Thank you, you too.

I was headed to bed when I noticed a new post on the September FB group. After following advice in it, we were able to customize our Magic Bands. Mine will be green, David (DH)'s orange, Joey's blue, JM's red.

We love going the 1st week in September but I really want to get back sometime during December to enjoy the decorations!!



You all will have such a great time!!! I think POFQ was a great choice!! Were you still able to get FD?
We're actually at POR and yes, we got free dining! Soooo happy! We were just going to stay at POP and upgrade the dining but now staying at POR with regular dining is only a $20 difference! Yay!

Great pics!! Sorry,can't remember, are you doing a CBR/BC split stay? Why is the blue screen up at BC . I haven't heard anything going on there?

We leave tomorrow for wdw

Janet yes!!!! I really need to save some $$$ for wdw spending, lol! But our only boutique where we live that sold any Brighton has just closed no Brighton Stores in Canada. Boo!! So I have to get my fill when we come down to Lauderdale. Happily there's on close to my moms Assisted Living residence.

Pas I lied! I really tried not to go into that Festival Flee Market one last time. But I did yesterday on the way back to our hotel What can I say? I had to go to Costco for gas for our drive up to wdw, and my car just turned into the Festival parking lot! Don't know how that happened

Updates
So here we are, our last day in Ft Lauderdale, Deerfield Beach. How can we have been here 9 days already? Is it possible? I hate that time goes way to fast on vacay.
We are out by the pool, laundry is in the machine. So laundry & packing day today! But happy packing, cause next stop, Wdw!! Yahoo.

I know I've missed some posts, so hard to keep track, ESP on vacay. So to all I missed, hi

Sue - that first pic looks to be GF not BC. :-)

I am wondering if I could talk my girlfriends into doing F&W with me for like a long weekend or something, maybe 2014...?

Good morning to all.

Trisha: Thanks for the pics!

Candace: Yay for buying tickets! (And, if you change your mind -- like if you want to add days or something -- as long as the package is unopened... you can return/exchange them. UT rocks.)

~~==============~~

Just found out who Miss M's first grade teacher is going to be -- and it seems like she's not with any of her Girl Scout friends. Eep. I have a feeling someone's going to be a very unhappy little person come "Meet the Teacher" day. I'm hoping there's at least one person she was friendly with from last year in her new class.

DS just started 1st grade today. He knows most of the kids in his class, but not too many really good friends. However, he didn't seem too concerned with the fact! :-)

Wow we start after Labor Day!

My son was like that too, friends with whoever sitting next to him


Enjoy, my DS will be in 11th! I miss the fun of elementary school.

For all you moms with back to school time, have fun! Hope all goes well.

You now will have more time to RC

Definitely a fabulous idea ...too bad I've a little one to care for everyday...And it would be her first full week of preK ...If the SW tkt was later into Sept and I could have built it over a weekend, then it might (although still slim) have been possible. That darn SW tkt just does not want to cooperate. Reminding myself of the extreme heat and humidity early to mid-Sept was somewhat comforting.

Hello all! Just relaxing waiting for DH to get home...trying to catch up!

Iheart: I hope your trip continued to get better! I am glad the BC staff made your crew feel special! Loved it there.

Pas: I don't know if I could stomach $1100 a night either, but CSR sounds good too! The thread about bringing a blow up mattress has me thinking naughty thoughts about staying at CSR! I don't think I could cheat Disney though, bad karma!

SueM: Wow you are right, 9 days has flown by! Can't wait to hear your updates from WDW! How is your knee holding up?

Amanda: We are going the same time in November!

Miss: Sorry to hear Miss M doesn't have any BFF's in her class. That is hard. Hopefully she will pal up with someone quickly! She is such a cute munchkin. Kiddos here don't go back until Sept 3, and they find out their teachers on Aug 30. We are counting down the days.

Melissa: Thanks for checking for me! You are the bestest!

JanetB: Hope the Disney blues goes away soon, I hate that about WDW vacations. It can be pretty depressing!

Christine: So you look after your DGD full time? What a great Nana you are! That must be a huge help. Sorry a trip to WDW did not work out for you all!

Trish: Wow....11th grade? I am sure time must fly. I still can't believe I have DD's in 4th, 2nd and SK!

DH is home, I will check back later ladies!

JEn

Hey girls!

It's our last full day here but we are loving it at Kidani. We spent most of yesterday at the pool here and the kiddos went nuts for the splash ground!

Today we hung around at Jambo. Had a nice lunch from Mara by the pool. It is gorgeous overe there too!

I can't believe I'm saying it but I think I like DVC more than CL. It was so nice to wash all of our clothes and do a little light cooking. Also, the space just can't be beat. The 1 bedroom is HUGE and beautiful!

I'm glad I booked std though. I just haven't seen enough animals on the savannah to justify the extra cost. Though we have enjoyed going to all to viewing areas to check it out. We did see some zebras and giraffes once for a few minutes, but other than that not a whole lot of action. Maybe we are just hitting the wrong times?

Will check back in from home over the weekend.

Sue - you are so close! Glad your first leg of your trip has gone well

Later!
