Oh man, Katie - was I supposed to send out that memo? I thought you were going to do it! No wonder there were so many stinkin' people there



Glad you started and I'm looking forward to hearing all about the adventures of Katie, Shelby and Flat Beth!

I will be honest, I shuddered when I read the word blister.

When I went last May, it was hot hot hot and crowded which I wasn't expecting. I don't think I'd go in May again but that is just me.

I can't wait to hear more about your trip and all of your DIS meets!

Great minds think alike. I just edited and uploaded my day 1 pics and I'm ready to start my TR. But look who beat me to it! It was hot, wasn't it????? It was weird to go from temperate to HOT! But I have been freezing all week since I got home!

I came over from Wigd's TR. I have got to hear how you handled the heat since I'm going in July (not too excited about the heat!!)

I was going to title this TR "how to survive heat, crowds and blisters and still manage to have a great trip" but it was too long yeah, we had a great time!

I am so glad you got to take the grown-up trip. I hope you will help other moms realize that it might be a good and healthy thing for them to go and be a kid again themselves sometime.

I'm ready to hear about your fun.
It wouldn't be a good TR without you here!

I truly did worry about feeling so guilty during this trip that I wouldn't enjoy it. Turns out it was just what I needed!! Every Mommy should take a trip away!

I was there in June 2008 and other than the lack of afternoon thunderstorms, it felt very similar. My parents joined us one day and my Mom kept asking why all those kids weren't in school

I probably didn't complain about the blisters because sitting to drink margaritas didn't bother them! (and after a couple, they bothered me less )
