I don't know if you've ever considered seeing a chirorpractor for your PF but Evan's cross country coach suggested it last year and that plus PT really helped him a lot.

And good inserts which I make him wear with EVERYTHING. If he wears shoes for too long without them, it flares up.

I took a really nasty trip and fall today while out running. Not sure why, but I decided to run on the side walk in a development that I don't normally run in. I was looking straight ahead and totally missed this ridge between the sidewalk and the driveway. I literally did a face plant. I literally left the skin of my knuckles on the sidewalk. The last thing I feel like doing is marching in a parade 90 minutes away. Ugh! Oh well.

So, If I don't do replies tonight, it will be tomorrow. See Ya!
Hope you're okay.

We totally understand you taking some time to heal up.

Great monkey pictures.

Since I have seen the show so many times. Flash is allowed but no video light. I assume the video light beam is a no-no.

I go no flash too because throwing light from where we sit usually does no good anyway.



Just at FOLK alone.
Much agreed, Pat.

Cynthia is right about the PF and good inserts, as soon as I got mine and did specific stretches for a few months I was right as rain again. As long as I stretch my calves and wear shoes that support well I don't have any issues with the PF. Haven't for years, thank you Lord!!

Sounds like the day at AK is starting off nicely.
I'm glad to know you and your brother usually get along, being stretched out of one's comfort zone is always a good thing, painful, but good in the end.

I'm surprised that the flash doesn't bother them, but maybe all the seating is at a safe distance. Good to know the rules. I really tried to pay attention to that stuff this trip.

Plus I find that a flash makes everything harsh and less alive and there is no way to edit that out.

That's exactly how I felt, but after an ample quantity of Motrin I was OK. I actually don't mind the state fair once I get there. It's the getting there that I hate. Long. Boring. Too many lights. You get the picture!

I bet they loved that. They do sound like an awesome purchase. We bought one once, but it got a hole in it after a couple uses. I guess it wan't a very good one. Probably should have tried to take it back or write a letter to the company. I guess I kept thinking Denny would fix it. Silly me!

I was 25 pages behind, Mary Ellen!!! I "think" I am all caught up now, though.

As always, I am in love with all of your pictures! Those pictures from your approach to the MK on the ferry made me feel like I was right there! Glad you were able to get at least one group pic when everyone was still smiling.

Your first night was eerily similar to ours -- dinner at CHH, riding Haunted Mansion...yep and yep.

Definitely agree that It's a Small World is a must for first-timers. We didn't ride it this trip -- Charles told us to walk quickly past it so he wouldn't hear the music. LOL.

I can't wait until the Beast's Castle and the rest of Fantasyland is open. So excited!!!

Yep to Pirates to escape the storm, too.

Ugh to the brother's meltdown. In fact, double ugh! So not cool!!!

And another ugh to the bus snafu, but yeay to a lovely afternoon at the pool and getting to use your FPs for Splash. I have a real problem with the new FP enforcement, but I will wait to rant about that on my TR. I can't believe your SIL up and left RIGHT before the MSEP! Shaking my head. So thrilled you were finally able to see it, and that you loved it!

I am seething over Matt's comment and Denny throwing you under the bus. I would have forgotten Denny's coffee mug, too. It's too bad you couldn't just say, "Sorry, Matt, you are sleeping in the LIVING room. Have your mom buy you some ear plugs."

You are reminding me only too well why we don't travel with family anymore.

Playing catch up again! I know everyone else has said this, but I cannot believe you SIL got up and left right before the parade! No wonder they didn't have any fun, it's like they tried their hardest not too

I would have been upset by the 10 year old telling me to be quiet in the room I was paying for as well......

You got some really great photos from FoTLK

Love all of your FotLK photos! I really hope we get to see this show with DS in October since we missed out on it last time. It is one of our favorites! Those tumbling monkeys are amazing. It feels like a mini Cirque du Soleil show in the middle of a Disney park with awesome Lion King music!

I hope the cookie toss is more literal than what I am thinking of. Please let it be some chocolate chip cookies being thrown in the air and not the other thing!

Your FoTLK photos are amazing. A personal favorite show of mine, and your pictures reminded me of why I think it's highly entertaining.


Hmm, having to hide out in your room to make coffee and get ready for your morning run does not sound like the best thing to have to go through. And, I agree, there's no way I'd fall into the trap of waking up other people's kids...


A coaster ride first thing in the morning is a great way to start a park day. Especially when you need an extra pick-me up.



I'm curious, yet also slightly nervous to see what your update title entails...

I actually felt better when I was marching and, surprisingly, I didn't feel horrible today. Although I am still a little stiff. I play the piccolo. I am actually much better at playing the flute, but it doesn't work well for marching.

Made it time for us to go, but we saw the higher fireworks walking to the bus stop.
That must have been a great experience. It really is a mesmerizing parade, even for the little folks. Ugh - I can't imagine crowds like that. Yuck. Leaving sounds like it was the right thing to do.

Ohhhh - that sounds bad. This was just weird. I was looking ahead towards the intersection and this wasn't an obvious flaw in the sidewalk/driveway junction and *POW* I was airborne. I think I hit the sidewalk and actually bounced up and down again.

I actually hadn't thought about bag balm, but that's a great idea. That stuff it pretty amazing. The march did go OK, especially after a little motrin.

