Thanks for posting those pics of the castle - you know, even if it's someone else's first glimpse of the castle, it still seems so MAGICAL to me and it takes me back!
Your post is almost word for word what I was about to say. So, I'll just say DITTO!

I LOVE seeing the castle for the first time each trip. It is just a great feeling knowing you just got there and have so much fun ahead. I am waiting to here more.

Sometimes, I absolutely hate photobucket. It has a mind of it's own.

This little icon here could best describe how I feel about all those "lost posts" that I have been looking for!

When I was doing my TR, I found it best to "copy" it before I submitted just in case it went into Neverland. There is nothing more frustrating than typing something up, long and detailed and then having it disappear!

You sure have that right. I think it is because it took me so long to get the pics lined up that it timed me out. I'm starting again now.

Rain, Surprise Birthdays, Rain, First Visits and did I mention Rain? Update 7/7Part2

So we head to Chef Mickey's for our 5:15 ressie. They weren't too busy but they made us wait with a beeper for 15 minutes. We did take the standard plate picture but is was not at all good. I will show the only one we got.

[IMG][/IMG]

Dinner was ok. Nothing great but edible. Atmosphere was awesome. The characters started coming not long after we sat down.

[IMG][/IMG]

Now everyone in our household knows Mickey belongs to Sheri. So this is how Commando takes charge.

[IMG][/IMG]

She needs her dancin' time with the Big Cheese.

[IMG][/IMG]

The rest of us did manage to have some character time also. Despite her objections.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

And then the adult boys needed their girlfriend time. It was a war with those two all week.

[IMG][/IMG]

[IMG][/IMG]

I know you will never believe this one but it started raining at 5:30. It rained for almost 4 hours. Not just rain but a regular downpour with thunder, lightning and the works. You could not even see MK from the CR.

So that gave us time to kill for sure. What does every family do when they have time on their hands? Try on hats of course.

Here is my little bride and groom. (of many years.)

[IMG][/IMG]

Then we had to get the Birthday girl and boy.

[IMG][/IMG]

A mom and son:

[IMG][/IMG]

The cooks and helper??

[IMG][/IMG]

After pictures we shopped while the boys played in the Arcade. Spent the cash I had brought over for the evening so we decided we needed to get back to MK.

Upon arrival our first stop was Buzz. I have been very excited for this ride as I wanted to beat Austin the gameplayer of the family. We had a small bet on this one. Austin rode with Sandi and I rode with Don. I was so excited when it was over I knew I had to be the winner.

[IMG][/IMG]woohoo:

And then Austin showed me his score:

[IMG][/IMG]

I was totally bummed. He did declare me the winner because I reached the high score before he did. He truly loves me.

We then head to Laugh Factory. Lucky Mike was chosen to play Mike with one eye:

[IMG][/IMG]

He played his part very well. It was an ok show.

I then made everyone do COP. They were more than thrilled.

Ok, they weren't. But they did it for me cause if Grandma ain't happy ain't nobody happy. That's the rules. There were all of 15 people in there including the nine of us. So sad. It really needs to have something done.

While on that end we went to see Stitch. OMG. Do not care for that show. Everyone says Aliens was way better. I think most anything would be better. And we love Stitch. Huge disappointment.

Then we stopped for Teacups. I did not drive but my dear hubby did get me a cappacino while we waited.

[IMG][/IMG]

We then headed to ISW because once again I am in charge. They had updated the que since I was last there (1983) and painted the little dolls but it too needs a big change. Everyone did tolerate my whims. Thank goodness. They just didn't want to hear me cry.

When we had gotten of teacups it started raining again. We had planned to do some repeat rides but we were tired of being wet at that point so headed to the bus to get home.

Once again Tim and Mike had a cigar and beer to finish their evening and we sat around talking till about 2:00 am. Another big day for Monday planned.

We have dinner reservations at Chef Mickey's on our Magic Kingdom day too. We have never eaten there. From what I've read, including your report, the food is just so-so. Oh well, I'm going for the atmosphere anyway.

The hat and apron pictures are too cute.

And, how sweet is Austin to say you won even if his score was 999,999. Awwww!

The food was ok, cornbread was delish with the butter. The make your own sundaes were good. Not at all sorry we ate there. As stated, it is an atmosphere thing.

My kids do have a way of showing off.

Austin is a very sweet kid. He knows what Grandma can do for him. We have a special bond. He was intensive care for 9 days when born as was his Mom. I worked next door to the hospital so I fed him every bottle for those first nine days while spending nights at the hospital in his Mother's room. We bonded more than most Grandmas get the chance too.

Hunter and my mom have a tight bond too. My mother and I, literally, share a driveway. We are on 2 acres and she is on 1. When Hunter was born, she had just retired and stayed home with Hunter. She took him outside even when he was still an infant and they would swing on the back porch swing nearly all day long. Sometimes, I wonder if she thinks Hunter is her's or John and I's.

I so understand that. We lived in the same house for 32 years and 3 years ago I told my DH that I was ready to move and I hoped he moved with me. Lucky for me he agreed. It is exactly a 3 minute drive and a 15 minute walk to Sheri's house. The house we bought was mutual friends of ours and Sheri's so while they were building their house we moved in with Sheri for 9 months. (our house sold in one day). I cried like a baby when we moved from her house to ours. I'm happy now in my own house again but we literally have dinner together 3-5 nites a week. I think Mike being older has helped. He and Don are good friends and Sheri and I are best friends. I know she is still my daughter but I don't always look at her with that "mother" face. Most times it is as friends. Them being self-supporting helps. Age does wonders with parents and children.
