I finally got caught up! I commented early on in your report...then lurked when I had time. Yesterday I was able to get completely caught up. It was kind of nice to go through the ups and downs in one sitting. And frankly, I think every family has those moments on vacation...at least mine does (I've been wanting to do that. You give us a at the perfect times!) Sometimes it takes a little more effort to find the magic. I, too, had moments of insanity thinking I could handle a 4 month old (then again at 10 months ) in the Florida heat. In the end, the good times are what I try to remember and what keep us going back!

Can't wait to hear more!

I was wondering if that was a new part of Soarin" (catching the golf ball) then realized it would be WAY too dangerous But that was cute!

No, there's not an actual ball to catch.

That's a great morning at Epcot - minus the FP issue.

It must have been great for Declan to try all those rides for the first time!

It was such a great trip for us with everyone now being able to do the rides. So many "firsts" for Declan this trip, which made it really special!

You are right Nichole - it is so much better when everyone can ride. You must now be there as well with Thomas. BTW - do you guys have any trips coming up?

I love the Four Parks One World CD. It's a great dose of Disney in the car or while I'm busy doing things at home. LOVE it!
It is so nice to bring a little bit of the Parks into our daily lives, isn't it?

You really did get a lot done that morning! Chris does look like a Test Track fan.

Loving the pictures of the topiaries. I last went to F&G in 2006 and thought Epcot was so gorgeous. Can't wait to see it again!!

Looking forward to hearing about the DIS meet!!
You are right Christine....Mom might have had a little something to do with that golfball!

Who would have thought such joy and pleasure could be expressed by my husband for a DIsney ride?!

I know you will love getting back to Epcot for F&G. Even though I saw it in 2009, in just one year I forgot how beautiful it really is!

You know...you are right. He does look a little scared. But ironically, he wasn't scared at all in line for the ride - Katie was!!! We had to practically pull teeth to get her to ride...and keep reminding her how much she liked it. Of course, as soon as we climbed out of the vehicle, both kids were begging to go again.

Sorry to mislead....I probably should have made it clear that Momma had something to do with that golfball ending up in my son's hand.

Well, thanks for checking back in! Hopefully the links helped get you back up-to-date quickly. Unfortunately I haven't been able to go as quickly as I would like in updating. I am looking forward to finishing up so I can catch up on all of the other TRs I have been reading!

Yes, you are right. We all have the ups and downs in life...even on vacation...and even at the most magical place on earth. I guess that is what makes us appreciate the good times even more.

It would be great if they got those machines straightened out. However, in the whole scheme of things, I was very thankful with how the day had gone so far. The FP was almost a non-event really. The only blemish on an otherwise perfect morning!

Let me be perfectly clear: there are no golfballs thrown at anyone in Soarin'. My son just happened to have one "fall" into his hand by a stealthy mom.

Good Morning Trish!

So happy to read your Birthday morning was fun and you enjoyed your meal at Cape May. Looks like a fun place to eat.

A couple of years ago during YOAMD we rode Soarin' with a Dream Team Member. She told us to concentrate really hard and see if we could 'catch' the golf ball. Well, I caught it!!! It even had the Mickey head on it. My kids were in awe. The Dream Team CM told them "your mom is a ninja!". I said you know at night when you guys think I am sleeping, well I am actually practicing my secret mama ninja skills. (that is why I am so tired most of the time)
My DD still questions the golf ball incident... Fun memories!

I absolutely LOVE the Test Track pic...your DH looks like he is having BIG fun . The look on his face really cracked me up . So glad you have a picture of him having a good time.

Hope you are having a great week!
TTFN
Darlene

BTW...I think you are a ninja mom too!
