I love your photos. They bring back so many memories of our trip last year. I agree that the view at WL is amazing. Love the fireworks shots too. Mine were a disaster.

Oh Awesome photos Ms.Shuttergirl!

Somebody was clever to wear a poncho on Kali river rapids I was not so clever!!!

The necklace your DD had the pearl set in was absolutely divine! How clever to get that before you went. I had a look at the settings and there wasn't any thing as cute as that available!

I cracked up at how wet your family was after the water ride at Universal

Oh that photo of how the mousekeeper had set up the chipmunks was SO cute! Just gorgeous.

Fabulous photos! Fabulous trip report! Sorry it's over

Loving the photos Ms.Shuttergirl. Can you tell me how you do it, I can download to facebook but for the life of me can't do it here? I am a little computer dumb as you can see. Your family is beautiful, it is nice to but a face to your name. Its funny I imagined you to have red hair just because your profile pic is of ariel......

Wow!! Love the pics, but I'm not surprised. I was expecting them to be nothing less then spectacular and I'm not disappointed .

I'm so glad that your DD got to meet Mary Poppins!

Loved the Yankees pics, nice to see a different perspective seeming as the game we went to was during the day. Don't know if you've seen my pics, but I've got a pic of my family in the exact same spot outside Yankee Stadium!

WL looks amazing! And I love your view!!

Kyl, to post photos you need to set up an account with photobucket
( www.photobucket.com ) it's free. Then you upload your photos to that, which is very easy, you just click on the big green upload button. Once the photos have uploaded, when you run your curser over the photos it will bring up a list of codes, just highlight and copy the IMG code. Then you go to your disboards post and in the body of the message (where you want the photo to appear) paste the img code, the link wording will appear in your message, but when you click "submit reply" to post your reply the image will appear in your post, not the code. I was really nervous when I first did it, but it's quite easy and I am not a computer literate person trust me

One of the Webmasters made some videos on this....click on the video link in the first post and play the one for pictures/photos about 2 or 3 down from the top. It shows you how to go to your photo, find the IMG code and post into your thread.

Bummer about your fireworks shots. I just kept shooting non stop and hoped for the best .

I'm glad my photos brought back happy memories for you.

Well the poncho seemed like a good idea but I still got pretty wet .

The necklace setting was lovely wasn't it. I got one for myself too and it was sooooo inexpensive.

That water ride at Universal is crazy. Everyone came off soaked unlike Kali where only a select few of unlucky people do.

Aussietravllers has given great instructions.

I have had dyed red hair before if that helps haha.

Ooooh I must go back and look at your Yankees photos. It really was a great experience and my DH is so obsessed he is trying to convince my DS to give up cricket and play baseball hahaha. And there is a National Baseball League starting and Canberra has a team so DH is beside himself. Oh dear .

Mary Poppins and Bert were wonderful.

Thanks for the comments about the photos.

I loved your photos! My boys sat on my lap and looked through them with me and I taught my youngest a few new words to master in the next five years :D

Thanks for sharing them with us :D

Oh the photos are just lovely. It really does add to the TR! The children loved looking through them as well. I loved the shots in NY, as well as the chipmunks! Thank you for putting them up and sharing them. May I ask who you bought the Cinderella carriage necklaces from on ebay? They are just divine. It might be nice to surprise my DD with it for Christmas.

Here is a link to the US vendor Shushh:-

http://cgi.ebay.com/18K-WGP-PEARL-CA...24487182639040

The picture on ebay looks a little gold but I can assure you they look very silver and for $3.50 they obviously aren't going to last for long but by the time it wears out we will have it set in a more grown up setting.

What lenses did you take on your holiday?? I do not own a zoom and plan on buying one shortly, but as I have never used one, I don't know what length to get. Top of my list is the 24-105, but it is f4 and the ISO on my 450d only goes to 1600 (I do plan on getting the 7D at some stage before our trip).

Wouldn't mind knowing the answer to this too!

Loved your trip report, can't wait to see more photos - and what a great sense of humour Mousekeeping have, rearranging the chipmunks!
