yes that is right

So instead of visiting a park we decide to head out for dessert…. So where do you think we went? (and this was a highlight of our trip)

so glad you enjoyed your evening out and B &C...I know most of the family would enjoy that place too but poor NR unless they have fancy soy ice cream sundaes...I just don't think we'd go...plus my tummy and ice cream don'tn like each other much anymore

looking forward to more...but take care of you and your family be safe

Sorry, I've been MIA! I'm subbed to a lot of threads, it seems, and sometimes I get so tired all I want to do when I'm on the Dis is just read, not comment, necessarily! That's good news about the move. A mini-farm sounds great. We have a move coming up on the horizon, at some point, too, just not sure when...

Tell me about it! Never again! And I only went with my mom. I can't even imagine trying to manage a larger group.

And, yes, seeing things you missed is all part of the reason we keep going back. But to be honest...I'm sure we'd go back even if we had the most perfect, we did everything we wanted to, trip ever!

Beaches and Cream looks yummy...how busy was it when you were there?

Happy Mothers Day!
Just caught up. You have very cute boys. Am enjoying your trip. Good luck with your move. We moved out to the country about 3 1/2 years ago and love it. Well at least some of us do. Can't wait to hear the rest of your trip.

Well, I could have sworn that I posted something after I got caught up a couple of days ago, but I don't see anything. So anyway....I'm caught up, so feel free to fire away with the next update.

next time we will try Ghiradelli, that was the original plan, but couldn't pass up the chance to check out B&C, now a family favorite

That was an original concern too, but since Jack broke the diet and was doing ok, we figured why not, but I'm sure if you call in advance they can have something ready for NR so as to not feel left out

It's ok, I get the same way sometimes

it wasn't busy at all, we walked up and walked right in, it is a smallerish place, and we went after dinner time so I'm sure that had something to do with it. The take out area was busy the whole time we were there.

I think it's the DIS I know I have posted before only to find my posts missing, haha

update coming soon





we sadly did end up having to evacuate our home, it is not flooded, but the streets for us to get anywhere are, so we have been getting settled into a temporary extended stay place until the flood waters go down enough to allow us to return home. In the meantime I have a lot less space to clean and have now been catching up on all I missed and should have an update written and posted by tomorrow We are in very good spirits and feeling very lucky

Hey Jessica! UGH! so sorry you ended up having to evacuate! What a pain- but like you say, you are so blessed to have your home not under water! Glad you have a cozy place to stay until things get dried out and access is better. And just think... less space to clean, means more DISsing time, right?

Hoorah for Beaches N Cream! Those sundaes looks so yummy! sounds like a great evening.

I just stayed at the Beach Club and loved it! The customer service was better than any place else I've stayed (if that is possible).

Your boys look so cute sleeping in the stroller after their AK day!

Exactly more time for DISing, well that is when I can use my computer, I've been letting the kids watch netflix and disney shows on my computer since this place doesn't have Disney Channel I think that has been one of the hardest things for us since it is part of the routine when I'm cooking dinner and for Jack to unwind afterschool

I believe it, the Beach Club was gorgeous and looked like a very nice place to stay.

Thanks, that stroller is their "safe" place and they hide and sleep in it regularly
