Hi guys! I hope everyone has a great mother's day. I will try to get to replies later tonight, but I've got a pretty full day ahead of me!

Have a great one!

Happy Mother's Day!

Thanks for sharing the prom pictures, they all look great. (My younger brother recently had his senior prom, and he and his date look so awkward in all their photos, so it's nice to see someone got some good shots.)


Those ducks look adorable! Oh, I would've sat and stared at them all afternoon...And I'm glad that all the little ones managed to make it out of the pool. Whenever you see a mama animal with her babies, there's usually always that one that lags behind. Ironically enough, when a wild cat had kittens by my house, I ended up taking the straggler because she was left out in the rain and now she's one of my fur babies of 4 years. I don't think you could've gotten away with that, though. Airport security might've had a word or two to say to you if you did..

Hi ladies! I'm sorry for falling so far behind. Too much life, I tell you. And you don't have to respond to all my ramblings. I have to work in an order, otherwise I get confused. Hehehe.

Hahahaha. A sherpa that can't close their bag. That's hilarious. I stopped allowing people to let me be the sherpa.

VWL is one of the resorts that we've had ownership in the longest. And yet I've only stayed there once. Gotta change that for sure.

YES! The lack of storage in the bathroom is exactly the problem with having an accessible bathroom! I've gotten them twice in recent years. And I have a lot of bathroom products! Coffee table movement.....hmmm......

YAY! Drunk little cucumber!!!! The cucumber bits on the bottom soaked in margarita are the best part.

There is a connection with alcohol and food tasting different for sure. My brother used to tell me that all the time when he was a server. He said it's actually best, if you're not a wine drinker, to stick with water at meals because you'll taste everything.

Nice liquor store!

Correction. You were greeted by a deer butt......

Dumbotown! Haha. Cause seriously.....it is.

New Dumbo is short, isn't it? Man. You get all hyped up and then BAM! It's done.

I'm the opposite on trips. My photo documenting skills are excellent at first. And then they drop off along the way.

Haha. Cynthia, your aunt did what my parents constantly did to us, with trying to embarrass. Which is why my brother and I pass that on to the kids now. We torment them endlessly. Hehehe.

That was a great video tribute. Very touching.

I love the meet and greets at Storybook Circus. We didn't encounter lines there over Thanksgiving either.

Yes.....skinny girl wine tastes like crap.

The seminar sounds really cool. I always look at them when we go to F&W, but never end up booking anything.

Mmmm. F&W adventuring. My favorite kind.

Cynthia, you're not a dork doing research on the F&W items you want to try! I always do that before I go down.

Your home version of the sauce looks great!

Hahahahaha. A little too much imbibing, huh? Nice "doggy" pictures.

Soarin' FP mojo!

What a fun rest of the night you had. I love being with large groups of people. It's part of why I'm so looking forward to our summer trip.

Yes, that used to be Discovery Island. We used to go there all the time back in the day.

I'm so glad you were able to have that moment with Tracy. Even though your update didn't turn out how you wanted in the end, you were able to spend time with her.

That was definitely a big DISmeet. And pictures to prove it!

AWESOME! You guys were April, May, and June. I love it.

Nice fireworks pics! I haven't seen Hallowishes in years.

Cool that you did a preview to Enchanted Tales with Belle. We didn't do that over Thanksgiving because the line was just crazy.

All right! I'll do more catching up later, even though I know you've pretty much come to the end.

Just to let you know, my cooking yesterday was successful! I made ice cream from a 1750s cookbook, the strawberry ice cream was a big hit! The day was very exhausting, i came home had a drink & conked out. Oh blissful sleep!

Hello ladies! I am finally caught up with your TR (I have just not had time or energy for DISing this past week at all.)

First, let me wish you both a Happy Mother's Day. Cynthia, I hope that you managed to eek a little bit of time for yourself with your family in all of your craziness and must do's today.

MEK I am SOOO Glad that you have a new job in the wind AND that your June trip is back on. I was so disappointed when I read it was looking cancelled.

You both have such great photos from Epcot for your last day. those kiosk foods look awesome. That Kerry gold / Irish plate looks just like the Fisherman's Lunch that is served at Granny McCarthy's tea room up by me. Its my hands down favorite.

I have no guesses on tee's - I have to go back and look at them all over. I've been popping on and off the boards today in between groceries, dinner, and putting together a gazebo on the deck. (yes, restful mother's day, right? )

MEK LOVE LOVE the prom pictures. Nick looks so very handsome, and his date's dress is amazing. love that layered look this year - so stylish and pretty. Glad to see that she picked something elegant.

Love the ducks ...so cute.

