I wouldn't have noticed if there was clutter or dust. All I saw was a DVC bag!!!
You are so sweet! Thanks for all the great compliments!

Good Morning everyone! Just wanted to let you all know that ONE WEEK FROM TODAY we will be waiting for a bus at SSR to take us to Hollywood Studios where we will celebrate Father's Day and eat lunch at the Sci Fi and then take a swim break back at SSR and return to DHS for dinner at Mama Melroses and hopefully use up some fastpasses that we had collected earlier in the day!

The excitement is really starting to build! Our best friends son had a birthday party yesterday and she hired a DJ and the kids had a BLAST! The coolest part was that we met 2 families that have DVC and are on the DIS...it was SO exciting talking with them...we were all waving our Disney freak flags HIGH I tell ya! Here are some pics from the party!





Eric and his best buddy!



Matthew in the hula hoop contest!



Potato sack races!





What a fun afternoon! Earlier yesterday morning Bryan had taken the boys to a civil war reenactment which meant I had a few hours alone...it was heavenly! Here are some pics from that...











Last but not least I wanted to share something with you all....I have always LOVED Disney, Bryan is a recent convert and I knew my kids loved the rides but I never realized their true depth of love for it until I saw this one school project that Matthew did. Every year the boys school has a career day where different people from different professions come in and speak to the children. Matthew's teacher had them write a report on what they wanted to be when they grow up. Here is Matthew's...

This is a picture of a chef and his report is attached to the front...




and here is the report, I hope you can read it!





Today we are going to see UP and I will start packing this afternoon!!!!!!!


Have a good one!

Diane

Hey Diane, 6 days baby!!!!!!!!

Enjoy UP, I cried, let me know if you did. GREAT movie!!!!
That party looked like a blast! My kids always enter the hula hoop contests at Disney so I had to laugh about Matthew having it around his neck. I also died laughing when you said you have been waving your Disney freak flags high - we have been for years we're kinda known for it
Hope you enjoyed some quiet time yesterday. Tim took the kids b-day shopping for me (my b-day is tomorrow) yesterday and I got the house to myself for a couple hours and used it to take the best nap ever.
Good luck with the packing and wrapping up school, we will be there SOON!!!!
Funny how both of us on our first day there are eating at Sci Fi, great minds . . ..
Lesley

Great update - the party sure looked fun. That report that Matthew wrote is really sweet. Especially where he talks about fixing dinner with mom and being in Disney 24/7 around the clock.

What a fun party! Looks like a great time!!

HOORAY FOR DISNEY FREAK FLAGS!!! I have a quick story about that... just this morning on Facebook, I posted that I was going to Iowa (I'm going to teach a band camp there). One of my friends from High School wrote back to me, "I didn't realize Disney had attractions in Iowa". Everyone who knows me and my Disney freak flag know that when I travel, it's usually to see Mickey!!

And the chef report... PRECIOUS!! Treating people like GOLD?! The boy has it nailed, doesn't he?!

Enjoy this exciting week!!!

Sounds like you'll had a great Saturday! We hit a co-workers Luau yesterday and I was flying my Disney Geek flag high. Boss just can't understand why we keep going back.

Your son's report was perfect. My middle child (18) wants to work at Disney as Belle. Trip before last I told that to Belle at CRT, in perfect character she said "But there's only one me." Michelle really would make a great Belle, maybe someday and then I'll get discounts!

We saw Up! weekend before last and I loved it I would go again if I had time.

I love the "next week we'll be doing . . . " posts.

Oh, the luau sounds like fun! I really hate it when people say "why do you keep going back?" I want to say...HELLO, why do you keep going on cruises or to the beach!!! Yay for a potential new Belle at WDW and HOORAY for potential discounts too!
