Cool Headin South for Some "Tooth" Whitening!! A Dizneydawn TR ACTUAL Update 7/14


Welcome to another Dizneydawn TR!!!! This was one of the best trips I have ever had. We took it slow and easy and laughed at the one liners overheard and seen in so many places I had a hard time picking out one to use for a title.

This trip was a tester of life to come for this household. Usually we have a posse with us but as kids grow, they head out on their own and it was just me, Dan and Baylor this time. I thought Baylor might feel lonely for his siblings but overall, he enjoyed not fighting for bathroom time, getting to make decisions on restaurants, park directions and daily activities that usually he is run over about. He wished a few times for a "Wing Man" but that was strictly about girls. Dan did not qualify due to his senior citizen status at age 42!

Dan and I drove to Florida, Baylor flew in a few days later and we spent a week at POFQ, doing the parks and then had a few days in the Clearwater area. Truthfully, next Spring Break when we have everybody, I think we might do Universal or Bush Gardens and spend the rest of the time on the water. We found a paradise like no other I have seen. Baylor even asked if it was where they filmed "Pirates of the Caribbean" when the cast is stumbling on a beautiful shoreline in crystal clear water!

I am so excited to relive all of the details with you and I am also doing a separate Food Review for those who want detailed descriptions of what was great and what was horrible for the palette!

Do not feel sorry for the gang that did not join us! Treyner went to Playa del Carmen with his girlfriend Taylor and her family. Here are some photos of them so you #1 know they had a good time and #2 make me feel better by agreeing that I am not alone in NEVER having vacation pictures turn out like theirs!

For a second i had to do a double take! Looks just like me and Dan!

Try and ignore the face fuzz and notice Taylor in his reflection!

Really? I mean why don't I think to pose like that???

If I jumped in the air, half of me would still be on the ground!

Young love

So that is what it should look like snuggling without bellies getting in the way!

Seriously, they had a great time and Taylor's folks are great to Treyner. Or should I say "Trey" because that is what he goes by in college now!

Then we have Miss. Carsyn who headed to Jamaica Mon with 5 of her best girlfriends and a set of parents! I am happy to report there was no drama and everyone had a great time!

Carsyn and Sara (For those who have been with me a long time - she was Treyner's Junior Prom Date!)

Carsyn and a new friend she met!!

Carsyn & Sara again! Pretty girls inside and out!

I love this picture of her!!! Need to use it for sure for Grad invites!!!

So "Don't Cry for me Argentina" for those two! Although I am excited for the whole gang to be together next year again! Carsyn and Treyner will both be at Anderson and Baylor will be the only one left at home.

Up next...the departure day and adventures along the way!!!!

I will link Chapters Here for easy viewing!!!!

Of course I am in!! I was so excited for a new TR that I subbed and replied before I even read!! I know it will be awesome - site unseen ! Let the report begin!

ETA - Ok I went back and caught up on the pics - O.M.G. those two should be models for Hollister!! I have said it before but really they are an amazing couple and Carsyn is just so beautiful, not to mention Baylors new smile!! Truly blessed you are! Really, if I ever took a picture of my dh sunglasses I am pretty sure it would not be my reflection in the mirrors and god forbid I would ask to pose like some of those - he would think I was nuts! Can't wait for the fun to begin!
