Signing on. Your little Henry is the cutest thing ever. I think my favorite picture is him looking at himself while jumping on the bed. Looking forward to more.

Could things get any better so far?! The rooms look great and Henry looks very excited to be visiting he pals again.
Ahh, yes I remember "cousin IT" I was very glad when he moved away.

What a great view.
You sure made travelling with a 3 year in NYC look easy.

Yup - something got me about Thursday and at least it waited until I got back to get bad. Just allergies. They were spreading mulch at FQ so maybe that was it. Who knows, with my allergies it could be anything

wow...9 pages...i am really behind! We used the little spot between the kitchenette and the doorway for Caleb's crib! It worked awesome and was like his own little room! But we were at the Beach Club but I am sure it is set up the same!

Love the video of Henry jumping on the bed, so cute! We fell in love with the Boardwalk when we stayed there last spring break. It's such a pretty resort! Even with that clown!
Glad the trip down went smoothly, can't wait to read more!

What a great start to the trip! You got every good trip vibe there is. Well, of course, except for IT. I was afraid IT was going to be a flashback to your trip from two years ago. So glad for all around that it was not!

We were at Chick-Fil-A tonight. I totally thought of you while eating. We're there most Tuesdays. Kids eat free and they provide crafts for them to do too. We are pretty much junkies!

So glad you had a great travel day! I always stress out the most about that day...just something about all the things that might possibly go wrong that stresses me out! I try so hard not to let it (I did a little better this past trip...lol)

That's great that Joe was able to change his flight without any additional fees!

I know what you mean about Chick-Fil-A...isn't it great? We have one about 30 minutes from our house! Actually, we have one that's 25 minutes South of us and one that's 30 minutes West of us! I don't eat there near as often as I'd like! lol I always get the original chicken sandwich like you got & just add a little ketchup to the top (I'm weird about it...the ketchup has to be on the opposite side of the chicken as the pickle!) And I love those waffle fries!!! Yum!!!

Loved the pictures of the Boardwalk!!! I remember driving by it on the boat on the way to the BC/YC and thinking how pretty it must be inside! And it truly is!!!

The picture of Henry on the bed is absolutely adorable!!! Its great to see that he was enjoying himself as soon as you arrived...Luke does the same thing (jumping on the bed first & then exploring the room!)

I loved the views from your room! Absolutely gorgeous!!!

Can't wait to hear more!!!

Henry is soooo cutie pie. Of course i may be partial, being a redhead myself!

Looking forward to more.

What a sec...16 sleeps? Didn't you just get back??? I'm jealous!!!!! (or am I confusing you with another DISer in my "I attempted to potty train my 3 year old today" exhaustion?)

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.
I was nervous about the traveling. I tried to make it as easy as possible with as few things as possible. It was WAY smoother than I ever imagined! A million things could have gone wrong, but nothing did.

That is so cute about your DS! Henry loved our room too and wanted to stay in it a few times, in the evening, so we did! He also got very into the pool.

They have 2 other clown-free pools! He can be avoided.

I was hoping to get more up today, but it just didn't happen...maybe tomorrow.

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!
It really as a VERY smooth travel day. So many things could have gone wrong, I could have been exhausted and pulling my hair out, but that Disney magic kicked into high gear instantly!

Seriously chick fil a is the best. Though Im complicated I usually add cheese to the original and switch out for the wheat bun it is soo good. I didnt know chicken could be so heavenly seasoned!

Great start the boardwalk seems real nice!!!
Seriously though Henry is so stinkin' cute makes me want kids of my own ! lol
