More yum yums in the lounge. And I agree that a late Boma breakfast is the best.

I have to admit, your mom's shirt IS pretty funny. Probably not the best choice to downplay the bustline.

I thought of you when I saw the lamb. I had remembered you don't like olives so was happy to see you would have found a few things to enjoy. Oooh, got to go over and check out your update.

It was too funny. I really contemplated not posting it, but I really wanted to show the wedding gown. It was the cutest Despicable Me shirt but the way it fitted in the wrong places was just so funny. I don't think she'll be wearing that again

The tea cookies looked so tempting. It sounds like you had a lovely relaxing day even if the weather had other ideas.

It was oddly relaxing sitting underneath the umbrella with the rain coming down. I was as happy as a clam just sitting there enjoying the atmosphere.

We didn't get to tea many times but the cookies were quite delicious.

Hi Pam!

I'm finally catching up with your TR! Better late then never, eh?

Yay on having a quiet flight and returning to AKL - love the shots of the resort!

It's great that R&M got a Savannah view and the pixie dust had already started on arrival

I think the monochrome pics of the animals look quite nice.

A shame that you couldn't get on TSM...hopefully you managed to fit that in later on in the trip.

Mmm, love all the food shots of the CL!

Ha ha at getting to AK around noon...a good job it was near empty! I love your mums posing shots

Your pics of the safari are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Oh no on the park closing at 5 instead of 6, like you thought.

Yay on seeing MK all decorated for the fall. Woohoo on booking BCVs for your June trip!!

A shame about your brother getting worked up over the attention at Pecos Bill but I'm glad he was able to calm himself down and enjoy the rest of the day with you.

It's great seeing the pics of the new Dumbo

I'm all caught up and looking forward to reading more.

If I'm not on here before Christmas have a great day!

Omgosh love your moms shirt!

Ugh, I feel the same way about people not picking up after themselves. It seems like every time we went to find a table to eat our CS at, there was always something left at the table. Bugs the crap outta me! And same thing when we drive down one of our main roads to get to our house. There is always garbage gathered along the median and gutters. Disgusting.

I love that resort, it's definitely my all time favorite. I've enjoyed every resorts I've stayed at but AKL tops the list. And I can never seem to take enough pictures

I was so glad they already had them set with the Savannah View. Pixie dust is just so fabulous!

It was just too funny because I had just got the camera less than a week before the trip and kept wondering, 'why is my brand new camera not picking up colors?' I got quite a chuckle when I realized I had somehow changed the setting. I do like how they turned out.

I know, it was a pretty late start. The crowd levels on this trip were just fabulous. We never would have gotten a third of what we had done since we couldn't get them out earlier...

She was having a good time, kept asking me to take her picture. It was amusing.

I'm excited about BCVs. I'm thinking that trip will be mainly Epcot and waterparks because I'll have the premium annual pass next year. I'm looking forward to new things.

It was just so bizarre. He was like a little boy throwing a tantrum. I'm so glad he was able to calm down. Mom and M were really happy to have him join us for the rest of the day. I couldn't have cared less at that point I was so frustrated with him.

I'm so excited they're doing a Despicable Me 2. I just loved that movie.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Some people are just so lazy it confuses me.

Hi everybody

Sorry I've been MIA lately. I got out the computer to do an update this morning but after getting caught up with all the TRs I'm following its now time for church so will return later.

Some updates on general stuff:

I bought my premium annual pass before the deal stops which I'm very excited about.

I booked my March cruise's extras as soon as I could which was during my trip to OKW but somehow forgot to check in as well. So last night I'm checking on the reservations and see all the check in stuff says incomplete. I was annoyed with myself since apparently I completely forgot and thus didn't get an early arrival time like I wanted. Oh well, flights are so expensive the morning of the cruise I'm thinking of going down a day early but need to check with the boss to see if that's ok with work. I did get everything I wanted. Palo brunch and dinner, parasailing on CC, and an island tour on St. John.

I decided to cancel the sea lion excursion I booked for January. Since this will be the first time on the Wonder we're just going to enjoy the ship. I'll be back to Nassau in October and will make that excursion a must do. As for the we it will be another mother/daughter trip. No one else in my life shares my enthusiasm for Disney so it looks like she's my trip buddy when it comes to Disney. We have great fun together and I cherish the quality time.

I got an iPad mini for Christmas which will be so convenient for trips. I'm absolutely obsessed with it.

I must get this TR finished before the upcoming cruise, hopefully I can make it happen!

Have a great day everybody, I'll be back soon
