Continued from previous post


Standing in the far corner near the table and chairs


Standing in the other corner, near the couch

Then I looked out to see what kind of view we would have.



BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!

I literally got tears in my eyes! It had been such a smooth travel day - a million things could have gone wrong, but everything went very, very right. And here we were, in Disney World.


Looking right




Looking all the way left


View from the couch


Mickey heads on the chest of drawers

After a short while I suggested to Henry that we go exploring.

He had ZERO interest. He just wanted to jump on that bed!

So I let him.

We laughed and tumbled around together for a bit longer until I finally did convince him that we should go explore, I knew once we got out of the room, he would love it.

But, where should we go? What should we do? Joe's new flight didn't land until later that evening, so we had a few hours...

I can see why BWV is one of your favorite places! LOVED that resort. I took lots of pics, so hopefully they "take you home".

It's been busy around here!! Glad you found us though! It was a very nice birthday, low key, but fun!!

I am trying to catch up and I just missed the link yesterday. 5 pages WOW.
I am here, coughing, wheezing and sneezing but here.

I have heard the guards at BW call the clown Krusty.
Yes! It should have been "that's nice!" I gotta remember to start using that too...

Ugh - it is not fun being sick. At least you weren't last week though! I hope it goes away quickly.

Krusty makes a lot of sense...but it kinda skeeves me out!

Glad you found me!! Isn't the pool there great? It really is a very, very nice resort. Some of those hallways can be loooooooong, so if you go end up choosing it, requesting something near the elevator is a good idea. We walked them a bit and couldn't believe how far it was! I think they are longer than Jambo/Kidani.

BTW, you take wonderful pictures of Henry! It doesn't hurt that he is so adorable
It will be nice to have a technology free vacation! I probably won't get toooooo far, but hopefully there will at least be a couple updates for you.

Thank you for the kind compliments about Henry and my pictures! I Usually take a TON of him, several of even the same shot to try and get that exact one I want. Gotta love a digital camera!

HAVE A WONDERFUL TRIP!!!!

Wow...you have 5 pages already! Congrats for that! Thats great for a 24 hour period!

Your pictures from the zoo & Henry's birthday are too cute! It looks like you both had a wonderful day!

I can't wait to read all about your trip!!!
It has been busy around here!! Hopefully I can keep up with the pace.

We really did have a great day at the zoo! It was simple, but very fun. The Central Park Zoo is great for little ones too - just the right size!

Again! Look how fast you are!

Henry had a BALL on that bed. As soon as he saw it, he commented on Mickey and then wanted to JUMP. I didn't even remind him that he was allowed, he remembered!

Looking forward to more.

First let me say that you make traveling alone with a 3 year old sound easy. You are one brave woman.

The room looks wonderful. Love the mickey heads on the dresser. It's the small touches, that Disney does so well.

My DS loves hotel/resort rooms. He loves the drawers though for some reason. So I understand Henry not wanting to leave. I still remember when my DS was 2 and a half and we were at Disney we had gone to AK for our first full day and had gotten back to the room around 5, ate and then asked my DS if he wanted to go to MK, he said no. We asked do you want to do anything or just stay in the room and be bored. And he said "stay in room, be bored". So we did. Little boys are just funny sometimes. Good thing they are just so dag gum cute.

What an awesome travel day! You definitely had some Disney mojo going on right from the start! So glad Joe was able to switch his flight and avoid Earl, you were able to try and fall in love with Chick-Fil-A, and you have a beautiful room at the Boardwalk. Seriously beautiful! Now I want to stay there even more! Henry jumping on the bed is just adorable! Isn't it cute what kids decide they like to do? Oh, and how sweet of the CMs to tell Henry Happy Birthday! Wish we had the two of you dancing onto ME on video! The only two snags to your day so far have been the seat mix-up and having to change a diaper, and those are so minimal, I don't think they count! Can't wait to see what the two of you decided to do around the resort!

Woo hoo for everything going so smoothly! Perfect for you traveling alone with Henry! I had wondered how you were getting to the airport but forgot to ask! I'm glad someone gave up their seat for you!

Your lunch sounds yummy! We'll have to try it one of these days!

Oh no, IT! Poor you! Good thing he decided to do IT before the bus left not after!

I love, love, love the pictures of BW! It looks so pretty! I can't wait until March! Henry looks like he's having such a good time jumping on the bed!

Great beginning to your trip. Your room was beautiful. I will have to add Boardwalk Villas to my list of must-stays.

What a great morning so far! Henry seemed like he was a great traveling companion for you!!

Love Chic-fil-A, we had them in Philly and they are delish, they don't have them here in MA, anymore, so we always eat them when we're out visiting Todds family. YUM!!!

So glad that you got Joe's ticket switched over and WOOHOO for no fee!

What a beautiful view at the resort, just gorgeous and the weather looked fabulous, too!!!

Can't wait to here more!!!!

Henry looks so cute and excited/sleepy!

That sandwich from Chick-Fil-A looks soo good!

That's adorable that you and Henry danced to the bus

Good shot of the welcome gate!

Henry takes part in one of my favorite "we are at disney moments" jumping on the bed yes at almost 20 I still get a kick out of jumping on the bed although I don't like nearly as cute as Henry when he does it

Ugh looking at your pics makes me miss Boardwalk

Great update!
