I'm here Amy!

I have been MIA for a while and had no idea that you were back at the BC. So exciting. I love all your pictures. I want to stay there soooo bad.

How neat that you met Doreen and you guys were so close.

Can't wait to read more.

Hi Erika! Yes - it was a very crazy couple of days before we left with the last minute resort switch! It was so great to meet Doreen!

The title

Before I post the next update, I thought I'd explain the title. I'm afraid I might forget to tell about all of the parts as I go through the TR so here it is...

The bumps and bruises were all mine! The first one happened on one of the first few wet days. I think it was at MK on our second day. I was wearing flip flops and my feet were squishing around a bit. I was trying to put something in the backpack, which was on Tim's back. I stepped on the back of his shoe and broke my big toenail. The next happened when I walked into a chair in our villa when I was coming off the balcony. I got a big black & blue on my thigh. (I moved the chair after that.) Next was the best one of all... I was at the pool at Vistana and it was one of the first hot days. I took a ride down the waterslide and on my way back to my lounge chair, I realized how hot the ground was. My feet were burning to I jumped up on the lounge chair... and my leg went right through the slits in the vinyl! The lifeguard saw me and asked if I was OK. My ankle hurt but I was mostly embarassed! I had a big bruise on the ouside of my ankle. The last one was a bruise to my hip when I got onto TSM on our last day. I am a bit accident-prone but that was even a lot for me! Luckily none of the injuries were serious.

As for the teenagers, the World was invaded by school groups on our last few days. We had dance & cheer teams there for a competition. There were also school bands there and a ton of school trips - field trips, senior trips, and any other type of teen group you can imagine. They seemed to have arrived on Thursday or Friday 4/26 or 4/27. They weren't there on Wednesday, we were at Typhoon Lagoon on Thursday and when we returned to the parks on Friday, they were EVERYWHERE! Every ride we went on had a group of crazy teenagers. They were well behaved but even well behaved high school girls are loud on Tower of Terror & Kali River Rapids! Squeeeeeeeeeellllllll!!! I was just ready to be done with all of them by the time we left.

I am going to save the last part of the title (swimming with sharks) for the TR. I definitely won't forget to tell that story because it was one of the major things that happened at Typhoon Lagoon. Obviously someone swam with sharks but you'll have to wait to hear the rest.

I hope to have Day 2 started sometime this weekend.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!

I know what you mean about school groups! We actually saw my DH's friend's son march right before the MSEP one night we were there. They are from RI. I was so excited for them.
I marched in a parade at Sea World my junior yr. of H.S. I wish it would have been the parade at MK!

Those are some unique 'souvenirs' to bring home from a Disney trip. Ouch!

I have to admit - I laughed at the foot through the chair thing. I mean, I am sorry you got hurt, but the picture in my mind was a little funny.

Thanks for the explanation of the title-

I guessed the swimming with sharks part.

I thought the bumps and bruises might also be TL- the wave pool is notorious! (and fun)

And the teenagers. I have no comment. Just compassion and empathy. I will be with one of those groups in a few short weeks. In the past, our group has always been complimented for good behaviour so I am hoping this is not the year that changes.

I am so sorry about all of your bumps and bruises. Glad none of them hindered your vacation plans!

I had no idea so many high school groups take trips to WDW. I work in a K-12 school and even well-behaved teens are teens!

Can't wait to hear about the sharks!

YIKES on all those bumps and bruises Amy. Glad nothing was too serious though.
I know all about mobs of teenagers, glad they were well behaved.
Can't wait to read about the swimming with sharks, though I really need to make sure Joey isn't in the room or he'll freak

Hope you have a wonderful Mothers Day you deserve it, you are such a great mom.

Oh My Amy! That IS a lot of bumps and bruises and I was certain you were talking about the boys. Oh well, at least you didn't break any ankle.

Ughhhhh to high school and middle school groups. You know how I feel about school kids when I am playing tourist.

Oh man! That is a lot of bumps and bruises for one trip!! Glad to hear none of it was serious.

I've been there when the teens invade - and it can be overwhelming, I agree!

Oh my Amy I guess you are accident prone. That cement around the pool does get so hot though. Sometimes I am almost running back to my chair because my feet are burning!!

How fun that you got to be in a parade at Sea World!

The chair thing was the funniest! As soon as I did it, I was looking around to see who witnessed my stupidity!

Believe it or not, we didn't make it to the wave pool! But I've heard stories about how bad it is!

Good luck with the teenagers!

I can't believe how many schools take trips to Disney either... they are SOOOOO lucky!

I'll be sure to give a shark warning before I post pictures!

I had a nice mother's day - I hope you did too!

It would be a logical conclusion that I'd be talking about the boys! But no, it was me!

The groups were a bit crazy!

No serious injuries... just a few bruises to bring home as souvenirs!

Overwhelming is a perfect word to describe the teen groups.

It was sooo hot! Running back to the chair & sitting down would have been a better solution though!
