What Do You Do With a Nine Pound Lemon?? LINK TO NEW TR!

Make lemonade, of course!!!





Hello and welcome to my fourth trip report!!

So what's with the title? The idea came about during a conversation on Living with the Land where I suggested we make margaritas when asked what you do with a nine pound lemon. Unfortunately, I don't think lemons are an ingredient in margaritas....but I'm getting ahead of myself! We'll get to that conversation eventually.

But I thought that quote was fitting because the nine pound lemon is sort of a metaphor for this trip. As Lou Mongello would say while trying to explain why the Main Street Bakery is on his list of Top Ten sounds in Walt Disney World, "Just go with me here!"

Much like a nine pound lemon being way to large to even know what to do with it all, as was this trip! Disney handed us a nine pound lemon of a trip and by god, we made some freaking lemonade! Or maybe a Grey Goose slushie would be more fitting....

If you read along in my PTR, you already know that this long weekend had the most action a Disney trip has ever had! (A disney trip of mine, anyway.) If you'd like to catch up, here it is!
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2625653

(Links to my other TRs can be found in my signature!)

Normally it's just the two of us so, aside from going with both my family and Tom's family, we also had MNSSHP, first weekend of Food and Wine, the Halloween 5K AND the 40th anniversary.

This is probably the MOST excited I've ever been to tell you all about my trip. The pictures are amazing and we had such a fantastic time!

So who was on this amazing trip??

Nikki (that's me!)



DH - Tom



My family - Mom, Dad, Sister, Niece, BIL


(We were only with them for a few hours one night so I just put a pic of us all together!)

Tom's brother Gary....(this pic was taken RIGHT after he sipped the Beverly! Wait until you see the picture taken a second later!!)



Gary's wife Erin..... (indulging in a butterfinger cupcake...SPOILER ALERT!)




(Here's a nicer picture of the two of them!)



.... and their son Conor



I just can't WAIT to get started!!!!

Sorry that I didn't see you around at any parks. Can't wait to hear how your experiences compared to ours. We had a wonderful time, but now I know why we don't do 5 day trips anymore. It's so short and we did miss just a few things, but that's ok. We had a blast and can't wait to go back again soon.

I bought them last year! A few people mistook them for bride ears because I got a few congratulations!

Brook, you don't even KNOW! At least once a day, one of us randomly said something to the effect of, "These lanyards are awesome!" They were so perfect! The best was I kept my photopass card in there and they were able to scan it right through the plastic so I didn't even have to take it out! Soooo easy!
