That is the most beautiful picture - what a treasure.

Glad you are on the mend. Take care

I love the MK with all its lights turning on in!

How nice to see pictures from the parts of Pirates we never made it, too. Glad that your bunch had smooth sailing.

Glad everything is finally calming down!!! I absolutely love that picture of the girls. You can just see the love and excitement they have for their littler sister!!

My favorite place in all of the WS is France bakery. I LOVE it in there even if it does get crowded at times. We have definitely been there when lines were out the door. I'm excited for the expansion/remodel, but I sincerely hope that they don't "ruin" it. A new location I can handle, but I hope they don't take anything away.

Let me know when we are thinking for a meet. We have no plans that week outside DH working so we should be able to work everything out.

We are going to MNSSHP Sunday night.
I tried to talk Lexi into being but she said no way!
I may dig out the custom airbrush tees I had made for last year and see how they look after being washed.

I was so bummed when I thought I would miss you and the girls by a day.
I am thrilled to get a peak at sweet little Sophie.

We arrive just before 10am so we usually are at POP by 11am. (there is always a stop in the Earport before we get on ME. )

I made a lunch ADR for Liberty Tree but I will cancel it.

Set a time and place and we will be there!
Who knows my room may be ready when I arrive.

I have the biggest smile right now! Can't wait to tell Mom and Lexi.
My Mom felt bad that I was going to miss you.

Oh, I LOVE MK at night! And Pirates. And that gift shop is one of my favorites, as well as my mom's and Kailyn's.

Thank you so much! I am so excited because I absolutely love the directors and all the teachers there. It's small, and everyone knows everyone else. And I'm glad you sometimes wish you were teaching preschool again; whenever I tell people that preschoolers are my cutoff age, they think I'm crazy. When I mention toddlers, well, forget it.

I also wanted to tell you, my friend left for Disney today. I'm sure she'll be sending me pictures, so want me to send some your way? If she posts any on Facebook, I'll be able to share them on here with everyone, too!

Lights can make a difference in the atmosphere of a place. I always like Tomorrowland better at night because of the lighting.

You have me a little spooked to ride Pirates now. Maybe that'll be my excuse for just hanging out in the gift shop to take pictures while the others are riding.

The ride we get stuck on the most is Spaceship Earth.

I hate for you to cancel Liberty Tree. What time is it? We will be back at Pop about 1:30, and we'll just be hanging out - probably letting the girls swim and waiting for ME. We'll need to go out front around 2:30ish. Does that work for you? I am hoping that will work for others, as well, and you can see lots of people at once. We can get a good group picture maybe.

I think our MNSSHP is the 8th. We've booked a room at Little Mermaid on the 10th, so the girls will be able to spend the night and swim at a brand new resort.

Don't tell anyone, but I really like the gift shop better than the ride.

My non-teacher friends say they could never, ever be teachers. I tell them I could never, ever be a nurse or whatever they are. It's sure nice that there are so many different jobs and so many different personalities to fill them. I gripe about the paperwork, testing, and pressure, not the actual teaching.

I'm always up for Disney pictures. I'll check FB every evening to see what you've got!

We do plan on seeing you. Don't even think about getting away before we meet up. What are your plans for the morning? We can either meet you where ever you go or plan on seeing you at POP before you head out. We will have a car so getting around won't be an issue.
If you think you might be going to MK or Epcot, we can walk or monorail there. The other parks or DTD we can drive to. I AM hoping for more than just a quick hello.....

Lana, we are going to the party on Tuesday the 16th. Marc and I have been working on our costumes and I'm really excited about dressing up this year! I did try to talk him into going BOTH Sunday and Tuesday nights. Our friend Katie, will be there with her God-daughter that evening...
We will see if I talk him into it!

MK at night with all of the lights glowing is one of my favourite things in the whole world! So pretty!

POtC is so great. We are currently trying to figure out if the kids will be ok on it in October. They have never been on before (they scare easily) but we think with them enjoying Jake and the Neverland Pirates now and knowing more about what pirates are that they might be ok. Did Brooklynn or Bella ever get spooked by it?

I bought my WS tote at the twining tea shop- one of my favorite shops by the way. Eventhough I didn't need another tote, couldn't resist that one...I use it at the mall,target ,Walmart ...places where I buy more items. I got mine in 2009, but didn't see any in 2010...it might be one of those hit and miss items.

Personally, my favorite group is Off Kilter. As for the French bakery, the line is always massive when we go by or we have just eaten....maybe we will have better luck this year.

Out of the blue, my husband just said to my son," this year at Disney, we should actually pay money at the shooting gallery"

Love the pool pictures! It looks like they were having so much fun.

Ugh, I would be terrified to get stuck on Pirates! I don't know why, but I specifically think Pirates would be scary. So glad you had a regular, non-sticky ride.

It looks like 1:30 at Pop is going to be a good group meet time. We get picked up about 3. I don't know what we will be doing the night of the 12th or the morning of the 13th. Sometimes, we stay out late the last night and then just sleep in until we get up to pack on the last morning. Sometimes, we get in early and pack on the last night, then stow our luggage and run off to a park (usually Magic Kingdom) on the last morning. It's all up in the air until the last minute, depending on how the girls are making it. You guys get there the night of the 12th, right? You can text and see where we are and what we are doing, if you want, and we can go from there.

You know, our girls have really never been badly spooked by anything at WDW, because they've just been used to it. They've flinched a time or two at certain stages, but nothing where we've had to leave an attraction. I wouldn't want to predict for another child, though. I can see where some of this stuff, if a kid has never been around it, would be scary - big bugs, huge snakes, fire, loud noises, etc.

Yeah, I think the bakery move is going to be a good one. :yes::

I don't need another tote, either. I have some I don't use. I just keep thinking this one is so different, and someday I may need a tote again.... Who knows if I'll end up with this one in my closet? It's not like it's some big huge cost, though, if I decided to spring for it.

I always like it when we luck up and have the kiddie pool to ourselves.

Yes, we breezed right through Pirates. As always, I continue to be amazed at how real the Jack Sparrow faces look It is incredible!

I hope we can work out a good day for Lion King. Two of those weekends are holiday weekends, and one is booked for Brooklynn's dance recital. That leaves the June 1 or going with the Mother's Day or Memorial Day Saturday.

I don't dislike Pirates; it's just not one of my must do's, like it is with most people. I have to be in the mood to really want to do it myself, but I am always up for doing whatever my family wants to do, so I am fine with going on it any time.

Okay, then, let's stick with the 1:30 Pop meet for now.
