Mmmmmmm..... Akershus. Such yummy food. We've done both breakfast and lunch there (not on the same day.) Can't wait to see what you ate.

Alli - thanks for sharing your photos! Hope to see some more!

I have fallen way behind AGAIN! D~, I am not sure exactly WHEN you make thread of the month...but it is bound to happen, I just know it!

WELCOME ALLI!!! I was in your first Dismeet group in March of last year! We just hated that we didn't all get to spend more time together that night...but it had been a long day for all us of. Your pictures are FABULOUS! You and V and your mom are all so artistically talented!

Okay, back to comments for D~...

You made me SO HOMESICK for POR with your Riverside Mill pictures. That round table in the corner by the water wheel tht you all sat at? SAME TABLE we sat and had our very first Disney meal at last March!!! Remember this picture?



Taken at the VERY SAME TABLE!!!

Yep, I miss my POR! I fear that since we are not going this year, and we are taking the cruise next year that by the time we go back to WDW our family will have outgrown the room at POR. Gabe will be 9 or 10 years old by the time we go back!

So, in your Dismeet picture from last March....I look like I am flipping someone off. Must have been a longer day than even I remember.

Oh, and Liddy had her baby quite some time ago. Have you not seen the pics on FB? She had a beautiful baby boy!

I'm with you...don't like the new Test Track; much prefer the old one.

Love V trying on all the hats...very cute.

Sorry Alli lost her sunglasses.

You look good in your witches hat (and I mean that in the best way ).

I'm curious to see what you think of your lunch at Akershus (Mark and I were not fans back in 2007).

And yes, it ws hot. It was very hot.

Another fun update! I NEED that Minnie witch hat lol! I love that you guys use the single rider line. We do too! It seems like you hardly ever hear of anyone doing that, but it's a real time saver!

I've actually been feeling pretty good. Just got busy with school starting, cleaning, getting things ready for James and Sarah's birthday party (they are now 3 and 5!!), Jeremy's first Cub Scout Meet and now getting Sarah's Girl Scout Troop formed (that's happening tonight!!) I do get tired faster but that is to be expected so I've been trying really hard to go to bed earlier and not nap in the middle of the day so I can. Plus now Jeremy get's off school at 2 pm so there went my prime napping time!! He get's home, empties his backpack, eats his snack, does homework and then cleans up the living room for me. He's become such a big help!! Only one not too happy about having another boy is Sarah. She still says she hopes it's a girl!!!

D~ this will have to be my daily routine as well now.

I'm not a fan of the new TT only because I'm not into the design aspect of the car.

See? That headgear opens doors!! They really are adorable!

I prefer the front row for Soarin' as well... kinda ruins the scene when you see feet hanging in your line of vision.

Bummer that Alli lost her sunglasses.

Can't wait to see how Akershus worked out.

I tried to post from my kindle yesterday but it kept messing up. Using my phone now, so no quotes. Welcome Allison. I loved the pic of the back of the castle. We see so many pics of the front!
I was going to ask why you didn't take the boat back to FQ, but I are you already answered that one.
Glad you enjoyed the pasta bar!
We are at Caribbean Beach and have fallen in love with this resort! We are at the pool right now, but will be going to the dessert party tonight. Looking forward to the fireworks!

First off - Beautiful Pictures, Allison!

Great update and I can't wait to see what happens at lunch.

We just went on a mad hunt for a couple of pieces of clothing DH wants to take with him and I took a page from your planning. Our luggage is now in "his" room (the room with his RPGs, drafting table and action figures) with the stuff we know we are taking but don't need in the next week. I don't think we'll get to the massive pile you had, but then again it's just me and him and neither of us are teenaged girls.

LOL - totally understand... I have the same problem with the parks. I am afraid to stay at another resort - or I know I will have a problem with those too. LOL

Oh, no, hope you didn't have rain at Epcot!
LOL - I totally understand that need. The girls didn't understand - WHILE we were in Disney - why I had to have Stacey on the TV all the time. LOL

I don't remember looking at the price - but I just HAD to try it on... It was super cool. I had NO idea how I would get it home though. It was huge - and I don't think it would fold down?

Welcome back!!!!!!!!! I am so happy to see you! So sorry you are sick... Victoria came home from our trip under the weather too... cold/congested cough/plugged ears - but she started symptoms on the plane - so I think she picked it up in Disney? Even yesterday - she was still complaining that her ears hadn't popped yet. I sure hope you are feeling better soon.

I hope you are able to get everything done! And feel better!

Yah - it's OK though... I figure that if we couldn't ride it twice, at least we could pass on the pixie dust and let someone else use them.

How awesome is that? Seriously... V picked the table - and it was right near the fountain drink refill station... I was like - wait a minute - if we are going to eat here, we must have a table with a view... So, I made the girls move to that table. LOL It was so pretty!

Yes, the single rider is SUCH a time saver... And I certainly did NOT want to waste time in the new TT line - especially after we had experienced it and decided that we didn't like it nearly as much as we used to. So sad about that.

Hahaha... That was a scary pile for a while there - I didn't think we'd get it all in. It did help that it was summer, so all we needed to pack was shorts and tank tops - so they took up very little room. Good luck getting everything packed!

