Oh that made me cry! Thanks for sharing that with us. We see Disney through the eyes of children quite often but seeing Disney Magic through the eyes of an adult is just as special. She is lucky to have a husband who makes dreams come true.

I know saugage gravy over biscuits is more a southern thing, but we sure love the heck out of it here in Michigan...and that's not that far from Canada...well, parts of it. And you don't have that there much? Oh, missing out!

It was my pleasure. I've said it before but I was so happy to capture both of those reactions. All the planning, sneeking around and saving was all the more worth it because I knew it would mean something to her.

Thank you very much. When I first started thinking about how (or if) I could write a TR I'll admit I was very nervous. I've never done much writing and I didn't want to waste people's time telling a boring story, but I've been very pleased with all the positive feedback. Now that I'm almost done I can't wait to start the next one.

It's def. an American thing. I'm sure there are places up here that offer it, but, I can say with 100 % certainty that I have never been to a restautant that has it on the menu. I see it all the time on shows on the Food Network and couldn't wait to try it...it didn't disapoint.

Thanks for your patience guys...I've been out of the province for a little while, returning home tomorrow night (Saturday). I will try to have the 2nd part of our last day up over the next few days.

I've enjoyed your report! I'm also planning a surprise for my husband and it's a relief to see I'm not the only one crazy enough to keep a several-thousand-dollar trip secret for 11 months!

Oh my! Your EE adventure has me laughing and terrified all at the same time. That pic was definitely priceless!! I've never tried that one before, and you've just scared me away from it again! Can't believe you still tried Splash after that!!

LOVE Nicole's pic with Pinocchio!

Let me tell you...I'll never do it again. It was so much fun at times but keeping this secret was one the hardest things I've ever done. Just heading off phone calls and emails at times was enough...don't even get me started on the paper trail.

You were right on the money in your description...we MUST be crazy!

You have to try EE at least once...after that Splash was a walk in the park (although something tells me my face in that picture isn't too convincing!).

Thanks for the comment on the picture. Nicole was like a 3 year old when it came to meeting the characters....It made everything worth it.

Great...good to have to along. Hope you enjoy! I have to wait for another year and a half until we return...I'm more than a little jealous about your trip in 2 weeks!!! Have a great time!

Sorry for the delay in getting my final post up.....there has been some fierce scrapbooking going on in my house regarding our trip...I've been called up from the minors to assist. Hope to have my last submission up by weeks end. See you soon.

You are THE man! Do you give husband lessons? If so I will send you your first student. I have been making albums for 11 years and have asked him to write one letter in the back of each one of the albums for the kids when I complete them. Not one letter yet and here you are pinch hitting in the album dept, after planning an incredible trip and writing a fantastic trip report about it!!!!

You're too kind...I am A man...although surely not THE man....and if there was a course in how to be a better husband I wouldn't be an instructor as much as a student for sure. In the Green household we have decided that as this was our first trip we want to document it in the best manner that we can....I'm just giving her a hand. I'm sure that we will never scrapbook our upcoming trips....Scrap booking is an a$$ kicker to be sure!! I may throw a few pages on here to get your opinion....be gentle!

Although I'm sure I have NO readers left, I'm going to try this upcoming weekend to get the final post on my TR DONE!

I'm sure at this point I'm just talking to myself...but to anyone out there that keeps checking back, I'll get this wrapped up by the end of next week!!!

PROMISE!!
