I can't imagine being in it alone

Love the photos and I am too tired to compete with the previous clever comments.

I put my youngest in a dress yesterday that we bought at the Polynesian on our first trip with my oldest. It's a cute little Hawaiian dress with Mickey and Minnie on it and it has signs all over it that say Disney's Polynesian Resort.

Awww, how I miss the days of cute resort specifics.


And yes, I am the princess of hand-me-downs. I saved all of my oldest's nice clothes in the hopes that someday we would have another child and the hopes that said child would be a girl. It took 7 years, but we did it!

If I'm not mistaken, I said that exact sentence, word for word, to my wife at that point in the trip. I might have repeated it later, too.

Man. I almost got through the entire TR without anyone noticing that. I can't put anything past you guys.

I need to find some of these home-made Dole Whip recipes online and give them a try. Anyone have a particular favorite?

True confession time. I asked FreezinRafiki specifically how to make the © and ® symbols just so I could use them in my TR. And I already mentioned the Photoshopping work he did for me. Before he starts claiming to have co-written this TR, I'd better award a bonus point for all this help!

Julie says the bikini cow ornament stays. I believe the direct quote was, "You don't mess with the cow."

I was trying to bait her into registering and commenting on the TR here. Maybe I'll have to try harder, since I thought that comment would do it.

Oh boy. You guys are going to new lengths in the never-ending quest for points here. I'm not sure how to score this one. I'm always impressed by people who know their Scriptures, but it's also not a movie quote and seems outside the rules of the game. Then again, there are no rules, per se.

Perhaps I'm overthinking this just a tad. How about a bonus point with an asterisk!

My wife is wonderful (Hi honey! in case you're reading this), so as her long-lost twin you must be fairly wonderful yourself. Just don't give me any crap about not taking out the trash. I'll take care of it when I get home.

for the kind words about the pictures!

We've tried for years to get good night-time shots! And like I said, Julie has a very good eye. I'm proud of her.

In fact, I think when she saw the ornament, she said, "Ooooooooo...."

She must be my long-lost twin......

We have to be triplets.

The claw is our master. the claw decides who will stay and who will go

You saved our lives, we are eternally greatful

Great pics!


My wife apparently has lots of clones running around. Sort of like the green alien guys. Begun the Clone War has.

Your photos rock. Mine stink compared to yours, and after a while, I just plain gave up on night shots.

Resort specific merch. Those days are gone, my friend. Sad.
That's a great summary of parenting. Whatever it takes! I'm always proud when someone compliments our kids. They're sweet, wonderful children who consistently have their meltdowns in private.

I did see some resort-specific merchandise, but only in the deluxe resorts. Nothing doing for us moderate people.

You must be referring to the other readers. They're much more clever than I am!

I still love my Wilderness Lodge t-shirt. And nice job with the hand-me-downs and genetic engineering!

I dunno what it actually stands for, if anything, but I did pick it up somewhere here on the Boards.

I have the same camera (Xsi/450D). Are you using the remote shutter release? It helps a lot with long exposures. Here are a couple shots using a tripod and the remote shutter release:



This one was taken in near pitch black with a 45 second exposure. (The logo shows it was taken when I was still deciding on a name and building a portfolio)




Expect many, MANY more when I do my TR after our trip in Nov.

Co-written? Give me a few days to get back into the swing of things and I'll be claiming that I was on the trip.

Drat. Well, at least I have a Key Lime Pie of Awesomeness with my name on it. So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

I don't recall the exact quote that I put in my TR to get my wife to join and start commenting. I'm pretty sure it was one of the times I was wrong about something. It's getting hard to tell them all apart, however - they just seem to blend all into each other.

Great shots Ian! We did not use the remote shutter release--just did it manually with the tripod holding it steady. I think for these shots we actually used the automatic settings for exposure, f-stop, etc. We're still learning how to play with the thing.

I will look forward to seeing your shots in November!

Now I know for a fact that you weren't there. If you were, we'd have given you Scotty to keep occupied while we went on all of the rides!

I can't believe you were ever wrong in your TR. After all, it is your TR. Well, in any case, you can console yourself with some Key Lime Pie of Awesomeness ®. Oh, and are you trying to get points or give them out?

Oh, You know that now. I'm talking about a few days from now, after I have masterfully infiltrated your mind, modified your memories, and photoshopped your pictures.

It's not just my TR. I've been told that I'm wrong all the time - TRs, regular Disboards posts, Facebook, real life...

Not at all. You just suck at this as much as I suck at your "guess the letter" game.

Anyway, I see 2 unclaimed movie quotes in the various replies. I didn't bring all of them up, either.

Since you said there were still some unclaimed quotes out there and that you didn't bring all of them up - I am going to latch on to this one.

It seems like it is a Bill Murray-ism from Caddyshack
