You girls are beautiful. You had a nice size clan with you. I love that you were crying about taking a nap. That made me LOL.

That cheesecake made me lick my computer screen.

That little splash park from your beawesome balcony looks new.

Welcome back to the real world my friend. Wasn't Mickey's place divine?
WELCOME BACK MTK! I kept an eye out for your guys, but alas, no luck. That cheesecake was definitely scrum-diddly-umptious. The World was all that and more. Now I'm gonna go subscribe to your TR!

We'll only see fireworks if Fort Hood shoots them off.

Hey BSG. I would definitely go that way next time. It looked mighty fine.

Well, lets just say it makes for an interesting evening.

MKBeka - it shows you posted, but for some reason I can't see it. If it shows up, I'll catch you in a new reply.

Now I see you! It was some awesomly good stuff. I gotta say, I'm not normally a dessert eater, but when we were on Disney Dining, they were all so good, that I ate every single one of them.

Thanks! It was awesome seeing the world through their eyes. BTW - you made Nana's day!
Wow, it really is "A Small World After All"!!! My front yard is in Killeen and my back yard is in Harker Heights and I work at Metroplex!! How is that for a coincidence!! I will be working tonight on the second or 5th floor, so may be able to peek out at the fireworks!

Great update!! I hope tears turned to smiles and feet healed too!!! As for making Nana's day, she sounds like the best!!!! Looking forward to more, and I am loving your pictures, WOW!!

That's cool! I live about a mile from metroplex. The firworks were good, but its hard to compare when you've just come back from Disney!

Once you stitch the photos together, you have to crop out the edges. On larger pics, Windows Live Photo errors out so you have to use a secondary editing app. I used MS Office Photo Manager and it worked like a dream.

Thanks! A fellow never can tell how toilet commentary will be received.

So far it’s one of my favs! I still have 18 rolls of film that are yet to be developed.

It actually worked out very well….eventually.
Oooh, too bad for me...I'm still an XP user. Is Windows 8 out yet? Once it's out, I might upgrade to Vista. I just don't trust the current OS'.

18 more rolls of film! Holy smokes! Are you planning on going digital anytime soon? There is a certain quality to film that digital is completely absent of. I feel you get more emotion from film...

Glad to hear the bags deal worked out...eventually.

You are going to post these on the Food Pictures thread right?? They are great shots!

I love the picture of the girls eating too-adorable. I hope Tracy's foot gets better... and VERY smart planning on getting the girls to nap!

about you sneaking out while you forced the kids to nap!

Whew!! I finally made it.

I only manage to caught up with the recent trip. I always want one of those Disney toilet for my house. Not sure the plumbing can handle the pressure thought since I don't even have public sewer system.

I dig the panorama shot.

I like to see how the kids got so excited when they get to Disney. They had a glow on their faces. Your are no exception.

A Nikon N60. Good choice. Maybe I need to dust my FM and bring it out of retirement. Which film did you use? Now that Kodak discontinue Kodakchrome.

I'm late to the party, I mean grand adventure, but I'm in!

Love the tie dye cheesecake!

We have 2 of those toilets in our house. If memory serves the slogan at the time we bought them was "you can flush 7 golf balls down without clogging!".

Now. Why one would want to flush 7 golf balls down a toilet I've no idea but given that my youngest once took out our entire system with a glow in the dark eyeball ball (wanting, of course, to see if it would glow "down there"), when we moved I took the new toilets seriously.

I only wish I had more of them. 4 kids, lots of guests...nary a clog. Or at least nary a clog in those SO LOUD THEY SCARE YOU TO DEATH IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT and might take you down with them, toilets.



Off to backtrack to your prequel! You have a lovely family.

Gotcha! I wound up with Vista when I had to replace my laptop. It's not as bad as I thought it would.

Our digital point and shoot is as advanced as I'll be getting for a while. Our home AC unit burned out and we had to replace all 4 tires on Tracy's car the week we left for WDW.

The only film I could find was Fuji. One of the stores here was going all digital so they had their 5 roll packs on sale for $2.00.

That is TOO awesome! See, I could never have a toilet that made that claim because I would feel compelled to prove it. It would gnaw at me until I put it to the test.

Now that's cool...our toilet is just the opposite. In fact, my DD is replacing our tiolet today because it blew a hole in the back of it. We definitly need a Disney tiolet!

No, but I hear you can get a button to "celebrate" it.

What will YOU celebrate? Cheesecake, baby!

Great update, GB.

I'm not a cheesecake girl, but that tie-dyed cheesecake does look, well, interesting!

The girls do look so excited. Big time kudos on getting them to nap. I'm sure that was much appreciated by all later in the day!

Borg on the 4 new tires, by the way. We are going away (NOT to the World) next week, and I've managed to drop about $2,000 on various and sundry things over the past two weeks. Not the best timing, I fear.....

Keep the fun coming!

HOLY COW! I'd hate to know what food was comsumed that resulted in a hole being blown out the back of the commode! Sounds like a hole in the wall restaurant here in town. Their food is great, but the last time I ate there, I woke up the next morning and farted so hard it scared the dog.

DOH! That stinketh! Gotta hate those types of things. Just makes you shake you head and go "I could have upgraded my resort with that!"

It was definitely a great introduction to Disney Dining.

That's what the 4 kids are for After the glow in the dark eyeball ball clog (which required a plumber to go on our ROOF to get it out of the stack....5 hours later) I have no such compulsion.

When we bought it there was one model, and it was pretty basic looking and...LOUD. Now there is a whole line, some of them very pretty. Of course our "pretty" toilet (and yes, there is such a thing) in the powder room is of the "clog if you look at it wrong" variety.
