EXACTLY what he is doing- trying to stay cool- he has a very hard time, though- he is one of those naturally smiley types (can't IMAGINE where he gets it from....). You should see his big s eatin grin when he makes a good play or has a big hit in baseball.

I had the best glass of cab while sitting on a rocking chair and just enjoying the relaxing view. I got homesick and called our parents while sitting on a bench in the back walk at VWL. I can't wait to actually stay there, and now that we are in the South, it will feel different and exotic!

You are right- it will feel like coming home to you now- in a completely different way!

Dinner at Kona Café looks amazing! I will have to remember how filling the sushi is.

The rolls are VERY big- and I actually ate one of the pieces before I remembered to take the pic.

How fun the way you surprised Tim! His reaction is priceless! So fun to see his happy face - great seats, BTW. AND you look fabulous!
I was totally out of my mind excited about the seats- of course, I bought them before half the Yankees went on the DL. I spent half the gae asking tim who the players were- of course, he knew them all.

Thank you!!! I did feel pretty super-mom-ish!

Hi Ellen! Finally chiming in - better late than never! As usual - great report so far! Love that the title is "Mommy and me..." - I can't wait to take my little one on a mommy and me cruise!
Okay...gotta say that the Yankee surprise was so over the top! I love that you captured his reaction on video - he's trying to be so cool but you can tell he is just dying with excitement inside! My sisters family are such huge Yankee fans! Can't wait to tell them about this! They will be so jealous!
My next trip to WDW will include some of the wonderful food you have photographed or spoke about! Some of the ones I want to try are those Mickey waffles with strawberries and whipped cream, the Tonga Toast or Pancakes, the duck breast...okay everything but the sushi!! Not a fan.
That rain was everything I think! I know it caused our plane on Saturday to be delayed quite a while.
Looking forward to more!

Bette

Wow, just started yesterday and already up to page 4?!

Looking forward to it!

Going back to read now...

ETA- I'm back--

Awesome first night's dinner, Kona Cafe is on my list of places I want to try (a lot of places are LOL) for both Breakfast and dinner. I really want to try those Macadamia nut pancakes and the Tonga toast.

Love the surprise reveal video! He reminds me of my Nephew, I guess all boys that age probably are the same, so contained in their excitement LOL

I remember the one with Tyler's surprise, too, can't believe that was 2 years ago! where does the time do?

you definitely deserve supermom!!!!!!!!!!!

And you are making me really want to do a mom and me trip with each boy.

The funniest part for me was when he ripped the tag off of the T shirt without even looking at it first. Classic!

Love the fact he already had a Yankees shirt on.

The videos are priceless.

And...backtracking as I read the first update on my phone and never posted...

That sushi looked SO good

I love WL but the villas themselves, largely as I am a view junkie, aren't my favorite but I do adore the entire vibe there.


Great job pulling off the surprise, I love it!

We usually manage to order one each of those 3 things and then share. What day are you going? I will be there with 3 of my girlfriends on Saturday morning, May 4th....
Well, silly, silly me! I didn't even think that we could order both and share them! Good idea! But thanks for the heads up on the sweetness of the Tonga Toast, I think that breakfast might be to early for too sweet for me.
We are going to be there the morning of the 3rd, a day too early. Maybe we'll run into you gals somewhere else...

It's wonderful that you lined up such an awesome suprise - you must be the coolest mom right now!

Can't wait to read about the rest of you trip
10 nights in December? That must be the absolute BEST time to be there! I am very envious. I am also envious of your cruise in a little over a month- can't wait to do that one day!

That is SO EXCITING!!!!! And I am sure your 12 year old will be thrilled- just remember, even if he isn't showing it on the outside, he is on the inside.

Hi Bette! Thanks for coming to read! I hope you do put Kona on your must do list next time- especially for breakfast- it's a really good experience!

The weather was so weird on this vacation, wasn't it? I was not complaining, I was happy to be there irregardless, but it was a little wild at times, that's for sure!

Don't forget the Samoan at breakfast, too- also really delicious! It is definitely my favorite breakfast in WDW- I have already decided I'll be having the Mac nut pancakes 2 weeks from today- last visit I had pumpkin pancakes, they were a special.

Love the surprise reveal video! He reminds me of my Nephew, I guess all boys that age probably are the same, so contained in their excitement LOL

They make me crazy these too cool boys!!

I remember the one with Tyler's surprise, too, can't believe that was 2 years ago! where does the time do?
I don't know- time is flying by- Tyler is half way done with high school- and I feel like I was lining up at preschool waiting for him to come out about 5 minutes ago. So sad. You really need to treasure every moment.

Yea! Such a boy thing!!

Love the fact he already had a Yankees shirt on.

I know! I was laughing when I saw him get dressed that morning. I had mine on too, well hidden under my sweatshirt.

The videos are priceless.

What- you have something against dumpsters? They deserve love too! I am big on views, too, so I get what you're saying. Really love the vibe there, though.


Great job pulling off the surprise, I love it!
So last nite I was trying to catch up on your thread- and I got to the part about Denny and freaked! So glad he is ok! I was texting with ME last night, I felt so bad because we had texted while she was away in HHI, and I was so busy laughing about the message she sent me, (Dottie who works there said hello and tell Ellen to get her a$$ back down here )- meanwhile there was all this going on! Terrible! I need to find more time to DIS- I am missing EVERYTHING!

So...back at Tiger Stadium, the BP was winding down...





And the game started-

Ichiro Suzuki


Brett Gardner-


Andy Pettitte was pitching-








Travis Hafner



Kevin Youkilis- man, does he have a crazy swing! I bet growing up there must have been coach after coach who tried to change it- but SOMEBODY must have said leave it alone! If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Because he really connects with that ball-



Click to play-


The dugout-



Well, our favorite boys of summer got their clocks cleaned that day, but we still had fun- and Timmy thought it was AWESOME!!!!







So glad I got to do that with my baby boy!

I just played both videos for Tyler- we both had a good laugh over 1. Tim's voice and 2. The fact that 13 year old boys are just so stupid! Seriously- Tyler said, "What's wrong with me?" LMAO-

Anywho....so 40 minutes later, we were



back to WDW, and headed to VWL to drop off some stuff before we headed over to Epcot for a quick ride on the new Test Track-



The flowers at WL were gorgeous- I adore foxgloves, so beautiful!











Again- more foxgloves on the way back to the car-



Our sweet $67 ride...



Up next- EPCOT, baby! The abridged version!
