Hi Michelle!

I just followed your link from kcandbella's PTR. Our trips will overlap a few days...we will be at POR April 28 - May 3. I'm loving your PTR so far. Your pics from the zoo are fantastic! Do you mind me asking what kind of camera/lens you have?

Can't wait to hear more!
Jen

I listen to the Soarin' music almost every morning in the car because, secretly, I wish I could start off every morning with a ride on it.
As Katie said, they are only booking the dessert party through May right now, but I really can't imagine that they won't extend it - if it's profitable and popular you know they will!

I'm looking forward to the GFC and the school bread too - I've got quite a few 'firsts' on this trip, can't wait to experience it all!

Oh my gosh, that Soarin' music just makes me happy I listen to Mouse House Radio on Live365 and everytime it comes on it just makes me smile.

I can't wait to try school bread and am excited to eat at GFC as well!

Behind the seeds sounds fun to me too, can't wait to hear about it!

Jackie, they are only booking the dessert party through May right now so you have time still!
I know! The food is the best part

With the boys, we've never been able to do any of the tours so I'm looking forward to them!

We got snacks in Norway last trip and I think that it is one of the best kept secrets in WDW! Such a charming place and soooo fresh and delicious! I am interested in reading about the sandwiches! Yum!

We stayed at the Grand Floridian in 08 and I poked my head into the GF Cafe. Soooo pretty, can't wait to read your review. Sounds like a GREAT Epcot day. I am sooo jealous
And people say WDW is just for kids - I'm finding in my planning that there is PLENTY to keep adults only happy!

I've never even been in the bakery at Norway but I've read good things about it, can't wait to try it!

I looked inside the GFC when we went to the GF to see the Christmas decorations in December and yes, it was very pretty - I hope the food is good too

First---sounds like you had a fabulous trip to Memphis with Don and the boys. I have never been to the Civil Rights Museum, or Graceland. The zoo, however, I have been to and it is a really good one.

Love your day 2 and 3 plans for you and your mom. Have you eaten CS at Yak/Yeti? The menu looks really good. We may have to try that in May.

Glad you got your Wishes dessert party booked. Your mom will love it!
Hi Michelle! Welcome home!!

Memphis was fun and that zoo was so nice.

I haven't eaten at the Yak & Yeti CS yet, just the TS, but the menu looks good and we really enjoyed the TS when we went, so I'm betting we'll like the CS too.

I'm so excited about the dessert party!

We will probably relax in the AM, then head to Epcot in the early afternoon. We have dinner ressies at Teppan Edo that evening. That school bread looks really yummy!!!
I'll keep an eye out for you at Epcot on Monday, we'll probably be there all day until our dinner ADR. We ate at Teppan Edo in December and all really liked it - the kids love watching the chefs cook too!

I bet that was a fun concert! The Black Eyed Peas were here not too long ago with U2, they were playing at the OU football stadium. I begged and begged and begged to go but Don couldn't be talked into the $100+ tickets. Two of the couples that we hang out with all the time went and said it was great!

Your day sounds great! You will love school bread. Yummo! The GFC looks so pretty. I glanced in there last summer when we were resort hopping.
I bet they will extend the dessert party, they brought it back so it must have been a money maker for them - if they are making money on something I can't imagine that they wouldn't keep it around

Hi Jen and to my PTR! Glad you followed me over!

Thanks for the compliment on my pics. I have a DSLR Canon Rebel xsi, I love it! Almost all of the zoo pics were taken with the zoom lens, it's a Canon lens EFS 55-250mm. The one thing about the DSLR that is kinda of a pain is switching out the lenses - if I wanted to take a picture of the boys many of the times I had to switch out the lens, take my picture and then put the zoom lens back on for the animal shots. Takes some extra time, but the results are worth it

5 WEEKS FROM TODAY!!!!




This weekend should keep me busy, both boys are playing in a baseball tournament (thankfully at the same park!). The park is about a 45 minute drive from our house. Both of them had a game last night and both have 2 today, 1 each definitely tomorrow and then more if either of their teams finish in the top 4 and move on to bracket play. Only problem is the stupid wind is blowing like crazy this weekend! Last night it was 20-30 mph, they say today is going to be worse with gusts up to 50 mph it's coming out of the south right now, but is supposed to turn from the north later this afternoon - that could be flat cold!!

YAY for FIVE WEEKS!!!

Have fun today with all the ballgames. Sounds like it may be cool with the wind, especially when the sun goes down. Hope your boys' teams win!

I knew it! I have an xsi as well! I love it so much I'm surprised I haven't named it! I haven't invested in any additional lenses yet...but I have my heart set on a 50mm fixed...now I want the zoom lens. Sigh...

Oh my gosh! The wind was horrible today! It was so cold - like you said, just cold isn't too bad to deal with, but throw in that wind and its awful I sure hope tomorrow is better weather wise.

I love watching my kids play baseball, but today it was not fun - that wind was bad! It's been a tale of two tournaments for the boys. Jared's team is 3-0 with one pool play game to go, they are pretty much assured of making the championship bracket. Justin's team on the other hand is 0-3, yikes! They were competitive, just came up short all three games. They have one game tomorrow and that will be it for them this weekend.

Tracy
I need to look over my packing list, I'm such a nerd - I keep one saved in excel and just tweek it for each trip. It's time to start tweeking!

I can't wait for my Mickey Mail! It will go to my TA though, she will hold the ME tags until the travel packet comes in and then send it to me all together, so I've probably got a couple more weeks.

Unfortunately we don't own any sleeping bags - I may need to go get one for tomorrow though! It was c-c-c-cold today! I was bouncing back and forth between two different fields watching the boys play - Justin's field wasn't so bad because the wind was at our back, but on Jared's it was in our face, so yes, we ate more than our fair share of dirt today!

The zoom lens is great! I used it last trip to WDW on the safari, in the shows, and for the Candlelight Processional - got some really nice pics!

We went to the Razorback Baseball game last night and I was freezing with the wind. This morning I woke up with a lovely stuffy nose from the wind blowing crap in the air. DH, DS & DD went to the game this afternoon - wind was crazy! I stayed home and had a nap.... Hope you fair well at the ball park!

Michelle, I say head out and get a sleeping bag so you can zip yourself up in that thing and stay warm....
Target or Walmart either will do.
