Yeah, I pretty much gave up on that project, didn't I?! Thanks for the welcome - it's nice to be back! Leo's doing well - we're definitely still spending a ridiculous amount of time with The Mouse, though we've added The Wizard and The Simpsons to our Central FL Theme Park arsenal.

After borrowing some points from my next use year to cover the trade, and some discussion around a few other items, I was off the phone. The whole process only took about 15 minutes.
This is really encouraging - I have no plans to trade in the near future, but figure we might down the road and I wondered what the process was like.

The "City" portion of the trip is for two of our clan, Judy and Lauren, spending 3 nights in June, in New York City.

My goodness, Glenn. Between the Pre-Trip Report and the Actual Trip Report threads, do you actually have time with your family? Do the kids have to schedule time with you around your DisBoard visits? "Sorry, Lauren, I am updating my 250-page TR on that day. But I have an opening on January 18 at 1:30. Oh wait, I'll be at work then. Can you meet with me on January 29 at 11:30pm? Oh, you'll be sleeping at that time?"

I have a new job which takes up so much time, I rarely visit the DisBoards anymore at work. And I have a four-year-old who takes up so much of my time that I rarely visit at home, either. The exact opposite of you, apparently.

In any case, I will do my very best to try to keep up with this mammoth beast that you call a PTR. It's only 7 pages now, but you and I both know it will easily be 868 pages by the time you take your next trip.

Ribbing aside...oh wait. I don't think I have any non-ribbing comments.

Until the next segment...

Hi Cin! Good to have you along.

I agree, planning is half the fun...and I don't tell my family so that I can keep it all to myself.

I'm sure the worst will be when James goes through his senior year and we have our last "lasts". Right now it's just weird.

Well, if I'd ever figured out how to post to it maybe you would have known you had a reader.

Sounds great! We still haven't made it over there, and unfortunately am not planning it for this upcoming trip either. But someday, I promise!

It seems like it's easy as long as there's availability. If not, then I think you need to supply some other potential dates for them to look into for you, etc.

Who? Oh yeah, those people. I took a few months off after the last TR ended until I started this one to get reacquainted with them. Now I think we're good until June, when I'll see them for the trip.

Ha! I can see you still have a youngster at home....I've reached the point (and this is terrible to admit) where at least Lauren and sometimes Marlene stay up later than me.

That sounds about right.

That's because they're up late, reading your TRs and PTRs so that they can get to know the father they never see anymore.

I'd say so. Too bad you couldn't weasel your way into the NYC trip though.

Aw thanks -- we did! And I hope your family did as well.
We did too! Lots of family, lots of fun and too much peppermint bark and fudge. Christmas goes so fast though, I think we should petition to have it made into a week long holiday rather than just one day.

Great! Good to hear. Now, how 'bout that link?

We're planning on a "parents only" trip to the new Hawaiian DVC resort in 2014, which will be a milestone anniversary for us.

Once a year is probably good, especially for you living relatively close....it's a special treat, and doesn't completely break the bank.

I haven't seen the Lethal Weapon series past the 2nd one, so you are probably right, but it wasn't the movie I was thinking of....I was thinking of the ending of The Dead Poet's Society.

My kids and teaching wife only had last week off -- they didn't even have yesterday, Jan. 2nd off. I guess the school district didn't realize that everybody else was taking it as a holiday.

Glenn I've done 2 Sr nights at football games already, seen one graduate from college and Michelle will graduate from LSU in December of this year. Since Danielle is only 12 I have a very long wait before I'm done. Michelle is planning on tying the knot March 2013 so the next year, we will be busy with planning that. It all just seems to go by in a blur.

Enjoy Lauren's SR year. My oldest is a boy and didn't really get into the school stuff much. He did spend all 4 years in the band so we did enjoy that. Michelle was very much into school and I had a great time experiencing her SR year. Fun but very expensive. Looking back she says she loved high school, it the best time in her life.

How did I miss this????? I"m so in!

I went with my parents a few years ago to visit NYC for Christmas. It was fantastic. We saw Lion King on Broadway and I saw it again the other day in Denver. Told my Dad it just wasn't the same without him snoring through it!

Wicked is a fantastic show. I've got to get tickets for the next time it plays here this spring.

Lauren's had a pretty good time also. Marlene's a freshman and we got her to join the marching band (it was like pulling teeth, no scratch that, it was worse), and she found out she loves it. So she's on her way to a good high school experience too, I think.

Judy got to escort a class's day trip to NYC last spring and saw the Lion King. She texted me from the show that it was awesome.

I LOVE IT!!!

So much dancing! Where did Patrick get those dance moves? Oh wait, I saw Dan dancing there too, so that explains it.

Patrick seems like such a happy little guy. Enjoy every second of it!

Thanks for sharing the video.
