Thanks for the website! I'm in the process of reading your camping thread and it is very good. DH and I would like to know where that campground is?

Welcome csharp7! Thanks for joining us! It's nice to hear from another girl that got whisked away by those crazy chipmunks. I don't really have a "favorite" out of the disney characters, but I would have to lean towards Chip and Dale. Close second would be Minnie. I dated my DH for 4 years before we got married and even then he was crazy about Donald and ducks. I don't know if that was started when he was little or not. When will you be heading to the World in September?

It is the Chicago Northwest KOA. Here is their site through KOA. Also, here is their independent website. They are located in the Marengo/Union, Illinois area. It took us about an hour and a half to get there from Chicago. It is a very nice campground - gated, clean, nice area, etc. We will definitely go back.

You guys are gonna love it there, it is alot of walking if you are in one of the farther out countries like when we were in Jamaica to walk to the food court, but it is a very nice walk along the water and across caribbean cay. There are also hamocks everywhere.

Here are a few more pictures for you and everyone else to enjoy.

This is our king bedroom it was a great corner room.



And here we are on our last morning doing some more shopping walking back to our room. The walk was fun just watch out for the little lizards on the ground they were everywhere.

I dont think I ever told DW this story, I started a love hate relationship with ducks when I was in Disney World at about age 7. We always stayed in the campground when growing up and my dad had to rent a golf cart at least one of the days. One morning I had my bowl of dry cheeries (I love them that way) and was sitting on the golf cart in front of the camper eating them. Well along came this brown duck walking up to the cart so I started to throw some cheerios to it. Well needless to say it kept getting closer to me and I kept feeding it.

I then stuck my hand out and it grabbed the cheerio but not knowing that my hand would get that close to its mouth I kept it there. Well you can quess what happened next. It snipped my fingers and I yelled "STUPID DUCK" and ran to my mom crying. My dad has pics and videos of this he was standing behind me. I am going to have to show that video to DW. She will love it. So even though it was tramatic I think that is when my fascination with ducks came about. From what I can remeber I have liked them ever since. I guess it takes pain to love that duck.

The campground looks neat, but I think that is a little far for us to go on the weekends. Have you ever camped in any Indiana State Park?

We'll be there from the 15th to the 23rd (18 month anniversary at the Cali grill!)

Love love love the pictures of CBR - but what is a queen room? I thought the only choices were a king or two doubles? Do you have to pay the preferred rate for it?

It was a king room. I remember because I LOVED how big the bed was, and how much room I had!

Congrats on the Anniversary.

I am sorry I typed it wrong, it is fixed now, it was a king size room. The preffered does cost extra, but when I made our reservation I told them it was for our honeymoon and asked if we could get a king bed and a water view. I did not pay the extra for the preffered, but we ended up getting both. Not sure if that was just because they put down it was for our honeymoon or if we just got lucky and didnt have to pay the extra.
But hay im not gonna complain.

When we made our reservations this year I also had them put down it was for our 1 year anniversary and also requested a room that is close to the food court, I think that is a preffered location, but they didnt charge me more for the room.

Nope, I have never camped in Indiana. This past weekend was our very first camping trip as a family. I used to camp with my grandparents when I was much younger, but we stuck mostly to Pennsylvania - and we stayed in a 5th wheel camper. DH camped with his parents and siblings as a kid, but they stuck mainly to Wisconsin. For our first camping trip, I think it was pretty successful.

Congrats on becoming a Mouseketeer!!!!

Thanks on the Mouseketeer congrats.

We love camping I also grew up camping in 40 foot 5th wheels, the last two had ceiling fans in them. Haha, my dad likes to be comfy. His newest one has two sets of bunk beds and two bathrooms one upstairs and one downstairs. He said is so he can take all the grandchildren with him.

You should try out some of the Indiana campgrounds. Our favorite is Turkey Run down south in Indiana. It has a bunch of trails that are in canyons that the glaciers carved out, it is a real fun place to go in the fall. We usually go around Halloween time.

Ok everyone, so I just made a different reservation for our night at Epcot. Again! My third time today! After viewing the menu for the Garden Grill, I wasn't that enthused with the selection. Not a big fan of catfish and such. So after many quick discussions with the DH and looking and double looking through menus of all the restaurants available..... I chose Nine Dragons. We both love Chinese food and the menu looked quite tasty. Whew! Each time I called Disney Reservations I didn't wait any longer than two disney songs. That's exciting too. I think the longest we have ever waited was an hour or a little over an hour. I started falling asleep one time I called them because it was in the morning and I hadn't woken up all the way.

We're going to be downtown tomorrow, too!! Today is DS's 13th birthday. He has never been to Shedd Aquarium, so we will be taking him there. Plus, the only thing he asked for for his birthday was to go to Pizzeria Due's for dinner. So we will be doing both. Shhhh....don't tell him!!
