A personal note to Mark: Happy 30th Anniversary. We've been through ups and downs, good and bad, raised two amazing young men, have the greatest of friends and a future daughter. I love you with all my heart and look forward to the next 30 and maybe some grandbabies for us to spoil!

Go over to the Poly and get a Dole Whip downstairs and bring it up to the Tambu lounge upstairs and ask the bartender for a shot of coconut rum.

Did not get a chance to do that yet but I will report back results when I do.
I think coconut rum would be good, but I also like orange flavored rum and am a big fan of the orange pineapple swirl Dole Whip. I think some orange rum splashed into that would be pretty awesome too.

Happy Anniversary!
Inconsiderate people are the worst. So sad she did that and cost you the time and an extra Disney day.
I cannot wait to see the new Monsters Inc movie! Brings back memories of our Chicago Area Disers group. Whenever a Pixar/Disney cartoon would come out, we would try to plan a DIS Group get together with our kids to see the movie and then go to lunch. Seems like forever ago.
Driving to the Keys brings back memories, too. I remember thinking when we reached Miami we were almost there! LOL (then it took another 5 hours). I am very glad Orlando is nearer the top than the bottom.

Nice wrap-up to the F&G portion of your trip! I agree about the France Pavilion........it is very nicely themed and it seems like you can always find something interesting to see there.

Sorry you didn't have a better experience in Daytona. It is always sad when places don't live up to our expectations from previous trips. I like the picture of you on the beach barefoot. Did Mark have any problems getting harrassed by the seagulls with that shirt on?

And how classless of the customer to make you guys drive all the way there knowing that she was going to blow you off. Yes, another night at Disney would have made the trip so much better.

I actually went to one NASCAR race and it happened to be at Daytona. It was the July race after Dale Earnhardt was killed that February at the 500, so it was a good one to be at with all the tributes.

Grilled Cheese sandwich..........I guess old age does have its privileges!!! And at least Denny's is a step up from Waffle House!

Congrats on the winnings at the Casino. With your luck you should have visited a Publix while in Florida and stocked up on lottery tickets........

Too bad you didn't get the chance to try out that Dole Whip with coconut rum and report back to us. It sounds really good!

In this day and age of disposible marriages, it is great to see a couple like you and Mark still love each other after 30 years no matter what comes your way.

Wow did I get far behind! I had a busy weekend and then had to go to a class for work the last two days. Nothing like wasting two days listening to stories about the guys personal life since he apparently didn't want to teach. So on to the updates, this is going to be long!

I agree that the Lady and the Tramp topiaries were a little strange although I love how they did her ears.

I either missed the Toy Story topiaries or they weren't out yet.

Thanks for posting the menu pictures, I enjoyed reading what was offered. I was supposed to tag along with a friend for a conference next May but it got moved to Daytona. After reading your description of Daytona, I'm not sure I still want to join her. Another friend at work has expressed interest in seeing the Flower and Garden show so I may go with that option.

I loved those little Doggie topiaries or whatever they were, so cute!

Oh my, that ice cream that Mark got was huge!! That might have to go on my list of snacks to try although I'm not too fond of waffle cones. Hopefully they will have something else to put the ice cream in.

I saw all the topiaries that you did in France, on the bridge and in England except for those teapots made from flowers. They were beautiful!

Yeah for a visit with Tigger! I don't think I could ever go to Disney without visiting my Pluto.

I loved those Monster's Inc topiaries, especially the random monsters in the bushes behind the main guys. I only got to see Mike though, Sully wasn't there yet.

I agree with you on the Oz movie. I did see the new one and while I liked it, it didn't come anywhere close to the first one.

I wish the Butterfly house had been open when I was there. I don't really care about the fairies but I would have loved to see the butterflies.

The picture of Mark on SSE is hilarious!! What the heck happened to his eyes!

Haven't Disney hotels spoiled us? I can never go to another hotel without wishing it was a Disney one. That one in Daytona just looked yucky.

Sorry you didn't like Bubba Gumps. DH & I loved it when we ate at the one at City Walk at Universal. DH is such a fan of the movie that might be why we liked it though. I can't seem to remember what I thought of the food.

Sorry the customer in Daytona didn't work out. Sounds like a real selfish person to me wasting your time like that!

ETA: I forgot to mention how much I've been enjoying the wedding countdown and the pictures of your kids both here and on Facebook.
