Are you packed and ready? I'm so excited for you!
Thanks for the chair pic! They look lovely, and I'm really diggin' the orange flowers with the blue, very nice.

We are mostly packed, DH and I will finish up tomorrow night once DSs are in bed. I'm so excited, sometimes I can't help myself and I have to scream

We head to WDW on Friday, I'm all caught up on my work stuff, so now it's all about our trip And the boys still don't know about the week in Disney 1st I'm telling ya Friday 8PM can't come quick enough

Jenny, I love the new furniture, I vote for Craigslist for the old stuff, it usually leave really quickly, especially if the price is right!

I have missed you the last few times I have been on here. It has been quite interesting for sure.

It's so funny, I don't think I do, at all! Yes, we are going to SF in Sept. for a weekend. Jeff got a burr in his saddle that he wanted to watch the America's cup finals. So apparently we are going. LOL! Guess I need to figure out of that means we are staying at his dad's or getting a hotel and if it's kids too. He bought 4 tickets while I was in DC but then mentioned his dad and stepmom are "in" and I don't know what that means. LOL!

Supposedly K's cruise friends had a FB group going but I don't know that there's been much activity. Of course on the cruise they were all plotting for a reunion cruise but now, I don't think many are in touch, maybe one girl but I'm not sure.

Jeff doesn't DIS so that won't happen but he sees the updates on FB. Or I torture him by texting pictures of margaritas from the Ditch as Mary Ellen can attest. He just LOVES that. Actually I probably texted him one the night we were all there.

Oh who knows. We are in Region IV and our regionals this year are in HI. Typically it would be whomever wins state cup gets to go. This year, WA has the wild card so it means 1st and 2nd get to go. Last year the regionals were in AZ, our team came in 2nd but the team that got the wildcard (AK I think) didn't go so we could have gone but chose not to as several of the girls on the team at that point were either on the ODP team which had it's own tournament either the week before or after or were moving to ECNL team sand it conflicted. K wasn't on the team so it didn't really matter to us either way, she re-joined it after state cup was over so wouldn't have gone. Realistically she was able to re-join the team as some of those girls left for the ECNL team, they'd been playing both and it really wasn't fair to the team.

This year really, they are tracking in the upper third of their bracket. Not a shoe in by any stretch of the imagination. They "should" make it to the semi's but you never know. Both Jeff and I will be shocked if they are in the finals. Which sounds awful, they are capable of it, but I just don't see it happening.

Given that I find it very interesting that coach is so sure we are going. The team did go back in 2008 and Kendall was on the team then. If memory serves there were some restrictions but I don't recall what (we didn't go, the flights were over $800 at the time! so her mom went, took T and they made it their vacation...which was pretty boring for T a lot of the time but I digress). I do know she took a surfing lesson but that may well have been after they got knocked out of the tournament. Which was swift and early.

Camps, any camps are crazy. I think the cheapest one we are looking at is $325 for the boys. I'd probably take a 4 day camp for $450 over a 3 day tournament that means plane fare and hotel and then the rest is in the very high club fees....

I have no idea. Right now all that is intact is the vet, the soccer field and the school. There is an airport, fire station, post office, police station, grocery store, bus stop as well but they are all in pieces. Boys were supposedly trying to reconstruct but sounds like it isn't going very well. We had a bunch of the castle stuff too but gave that to my nephews in Germany. I may see if they want any of this...not sure.

Yeah, I'm just not comfortable with giving out my address, period. Which is a bit of a bummer as the playmobil set is on a great train table that I also need to sell and that's definitely too big to ship anywhere.

He's going to try to be in town though. Last year was the best.


I was REALLY hoping Eric would pick church camp as then they would be gone at the same time. Right now it looks like Evan has 1 week at Church Camp and 1 week at a Young Life Camp. Which is also church camp lol. Eric has 1 week at Scout camp and then had his choice between a week long scout 50 mile raft trip or Church camp and it seems he is leaning towards the raft trip. He can't do both as they overlap by a day plus I can't afford both. Heck, I'm not sure I can afford all 4 as it is, I'm only officially committed to 2 of them.

He didn't bat an eye! I think he has come to grand moment of acceptance that I travel with internet strangers.
Acceptance is an important part of the process

Thank you. I'm a color person for sure. Our walls are so many different colors. Its a fun and inexpensive way to add personality to the home.

Thank you. So far, it doesn't fit but I'm going to wait for when the love seat arrives before I give up hope. The blue chairs are exactly what the room needed.

Thank you Alison. How's the cruise? Thanks for checking in here. I'm not getting many hits on KSL so I think I may try it. I have a friend in OC who sells everything on Craig's List.

It never feels like enough to me either. I could go away every other weekend and be perfectly happy. Except for the unpacking. I hate unpacking. Packing is so much more fun. Unpacking is just a reminder that in the next day or two, reality hits.

Bummer, that would have been fun had they kept in touch. I think FB isn't so popular for the teens anymore. It's all about Twitter, Instagram, and SnapChat for my girls. Gabby deleted her FB and Chloe rarely gets on hers. They tweet constantly though. It moves a lot faster than FB Gabby says though I'm not very familiar with it.

