Loving your trip report so far

Great photos of AK. I wish I had more. Maybe I'll steal yours for my scrapbook, the kids will never know.

Your daughter is cute how she does that shy little smile thing for the camera

oh...that photo with all the scarves up on the ceiling, where is that? Tusker house? I think that's so cool!

Hey Mo!

I'm loving your pic-filled TR! It makes me feel like I'm back there, which is good, bc I'm battling the Post Disney Blues!

Keep it coming,

Angie

Great TR so far! I cannot believe that your kids are triplets! Were you serious? They really are so different! Amazing! The kids all look like they're having a great time!

Subscribing to your TR. Great start!!!!

Glad you found mine. Iím collecting TRís right now of people who were at WDW the same time we were. We were at Epcot and F&W the same time you were. We also did AK that Monday and we did MVMCP on the 15th. We were over in POR building No. 38. Look forward to more of your posts.

I have to say I loved your pictures of Fultonís General Store. We love that store too. The soup from Canada was fantastic. We saw that castle in Germany as well. $37,500. Yeah, we nearly passed out too.

Keep up the good work.

What great AK pics! Loved the Tree of Life pic of the owl - you really took a lot of detailed pics that I had never seen before (or noticed when I visited AK).

I didn't notice your daughter's pose in every picture until you mentioned it - how cute!

Thank you i'm pretty self conscious about this report!!! people write some pretty awesome reports and very entertaining!!
Yep they're triplets! I have the body to prove it! They are really good kids but totally different! Ever since they were babies i tried to keep them with their own individuality never dressed them alike and so on.. well i guess it worked!
They LOVE Disney i really can't believe how into Disney my kids are. it's an obsession, in school all their coloring pictures have a mickey head in there somewhere So instead of putting a smilie on their work i get the Mickey head from their teacher! (she is the best teacher ever)

That castle was CRAZY!!!! are they OUT of their ever lovin minds??? I guess it's been there a while too i don't believe there are any takers for the 37,000?

THANK YOU!!! I love taking pictures.. My family is pretty used to me but i think our comrades were getting a little tired of me stopping every couple of minutes to get the shot i wanted
My Daughter is a NUT! total camera hog. Including ALL photopass pictures i have. I think one Photopass person asked her to straighten out her head.. she did it but afterwards she came to me and said "he wouldn't let me do the shoulder thing" good grief..

Quick side note... some of you know that i show my dogs in AKC obedience? I showed my Golden Retriever Logan yesterday in something called Rally. which i have NEVER done. nor did i understand one bit of it! those signs are crazy!!!to my astonishment we got a perfect score!! 100 out of 100!!! we did get beat out for 1st because the other dog beat us by nano seconds!!! we laughed about it and had a great time!!! Wish me luck we are going to try that again tomorrow!!!
OK as i am sitting here writing this Matt has this on my phone:
Elf Farts
bends over pulls his pants partly down and acts like he is doing the act...
what is a parent to do??? i wish i videoed that...

also need to make another correction... Meghan DID get on EE. rockin roller coaster she was unable to!! geesh.. i better get my trip right!!!!

OK now back to our trip!! So i believe i left off at leaving animal kingdom..
As we were walking out we found another character who looked like she needed some company...

poor girl!! we had to jump in so the guys didn't look too muck like pervs.

and of course..

mind you this is a unexpected picture "a quick snap" so i finally got a shot of her without the head to the shoulder!
we never had to wait too long for the buses which after reading the boards and the horror stories i've heard about the POR i was nervous.. it really was NOT a big deal.
so when we got back to the resort we found out there was a party going on..



I have NO idea what is going on here...


this was neat..


So after we scolded all the stuffies about having parties (we were scared we may have to pay for clean up) we were out to the bus stop waiting another 5 minute and we are off to my second favorite park... HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS!

Firstly....Congrats on getting 100 showing your dog! That is awesome. I have 2 dogs and they are both horrid and don't listen a lick

secondly...love the photo with the guys with Pochantas. They look like they have crushes! When we were there we saw a guy standing with her and he was grinning ear to ear while his family took his photo, just him and her and no kids or anything and it was kind of cute.

Also love all the towel photos and congrats on getting your DD to pose without the head to the shoulder!
