    Another baby sniffer here. :rolleyes1. I LOVE the smell of babies, and I smell them so hard that DH acusses me of being a baby "scent stealer". I don't want anymore of my own, but I sniff when I get the chance! :laughing:

    :rotfl2: isn't it funny how when your 20 you think 30 is old!! :rotfl2:

    Steve have a grand baby? He was born yesterday.. Technically.. No.. He is in Japan. So it's complicated. :rotfl2:

    I noticed you have a 3 and 15 year old. :rotfl2: gotta be hard!:worship:
    I hope your DD15 can get into the spirit. It really is a lot of fun for independent teens! If she can just find some other teens at the resort or in the parks!

    It's funny!! Everyone smells em.. But no one admits they smell better than fresh baked cookies!
    Thank you very much!! I am sooo proud of my eldest boy and his wife!:yay:

    Ok, I checked in yesterday morning and then missed all of the excitement! Congratualtions Carl!! Liam's a doll!:lovestruc

    Good luck with the biopsies crostorfer. I love your attitude - and I'm sure you will love the cabana. We rented one last fall and DH put it on our must do list for our next trip.

    Congrats on booking your first stay at the Poly! It will probably not be your last! :goodvibes

    Staying put on arrival day sounds like a great plan!

    I've never done the luau, but from what I've read it gets mixed reviews. :confused3 The same fire dancer from the show does the torch lighting ceremony so if you want to catch a teensy tidbit of the show, that is available for free and it is pretty cool!

    Whatever you decide, you'll be at the Poly. It will be awesome! :cool1:

    We'll be at the Poly next month :woohoo: and will be going to the Luau one night. We also have a DD6 and will let you know what she thinks of it. The dancing and fire juggling is some of her favourite parts of Lilo & Stitch so she's looking forward to it.

    From the Tikiman website:

    The Volcano pool has lifeguards on duty from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. These hours change to 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the offseason. This does not mean you cannot swim before or after. The slide is closed after hours and there are no lifeguards.

    60 day countdown til our first stay at the poly! we are all so excited :cool1:

    i've been trying to look back thru the posts, but was hoping someone would be kind enough to share any poly "musts"?? dh & i will be travelling with our 4 kiddos, 12,9,3 and 9 months so there is definitely an age difference between the older 2 and younger 2, but we don't want the older ones to miss out on anything....our motto "divide and conquer" :laughing:

    are cabanas worth it? what is the cost? thinking it might be helpful with the two little ones to get them in the shade?

    thanks!
