And here's the button I made at the Community Hall. We each got to make one. Normally they are made for a fee - but due to the rain that morning, they were letting people make them for free

Will have to remember to bring some pins. Thanks.

It was a 2 BR - though this front room is the same for a 1 BR as well. The 2 BR can sleep 9. The 1 BR sleeps 5.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, the 2nd bedroom has two queens, then there's the sleeper couch that my daughter is lying on, and a sleeper chair (behind where I was standing to take this shot)

I'm sure DW would kill me if I came back from Chicago with a DVC membership!

Here's another view of the room, from a different angle - the door to the right leads to the 2nd bedroom & 2nd bathroom, and the hallway leads to the front door, and another hallway behind the kitchen to the laundry room, master bedroom & master bathroom. The master bedroom had a door leading out to the balcony - so it made for a cool circle that made playing hide & seek really fun with my DD.

...but after the bloodshed, she might get over it. It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission right?!

Lets see. DVC vs spending time in the DDC dog house. I say go for it but then again, I am a bad influence. At least you will have some interesting company in the DH.

Off to try to get some shut eye. Have a good night.

Gotta run - the tornado sirens just started sounding....
Glad that everything broke up before it got to you. But I'm like you in a way; can't sleep when there is wind/thunder, etc.....

DW and I are going out for dinner, but that’s all… For now...
The celebration will be on the Dream at the end of June (would have liked to been aboard now, but I am still a slave to the school calendar for the next couple of years).

Later on…
Happy Anniversary.

Don't worry. We've got a very high quality dog house here. It hasn't been imported yet, but, as someone who frequents it regularly, I can vouch for it's roominess and comfort.
