Yeah it was a rough first time on post but luckily after my husband talked to his MP buddy the guy was taken off of the road because I wasn't the first person he had harassed.

I can remember the first time I dove on post it was awful. My oldest actually flunked his written drivers test because if the residential speed limit its different on post then off. That's also the only question he missed. We had a good laugh over that.

So does that mean you don't have to pay the tickets? Or did you already?

It's a lot different than I am used to. Actually driving in Louisiana period is different

I only look all sweet and innocent!

I had to pay them all but they took the inattentive driving ticket away.

Sorry I got so far behind. I even missed the wedding.
I'm so glad Caitlin got her dream wedding with those she loves most. I can't believe how time has flown. Caitlin, I hope your move goes well and that you don't miss home TOO much. Congratulations on the upcoming graduation and Disney trips.

I'm just catching up. Since we are going on a cruise in 3 weeks, I have been cheating on the DIS boards with the Cruise Critic boards.

So I am reading your entry while watching Disney's Haunted Mansion. Such a cute movie. You're so lucky you will be able to see the first Haunted Mansion at DL which is the mansion I believe this movie is based on.

Back to your TR, I really like Columbia Harbor. We ate there for the first time last June. I had never even been inside it before. It really is nice and there is so much room. We enjoyed our meal there too.

Hi Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a Happy Easter (if you celebrate it) We had a wonderful Easter. We started our day very early as we were in charge of our church's Easter breakfast and we had pancake duty. It makes for an exhausting day but it is worth it Following church we had a nice dinner at home and then spent the next several hours watching Disney movies on Netflix


Now back to September....

When Caitlin left off we had spent the morning at the MK and were headed back to Saratoga Springs so we could all take a little break before changing into our costumes and heading back to the MK for MNSSHP

Choosing our costumes had been difficult. My dad isn't too into Halloween so we needed something that wouldn't be too costume-y (is that a word ) We also needed costumes that would appropriate for the Florida heat. None of us wanted to be any hotter than we had to be. So what did we decide? Well see for yourself...



Yep, we were the monsters (albeit simplistically) from Monsters Inc. My dad was Sully, I was Mike, Caitlin was Boo and Andrew was George. You're probably wondering, "Who is George?". George is the "contaminated" monster with the sock on his back. And yes, Andrew had a sock on his back and several times throughout the evening people stopped him and tried to take if off Even though our costumes were very simple we got tons and tons of compliments so it just proves originality counts

After our castle pic we decided to grab some dinner before doing any rides. It was about 4pm so we still had a few hours before the party started. Andrew wanted a burger so we headed over to Pecos Bills. My dad and Andrew were getting the food so I wheeled Caitlin over to a table and waited with her. I wasn't too hungry so all I ordered was onion rings. My sweet son-in-law asked me if I'd like ketchup on them. I unfortunately said "yes". My order of ketchup with a side of onion rings arrived looking like this



He had drowned them in ketchup and I swear I was covered in ketchup before I even ate one

Caitlin had the taco salad. She gave it a thumbs up.


While my dad and Andrew both liked their burgers and fries.


Everyone enjoyed their meals and when we finished it was time to hit some rides. On the way out I got a pic of Caitlin and Andrew.


(you can't see it very well but on her lap she had "little Mike" Boo's stuffed toy)

Our first ride was one we missed earlier


The wait time said "20 min" but since Caitlin was in the wheelchair we used the handicap entrance and barely waited.

Hang on Piglet!


Pooh Bears love hunny!


Hang on Roo!


Silly ol bear



After the ride Caitlin got a pic of Beast's castle


We then headed over to Tomorrowland and went to Monsters Laugh Floor. The CMs there loved our costumes and really fussed over us. My dad was picked to be "Sully" in the story so he had a lot of fun with that. Near the end of the show I looked over and Caitlin was in tears. You see they had placed her in the wheelchair row and she became very emotional. She said she felt very guilty that she would be able to leave the wheelchair behind soon but the other folks there wouldn't have that luxury. And that is how the next phase of her "health issue" began. You see with the ovarian cyst problem she was having the next stage (so to speak) was very hormonal. To be perfectly honest it was like traveling with a woman in menopause. The mood swings came fast and furious and the rest of us had to roll with the punches

It was now time for the party to begin so I will end here and let Caitlin tell you about her first MNSSHP, next time.

Thanks for reading

Glad you and the family had a wonderful Easter. How great of you to serve pancakes on Easter morning.

Of course that's a word. I'm sure it must be in the Disney dictionary at the very least.

Her hormones were out of control, poor thing, and she had crazy mood swings and hot flashes. I felt so bad for her and Andrew.

Usually easier to replace the entire face.

But I'm more than willing.

Thanks for being so accomodating! I was kidding and just giving a sarcastic dig to my son (and teenagers in general)
