Such good timing you guys have with the rain! I don't blame you for ducking out. As for the water park, we actually went to Blizzard Beach once when it was raining. We figured we were gonna get wet anyway may as well go! Such a nice view of the sun setting over the parking lot! The clouds look so pretty!

P.S. I have started a trip report for the coast to coast challenge!

I fell behind! I'm so sorry. I'm catching up now.

What a nice momma you are letting Em sleep in.

ToT is always worth it! I would wait 30 minutes for that anytime.

I too would feel overwhelmed and need to have a carrot cake cookie. They're just so awesome.

The Colossal Man is the best part of Sci Fi. Every time it comes on, I just chuckle endlessly.

Wow, you were having a lot of Marilyn moments that day! I'm gonna say it's because you're fabulous!

I hate being late to reservations too! I'm glad you were only 5 minutes late.

Freeze dried ice cream is hard to describe. When I was a kid, I was in love with it. The flavor is good, it just kind of melts away in your mouth, like meringue cookies.

Again, congrats to Em on the engagement! That's such happy news.

Such exciting news! My bff's daughter is getting married in January 2015 so we're well in the swing of wedding planning, so much fun! Please pass on my best wishes to the happy couple!

I am Canadian and I weep every time I hear the song! I am very fortunate that I have been from one coast to the other (the perks of having a father in the military) and every province is gorgeous IMO! If you ever find yourself on the prairies give me a shout....we have a spare room!

Canada the song is so beautiful. I must admit that I'm kinda obsessed with singing it in the car and yes I butcher the french part but that's the thing is I took spanish not french. Haha. It's fun while we're in the car and Olivia screams "Not this song again!"

We have booked our stay for ASM September 15-21st.

Scratch that out!!! Just in...we are going to Disney World on September 22nd-28th!!! I didn't particularly want to stay at ASM but until the Fall Specials come out we will stay there. If the Fall Specials come out we might stay at POR or even...AKL!

So it looks like we will be there during the same time you will be there. I'm so excited plus we get to experience the F&W for the first time too which is what Jason wanted to do!!! EEEKKKK!!! Can you tell I'm excited?

I just got caught back up! Your pictures are lovely as usual. I'm not one to be afraid of rides, but I have ever doneMission Space. I will have to try. It seems I am getting closer to convincing DH into a February 2015 trip, so maybe I will get my chance sooner rather than later!
Congrats to Em! Wedding planning is just the best!

There was this little image that my hubby texted to Em and her fiancé as a joke several weeks prior...


The next text we got from Em was a photo of her hand with the ring!!!!
Love it! He did well with the ring. Did she have any input or was it a complete surprise?

Will they be going to school? I don't know that I've heard what Emily plans to do. So exciting hopefully you can get a girls trip in before the wedding...and after!

Now the real question is, has Jordan been to WDW yet?

Oh that drives me nuts, so wasteful! I do like controlling all that myself with DVC I must admit

I am envious, I cannot nap to save my soul.

What a lovely interlude in Canada. Sorry the funfetti was meh. I have a mini DL trip update in my last set of updates, hoping we can hook up if it works out for you (and Em too!)

Wow!!! Huge congrats to Em!!! How exciting for her. And you! And it is so cool that she still wants to do mother/daughter trips with you. I hope Willow and I will be doing the same throughout her life, even if it someday includes grandchildren!

I feel a little weird just continuing on with TR comments in the same post, but I guess I’m too lazy to start a new one???? : Sorry!

Okay, there may be something wrong with me for focusing on this, but seriously, they ran the dish washer for ONE GLASS???? That makes my head explode!

Oh goodness congratulations!!! How exciting! I remember when I got engaged at 21 - people telling us we're too young, not experienced at life, etc...but our parents fully supported it and i'm glad you guys do to!

I was just commenting on Mary Ellen's thread about not seeing O Canada since 2008...i'm such a terrible DIS'er. I need to get back there and see it. However, I do know the entire 'You're a lifetime journey' song. Does that make up for it?!

Too bad about the cupcake. It actually looks really delicious inside!

I just cringe at the one glass in the dishwasher Especially since we're in a major drought right now.

Congratulations!! Em & Jordon!! I am so happy for you all. I agree, nothing better then to get to grow up with your life time partner. They will have memories that few ever get. Chris and I have been together since the week before I turned 18. So many were betting that we wouldn't last. I love that we grew together. Can't wait to hear the wedding plans come together.

I really need to spend more time in WS. Watching the movies is top on my list of things I need to do. I hope our next trip to fix this. I figure if we try drinking around the world that should keep us in WS longer to get some movies in.

Glad you had good timing as far as the rain go. Nothing wrong with resort time. I am all for taking a long nap. Sometimes I wish someone would come and make me take a nap on a busy day.

Let me know if you need me to add Em to our dinner in September. Or we could just show up with her at the door...I'm sure they wouldn't argue with Michael about us having an extra guest.

Mark and I were talking just the other day that we should visit Canada some day. It's not like we are THAT far and we've never been. I'm glad to hear you've been to part of it. I'll have to pass on the French lessons (I had a hard enough time with Spanish).

I think you and Em secretly just wanted a nap and the rain wasn't really scaring you away.
