Thanks, probably because I am old enough to be your grandmother. I could always use more grandchildren. 4 is not enough.

Lovin' your TR. I took my mom to Disney for her 60th b-day- just her and I and we loved every minute of it! We even had a little bit of rain on our AK day, but nothing like the rain you ended up with. Your family sounds like a lot of fun. Can't wait to read more.

Are you near my area? SW Missouri you know. That was a good girl to take your mom for her 60th. I know I won't get to go back for mine but whatever my family does for me will be great.

Yes we had our share of rain the whole trip. Didn't even care. Just got wet and dry and wet and dry and wet and well you get the picture.

Yes, we are north of you and have been to "THE CITY" many times. We love the Great Wolf Lodge there and of course, W.O.F! My kids and dh haven't been to Disney and it will be my second time, so we are very, very excited to go. October can't get here fast enough.

You are way north of me. We are down in Springfield. Near Branson and Silver Dollar City. We have been to Great Wolf tho and WOF many times when the kids were younger. How exciting for you to take your children to the World for the first time. As old as my children are I can still remember the look on their faces that first time. Remember I am a sap. When it comes to my family that is the only way I can be.

Yes, we are way north. My mom took my sister and I to Branson when I was a freshman in college. It was such a memorable trip.

I truly can't wait to see the looks on their faces. Hannah asked me yesterday what I was looking forward to the most and that is what I am most looking forward to. She doesn't get it, though. She thought that was a crazy thing to look forward to. I am a sap too

My younger daughter (Sheri) once told me that you have no idea how much you love your mother until you have a child of your own. Hopefull someday Hannah will get to experience that too.

Be thankful you don't have to actually hear me sing Happy Birthday 'cause my singing voices is horrible.

Love the Ohana pictures. John wouldn't have liked it at all because you know his thoughts on Stitch. Hates him!

I can't wait to see how many of the 27 fastpasses you use!
I have already told you how I sing. I wasn't allowed to sing to him either.

Rain, Surprise Birthdays, Rain, First Visits and did I mention Rain? 7/14 Updat

Our first shot of the day.



So I left off with all of those FP's to Mission Space but the first thing we did was watch Alex play in the water



Well Alex and Sheri played in the water. I am not sure who the kid is.

Tim walked around in awe of everything. Remember this is his first Disney trip. He absolutely loved it. These are a few shots he got. I think most of them include his son.








After the silliness we head over to TT. We all rode. Don was the only one who wasn't crazy about it. We forgave him. Our redneck picture was awful. We are sitting like bumps on logs watching the world go by. We really did like it. I loved the speed. (I've gone nuts.)

We (everyone but Don and Mike) rode Mission Space. I wasn't sure if I liked it or not. But I wasn't really ready to do it again. Sheri, Sandi and I all got a little woozey.

We managed to sneak in Ellen's show. It was ok. I think Don and Mike managed their mid-day nap. They are over 60 ya know. It is in need of updating. We then worked our way over to Soarin. By far the best ride of the day for me. We all loved it. Even Don who has this inner ear problem and he gets dizzy real quickly. First time up we got front row center. Couldn't have been any better.

We then headed over to Nemo. Cute show.



The problem with nine people at Disney is that most rides seat 2, 4, or 6. We always seem to have an odd man out. We would just take turns for the lone rider. Lucky Alex always knew he would have a partner though because we wouldn't let him ride by himself.

It had been raining off and on the whole day and when we came out of Nemo it was once again pouring. We headed back over to the land to ride Soarin.
Our seats weren't as good this time but it was still an awesome ride. We all decided we needed dinner. It was around 6:00 pm, it was raining. What else can we do? We head to Sunshine Seasons. We all found food that we liked and it was good. I was actually amazed that it was as good as it was. It was very busy as no one else wanted to be out in the rain either. Imagine that. But we all had a relaxing meal.


These are a few shots we got on the way out for the night.

Andrew is just like his Grandma and Fantasia is our favorite movie.



We did not get to use our other TT ticket but they told us we could bring it back the next day and they would honor it. Nice. And the other 20 Mission Space tickets? Well, we found a group of middle school children on a class trip. They were excited to get to use them and we were glad they did not go to waste.

I do think that a lot of people are confused on the FP time. You can use the FP any time that day after the first time given on the pass. So you don't have to be there within that hour time frame. I heard lots of people complaing that they were in line for one ride when their fp time came up and they were going to miss out. They were much happier when the realized the could use it anytime that day.

All in all it was a perfect birthday for Mike and we appreciated him sharing it with us. So thank you Mike.

We head back to CSR and the rain stops so the boys all head out for an evening swim.

On our way in from the parking lot Alex spies this little guy.

[IMG][/IMG]

I was in the middle of a really good book and Austin takes off somewhere. Finally around 1 am no Austin and my book is done so I send him a text and he said he would be in after bit so I told him good nite. I never heard him come in but he was sleeping when we awoke the next morning. He had been out texting his peeps most of the night and enjoying the quiet and awe of CSR.

I am glad it shows on my face. Wouldn't it be terrible to be in Disney and have a grumpy face? My husband does not always smile for pictures. He is always happy just not smiley. We truly had such a wonderful time.
