So excited to be checking in at AKL 9/15-9/20. This has always been one of my dream resorts and we got such a great deal, we are going to celebrate our anniversary! We plan to spend most of the time relaxing at the resort this trip and only 2 days at the parks (including MNSSHP). Can't wait! Thanks so much for all the great pictures. I'm getting even more excited reading through the threads.

These have a chocolate and nut base, with dark chocolate mousse on top. There was a hint of some liqueur in the mousse, but not enough to create an alcohol taste. They are very rich and worth every calorie.

No it's just with the time difference and that my DH is active duty also and my DD is in daycare from 5:30 am to 6:00 pm I only get to talk to them via skype on the weekends.

Hi everyone, I had a great day today . I got to talk to DD, she sure is a chatty cathy and super cute. I was going to try and upload a picture but photobucket is being super slow because everyone is on the internet right now.

I also did something really crazy today . I signed up for the Army 10 miler, we are running it on camp on August 7th, I also signed up for the disney half marahton on the 12th of Jan. ehh those are the longest runs I have ever done.

The picture was taken to capture as much light from the tree as possible which required that the shutter be open for a long time. The people in the picture if they had sat or stood still would have been there the as "whole" person, but by moving they became blurred images.

good catch on seeing it..

Just to bring some closure, I wanted to let everyone know that my Uncle is now at rest and I feel at peace, knowing that he is no longer suffering. Thank you all for being such great friends. I truly appreciate it.

I am worried about my father, he is a strong man but feels deeply for his little brother, they have grown very closer over the past couple of years. and he is taking it very hard.

My Dad had cancer a couple of years ago, and was able to find it very early, treat and has been in remission since, is younger brother, did not know he had cancer until it was almost too late, and they tried everything even experimental treatments, and his older sister has been battling cancer for two years now and also has never been in remission. All three of them have had different forms and responded differently that each other.

I think it is just so close to home, know that all three siblings have/had a form of cancer.

As you all probably know, our younger DD lives in the same town we do. She was a theater performance major in college and discovered that a recession is not the best time to enter the arts as a profession. Well, to be quite honest, when is?!?!? Anyway, after graduation 4 years ago she came home for a few months and found a job at our bank here in town. She discovered she has really enjoyed this and has decided to stick with it for a while. But, we all knew that she needed to spread her wings. The time has come!

She and her room mate found an apartment in Alexandria (one hour north of us) and started applying for jobs in the area. As of Wednesday they are both gainfully employed in their chosen areas and they pick up the keys for their new apartment today. They have 10 days to vacate the apartment here in F'burg so we are going to take a few car loads of things up over the next couple of weekends and that will leave them with just one smallish truckload of big things to move on the 31st.

I have tapped a couple of my HS students who are brawny and not working this summer to help with the load in from this end. I think they ought to be able to handle finding someone to help on the north end of the move too. At least I hope they can because I will be teaching that day and cannot help!

So, today I get to see the apartment. Tomorrow I get to see the apartment. And tomorrow night we are going to see "Batman." Big weekend here!
Congratulations to your daughter and her friend. I hope that the move will go smoothly and that they enjoy the new apartments and their new jobs.

Elin,

Congrats to Kristin and Ashley. An exciting new chapter in their lives (yet not to terribly far from home! )


Brandi,

I can certainly understand your father having a difficult time. You're a good daughter - you'll make sure he gets through this OK.

Ahhh, much more sense. I thought they were restricting contact which wouldn't be good for morale.

I hope the run goes well

Hi guys I just found you I was afraid there wasn't a thread. The boards have been so busy today I look earlier and saw nothing about AKL lite thread. Guess it had dropped back beyond page three. Thank you Pam for posting a little while ago.

Just wanted to say Hi to everyone. I have been super busy the last three days helping a friend put together everything for a BIG party tonight. Her DD is graduating from nursing school with her RN. There will be 75 guests
it should be a blast and there is certainly a lot of good food.

I will be back to read the thread and catch up. Hope everyone is having a great Saturday.

Ann