Glad I got to scroll through the pictures before heading off to school this morning.
Sweet prom pictures.
Cute ducks and duck story.
Love the resort pictures, of course.

Hope you had a very nice Mother's Day weekend!

Just gorgeous and wow, Nick really does look like you! Kendall enjoyed checking out Nick's dates dress, it was fun actually at dinner after her soccer game we were looking at Nick's pictures, Patricia's Emily and a whole host of other girls and checking out the dresses

Most times when you say good bye to your friends you know you will see them again soon. But DIS friends come from far and wide and Cynthia and I are about as geographically displaced as possible. So saying goodbye to Cynthia meant the likelihood of seeing her anytime soon is very small. I think that's what makes saying good-bye hard. But the good news is we have our eye on a girl's trip in May 2014. Hopefully that will come to fruition. I know once I activate my AP in June I will definitely be in for a May trip!

So I went back up to the room with Cynthia as she finished her last minute packing. I will say this - she is a much more efficient packer than I could ever hope to be. So efficient that I apparently never saw the T-shirts she post. She was packed in no time and spent her final moments fighting with the online check-in at Alaska Airlines. I walked her down to the ME stop just as a bus arrived and we said our final goodbyes (or see you not real sons).
Was it Nick or Brian that was calling it creepy?

I do look FAR too happy in that picture. Seems the wine at the kiosks and then the poolside cocktail momentarily were keeping my sadness at bay



Still though I was in a great mood. Even though I was leaving, I was relaxed, it has been a great trip and a great day and I wasn't feeling any of the "oh I didn't make it to xxx" frustrations that can happen at the end of a trip sometimes. Not to mention my mind was plotting adding on...which was already planned anyway...but the scope was changing for sure.

I'll be activating my PAP in Dec so will have to get at least one more trip on it...May works pretty darn well if you ask me!

I remember you texting me a picture of those ducks, SO cute!

Such a sad moment to have Cynthia leave.....

Ducklings are super cute!

The BW is amazing! I love all the pictures you got. I want to stay there some time... really really bad.

Love all your pictures!!!
I was sad that's for sure (despite how I look in the picture)

I was totally rooting for the little duckie. How adorable.

The BW resort is so beautiful. Love your photo tour of not only BW but BC and the Crescent Lake area! It is just so scenic.

You looked lovely for your evening out and about.

Cynthia: You look way too happy to be leaving WDW!

Sorry about the knuckle-head co-worker and the associated stress.

Wishing you both a Happy Mother's Day this Sunday!!!
I do look way too happy, what is up with that? I hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day as well Brenda!

Mary Ellen - Beautiful prom pictures! Nick looks so sharp, and I just love his date's dress! It's so pretty! I bet you were camera happy that day!
I bet saying goodbye to a Dis friend from the other side of the country would be hard, I'm glad to hear you're thinking of a girls' trip next year! That always makes the goodbyes easier.
Those duckies are SO CUTE! I'm almost positive that a mother bird will not reject a baby like that. We found a baby sparrow in our yard once and we researched it. We put it back in the nest and all was good! Thanks for the compliment btw, but you did get some nice pictures of them! (On a related note, I'm thinking of giving some fun "photography 101" lessons in my PTR. Any thoughts?)
I enjoy your picture OCD because it allows me to enjoy all the resorts you visit! BWI is just gorgeous. So is BC for that matter!
Maybe it's insecurity, there is definitely paranoia so he may have baggage, I don't know. He is new to our company so too early to tell the root of it or how much of an issue it will really be.

Great prom pics!

Saying goodbye to DIS friends at the end of a trip does stink. So happy to hear you are planning another trip!!

Cynthia- sorry for your bad day. Why do people have to be soooo annoying?

Hope you both have a great Mother's Day!!!!
Why do they have to be so annoying??? I don't know. Hopefully this week goes better with him, I'll know a lot more by EOD tomorrow....

It was very sad to leave

OH MY GOODNESS... that duck story is the cutest thing ever! If I had been at that pool, I would have been the fourth person watching.

Your pictures of the Epcot resort area are so gorgeous! I just love that area. MUST STAY THERE.
I was sad to leave and hope May 2014 works out too! Only a year away....

I don't think imbibing had a thing to do with our doggy picture...not sure what that says about Pat and myself but....

I'm really glad I tried the sauce at home, we've had it several times since.

Thanks Mary Ellen, we did get a very short hike/walk in which made me happy and there were lots of nice moments all day.

I am behind everywhere and need to get cracking on my TR if I want it wrapped up in 8 days

Mine wasn't restful either but it was nice, I hope some of that was things you wanted to be doing (gazebo maybe?) the groceries and dinner part...not so much.
