Wow, what a crowd at Magical Express! I don't remember seeing it that bad when we flew in the few times.

I sure wish I could get Tom to fly again but he likes having the car. Thank goodness he likes driving at night so I can sleep the 14 hours away!

Pop looks like a lot fun! I can't wait to read more.

We called and still call them RUNNERS. Kind of hard when you are doing swim lessons in the pool and the little one is able to get up from sitting on the edge and take off. I have learned to ask parents if their kid is a runner so the guard on deck is prepared.

We had one today - no lessons just running around the waterpark, Sebastian. I used the bathroom in the locker room and as soon as mom put him down he took off. I caught up with them later in teh lobby ad he was banging his head against a window in our party room. Then she had to corral him to leave. I thought the whole thing was amusing.

Oh Jill is right, just like Chris was. Yes he got swatted a few times for thinking it was a game to snatch and run.

It is amazing how quick they can turn on the motor and take off. It is almost like you see the skidmarks as they take off.

My brother used to take off a LOT. He also used to never want to hold my mom's hand in parking lots, so I have memories of walking through parking lots, holding my mom's hand while she had a grip on Michael's forearm with her other hand so he couldn't take off. Sometimes he'd get really upset about it, so I also have memories of him crying and getting "spaghetti legs" while we were walking and my mom was holding his arm. Then he broke his leg at age three playing on an old swingset in our new house's backyard (the house where we are now) -- it was one of those swings where the two people face each other, and his foot got caught under it when he was getting off (or he fell off, I can't remember) and his leg just snapped. He also had to wear glasses starting when he was two or three, and he'd come home from preschool with them all twisted and mangled. My mom would ask him what happened and he would say either "nothing" or "I don't know." He was very "busy."

Everything is so expensive for that week. And, of course, they will jack up the prices of the table service meals, too.

Even the values are sometimes pretty expensive. I hope you enjoy your stay. You'll get to see the progress at AoA, too.

I was happy tonight that it was March break here....alot less traffic on the drive home.
Yes, you are missing something good. It's a different kind of podcast than the DIS. I like all the different ones for the different things they offer. This one highlights trips, resorts, restaurants, etc. Go to the website, then go to Past Episodes. You can scroll through and see the topics you are interested in. They have podcasts on Mondays and Fridays.

for SIX days of freedom!

I wanted the little mickey mouse hand appitetizer plates but they were small and I was not sure what I would do with those!

Caleb loves his Gickey Mouse!
I do the same thing - think I need something, but I'm not sure how and when I'll need it.
I need more storage area for all

Your Mickey party will be a big hit, I am sure. It's nice to know we're not the only ones who think way ahead.

I admit that I have become spoiled to flying. My leg swells up when we drive. It's not too bad, though, since we stop halfway, and it is nice to make that grocery run before we hit Disney property. We load up on fruit, for one thing, and Jill doesn't have to ship diapers.

Sounds like you should. She's probably about to give you a good run for your money!

I snapped a finger once, and it hurt like the dickens. I can only imagine what a whole leg would feel like. Mine was reaching out to grab my purse back from a boyfriend who had taken it and run off, being silly. We were about 13, maybe, and just being silly. I reached out to grab it at the same time he cut back. My pinky finger got caught in the loop and snapped. The tip of my finger was backwards, almost touching my wrist. It was weird looking and a tiny bit painful.

Parking lots scare me a lot. They are dangerous even for adults, much less kids. I get a little paranoid when we are in parking lots with the girls.

My boys have led me to doctors and emergency rooms many, many times. Jill was a breeze compared to them!

Have a super spring break! Yaaa! Ours doesn't start till April 15th

I resorted to those leashes for young kids when my kids were young and wanted to get out of the stroller. I gave all the people who gave me mean looks a look back as if to say....its this or she will take off.

We arrived really early too...I think 8:17 am and we were the only ones at ME check in and they had us bypass the counter all together. And we were the only ones on the ME bus too. I am shocked that they have crowds like that...wow! What a sight.

This made me laugh I can just imagine how many times Josh and Jeremy will have to go to the emergency room with Kazin and Caleb. My mom got lucky with me. I've only been to the ER twice. The first time was when I was 5. I was playing on a playground and tripped while running down the little hill. I put both hands on the ground to catch myself and apparently landed at the wrong angle and broke my right collar bone. I cried a bit, but I was okay. I was in a sling for weeks and could only wear button down shirts because I couldn't get a shirt over my head without it hurting. The second time, wasn't an injury. I was 8 and I apparently had the flu or something and I fainted...during my mom's bell choir rehearsal at the church. I woke up like 30 seconds later with about 10 people standing over me. It was kind of embarrassing

Hooray for spring break! Mine's not until the 3rd week of April. The saturday after our spring break is my 18th birthday! I'm hopefully going to a Red Sox game that day and possibly meeting up with Meg. DIS meets are already fun, but a birthday DIS meet will be even better!

