How the heck did I get 5 pages behind. WOW! Great updates.
I hear that all the time about the scooter people. They run people over all the time and never apoligize, or they are tooting there horn so they can get around you. Well if I could go faster I would, so I sure as heck am not going to let someone else in front of me to make me take longer to get there. LOL!
I'm loving the ghosts updates too. I love to read this stuff, but if it happened to me I would freak out most likely. LOL!

I'm obviously not done catching up yet but I just had to tell you I almost peed my pants on this, AFTER reading your hilarious explanation of losing the temp.

Still catching up......sad to hear about Rose & Crown, we were thinking about trying it, heard the fish & chips were really good....maybe not so for us LA folk, huh?

Loved your detailed CBR resort info! Totally agree that you get two vacations in one, that's what we LOVE about CBR. We tried POFQ last year and maybe because we're from NOLA we were very disappointed in it, nothing magical for us.

Hey everybody! We just got back from our tent camping trip. The temperature on Friday afternoon was 95 degrees. Yesterday, it was 97. Today, it was 98 when we left Hot Springs, Arkansas. We got home and it was a HOT 100 degrees. We had a great time fishing and doing a whole lot of nothing.

I hope to get another installment up tomorrow.

Lisa

glad ya'll had a relaxing weekend; Hammond has been the hottest in the state throughout the entire week (go figure???) w/ the heat index we have been hitting 106. You would think New Orleans or Baton Rouge would be the hottest w/little trees, bldgs, and car traffic; and we can't go swimming for another week/two w/Ashton...Danny had let the pool go for a while with everything going...he started it back up this weekend can't wait...

The segway accident--that is probably why they banned them from the parks (I think I read that somewhere); I read somewhere that handicap group has a lawsuit for people that have their own and want to use them instead of wheelchairs

can't wait for your next installment...

Great updates, I'm all caught up!

I don't mind Stitch, but I can't stand SGE. Neither can my DH or the E's. We were there when it "previewed" in 2004 and thought it was the worst thing ever. Go figure. We've been shocked it's survived.

I know what you mean about paying off the trip, especially when it includes DDP, it is the BEST feeling!

Oh, well. What can you do, right? Guess that means we'll have to plan another trip....


Darn.
Yep, I guess we'll just have to go back next year and check out the "new" Space Mountain and TTA. Aww, I'm so sad.

I'm so glad to have another Louisiana reader. Isn't it a small world that we both live in West Monroe.

The scooter incident really made us mad. We haven't run into too many inconsiderate scooter drivers over the years but this lady took the cake! All she had to do was say I'm sorry. I mean, she had plenty of time while she was just sitting on his foot!

When I think back on it now, I get the giggles and it's really funny. When it was happening, not such much!

I'm sure with you being from Louisiana, you are like us.....we like our fish coated in corn meal and fried with crispies on the fillets. These were deep fried all right but it was in a batter (which we knew it would be ahead of time and we have eaten fish and chips elsewhere) and it was mushy and greasy.

We love the CBR. Over the weekend, we talked about seeing if we could move our buy 4/get 3 reservation over to the CBR because we love it so much. (We decided to just stay with Pop and use the money to do Disney "extras".)

I've looked at the Port Orleans resorts and I just can't get excited about them. Like you said, I guess being from Louisiana, it's not that exciting to us because the theming is so similar to what we have at home.

I'm current on this thread again! Yay! I can't believe the nerve of some people. The woman ran over your husband's foot and then has the gall to curse and keep moving without so much as an apology. That makes ME mad and it didn't even happen to me!

Love the character pictures. You gotta love Donald leading the group to sing to Hunter. How sweet!

And I was thinking of you over the weekend. I saw a show on Biography channel "Ghosts Caught on Tape" and made me think of you. Wonder if you could put a camera on that bathroom that keeps getting getting unlocked?

This is the first year that we haven't had a pool. For years and years, we had a big above ground pool but last year, the liner got a tear in it and we didn't buy a new one because we thought we'd get an even bigger pool this year. Well, it's June and we haven't gotten one yet. Hunter is having fits to go swimming.

The drive-by runover wasn't with a segway, it was with a scooter.

I don't like Stitch's Great Escape as much as I did Alien Encounter. I know that they got a bunch of complaints about Alient Encounter being too scary for kids but we liked it.

I feel great now that the trip is paid for in full.

We had a wonderful time camping. I think the part that I like best is the fact that nobody knows you, nobody cares if you have messy hair, noboby cares if you wear makeup, etc. etc. We caught lots of fish and grilled outside for every meal. Hot but wonderful!

John was pretty ticked off that she didn't say sorry or anything. It's like she thought it was all John's fault that she ran over him.

My mother told me that I needed to borrow my brother-in-law's night vision camera. It's for watching deer and other animals at night so they know where they are feeding. I am seriously thinking about it.
