I agree! No recline=Cranky Baby! That is why I like the Triumph. Nice recline, lightweight, fairly good price. I saw some on Ebay when I was looking so you may want to check there as well.

I think this week might get crazy... so here is a mini-update!

So we are headed to my inlaws this weekend... the good thing is they have a Disney store in the mall .... and they always go to the mall. I hope to get some Easter Basket goodies while they entertain the girls. We are going to celebrate Emily's birthday with them too. Then I hope to return home to see that the June Hours are posted--- a girl can dream right? That will leave me with one week to get our dining plans ready to go. I do feel a lot less stress in regards to when and where to eat now that we are getting hoppers.

Have fun at your in-laws!!! Make sure you scout out any potential Easter stuff at the Disney store -- that way I'll know if I need to make the trek to our mall.

I hope the trip to the ILs will be relaxing and productive! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for June hours for you. A week to to finalize the plans will be helpful, especially with that many people.

Have fun!

for getting the park hours!

(Watch out, though. Disney's been changing them around at the last minute like crazy it seems!)

So glad you decided on the hoppers; I think they will pay off just because of the decreased stress you feel!

to Em!

I just spent the last 2 weeks reading your 2007 and 2008 trip reports and I am hooked. I can't wait for this years trip to start. You have beautiful children and are so lucky to be going back. Thanks for sharing your magic.

Questions....Are you checking the Disney website for hours? Are you using TGM, have you already signed up? We went with TGM in Oct and am thinking about ridemax for June but we get a 25% discount if we go with TGM again. I have made a few adrs for June and we do have park hoppers but it would be really nice to get those hours so we aren't forced to hop around too much......

Have a great weekend!

How great that you listen to a Disney CD everynight! I really want to search for a GOOD one while we are in Disney too! I never thought how difficullt it would be with 3 and the stroller situation. I think your plan sounds great though! I wish Disney didn't jack up their prices Believe it or not, Eric still needs one too! In the heat of June, I can't imagine many young kids can last too long without one!

LOVE your Easter, Disney themed baskets idea! We did that last year to surprise the boys! Make sure you take LOTS of pictures!!

My trip to the Disney store just improved! The girls are going with their grandparents to some play/show and lunch. That means I have time to shop with Luke and DH. That is much more managable than everyone. I am making my list of stops now--- Kohls, Gymboree, Disney Store, Dillards (we have gift cards there I want to see what crocs they have) and on and on...

I will be sad if they are not out by Monday PM at the latest! I sure would love them to be posted Friday so I can plan in the car Friday night!

I worry a bit about having reservations for 7... but I can be flexible with hoppers!

I can't believe she is almost three. Her birthday is not until the 8th, but we need to get started celebrating with all the groups!

I feel so lucky to go again... although I am a bit worried about taking three little kids... thank God for grandparents! Thanks so much for commenting and joining in!

We are signed up for TGM again... I hope he gets the charts done quick! Yes I keep checking once a day the WDW site!

Three in a stroller freaks me out.... but with four adults we will have pushers. Hannah can handle a day at Kings Island, but no way seven at WDW in June. I just know I have to have only two strollers and our double would be a nightmare to go with on buses and such. Plus their might be times Emily and Luke are left with one adult... so we cannot have kids in separate strollers. I think for a short wait that Luke and Emily can be in the WDW stroller together.

Enabler! I do need to get one for Luke. The Easter bunny fills the same ones here every year... and somehow they get random ones from aunts, grandparents etc... we have a ton of them!

So DH's brother, wife and kids are in WDW now-- at the Poly! I talked to my sister in law briefly today and they said they were suprised by the crowds... I guess a lot of southerners are there because they are out for Mardi Gras! Never thought about that! They are having a great time, survived the drive (they have a baby who is just a few months older than Luke) and have had good weather! It was great to get just a taste of their trip! I cannot wait to hear all about it next week!


I am also getting close to working on a countdown calendar with the girls.... I am trying to make it two part for each day, so Emily and Hannah can both do something so they don't freak out--- we said after Emily's birthday we would do it (partially it is a count down for me to know that school is going to end.... it is crazy busy right now!
