Hello SSC peeps

I have now added plane tickets and a car rental to our lodging reservations, and we have had all 7 disney tickets in hand for months, and DH has the time off work....so it looks like we should definitely be making our big combined family trip June 2-10 I did extend it one day, and need to get on booking our extra night...going to use my DVC points to get us a 2 bedroom at AKV Probably not going to tell the kids at all until we pull up there! DH and I didn't really have a honeymoon (1 night at a b&b a mile from our house), so this will pretty much be it (because everyone wants their 5 kids along on their honeymoon, right? ). We do have friends that are coming with us, so we will watch their 2 one night and they will watch ours one night so we can do kidless dates. And, our condo is big enough for adults to have their own bedrooms Wish I could make it for the SSC meet this year (even though I'm not single anymore), but DH probably won't have any vacation left by then

If I can't make it, I'll try and find you guys a flag or something to help you see the group in a crowd since I won't be there to tower over everyone in the crowd.

I never said they weren't allowed to come... just that I'm not sure they would ever be able to see their son the same way again if things got any more "interesting".

Sadly, That's happened to me on occasional as well in the past. I really hate it when it happens.

to the group. Which part of Atlanta are you from? When I used to live in the area I was one of the true minority....a native.

I'm thinking you should plan on coming to the meet. Even if he doesn't have any vacation time leftover, It'd give you a quick trip to meet some friends, and you would now have a built in baby-sitter.

I understand the honeymoon issues. It's looking like i'm gonna end up in a somewhat similar boat. Plans are looking like we aren't going to get to take our honeymoon for about a month after the wedding. Of course, part of the reason for that delay is that the Family has agreed to look after the baby for a few days to allow us to enjoy WDW by ourselves, before they bring him down when they start their vacation and we get another couple weeks as part of the bigger family vacation.

Well, Seeing as how at least one of your Crew will likely be in attendance, I could see that working. You should make sure you make it at the very least though. You know... To Document the occasion.

BTW... Text me your mailing address.

After all the comments it sounds like it would be a blast. I would be interested but it'd probably have to be towards the end of October. I'm not sure what my school schedule will be like then.

I think we should pick a date and time first. . .That would help with the yes/no/maybe part that DC adds to the first part of the forum. . .I like the end of October to Beginning of November dates. . .or the end of September to beginning of October dates. . .those are my picks. . .

End of Oct might be good. We can still have F&W and maybe we can all meet up at MNSSHP as well

You can put us down as a maybe. We have so much happening this year and not sure if we can make it, but are going to try. We did have a blast last year.
