sounds like you had a fun "down" day - though I agree that with a group the price of movies gets out of control!

Good job out of you going for a run. I only run when chased so can not relate

and congrats on single digits until your next trip!

I know, planking children! Where else can you see that, right? They love it too! I'm not kidding, we would plank, and both of the boys were like "I want to do that!!!"

It was a really great day. I love that we had the opportunity to have it.

A resort and pool day sounds perfect. I love that you can have a BBQ at the treehouses.

Great pool pics. I'm all for dunking the children- we do what we have to do for a good TR
Well, I wouldn't say dedicated.

We loved the BBQ feature at the Treehouse Villas. When we booked it, my Mom made it very clear that she wanted to use the grill while we were there. And of course, none of us are going to say no to barbecue!

I will do pretty much anything for the sake of a TR.

Love the Littles' planks. When I plank (almost never) I tend to look more like Joaquin.
Man, I respect you guys going for a run on vacation! I would probably get lost too (although in disney I tend to have the best sense of direction!)
Love all the under water pics, so much fun!

Girl, no worries. I've totally done that before!

This is generally how Jeni and I feel about planking.

That slide looks so fun!!

UNDERWATER PHOTOBOMB!!

Love the minions so much! They're hilarious.
Ugh, I need the warmth too. It's been like -20 here for a few days. I can't take it anymore.

The underwater photobomb was incredible. I loved it.

The minions are the best!

How did I miss your last update? Those underwater pictures are hysterical. Glad you had your underwater camera. Sounds like a great day to just kick back and relax.

I can't believe you went running in the blazing heat? Now THATS cray cray!

You - you guys totally set yourself up for minion chat!
Yay! I'm so excited. The next few work days are going to be excruciating!

No worries, I've totally missed updates before! The underwater camera came in so handy. And believe me, it's not done yet.

I know! We have issues.

We did totally set ourselves up for minion chat.

I'm used to paying for myself only, but having to pay for four plus snacks is insane!

Hahaha, running only when chased huh? I used to think I was that way, but I'm surprised I love it so much.

Oh man, good for you guys for exercising on the trip! I consider walking in the parks exercise, haha. I've never attempted a plank before. I'm kind of intimidated and don't know if I can do it for very long! Too bad Joaquin's way isn't the right way!

Yay for your upcoming trip! AND MINE TOO! Haha.

How exciting!! At least, no matter what, it's warmer in Disney! And driving, you don't have to worry about trying to pack light! When flying, I refuse to wear a heavy coat JUST for the walk/ride from the parking lot to the airport...consequently, upon our return home last week I froze my buns and feet off at MDW!!
What's your forecast look like?

Yeah single digits!!!!

The kids planking are too cute, gotta give them credit for trying!

Keeping fingers crossed for good weather while you are here. It looks pretty good, 60's during the days and cooling off at night. The last couple of days have been cold (okay cold for Orlando)! I actually had to wear a jacket .

I normally consider walking in the parks exercise too! I've just reached a point in my fitness journey that I feel that's not cutting it anymore......

I can't believe we are missing each other by a few hours! Ugh, that kills me!

That's what I tell myself every time I leave the Chicagoland area....which I am sure you are more than familiar with.

I'm the same way! I hate having to wear a coat when I know I'm going somewhere warmer, but then the smart person in me comes out and goes "you have to get back to your car you know..."

The forecast has been changing a bit. The other day it said mid 70's throughout the week. Now it's mid 60's. I'm sure it will keep going back and forth. I'm prepared for all options though.

At least we have kiddos that want to work out, right?!

If I could live in Florida, I would. And I'd be just like all of the other Floridians, complaining about the fact that it's cold when it's about 40 degrees. I'm down with that. Sadly, I live in Illinois and still get miffed when people complain about cold weather in warm states. We'll attribute that to my bitterness. Hahaha!

.....
Please don't be miffed! I grew up in Indiana so I had a 30 years of dealing with snow, ice and people complaining in warm states about 40 degree weather. Decided it would be a good idea to move to Louisiana, guess what the first year I was there it snowed. So 10 years later I finally convinced my DH that we needed to be in Florida where it is warm in the winter, moved this April to Orlando and wouldnt you know it first winter here and its 35 degrees. I told him the next stop is Jamaica!!!!

Yay! So close. I know it was awesome for us to touch down in 80* weather and sunshine after the brutal cold we had this past week. If I don't get to say so before you leave, have a wonderful vacation and enjoy the sunshine!!!

I"m so behind but I want to comment on the updates I've read so far.

Oh my gosh, Ariel's outfit is scandalous!! Holy crap, that's showing a lot of skin. I mean, I get it but sheesh!

I totally get the same way about being late for a dining reservation but rightfully so! One time they actually GAVE OUR RESERVATION AWAY because we were 20 mins late. It wasn't even our fault, we got stuck on Splash Mountain. And the worst part was, it was for Liberty Tree Tavern! Not even someplace spectacular. Supposedly, they only hold it for 15 mins past but it looks like that wasn't the case with your reservation so GOOD!

Yay for alcohol in the MK!