I hope your SIL & the boys get another chance.
I can't believe they ditched that close either and I'm sure they did because they didn't think it would be anything special. They will regret it if they ever get to see the parade again. I hope they do get the chance.

We sat right at the very end of the parade route across from Pecos Bill. We were right on the end of the path. To my right was the path that runs in front of Splash Mountain. It was a great spot, mostly because everyone stayed seated.

The first hour at AK was very stress free. Yes, they met us at the tree of life and we all went in to FOTLK together. So two days in a row they arrived at the park at 10:10!

I was good at the parade. I was pretty stiff today, but managed. I could have gotten hurt a lot worse and, the way my wrist hurts, I'm lucky I didn't break it!

So happy marching went well and that you felt ok today!!:

Since you have so many fantastic pictures, do you think you could show us one of you marching? I think that is the coolest!! My daughter was in a marching band in school, it was a blast to see them perform!

Wow - can't believe Evan has PF. What a drag. I never thought about a chiropracter for PF, but I have considered it for my neck. I have a foot brace that I am using (actually two) and it provides really good arch support. But, yes, I need a pair of mom-mom shoes with arch support. I also ice it with frozen peas and if I message it, that helps. It's pretty good right now.

I guess I probably should look into inserts. I like my brace, but an insert may be more efficient. I agree that stretching helps too. I probably really just need to stop running for a little bit.

So far. So good. And, YES, being pushed out on one's comfort zone can be painful, but it is also so necessary. I think it had made my brother much more open to traveling in the future and that is definitely a good thing.

I still can't believe my SIL left then either. It was crazy.

How long is FOTLK? We have never been and I think that it sounds super fun! Our days are pretty regimented with ADRs but I would like to find a time to fit this in this trip.

I think all the bright lights overhead make anything other than a direct light beam okay.

Sounds like something I would do. Complete with bounce.


Most embarrassing was when the neighbor's dog ran out of their garage and I tried to keep running. Dog got right in my path and well I basically tripped over the dog. I aimed for the lawn to roll out on because I did not want to land on the dog ( A golden retriever)
My neighbor was out watching the whole thing so I was a bit embarrassed but he was too.

Grace I tell you.


I have had PF too and roll your foot out on a tennis ball. Worked for me big time.

Judging by pictures the show runs about 30 minutes. Add a bit to get down there and the wait to get in and your whole time not doing something else can be up to an hour. This summer there was a show every hour on the hour.

I also ice it with frozen peas and if I message it, that helps. It's pretty good right now.

Thanks! I am feeling pretty good today. Not perfect, but far from terrible. I do want to start running again, but I'm a little nervous.
Not sure about the mom mom shoes lol! Evans pt. has him using hard orthotics, not the soft comfy kind and then we supplement with heel cups and have him put them in any and every shoe. Stretching, ice and a foam roller does wonders. I'm amazed you can run, when his flares up he gets sidelined for at least a week. They even suggested a hard soled house slipper as being barefoot doesn't help

I don't know what was up with that. I think she must have thought that the parade would be no big deal. Who knows, maybe she was the one who wanted to leave. I will never know!

It was such an odd, unexpected moment. I know he was encouraged by Nick, but it totally came out of left field. I mean, people get up on vacation when the sun comes up if they want to get up and going. It's just what kids do.

Your description is right on. I feel the same way. If you like FOTLK then you are going to love Cirque. They really are all amazing - tumble monkeys, the other acrobats, and the singers. Love it!

So glad you like the pics!

Well, you're a nurse, so lets just say that its the type of cookie toss that you are used to dealing with.

Thank you! It really is an entertaining show and I enjoy looking at my own pictures because it brings back the memories of the show. I can never take all that activity in at once, so seeing the pictures gives me little slices of the action.

It really wasn't the way I wanted to spend the morning. I basically knew he would need to get himself tired enough so that no noise bothered him. I think that happened fairly quickly and he never did complain again.

It is such an awesome adrenaline rush. Sometimes in Disney I wake up still tired and it takes me a little while to get going. A coaster works every time!

Thanks! I hope it goes as well tomorrow. It's actually all the open cuts on my hands that are starting to hurt now. Not a surprise though. Ouch!

Our uniforms are actually quite boring because we are with a fire company. I actually don't have any pictures of us marching, but maybe I can get some tomorrow when I go back down to the state fair. I have always wanted to take pictures of the band, but I never can because I'm part of it. We did march in the inaugural parade because Joe Biden is from Delaware. It was an interesting experience.

I'd say 30 - 35 minutes. Add time for arrival and leaving. It gets crowded back there. Its a fun show. I hope you can fit it in!

My neighbor was out watching the whole thing so I was a bit embarrassed but he was too.

Grace I tell you.
Great story! Thanks for making me LOL! Now I don't feel quite as clumsy! The only thing that makes me not feel like a complete klutz is when a girl who say me fall told me she has tripped in the exact same spot.

That's a great idea. Thanks!

Sometimes they are on the half hour so check the schedule.
In June the first show started at 1030. I guess that's a pretty common start time with Nemo starting at 11.

Wowsa. That boy has it bad. So glad to hear that the orthotics work for him. Mine is clearly not that bad, although about 20 years ago I got it so bad I could not walk AT all. It was the most painful thing ever and I had to stop running. I could only ride my bike. I got this little running brace when I finally could start again and I never had it flare until now.
