Welcome!!! Well our year has started off with 2 large bangs. First off DH almost drove off a cliff with our 24 foot trailer while driving some friends of ours to pick up a vehicle they wanted to buy in the interior of the province. The truck is a write off, the trailer is repairable, and he is still recovering from the injuries he sustained in the crash. Yesterday I almost got T boned driving the kids home from school. Thanks to some evasive driving tactics I was able to minimize the damage to both vehicle and the people in it. But am still feeling the effects of the crash. DS8 was uninjured, DS9 has injuries as he saw the crash coming and braced for it (the worst thing you can do). His are minor, but he's in alot of pain from them. I've got some minor sprains and strains from it, and am grateful the crash was not worse than it could have been. We figure that my vehicle is going to be written off due to age, and the fact it was a limited production run. So we are now scrambling to find vehicles to use as daily drivers until we can work it out with our insurance agencies. We are running out of vehicles to drive. To have both of us to have major crashes within a week is extremely rare, so we are both joking about it at the moment. Time to get a lottery ticket, as our luck couldn't get any worse.

I hope to my Commando family proud as I have no idea how this is going to go, but I am excited. My dream is coming true and I am super thankful and super excited!!! Stop by if you can. I am still learning about posting pics and all that so that may take a minute, but this is my first thread (well, other than the test thread I made, but that doesnt count )
Looks good so far, when you click on your link it only brings you to a single post that you can not respond to, I have no idea how to fix it though

That's crazy, I'm glad no one was seriously injured, hope you bought that lottery ticket

We've been to WDW 5x since 2007 and we did Sea World 2x. We'll do it again and prob do Universal when my youngest gets a bit older.

WDW just has soooo much to do and make it so easy to get around via their transportation options.
And, once we did DVC, then we don't want to pay for one of the resorts over by Universal. We've only 30 more years on one contract, so I guess there's a chance.

Hope you enjoy Legoland, it looks amazing, specially with kids! We were planning to go, but it isn't cheap and for a pack of 3 adults and a teen there wasn't a lot to do to justify trading a day at the other parks (or bridal gown hunting!) for it. I guess I'll have to wait until we have kids of our own and take them to Orlando!

Thanks! I'm sure we'll have a great time! I'm taking my iPad and iPhone so I'll try to log in at night to check how everything here is going and post updates (some time this week I have to create a TR thread! )
Can't wait to see what Limited Time Magic will have in store for us!

Well we bought the lottery ticket and didn't win anything, but hey it was worth a shot. We've got the 97 Town and Country on the road yesterday. DH has to do some work on the 2001 Jeep we've got over the next couple of weeks and it will be his daily driver until such time as he can find another 1 ton truck to replace his with. We're Canadian Rednecks, and DH's boss was joking he should be using the 52 Chevy Fire truck as his daily driver. I'd love to see try to find parking for that on a daily basis. If the 2000 gold T&C is written off, it's no great loss, as it was always meant to be a back up vehicle in case one of ours died. And I've got the Green T&C to drive. It just means that we're going to be sharing a vehicle for the next couple of weeks until we sort things out with the insurance agency. My accident could have been a great deal worse, and am grateful that it wasn't. I was reassured by the police that the other driver is 100% at fault and they were going to see to it that the other drivers insurance will pay for the repairs to my vehicle. This is the worst accident I've had in over 15+ years. Added bonus is that I did it in front of other drivers that I'm friends with at the school. Fun stuff all around. Let us all hope that my year get's better from here. So says the eternal optimist.

Oh my you have been through a lot a few short days. I am glad everyone is ok and I just have to say I agree with your DH's boss, take the ChevyYou all stay safe and hope you find a new vehicle soon. There is something to be said for that eternal optimism you have. . . it got me multiple trips to Disney this year

Hope everyone else is doing well

Well, I've looked at the dinner menu for Whispering Canyon Cafe and I'm kinda stoked about the skillet! LOL I'm going to have to be careful with having the dining plan on this trip though, so I don't gain 20 pounds! LOL But I've never had the dining plan before and I'm very excited about it! And with all the walking I'll be doing it should (hopefully) even out. LOL
