I can't wait to hear all about it! I can't blame you for going ahead and letting it out instead of waiting to reveal it in the TR, it about killed me doing that in my TR You're ring is beautiful! See, we all said Tim was a keeper.. he just proved us right

Also, do you have a date yet?
Thank you!!! I don't know how you waited to reveal your engagement, it was killing me I just wanted to tell everyone We actually have set a date already, I know that was pretty quick lol but we decided on next September 21st 2012...I cannot wait!! He was very happy when I showed him your reply about being a keeper, made him smile!

Someone needs to tell me all about their running experiences and update their report *hint hint*

We have to leave...but I only slept for 2 hours!!



I feel like this vacation was one we were super prepared for. Everything was packed and ready to go and I laid down in bed at 7 pm...and watched tv...and rolled around. I was exhausted from running 10 miles that morning...but could not fall asleep Tim fell asleep right away when he went to bed a few hours later. I am not sure if I ever fell asleep or just laid there with my eyes closed Either way our alarm went off at 3 am

As tired as we were, once that alarm went off we were up and getting ready right away We left our condo and hit the road to Tim's parents house. We changed cars and Tim's dad drove us to the airport super early (I just like to get through security as soon as possible)

I swear we were the first people at our gate waiting



Very excited to get to Orlando

Our flight was quick and ordinary which is always a good thing for flying I slept a tiny bit and tried reading. We were landing before I knew it and racing off to our ME bus!!

This was the first time I have ever had a real wait for a bus, but about 15 or 20 minutes later we were on board and in the very first set of seats





Usually my ME bus ride is pretty boring, but this time around we were SOOOO excited and had some random guy behind us that kept us entertained.

Once the video started and it explained the check in process...the guy behind us started getting a little irritated (he was speaking to his wife during these conversations) about the fact that he didn't know about online check in. So he proceeds to call people back home to get his confirmation number and attempt to do online check in from his phone about 40 minutes away from arriving at his resort He became even more irritated once the characters in the video announced check in time is 3 pm He was so angry he couldn't get in his room earlier (which of course just depends on the room availability)

I don't know why, but we found this hilarious...I mean at that point theres really no use for online check in...but not according to this guy!!

Because we grabbed the first seat I got some great pictures of the entrance sign which made me very happy





Random guy's wife starts taking pictures and he says "We've been here 4 times the last 3 years and now you want a picture of the sign" How come idiots like this get to go that often (plus he was staying at AKL which I was jealous of )

We stopped at Caribbean Beach to drop off a few guests, during which the guy became irritated for some reason and mumbled something to himself. We both started laughing...Tim was certain he said "Jesus Walt" but I disagree I am pretty sure he said "Eagle Vault" Neither make sense but I was crying I was laughing so hard

We were off to POP! and I was in a great mood

Gotta love the crazies!!! They're everywhere, I tell you. I would have been cracking up along with you. I have no understanding of people who seem to be irritated by the tiniest things. Just go with the flow people. It's not that serious.

Great update! Your ME ride sounds like it was fun! I don't get how they have been there 4 times in 3 years and didn't know about online check in!

Love your pics of the entrance sign!

Four visits in three years and no idea about on-line check-in? I'd hate to see how much that guy and his wife are missing at the parks if they are unaware about something as basic as check-in.

At least he gave you and Tim entertainment on the ME ride over. Can't wait to read more.

Can't wait for the next update!
