The only one of those that we're doing is Crystal Palace. I will post one here without the date, but if you want the date, let me know, and I'll add it.

Hi.....glad to see you here. I admit, I don't update here as much as I could, but I'm planning on doing a VERY good trip report. I bought a new memory card for the trip that will hold over 1,000 pictures, and I'm pretty sure it will be full by the time we get home .

Well, I've been working on my Disney memory book. I've had all the cards printed off from Snapfish, and I'm going to mount them on Mat Stacks (for scrapbooking) with photo corners so that they can be taken out of the book and put into oru photo album with the pictures. I also used Natalie's invites and will use them as the starter picture for meal pictures in the photo albums.

The last thing that I have to make (besides our t-shirts) is the itinerary books with what park we'll be in each day, dining reservations, confirmation numbers, etc. I'm going to print off one for us and one for my mom so that if we get separated or if she decides to go back to the hotel for a rest or something, she'll know where to find us. I guess I still need to print off our Dining plan cards (for us to mark off the meal credits) too.

I'm so excited, and I wish the trip wasn't so far away. DH is harvesting for his family right now, and it's been very stressful. We definitely all need a break.

Just thought I'd drop by to say hello. I have been so busy with last minute wedding stuff that I have been neglecting the dis. That and I am really bummed that we might not be able to make our annual trip in Dec because if df's work schedule. We still don't know anything yet and I wish they would tell us gosh darnit because it is getting really close to 180 days and I want good adr's of course! Your little card things are a wonderful idea! I might actually take that idea and run with it if we do end up getting to go. Since I like to do a meal report and what not. If not I'll just use a notebook and keep up with that, but I think we do need the must see's for sure b/c last year we forgot to go back to toon town to see minnie and mickeys house and I've been bummed about it ever since I realized it when we got home in dec. Lol. Good luck sounds like you got it under control

Well, there's not to much to report as far as Disney goes, so I thought I'd update you on some other things that are going on here. We had a 4th of July barbecue with several of our family members, and we shot off A LOT of fireworks.

It was nice, but we were missing several family members that usually come, so that was disappointing. I tried practicing with the fireworks mode on my camera (so that I can get some good ones at MNSSHP), but I only got about two good ones.

If anyone has any advice, please let me know.

Last night we took DD #1 to a local carnival along with my neice, and that was a lot of fun too. My neice, who is 12, actually got me on some of the wilder rides. I told her I was "preparing for Disney."

This week DH and I are going to St. Louis because he needs to buy another semi for our business. My mom is keeping the girls (see what I mean about how much she does for us), so it will be a nice little get away for me and DH. I'm really looking forward to it. DH wants to go to Six Flags if we have time, so that would be REAL preparation for Disney. I'm not really a roller coaster fan, but I'm sure he'd get me on some of them . I'll update with pics when we get back.

Well, we're back from St. Louis, and DH found a truck that he really likes . We also had time to do a few fun things. I'm actually doing a trip report on another site......if you're interested, let me know.

Here are a few pictures.

Union Station and the sign for our hotel


Hard Rock.....fun atmosphere, but horrible food


The arch


DH and I at the top of the arch


DH's new truck


St. Louis zoo


The cutest baby elephant ever!

We had a lot of fun, and it was really nice for DH and I to get away alone for a couple of days. This weekend, we're going to KC for my cousin's baby shower, and we're going to take the girls to the zoo there.

If it tells you anything about how I'm going to be at Disney, I took over 200 pictures on this trip!

It's funny that you say. I actually took pictures of the capsules because of friend of mine and her family are going to St. Louis in a couple of weeks and she was asking me if I thought she'd be okay at the top because she's afraid of heights. I told her I was more worried about her getting to the top......when she saw the pictures of the capsules, she told me that just looking at it made her want to puke and there was no way she was getting in one of those .

She was glad I took the pictures from the top because she said it was the only way she'd get to see it.

Ok everyone.....I've had an AWFUL afternoon, and I need to vent!

Today I got an email from Expedia saying that my flights had been cancelled and that I needed to call immediately ! I called and got the rudest people I have ever spoken to on the phone.....I had to go through 3 technicians before some one could give me an explanation of what was going on and connect me to a supervisor. The supervisor was also incredibly rude, but did manage to explain to me that Midwest has cancelled all of its flights from KC to basically ANYWHERE in Florida! I booked these flights in April because they were the only nonstop flights that expedia showed.

Well, I had to fight and argue with them and tell them that I didn't want to sit around and wait and see what happened......I wanted my reservation cancelled NOW!!! Supposedly they are going to refund the amount to my credit card (which I'll believe when I see and have already talked to Chase about), and cancelled the flight.

My mom called the airport in KC, and they said the most reliable airline is Southwest and that they also fly nonstop to Orlando. It is going to cost us about an extra $100 dollars per person, but, at this point, I don't care as long as we get there!

Yes, please let us know. I've got a fireworks setting on my camera and they still don't turn out well.

Thanks.....we did go ahead and book new flights. They were a bit more expensive, but we're going to get there, and that's all that matters.
