You'll have a great time!! Absorbing everything is why we come home from our trips with thousands (and I really mean thousands) of pictures!!

My first trip I had exactly 1000 photos. The second only 599 pictures. I probaably would have had more but I used my flip video camera for the parades and WoC on the second trip. Plus my camera doesn't do nighttime pics very well and with the early sunsets daylight was only about 8 hours each day. The next trip. Yes I believe there WILL be 1000's of photos. I hope to get a new camera before I go too so hopefully I can get some nighttime shots!

Awesome! I didn't take as many pictures last trip.....partly because I was in a funk being away from my kiddos & hiding out in my motel room.....but one trip we took about 5000 pictures! Thank God for digitals.....could you imagine the charge for developing those.......

I'm actually in the process of reading your massive TR from last summer... I just started it yesterday so it will be awhile before I get through it!

Addy has a "Tangled" costume & Anthony has a "Capt Jack Sparrow" costume ready to go. Addy's outgrown a couple princess dresses (Cinderella & Snow White) that the twins can wear. Not sure what Mike & I are doing yet.

I'd actually like to do matching shirts with hats/ears or whatever for one of the parties & then let the kids do the ones I mentioned above. That way we don't repeat....silly I know!!
I like the matching shirts/ears idea. I think cause we are going partly for our anniversary we were going to get bride and groom hats and possibly t-shirts and go as 2nd time honeymooners.

Enjoy your reading!!

That would be very cute!!

I've seen Disney shirts that look like the bodies of characters & your head becomes their head (if that makes sense).....I figured we could then add the ears, hat, etc to finish off the look. Probably can do this somewhat affordably.



Then just add in the goofy hat (which we already own)

This is what my friend and I did. She was Goofy and I was Sorcerer Mickey. All night I was referred to as "Boss" lol. Captain Jack asked why I had fired him lol.

That Goofy shirt is cute. I haven't seen that one before, the one I saw was just the orange shirt with the Goofy name tag and I told DH he should wear a pair of jeans and we could put a patch on them with the ears. Goofy is DH's favorite character but i think he wants to do a couples costume...Too bad Goofy doesn't have a girlfriend . I looked at daisy but after 4 kiddos the costumes I have found are extremely skimpy and just would not look right with my body. Now dopey or one of the other dwarves would be doable!

I like dressing up, but can't see pouring a ton of money into doing so. If we can find a cheap way of doing it, we'll do it. Right now only the kids have costumes.......but still time to work out all the details.

I totally missed the moving part before. Where was I? But, with all that has gone on I guess I have a good excuse.

There is also Children's Hospital in Oakland too, they are a good facility.

I won't lie, I am thrilled at the thought you might be closer to us!!

I think I mentioned it on Janelle's FB page & Kelly noticed it......so that's where it came from!!

We've always wanted to move south, but money has never been there.....if (and that's a BIG if) we can get our adoption credit before summer's end......I think we'll do it. Might be our only chance to totally uproot. We're looking the Sacramento area.......but we just will have to wait to see if this will play out like we'd like.

Did you see my invite for you to come over on Sept 30 to Roseville to join us for dinner. We're getting together with a few families that night. We're staying in Roseville on our way down to DL.....of course if we move down....that will all change. I hope we'll still get to do our trip (it would depend on where Mike ends up working).

Getting closer would be super!!!!!!

I replied about the dinner thing. I am waiting to see Scotty's schedule.


Have you thought about the Woodland area? It is closer to UC Davis and last I knew wasn't as bad.

We haven't set in stone the area we want yet. Been looking Orangevale, Rancho Cordova, etc. I'll go check housing in Woodland next.

That's right......sorry.......my head is throbing & remembering my name has been a struggle the last few days. I totally forgot the twins birthday is tomorrow.....haven't given it any thought at all. Mike works, so we might put it off until Friday (he's off) but really, the girls don't understand it anyways. Just need to figure out what to get them!!