I always forget that you guys have spring break so much earlier than the schools here (except for the colleges -- I am on break, too!) I guess it's because you go back to school earlier and get out earlier. My sister's and my mom's starts April 15. Kailyn leaves for Disney the 14th. She feels very guilty over leaving the day the day after my birthday, but I'm excited for her and I am really hoping that she sends me a bunch of pictures!

Caleb loves his Gickey Mouse!
Toby ADORES "Mittey" - he always shouts it at the TV when it comes on - or he'll shout "Donal" too. He goes "oooooh tottttles" too!!!

I wish I lived over there - I know I would get so much good stuff for his party theme! I am just deciding how to make a cake. I am thinking I might have to get a Mickey Head cookie cutter from ebay and make icing mickey head shapes in black, white, read & yellow... I'm not good with proper icing of cakes etc.!

What did you win? I think I was, or either I remember you talking about it. It's been a while, but I remember something about it.

I'd love to have a pool here for the girls as they grow up, but I would have to have a huge privacy fence and lock to feel safe for the neighborhood kids' sake, and I would need an alarm, cover, etc. for the safety of the kids who came to my house. It would probably bring me more worry than happiness, though, so that, along with the cost factor, will probably keep me from ever getting one. Swimming would be the perfect exercise for me, because it would be easy on my feeble legs, and I was a good swimmer as a young person. For that reason alone, I would love to have a pool, because I could swim away a whole bunch of pounds.

Bella will need a leash of some sort when she starts wanting to be out of the stroller more. She can't be trusted.

Yeah, we're usually in those small groups who get right on the bus pretty much. This was a different experience.

I hope you get the ball game and the DIS friend meet.

I'm sure your mom appreciates that you were an easy child and didn't make her get too familiar with a bunch of doctors.

I know she will send you lots of pictures to enjoy.

Which you will, in turn, put up for us to see, right?


Yes, Jill would have been the coloring one, or more likely, she would have had a book.
Having her first made me fall in love with kids more than ever and want more.
Then I got these crazy boys for my greed!

You can probably get just a few main party supplies from ebay, and then fill in with the basic red, white, yellow, and black colors. Cookies are better than cake for kids, though, so I wouldn't even stress over a cake.

Before you know it, our little rascals will be two!

So, up to now, we have found our way from home to BNA, from BNA to MCO, from MCO to ME, from ME to Pop, and from Pop, we've seen the new stuff going on at AoA.

Pop had a different 'vibe' this trip, as the lively Hippy Dippy Pool was all closed up. Here's a picture I have not ever taken until this trip.



They're getting it all ready for the summer crowds yet to come.



We made our way back to Classic Hall and did a bit of browsing.

Our first trip of 2011.



We're booked for three more, so we'll keep our fingers crossed that they all come through.

Duffy and assorted outfits.







How Minnie is stylin' in 2011.



Old friends and a new one.



40th anniversary things.







I fully intended to get those ears before I left, but we were so rushed in the last few minutes of the trip getting back from Epcot to UnME that I totally forgot about them. I have only had one set of ears, the classic ones, in my life, so I thought it would be appropriate for these to be my second pair, since I really was there 40 years ago. I'll get them in July.



We found something exciting had just happened in the food court.

New mugs!



They were really just coming out on the shelves that minute. After we got to our table, we had CM's stopping by to see them, as they didn't even know they were out yet.

There were new napkins, too.



Yes, I am 53 years old, closing in on 54, and I take pictures of Disney napkins.

We shared a pizza as we waited for a BOGP friend, Debbie, to come over to meet for a few minutes. We enjoyed meeting her, but I didn't remember to get a picture.

Here's Jill modeling Pop pizza and a new mug.



Bella couldn't be bothered for a picture, as she had pizza to attend to.

After the pizza and the meet, we started out for Magic Kingdom. First, we needed to make a potty stop.

That would prove to be a wrong move.

And a right move.

Both of those.

Gasp! The Hippy Dippy was drained? How sad!

I really just can't wait to get my hands on some of that 40th anniversary stuff and the new mugs! I know I will need one with a pink lid.

Love the new mugs and know already I'm going to have a difficult time selecting amongst the 40th anniversary merchandise!

Wow that Duffy has quite a wardrobe!

I just love a happy day at WDW and arrival day is always extra special with your whole visit stretching out in front of you.

Enjoy your spring break!!!
