Thankfully both walked away but DW has been in going to physiotherapy and treatments for 2 months. I agree with the message but.....three hours seems a little excessive. Lol

Evening Guys,

Made it about 500 miles today, stopped in some place called Drums Pennsylvania. It will make for a longer drive tomorrow, about 750 miles; hopefully we will make it back tomorrow night. The going was bit slower today with having to get the brakes fixed and a ton of slow moving traffic until we got off the 95 south of Washington.

I talked to DW tonight and she says she has a plan for a July trip to WDW. Should I be scared?

Quick Trip Report:

Weather at the beach - sucked. Cold Windy with a little rain. (thanks Brian )

Spent a Day at MK - HOLY CROWDED! 11's on the crowd calendar. They were at a Phase 3 shutdown at MK the day we were there. Forced me to cancel my ADR at 'Ohana because I wouldn't be let back in if we left the park!

Had a Solo EPCOT Day - HOLY CROWDED!! Did a few things I've never done before...Explored Mexico Pavilion - Saw the Voices of Liberty and the American Adventure Show.....Saw O'Canada. - O Why?!? (darn you Brian) - Rode Journey into Imagination (it was the only ride that was a walk-on). Waited 20 minutes in line for Spaceship Earth! Saw the food booths - enjoyed the food from the food booths!


I'd like to say it's glad to be back, but it isn't. Mondays suck!

Prayers to those that need them....Welcome! To all the new members.

Hey Scott, what day did you do EPCOT?

Driving or flying? Might need to look at that camper thing. CJ has a hook up ready for us in his front yard.

We went when my youngest was 15 months. She had fun, but was still scared of the characters. Certainly the way to start him off right.

We are back from the Gift Auction, we didn't win the Disney tickets or the Lobsters, spent a combined total of $140 (with Dis tickets, 50/50, Birthdayboard) so what did we win

- 4 tickets to Adventure Aquarium - $100
- 3 tickets for a tour of a Mine - $60
- 2 VIP tickets for Battleship NJ tour - $44
- 2 $25 GC to 2 different restaurants- $50
- 2 folding lawn chairs - ??
- 18 inch Charcoal grille - ??
- 6pk of Beach House Beer - $8
- A huge painting professionally framed and matted with COA - ??

All in all not a bad take, plus I think my son will really enjoy The Battleship & the Mine, since that is all boy stuff there

anyways...

Reminds me of the car commercial where the dad changes the subject and has the car play wheels on the bus.

Being that I don't carry a cell phone, it was definitely excessive for me!

That's a fun age to take them. Take full advantage of the rider switch on the "big kid" rides.

Awesome seats. Looks like a fun night if not for the annoying drunk guys.

You mean Stewart in UK? No - I looked for him, but he must have been off that day.

Seems counter-intuitive. If the brakes don't work, that means you get to go faster, because there is nothing to slow you down. Why bother getting them fixed?

8 months? Seems a bit...old...for a first trip to WDW, doesn't it?
Our daughter's first trip was when she was 7 weeks (but to be fair, we had the entire trip booked months in advance, then got notice that we were getting a newborn foster child. We arranged everything with the state to be able to take her with us. The adoption was finalized a few months after that). Our older son had to wait until his first birthday for his first trip - a mistake we didn't make with our youngest, who had 3 trips in before he turned 1.

So DW gets home last night from picking up DD from theater class. She comes in the house, makes sure the kids aren't looking, slugs me in the shoulder and says "I blame you." Immediately, my mind begins racing through all of the things that she might have found out, but I can't think of any that are bad. I ask what I did, and she says my daughter is now quoting lines from the Jungle Cruise. As they pull into the driveway, my wife stops at the side door to the house and tells DD to get out. DD says "That was rude. Please get out."
