Sounds like y'all were having a lot of fun!
The bacon wrapped asparagus is very yummy. I love asparagus. They are a super cheap snack too... one time when the kids were younger, we ate so many that we made ourselves sick.

I am sure that walk through exhibit in DL was open when we last visited. I cannot find my photos from that visit, but I am sure we saw that too. How cool would it be if they had something similar in WDW. Well, I guess you will have to come to DLRP with me instead.

Now that asparagus looks sooooooooo disneylicious! I really hope they keep it on the menu until our 2014 visit.

Oh, and I wanted to say that it is pretty unbelievable these are your boys. You look far too young to have grown children like these.
It was pretty warm when we were there so that time out was perfect since it was almost too cold in that building.

The castle walkthough... I think Kira told me that it was there, but was closed during the times we went. I don't' know.. all I do know is that this was our first time doing it.

Somedays I too think "how can these be my kids? I am not old enough to have grown kids like these." Then... I look in the mirror. When Kira was born I was young. I was only 21. However, there was no one who would have thought that I was even that old. I looked 13 to 15.. I had people come to the door insisting to speak to my parents.

Can't wait for the next update!
I think Zach would have liked to ride ST together, but we only had the one fast pass.... but Alex... now he I am sure enjoyed the break from me.

Ann, you are updating so quickly!!!

I am enjoying your TR of DL. We went once when the girls were 3. We flew to CA for Emma's hemangioma to be removed by John Reinisch (one of my heros ) and the day after surgery, we took them to DL. It before we visited WDW and fell in love!

I'm glad your surprise worked! I know you were super excited!

Great family shot at Goofy's kitchen!! You really had to work hard with the voucher for those pictures!

I'm happy for you that you had some time on your own on some rides and also some time with the boys!

DL is what made us fall in love with Disney. The food at WDW is what has kept us going back to WDW.

Thank you, I like the family shot. Some day I hope..hope hope HOPE to get a grand family shot...one with all my kids and their spouses. I am dreaming though, right? LOL...each trip I figure I am pushing my luck with the disney thing. We will see though... who knows

Life Update - Posted on Both reports

So wish me luck. Today out of the blue, a rep who works for the company I do quit. It just happens to be for the territory that Zach's girl friend lives in. She has been having a rough time at work lately... and when my manager asked me today if I knew anyone in that area.. I didn't hesitate to say I did. Within an hour.. she was hired and I get to train her over the next couple weeks.


So if you could all wish me luck that a. I train her well and b. that her and Zach's relationship doesn't end badly (or at all... I REALLY like this girl)

The two of them did a 5k dirty dash over the weekend. This is a picture of the two of them (and her friend) I had to ask my son. "son, why did you tackle her if you were on the same team?"



She loved the tackle... I am not sure if you can tell by her face. She is such a good match for him. It makes me happy to see them both so happy.

Here is another shot of their "team" Yes, she got my son to wear a shirt that reads "victorious secret" on it.

Yeah, I did actually gain back weight I had lost while in DL. But... those bacon wrapped asparagus, they go along way..easy to be sick if you eat to much.

I love that you had an afternoon alone with the boys. Mark would LOVE that bacon-wrapped asparagus.

Best of luck with your training of Zack's girlfriend; and I hope the relationship holds.

Ann, that pic of you with the boys in front of Sleeping Beauty's castle - you look just like Zoe and very close to her age!!

Thanks for the life update. I too hope Zach keeps this one. They are cute together, and we all know that if Mama's happy, everyone is happy.

One of my favorite things in DLR is that asparagus. They use to be whole stalks though.. I like how they are cut up now. It makes it easier to nibble.

As for Zach and his girlfriend. They started looking at places. Looks like they are moving out! Now even more than ever I hope their relationship holds. Seriously though, she is such a neat girl. I think it will be fun to work with her. And... it is funny cause Zach works with her dad all the time.

Yum is right. I have to try and make some at home I think. I just have not had the time.

Innoventions is the in the building that use to have DL's version of the carousel of progress. There is/was a turntable around the base of the building. Now, the bottom level is the "dream house" It is a huge house that has all of the rooms (ie. living room to bedroom to kitchen) all "smarted out" It is a nice place to relax in.

Zoe resembles me quite a bit. At one time it was hard to tell if a picture of her was one of me at that age or not. She is starting to diverge a bit and look more like her own individual self..which is good. People still often say she is my little clone though. I hope she will end up being a prettier version of me though and not just my "clone". Kinda like Ann 2.0

Thanks for rooting for Zach and Kim too. With them now looking at a place to move to, there is just more reason for them to stay together.

And in that picture you do look young to have sons that age, but I understand all about that looking young. I don't have kids, but people still think I'm 17 or 18 when I am 24

You're right about recipes, so I'll give a PTR the shot. We'll see how many people I can bore to death. Here's my link in case you're interested:

I'm still working on all the pieces to that calendar, and taking pictures along the way. I'll be posting some soon.

That 5K looked juusstt a little muddy. Did the dash stay in the mud, or did they get to run and/or walk on some dry land?

That is how I have always been too. I was even carded at the liquor store just before my last birthday or was it the one before that... yes, I am getting old now.

I am hopping over there!

I started some calendars too...but ack.. I am behind on everything. I am going to try and get caught up on the threads I am sub'd to today and get some house work done... THEN maybe get the calendars done.

The dash.. I think it was all mud and obstacles. I know they loved it.
