BUT! The water is 36 degrees! Hopefully it will be

Donations are going throug my church.
Way to go!!!!!
We'll be passing warm thoughts on to you, DD and all of the POLAR Plunge waterskiers When you're in Haiti remember the cooler temps of Feb 1st! On the other hand, tomorrow just think how hot you'll be building a church in Haiti:

I missed your post somehow!

I would just like to say.... YOU ARE INSANE!!!!!!!

The beach is for warm weather, polar bear!!

Seriously, good luck tomorrow- I hope an unexpected shift in the gulf stream brings 85 degree waters to NJ shores in an unprecedented heat wave!

I'm thinkin' you all need copious amounts of soup and blankees in pre-heated cars tomorrow- Best of luck!

I do have to say, I'm glad my church is inland. We do the crop walk in the fall...MUCH more tame!

And what is your church?

OH NO WAY!! Dinner at California Grill? Wow....that tops it! We absolutely loved California Grill on our last trip, and it will be the first ADR I hope to make when our 90 day window opens. I am ALL ABOUT some sushi!

Wow, what a great DISmeet you guys had! Just from different posts on our threads, I would really like to meet TigerKat and Camster! I know you all had a great time at ESPN!

You are welcome so much, and I hope you are still reading!



Lucy from Margate? I don't know- was she in the lobby? Then I probably saw her and didn't put 2+2 together, since I've neer seen Lucy in person- I'm an LBI girl.

As far as the other TRs, here is Mom2princesseslynsy-

http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1967578 and I couldn't find wuvtiggers'....I think I'm the only idiot still sitting at the computer posting a TR, everyone else is on extended hiatus! Hope they both come back, soon!



I think I'm going to do the ST John TR on the community board- is that where your PV one is?

And Cammie- soon I'll hate YOU, too!
Sorry for being MIA - yes, my TR is on the community board - I'll look for yours!

I LOVE Texas! I can always use BFFs from there! So happy you're inspired to take the cruise- can't wait to hear what you think!

That sushi was da BOMB!! And TigerKat and Cammie are wonderful- I HIGHLY encourage a meet with them. Karajeboo is going to stay on my couch at AKV for a night in May, she's going to go on the Wanyama Safari with Loni & I- I am REALLY glad she's coming, can't wait to meet her!! And what about you?

Yes, we will definitely have to meet you and your family on our trip in May. Have you started putting together your plans? Our ADR 90-day date is coming up on Feb. 14th. Maybe we can meet up with you guys for a lunch in the parks one day, or even dinner! I've got a tentative itinerary posted on my PTR....maybe it will coincide with your schedule?

You guys will be at AKV? I was thinking you were staying at the GF for some reason.

Hey, thanks for being my Facebook friend and for sending me Kathy's Facebook recommend. I'll have to become friends with Cammie as well.

Yes, Alan, I'm only gonna be there for one night with Ellen so we need to meet you while I"m there! I'm all about DISmeets! I met Cammie back in November and she's awesome! I was hoping to meet her this month, too, but don't know if I'll be able to make it. This will be my first time meeting crazy Ellen, so wish me luck!

Hi Ellen! I've been reading your trip report for the past 2 days! Amazing job!

My friend and I just booked the 7 night western cruise on the Magic for 10/30/10 - it will be our first time cruising ever! We are so looking forward to it. Did I read somewhere in your trip report you were going to be on that same cruise?

Thanks again for taking the time to share your vacation with us!!!

Jacki

Well, thanks so much! I had a lot of fun writing it- today I might actually finish it! And yes, we will be on the Oct 30th cruise in 2010!! How cool is that?! Have you gone to the cruise meets thread and signed up? There are a few families from this cruise who will be on it, we all rebooked on board because that's when the deals are the sweetest- and because it is just sooo much fun, why wouldn't you want to do it again??

Thanks for reading, and I'm looking forward to meeting you and your friend!

Ellen
