I did not know about Alex's kidney stones. Wow! I have been hearing about younger and younger kids with kidney stones lately. I hope that his meds do lower his calcium level and you get a good report next visit. I hope he also gets used to his meds so they not irritate him as much.

Woo Hoo for the upcoming NYC trip!

Loved this update. I felt like I was taking the walk back to Dumbo with you. Amazing to watch the crowds thin out from Main Street to Dumbo.

Looks like a fun ride on Space Mountain!

You have been busy! Hope things are calmer for you soon, and you can do some Disney planning!

Gorgeous morning at the Magic Kingdom! I do love mornings in the parks! So nice! You got some great pictures in the new Dumbo area!

Maybe I'll see you in October... but the boys won't be with me! My dates are 10/10-10/14 - those are the same dates you'll be there, right?
October 5 - 13, so we will work something out and find a place to cross paths. Sorry we will miss the boys, though.

Nice pictures from Magic Kingdom. The water feature on the Dumbos now really adds to that attraction. We got to experience 'soft opening' of the interactive queue on our trip, and it is fabulous.

Hope you get all the medical issues cleared up completely and quickly for Alex. We do not like our DIS kids going through pain.

Sorry to hear about Alex's kidney stones. I hope he hasn't been too uncomfortable. There's nothing worse than seeing your kids in pain.

What a great start at MK- Looks like a beautiful day, and I hope it stays like that for you.

Love the rope drop show. You got lots of great pictures of it.

I enjoyed the walk over to Dumbo with you. I have never been on Dumbo ( while my Disney fan card is taken away), so I really appreciate seeing the pictures.

Good redneck ride photos- awesome that the words don't cover the boys' faces!

And I would have to say that your pictures in Pooh are not so shabby!

I'm all caught up!!

I'm glad the boys liked Disney Quest! My boys loved it as well. I agree about Cyber Space Mountain!! It was definitely more intense than I expected it to be.

Love early mornings at MK!! The details at Storybook Circus are amazing! We loved it! It looks like a successful morning so far!

Your NYC trip sounds like fun!! I hope you have a great time!!

Man, kidney stones are the worst! I've had 4 and they're no walk in the park. Poor Alex. I hope the meds help and he doesn't have to deal with them his whole life.

Love the pics of the new Dumbo! It looks amazing! Cute pictures looking down on your family from above.

Sounds like a very productive MK morning so far. Hopefully you don't run out of steam to complete your very busy day!

You are one busy mom!

Great update; I know that Mark cannot wait to see the Dumbo area and I sent him one "sneak peek" picture of yours...but I told him he can't see the rest.

You got a lot accomplished in that short amount of time.

I'll keep Alex in my thoughts and prayers, Amy. I hope the medicine helps him. I love your Dumbo pictures! I cannot wait to see and ride it. Looks so bright and colorful!

Amy, I am getting all caught up!

So sorry to hear about Alex. Sure hope he is doing well and medication helps. I hate to see a child in pain.

Your timeshare looks nice. Lots of fun at the pool area!

Never done HDDR. It looks like lots of fun and the food looked great. Glad you had a good time.

Great morning in MK! Loved the new area when we were there.

Hope you have a great time in New York!

It has been super crazy around here as well!!
Can I just tell you that I am beginning to HATE baseball. DS11 was in a couple of allstar tournaments and they are just never ending!!
It's finally over now, well for us anyway. There's another tournament this weekend but we opted out. DS11 was sick of practicing 4X a week (yes 4x!!) when he could be playing. We now know he doesn't LOVE baseball that much.
Live and learn.
Hope Alex is feeling better. I remember you talking about it back before the April trip. I can't believe it took that long to see a specialist. Glad it's not too serious and he'll be ok.
Loved your update- I just LOVE MK! Can't wait to hear about the dessert party. I had to cancel ours the day before b/c the weather was going to be awful. I didn't want to see there in the pouring rain.
Maybe we'll make it next time.

Off to the Big Apple!

Replies later... Sorry I didn't get to another updatae this week! We're leaving for New York City tomorrow!! We have a very busy, fun weekend planned, including a DIS meet on Sunday with KathyRN137!!

I'll be back into Disney planning mode when we get back... we'll be close to 60 days until my October girls trip & in the early stages of planning for the next family trip in April. And of course, I'll be cranking out the rest of the updates to get this TR finished before the October trip.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I have had only a teeny tiny bit of DIS time lately, since school has started back. Glad I got to stop by and visit with you here for a minute before you go to NYC. Cool that you and Kathy get to meet up. You should get in touch with Brookelizabeth, too! She is in NYC.

Have a great trip!!!
