Oh cool! My husband is from Cranberry (the one near Oil City) and we lived in Meadville for about 3 years after we were married. My DSIL lives in Erie currently so I spend a good amount of time in North Western PA. We live just above Scranton currently.

Yep. Jon was up at 7:00. I tried getting him to go back to bed for 2 hours, but he decided he'd rather pester Nate & I until we got out of bed.

I grew up in Youngsville and my wife in Warren, PA. I went to PSU's Behrend campus for 2 years, then University Park for 2. My wife went to Allegany College in Meadville. We get back up that way a couple times a year to visit family.

I know all those places! I worked in Warren for awhile. I was based in Meadville, but I would have to travel to the Titusville & Warren clinics. Not so familiar with Southern PA though.

Isn't that pic a crack-up? They fell asleep within seconds of sitting down. And they didn't budge for a good 1/2 hour. In retrospect, I probably should have insisted on taking Clo and Joshua back right after dinner but we were all so excited to be there. Live and learn. I think Chris and Gab were the only 2 to stay awake with energy.

Look at that bone, it must have 5 lb of meat on it!!

So after a very exciting and tiring first day, I didn’t sleep a wink that first night. The air-conditioner upstairs was not working and it was hotter than hell! In the middle of the night I checked on the girls only to find them sprawled out sans covers and sweating profusely. I felt like I felt had been hit by a truck at this point.

I did however also wake up to the sweet smell of freshly brewed coffee and a fridge full of food (thanks Jenna and Nate) I do enjoy my morning cup o’ Joe and Nate did well! When Jenna asked how we slept I debated on saying anything but couldn’t do another 4 nights sans sleep. Jenna said they would call maintenance to fix it, which they did. Slept fabulously the next 4 nights.

The plan today was for Nate and their boys to see the Shuttle Launch and by the time we got up they had left. Jenna will fill in the details. Originally our plan (see itin) called for Epcot today but knowing we’d be there all day tomorrow we opted for MGM (DHS whatev) instead. This did mean that we would be blowing off Le Cellier again!! Keith and Tracy were set to arrive as well. The plan was to meet them in MGM after their dinner. Here are a few photos on the bus:

Gabby:



The girls:



It was bloody hot again. On a side note I so enjoy the ability to cuss without cussing

If memory serves, once we arrived, we all ran to TSM to get FPs for later. Ya know, MGM is just not a great little kids’ park. It’s just not and although it has TSM, RnR, and the Great Movie Ride, it’s my least favorite Disney park. There I said it, I own it, it’s mine. Joshua didn’t want to try RnR – it was closed our last trip- so Jenna stayed and took Emma and Joshua on TSM while Michael and I took the girls on RnR and ToT. RnR kicks butt!!!! When I saw how fast that limo takes off I was so stoked to be finally riding it. I knew it was Tracy’s favorite too so I was really forward to it. It did not disappoint. Tower is Tower and I could give or take it. A few photos:

Michael and the girls in ToT:


In the ToT cue:


More ToT:


After the rides we met back up with Jenna and the babies and decided to get lunch. We ate at Pizza Planet. The food was so-so and smart Michael got us a table upstairs away from the arcade Gabby insisted she did not want pizza and got one of these big greasy meat sticks hence the title: Look at that bone, it must have 5 lb of meat on it!!



After lunch we took the kids on Star Tours and saw this guy sir yes sir:



A few obligatory photos; aren’t they cute?!





Today was miserably hot, like sweaty armpit hot. My DVC thinking hubby decided that he’s a park die hard and didn’t want to take a break. Ever. WTHeck? Where did this come from? So he and Chloe rode RnR again while the rest chilled with a fruity snack:

Gabby and Joshua:






Continued on next post.......................

I swear I think Michael was pouting because we were taking a break But really, these kids look ti-erd!

Gabby and Emma:




Me:


Emma and I. I love this picture:


We arrived back at the Villa and chilled. Jenna had been en communicado with Nate all day and they were headed back. After a nice break my family decided to head back to MGM, we were going to meet Keith and Tracy, and Jenna and Emma would hang back and wait for the boys and meet up with us after.

Again, MGM is just not all exciting when all your son wants to do is ride Star Tours but we did get a few cute photos while Michael took the girls on RnR and ToT over and over again:

Joshua and I:


Joshua. He was so hot with all that hair but refused to wear a hat or let me put it in a ponytail:


Goofy self- portrait:


Toy Story Mania is the best ride in MGM!!!!!!! OMGOsh, I so loved it It’s just brilliant! Joshua rode earlier with Jenna but this was the rest of my family’s first time:

Michael and Joshua. A little blurry but they were moving after all:




Chloe and I. Now I know I look worked but think about it, I had less than 6 hours sleep in almost 3 days. Gak!


While in line for TSM I got messages from Keith and Tracy and Jenna et al. We were to meet up right after the ride and we were so excited to all be together!!!!!

I will stop here so Keith can do he and Tracy’s day up to before we met and Jenna can tell all about the Shuttle Launch and share her photos………………..

I have a few at the pool and bus stop but for some reason didn't get a single photo of the outside Nate may have though. We seemed to take opposite shots!

I sure thought about it but no, I changed our payment date. I wasn't going to but had nightmares about it last night.

please pray that my husband does not find out that this has been released. he's usually on top of this sorta thing and he hasn't mentioned it so i'm thinking he just dropped the ball on this one. he loves metallica and i'll lose him for about a month if he gets it. let's just hope they don't make a tool and/or pink floyd version of rock band because if so i may never see him again.
