You'll have your own table. No problem. You can sort of see in the back section of that picture some of the single tables.
We've never been seated with other parties - other than who we were already with - at 'Ohana, either. I hate for you to miss out on such good meals because of misinformation. At Teppan Edo and Biergarten, you would run into the 'strangers' situation, though, if you are not familiar with them.

Boma is a wonderful experience. The desserts bar is one of the best around, I think. The roast was so good, so next time we go back, I have to be sure it's roast night. I think they have it 2-3 nights a week.

Oh good! Thanks....definitely keeping the reservation. Very excited to try some of the yummy offerings there. Unfortunately, we won't be able to take full advantage of the dessert bar because we also have the Wishes Dessert party booked that night. But we have 4 hours in between them...so maybe a Zebra Dome or two Thanks for the info.

Yes as MeMom said you have your own table. I am not big on sitting with strangers either. This time we were sitting way in the back near the windows. Granted some of the tables are close together but still your own. Oh do keep the ADR. It is so good. One of my favorites if not THE favorite. And yes you do need to have at least one Zebra Dome. SOOO good!!

Oh & we have eaten at O'hana before & also had our own table.

I love this dress!

Wouldn't it be nice to have an AKL room for a good, hard Disney nap while it was doing all that raining?

Yeah did you see Cody sitting there on the couch? I think he could have used a nap about then.

Oh I think Boma is my favorite of all. ALL four of us just absolutely LOVE it there. To think I did not care to eat there on our first few trips because I thought I would not like the food. Boy was I wrong.!!! I am glad I read some reviews & tried it. It is a must do on trips now. I think we get our $$$ worth with the boys eating plenty!! And I have been known to eat my fair share.

Isn't that dress adorable. I just thought it was so cute.

Wonderful AK update! Love the EE photos, the giraffes, and eating ice cream for lunch!

Congratulations to Cody for his awards! That's awesome!

I love this shirt I need to get it on my next visit to AK.

You did a fantastic job taking fun pictures. They make me miss Disney even more. The tigers are fun to watch.

Great news about Cody. I know you must be proud.

Thanks Jackie. I seem to take double the pics at AK than I do at any other park. All those amazing animals.

Thanks. We are hoping for no rain tomorrow but we have been having rain & heavy downpours for over a week now. They are saying mostly sun but chance of thunder showers in the afternoon. If it is nice they have the graduation outside. If not we are all herded into the community center.

Yeah that T shirt was cute. I am only 5 feet so they thought it was very appropriate for me. It was our first full day & I did not want to buy too much too early so I did not buy it.

Oh I could just stand there & watch them for hours. Of course my boys would not like that very much.

I am 5'2, but my sister is shorter, maybe I should get her one also. AK is planned toward the end of our trip.

Well I have the day off today as it is graduation day for Cody!! The weather is iffy as they are saying possible thunder showers in the afternoon & evening. I am keeping fingers (& toes) crossed that we have it outside. I should be cleaning right now as I will have about 25 people walking through my hallway & kitchen getting food tomorrow. I am having my coffee so I thought I would get a little caught up on the Dis.

Cody & I had a go around last night when we could not agree on what he should wear under his graduation gown. Of course he does not want to wear a shirt & tie. I think it would look nice. I have a feeling he is going to wear what he wants.

Also his Iphone which he got for Christmas (not even 6 months ago) is not charging correctly & he went to AT&T yesterday & they said the warranty did NOT cover it. I am so MAD!!! Another $200.00 & not even 6 months.

Anyway I am looking forward to my sister & brother in law coming in from Mass. today & seeing everyone tomorrow.

I hope you all have a great weekend & I will probably post some pics of graduation on Sunday.

Hope you had a wonderful time at graduation.

AT&T made us mad, too, when Chelsea's phone stopped working. She actually did some research and actually found out that HTC (who made her phone) covered the cost of repair. You may want to contact Apple directly and see if the same is true with the iphone.

Have a fun weekend with your family!

Thanks Jackie. I will check it out. I think we are going to try another store in the town next to us. My friend suggested it as it is a bigger store & more of a "head quarters" than the little kiosk at our local mall.

Hi Doreen!! How was Cody's graduation? The graduation at our high school was Friday night too & it got moved inside. Our kindergarteners went to lead the pledge of allegiance. They had to decide by mid-day, even though they didn't know if it would rain or not. We did get a little thunderstorm with some hail around 4:00-4:30 but then it wasn't bad. Zach ended up having his baseball game Friday night without any trouble. I think it was a tough night to predict!

The graduation was outside & we were SO lucky NO rain!! The school called all parents (instant alert) & said it would be outside but to be prepared for rain. I was thrilled it was outside because it was not limited to the number of people that could attend & it is better outside. We sat there watching & listening to the speakers & praying that the rain would hold off & it did!!
When we got home we had thunder, lightening & rain but we were home already.

Saturday was beautiful & the party was great!! Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves & Cody made out like a bandit.

Wow you got hail??? We did not get anything until about 9:30 that night when we were back home. We were very lucky. I kept looking at the clouds rolling in all afternoon & kept telling the sun to fight. Well it did because the sun came out a few times during the ceremony. Right when the ceremony started it came out.
In some of the pics I took the sky looked very scary!!

We had a great few days!

I will try to get some pics up.

Ok Here we go..........

A gown ready to be worn



The handsome graduate



With Grandma (my MIL)



With his girlfriend Savanna



DH, big brother Ryan & myself



My sis & brother in law



That is my rose tree in the background that everyone LOVED when they saw it



Continued in next post
