Cool, that should put you near the main terminal regardless of gate.
Cynthia, there are some great beach homes at Lincoln City and Gold Beach on VRBO.com. We have Arbonne retreats there and it is really nice and cozy and right on or across the street from the ocean. Lots of different sizes to choose from.

You were BUSY before that flight! And thank you for reminding me I may need to squeeze in pre-vacation hair/brow visit.

Can't believe your kids wanted caffeine on the red eye!!

Hope the trip was smooth and can't wait for your WDW arrival.

That's basically the plan for a family trip, probably Lincoln City as it's where I used to go as a child and I've been dying to go back! Plus it will work out well since Evan will have a TKD competition in Portland in either July or August, we will just head to the coast after that. Do you have any idea how early things book up? I've had good luck with VRBO in the past for Whistler.

It's the Jeff and I trip I don't have a clue on...

They don't get it. Or they frankly didn't care if they arrived tired and crabby, not sure. We told them a billion times we would not have a room right away but I don't think they heard a word. Heck, they think we just walk into places for dinner and it magically has room every time.
Taylor's common sense factor is not operating on high lately lets put it that way.

I swear the E's even realized at dinner not to drink caffeine. Yes, pre-vacation personal maintenance is always a must...but a huge chore and time suck at the same time!

Arrival may be next....I have to decide if the actual flight is an update by itself!

Have you considered Atlantis on Paradise Island? My brother and SIL love it there.

Traditionally we are not big resorty type people, a bit more off the beaten path small boutique inn type places so I'm not sure it would be very us but it does look cool!

Glad you got the hair and brows done!!

Nice that you got to relax at dinner before the flight.

Love the picture of Taylor with the skateboard. He so reminds me of my son (who loves to skateboard and snowboard as well). Does he buy all of his clothes at Zumiez? That's pretty much the only place my son will shop.

You didn't post pictures of 2 of your family members - the cats!!!

He used to get everything at Zumiez and PacSun but these days he's all about Urban Outfitters and to a lesser degree H&M

True, I left out the cats! I'll need to post some pics of the boys.

Yeah, and update! I have to say, you exhausted me on your departure day! I bet you were running through your day on pure adrenaline! Glad you got everything in and I can definitely appreciate the haircut and brow wax before you go on vacation! Can't wait to read more!

usually I am (running on pure adrenaline) but having actually had a very restful low key the night before I didn't really feel like I was running around that much, it was nice!
