Sorry you got caught in the rain. The same thing happened to us when we went to Raglan Road for dinner. Downpoured! It rained everyday we were there. I know it's common but that's never happened to me before.

Parker and I have the love of Fruit Ninja in common lol

Hi Dan! I know I've been awol for a while. I used your fabulous links to get caught up. What a great trip. The kids are so cute. You're doing lots of things we've never done so it really great to see it. I'm sorry for the downpour and Parker's cough. Hopefully he was better in the morning.

Nope, they're not usually sized for hurricanes. Which doesn't prevent people around here from expecting them to keep things completely dry during one of those storms...

Uh oh. Good thing you didn't grab the cupcakes.

Thanks for another fun update!

Looking forward to your last day.
me i slept like a log...candi she was the one up most of the night watching him...usually when i am out, im out till morning.

yeah wasnt really the mood to take the pictures, but i do remember how good the sandwich and the pizza was...and will be getting both again for sure next trip.

the last day was alot of fun.

thats true, noelle wouldnt have liked sleeping in a rain storm...and it made for a fun story for us to remember as well.

Holy rain batman...

Yummy Earl of sandwich. Never been to Wolfgang Puck Express, next on the list. I have ate at the WGP Cafe though and it was delish!!

Poor Parker.... My kids are like that. When my daughter gets sick she screams at the top of her lungs like someone is stabbing her. Glad she doesn't get sick often!!

Great update!!
really? the boat is right there next to the stairs, you cant miss it, something to check out,
that was our first time eating at woflgang, well sort of eating there, the kids leftovers but it was very good and we will be back there for sure.
yeah some kids just cant handle it well, i think it is more hte unknown of what is happening, and how to handle it...we just have to reassure him he is all good.

But you sure made the best of it.

I agree that DTD needs some cover ( and maybe some will come with the renovation or re-imagination)

I have made that monsoon dash out of AK once. At some point you just have to laugh.

Sorry Parker was still having issues.
it was a fun run after we were soaked and could laugh at the kids having so much fun at our expense thats for sure.

hopefully you are right the new plans for it look really cool and just hope it does have a cover over a good portion of it...once you get to the lego store you can go through alot of it without getting too wet since the stores are alot closer at that point.

I'm sure Noelle would love the pick a pearl as well when she gets a bit older! :-)

Mini golfing looked like a great time! The theming there is very cool! Everyone seemed to have fun!!

DisneyQuest also sounds like a lot of fun and Parker seemed to thoroughly enjoy himself!! I love the picture of Noelle looking at the lights and then watching Parker do DDR! Very, very cute!!

Those downpours always hit at the most inopportune times, that's for sure-like when having to run from one side of Downtown Disney to the other! We were caught in one there as well doing the same thing on our last trip! Keeps us on our toes!

Poor Parker throwing up again! :-( I hope he was okay!
we are looking forward to getting back to the campground on a trip, i know you guys are going to have a blast.

i found this for you for the remainder of the month what movies are playing at the sing along...if you are going next month, just google, fort wilderness outdoor movie schedule on the 1st of the month.
Aug 24 - Toy Story 3
Aug 25 - Finding Nemo
Aug 26 - The Game Plan
Aug 27 - Mulan
Aug 28 - The Princess and the Frog (see our princess page)
Aug 29 - Remember the Titans
Aug 30 - Teen Beach Movie
Aug 31 - Wreck It Ralph

wish we were able to spend more time there, 2 hours isnt enough to let them play with everything but gives you a good amount of time to find out what you like to play there.

yep they usually seem to hit when you wish they wouldnt...but it is what it is i guess.

Uh Oh! Not liking the sound of this......

Not liking the sound of THIS either!

My experience with eating at DTD is very limited so far. Usually focus on the resort/park options for meals. I'm thinking I need to try a few more DTD places in the future.

Bart Simpson, is that you???
i have not eaten at bunch of the DTD places but the ones we have we have enjoyed...maybe next trip we can add another one to the mix...

bart simpson....forgot that one, but it really does fit

yeah i would need to borrow a bib from noelle for that one...or just stuff the whole thing in your mouth at once.

i like my camera too much to get it wet.

Sounds like a possibility when at DTD sometime.

None the worse for wear..........or wetness.

Nice One!!!

Aww man, I was hoping you were done with the sickness episodes...........
they make there way back into the picture tomorrow, but not the whole day so thats good

Love the pizza at wolfgang express . So yummy

Poor Parker. Hope he feels okay for the last full day at the Parks
thats funny, another way disney helps you take money from your pocket...they suck you and force you to keep the fun disney times rolling even when you are not there and even when it isnt a disney owned game.

im excited to try some more options of there pizza and they are pretty good size so they could feed more than one

it did seemt o rain a little more this trip than normal. im going to blame it on you since we have never been at the same time before so it must have been you that caused it.

which is why i didnt take the kids into goofies this trip, didnt need to drop that much on sugary treats in there...truth is we forgot to go in there and use some snack credits.

Uh oh. Good thing you didn't grab the cupcakes.
i know they arent size for those huge rains, but i figured they would be a little bigger for the disney dour pours, but maybe ours was just extra downpour that night...i know alot of reports i read from that time of the year, that that nights rain was extra huge and lasted really long alot of people had issues with that rainfall that night.

you have it there, but really any day ending at any disney restaurant is pretty good in my book.

It will be a story you can tell the kids when they are older and does make for a fun memory.

The rain part, not the coughing, getting sick part.
yep many ups and downs those last few days, and just when we thought we turned a corner with the sicky it came back to us.

a great campfire story thats for sure, we have many of those fromour family trips over the years.

Live Life update

Live life update

ran out of time for a real update today so thought i would throw in a few pics

as some of you saw yesterday was little princess noelles 2nd birthday.

it was also parkers first day of school.

so i took the day off work to hang with them

noelle woke up all smiles for her big day.



her favorite toy was the talking Boo doll from monsters inc that she got...it sounds just like boo and says all her phrases from the movie, and noelle has almost half of them down and says them with her.
after her presents we walked paker down to his bus stop.

can you tell he is excited to ride the bus?




and in his seat at kindergarten. dogs are sort of the theme in the classroom.
hence the dogbowls on the tables for there crayons and such.



after we met parker at his school to take a picture, we left and spent the morning going shopping with noelle to a few places and getting her a few more things for her birthday that she had gift cards and her birthday coupons for.

then spent the afternoon playing with her new toys waiting for parker to get home and then went out to eat to celebrate both occasions for the kids.

it was a good day and looking forward to her big party this weekend.



hope everyone has a good weekend.

I said it yesterday, but I'll say it again....

Happy Birthday, Noelle!!

I hope she liked her Dora doll.
I love that Disney was able to capture Boo's voice from when she did the movie, such a sweet little character. She always makes me cry at the end of the movie.

The kids look amazing, as always, and I'm so happy to see Parker happy about school.

Hope you and Mama didn't cry too much after you saw him off to school.
