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.
Oh! Jen I am so sorry to hear that!
Danny's knee does not line up just right since his; but, he said it is not something he cannot live with. I bet he does have some pain if the transplant material is larger than it should have been. Danny's bones are so large that they had to quickly change in the OR to a different size the doc said he did not think his bone was that big...I don't blame either of you for not wanting to go through it again this soon. Maybe he will be able to hang in there for a few years that way he won't need a replacement as soon when he gets older. We figure Danny will need two more in his lifetime (I hope only one but time will tell)...

Wow, the water was cold?
When we had went to POP's pool, it was warm- we thought the pool must have been heated or something! And we went a few weeks before you... how odd!

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!
Yes, Pam I think the next time will be Ashton and I only and I'm sending Danny to a nascar race (he has never been and he has been wanting to go for years). In fact I was looking at when the last race is scheduled the other day but I really think it is something I would like to do next year (just a thought)....I have the last three race weekends saved on the WDW website w/price quotes :lamo:

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!!
Nickie, I don't care for tomato soup but I really like EoS...mom tried w/the EVC each time she would turn it off to stop and wait for someone or something she had him on her lap; she did try one time to ride with him and I swooped him up and did not let him near her for a long time afterwards. Daddy told her she was a child who liked to push my buttons

I'm sorry Sara, the pools were warm enough to swim in but the children's pool with the sprayers were COLD... the pools on the other hand were about 80 something not hot by any means but swimable.

I can tell from Ashton's face that the water was cold.

Sorry to hear that your parents aren't lovin' the Disney food.

The photos are so cute of Ashton! He looks like he is having a blast- but it does look like the water is cold from the expression on his face in one of the photos.
I didn't have a clue that they sold those lightsabers at WalMart.

I sure hope you had a great time and your parents did not drive you crazy! I am worried that DMIL will drive me up the castle wall, through it, back up the wall to get out of the castle and back down the wall...

Stephanie, I had a wonderful time...could I have had a better time...YES!
could they have had a better time YES!

sending you a PM!

groups with different interest should split up! sometimes a week together all the time for a week is too much! especially with me and my dad's personality

If not pick up what the guys would like and head over to EoS for yourself and sit outside on their nice little covered area. We did that last year, we picked up Wolfgang mac n cheese for Ashton and we ate EoS.
We really enjoy their soups, sandwiches, mixed salads, and now their tossed salads...

OT: Clairfication

Real quick for those of you just joining along I think a quick background explaniantion of my parents and them joining....

my mom is slightly handicapped (what does that mean) she FX her spine when she was 16 yrs old, while daddy was in the Army in CO(they married young when he was drafted). Well, she was told she only walked again because of her age at the time...

so, she has a very hard time walking for long distances (so, they rented her an ECV), Dad loves to travel but to God made places: the mountains, islands, national parks (in fact he asked me our last night at disney if they had one close he would go do that instead of US ). So, he does not care for amusement parks of any kind and he hates to spend money!!! can you say tight wad...

My children and I are very close to both of my parents and I love to travel with them to the mountains...not to the beach or places like Disney...in fact I am hoping that they join Danny and I next year when we go to Yellowstone!

I believe if they would have said they were coming in the beginning and I would have been able to make some ADR's for them along with letting them know what my goals were things would have been happier for all...

This trip was for them to be with Ashton (I can understand that--they did it with the older children twice) but, in the way they complained about things (food--the older kids not being around) we ended up missing out on alot of things for Ashton; which in turn made me upset and each time dad would complain about something it made me feel bad(I felt like a teen again that did something wrong by accident); I felt like I needed to keep everyone happy....after all isn't this suppose to be the happiest place on Earth!

So, did we have fun?!? YES! I had a great time...would things have gone smoother with a better understanding, before we left; DEFINATELY!!! I had really thought we did that two weeks before we left

So, if you are traveling with a group and you are all on the same page it should be great...but, I would add that I do believe you should have some personal time; it keeps everyone fresh and happy!

Ohh, thanks for clearing it up
When we went the kids play area with the water spraying stuff, was closed. So, we didn't get to try that out
