    They are getting married on the 21st. Seems so far away yet will be here before we know it.

    40% off a Dooney & Bourke bag - that's just awesome!

    Love your Dooney and Burke! Congratulations on your new daughter in law to be! What wonderful and special news! Shy loves to drive doesn't she?

    Thank You!!! I love my purse & I've never said that about a purse before.....lol

    Marie & Nick have been together for quite a while. They met when we all lived in Medford. We're thrilled they're finally making it official!!

    Shy does love those cars (that aren't moving). When she rode with Mike on Autopia she didn't want to drive.

    Wow. I've been following your trip for the past couple of weeks (at work :rolleyes1) and have been completely enthralled. I found this board about a month ago while planning my children's first trip. I love reading about your family and experiencing your Disney adventures. It sounds like you must have a great time together!! Thank you so much for all of the tips and entertainment. I can't wait to hear how it all ends! :hyper:

    We'll be sure to remember you on your birthday.

    The bag is super cute.

    While reading through your trip report I've been thinking how much in common we have. I'm a few years older than you, been married 32 years, have 3 children (although I have 1 boy and 2 girls). Now I find out something else. My son...also named Nick :rotfl2:

    Lots of great pictures! I just love how happy Michayla is! There are several pictures of her looking at Minnie which are just fantastic!

    Ice cream and all the yummy toppings looks great too!
    I really think that when we make it make we will be splurging for our first character meal! I think DD will be more into the characters the next time round..she just wasn't that keen the 1st time, too many other things to see and be amazed by..I think she didn't want to let her guard down and just accept who and what they are and just enjoy them... :wizard:

    :wave2: WELCOME!!! We had a good time.....well, most of the time. We did have the occasional issue with the 7 & 11 yr olds but we won't go into details. :rotfl: I'll get more posted tomorrow. Today the twins had appts all day at the Children's Hospital 2 hrs away.

    Isn't it funny how you're drawn to certain PTR & TR's!! I've enjoyed chatting back & forth~~message me if you're a Facebook person & want to become "friends"!

    Thank You so much!!! :goodvibes

    She was definitely more into characters this trip! So really special moments! :cloud9: So kids like the furries over face characters & some like the opposite. Hopefully this next trip your DD will be more open to the characters & she'll have some of those special moments too!!

    Let's catch up.....Ty & Addy and Anthony came back to join Mike & I and the twins to catch the 1pm parade.

    Before the parade starts, an announcement about a local marching band that would be making their way down the parade route.

    The kids loved seeing the parade again & being so close to the action. Shy was antsy and ready to go do something......so we asked her what she wanted to do and she said "fast train, fast choo choo"!! So we headed to BTMRR.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After the ride, we headed back to Main Street. I wanted to combine the photopass cards we had and put them all onto the one photopass+ card, so I went to the camera shop, while the rest of the family hung out. They got to see the Dapper Dans (I missed them this trip).