She must be really good. Gabby does it more for fun and to be part of a team. I just wish she could do it for AYSO. Her team this year hasn't won a game but none of them seem to mind. It's crazy. They practice 3x a week and play once a week and lose and lose and never seem to get upset. Its bizarre.

Well I hope if they go you're able to join her and can take on a week in Hawaii but I see how it makes more sense for her mother to take her.

Yeah Jew Camp is $2000K before flights but it is for two weeks. Gabby is working so she gets 4 weeks for the same price. Thankfully I had a bunch of SW points and booked their way home using those. I paid cash (or plastic) for their way there. Joshua is set to fly alone and it makes me nervous. Thankfully he's still considered an unaccompanied minor and the $50 I had to pay is well worth the piece of mind.

They don't offer a one week option though so she's out of luck. She says two weeks is too long however she has no issue going to AZ for two weeks to be with her bestie. Hmmm......

Well I hope if they go you're able to join her and can take on a week in Hawaii but I see how it makes more sense for her mother to take her.
She hopes to play in college. We will see. So far we have 2 D2 schools expressing real interest. Unfortunately neither are really exactly what she is looking for academically, though one is probably a very solid backup plan and one it an outstanding school...just not what she is looking for so that's a bit of a bummer. For what she is interested in academically...she's got to get those SAT scores WAY up. GPA is there but the practice test she took was not encouraging.

Jeff will likely handle some of the summer college visits and ID camps and IF the team goes to Hawaii, her mom will do that but I really don't see Hawaii happening.

That's cool, mine don't have to fly so that is something. There are 2 local options that our church goes to, but both are driving, one just a lot farther than the other (so I pick the closer one!). Nope, don't mind you asking Church camp is through the UCC church which is an O&A Christian Church (Open and Affirming). Basically uber liberal Protestant. Young Life, if you aren't familiar with it is a non denominational Christian youth organization. I went to it in HS and one of their summer camps and it really was an amazing experience. It's kind of cute as Evan stumbled across Young Life all on his own, through his friends, as I did and it just makes me smile.

Its so anxiety producing but at least she's got options. Are they talking scholarships? That would be great. Where are the schools?

I'll never understand the importance they place on SAT scores. They are in part a very unfair way to predict who will succeed and who won't.

Thats very nice that you both found the same group on your own. Meaningful and wonderful. Both sound amazing. We're uber liberal too. Reform Judaism is very open, fluid, transparent, and I like that.

There's never enough vacation time
I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

Accabelieveit! It's going to be a total cult classic. We watch it once a week. Crude in some parts but I like that.

Thank you, I really like the chairs too. I'm having one replaced tomorrow. Some of the stitching is loose and I want it perfect- lol! I'm sure my dogs or kids will ruin it but I'd like it to at least arrive without a snag.

It is going to be one of those movies that I will watch whenever I see it on, also Crazy, Stupid, Love I am watching that one now. I don't blame you I would expect that something I bought would come without a defect.

I agree, it wasn't on sale or a floor model, it shouldn't have a defect.

It is really a funny movie. PG13 has come along way. I can't believe it's not R rated.

After checking out our gorgeous 2 bedroom SV villa at Kidani we grabbed a snack and headed over to AK. They had evening EMH from 5p-8p and I was so looking forward to seeing AK at dusk. I am a sunset junkie. If youíre my FB friend, you know this. During our last trip to So Cal over Spring Break I watched 4 sunsets on the beach. It doesnít get any better for me than watching the sunset especially over a body of water. The sun, not me.

Waiting for the bus:



We were meeting Jenna et al there too. We arrived at AK and were so excited but forgot to take any entrance photos. I know, bad DISer. The park wasnít crowded at all. It was lovely and it had cooled down some. AK is stunning anytime but I have to say that evening is my favorite. We enjoyed it so much. I would move park days around just to experience it again. In fact, I changed our plans once I found out we'd get the chance to have an AK EMH option.

Of course we went straight to EE and I took a ceiling shot. I have no idea why.



And some other shots all with my cell:







Iím generally not brave enough to take my cell out of my pocket but for some reason, maybe it was the AK magic, I took a walk on the wild side:



I even turned around:



Clearly not brave enough to go *no hands* though:



EE is brilliant. Its such a great attraction from the queue to the end, it keeps our attention.

Next we headed for some Safari action. Lights off:



Lights on:



It was officially becoming dusk. Why do Disney lights make everything better?

The next shots are all of Safari. Iíll post the ones from my cell first. Iíll let you know, though youíll probably be able to tell, when they are camera shots.

Iím not sure if this was by accident or if I was being edgy.



Happy as a hippo (or two):



The Falls:



Feeding time:



So long and beautiful:



Elephant butt:



Mufasa. Say it again....



The next set of photos, Michael took with the camera. Weíve been on Safari so many times but we just canít help taking far too many photos. He gets a little nuts with the angles etc but I like them.

Continued in next post.....
