Here are some of the frames......I was really disappointed with my camera this trip......it usually does well in low lighting & with movement.....but I noticed it had a "rattle" to it & think maybe the batteries are a bit loose. All I know is, only about half of the pictures came out good enough to post here.


















Capri ended up with my frame!!



The frame I got was from Jill......it was a beautiful shadow box with a couple pins, a used parkhopper, a FP, etc. I would have sworn I took a picture of it, but can't find it.......really disappointed I didn't....because it was awesome!!! On the flight home.....most of the stuff came loose, so I can't take one now......heavy sigh!!! Jill did say, I saw supposed to add a few of my own things to it.....so I will have to give the poor thing a make-over now......darned ol' luggage throwers!! (at least the glass didn't break).

We called everyone over for a group picture with our frames:



After taking the picture.....we realized we still had a few ladies missing.....so here's the complete group with their frames!!



People started to head out shortly after the exchange. The committee & a few others stuck around to help with the clean up. All in all, I would have to say the Meet-n-Greet party was a success!!! Seemed like everyone was having a good time & it was a great way to kick off the weekend!!

I love all the pics you take unposed and the whole M&G seems like the perfect kick off and way for everyone to get to know people and make plans!

Awesome trip report Laurie! And BEAUTIFUL photos!

Just so you know, I still feel weird when I'm walking around the parks by myself. I just don't like to be alone at the parks I guess. Also, like you, the first ladies trip was the hardest for me to be away from my family....I felt so guilty. Now I have no problem leaving my boy folk at home. I'm like, "See ya in a few days boys! Momma gonna go play!

Oh, and the winning song for the Meet-n-Greet party game was "Tomorrow" (from Annie).

Oh, and I was the lucky one to get the frame Laurie made and brought for the exchange. It is SO cute!!! I love it!

And one more little thing to say....do NOT order the kids meals at Rancho. They are the worst! Stick with the adult meals. They are MUCH better.

Got up early & made the phone call to my bank & spoke with the Asst General Mgr about the hotel bill this morning....but already covered that....so moving on........

Forgot to mention that Chris stayed with us after the Meet-n-Greet & was on her way this morning to move into a different hotel/villa or something like that.

Michelle & I headed over to Disneyland making our way to Space Mtn to pick up FP's. We walked towards Fantasyland & saw no line for Alice, so we hopped on for a ride. I haven't been on it since they had to put in the platform & railing to the outside track......kinda takes away from the effect.....but oh well....you do what you gotta do.







After exiting Alice, we jumped onto the Teacups, where Lisa & Trish also joined in.









We all headed towards the Princess Fantasy Faire to do our group photo with us in our tiaras. We got in line early, so we could get in & out pretty quickly before the crowds showed up. Janelle texted & told me she was on the run to get there......she made it in plenty of time & was great for her to meet the other ladies in person!!







I borrowed this from one of the other Divas who took this picture......My camera was already put away when I decided to get a solo pic with the princesses.....so glad someone still had their camera at the ready!!

Thanx Capri!!

I had no idea it would hit me that hard.....I was so looking forward to the break & to react so majorly....kinda bummed me out I missed out on ride time with the girls, going to the Villa to check it out & just chit chat, etc.

Tomorrow......oh that's right!!!!

I swore a took a picture of the frame but wanted to wait until after the trip to post it.....can't seem to find it......could you get a picture of the frame please?? Feel free to add it to this report!!!

I figured the kid meal was made with the same stuff.....just not as much of it.....lol I just didn't want to pay that much for an adult meal that I knew I would only take a few bites of. Next time, I'll pick something up & bring it over to join you all there......
