Oh no, Simba22 - I am so depressed.......when my sister and I were 40 years younger, my parents would put us in the station wagon and drive from Boston to Florida (including WDW) and we would always stop at South of the Border. Those were some of the best memories of my childhood. But that was back when 95 was a 4 lane divided highway with stop lights every 1/2 mile. The SOB signs were the only thing that kept us from going crazy on that 3 day ride to FL.

South of the Border had heated pools which we could swim in at night and a gift shop that was so exotic to a child. I used to get the bubblegum shaped like oranges.

It was a tourist trap back then....but we were tourists. I had actually tried to get my husband to drive to WDW this coming November because I wanted to take my kids to South of the Border. Thank goodness we found cheap airfare.

Figures. By the time I get caught up you are already back with the mouse again. Lovin' the pics - you have an adorable family! I am with you on the food chain, but don't know if I can handle looking at real live fruit bats. The first time I visited DH's mother's house, we watched on of the Indiana Jones movies - where she was hanging up laundry, then it was a fruit bat...I jumped so bad I threw my coffee, staining the couch.
(I might have to stick with the version I bought at a craft show - wooden apple brightly painted with wings...)

Anyways have a great trip!!!

Hi Pony!

Loved the last three parts.

I'm touched... and honoured... that you looked for me. At the Haunted Mansion.

Thanks!

So... your three were not HUGE fans, eh? Like two of my own.

There is no accounting for taste. With youngsters nowadays!

Guess what?

Santa forgot to bring the Viking costume I asked for for Christmas, too.

Curses!

Love the pictures. They are breathtaking. In their beauty.

No.

Not the pictures.

Your children.

Love ya, HorseponywhereareyouRIGHTNOW?

Cheers, Mel.

lol, I agree. The king has an *awesome* voice! I love his headdress. IT's so big and shiny and, well, ...cool.
The Festival of the Lion King is probably my most favorite show in Disney.

Darling People! I did finish this trippie on the plane down, but did not log on once during our fabulous trip cuz, well, we were otherwise preoccupied! It is on the laptop waiting for a quick edit, only problem is that DJ has the laptop. So if he emails me the text, I will post some concluding chaps this afternoon.

Horseybabysweetiepie,

I have been remiss. I knew you had posted more installments before you left, but somehow never made it over here til tonight. Anyway, wonderful, wonderful. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures. The kids are beautiful, you look lovely (love the hat), and HOW did I not KNOW how absolutely hot DJ is?????? He is a cutie of the highest magnitude! And you can tell him I said so!

And, of course, I can't NOT mention AK, and EE. You are my EE buddy. I will always think of you, forever, when I ride it. AND, btw, btw, btw (!) the FIRST time I ride it, you will be holding my hand while I scream! LUCKY ME!!!!! I can't wait, baby!

Thanks for working so hard to finish this up. I will not pressure you on this trip just ended. I know you will be busy with the kids starting school, and your work, and, of course, getting ready for your NEXT trip in 30 DAYS!!!! But if you are so inclined, we would really love to get all the scoop from this most recent fabu trip, too. Your musings are a true joy. To all of us. (Yes, I feel comfortable speaking for the masses.)

Ashclan, you my friend are beyond sweet. Thanks sister from Beantown and fellow mother.

Kimmar- great to see you again and I will mosey on over to read your tale.

UtahMama- You can call me a hoser. I never knew what it meant....

Grammyof2-You the original spice girl, and faithful friend, thanks for dropping in.

sbpuckett- patience is a virture, thank you sincerely....

mickeyzzzzz05-gosh, thanks for the compliment.

bab31-thanks for the pm, good luck!

happyhaunt-I looked again, this time with the kids. Show yourself ghostie....Thanks for the sweetness about my beautiful kids, which I had nothing to do with so I can say it! Chin up, looks like there were rough seas in your neighhhhhhhhhhborhood today. Stay tough comrade, we have been through these Maelstroms before, you and I. Here. On these boards.

mara-Thanks for stopping by. Long live the king.

agoofymom-fellow foodchainphobe. I am with you on bats in general, but these fruit bats charmed me, for some reason. There is no method to my madness. None.

mmmcq- I was in the station wagon next to you at SOB! It was exotic and ever so kitsch! I loved it then. Haven't had to drive to the sunshine state since college....phew!

Haleyb- We are borg woman, in so many ways. Who is slower finishing? You or me? Oh wait, that is a no brainer. Keep cracking and thanks for reading!

Simba-Glad you got a chuckle, girl. You gave me one too.

Dreamer and WIsher- I have to bribe Sky to wear shorts. I love her in dresses, but she doesn't have the modesty thing quite mastered and is quite the tomboy, funny how kids develop their own preferences so early.....thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Sheridac-Hello Mama! Thanks for checking in.

Pigglet74-Sorry to make you wait. I did finish, but just did not want to take the time to post while at Diz, which is when I would have had to do that, as I got the final chapters drafted on the way down....thanks for your posts, all of them.

BeccaG-I don't know how or where you hooked up, but glad you did and welcome.
