Yay! You're there. I love Pop. FYI there are no cots to rent at Pop. (they don't even have them there) Values don't allow a cot in the room. It's something with a fire code. Only a pack and play.
I have been debating on the 50's are next trip. Where abouts were you? We like the poolside in 60's, but was thinking of changing it maybe next trip.

Hey! Jen
our room number was 1453,51, & 49...we were facing the parking lot. But, it was so quiet and nice and close to the elevator (which was nice for my parents and the evenings) and the bldg location was close enough to classic hall for my parents. It was nice too because we were right by the bowling pin pool just off the elevators. I would think either side of the bldg we were in would be nice. Ashton would have probably loved being on the first floor facing the pool. I would have to say for the lay out of the property I would have to request the 50's section again in the future (just my preference for the quiet pool-still close to the main pool and children's pool and close to Classic Hall).

So, you guys decided to go back next year
BTW how is your DH doing with his hips since his surgery?!?
Connie

no offical plans yet, but we're pushing for Dec.
His hip is just OK. He is still having pain and they found he has a peice that is too big sticking out and a muscle is pulling on it. The only way to fix it is to redo it. I am not happy about that. He is letting it go for now, but I am really ticked off about the whole thing. The Dr said he would have to put a smaller peice in if he re did it. this guy is supposed to be great and never has problems and the one time he does it's us.

I was going to try and do another part of Saturday but photobucket is giving me fits...maybe later tonight. Today, I ran a few errands (had to buy moneycards for all Dayne's friends) and I mailed out Dayne's HS graduation announcements...I can't believe my baby boy is graduating already. He has developed a sudden interest in becoming a Wildlife and Fisheries Agent (each month it is something else --he'll figure it out soon I guess). So, I have been researching what he needs to go to school for in order to achieve this career?!?

Poor Ashton! I hope his eye healed fast and he wasn't black, blue & yellow for all of the pictures!
He did not complain too much about his head but if you closely at the picture in his car seat you can see part of the gash...but, it was covered nicely by his hair

I am so sad that Ashton had such a shakey start. Glad he was ok, though

we were so excited; last year only one of our rooms was ready (but, that was nice too. We were able to get everything in our of the hot cars)

Connie, Dayne will change his mind numerous times before he finally settles -- believe me I know. Andy went for a degree in journalism or broadcasting; he did get his Communications B.A., but he is NOW back at school to get his teaching certificate (he starts student teaching in September) and he is paying for it. Markie started out wanting to be a P.E. teacher; then he was going to be an elementary school teacher; he will graduate in 2011 with a degree in Health Wellness (in other words, he can be a personal trainer and do physical therapy); once he graduates, he will come back home and get his teaching certificate. It is best he just get the classes done that he must do his first year.

Kathy,
sounds like your boys are on track!

Gwendolyn started out for her R.N., than she changed to micro/macro biology (she wanted to work for the CDC), now she is working on a major in psycology and a minor in biology. She was suppose to be graduating on May 15 but will be graduating next May! than, after she graduates she will be going back for her teaching certification...yes, that is right she has decided she wants to be a HS biology teacher...:

I just can't believe I have to go through this again in 14 year...LOL!

I really think Dayne will end up working with Danny and operating cranes. Maybe not we'll see...I really thought Dayne would make an awesome teacher and coach and I really think that is what his heart is cut out for...I just hope he realizes it soon! At least he does not have a girlfriend to tie him down or interfere in his decisions, yet.

I hope they are. But if Andy had listened to me in the first place, he would not be paying for his fifth year of education (we gave him four years and Markie five because Markie participated in a sport and it is very difficult to get a degree in four years when you are in a sport...especially wrestling). I told him to get his teaching certificate because I knew he wanted to coach and he wouldn't be able to do that being a newspaper reporter or a sportscaster. Andy has been coaching at the high school in the town next to us for two years (this is his third year) and they had all thought he was getting his teaching degree when he graduated because they would have hired him on the spot. Markie will end up in school six years by the time he is done (if he graduated with his old high school classmates, he'd be graduating on Saturday).

Dayne will figure it out.

Saturday part II

After we checked in to our rooms and delivered all our belongings we went down to the food court to see what good stuff they had in store for us. (Again no food porn--sorry)

Danny & my mom had his usual a meatball sub, Ashton had a pepperoni pizza (not the child one the regular one--he wanted pepperoni and the kids one was only cheese so Danny bought it--I would have shared it had I known that) all he ate was the pepperoni and cheese from it. I had the yummiest shrimp lo-mein. I don't remember what my dad had but he did not like it. Gwendolyn & Joe split a hamburger they ate like that all week I believe they were the only ones not to gain any weight . Dayne and Luke hit the parks after sharing a large pepperoni pizza (they were the only two with 5 day tickets) these two had us worried in the beginning we do not believe they were eating until they found the pizza at Hess.

After, lunch Danny, Joe, and Gwendolyn went to SoG to purchase our tickets (now Danny and Gwendolyn get lost just turning around--so you guessed it they were lost--took them 45 min to find SoG; they had finally programed the GPS). While they were gone, my dad took a nap and my mom and I brought Ashton to the pool. When Danny & the kids returned, (Gwendolyn & Joe had added the water park and others options to their tickets) and hit Disney Quest (which she said was a lot of fun...they went several times). Danny came to the pool with Ashton, mom & I. Around this time we had to move from the bowling pin pool due to an unexpected cleaning of the pool...so we moved to the children's pool. Daddy came down around this time and we all watched Ashton play in the children's area he had a blast...but, boy was that water cold!



ALL THE POOLS WERE OPEN 24 HRS!



After, swimming we went up to the room to shower, my plan was to check out AKL and WL than eat at DTD. But, my parents did not want to resort hop...now, you say well why didn't you go without them...life did not work for me that way this particular week but no worries...I'll get back there some day! and I love hopping through you guys

Once, we got to DTD (DTD was PACKED! we were hoping this was not what was to come in the parks; but, it was Saturday night) we walked through several of the stores while waiting for Gwendolyn and Joe to join us(and let Ashton take a nap in his stroller-he fell asleep on the bus). We than went eat at one of Danny & I's favs: EoS! We shared a salad and Hawaiian BBQ along w/a bowl of tomato soup for Ashton...needless to say we were all full....mom and dad had the club; and you guessed it did not like it...(you will find a trend here)...

After eating we brought Ashton to build his light saber (did you know you can buy these at walmart now...I seen some today)


after dinner we decided we had an early morning so we headed back to the resort for the night!

up next our first day in the parks...where would we start...

First off, cute pics of Ashton this year and last at the rest stop! Poor little guy banged his head

Ashton looks adorable in his Mickey hat at the pool! I feel bad that you guys didn't get to do some things you wanted though, like resort hop. All the more reason to go back, right?

Can't wait to hear about your first park day!

I love the kids pool at POP! How fun!! I stayed at POP when Myles was 9 months old but it was the week after xmas and everything was so crowded... I dont think we ever used the pool. I love Ashton's Stitch Suit... I almost bought that the other day..

I think we are going to eat at EOS on the day we get into Disney. I have heard the tomato soup was good.... (that is one of Owen's favorites so I will have to remember to order that for him!)

Looking forward to hearing about your first day in the parks. BTW... I noticed a picture on Facebook of Ashton sitting on your mom's lap on the scooter! All I could think of was you saying before that you didnt want him on that!!
