Love the update!

Are you doing a PTR for your upcoming August vacation? If so, I hope that you post the link here ....... as I want to come along!!!!!!!!
Yes, our extra days were great!
Not sure about doing a PTR for this August.

Noticed in your signature you only have three weeks to go for your next vacation! So jealous!

Will you still be jealous when I tell you that it includes 12 hours on a plane and a 6 hour time change?

Nice update! What a fun way to be "marooned!"

I love your pics - what kind of camera do you have? I really need a new PAS, but it seems all the best pics on the DIS are from people with big cameras.

yeah, if you have to be "stuck" somewhere, it may as well be at Disney, right?

Meg wants a "big" camera, but the one we have is a Kodak Easyshare z950, 12 megapixels, and I think 10 for the optical zoom. It's ok...and still working after it has been dropped numerous times, so I think that's a good thing! I need a point and shoot. No fancy stuff. Not sure I'd know what to do with one!

DTD, again!

Again, sorry so long between updates!!! We've been busy planning for this August's trip!

When we left off, we had just finished a wonderful dinner at Whispering Canyon, and rolled out of there, headed to Downtown Disney.

We stopped for a picture, thinking maybe this would be our Christmas card...

We didn't use it, but it's cute anyways.

We walked around, and happened upon the caricature stand. We watched for a little bit, and I talked Meg into getting one.
Here she is, waiting for the drawing to begin.

She had to keep smiling the whole time. What a chore, huh?!


740 by mlm313, on Flickr

I got bored waiting, so I snapped some pictures of the beautiful sunset.

ok, enough sunset pictures! Here is the finished product!!!


743 by mlm313, on Flickr

Very cute! Meg, playing her guitar. She loved it! I think the face looks a tiny bit like Priscilla Presley! Meg has no idea who that is!
Not too bad, for $29.

After that, we strolled around World of Disney, taking random pictures.

It's the Fab Five!

And crazy, close-up Kermie!


744 by mlm313, on Flickr

We decided to head back to the hotel, and got in line for our boat. We got free stickers!


746 by mlm313, on Flickr

How exciting!

We went back to the room and relaxed! Something that is not usually done on Disney property! At least by us!

Weather for the day: Rainy in the morning, then sunny
Best things for the day: Dinner! and Meg loving her caricature
Worst things: the bus taking 90 minutes, and having to PUSH the bike uphill in the rain


oh, and about a month ago, I got this great new tattoo...very Disney-ish, and I love it, so thought I'd share it here!

Kinda blury, but you get the idea. I had made a wish on a shooting star while on the Magic, back in August of 1998, that I would have a little girl.
And, you know I got Meg (the following May) so it obviously came true!

Thanks so much! One of these days I have to finish this one! I hate when other TRs just stop, or it's a year later and you're still updating, but I'm am obviously one of those people...
I know Meg will finish hers...she is more addicted than I am, plus she has way more time!!! I tried to get her to finish this one, but she wouldn't!
