That would be great, Kim. I have the Disboards app on my iphone. I am assuming I can access messages through it. I would check, but my phone is MIA at this time. I suspect some little stinker has hijacked it, but they are asleep at the moment, so I can't interrogate them. We are planning on spending all day Sunday and Wednesday at the Fort and many an afternoon at the pool. I am getting really excited! I have wanted to go to the Fort for a long time.

Here's one of the sets of shirts I made for the kids. The black heads for the boys are made from flocked vinyl and the girls' are glitter vinyl cut with my silhouette. The backs are like this:



I made a few other sets too (one for each day we're at the parks and another for signatures) but these are my favorites! (And pay no attention to the image quality - these are just quick iphone pics!)

I take my 18-105 VR, and I use the wide angle a lot. I'd rather shoot wide and then crop later if I need to.

I'm definitely a wide angle shooter too. I wish I had a walkaround that started at 18mm or so... My widest walkaround is 24mm and I really do miss the extra mm more than I thought!

Meghan is an awesome name! They were really easy to make - much easier than the iron on shirts. I have one set that has stick family with mickey ears on. Cheesy but super cute. Those took forever to weed though - the tiny details of the stick figures just wouldn't come out!!

And I didn't mention... We're leaving TOMORROW!!!! Technically it's super early Friday morning, but I could it as Thursday until the sun comes up on Fri. Anything to make it seem closer, right?

So today is the day! Made cookies this morning (nobakes) but put too much peanut butter in them and they crumbled! So made another batch. Then DS3 decided to pour orange juice all over my camera gear (a full liter!) Got that cleaned up, and thankfully my equipment is in a Pelican so it was all safe. Added 2 more loads of laundry to my to-do list for the day.

Got the cooler packed up and potato salad made (can't go camping without potato salad!) I have a few loads of laundry left to do and then we're getting pizza for dinner with paper plates (so no more dishes to do!)

Getting excited to leave!

I thought my DH was nuts for following this board so closely and now I'm the one who's addicted! . Looking forward to following your TR and getting inspiration for our TR in 3 weeks! Safe travels!

Clemson - its a great place to be addicted to! :thumbsup welcome!

We're on the road! Kids are all settled in and pretty happy. Only one set of wireless headphones are working so we'll have to did a Walmart or something to pick up a couple more. But other than that we're on time and all is going well (knock on wood!)

Oh yea, a live fort TR! I'm in! Travel safe! Have fun! What area are you leaving from? The last time we drove to Disney it took 24 hours, but we had to stop A LOT cause my dad got sick on the way down. I don't think that's our real travel time driving straight through.
