Jack Day Resort: Boardwalk Villas I have been working on a trip report since we got back from Disney almost 3 weeks ago and it's gotten a bit long so I won't bore you to tears in one swift swoop, I'll just bore you a little bit at a time. A little background info: This vacation is our first in nearly two years. Since 2008 hubby has had surgery after surgery due to vascular issues; well last summer (July 2010) he had a couple of blood clots in his left leg and after four days of being in the hospital and the doctors working on getting rid of the clots and saving the leg, they ended up having to amputate (above the knee). So all our vacation plans for last year were cancelled (I had been scheduled to go WDW in August 2010 for the Bridal Showcase thing and then he & I were scheduled to go in October 2010). He was determined that he would be able to do this trip, so we went ahead and signed all the paperwork for our Escape Vow Renewal to celebrate our 20th anniversary. He had a couple of falls while he was home recuperating which somewhat delayed him getting a prosthetic leg, but in November 2010 he got a leg and he's been learning (re-learning that is) how to walk. He's come a long way and I am very proud of him (and so are the doctors). He's got a great attitude about this whole thing! So while he was busy relearning how to walk, I was busy planning our "re-wedding"! Now, in all honestly DH had more imput into this wedding than he did our original wedding back on April 13, 1991, which I was totally fine with since we agree on virtually everything. We do - really - I'm not kidding! I think the only thing we really disagree on is he likes Pepsi and I like Coke. Even my dad used to say "you two don't fight - what's wrong with you?" So back to planning...we decided that we wanted to get re-married at the Wedding Pavilion, but we wanted a Hawaiian theme. So we sent out "Save the Dates" to all our friends and family. With the Escape Collection we could only have 18 guests so we had to illiminate some folks, which upset me, but we wanted DH's family to be there (since his Dad and uncle missed our original wedding). Everyone who received the "Save the Date" cards accepted! We were very excited! Work calls - more to come!
