Tia, I hope they get Grandma feeling better so she gets her appetite back!

Glynis, happy birthday to the twins! We woke up to snow here too. Supposed to get more tonight. It's not a real common occurrence here, so we're excited.

Thanks about the trip, everyone! Now if I could just say it was all paid off, I'd be happy! It will definitely seem more real when I don't have to worry about that. lol I need to get my act together and figure out which park we'll be at on which day and get my ADR's done.

Hello, DDA!

Just a quick update. Granny seems a lot better today. I guess the doctor called her Lazarus this morning she was so much improved. They tried for something like 5 hours yesterday to do the feeding tube, but she was coughing so much they couldn't succeed. In the end they decided to wait another day and see if she'd eat better. I wondered if it was going to work out like a hospital version of "Scared Straight" and apparently it did. She ate dinner well last night, a good breakfast today and was apparently telling her friend (who checked into the hospital yesterday with heart problems) that she was going to eat the friend's dinner too. Hopefully this is all a good sign and she'll improve quickly now.

In the meantime we've all been conspiring to clean her house, fix things around the house and my aunt has replaced both toilets so hopefully the shock of this all (and her ire with us) doesn't do more harm than good in the end.

It is the 100th Anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. I had hoped to take Bob up there this weekend but we are to get thunderstorms both Saturday and Sunday. That will ruin the blossoms, and the Festival just started!!

Anyway, I found this gorgeous tree when I was out and about this morning and decided to grab a shot of a cherry tree to remember this year.

That is a beautiful tree, Elin. I am sorry that the weather is not cooperating for you to go see the trees in DC. Miles mentioned the other day that he'd like to go to Washington, DC. I said something about him being there before and then realized that he wasn't even 2 yet when we were there last.

Good Morning,

Nice to see so much chatter on here,

Tammi, we'll be looking forward to a trip report of the Dream, are you planning on trying out the slide? Looks like a lot of fun.

I ordered some shirts to make for our June trip, I have to make at least one.

After Bob's eye doctor appointment this morning I decided to take him for a drive in our neck of the woods. It is gorgeous here today and the call of the cherry blossoms was too great. The only thing missing from this show was the beautiful DC monuments in the background of my shots. Well, that and the fact that I left the camera at home and had to use my cell phone instead. Not bad though!

Good morning, DDA!

I finalized our plans for our October trip this morning. For the first time in 27 years we will not be staying in a "Disney" resort! We have five nights booked at the Dolphin and then a 2-night package, also at the Dolphin, for their Food & Wine Classic. The difference in the cost made it a complete no-brainer.

Elin,
Beautiful pictures!

Prices for the Disney resorts are just going crazy. We will be staying off site this spring (2nd time we have done this) but we are really close to the DTD gate. The Dolphins location is fantastic for the F&W.

Yes, Debbie, I will definitely being trying out the AuquaDuck!

Is it a family affair for Aubrey's first trip, or will it just be you and Richie taking the kids? How exciting!

Allergy season is in full swing here. We are having windy weather today, which is making it worse.

When will you be going? We are there Sept. 27 - Oct. 4 in the Treehouse Villas. Becky & her boyfriend are supposed to be coming. Katrina is going to be there but we aren't sure about her husband. We'll invite my mom again. My brother doesn't have his son that week-end, so we aren't sure whether they'll be able to make it.
