Great trip report. I can't wait to read the rest. I hope the magic came back for you.

Sorry he gave you such a hard time at `Ohana, but at least you all got to eat desert together!

so sorry your trip wasn't turning out how you hoped it would. How cute is he lying there though? Makes you forget the trouble they are eh?

Hope your red pen changes turn things around for you.

I know what you mean about DH taking him away from a situation too fast. Its hard for them to get used to this type of thing if they are always taken straight away.
I sometimes think that if kids cry at something and you whip them away you are reaffirming that there is a reason to cry. Kind of like - i don't like this - oh Daddy is taking me away so I was right - it must be bad afterall. Not well explained but you see what I mean.

So hard to find a middle ground though isn't it?


Not nice to hear you were choking back the tears in Ohanas. Happened to me once when DH and I went just after we got married. we were supposed to go with his best man and his girlfriend but then they broke up so he brought a friend (another guy). DH was great but dragging those 2 round was a nightmare (didn't much like his best man at the best of times). We were at AK and I really wanted to see Festival of the Lion King for the first time. They made it clear they really didn't but instead of doing something else they came too and sulked like 2 year olds. I remember very clearly sitting there fighting tears wishing it was all so different and it was just DH and I. You should never feel like that at Disney!


Can't wait to hear about what happened next.

Oh, and Happy Easter!!!!

Oh dear. I fell horribly behind again. But I will say that it is nice to get all caught up in one concentrated bit of an afternoon!

Glad you enjoyed Beaches 'n Cream (other than the onion rings!). You got some great shots of the Boardwalk area and Crescent Lake. I'm still bummed we were there at the same time and didn't know it to meet. I wonder if we passed eachother? Can't believe so many kitchen sinks were ordered while you were there... who can actually eat those???

Good for you rallying after the vomit incident! You got some great deals at Downtown Disney.

I am so very, very sorry about your dog, Bailey. I know how heartbreaking that is.

Oy on the O'Hana dinner. I've heard that the entertainer there is not so good. So sorry Liam was afraid. And what was your waitress thinking with the maraca?? But as Jackie said, she redeemed herself with the dessert on the beach concept.

Your ticker says 21 days 'til baby!

Thankfully Liam wasn't like that the whole time....he'd just have his meltdown and then be back to his cheerful self.

The Easter bunny bought Liam his first thing of Play-Dough.....he only tried to eat it 3 times!

I know exactly what you mean. DH has only really done this at Disney. But a couple weeks ago we went out to dinner with my in-laws. At the end of the meal when we were waiting for the bill....Liam was getting a little ansty. MIL wanted to take him away from the table and take him outside. Both DH and I wouldn't allow it for exactly your reasoning. I just re-focused his attention on something else. I think MIL is used to her other grandkids....who I have never had a meal with without them having a major issue.

You should never feel like that ANYWHERE!