Very cute spelling... I just love Sarah's triplets - they are so adorable! That's the third set of triplet parents I have posting in my TR (Mo's and Dee's too). How cool is that?

************************************************** ********

Yesterday was a Target day... I went in a little early to do a bit of shopping... They had the perfect color tank top for one of my planned outfits for our next trip - on clearance. So I had to get it. Then a couple pairs of jammie shorts.

I was super busy all day, setting end caps - so my day went by very quickly. Which is how I like it.

The girls met me at work after school, and we grabbed a few more things - frozen pizzas for dinner, and a couple of groceries we needed around the house.

When we were at home, Josh called to tell me not to make dinner - he was taking us out. Whoo-hoo! We NEVER eat out on week days. So, we went out for Chinese... It was good - and I didn't eat much - but whoa! I left stuffed... I hate that feeling.

So, I forced myself to go for a walk last night - which I hate doing, because I DESPISE the hills in town - and they are unavoidable. But I did it anyway, and I felt better after.

Today I will be working on the last little bit of my applique for my current custom order. Then I plan to start some pre-assembly, and hopefully the final assembly. With any luck - I hope to finish this afternoon.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! My thoughts and prayers are with you all!

Day 5 Part B

We were almost to our lunch ADR - Akershus... We have never eaten there before - and this was a last minute addition to our schedule. As most of you know from my PTR - I really struggled with where to eat lunch this day. First it was Chefs de France... Then it was Biergarten... Still struggling with my choice 1 week before we left - I saw this ADR open up for Akershus... So I grabbed it.

We checked in for our meal, and found a shady spot to sit outside.


We didn't wait long when a nice looking Norwegian CM called us in. I think the girls were rather excited about this? They may have had hopes that he was our server? Ahhh, but it was not to be - our server was female.

We had our photo done with Belle... Who went crazy over all of our gear... Then she called over her handler and the PP photographer and continued to show them all of our stuff. It was pretty neat!


We were seated with a veiw of the buffet... There were 3 tables here, so we were kind of by ourselves. I was a little concerned about the location - but it wasn't that bad, no one was ever seated at the 3rd table while we were there.




Our view of the buffet:


We ordered our food and visited the buffet... It was a nice refreshing buffet. The girls especially loved the assortment of meats and cheeses... And of course - we are carbivores - so the bread was very good.

Before we knew it, the Princesses started to come around... Some of these princesses we had seen SEVERAL times at this point - Cinderella seemed a little disappointed that the girls didn't feel it necessary to have their picture taken with her... So reluctantly they stood up to have their picture done - as they did for the rest of the Princesses - so not to not make the Princesses feel bad. LOL








It was kind of nice that the Princesses came through while we were eating from the salad bar, so that once our food came - we were able to eat our food with out the disruption. LOL - We were hungry!

Alli ordered the open faced chicken sandwich with some sort of potato soup. She liked it, but thought it was very awkward to eat with out a top to hold on to, so she mostly picked it apart and ate each item individually.


Victoria ordered the Traditional Kjottkake (meatballs) - she LOVED them!


And I ordered some sort of beef sandwich - which isn't listed on the Allears menu - so I don't know what it's called? But it was beef and it had blue cheese on it. It was very good.


Clean plate club for V - which NEVER happens in real life! So, this is a monumentous occasion!


Mmmm... And the desserts... I'd forgotten how good these were - until I looked at the picture just now. LOL They were so good - we asked for seconds of the dessert tray, even though we were full. I wish I could share a favorite - but they were all different and all delicious.


We ate our dessert, settled our "bill" - and off we went... Uh-oh... It had rained while we were eating. Great...

Off we went around World Showcase... We stopped in China to visit Mulan...


Then we stopped at the Park Map Bracelet stand, as Victoria wanted to pick out a bracelet (or 3). She talked me into buying 2 of them for her, and she purchased one herself. They are super cute - and a fun story to tell.

While we were there... Guess what... We were there for a long while... Yup - it rained... We should just expect that while we are in WS in Epcot.


Then we headed to France to grab treats for later... Have I mentioned lately that it was HOT? It was very, VERY, VERY HOT!

V and I ordered Napoleons, and Alli had something else? I don't remember what. But they packed them all "to-go" and off we went...

I looked at the time, and figured we better start heading to the front of the park. We were on a mission!

So, we hopped on the Friendship boat in Morocco...


It was SOOOO hot by now... Hot enough that we were trying to duck into any building we could on our way to the front of Epcot, just to cool down for a few minutes. It really sucked.

It was only an accident that we stumbled upon Club Cool... Shoot - we didn't have the time - but while we were there... We really must... OK - girls make it quick...


Beverly:






We were headed to the Monorail... A photo as we passed under SSE:


Rut-Roh... Did I just say "monorail?" And we needed to be somewhere??? And this somewhere was VERY important... Great...

<--------- New avatar pic... What do you all think? I think I need to redo it once our PP cd comes and maybe the photo won't be so blurry?

OK - sorry for hogging my TR this morning... But I really felt this was post-worthy...

So, just a minute ago - I walked out to the kitchen to get my water ready for my morning work out... I glance into the livingroom... I guess someone fell asleep this morning while studying...

LOL

Poor Maxy-Moose... It's tough work learning English... (nevermind that he isn't supposed to be on the furniture...)
