Ok, well I promised an update today, so here we are. There really isn't much to report. Still planning a bit. It is raining so much here. It has been since the wee hours of the morning and looks like it will for a few more days. Thanks Fay!! Like my yard needed any more rain I just hope that this is the last storm we have to deal with for a while. Preferably until after we return home. I have noticed a couple of iffy spots way out there that they aren't too sure about.....hopefully they will stay far far away from FL/La! Could we all hope?!?!?! I don't mind the rain once we get there, we will put on our ponchos and take off. I just don't want anything (by anything I mean storm) to put our flight in jeopardy

The kids still have no clue. We were talking about "Nana's" trip today and DS8 was asking me if we would have enough time after we dropped Nana at the airport to stop and get breakfast before school. He is totally falling for it! Thank goodness!! He is the one that I was worried about. I told him that I had a pretty good feeling that we would stop that morning and eat breakfast. He has no idea that it will be in ORLANDO!!! So exciting.

I have been planning a bit. I cancelled one of our ADR's. We have elected not to do 50's Prime Time. Honestly DH and I wasn't real fond of the menu choices and my girls do not do well with strangers telling them to eat their veggies and pick the food up off the floor that they may have dropped. Maybe we'll try it another time. I am going to see if I can get in at Sci Fi, if not that's ok, we'll just grab a CS. No worries, no stress....not this trip

I don't have any new pics to post today. Sorry There will be more to come soon. DD4 starts Pre-K tomorrow, so I will probably be doing a lot more posts soon! On another good note..... DH's actually off work tomorrow and Tuesday, so I am very much looking forward to spending some much needed quality time with him, so I realistically won't be posting a lot until Wednesday. Oh and on Thursday DBFF and I are having a "We are leaving in 2 weeks" brunch!! I am really looking forward to that!

I will leave you with a few of my favorite pics of the castle......they're not pics of new things or anything like that, but they'll pass the time













I love the last one. You can see that beautiful blue Florida sky! Lets all hope that it stays that way for our trip in 17 days!

I'm so glad your surprise is still on track - I can just imagine their expressions when they figure it out!

Beautiful castle pics!

I bow down to your ability to keep it a secret - I would probably burst!!!! Our trip is 7 weeks away and I talk about it every single day.

They are going to have such a good time.

We're getting the rain from Fay in a couple days. We could really use it as it has been a dry summer up here in MD. As long as there's no hurricanes in middle of October in Florida, I'm cool.

Love the castle pics. Something so magical about seeing it in its majesty. Do boys get all worked up by the castle? I know that both DS were last time but I wonder now that they're older, will they still care.

Glad to hear that the kids haven't figured anything out. With 2 weeks to go, I think you're going to make it! Have fun at brunch with DBFF and I hope you handle it well when DD goes off to school tomorrow.

Hi....I just read your ptr! This trip sound fantastic. I used the link for your ptr from you bff's ptr. You gals are so lucky to be sharing this magical vacation with good friends. I'm so jealous!

We go in January 2009, but I'm already thinking I will have to plan a trip with our good friends, since the kids get along so good together.....hmmmmm, wheels are turning now. I'm off to call my BFF now....woohoo.

You should definitely do that! Oh, but maybe you should wait till we get back so you can see if it worked out or not . . . LOL!!!!!!!!! Of course it will work out - 2 families of BFF's in the happiest place on earth! What could be better?
