Glad you started and I'm looking forward to hearing all about the adventures of Katie, Shelby and Flat Beth!
I'm not sure any of us thought we needed to send that memo!

I can't wait to hear more about your trip and all of your DIS meets!
I thought a lot about you and wished I had brought your foot care kit...do you know how much they want for moleskin at the resort shops? Luckily Mom and Dad had a Walgreens near their hotel and picked me up some.

I guess I don't remember your trip being hot and crowded...just rainy!

I was feeling guilty that so many others beat me to it, glad I at least snuck in ahead of you

It has been terribly cold here since my return. It was so strange to go from sweating in shorts and t-shirts to shivering in sweats!

I think part of the problem was the shock of the heat! It had barely gotten into the 70's in Iowa and to jump straight to the 90's so unexpectedly was hard to handle.

Gosh, I'm a little overwhelmed with all the newcomers to my TR so let me give a collective



Hopefully I will get the first real update this weekend. I still need to do some wading through the 3,591 pictures I took. No, that's not an exaggerated number...that's how many I took (and that doesn't count my PP pics, those taken on my camera or those taken by Shelby and my parents) I have a tendancy just to point my camera and push the shutter button and see what comes out...a LOT of those pictures are garbage!

Stay tuned!

Katie-I am here, and I can't believe I'm already on page 3---WOW-you got a lot of attention fast!

I'm sorry the heat and crowds were not what you had planned for; not to mention those nasty blisters! But you seem like you have such a good attitude toward life, so I'm sure you worked through it all!

BTW---as someone who had to take a Flat Stanley to Disney one year, I think it is so funny that you have a Flat Beth! I can't wait to see what sort of adventures she gets into!

Can't wait to read more! I'm going to start my own TR soon, hopefully in a few days I hope some people will read it!

I figure life is much nicer if you focus on the good so I TRY not to let the negatives get me down!

I wish Flat Beth had come out more on attractions! I tended to think of her when I was sitting which means I have lots of pictures of her eating and drinking

I saw yesterday it has cooled down into the 80's again so maybe you will luck out with the heat! Try to say hi occasionally OK!

I'll be on the lookout for your TR! I found them after my 2008 trip and the best people on the Dis definitely hang out around the TR boards!! Congrats on your wedding
