After lucn we did a little shopping & of course we had to do some dancing!



Now some shopping!

Kelly loved her new ears!
It was time to leave the AK to go back to CBR for some much needed pool time!

It's good for a quick nosh & is so relaxing. The meal was bettera a couple of years ago, but it's still worth doing.

Hi Doris!
Just had the chance to get caught up! Looks like a great AK day. You really did get a bunch done! What brave girls to ride EE!!!

We haven't ever done the picnic. Would you do it again?

Your granddaughters are adorable. I love the picture of them in their raincoats.

What a lovely area for picnic in the park. I have to say - I am not even sure where that is. It's lovely, though, and looks so relaxing and peaceful.

What a great morning in AK!

I would certainly do it again. It's just the right amount & the sandwiches are good. The tote bag is useful, also.

It's good if you don't want to wait to get served & want just a light lunch.

We did have a great time there, but the girls & their mom didn't make it back to AK. Bob & I went back later.

I will update tomorrow, hopefully a nice long update.

My Weekend

This is by request from MEK! I had to attend an event this past weekend which kept me from posting in a timely manner. I had to do a hearth cooking demo for the public at the Crabill House. It was built in 1820 or so & is on a hill overlooking a lake in Springfield, Oh.


This is me hard at work tending to my pie.


Noodle soup, roast pork, yeast bread & apple pie were on the menu.

Weekend Continued


I was making noodles & making a comment to my DH. It was lots of fun but very tiring! It can be amusing because of some o fthe questions that the public will ask! Let's just say they don't know much about the past!

This event went until 8:00 pm. After dark a wake was held in the parlor, one of our members portrayed the corpse. He did a good job, no way could I lie in a coffin & not move for a couple of hours!!

Now back to the 21st century!

Pool Party Time

After spending th emorning at the AK, we decided to visit the CBR's main pool.

It was time for the 2:00 pool party which was held daily. The first thing that we did was to play Bingo. We were showered with Pixie Dust as Anne, me & Kelly all hit a bingo!

Next the girls entered a dance contest. Kelly was one of the last three left standing.

Kelly in the life jacket.

Pool Continued

We were having such a great time & the girls really love the water. There were several more games that were played. If you are planning a stay at CBR be sure to do at least one Pool Party. The CMs really know how to encourage everyone to play along.

The pool was not very crowded which made for lots of fun & not many obnoxious children running around! It was a shame that the girls didn't get back to pool again during their stay. Anne was an Uber Commando touring those parks! She wanted to make sure that every ride was ridden. She dosen't know when or if they will be back. She sure would like me to buy into DVC since it can be passed on!

We had to leave the pool area as we had 5:00 ADRs for Chef Mickey's.

I will have to post later in the week as we leave in the morning for the Smoky Mountains. Going to Gatlinburg & see some leaves, also chill out & of course shop at the outlets!!

If anyone wants to see those photos, just ask & I will do a mini TR.

I would definitely LOVE to see those photos and read the mini trip report, Doris!

I loved to see the cooking demo you did! How much work went into those dishes! It's a shame we don't really remember how labour intensive those days were!

Guess what ....... we have stayed at CBR and NEVER knew about the pool party! Well, you never stop learning new things at WDW!

Enjoy your trip and travel safely!

I guess I will have to write about our trip to the Smokies!

It was alot of work, but I really enjoy doing it. It takes planning so that know which pots to take & the utensils. Most of my cooking things are antiques.
The pool party may have been something done in Sept.
