I walked around the Big Blue pool and took pictures. I thought I took one of everything but you have at least 3 things I never even saw when I was there. I don't know what I was looking at and how I could have missed them

I showed River you butt surgery pictures and he thought it was hilarious too!

I had NO idea that there was a refilling station out at the pool area! MAN! What did Claire think of the music under the water?

That picture of Rafiki's butt all wrapped up is pretty darn funny!

McDonald's french fries - yeah, I see the resemblance.

Beautiful pictures of the pool area. Such a fun and festive pool.

I absolutely hate when a soda station is covered in bees. It scares the crap out of me.

I tried to get everything. I probably missed stuff too though.
Nothing like butt surgery to get a laugh!

I know I had read about it before I went, so I think I went looking for it more than anything.
She did say she could hear stuff underwater and it was "super cool".

The whole resort is fun! I am really glad we gave it a try. It was still very new too. In fact one day Alexis told me they had the door open for some reason while they were staying there and the mirror just cracked. I guess it was from the humidity and cool air mixing. They were shocked and mousekeeeping just taped it.

That dang bus finally came and we were off to the Magic Kingdom!



As we entered, the parade was going by, so we stopped and watched a bit of it.



We decided to slip in and see which princesses were meeting. Claire was hoping for Rapunzel, but she was not meeting at the time, but the line was short, so we went in anyways.







You can never see Cinderella too many times.







And the photopass photographer got a cheesy smile from me.





I love you Cindy!





Aurora was waiting next.















I am not sure why she is making this face. They mustíve been talking about something funny.









Claire is all about hugging.





And they were the only 2 meeting right now, so we headed out.

What a shame that only two of the Princesses were out. The photos have come out great though.

I was surprised only 2 were out. But the line was short, so it worked for us.

Love the pics! I can't wait until LM comes out on DVD in October. I've always seemed to miss the releases!

Yes, they do look like fries! Where's the ketchup?

Just curious - how many autograph books has Claire filled with signatures from Disney so far? Do you think you have all autographs at least once yet? I was in front of a couple once that had been at the parks for 3 weeks straight - and they had a school age kid with them. It would have been March. They were on their 3rd book, and were trying hard to find Jiminy Cricket. They said he was among the hardest...

I couldn't imagine being away from home for that long, the $$ spent, nor working so hard just for Disney autographs! I like Disney, but not that much!

You know me.... I always like to see the princess photos.

Glad the line was short, but that does stink that Rapunzel wasn't there.

That Big Blue pool looks fun, you got some nice pics of the area.

Great pics with the Cindy and Aurora.

Hi all. I will come back later to do responses.
I am actually bringing this TR to a hault right now for a little bit.
Sunday morning at 4:30 AM we recieved a phone call. Typically late night calls means cows got out and Skip has to go out and round them up. I only wish that was the call. The phone was for me and it was a local hospital.
My oldest daughter Paige was in a car accident. That is just an awful call to get, and they give you next to NO info at all on the phone. I kept asking and they just said she was stable. What kind of answer is that? They also couldn't get a hold of her Dad and asked me to keep trying as well.
Of course the hospital she went to is one that is not very close at all. A good one, but not convenient to get to and I honestly was not even sure how to get there as it has been 20 years since I last went there.
On the way I called Paiges dad and he did end up getting the call too. We both arrived at the same time, we ended up finding each other on the road and made our way to the hospital.
When we got to the ER they said she was being moved to a room and admitted.
Still no info really, only that she was a passenger and was ejected from the vehicle and she looked darn good for someone thrown from a truck.
We finally got to see her. She remembers nothing of the accident, which is good and said there were 4 of them. The ER people told us 3 were taken to different hospitals.
She was with her friend Ashley for the night and they met up with 2 guy friends and decided to go out after the bar closed. The driver is a fun guy and she said she never really knew if he was drunk or if he had been drinking because he acted like normal. They took off and he started driving crazy, not drunk crazy, but being stupid and we think he lost control of the truck and flipped it.
Through out the day we found out that Ashley was the only one with a seatbelt on and that she is the 1 who called 911. She said she was the only passgenger left and the other 3 were missing. The police told us they had to seach for the other 3 in a bean field. Ithis really hurts my heart to know she was laying in a field and people had to search for her) The driver had died and Paige and the other boy, Aaron were life flighted to 2 Toledo hospitals. Ashley was taken to the small town hospital near by and from what I understand she has racing heart issues, but was released later in the day.
From what it sounds, Aaron was in really bad shape and he is lucky to be alive. We have heard he had major head trauma, but he is stable now, which the police were amazed to hear.
Paige faired very well for such a horrific accident. She has fractured ribs, partial collasped lung, a torn spleen and some scrapes and bruises. Amazingly not one scratch on her face. She also has neck pain and though no broken bnones (which again is amazing) they are keeping her in a neck brace.
She will be in the hospital for several days as they are monitoring the spleen and if it heals she will get to come home by the weekend most likely. If not they will take it out. They sound hopeful.
Basically the police told us they were amazed to find anyone alive that was thrown and that Paige looked really good.
God was really watching over Paige. There is no other way to see it. She is lucky to be alive and I am lucky she is. This could've been so much worse than it already is.
I do ask for prayers for Paige, the other 2 surviving passengers and for the boys family who died. It's going to be a long road for all of them. And remember how precious life is!!!!
