Looking forward to reading your TR! It is always fun to take your kid for the first time and wonder if they will love it or hate it LOL I'm lucky mine are as addicted to the place as me.

  3. Food Porn, completely non-existent in the previous TR, will make an appearance

  4. Less "Little Black Rain Clouds" will follow us around
    .
  5. An expanded Cast of Characters, including the newest member of our immediate family, and several members of our extended family.
    .
  6. Non-disney life updates. I have changed my view since the first TR. If something is happening while I am writing this, I'll share it with all you.
    .
  7. Color coding. With the inclusion of things not directly related to this vacation, I'm going to try to color-code my updates so anyone skimming can easily find them.
    • TR updates will be BLUE
    • Life stuff will be GREEN
    • Flashbacks will be ORANGE
    .
  8. No names will be changed to protect the guilty! None of this DD, DS, DW, etc. stuff. Let's get personal and use actual names!
Sounds a lot like my TR writing evolution! I am along for the ride and looking forward to it!!!!!!!!! Great intro's.

Welcome Aboard! I know we've got one addicted. We'll have to see if the other one follows suit.

I definitely color code for quotes, with up to 6 of us, relaying a conversation is a little easier that way.

I gave up the pseudonyms for folks after my first TR, too much work to keep it straight!

Introductions updated!!! Finally!!

Wow... right out of the gate I manage to hit a snag and go a good week or so without updating the TR!! ugh!!

No more of that!! getting back in the swing and keeping this moving along. I hope you all are having a good Labor Day weekend so far. I had to work Saturday, but I have the next two days off. That has allowed me to stay up late and finish the introductions, which are back on page 1. There you can meet the rest of our extended family.

Been a little stressed out. Spread ourselves a bit thin with the vacation, and taking the couple of weeks off from work meant no paycheck during that time. We came back and right away the washing machine died... and the phone wouldn't stop ringing...

But we're managing to get by without the washing machine for now, and we avoided a would-be-disaster this week when my boss neglected to approve my timesheet. I *almost* didn't get paid yesterday. But the error was caught and fixed and the money came through, and bills got paid, and now the phone will be quieter and we can enjoy the holiday weekend...

saturday morning we hit the beach:













Didn't stay too long because we had to get back home so I could change and get to work. Bella was upset we didn't stay longer, and Jackson probably would have preferred not going at all. He didn't enjoy himself and lately he has been afraid of the water.

We'll see how much more fun we can have this holiday weekend before summer vacation comes to an end and Bella starts kindergarten and Lisa goes back to work. (Lisa went back thursday, but then had friday off and goes back this upcoming week)

Nice little beach trip. And excellent “Green” post.

I also went back and read up on the rest of the traveling party as well. Quite the crew! First off: congratulations to your Mom and Dad, both on the anniversary and on getting that large a family “all growed up” and out into the wild, wild world. With that big a crew, I suspect that nearly everything y’all put together was an adventure and a half.

Looking forward to reading the rest of the story.

Love the beach pictures....very cute!!

And I got all caught up on the updated family introductions! You have a nice sized family! I come from such a small family, I'm always amazed by large families. And no matter the size of the family, differences occur. My sister lives maybe a mile from me but we don't see each other a lot. We can go weeks without talking. She's 6 years older than me & we are just 2 very different people. But, I know we'll always be there for each other if we need. It just is what it is.....you know?

Thank you. I do not know how my mom did it. I feel overwhelmed most of the time with just the two I have. I cannot imagine 6 more!! I realize we weren't all rugrats at the same time, so that probably helped... but still...

Thank you. My wife comes from a small family. I think mine is overwhelming to her. She's never understood how I can go weeks without speaking to anyone in my family and be okay with that. I always tell her that the way we look at it, if you haven't heard from somebody, that means they're okay. It's when they're in trouble or need something that they come calling!!

And now with Facebook... you just check their pages to see what they're up to!! It kind of helps, but it also feeds the madness since that takes away the need to call anyone.
