Well. I'll just read along then.

I thought you were used to being left behind
How long does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?

As timing and luck would have it, DD's Carnation Instant Breakfast decides it doesn't like being held captive in the kid cup we used to transport it and subsequently leaks all over the inside of her carry-on backpack.

I frantically search for the "perfect" sunglasses I spent weeks searching for this trip. On my shirt? No. In the backpack? No. Does DW have them? No. Has ANYONE seen them? No. This sucks. I left them on the kitchen counter. Really, this totally blows because my eyes are light sensitive. And you have NO idea how picky I am about my sunglasses (just ask DW).
Wow. This sounds like one of the Vacation movies. Did somebody place a voodoo curse on you just before you left or something?

Not sure what that was about... but another 5 minutes go by and it looks like the plane has been finally loaded and is ready to go. Then another 5 minutes. And another. Then, wouldn't you know it, that same young man was being escorted back onto the plane. He didn't look as happy as before... and even appeared to be ashamed. I wasn't going to poke my nose into his business, but after he got buckled in, he leans over to me and tells me the story. Turns out that as he boarded the plane, he was trying to be funny and said the the captain something along the lines of "Hope you cleared the bombs off the plan." He learned his lesson the hard way. Apparently you get a thorough talking to for comments like that... who knew? I didn't really talk to him the rest of the flight. But I sure kept my eye on him!


What happens if the captain is a friend of yours named Jack, and you say hi to him?

I was beginning to wonder that question myself. Wait until the next installment!

Call me a nerd, but we have an actual printed checklist. It's used for every trip from an overnight getaway to 2 weeks in Disney World. There are columns for each member of the family, plus the dogs when they come with us, and 'misc' column that lists every camera, phone, charger, etc. (And yes, there is a "sunglasses" entry under each person. Except the dogs.) Every item gets checked off as it gets packed, then again as the bag gets loaded. Don't want a repeat of that time we forgot the toiletry bag in the bathroom and had to scramble to get DW's contacts prescription faxed to us so she could get another set while on vacation.

Could be worse, he could have been putting on a rubber glove that extended to his elbow.

I showed her how the arm rest comes up and she moved over and cuddled while we watched Tinker Bell chasing the sprinting thistles. Now THIS is what vacation is about
There you go - the vacation was worth it before it even began!

Finally a trip report that I'll be able to keep up with. Glad to get in early on this one. I'm still 10 pages behind on Mark's and feel like I've missed out on all the fun.

The sad part is... I HAD a checklist. But in the rush to get out the door I probably made one of those rookie mistakes of getting distracted... you know... grab sunglasses... have to put them down to pick up the suitcases... etc. It's hereditary I think

I know what you mean! Those guys are racking it up over there. Putting the DIS Dad's Club thread to shame

Turns out that you have to take the laptop OUT of the bag and place it in a separate bin. (Insert face-palm here) Oops. A well-seasoned traveler I am not. After a well-deserved lecture about the PROPER way to submit a laptop for security screening, the kind TSA worker gives me a clean report and sends me on my way.

Wow, breaking TSA security protocol, and associating with a known terrorist (or at least someone who jokes about bombs). Looks like Don is about one more small mishap away from the no-fly list!

Guess I'm a little late to the party.
Luckily, it's Don's TR, so I'm not really even behind yet. If I'm tracking it so far we have:

Pros:
"A" Group boarding
Unsolicited Pilot's wings
DisDad father-daughter moment on the plane
Almost-private ME transportation to the resort

Cons:
Stuffed bear having Carnation Instant Breakfast drink for breakfast
Forgot sunglasses at home
Minor TSA embarrassment moment

What's next Don, huh? Huh? What's next?

Is there an update yet?




Now?


How about now?

Late? That's a four letter word that doesn't register in this TR Very nice way to sum up the report so far. No update yet.



Or yet...

Hey, Dave! Welcome! Nate hasn't shown up yet. He might still be pouting since I started my TR before he finished his.
