Tammi,
Great pictures!!! I really like your room ate AK..very pretty!
Too bad we missed you on that rainy day. We were right over at BTM fast pass area hiding out with a bunch of other people & CM's. It did pour like crazy!!!!! Looking forward to more.

Bernadette,
I entered in my code for photopass but I have not gone through them yet so maybe I will do a share...Gotta go check them out. Glad your root canal is done.

Tammi, I'm loving the trip report. Chuck was looking at them with me. His only comment "The kids are getting big, aren't they?" They grow so fast.

Deb-sounds like you all got a lot done. I bet having the help of neighbors has really lifted the spirits of those you've helped.

Tammi/Anne Marie-funny how we were all pretty close to each other that day. Sorry we didn't get together. I don't understand how times moves so fast at Disney.

Anne Marie-I'll hold off claiming my photopass photos just yet.


Joe, Emma & I are watching Star Wars. We've never seen it. Don't know what rock I was under when it first came out.

Day 2 Epcot

Sunrise




We were up and at the park for rope drop. I've learned that people are creatures of habit and just do what everyone else is doing. Each time we've gotten to a park there are about 6 or 8 turnstiles, right in the middle that have lines of people at them. When people walk up, they just line up behind the few that are already there. The rest of the turnstiles are empty. So we were the first ones in line at the "other" turnstile, and when they opened we were ahead of the pack to the rope area.



Our first stop was the Charaction Connection, where I was strong armed by a dad so his family could be first in the door. Fine. We were first last time and already had that experience. It still annoyed me that he even did that.





Dancing with Donald




Next stop was Soarin for FPs


This must have been a boring day. I don't have many pictures. We rode all the attractions in Future World and then left for the pool.







After a swim and a rest we headed back to Epcot for our ADR at Rose & Crown. We saw this perfectionist on the way.



When we checked in I asked if we could wait for an outside table. The CM said she would see what she could do, and after about a half hour we were seated at the most perfect table for viewing Illuminations. I had Bangers & Mash, which was new for me. Really didn't care for it. The kids had fish and chips. We had a leisurely meal and dessert started just as Illluminations did. A perfect ending to the day.

And isn't it funny that you will often see the same people over and over again when you are there? You don't know them, but you keep running into them! Yet, when you have friends a few rides away you never see them.

Tammi - I am loving your pictures. You are a good photographer and it shows even better with your new camera!

Deb - Kudos to you and your community for pitching in and helping one another. Who would have thought that land-locked Vermont would be so devastated by a hurricane.

Good morning, DDA!

Today is supposed to be the last nice day for a week. The remnants of Lee, the storms in the mid-west and a little disturbance that passed by us yesterday are going to converge and sit over top of us for the next 5 days or so. What a dreary way to start the school year. And I feel so badly for those in our area who still have no power!

Tammi-sounds like another good day! I love the way you ended it with dessert and Illuminations!

Good morning everyone! Im working on cleaning the house today and organizing some things for work. Tonight, I have 11 people coming over for our big fantasy football draft. It should be fun!

We certainly never expected it. Now we are very concerned about the reminants of Lee. They are predicting 2-6" of rain, heavy at times and our already saturated ground won't be able to handle it. I'm sure they will evacuate many areas in preparation.

Tammi-loving your photos! Some people set nice examples for their kids. Some woman pushed her way into the TSM queue one morning-when the line extended way beyond where she was trying to step in. DH apologized to her but I somewhat loudly said "you don't have to apologized to someone who pushes their way into the line". I turned around a few minutes later and she was gone.

YES! We saw a Mom & young son at AK at Dinosaur and she was asking how scary it was. Then the next day we saw her again at DHS in the Toy Story Mania queue madness.

Hope you get too much!



Working on uploading my photos to Kodak. I didn't take a ton. It's not like we haven't been there and I would put my camera in my bag when it rained. Gene & Joe are at church-the video guy is showing Joe how to use the mixer on the computer for the 3 cameras and to prepare the video for the cable station. Emma & Lizzy are at different friends' houses. Emma is with a nice boy in the neighborhood who will be in her class. So with all of them out of the house I can get on my desktop to upload the photos.

well its labor day and I am glued to the TV but not watching movies. Watching the local news channel and praying that the winds dont get as strong as the weather man is predicting. So that the fires can be contained.
