The only downside to any of this is we will once again be missing MEK. One of these days our trips will overlap!


So glad to hear the plans for your spring trip! And I'm excited you are returning to the YC- I'll add you to the Yacht Club Be Our Guest list for May!

He lead us over to a picnic table where we had to sign off allowing our likenesses to be used. As soon as he walked away Dale said "you don't even drink. Why did you want to do this?" I said, "Because it's FREE!" Plus I thought it would be fun. After we signed the releases the man brought us an apple strudel to share and a glass of dessert wine for each of us. Just before they started filming I turned to Dale and said, "how do I look?" He replied, "hot and sweaty". Yep, that man is a charmer So looking all hot and sweaty we ate strudel on camera and then vowed to never look at the pictures
Our treats and the pins he gave us


That is even COOLER!!!

Once again, I am loving your photos! It looks like a really GORGEOUS day.

The mussels and beer look good to me, but the filet looks absolutely incredible! YUM!

Thank you! We loved both the YC and can't wait to get back there!

I just love how Disney pays attention to little details like that!

Thank you! It was a beautiful blue sky kinda day but crazy hot! At least it wasn't real humid though!

Dale enjoyed all of it

I like Dale's lunch beverage choices better.

Looks like a fun time, I would love to make it to the F&W festival.

I saw that video you guys were in a few months ago. I did a double take when watching it and I had to think where I recognized the faces from.

If you enjoy a variety of foods and adult beverages, you'd love it! I hope you make it there sometime!

When I read this I seriously hoped you were joking! My curiousity got the better of me and I went to You Tube and saw the video. Thankfully we weren't on there long or it would have been painful

I guess we ended up in a video that the Disney Blog put out promoting the Festival. Thankfully our appearance is brief.

Dale loved the filet. We haven't been to LeCellier in years since we had a mediocre meal there about 10 years ago. That little sample defintely made him want to go back!

All 3 of us are excited for Andrew to arrive. Dale and I haven't seen him since Sept and Caitlin hasn't seen him since Halloween. Now we're just pryaing for good weather as he and a buddy drive here from Louisiana!


That sounds like a plan! I will remember that!

I hope they have good driving weather! It has been spring like around here the past few days. Not very Christmasy!

I fell behind, I had to get my computer repaired, so I'm back to comment on whatever I may have missed!

Caitlin, you received some great gifts at your shower. I love the plates! I was totally ogling those when I was there in November.

Love the pictures that you took messing around with the settings on your camera. They turned out great.

Awesome that the CM gave you a clue to the fact that the booths would be open at 2pm. Score!

That was a great first booth to stumble upon open!

That's awesome that you were picked to film eating FREE STUFF! Free is always a bonus. Who cares if you looked hot and sweaty.

Yum - everything looks great!

Thank you. It hasn't been very Christmasy up here either but of course they are calling for the first snow on Friday when they should be coming in

When I mentioned the Grapefruit beer to Dale he thought it sounded good. I read they are adding food and wine booths to the Flower and Garden Fest so he's hoping they might have that in May.
