Another great update! The girl's outfits are too cute and perfect for an Animal Kingdom day. I can't wait to hear how your grand gathering went

I was kind of bummed that they wrecked their shirts. Had a top secret plan for Mary's girls and mine to match.
Thanks We will absolutely do that!!!

That's too bad about the shirts... I would have loved to see your top secret plan

Before I post, I really need to read your report to the end....I missed your latest postmust be old age creeping in

I love KS, I think it's because no matter how many times you ride, it's never the same twice I love the picture of the girls with Flik, it's priceless! Great parade pics too, and so nice that you were able to enjoy it with Mary and her family!

Sounds like a great day at AK! The girls outfits are precious - I had the same issue with some cute "autumn colors" minnie mouse customs that my girls wore on our October 2008 trip and spilled chocolate ice cream all over! Oh well....I should have seen it coming, right?

Love the "antennae" picture with Flik! Very cute!

Looking forward to hearing all about the GG!!

Fun day at AK. It's funny that we never ran into y'all or Dana that day. We did see Mary between Asia and Africa.

I remember when my girls were younger and they got chosen to be in the show at FOTLK. Fun times!

I love the picture with Flik! I called them "dog ears" as a girl, but now I call 'em "pig tails" don't know when or why I switched!

Sounds like your Animal Kingdom day was great! Yay! for Kali River Rapids and adult beverages. Max has to stop by that bar for his once-a-year-because-that's-the-only-place-we-can-find-it Tusker Ale. I tried it this year, since I was never really a beer girl in the past, but I'm branching out now...and it really is good!

It's been a couple of years since we've seen Flik but I love him. The pictures of the girls and their antennae are so cute. I really like it when a character goes out of the way to interact with the park goers.

I was glad to read that Josie was tall enough to ride Kali River Rapids and that she liked it. We skipped it this year because we simply didn't feel like walking around the park soaking wet.

Festival of the Lion King is one of our very favorite shows. I don't think I'll ever tire of it. Too bad you weren't able to get a few pictures of the girls participating.

The pictures of your girls and Mary's sitting together were so sweet. It's amazing how kids can form a friendship so quickly.
Thanks Lisa! Josie really loved KRR. It was her official big kid ride so we were all very excited for her.

I don't think I will ever tire of FOTLK. It is such a fun show. It's funny that I recognize CM's from the last time I saw the show. They must really enjoy what they do.

cute outfits!!! I always loved working at WDW and seeing all the great home creation outfits I can't wait to see what your thoughts of Grand Gatherings was. A former roomie of mine worked Grand Gatherings once a month at AK for her internship! She always seemed to enjoy working them!

Man, seeing all the pics makes me miss it and you guys more.
No problem on the seats. The girls usually do pretty good with their clothes so I really thought we'd be okay. Of course they proved me wrong. The trails were fun and very quiet. We really needed that about that time in the day.

Wow, those pictures are expensive! I am really looking forward to our breakfast at TH! The food looks so good.

What a great day at Ak! I am really looking forward to having some of the same experiences you have but perhaps not KRR.

Looking forward to reading about the GG.
Hi Stephanie! The pics are super expensive and honestly, they weren't very good at all. I would definitely stay away from KRR if you don't want your drawers stickin' to ya FOREVER!

GG details are coming up!
