We had assembled some shelves over the weekend to get some of the boxes up off the floor. I was slightly familiar with what was written on the boxes since I had just seen them and held them in my hand. Well yesterday we opened a box up and Fran says, "Oh Good! It's my Cousin Hewet Tombstone!"

I said to her, "Why did you buy two of them?" She appeared confused, and I explained that when we were putting the packages on the shelves, I specifically remembered moving a package labeled, "Cousin Hewet Tombstone".

We were already planning another trip over to 1st street to bring another load of loot over there, so we made sure to bring scissors, tape and a marker with us. Well after cutting open the boxes and removing all the bubble wrap (these things are usually packed pretty well), what do we find???

Jack Sparrow's Tombstone!

Of course we don't want to confuse that with the Brother Dave tombstone that we already have!

Only in our house.
I want to live with you & Fran.

She has saved searches on ebay for "Haunted Mansion", "Cars", POTC", and "Star Wars", she has others, but those are her main ones. She is going to make our Theater room the Haunted Mansion room, because the Tombstones will make for good ambient lighting while we are watching movies. She also received her first sample of the Haunted Mansion Wallpaper, she has ordered enough of that in case Disney revokes the patent on the company selling it, we will have enough to cover the room.

Ever since it opened, we have visited there. At DLR all the candy shops have caramel treats, at WDW none of the candy shops have the caramel marshmallow things or anything with caramel, you have to go to Karamel Kuche. Major bummer for us since I love the caramel marshmallow treats, we normally hit Marceline's on our way in or out of the parks and get some.

And yeah, I would have thought kids weren't allowed or if they had them on the tour at least keep them within your group, not next to the one person who wasn't with everyone. I was nice, but didn't share any of my thoughts on unattended, unpoliced kids! Which are not very nice, think Hansel and Gretel!

You will love DLR, EVERY Candy store has stuff almost as good as that, but not the salted caramel.

You are so funny! Can you clean things? That's what we need.

We could wake you up when you fall asleep on the whatever so that you could go to bed, but we would have no room for your DH or sons, so you would be forced to leave them at home!

The tombstone story is too funny. Maybe you need to start a log of all your fabulous items

I see a few of my favorite caramel/marshmallow pinwheels!

I am glad that you made the culinary tour. Now I want to eat at Jiko again just for the bread service. When I did the culinary tour in 2009, we just did the Boma part. I hear you about unsupervised kids. After teaching elementary school in the past, I have very little tolerance for misbehaving kids.

I am not too keen on caramel unless it is in my coffee. Zebra Domes however are a different story.

All of the treats at the Karamell-Kuche looked very appetizing.

Nice to hear that you were able to make it in time for the tour and show all those photos from the tour.

Very nice update.

Great update. The tours look super neat. Next time, I'll remember them. I love Saana's bread service.

Will I be kicked out of the club if I say I don't love Zebra Domes?

The Zebra Domes were good, but I have to say I enjoyed my treats from Karamel-Kuche more than I did the ZDs. No one gets kicked out of the club for that, it just means more for the ones who really do like them!

We've had the bread service the two times that we did the Wanyama Safari. I knew that it was really good. It wouldn't have been as bad if the adults put the kid between them. I mean the whole group was all together so it would have made sense that they lined up at the counter with the kid surrounded by two adults, not all the adults together and the kid on the end with the stranger.

The thing that I really like about DLR is that you can get caramel marshmallow treats at all the candy stores. Marcelline's or the one at the end of Buena Vista Street, Pooh Corner or the shop on Main Street. I am really bummmed because they have discontinued two of my favorite DLR treats, the Cheshire Tails and the Caramel Marshmallow sticks coated in chocolate.

I get to go back in two weeks and get some more when we meet Jenny out there for her birthday!

We missed the Karamel-Kuche on this last trip. I offered but the kids weren't into it. I think F&W did us in. Next time we'll save room. Every time I see the treats I could kick myself for at least not bringing anything home.

We make another stop later because I wanted to bring treats home and we actually ate quite a few of these before our last day!
