Great Everest pics! Love the views - some I've never noticed, like Epcot. I can't wait to check out these new discoveries. I feel like we never quite do AK right.

Great Everest shots! I love the view from up there too, it's so cool being able to see all the big landmarks!

I think it's one of the reasons DS15 doesn't like it- he's afraid of heights.
I love Everest, too. That was my second ride of the day, and for some of the boys, their third.

I love the views, both of the park and the EPCOT resort area off in the distance. Another place you get a similar views is at Blizzard Beach. But there are issues with heights at Summit Plummet and the family ride, too.

Definitely a mood lifter.

Can't wait to see your pictures.

Rain. Boo!!!
Thanks! I was pleased with the ride photos I took on this trip. I did feel much better for the rest of the afternoon.

Ah, the rain. Of course, everyone knows how prepared I am and afterall, I had grabbed my raincoat for the trip as I was on the way out the door at home. So what could go wrong???

Love the pics from Everest!!! Awesome!

I would be absolutely appalled if I learned either of my sons had done something like that, and refused to take responsibility or apologize. I don't think I would have lost it if he had just said "Sorry"

Thanks! I can't believe how many pictures I took on the ride. Plus I had taken some earlier in the day. But for this ride my co-chaperone and I were in the front of the train, so we got great views.

It definitely looks like rain.
Well, it was just the movie Yeti. I haven't been able to catch disco Betti in a photo. I can barely even see her when we go by.

Swish! I love it! Much better than the Swalphin.

Do you know that I actually have some EE pictures that I haven't edited yet? I just I better get moving.
Oh, I am so excited to see your Everest photos!!! Hope we see them before your trip.

Thanks! Does anyone know if there are two different tracks for the ride or do all of the trains go the same route? Sometimes it feels different to me. I don't think I have seen the EPCOT area on all of the rides I have done.

Thank you! The Tree of Life doesn't look so big from up there, does it???

Finally caught up after my trip......I need to put a memo out to everyone to stop posting while I am away as it takes 2 weeks to catch up.

I understand the crying...Sometimes something little will just set you off. There is a lot of stress at Disney too...and being a chaperon must make it pretty hard. I get that way with my family too. My son would've probably have done the same thing too, but I don't think he would've said he was sorry.
I hope the rest goes more smoothly.

Beautiful shots from Everest and from flame tree....which I have never eaten at either...nor this tamu place you speak of.....I never even heard of it.

I hear you! No worries on getting behind! I totally get it!

I can't wait to hear about your trip when you get a chance.

I was pleased with my son's comforting reaction. It made up for the rude boy!

Loved taking the pictures on Everest! You haven't been to Flame Tree? That's funny that you haven't heard from Tamu Tamu. So many people don't know it exist- I even nickname it the Restaurant that Guests Forgot (or Never Knew Was There)

It is in Africa on the corner of the paths that lead to Kilamanjaro Safari and the path to Asia. Kind of across the path from Tusker House.

Life Update

I don't want to spread sadness on everyone else's reports, but I do want to let you know that my mom passed away Tuesday morning.

She has been ill for several months, but has suffered for years. It is a relief to know she is no longer mentally or physically in pain. I pray that she has finally found the peace of mind she has wanted throughout her lifetime.

My heart and admiration go out to my dad for his devotion throughout the years. I am doing fine, and more importantly, he is too.

I'll catch up with everyone when I can!

Hugs!

Dee

Dee,

I am so very sorry to hear about your mother's passing. As you said, you know that's she's finally at peace and not suffering any more. I will pray that you, your dad and your entire family find the strength to get through this tough time.

Many hugs to you!

I did start my new TR...and forgive me, but I can't remember if you have popped over there or not. It's the gray link in my signature.

I might have to look for that place in Nov.

Dee, just wanted to repeat how sorry we were to hear about your mom. We've prayed for you over the past couple days, and our family sends your family a giant hug. It sounds like your dad is as strong as you are.
