I don't want to go into details as it is rather personal regarding my mom and I'm just too upset about my brother. All I can say is we have TWO great kids and I don't know what we would do without Andy.
Wow Kathy, so sorry to hear there are more issues at home........

........but what great sons you have with Andy stepping up like that, knowing how much you guys need this time away!!!

Obviously Mark raised them right.............

Seriously, you both continue to be in my thoughts and prayers, and now even more with the latest issues with your Mom and Brother!!!

I am so glad that Andy is taking care of things... but still wish they were not going on. I hope everything is ok... and doesn't overshadow your trip.

It is hard to believe that tomorrow is our last day at Disney World. I don't know how the week went so fast.

Tomorrow we are going to the Magic Kingdom and we will leave shortly after our lunch at The Plaza to start our drive to Marco Island. I'm going to try to do individual replies once we are settled in Marco (probably Sunday after Nicki and I shop all day on Saturday).

Until then, here are a few pictures from today:

And I took Mark to a special dinner at Emeril's at CityWalk tonight. The waiter was nice enough to take our picture:
