Hope you all are having a wonderful time Katie!! Wish I were still in Florida, I sooooo did not want to come home. You need to work on Greg to take you on a cruise, it was AWESOME, I think you guys would love it!!

I can't wait to hear about your trip when you get back, I love the mix you have with all the down days, sounds fabulous!

hey all, we are home at last!

Sorry I couldn't update more from our trip, I had really crappy coverage on my cell phone and the dis seems impossible to navigate on that touch screen Plus, I am not a great typist on that little touchscreen.

SO...overall, the trip was great!! It was hot (record high temps yesterday) and of course, June level crowds but with the full 2 weeks, we managed to tackle a lot of on our wanted list.

I enjoyed POP more than I thought I would and we ate WAY too much food I would have stayed longer if I could but Greg was tired of the crowds and the boys were starting to miss home so I had to come back with them

I will do my best to start the TR in the next couple days but I need to tackle the mountain of laundry tomorrow. We got home and I just left all the suitcases in the van, didn't even want to face that task tonight!

ETA: I just noticed my ticker rolled over and says I'm returning next June. What are the chances I will get a second birthday trip??

Welcome home Katie!! I understand why you left the suitcases in the van - if you are anything like me, if they are in the house then they need to be unpacked and put away. I can not stand to have suitcases sitting around when we get home - doesn't matter how tired I am, the unpacking will be done before I go to bed. It's a sickness, I know.

I'm glad you guys liked Pop. I was a little worried. Tackle that laundry and get some good rest.

Welcome back! I can't wait to hear all about your two weeks of fun! Glad to hear you liked Pop and sounds like you have some delicious meals to tell us about!

I'd say that if the ticker says you're going back you should find a way to make it happen. DIS tickers have magical properties, you know.

Welcome home!!! I really look forward to it all! I enjoyed your FB updates. Sometimes the coverage in WDW is really sketchy when the crowds are higher. I always have trouble uploading too-until I get to my resort it seems.

I hope you are have found the floor in your laundry room by now.

The boys absolutely were in love the moment we arrived. It really grew on Greg and I with only a couple minor annoyances. Our room location was great!

Oh we ate WAY too much food but most of it was great!

Magical distickers huh??? Daniel was in tears last night at bedtime when he asked when we were going back and I said I don't know (I could cry too)

I didn't do as good as I should have with the food porn but there will be lots of discussion!

I suppose certain carriers have better coverage in different parts of the county and mine is more of a midwest one.

*******************************

Sorry no updates yet! Laundry is done at last, luggage put away and most other things brought home. While my refrigerator was mostly empty, I took the time to clean it all out before going to the store to fill it up again.

Now I am focused on Patrick's birthday party tomorrow. We went with a pool party to simplify things but I always make the boys cakes so I have that to prepare. We also need to go out today and buy stuff for goodie bags and a few other things. PLUS my SIL and niece/nephew will be coming and since we don't get to see them much, they will be spending a night or two so I have to return my house to a state that will allow that!

Please hang in there, I'll get this going in another couple days!
