You deserve it after that mess - enjoy yourself! I can't wait to see the pictures when you all get back.
Thanx Dawn & welcome "officially" to the Dis!!! Well I'm hoping the IRS trials are over very soon.....I did get a letter in today's mail saying we'd get our refund in 2-3 weeks, but when I had called them they told me it would be mailed out today.....I sure hope thats right & not that we'd get a letter saying we'd get in in a few weeks.....lol I guess Monday or Tuesday mail will be the answer to that question!!

Okay good! I was busy running around all day so tonight was my first real chance to get on my computer so I could go on the Dis. Thankfully tomorrow I only have one kid in school.

Yes I did, I forgot I didn't reply back. I probably won't do the tour this time around...not with having just one day in the parks. We are so limited on time and I don't want to feel restricted or anything. I have a feeling this trip is just going to make me want to bring Chris and Ayden back so bad next year and I'd rather save those special things for when they are with me. I'll have my co-worker Karen with me too so I wouldn't want her to feel like she had to do the tour too. I don't even know if she'll have the same interests as me as it is....

We're supposed to have some kind of special tour the day of the Conference and it sounds as if it's in the park so I'm really excited to see what that's all about.

Ok, no problem....I will plan on doing it the next day.....its a must on my list. I figured I would want to do the 2 holiday rides & they're included during the tour.....that takes care of those on my list & then seeing the parade is also a must & I'll get reserved seating for that. Fireworks is also a huge must & so I will get to that after the parade. Actually I'm hoping to catch the fireworks both nights.....I love fireworks!!!!

Ok, so with Mike home I was able to find out what camera he has his eyes on. It's a Nikon D-7000.



I'm sure he'll come on & post about what this camera can do......pretty fancy though!!

I absolutely LOVE the fireworks too. Do what works best for you, since I dont' know what we're going to end up doing it's hard to commit to anything. I know we'll catch up at some time or another. We may have a late dinner that first night and eat at Downtown Disney. I've been wanting to try Ralph Brennans, have you eaten there before?

Ralph Brennan's is the bomb!!! If you go for a dinner after the fireworks....I will definitely join you!!!! I'm not sure of park hours, but I thought I read that it would probably be closing at 9pm. Hopefully hours will get posted soon!!

So this bad boy is a 16.2 MP camera with intercahangable lenses. Once the learning curve takes place it can do almost everything, HD movies, shoot still pics upto 6 frames/ second. shoot in low light with good clarity even with action shots (tech speak: up to ISO 6400 that can expand to 12,600 ISO). This feature will be great for dark rides, without using the flash, where we seem to have problems getting good clear pics. It also has several special shooting modes and of course AUTO mode. The reviews I've read put equal or higher than their $5000 professional models in many areas.

In my own defense, I've had a long love of photography even having my own darkroom when Laurie and I met. That said, rekindling this hobby especially at DL would be great fun and hey we all love seeing pics from DLR.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it

And just think Mike of the wonderful pictures you can get of the kids. I think a good camera is an investment. I want to get a Pentax because I have lens that were my dads that were good lenses that I would be able to use.
