We don't know when we are taking the little guy. It might be in January when I am doing the half marathon. If not then, definitely next November.

Nice with the Southwest flight maneuver. Very very smart.

Illegal picture taking. Although I would have been afraid of dropping the camera.

Kid pool tossing is an excellent sport.

I think I'm going to start singing Parker's Disney World song. It's so appropriate.

All caught up again, Dan. I can't believe how big those kiddos are getting...and they just get cuter every day.

Love how you were so smooth on your feet with covering questions by Candi (although you and Marv really need to be more careful in the future).

And Parker's questions just cracked me up. And love that he wanted to spend his money.

I'm so glad to finally be hearing about this trip!! I remember when you shared about Parker wanting to pay for the trip.... about broke my heart. He has such a sweet heart.

Can't wait to hear more!!

We did talk about me sending the package and the fact that it would have AoA stuff in it, yes? I can't remember! I just want to make sure I didn't almost blow your cover. Oh, and I could have printed out Pop stuff for you - sorry about that. I just didn't think about it!

So funny that he didn't like the cookie, either! My friend Anna bought a cookie off the Christmas tree at the Grand Floridian when we went in December 2008, and her little boy was 4 then and he decided he'd eat it. Well, it wasn't really made to be eaten, more of a decoration. But since he had already taken a bite, Anna told him he could eat the rest. He told her it was yucky and he didn't want it. She took a bite and spit it out! She was mad that she paid like $15 for a cookie that they couldn't even eat!

Such cute pics of the kids! I can't believe how grown up Parker is these days! Tell Candi she looks great!
there were also a few others that might have known but it involved some photopass stuff sooo

he looks way more grown up when we cut his hair if we let it go shabby he looks like a little toddler again.

she does look great thanks.

both sound like good times to take him, totally different experience at each age for him and you guys to witness it.

will you be doing a report of it?

thanks, i love a good deal

the deal they were offereing last month that my BIL got was spend 1000 within the first three months of getting the card and get 50,000 points (i think that is how many it was)
he signed him and my sister up...they are hopping to get that for both of them and have enough to fly round trip from here to LA for disneyland.

illegal picture taking is only illegal if you get caught...and okay if the guy running the zip line says "what camera, you look like you have it stored away to me"

ohh you did dont worry, i even told you not to worry about it and send everything like you normally do...before it arrived i also told her not to open any mickey mail as there might be something secret in it...she didnt even bat an eye and said okay.

luckily it was just paid with a snack credit, i would have been upset even paying the 3 bucks for it.

very gross, not sure if eating it fresh right away made from the oven would have helped, the flavor was not there at all...it was listed as a sugar cookie, but tasted more like a dried out gingerbread with very weak ginger bread flavoring.

that really stinks those cookies they got were so bad, you would think they would be awesome.

No problem.

Thank you for compliment. I have not done one in years, so maybe next year. I am pretty lazy and just post my trip pics on Facebook for now


I can't believe how big Parker has gotten. He is so handsome

Noelle is such a cutie pie.

Good cover with Candi

How cute Parker kept asking to go to Disney. I bet it was breaking your heart not to tell him.

I can't wait to hear how their surprises went

Not sure yet! Maybe! Do you typically go every 2 years? I noticed in your signature yall go about every 2 years.. Thats about right for us too.. Looking at September 2014- It was such a nice time to go- ( Sept 14th just seems so far away)

they do take alot of work, but i like how it lengthens out my trip and makes the next one that much closer.

can you PM me what your daily schedule was, i am curious if we did cross paths some day and not even know it.

he is growing up so fast, but still has his little boy qualities that make you just want to hug the snot out of him.

it was hard not to tell him

TR's help the time between trips go much faster. by the time you finish the TR, you are ready to start really planning the next one.

we started out the first two years of our marriage, then switched to every 2 years, we would like to go more often, but it just sort of worked out that way the last 3 trips.

the off years let us take other week trips to other locations.

this sept. trip seemed to be the most crowded of the 3 sept trips we took.

we really enjoyed the early december trip we took, low crowds christmas stuff is up, and cooler weather 70's every day

We have been in December before too and it is really nice. Just hard to afford trip, plus Christmas ;( I thought it was rather crowded too opposed to how I thought it would be... September is also nice because then when everyone else is going to the beach and things during the summer- you know your "after summer trip" is around the corner!
