It's definitely worth some more money to have that peace of mind.

Yep, there are bikes to rent and some bike paths, one leads to the observation tower. There's also volleyball courts for free. they have paddle boats to rent which might be nice if the water is too cold to get wet. Mom wants to do the jet ski excursion when we go, she's never been on one.

But that would make some great vacation memories!

Very cool! Sorry if that made your choices any harder.

Not difficult to find, they had a very distinct path heading back to it but it was quite a ways. We contemplated turning back a few times but were quite curious what was at the end of the path. Definitely in the jungle.

Do tell. Sounds tropical and delicious. Whats in it?

I totally agree. Time and piece of mind are valuable.

Jet skis are a blast. She'll love that. You're such a good daughter. Paddle boating might be fun in addition to the bike rental. Good ideas. Do they run out of bikes I wonder or can we book based on weather? Hmm....

I need to do some research.

Joshua would love the idea or exploring in the jungle. Me? Not so much. I'm not a fan of things that slither.

That sounds great. This sounds familiar. Is this the one you're going on?

I knew it sounded familiar. This is the one I'd love to crash but the timing is terrible. Once again, I'll have to live through you all. I feel so Disney deprived. I'm especially licking my wounds right now because our Christmas Disneyland trip is off and the GCV are available. I knew I shouldn't have looked. I was hoping they'd be booked and I'd feel better.

Close but no cigar. Maybe if I get a few more replies, I'll post the revealing installment tomorrow.

No, she nixed THAT red dress, said if I was wearing something with bugle beads she should wear a tux. I picked a DIFFERENT red dress. Think other TR. I bought ears to go with it!

The darling polka dot red dress? Love that one. It's so fun and festive. Hope you had a nice evening.


Close but no cigar.



Where's MaryEllen? I thought for sure she'd beat me to it.
