That is an awesome present for your parents...they should be thrilled!! Especially with your brother paying half!! I can't wait to hear what else you have planned. I love living so close, cause I can go whenever. We will have our annual passes for disney back next year, I just don't like universal as much!

Hi Dana!!! So glad you made it over. I'll let you all know how they react when they find out.

How fun to be traveling with Mary and Becky again! Can't wait to hear all of your plans!

I can't wait to hear about your parents reactions to their wedding gift! What a fantastic present you and your brother are giving them and I guess that means you'll just have to plan another trip for 2011!! Oh darn!
Hi Wendy! Thanks for stopping by. We've been missing you. I can't wait to stay at the Poly. Your report and Becky's report have me super excited to stay there. Sorry you won't be making it in May but you will have a beautiful new baby and I think you're right; waiting until they can sit up securely in the stroller is probably best. We took Josie on her first trip at 8 months and it was great.

As for the gift, they will have to twist my arm but I guess I will go in 2011 too.

James and I are splitting the expenses down the middle so they should only have to show up and look pretty. I"m sure they will throw a fit about the money but I also think it will show them how much we love and respect them. Yay on the annual passes if I lived within 6-8 hours I'd be all over some AP's.

It is going to be awesome. I can't wait. You guys are going to have to help me come up with something really creative and cool for the presentation at Christmas.

A funny store to lighten your day

I have been going through pics of trips gone by and came across this one and I thought I'd share. It won't be near as funny as watching the video of the live event.



This is a pic of Lindsey on her first trip to WDW. She is about a month away from her 3rd birthday in this pic. This particular morning we had gone to the Crystal Palace for a delicious breakfast with Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, & Eeyore. We had a great time. We finished our breakfast around 9am but it was our last day at Disney and we were heading to Sea World. We decided to skip Mk and just head over to our new hotel near Sea World.

We grabbed a ferry back to the parking lot so we could get on our way. At 9am there are plenty of people riding from the parking lot to MK but we were the only ones on the boat headed from MK to the parking lot. We were so lucky to have Pluto on the boat all to ourselves. The interaction was fantastic. After some play, pictures and autographs Pluto turned around to look across the lake. At this point, Lindsey in her loudest voice screams "EWWWWWWWW MOMMY, PUTO POOOPIED!!!". Joe and I about fell over. Now look at the picture....do you see what she thought was poopy and do you see her hands over her mouth in horror....Pluto must have heard her because he turned around and started acting like he was laughing and acting silly.

Just wanted to share something cute...I know it's not near as funny not seeing it live but maybe it will brighten your day a little.

I love it . Isn't it funny what kids notice? This picture could win a prize. It really looks like she is surprised to see Pluto.

Guess what...I'm pretty sure Jasmine and I are going in January....tell you about it after I read your report

She was so surprised. We were in the middle of potty training so what Pluto was doing was so wrong to her... Never in a million years did we expect it.

Sorry about the laptop. I was wondering where you were. I missed you friend. I'm glad you're back! Can't wait to hear about your plans for January!! You are so lucky to go back so soon.
