Thanks Becky, we had a great time at the pool! So much fun to just have a down day!!

We are looking forward to the Party! I've only ever been in the spring, so I have nothing to compare it to! It's my husband's first trip and we have a 2 year old little girl... I cannot wait to experience WDW through their eyes! Makes me tear up just thinking about seeing my little girl's face when she first sees the Castle!

I can see Shelley and I having MANY more Disney trips in our future!
I'll have to go and check our your siggie, thanks for letting me know!!

You are going to have such a magical trip! There is nothing like experiencing it through your childs eyes.....it will totally make you cry!!!

Love the HDDR review update. I just can't decide if we should do it this trip. I'm thinking maybe I'll wait until the next trip. So much to do, so little time!
It looks like everyone enjoyed it.

No Strawberry Shortcake picture? That would be my favorite part.

Thanks again Kristen and I sure will!!! My flight is at 5:40 so I am having a glass of wine or two to "relax!!"

Oh I love Jet Blue...the tv and the leg room....even though I am only 5'2
That is the one bad thing about arriving at night....loss of direction at the resort...ugh

Your dinner looked delicious and I love how you canceled out by having a salad earlier in the day....I thought Disney food didn't have any calories Well that is what I believe

I will catch you when I get back....I will likely post on FB while I am gone

I laughed out loud about Todd and the A/C. My DH freezes me out during the Summer with the A/C in the bedroom, but then complains when I won't turn on the heat in the winter when it is the exact same temp.

The HDDR looks like alot of fun and the fried chicken looks yummy. It makes me think of my grandma and her fried chicken...she grew up in the South and I miss her cooking.

great update! Must say that the pic of you on the bus (w/sleeping Cole) is such a great pic of you....you look beautiful (as you are of course). I also love Cole's hair cut and the pic of him waking up at the HDR...he looks so old there though . The look on Ethan's face in the one from the HDR is priceless

the end of day 1

We left off heading out of HDDR, we headed right for the boat to get back to POR, here is a pic of the group on the way "home"



We got back to POR about 8 or so and decided to get the kiddos right to bed, Tracey and fam had been up since about 4 a.m. and we were up so late the night before. We got the kids into their jammies, got ready for bed ourselves and once the kids were settled, we adults brought our chairs out onto the "deck" out front. It worked out so nicely- since we had adjoining rooms, we had a whole area to ourselves, it almost felt like our own private balcony.

It was so nice to finally have some quiet time, have a bottle of water, crack open our Passporters and make our plan of attack for our 1st day at Magic Kingdom!

We didn't stay out there too long, probably until 10:30 or so, we had breakfast ressies at CM at 8:35 a.m. the next morning, it was time to get some zzzzzz's!

up next 9/23

It was such a fun show! Go next time, that gives you another reason to go back!!

I know, I can't believe I have no pics of the strawberry shortcake!!!!! We must have ate it too fast!

9/23 our 1st day at MK and our 10 year anniversary!

The alarm went off about 6:15 this morning, I was already awake, anxiously awaiting it. It was our 1st REAL DAY in my book, we were going to breakfast to meet all the characters and going to MK! And today was an extra special day, it was Todd & my 10 year wedding anniversary! For those new to my report, Todd and I honeymooned 10 years ago this exact week at Dixie Landings (now POR), hence the name of my TR, "Not exactly the way it all began" now we were there with our 3 small boys and our friends!

I jumped out of bed and quickly got the boys outfits ready and took a fast shower before they were up. In no time, we were all ready, we had planned to open the door between our rooms at 7:15 and head out to the bus station. When we did, Tracey and Adam gave us a little gift!



It was so cute and thoughtful of them! We wore them to bed that night, there was no way I could get Todd to wear them to the park. Plus, we were dressed and ready to go at this point.

I took a quick pic of the boys before we headed out for the day....



We headed to the bus and the MK bus came in no time! We had a smooth ride over to MK and decided to take the path and walk over to the Contemporary. It was only about 8 and it was already SO HUMID, my poor hair....there was no help for it!! We headed right up to CM and we were given our buzzer and told to get in line for our picture (oops! Before I go any further, I just realized I didn't have the CM pic downloaded to photobucket, will do that and write more later...sorry!)

I love the shirts! It is too bad you only wore them to bed though.

The boys look ready to go.

Those shirts are so cute! Too bad you couldn't get Todd to wear them to the park, but I understand - Don would never do it either

Ummmmm, how long does it take to upload one picture..........

Just kidding, I'll be patiently waiting for you to continue

CM continued......

Back to CM (sorry for the delay guys...lol!)...

We waited in line to get our CM pic, I took a few pics while we waited our turn.







Then it was our turn! The kids weren't overly cooperative but it turned out pretty cute (excuse the quality, it's a pic of a pic!) We tried to get the CM to keep families together, but no one listened....so note that Ethan is with Tracey and fam and we have a daughter now! LOL!!



Soon after a CM lead us to a table.....and pretty sure it was the FURTHEST table from everything possible! I gues with 6 kids under the age of 8, she was smart! But still! We zigged and we zagged and finally made our way to our table....

Woo-hoo! Updates! I LOVE the shirts for your anniversary! So cute!

Can't wait to read more. Nikki and I did MK in the morning on Thursday. I bet we crossed paths and didn't even know it!! I think I texted you that day, but we were on other sides of the park! Oh well.
