is commencements) so as you can imagine it was a very emotional service for us. Caitlin has been raised in that church so it truly is her extended family. Then that afternoon we had her Going Away/Grad Party. It was themed to her beloved Detroit Tigers and it was a lot of fun. Many good memories were made
Today was her last day of finals and now on to Graduation!
And of course we have our trip coming in just 11 days!

But now back to Sept.....

I woke up around 6am to the sound of a text message coming through. It was my lovely daughter saying they were up and getting ready to meet me at Epcot for rope drop. I got up and saw that my dad was already awake. He told me he wasn't feeling well and he was going to spend the morning in the room. (can you believe another person on this trip?! It would turn out to be kidney stones that would plague him for months)

I got ready and headed to the bus stop about 8:30. I had good bus karma and was at Epcot in no time. I arrived just as Caitlin and Andrew did and was happy to see she was walking. (well she had to walk because the wheelchair had been left in the car..but still I thought she looked good)

However, she told me the walk from the bus stop had exhausted her so they needed to rent a wheelchair. So at rope drop the kids hit the wheelchair rental place (12$ in case you're curious) and I did the run to Soarin for Fastpasses.

I got the FP and then met them at Nemo.















From there we went to Figment and then over to




Of course Andrew had to ride that one solo. He was so excited when he came off that ride! He kept saying " Wow! I almost blacked out! That was awesome!"

While Andrew was on his mission to space we enjoyed the Jammitor's show









They were great!

When Andrew got back it was time for Soarin so we headed over there. While the kids went flying I went and got breakfast at Sunshine Seasons.

I ordered this for Caitlin



and I got this


It is actually the kids French toast meal but it was the perfect size and it was sooo good!

I somehow posted this without meaning too so I guess I will stop here. I will let Caitlin tell you about Andrew's visit to Club Cool and his first taste of Beverly...

Thanks for reading!

So exciting that Catilin is done school and will be graduating in a few days. So many life changes to celebrate. You'll be OK mom!

That kid's french toast looks yummy and it really does look like the perfect size.

You are exactly right!

It is all met with very mixed emotions. We raised her to have wings and of course we want her happiness more than anything but...we sure will miss her

That was probably my favorite breakfast that vacation. I was very pleasantly surprised!

His reaction to Beverly was a little unusual

Ooh, a Tigers themed going away/grad party...love it! Congrats to Caitlin on graduating! And yay for your trip being so soon!

"I almost blacked out." That is awesome. Though maybe it's even more reason for me to NOT try Mission:Space.

Nice update. I have never seen the Jammitors before.

Thanks. We had all baseball themed decorations and the menu was inspired by the offerings at the stadium.

Yeah, I don't understand how that would be a good thing

Nice update. I have never seen the Jammitors before.
Thank you. The Jammitors are really good and a lot of fun. I just noticed you have your new TR started. I don't know how I missed that but I need to head over and get caught up!
