DDad says. "You're killing me, you're killing me!"

Ah yes, the rockers with plenty of room for friends. Thanks for your most kind invitation. We would love to join you, unfortunately you have already returned home. So we will have to do it another time! Where will you be in early May?

Thanks for the pictures. Nice to see just what it is our MF's are doing.

Hi tea pot! DDad and I were just talking about you this evening. Hope all is well.

Hello SSR owners and lovers!

We just returned from 4 nights/ 5 days at SSR and it was FANTASTIC! This was our second visit to SSR. We requested a DTD view studio and got exactly what we asked for! We had a ground floor room in Congress Park..number 2147. Just outside our room was the playground, quiet pool and DTD! The bus service was perfect the entire trip. I don't know if we just got lucky or what..but we never had more than maybe a 2 min wait! On Tuesday night when it was stormy we hung out at the Turf Club Lounge. It was great! The entire staff at SSR was wonderful and we can't wait to stay there again!!!!

Glad to hear you had a nice trip!
Thanks for the pictures. Would sure be nice to have some Florida sun instead of Ohio snow!

I don't know how all you people deal with that! Snow and cold! I was looking at the pictures thinking how pretty they looked, but it looked to me like "cold" sun not humid Florida Sun!

You learn to deal with it Alison! Believe me, growing up in So Cal it was definitely an adjustment when we first moved - but after all these years it's just normal. It was pretty nice getting out of the cold earlier this week for 3 days of 50's & 60's - and yes, it felt warm! I was even at Typhoon Lagoon on Monday enjoying myself greatly before heading back north to single digits and snow. My boys are actually camping in the snow this weekend!

I grew up in Nor Cal and we had weather there, when all the rains nearly washed So Cal away last December, I realized how lucky we are with our weather here. I couldn't take the humidity in Florida all the time, I can handle it for our vacations, but sometimes not even then.

Good luck to everyone out there fighting the snow storms and rotten weather! Think of us in Sunny So Cal without the humidity!

Oh yeah I hear you. It was fun growing up there and going to VISIT the snow where my grandparents lived, playing in it, sledding and going home again to the mild So Cal weather... or to stay in our nice warm condo in the winter in Mammoth... but to live in it yourself is so different. Haha, I still love the time when we lived in Michigan and the temp (before the windchill) was -35... and it was 65 in L.A. and we called the family to tell them about the 100 degree difference! One visit my MIL came to see us and didn't think about it, and stepped outside shortly after her shower (without blow drying her hair), and it froze into icicles! She and I still laugh about that one 12 years later.

And yes - they are out camping in the snow. This year's camporee is actually warmer than last year too. It was around 29 today - last year that weekend didn't get above 4.

I will say though, that when I stayed at SSR last weekend - it was quite windy on Saturday - so it was fun to see all of the CM's running around in their big heavy coats since it was, to them anyway, cold.

Growing up in an area where you could look forward to sled riding, ice skating, building snow forts, and sitting around a big fire and enjoying the heat every weekend has its plusses.

It is when you get older and have 50+ years of memories of shoveling the drive and walks; slipping on the ice; fighting to get your car out (or back into the garage for that matter!); scraping your windshield after a long day at work; and reading a wet newspaper that you begin to understand the Snow Bird concept. This winter has shown itself to be especially delightful with seven or eight monster type storms proving all of the kids lots of opportunitiy to miss school and tweet their friends (as if that increased much).

Looking forward to the rockers at SSR; relaxing at the pool with an adult beverage; walking through the green landscaping; wearing shorts!

We are heading down in just over 3 weeks and really looking forward to sitting in the rocker's and some warmer weather. Going to ESPN the Weekend and to checkout the flowers at EPCOT Head over to DTD for Earls and some ice cream watch the sunset along the lake. Maybe hit the Turf Club for some prime rib Anyone going the first week of March?

Paddock pool progress pics

These were taken Jan 29th.

The first one is what you see of the lakeside bank as you're coming across the bridge:



The rest of the pictures were taken from the stairwell of the building next to the pool:
