Egg me on all want. I should warn you though Jedi is taking baseball this year and I've been working with him on his batting which means my pitching is getting better.

Don't be sad about ending your report. You have another trip to look forward to soon. Your first DVC trip. So far from Queenofallthings pre-trippie is sounds pretty action packed. By the by-Don't tell her but I'm so proud of her for getting online and running with her pre-trip. Just makes me want to burst. Of course, I try not to say nice things about her so let's just keep this between the two of us shall we?

Can't wait for the next update!
Hey, I was writing the update as you were posting. This will be our first year with baseball. Jedi(DS6) is having a go at it. I used to splurge on Hot chocolate when I was watching Jedi and Cindy's (DD8) Hockey games. Baseball has to be warmer doesn't it? I know it's out in the elements but I'm afraid I will be a sit in the car parent when it's raining. I prefer Dance and Piano. They are warm and inside. I'm leaving baseball to Dh.

Dh found out that Tim Horton's gives the little guys free hot chocolate and tim bits after a practise (cause he was just in the drills section. They didn't have any games). Don't you know that Dh made Jedi get the hot chocolate and tim bits even if he didn't want them. Next year Jedi will be in novice Hockey and will be too old for the free stuff. Hope Dh has warned Jedi because he's gotten used to going there after Hockey.

Yeah for getting across the border hassle free....Boo for not getting to Target

I thought of you this past weekend when we went into Target....both Jasmine and I said "I wonder if Jewel got here when they were on their way to Disney"? We spent a considerable amount of time in the travel items section, I do love that section, it makes me smile

Great report so far, can't wait for more.

I think I will just leave you guessing what became of that conversation. The imagination is a wondrous thing.

Ooooh, Bailey's and at duty-free prices too!

You are SO organized!

Yep, sounds like my dh I guess it's a good thing that this continues to happen even after 15.5 years of marriage, right? Way to delay him though!

Can't wait for the next update!

I didn't know that! I'll bet my two are too old for that deal though Your dh's frugal ways make me giggle - there are certainly similarities with my dh

Just got caught up on your TR... it's so much fun to read! I feel like I'm right there with you guys.

Glad your border agent turned out to be a nice one. Love when that happens. Boo for no Target... you'll have to buy even MORE once you finally get there!

I love that you were skipping. That made me smile.

Excellent read, as usual! I LoLed in real life at the part about the adult store.

Your husband makes me laugh. I thought I was the only one who really listened to lyrics in music. I too end up questioning the wording and when I go and look up what exactly the words mean, I end up in for a big surprise!

Like when Christina Aguilera and 3 other singers remade the song Lady Marmalade, I was really into the song but there was one lyric - "voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir?"

I had no idea what it meant and so I looked it up and boy was I surprised!

I can't wait to read more!

Right back at you Ms. Iwatchedtheflightseverydayforlikesixmonths!

If I don't laugh about it I'd cry.

Tim Hortons sponsers many "Timbits" teams. They are usually the starter age group so your kids are probably too old now. If they have a team shirt that says Timbits then they are entitled to the free hot chocolate (or small cold drink in the case of soccer) and timbit after their game.

Thanks! Enjoying yours too. I was just showing one of the kids your pictures of the family suite and ASMu pool last night.

Glad your border agent turned out to be a nice one. Love when that happens. Boo for no Target... you'll have to buy even MORE once you finally get there!

I should have mentioned the need to buy more next time to Dh. That might have hurried him up.


I love that you were skipping. That made me smile.

I can't believe how many times I skipped this trip.

I have a big carryall bag that looks like a Vera bag. I almost bought one March break in the states but I wasn't fond of the only pattern they had in the style I wanted. Next year though.

Thanks for the link!

I love your new Signature!

Wasn't sure if I should put that part in or not.

I used to teach French so I was familiar with that particular song and it's lyrics.
