No, my ADR was under "Jacqueline" which is my actual first name -- Jackie is just my nickname that everyone calls me.

what is your b-day button etiquete? do you/child wear the entire stay or just on the b-days....

The plate of bread and olives is free, and I am not sure the actual etiquette, but Chelsea wore her button all week. I think most people do.

Love the picture of you and Charles with your drinks.

Oh My! That picture of Chelsea with her birthday desert is fabulous. She's is just glowing!
Connor is at that age where everything is right or wrong -- there is no gray area in his life.


Chelsea was in heaven!!!

I go back to work tomorrow, so in an effort to cheer us all up, I thought I would share a couple of pictures my aunt, who lives in Hawaii, sent my mom.

She said in her email, "We have a new ship docked windward and the whole island is excited. It's the Queen Ann's Revenge, here to start filming the Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides. They started casting calls months ago, scooping up the guys from my poetry class, who all look like pirates (or cast-aways), but not so much the girls. Of course, getting near her is a problem--so...we took pictures from the jungle."

I was beside myself with excitement when I saw these pictures! So cool!

We are headed out to do school supply shopping today -- I may have to get a coffee drink to get through this. Chelsea heard that Target has locker disco balls, so she is all about getting one of those. She could really care less about the actual supplies that she needs.

It may also be Chinamans Hat on Oahu. I am not sure from the picture. Looks great though. I wish I was there.

Very cool pics!

One day I want to visit Hawaii! Look at that water! Gorgeous!

Good Luck school shopping, I did that last Friday.

A locker Disco ball sounds very fun! Hope you find it!

Lexi still enjoys back to school shopping but my son just said "eh, thanks"
He could care less about picking out new school stuff.
As long as he has binders and pens/pencils on the first day he is happy.
Happy is not the right word ...... he never goes back to school happy!

good luck school supply shopping. no locker is complete without a disco ball....duh. last year i made the mistake of going to target in athens right around the time UGA was going back to school. that place was a madhouse filled with freshmen girls and their mothers loading up their carts with dorm room supplies and they were all SO RUDE. i thought i was gonna get in a fight just getting in and out of there!

Awesome pics! How lucky of your aunt to be able to see that! I can't wait for pirates 4! I loved all of the movies and of course Captain Jack It's so weird for me this year since i'm a college freshman not to have to go school shopping. I still have to go get a backpack and some pens and pencils but that's about it! It sort of makes me sad because I'm not living in a dorm so I don't get the fun of shopping for my dorm Oh well, there's always next year! Hopefully by then i'll be living in my own apartment, let's hope!

That is so cool! I can't wait to see Captain Jack again. Sigh.

So lucky to have an Aunt in Hawaii. I'm sure she must be very popular amoung her family for visiting.

Very cool picture! Your Aunt will have to keep us updated on the movie progress!

I got the last of Hannah's school supplies on Saturday. 22 more days until she and Alison go back to school. I had some time to kill this morning so went to Target. I found some very cute vintage Mickey Mouse notebooks. They had 3 designs and, since I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked the best I bought all 3! I'll probably use one to take notes on our trip and debating on whether to give one to the girls for the trip or save them for stocking stuffers. I have such a hard time figuring out what to put in their stockings that when I find something I hate to give it up! LOL

Great pictures from Hawaii. We have a good friend who is a stunt double for a couple of the main characters of the Pirates series. We ran into his parents when we were home this summer on vacation. They told us that there would be a #5 as well because our friend had already been signed.

I have only seen one Pirates movies - the first one. I'm not so into them, and Johnny Depp is not my type, but the pictures are cool, and that is a beautiful place.

Good luck with the school shopping. I think I am going to run up to Target in a little while and price the plastic animals they have for my Rafiki's Planet Watch area of my room. Target has, in the past anyway, had some very realistic looking animals, so I hope they still have them.

It has been a good summer, but it is clearer every day that it is about to end.

Oh, lordy, don't let Maggie find out about this...she'd be all over that! My kids go back August 30, and they are already chomping at the bit to start shopping.

Hey Jackie just wanted to let you know that I googled Queen Anne's Revenge and she was Blackbeard's ship. It is believed that she is off the coast of North Carolina. So cool that your aunt saw the ship.
