Hi Kathy, I am so sorry your brother is in the hospital and they can't figure out what is going on. So stressful for you guys and I am praying he gets better very soon!

I LOVE the tee shirt slogan/idea! You guys are going to have so much fun, and I am so impressed you and Nicki haven't spilled the beans.

I know you are bummed the trip is winding down, but know you'll make the most of your last couple of days.

I'll be praying for Mark and all of you on Monday, its ironic, my mom died right before one of our Disney trips and we came home two days before her memorial. So happy that you all had this time, you both surely deserved it!

Take care my friend and love the pics!

Kathy: Sounds like you are having a wonderful time with great friends! Sorry you have to to deal with unpleasant matters when you return. I hope they find answers to what ails your brother soon so you can have one less worry in life. Hopefully your time in FL is medicinal!

I love that picture of you and Nicki. So cute.

Your dinner plans all sound great. Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
Thanks; one thing I've decided is if we move here, I'm cutting my hair really short.

Doesn't she look great?

Hope they get their act together soon.

Hope you have a great rest of your stay and a safe trip home! Can't wait for the TR
I've found better things at the little shell shop on Marco...they may be a little expensive here, but at least they had more to choose from with shells (frames, ornaments, etc). I asked for a box to put the one frame I found in and she said they didn't have any.

Just checked the weather..40% chance of rain tomorrow and 50% chance on Friday. We might be driving 45 minutes and going to the casino if it rains all day.

Yes, an August trip is being planned with very special friends.

Thanks, Amy. It's been hard to "relax" on vacation knowing all that is going on at home, but we have tired. And Nicki and Toddleduck have made it much easier.

Thanks, Brenda. We've had a good time despite worrying about things. It is so good for us to have this time with Nicki and Todd.

The weather could not have been more perfect today. We spent a couple of hours at the beach and then I spent about an hour at the pool (didn't want to fry); Mark stayed down while I started some packing.

Tonight is dinner at the Crazy Flamingo (what do you expect with Nicki and I). Tomorrow is pool day, finishing packing and our last dinner with Todd and Nicki at Da Ru Ma...our traditional last meal of the trip.

We'll be sorry to go, but I'm looking forward to seeing our Cookie dog.

Kathy, I saw your picture on facebook of you lounging in the pool and wished I was there with you!

Dan and I always say that if it weren't for our two dogs, we'd have zero desire to ever return home from Flordia! I am sure Cookie is ready to see you.

Todd and Nicki are good friends indeed to help you to enoy this much deserved trip! And your surprise trip is coming up!

28 days from right now, I'll be checking into CSR! The kids still think we are going to Pop and I can hardly stand the excitement!

Our Last Day

It's our last day in paradise. We had a great dinner at a little local bar last night (below is a picture of Nicki and I).

We are hanging at the pool all day, lunch at Porky's Last Stand maybe, and then pool and packing. The highlight will be our dinner tonight and saying goodbye to friends. And being sure Mark doesn't have any clue that it won't be 7 months, but a mere 69 days before we see our besties again.



I hope you've all enjoyed the live updates.

Enjoy your last night. I don't know how you managed to keep your return trip a surprise all this time. Thank goodness he doesn't DIS!

Goodbye night

Since I won't get my TR started right away and since I was able to upload a picture, I thought I'd share one last photo with you before we head home tomorrow.

We had a wonderful dinner and then, of course, went to Starbucks (I'm not saying if we cried or not). Me and my little sis:

I'm sure there's a little bit of truth in both those statements!

Sounds like a wonderful last day. More cute pictures of you two besties!
