Happy Mothers day!

If you do Vegas, you could spend 2-3 days there and then drive over to California and hit DL for a couple of days. I really want to go to DL someday, But Skip says the plane ride is too long. It will happen someday though.

I like your Spring idea. I actually have thought about telling Skip if we go in Ded. thant he can come for 3-4 days (thats enough for him) and Claire and I will stay the full 7 days and then come home. I would love it, but I think Claire would miss her daddy. I would miss him too, but I think we could do some things together and it would be special. Plus we could stay longer with out Skip worrying about what is going on at home.
I really need to just win the lottery and then all my trip troubles would be taken care of. LOL!

She became a wonderful friend to many! We could talk with her about ANYTHING! we talked on the phone reguarly! I remember for my birthday she surprised me with a phone call and I had not even realized I had listed my phone number (on FB). We had talked so often about meeting one another that I just felt like it was a given and would happen with in the next year.

Right after Christmas she was diagnosed w/ lukemia; this was to be an easy fight for her...two years before she beat a rare form of thyroid cancer.

I am sad to say that last night she lost her battle.

I know that she is no longer in pain and sitting w/the Lord looking down w/the great big smile that she always shared. (Even without seeing her face you could hear it in her voice and words)...

she lived for her two girls and her grandchildren! and quickly adopted many of our children...

I would like to dedicate this trip report in her memory...the last thing we shared was a comment she left on FB about how happy Ashton appeared and how she had liked his new haircut! (I had posted a few pictures while we were in WDW)
she enjoyed traveling with each of us and sharing in our everday lives!
You stated that perfectly. I know I will miss Ginny terribly, too.

Awww no food porn?? Hehe, itís ok!! Yay for going to buy tickets but boo for getting lost!! At least they were able to add the water park and other options to their tickets and at least it was worth it at Disney Quest!

I was surprised about the pool being open 24 hours also!! Here where I work, the pool is only open 830am-630 pm! So I was really happy to know their pools were 24 hours! Woohooo!!

Awwww too bad you couldnít resort hop!! I learned on this trip that itís soo much fun! Itís also great to scope out other resorts for the next trip! OOoooohh EoS!!!!! Iíve never had it before but Iím craving to go back!! And we donít have it here in Hawaii!!

Great pics of rope drop! You have to wait for my TR to see if we caught an MK RD!! Great pic with Pluto and the castle in the background!! And super cute pics with chip and dale!!

Canít wait to hear more!!

p.s. so sorry to hear about your dear friend Ginny. I never knew her but she sounds like such a great person! My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go to her family & loved ones!!
Glad you found me! I can't wait to hear all about your trip! We do not have an EoS here either...

What a lovely tribute to Ginny. I'm sure she will be missed.
I had read on another TR where they stopped at the bakery on the way out and picked up rolls for the morning...I thought that was a great idea but again my parents were running out of the park when we left the last night and we had planned to return on Sunday but well you'll have to wait to see what happened...but next time-yum!

Magic Kingdom part II

I left off with us just meeting up with my parents...where did we start?!?
Tomorrowland of course...we always start this way ...as long as I can remember we always go to the right!

:WARNING WARNING! I'm sharing these next few pictures but they are really bad (of me, of course) I have very very thin hair and boy when I seen the pictures I realized how much weight I have gained--but, it was very windy and the sun was directly in our eyes...can you say major diet time...Danny and I came home and I have been cooking healthier but I really need to drink water and exercise (I know it but can't get motivated to "just do it"!...back to the report...




don't know why I don't have a picture of my parents here...I know I have photopass photos will have to add after I receive our photopass...
when Dayne seen these pictures he said why don't we have any family shots...well we all have to be together for that to happen he could never seem to make it to any of the parks at the same time as the rest of us!

wouldn't this make a great spot for a wedding or gathering of any sort

this is the view of the castle you would have

As we were walking pass Monster's Laughing Floor I told Danny call back my parents and let's start here...he looks at me and says its not open yet lets come back...now I know it was open and there were two CM's standing at the opening...I really think he just did not want to go there...
they decided to skip Stitch, too (I never do that attraction not crazy about the thought of being in the dark with an alien breathing on me) so where do we start?!? ...


.... Buzz Lightyear of course...with only a 5 min wait





now we did not Carousel of Progess last year (it was either closed or we just skipped it...we were walking past it and my dad said what is this seems I remember it but not quite...and well there were seating with no wait ...so here we go (I had not ridden this since 2001 so it really was time to ride it again --or sit through it...)

not sure what this was about?!?

Ashton really did well on this; it seemed to hold his attention...Danny and my dad both napped!
so sit back and ride along with us..."It's a great big beautiful tomorrow"




now that we have rested from our hard start...moving on...

Now, we are in Tomorrowland...where to next...the People mover of course (this was closed last year--so we had to take Joe on it...and I'm one of those people who have no clue why...but, I just love this ride (especially in the summer months)





from here Gwendolyn, Joe, and Danny went to ride Space Mountain (I don't know why I didn't go--I normally like SM) but, instead my parents and Ashton and I went to the restroom (probably why I did not go with them)..
it was about 10:30 and I was starving, my mom takes alot of medication and really needed to eat (she did not eat breakfast either)...well cosmic rays was just opening so off e went...
well, only station 1 and 2 were open so our choice was roasted chicken and/or ribs OR hamburgers...
Ashton & I shared a 1/2 roasted chicken w/mashed potatoes and green beans and an order of fries for Ashton to munch...
my parents ordered each a dbl cheese burger and missed the toppings isle ...
this is when my dad sees what he is going to search for and eat the rest of his trip *ROASTED CHICKEN*
Gwendolyn, Joe and Danny joined us (we were finished eating but sat and waited with them)...Gwendolyn and Joe shared a burger and Danny had his own along with all the fixings (needless to say Dad was upset with himself for not seeing it)..
after a full tummy waiting to move on...


.Dayne and Luke met up with us as we were leaving Cosmic Rays (they had eaten left over pizza from the night before--I really am happy those two did not get sick--they ate room temp pizza that was out all night--ewe!)

up next Fantasyland!
