If ever this grand plan comes to fruition, you are the designated ressie holder! Although, if Linda were to co-chair this position with you... we could stay at ALL the resorts!

Thank you. Kinda what I had suspected, it's some sort of contact allergy. She's given me a referral to see the allergist if it doesn't clear up in a week.

Nope, those ARE creepy chairs! Hahahaha. When we visited the lobby in January, I told my daughter to go "sit on the freaky chairs" so I could get a picture.
Hmmm...what do these creepy, freaky chairs look like? I've never ventured over to the Boardwalk!

ALL the resorts .... you are giving me way too much credit ... I do know how to do a great split!

Speaking of splits .... I'm feeling sort of sad because our Sept trip we are only doing a 2 way split .... just doesn't seem right .... I'm sure I need another resort in there somewhere!!!

If only DH would allow a split and forget the dining plan nonsense. :-) I'm sure we'd save some money :-)

I would love to do at least a 5/3 split between CBR pirate room and a deluxe like CR or Poly...in my dream world, we'd even do CL! :-) FWIW I think Poly club level is a bit cheaper than CR? That would be an awesome anniversary!! :-) but alas I don't think that's going to happen...

That's awesome

How's this going??? Any better?

The weekend went by fast, but we managed to find lots of happy time together.
Sounds like a GREAT time!!!

Love this place!!! Especially the view!!! Can't wait to see the updated CG

Do you mean 5 resorts or 3 resorts?!! I'm not up on the "Split Lingo"....I need explicit details


Looks like rain on and off today which is fine. Getting ready to do some painting! Not like arts n' crafts painting....I mean paint the interior walls painting!! After 12 years, the kitchen and den are looking a bit dingy to say the least.

Just had to pop on to say I love those chairs and the pool best themed of all IMO. Now I want to scrap the Poly especially reading about the Tour Groups and roaches taking up residence

There are so many things just plain wrong about the Boardwalk, lol!!!

We didn't hop on a plane....we looked at airfare and it was just too expensive. that's ok!

Sheila - don't change Poly!!! You've got to give it a shot. The tour group thing would stink, but I guess that could happen anywhere, right? And the roach thing....I'm thinking while that poster was gazing at the fireworks from her balcony, she left her door open allowing mr roachy face (er, palmetto bug ) to fly right in.

This would be a PERFECT location for an RC-Diva trip! Oh my, could you imagine?! We'd all plan to be there but wind up at different resorts anyway from all the changing.



I'm just trying to stay sane, honestly. That's about all I've got time for.

Hubbo -- who's in Seattle at the moment -- said it's funny how they're all complaining about the heat. Then I reminded him how it was for us when we lived overseas with no AC. He said, "Yeah. I know exactly how they feel." Luckily his hotel has AC but the university buildings don't.



No worries about not having the right tags. If you're unsure of whether changing the luggage tags they sent you will work: Just take your luggage receipt sticker-thingies you get from the airlines down to the DME desk, they'll retrieve your luggage from those.


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

Kiddo's all blotchy again. I'm totally perplexed what this could be from. Thought it was the bugspray but she hasn't had that on her since the first time she broke out. Taking her to the doc's later on. I think it bothers me more than her... other than her scratching it occasionally. Ah, the mysteries of children. Keeps us on our toes.
Hope she feels better soon!

If ever this grand plan comes to fruition, you are the designated ressie holder! Although, if Linda were to co-chair this position with you... we could stay at ALL the resorts!



Thank you. Kinda what I had suspected, it's some sort of contact allergy. She's given me a referral to see the allergist if it doesn't clear up in a week.



Nope, those ARE creepy chairs! Hahahaha. When we visited the lobby in January, I told my daughter to go "sit on the freaky chairs" so I could get a picture.
Glad I'm not the only one who thinks they are creepy chairs!!

I'm just a 3 hr drive from Seattle, the thing is, we've had a cool, wet June then bam!!!! Conditions go from that to hot, sunny and soaring temps to 90 over night! We are all shell shocked here I look at it as getting ready for Florida!!!

Sheila, there will always be a negative review about any resort.... and as MM posted, it could be palmetto bugs NOT roaches...keep the POLY, this is YOUR time to try this resort... you have always wanted to stay there! Just do it!

A bit about the wedding. There were three of us that were good friends while our husbands were stationed in Germany. We each had two babies there, and had a lovely friendship. Fast forward...ummm...Yikes..30 years, and those little ones are all grown up and getting married. This wedding was for one of those children. Such fun! The weekend went by fast, but we managed to find lots of happy time together.
Ginny, welcome back! We missed ya! How nice that you stayed friends all these years. It must of been so great to be back together again.

Awesome!! My Mom can't travel by herself anymore (she has parkinson's and lives in Assisted living... she's 83). Enjoy those visits together, and make those memories.... life is too short.
