What a great trip report! We have always stayed onsite, but I have been contemplating renting a vacation house to have a private pool (I love to swim, but have a thing about public pools). Your report really has me thinking it would be awesome! I love the thought of getting in a nice warm pool at the end of a long day, before heading off to bed. We really want to go to Harry Potter world too! Your pictures are terrific, and your family is just adorable.

Thank you Tigger2252. The vacation home was wonderful. Everyone had their privacy and the pool was a great way to end the day. We had to pay extra for the heat on the pool but it was so worth it.

Here is the place we stayed. I would highly recommend it.

The only small complaint is that the garage is so small our van couldn't fit in it. Some of the homes in the development did have two car garages though.

February 10 That last statement was an understatement. I watched Jeopardy and about 5 minutes of Wheel of Fortune before I was snoring. Karen told me Chuck and Zoey were snoring along with me and Jesse was singing. LOL What a concert. I did wake up about 8:30 and watched Person of Interest and part of Mentalist before I was gone for the night. I woke up a couple of times, but went right back to sleep until 7am.

Chuck was still sleeping so I played with the kids to give Karen a bit of a break.

We to Magic Kingdom around 10. We rode Pirates and Buzz before we had lunch with Sonny Eclipse. Jesse really enjoyed seeing Sonny and had some chicken nuggets. I had a pulled pork sandwich with fries. Now Zoey was sitting next to me and started ďstealing my fries. She thought it was great fun. She would look at me and then giggle while she took another fry.

We rode the People mover to relax and then Carousel of Progress. We walked around and saw the Haunted Mansion for the last time. It was rather warm and humid, so we decided to go home and swim.

Zoey is fearless in the water. Jesse loves for us to hold him while he ďswimsĒ. He wonít put his head in the water, after the first time. Karen showed him how to do it. Then I held my nose and sat on the bottom and then jumped out and shook my head like a dog to get my hair out of my eyes and made a funny noise. Both kids thought that was so funny. Zoey started shaking her head and making my funny sound. I had to do it 4 or 5 more times. Then both kids got cold and we all got out. I think we were all getting a little chilly.

I washed my hair and got ready to go out to dinner. Chuck wanted to try Carrabas. I had the Italian Chicken pizza, with pine nuts, scallions and Fontina cheese. It was really yummy. I only ate one piece with the crust. I can only eat so much, so I scrapped the toppings off and ate that. I wanted to eat the good stuff.

We got home around 7:30 and I got into my jimmies and wrote in my trip report. I also got a lot of stuff packed. Tomorrow is our last day. How did it go so quickly?

Tomorrow I have to call both limo services to confirm for Sunday.

February 11 I canít believe itís come to an end. This has been such a great vacation. I love spending time with Chuck and Karen and the kids, but I think I will be glad to get home and into my own bed.

Today was very chilly and windy. We slept in again and got to Epcot around 10. Chuck and Jesse rode Test Track first while Karen, Zoey and I wanted for the baby swap. While we waited I stopped in Mission Space gift shop for my light up Mickey keychain. I put it on my cane and it lights up with every step. I also bought a keychain vinylmation. I finally got one I liked in the blind package. Itís clear red with X & O on it. I think My DH sent me a Valentine gift.

Chuck and Jesse got off Test Track it was my turn with Karen. Some nice young man gave me a hand to get in. I thought that was very sweet of him. Then Chuck rode Mission Space.

Jesse was so excited to see Nemo again but we rode Imagination first. He loved it and both kids like to make music in the play area. We rode Nemo and then got the free picture with Mickey and Pluto. Chuck and I just watched. It came out very cute.

Our last ride of the trip, by tradition is Space Ship Earth. We walked out and rode home.

They gave the kids a bath and got ready for their dinner in Mexico. Jesse wanted to watch Cars 2 with Zoey cried her eyes out when Mommy and Daddy left. She is at that stage where if she canít see them she cries and cries.

I got her interested in some Gold Fish and juice and then she wanted to draw. I gave her my pen and notebook and tucked her into my bed. She enjoyed it and it hept her happy. She started to lay down and her eyes were starting to close. I picked her up and put her in her pac n play and closed the door. She cried for another 10 minutes and then she fell asleep.

I got most of my packing done. Just some last minute things that I will put in tomorrow. Weíre all getting up at 5 to finish packing and then getting the van packed. I have some things that just wonít fit in my suitcase so it will just have to be lose in the van.

My car will pick me up at 8 and I will be on my way home. Itís going to be down to 35 tonight and tomorrow will be very chilly to start.

I donít know if Iím coming down with something but my throat is kind of sore and Iím kind of achy. Iíll be glad to be in my own bed tomorrow night.

February 12 Last night I fell asleep around 9. The kids came home a little after 8. They were very tired and went to bed soon after.

I had played with Jesse after I put Zoey to sleep, but he got a little too loud and woke her up. Jesse opened her door and told her he was sorry he woke her up. I picked her up and cuddled her for a while and then put her down again to cry it out. I gave Jesse a little snack and then let him watch a bit of Jake and the Neverland Pirates and then told him it was time for bed. I asked if he wanted to play his Leapster for a while, but he said he just wanted to go to sleep. He was really tired because it was only 7:15.

Jesse was a little confused that I wouldn’t be living with them at home. He wanted me to come and play with him on Monday. I told him he was going to go to school, but he still thought I would be there when he came home to play with him. I told him that I would be living in my house and would visit him soon. He said, “But Grandmom, I forget where your house is.” I said, “that’s OK, Mommy and Daddy remember where it is.” AWWWWWWW That made me feel so good that he wants me around. I kissed and hugged him goodnight and he nodded off soon after.

I was up and dressed and packed by 4:45. Chuck and Karen were up at 5 and got the kids ready to go and packed the car.

We checked the house, one last time and then they headed out by 6:45. I had to wait until 8 when my car came. He was right on time. I got through security easily and got to my gate my 9. We should board around 10 and I should be home by 1:30.

So ends another wonderful trip to Disney World. Only 713 more days to go!

Thanks Julie. Believe me, I thank God every day for my family. I don't know what I would do without them.

Well, it's not exactly two years. It's only 708 more days.

Do you mind if I ask which airport you used? We always leave from NY and use Laguardia, but I'm wondering what to do when we live in NJ - Atlantic City or Newark?

I always use Atlantic City airport. It's only 20 minutes away from me. I would never go to Newark I'm used to AC Airport too.

I'm glad you liked that picture. They are both so full of joy there. I think my favorite is the picture where Chuck and Karen are blissfully unaware that Jesse figured that it would be a good time to pull Zoey's hair. Zoey's hair sticks up because she has two cowlicks going in opposite directions too. Even Alice loved to play with it.

Thank you so much for reading my trip report. I had hoped for more readers, but I'll never be a Nebo.

I think this trip report will silently go into the graveyard of finished trip reports. Never to be seen again.
