Finally getting caught up! I so want to go up in Characters in Flight. It looked like you had a great time!

We were at WPE once and didn't like it at all. Wondering if we need to try it again?

Spent the last couple of days cross-border shopping with the girls. Had lots of fun and thought of you

Bought a few more things for our Mickey bathroom...
That's so funny because when my salad came out Shanleigh was eyeing it up and my picky eater finally agreed to try a bite and loved it!

Thought of you last week end when Shanleigh and I headed down....had such a great time altho coming back the border was crazy!

That picture of Shanleigh is lovely!!!
That sounds like a great plan to both of us

Thanks Debby, it's the one I have on my desk at work...I love it!

Looks like a great night at DTD
They freaked Shan out this time too because they were so agressive...yes, Jeff is one of a kind

You got that right Kathy! It's frustrating to say the least!

So glad you're following along! I think that's a great reason to go back....I see you, like me, can justify anything

Shanleigh and I were talking about you guys yesterday as we were looking back on our pictures from 2 years ago when we met you guys in the World. Where has 2 years gone. She was saying now that the weather is starting to change it makes her wish we were going in September again!

Hey sweets...miss youtoo!

She is settling in just fine....first 2 assignments 100%, did I mention she's a smarty pants! So proud of her! She was worried that maybe she wouldn't do as well as she did in high school but so far so good!!

Hi Queen,

I just wanted to say that I can't wait to see more updates when life gets less hectic, although I probably won't be checking in to see them again until we get back at the end of the month.

Way to go Shanleigh...those are awesome marks and she should be really proud!

Hope all is well with you guys and looking forward to reading more later

Hey Queen! Been reading your reports for a while now (BTW - that was one MASSIVE spider ), but not sure if I've ever commented.

I love reading your reports, because it's so nice to get a fellow Canadian's perspective. Also, you and Jasmine/Shan seem to have so much fun together!

I do have a question for you. I see that you use packing cubes - how helpful did you find them? Did they save space? Do you pack them by outfit (i.e. Monday's outfit in cube A, Tuesday's in cube B) or by item (tops in one, bottoms in another)?

Okay - so maybe I had more than one question....I've been thinking about getting them for a while now, and really wanted to know how useful people find them to be.

Oh, also - WOW to the redo at Winnipeg airport! It's been a few years since I've been there (I think the last time was 2006 or 2007), and what a change!

I can't believe I have fallen so far behind on this TR! I kept thinking "I have some holidays coming up in October/November, I'll get caught up then" but that is just too far away so I thought I better get a post done before our very busy day starts!

This lovely morning would be taking us to AK! Not our favourite park but we do enjoy it! If we do nothing but FOTLK there I am a happy girl but Shanleigh had other plans!

We decided to take a different route to the food court and look who we ran into!

When my parents went with my sister and her family in 2004 this is the building they all stayed in...I could just picture my mum by the big wheel and it brought a smile to my face!

Shanleigh and I were going to be coming to spend some time at this pool before the end of our vacation....or at least that was the plan!

This says it all!

We went in and had some breakfast and then headed out to the bus! It was such a gorgeous morning and we couldn't help but think how hot it would eventually get at AK so we better get to it! Crowds, once again, weren't bad at all!

Let The Memories Begin....how true is this! When I think back on all of our many trips (yes, we are truly blessed) watching my daughter grow up in our pictures from the World, made me a little misty this morning!

Had to grab a picture with the Tree of Life but didn't have time to wait for a PP...grab one shot and run!

Ok, so I lied...maybe two shots!

Yak and Yeti...we'll be back at noon for our ADR and we couldn't wait! We hadn't eaten here since 2008 or 2009....either way, it had been a while!

I loved the look of this little cart!

I'm sure you have figured out by now where we were off too....that's right, EE!

After a great ride we decided we should head over to KS...this would be such a mistake! Never, in all the years that we'd come to this park have we ever waited to do this adventure! Today, start to finish, almost 2 hours....it was brutal. The only saving grace was a lovely couple we met in line with their two boys. We chatted the whole time, saw pictures of their brand new home they had just bought and just enjoyed each other's company. I never did find out what the hold up was but we did get stopped for 25 minutes while on safari waiting for some rhino's to move off the road! I took no pictures of the safari, just chose to enjoy it!
We were trying to decide what to do after and it was then that I remembered my friend Mary Ellen (MEK) posting pictures about Flights of Wonder...yup, never have seen it so we headed over! Thank you so much Mary Ellen, it was such a great show!

Isn't he gorgeous....the bird, people, the bird!

Shanleigh thought of Jeff while we were here and how he would be flailing away with the birds flying overhead....it was then that we decided on our next trip we would arrive early and sit right where all the birds fly over just to watch Jeff!

When FoW was finished it was time to head for Yak and Yeti for our noon ADR! We checked in and waited to be called! It was far busier than the last time we vistited but it was such a nice break to get in out of the heat so I was happy I decided on noon and not 5!

What I sat beside while we waited!

The menu!

We both decided to have the same thing....Shrimp Lo Mein....oh my word was it delicious, but we could definitely have easily split this...way too much food!

After our lunch it was time to head over to my favourite attraction (which I've heard rumours could be leaving ) FOLTK. I never take my camera out here, I just sit and watch and sing at the top of my lungs, much to Shanleigh's embarrassment

I will leave you here and hopefully see you before next weekend with another post! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

OMG an update!

We've been to Flight of Wonder a couple of times, it is a great show. Same with Yak & Yeti, great food. Been there a couple of times as well (or as Declan thinks, just once).

Nice picture on Facebook the other day. Always nice to get a picture with an Olympic medal.

So happy to see an update Queen! I've been missing your TR!

I can't believe that you had to wait 2 hours for KS We've never waited either. I wonder what the heck was going on.

I'm glad that you enjoyed your lunch at Y&Y! We really liked our meals there last trip.

If you guys take Jeff to FoW, will you please post video?

Glad you did FoW.........I will NEVER do it!

I have a fear of birds that is horrible! Ever since I watched Hitchcocks "The Birds" when I was little! Between the biting beaks, the TALONS and the poop I am totally, not a bird person!
