We're heading down the 26th of Sept and we'll all be in the MK on the 27th (it's my bday...yayyyy! haha).

Oregondaddy...can't wait to see your photos from the trip. I'm a HUGE photo person too (although I'm a Canon girl...just couldn't do Nikon for some reason!) so I've been trying to improve all my skills. I'll have to go check out your flickr stream cause I'm a huge flickr user as well. Definitely jealous of the 35mm 1.8! I love my 50mm 1.8 but have been eyeing the 35.

I will be sure to post a bunch when we get back, but you will still be there when we return I really like Canon also and it was a tough decision which brand to go with... I am really happy with my Nikon and am glad I went that route... I absolutely love my new lens... It takes incredible pictures... Go check out my Flickr account and let me know what you think... I will have to get a link to yours as well...

Thank you for posting the pictures of your furbabies - they're beautiful! Your Shelbie totally reminds me of the dog my grandparents had many years ago - his name was Cade and he was the sweetest, most tolerant, most loving dog

If we decide to do them, we will take it easy around lunch time until the early evening then head out...
We've never done evening EMH but everything I've read here has made me of them lol I am planning a morning EMH at MK though, that's probably the same thing in terms of crowds LOL

So, I am reworking the dining a bit, we make our ADR's on the 17th so I still have 13 days and I am sure things will change 3,752,365 times before then... Last year we didn't add any sit down meals in addition to the 9 that came with the dining plan and that is what the kids are after, not sitting in restaurants more than they are playing or swimming... I can respect that... I think I need to remember that we will be back after this, so I don't have to fit it all in on this trip...
Smart cookies, your kids Relaxing on arrival day so that you can take your time and enjoy your resort when you get there is lovely!

I think we all rework our ADRs a lot, don't we?!

Oh no, I hope she is ok! And a big wooohoooo on Mama's money!

Yikes! Stay safe and let us know you're OK when you can

All I could say was "Uh Oh!" and "I'm gonna puke" He tried to shove my head away from him and my brother on the other side of me was laughing as butt off... I did not throw up, but I did not feel well for the rest of the day... Neither one of my brothers would ride anything with me for the rest of the trip...
Oh. My. Gosh. Seriously. Although I was never going on M:S anyway, that just cemented my resolve LOL No way am I riding something with barf bags (well, except for a plane LOL).

Jumping on great planning so far. Love the pics.

EMH can be cool with little ones but plan your day accordingly if we do a night EMH we go back to resort to "chill" in the afternoon. That way we don't have crabby kids or adults. Well ok lets be honest here crabby daddy is more like it. Kids & I did BTMRR in the dark for the first time this year it was fantastic!

Make sure you guys do the Kim Possible missions in WS they are soooo much fun. I think Chuck & I enjoyed them more than the kids.

Welcome Aboard!!! We will take it easy during the day if we plan on doing EMH's that night... I am afraid I would rip my husband's head off if we didn't...

I am really looking forward to trying out the Kim Possible missions... I think the kids will really like it...

Today our countdown hits 101 days until start vacation... So, of course the ONLY logical thing to do today is watch a Disney movie... There was obvious choice...


101 Dalmations!!!!

So, I am sitting my my bed on my laptop, with both kids laying with me and 2 dogs snoring and 2 cats that want to lay on my chest... It just doesn't get any better... Well, unless I could go to Disney now... But since Terry is at work, probably not an option...

We are down to just double digits!!

We are down to just double digits now... It is gonna fly by now!! I will post a pic of our countdown we have been doing since February tonight... My wife made a poster with all the monthly calendars on it and the kids take turns every day putting a sticker on today's space... I am heading to work, so when I get home tonight, I will show it to you... Figured I would add the next countdown image I made...

We are doing the happy dance at the Oregonparentsof2 household this morning... Be thankful you are not here, cause none of us can dance...




Now for my version of "99 Bottles of Beer on the Walls"

99 Lapu Lapus at the Poly, 99 Lapu Lapus, order one up and drink it down...

DH is working graveyard overtime tonight, so I am sitting here, completely redoing our plans for the trip... If I keep this up, he may disown me... I call for ADR's next Wednesday, hoping that I don't have any issues getting what I want...

The kids are very excited that we are in double digits now... If I knew how to post pictures I would show everyone the countdown that we started in February... But it will have to wait until Terry can do it... He is on 6 days straight and at like 80 hours worked in those 6 days, so he is a bit tired...

Have a great night and hopefully we will get this thing more interesting and some pictures put up...

One thing I can say about Terry is he has a great work ethic... They call him a lot and ask if he will come in like right NOW, and work a 12 hour shift... They know they can count on him and he will be there within 20 minutes of the call...

We live in Salem... I lived in Bend for a while, but back then it was just a small desert town... I gotta say I prefer the green in Salem to the desert of Bend...
I also like being an hour from the beach...
