I still say the nastiness is overrated. It ain't good, but it isn't that revoltingly nasty. I can't believe she wouldn't try it after Mark downed a cup.

Mark, because it was his birthday, got two special surprises:
I'm glad you all enjoyed the meal at a new place, and I like Mark's birthday surprises. The hat is just too appropriate. It's like they know the legend of the hat pictures.

Did the annoying people all finally pack up and leave, or did it take Andy just snap and start throwing them out of the pool???

Love all of the crazy hat pictures of the guys! And the one of Des and Andy bowing in China.

Teppan Edo looks nice. Bummer you had a screaming kid annoying your last meal with Nicki and Todd though. But the hat looks great on Mark, and I'm glad to hear it withstood the flight home!

LOVE the pictures of you all with Pooh and Tigger. Can't wait for your update on MVMCP!

That cactus Santa made me LOL.

That's so sad that they had to leave. At least you had several days of fun together.

Your last day did turn out to be pretty good!! I'm sorry you had to see your friends leave. That's always a hard day for you two gals, but the wonderful thing is knowing you'll be back and you'll get to see her again.
Have y'all decided when you are moving to FL? Do y'all know what part of FL you want to live in?

Several things I needed to catch up on! I love the invitations, Kathy! They're beautiful!

Always enjoy seeing the silly had pictures!

Glad you enjoyed Teppan Edo- even though it was bittersweet with Nicki and Todd leaving afterwards. We always enjoy eating there. It's not really any different than any hibachi grill type restaurant we might have around home, but everything's more fun at Disney!

Can't wait to see your pictures of MVMCP.

Wow! I had a lot to catch up on!

Looks like y'all were having a really fun day in EPCOT! Sorry the breakfast wasn't the best though. However, y'all look like y'all did have fun with the characters.

I love the Christmas decorations in the Land!

So sorry it was time for Nicki & Todd to leave y'all.

Love the pics of the guys with the hats.

We enjoy Teppan Edo also but not with a screaming baby!

Too bad you had to say goodbye to friends.

Congrats on winning $$$ on the Superbowl.

Looking forward to the party update.

I don't know which pic is my fav..the Mexican minisombreros or the boys with the swords..such determined faces

Perhaps Nicki making her "angry face" would've made the baby giggle... I don't understand if a child acts up...grab the kiddo and go outside...they just need a moment usually oh well. Some people have no regard sometimes. I get a lot of compliments on my kiddos when we go out, but they know how they are supposed to behave...and they know if they can't behave...we are outta there!!!

There never does seem to be enough time to share at Disney! Thankfully it looks like you guys had a very full final day together!

My experience at Cape May hasn't been the greatest with the food either. Nothing really bad, just not anything that would make me rate it high on my list to go back over so many other choices.

Because we had a party to go to in a couple of hours.

Up next, our first ever MVMCP. Would we love it?
Can't wait to read about this..............it is one I really want to try someday!

Sure enough, I just booked for Mark and I round trip to Orlando August 16 - September 1 for $447.60 for the two of us.
Congrats on getting your airfare, and Yep, it looks like you WILL be there on my birthday!!!

I enjoy seeing the plants, too. I do have Norwegian in me and I look just like that statue.

Hope you won at Bingo.

I am so jealous you get to go to Disney 3 or maybe 4 times in one year! Now I am reetired so my trips will be few and far between I fear. But at least i know I will be ther 11/30-12/7 this year.Yeah!!!!!!
Trust me...3 or 4 times is NOT the normal for us. We just want to get as much use out of our Annual Passes as we can.

Thanks, Lisa.

looks like you all enjoyed epcot and the beverages great hat shots with the boys!

The boys were in silly moods on that particular day.

we are planning to have lunch there with some of my scrap DIS friends...bummer about the screaming kid, funny the CM didn't step in

I truly believe the parent should have stepped in. Take the child to the restroom or outside until he is under control...there was really no excuse for the continual screeching.

know you were sad to say good-bye to Nicki and Todd

looking forward to seeing your photos from MVMCP
Yes, I didn't want to say goodbye. I'm going to try to do an update tomorrow or Thursday.

I always forget that World of Coke is in Atlanta.

That's the second time today I've seen that "naked" statue from Norway in a TR. I don't think I've ever seen it in person.

You'll have to check it out on your upcoming visit.

I think the China hat picture is the best one yet. The guys look so serious with their bowing.

They were cracking me up; I had to take a couple shots becasue I was laughing so hard.

Bummer for the last meal with friends. And yuck to the screaming baby. But at least he calmed down and you had a good meal.

The meal was very good, although sad.

Great pictures with Pooh and Tigger. I don't think a lot of people even know that Meet & Greet is there. I've never seen a line.
I've only seen a line once and that was during a downpour.

Yep, definitely tears and this time I started shedding them first. I hate saying goodbye. And now that I don't know if we're taking an April business trip, it's going to be a longggggggggggggggggggggg time until August.

You should check often as you never know when that "discount" will pop up.

Love, love love the group funny hat pics. The teeny sombreros are priceless. Great photos of Living with the Land. I never knew they decorated for Christmas.

I thought the teeny sombreros were much funnier than the oversized ones. Being our first Christmas trip, I didn't know they decorated in The Land either...and I'd never seen pictures prior to that.

Teppan Edo looks great. One of these days we'll get there.

With all the sit downs you do, I'm surprised you haven't hit it. It's very good.

I'm so sorry that you had to say goodbye to friends, but what memories you made!
We made the best of memories on this trip.

Can you post a link to Nicki's food TR?? I haven't read any of her reviews and I would love to!
The problem is I can never have enough time with my little sis. I see that you got the link for her dining review.

Thanks, Rosie. I knew you had been at TE several times and always enjoyed. I was NOT impressed with the dessert menu at all.

I'm sure I could sneak one to you...with as many people as are being invited, what the heck is 4 (or 5) more.

Awesome! Nice job!

Thank you sir.

Too bad you couldn't get Des to drink the Beverly. You need to get Mark to try the DISDads Beverly challenge. He'd probably win it. I think the record is somewhere around 18 cups.

Yuck! Did Andy (afwdwfan) win that????

I'm sorry for the screaming kid at lunch. I know there is nothing you can do but the parents should of tried something to calm him/her down. Glad you liked Teppan Edo though. I really would like to get back there someday to eat. We had a really good meal there and the kids had a great time.

I totally understand tired or cranky children (I had my own), but this was out of control at one point. We really did enjoy our meal there.

I'm kinda disappointed there are no crying pictures of you and Nicki.
I'll be sure to have Mark take some the next time I have to say goodbye to her...just for you.

I'll finish up responses after dinner; have to get a fax out and then head for the train.
