Not to be off topic here, but just thought I might add this..

Just got back from our 11 night BWV trip Sept 1st.
1st time ever for villas or deluxe, and Boy were we missing out.

BWV is certainly very nice, great location, atmosphere,restaurants, and yes even the dreaded CLOWN Pool too...

The only thing we absolutely hated was the Dungeon like laundry room.(More like a closet) It had 3 washers and only 2 dryers, which only 1 was working for part of the trip....

My next trip is scheduled right now for SSR, but we are waiting until I can see if AKL becomes available...And I hope it does..

Questions I have :

1.)Is the Studio value that drastic a difference ( size/ accomodating wise ) than the standard?

2.)Do the pools have Elaborate slides, or just a generic slide?

3.) What about the main Laundry Room? Has to be better than BWV.

Also is there an extra bed like the day bed at BWV.

The reason I ask is my kids are now at that age where they dont want to be near each other..LoL Twins go figure....

So I'm totally confused where does your not knowing what is going on part of the vacy fitting in and how can you go away for so long? Our cats have a fit when we are gone ten days, we don't dare plan trips longer than that (or is it Fran who has the fits? ) either way 10 is the max I'm allowed. and even then I get flamed in the last day or two...

Why do you book studios when you get a laundry all to yourself in an 1 BR?

Last night I posted a thank you for all the wishes for our visit with Kathrin, but it seems to be MIA this morning.

So... We had a wonderful time! Lots to talk about after a year.

Tomorrow we are going to head down to Richmond for the day since Chris will be done with the shoot by tonight and their flight is not until tomorrow evening. The only thing that would make this a better deal is if our younger DD, Kristin, could take a day off and join us.

We are having quite a good thunderstorm right now. They have been predicting rain for us all week, but we have had generally partly sunny and hot days. The weatherman last night said we had already had 50 days of temps over 90 this summer. And then he said it wasn't over yet.

Because with only 160 points i was able to get 11 nights this August as opposed to only maybe 6 in a 1 bedroom. My kids are still young enough where i can still get away with it and no one fighting.
