Strollers are not my area of expertise... alas I have no kids. But when I was a kid my dad always made us kids walk everywhere. I don't remember complaining much about walking. It was more complaining about "eww I have to ride with HER!?" HAHA

Hi Erin!

Just checking up on you!

Have been busy checking out different things to surprise the DD with when we get over there! I am going to cotact the Dream makers and have a surprise waiting when we arrive!

A bit bummed at the moment as the airfare prices keep going down in cost Australia to the USA. Also, not too sure if I will be staying at the Carousel at the end of the holiday as am I none too keen on what I call a "walk up" motel. I like the Ho Jo for the security and having a whole building with corridors inside, rather than one that the door opens straight to the outside world. I will do a tad more investigating to see how I go!!!

Hope things are well on your side of the world. Just started our winter here and is a bit on the chilly side!!!

Just seem to be going through the motions now.........get up, go to work, get up, go to work......etc etc........this trip can't come fast enough! I think when I can actually book and confirm some ADR's things will start to move a bit quicker. Oh, and when our dates becme visible on the Disneyland calendar!!!

Thanks for checking in! I have been slacking a bit this week!

Actually it has been a rough couple of weeks on May 19th one of my fellow officers with the cadets went out fishing with a buddy and did not return home. They recover them last monday, and the funeral is tomorrow. It was a hard week, as I have been though this with a close family friend and to have the reminder, was not the best way to spend the week.

However not they have been found and there is some closure for the family. Thoughts and prayers are with them each and every day as the recover from this blow.

Also my Mom has been here for the last week. She had a week off chemo, and spent the time here. It was good visiting with her, I sure do miss her when she is gone. Its hard being so far from her, only a short time till the boys are out of school and I can spend a few weeks down with her.

It is my sons birthday next week, and he asked to have a Water gun Party, thankfully the weather was great and the kids had a great time, so did Chad and I!

Heres some shots from the party.

The Cake! Man this was my first attempt in a very long time, it turned out, thank goodness!

Birthday Boy!


Chad gets in on the Action


C watching from a safe distance

I'm glad you got to spend some time with your mom. I know how precious that time is.

The party looked great! Everyone looks like they are having so much fun.

Tomorrow is going to be a really sad day for you guys. I think there was something in the air, because, as you know, two guys went missing in my area too around the same time. It's been really depressing around here recently. Last week, I think, a 20 year old was killed on his motorcycle (the other driver ran a stop sign). An old, loving customer (who was mentally challenged) of mine passed. And I think there were two couples who lost their babies.

Keep your head up though! I'm working really hard to pull myself out of the gutter I've fallen into since my dad died.

It was a great time! At the end, Chad came after me and soaked me, then I grabbed a gun and we went out together and got the kids after we soaked each other of course! E was trying to be on dads side and gang up on me... till we turned, chad held him while I grabbed the bucket we used as a refill station, and over the head it went!

Look.... I have a second ticker!!!!!!

A highschool friend and I are looking at going now to see the Christmas lights! I really hope we are able to do it, I have a babysitter in place now, just watching prices. They are pretty much as high as they usually go for flights, I am hoping that there will be a seat sale soon!

Other then that, this is all that is new. Busy week again for Cadets, we have our Annual Parade and inspection, so we have been working on that, I joined a hip hop class, so I have been doing that on Wednesdays (so much fun! Wish I danced as a child!).

Chad leaves in July for the month for work, so I will be a single parent for 1 full month during the summer...YIKES!

OK after a trip into Edmonton today, I am freaking a little about C and how he is going to do.... terrible 2's have really hit and I am thinking this will be a hard trip to take. No clue.

On a happy note we found a stroller in a garage sale that is perfect for the trip, its a graco one that is used for all the different ages, so we bought it. now we need to find a carseat (or at least I will check ours) to see what will be accepted on the plane. We will need to strap him down to keep him from going crazy on the plane!

Hi

Just popping in before I leave for work...........eww, I would rather stay home and stalk the boards all day!!!

I don't envy you re the terrible two's. I am sure you will come up with loads of things to keep him buy on the plane! How long is your flight? Ours is around 13 - 14 hours from Sydney to LA! Such a long time to be up in the air, but so worth the trouble!!!

I am even more excited about going now as Cars Land truly looks absolutely fantasmagorical!!!!!

And, I have been looking around for a while and will be purchasing a new DSLR camera to take with me so there will some amazing pics to post! I used to work as a photographer ( many moons ago ), but got a tad lazy when all the fabulous easy point and shoot cameras came out. So, because we have a fair bit of time before we go to brush up on my techniques, and we have 16 glorious days in the parks, I should think I will be back to full swing in no time at all with some amazing pics! I will be especially happy to get some decent shots of parades, Fantasmic and World of Colour, oh and the fireworks!!!

Glad to hear you found the perfect stroller!!!

Have a great day

So a lot has happened over the last few weeks. I was looking into becoming a travel agent a few months ago, and was talking to a few agencies around here, then one had asked me to come in and see her in person. One thing has lead to another, and I am currently doing courses, learning about the ins and outs of different places, then in September I will hopefully be working Part time for them. I am so excited! Today I started my Disney course, so we will see how that goes. The DLR and WDW portion was easy (thanks to a lot I learned on here!) and now I am into the DCL side.

I am at the 100 day post, so double digit dance for me tomorrow! I can hardly wait, I will be sure to do some crazy silly dance that my kids just roll their eyes over!

There's something fishy going on here... if we are going the same day, why does my countdown (my my cell) say 99 days? And your ticker says 100 days?

Not to much happening ehre. We are still trying to decide if we are going to do the Halloween party, I would like to but that will mean a extremly long day for us since I am planning breakfast at the plaza inn. But it would be a great bday present for E.

Its super hot here right now, hotter then in DL! Weird, we have been matching WDW temps this week with the temp and humidity, wish I was at WDW then maybe I would have some AC.

Oh well we will make it through, L has the flu, E had it earlier in the week and I am sure that the heat is not helping anyone. L is currently dosed up on Tylenol to bring down the fever and help with the body aches, sitting in front of the fan and eating freezies and drinking juice! I think I should go join him!
