I'm not sure if I'll get an update up today or not. I have to write an article for my blog and update it with my TR, and I have been putting it off. It shouldn't take too long, but then again, I haven't touch it for 2 1/2 weeks.

I had to share a little excitement though.
I got a PM from one of the gals on Passporter. I post my TR's there as well. This girl writes for Passporter and she has fabulous TR's as well. I want to be her because she travels to all these great places.

Anyways, she sent me a PM and asked if she could use some of my Universal pictures for the books. Most likely it will be in the Brittish Holiday one and possibly another. It was kind of exciting. My name will be attached to the photos used, so I'll be a celebrity! Ok, not quite a celebrity, but as close to one as I'll ever get.

The Dis has been giving me fits the last two or three days and, apparently, the post that I posted an update or two back isn't showing up. I'm betting some other person is looking at my post and thinking "what the heck is she talkinga bout" cause it's posted on the wrong trip report.

Let's see if I can remember what I wanted to comment on. The hotel you stayed in looked nice and it sounds like it was in a great location if you're visiting Universal Studios.

Wait....I wanted to comment on Claire getting the word "Bomb" out of her system. As soon as I read that, I thought about "Meet the Parents" when Ben Stiller kept saying bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb on the airplane.

Okay, back to the other stuff. I remember that long walk from the Universal parking garage to the park. And, I remember the moving sidewalks. We had the best time on them....we'd job, walk backwards, etc. I know, it's hard to imagine my family acting such a way but we did.

The pictures of Skip and the backsack are cracking me up. Poor man wasn't sure exactly how to carry it.

I am loving all of the pictures you took while walking into the park. I had forgotten how cool the park was.

Dis is acting crazy for me too. Sometimes I post and it just sits there and thinks about it for 10 minutes.
I thought of Ben Stiller too. Thanks goodness she got it out of her system at home.
There was a little boy walking the wrong way on the moving walkway...on purpose. It looked funny. I can't imagine you guys would do anything like that.
It is really a great park. And to see it with fresh eyes was great. I love Disney, but I think I overlook some stuff because I am so familiar with it.

Don't worry. I am so behind on so many TR's right now too. Today was one of those days that I just had so much to do and it must be the day that everyone is posting because I now have about 120 emails in my inbox.

How amazing that you will be published like that. Your pictures are amazing though... so it isn't a huge surprise that someone has taken note of it "officially"
