I thought you said he was just like his father?

So maybe you'd get a more significant reaction if you just said, "hey kids, we're never going back to Disney World."

I realize this is the wrong TR for this, but... Lie.

You know you were the one that wanted the monorail. Don't even act like it wasn't.

There wasn't a doubt in my mind.

I wish someone would suprise me with a trip to Disney - the reaction would be great! Well, since I am always the planner, I guess that won't happen.

Ok, so I am here, ready for the ride!

Just watched this. Great video! Never can predict with kids.

My son Mark watched the video with me. He said he thought he knew the boy in the video. I told him you met him last week and rode Mission Space together. He said, "Oh yeah, my Disney friend." Then he wanted to know why Seth was on the computer and he wasn't.

Great shot with Jasmine, by the way.
