Found that welcome mat in a Pawleys Island gift shop and I couldn't resist using it here.

Kathy! You are indeed first. And don't remind me about the boys. I keep telling all of them to stop growing, but they won't listen.

I'm just glad you'll be reading along. The games are absolutely meaningless and just a cheap stunt to draw in readers (don't tell anybody else), so skipping them is never an issue.

Scott! And I would never lie about donuts. I actually did research where the bakery was.

Ah, you are sharp-eyed. No cheese balls on this road trip. We had them on a long weekend trip to Vermont in June and decided to take a cheese ball break for this trip. We went with Pop chips, which we discovered at Costco a few months ago and are extremely addictive.

Disney + Surprises = Magic
Agreed! That sounds like it was a wonderful trip. Nice touch with the hotel, too! I'm sure that earned some major bonus points with her.

And if you knew the Phils' history prior to 2008, you'd know that no one would fake being a Phillies fan.

I picked up on the MI reference as well. As for the lie, got nothing. Maybe the part about making something up in each chapter.
Darcy! If that were a lie, that would mean every chapter is the truth, and the game itself is a lie, except for the first chapter, which would contain a lie, and not the truth. I need to sit down.

Oh and I had to laugh about Scotty's "title" - my father's first name is Heinrich...
Magdalene! Glad you're here!

Cool! I have proudly given Scotty a fake name after your father!

...Maybe it's best not to tell your father about this.

Good eyes. We changed things up a bit here. I think everyone was a little sick of cheese balls from our Vermont trip the previous month.

Subbing.

We surprised our kids who were 3 and 6 at the time and it was a LOT of work! The 6 year old was just starting to read so we had secret meetings after they were asleep, which at the end included packing in secret in the basement! This time they are helping to plan

I'm just glad you'll be reading along. The games are absolutely meaningless and just a cheap stunt to draw in readers (don't tell anybody else), so skipping them is never an issue.

We know you put these games in to give Marv something to look forward too.

You're not kidding about the work! Julie actually made t-shirts for the family (you'll see them later in the report). She was up dying them late at night just to avoid detection.

Also, I'm terrible at keeping secrets, so that made this even more difficult. Especially when we got our tickets in the mail.
