Most Expensive / Moist Exhausting Continued - Final thoughts and wrap-up

I guess we got rather talkative on the first thread for this trip report and so we need to open another one to finish this baby. But, since we max’d-out the first thread, that just points out that I owe a big ‘thank you’ to all who have contributed to the between-chapter banter and have made this so much fun. So, THANK YOU!

If you’re new to my trip report, please feel free to join in. It’s great to know who’s reading along and to hear what you think. The first part of this trip report can be found HERE and the Table of Contents from Part I is in the next post below for easy reference. The Table of Contents for this thread, Part II, or “Most Expensive / Moist Exhausting Continued”, (ie. “the new stuff”), can be found in post 3, below. Also, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that there was a Pre-Trip Report for this vacation, and it can be found HERE. Oh, and heck, if you’re researching my Disney life that much you little stalker , here’s a link to a trip report from our 2009 trip HERE.

Well, I know this isn’t the Intro to the whole trip report, but since it’s a new thread I feel like I should do at least a picture and short introduction of who’s who. So, with that in mind…here we are:



That’s me, Glenn, on the left. Our oldest daughter Lauren is next. Then my lovely wife, Judy, followed by our second-oldest daughter Marlene, and finally our youngest, our son James. Oh, and you probably already know Mr. Potatohead, standing behind us.

We spent 9 days on the trip, and through the first thread of this report we’ve covered about 6 and ½ of them. So, there’s not that much left to go, but we obviously couldn’t have squeezed it into the few last pages of the first thread.

Oh, if you’re new here, you may notice people shouting-out their “Judy sightings” after I post a chapter. It’s a little game we started that’s like “Where’s Waldo”, but instead of Waldo, you’re looking for my wife, Judy. It wasn’t planned before the trip, so I didn’t take any intentionally tricky pictures, but we’ve had plenty of occasions where she’s in a picture but tough to find. And “parts” count -- for example, you might see her wrist next to a plate of food in a food porn picture. Anyway, the first person to post the correct count wins all of the totally worthless points for that round.

Well, that seems like enough rambling to begin another thread. Let’s get back to the show.

Table of Contents - No Judy's.
And since they're worthless anyway (although, I suspect the winner will get a shiny title) you are really smoking in this game, GB!! Great to see ya!

@ Glenn.... I like your power fist/commando touring Dad pose there!
