    I'm just curious do you own at GCV? or did you get it at 7 months? If so how easy was it? I would love to do something similar next summer but we don't own at GCV.

    I just love your trip reports. I see a lot of similaries in our family except your boys are just a bit older. It's because of your Aulani trip report I want to take my boys at that exact same age. They are 12 and 9 so I have a few years.. :thumbsup2

    Hey Sista! :hug: It's a long time before we get to DL, so here's a little reminder of the fun we had in advance-

    [​IMG]

    LOVE you AND your awesome kids- so hope we get to hang out again someday!:grouphug:



    Thanks- it was really hard to take that pic (and the 500 others I tried to take) because they just would not go where I wanted them to- it was kind of like Sean would go somewhere, and they would follow- but the water should have been behind them, not all those icky condos!

    And the BEST regency Club EVARRRRRR!!!!:thumbsup2


    Excellent! Thanks for coming!!:goodvibes

    Hey girlfriend! :) So happy to see you here!

    Awww thanks! I love that I could help you go out there and have some fun! Hawaii was hands down my kids' favorite destination- to them, nothing will top it.

    I can honestly say, for once I agree with them! :rotfl:

    Hi Christine! Thanks so much for joining in! :goodvibes

    And thanks for the compliment on the pic- I really can't say how happy we all were down at that beach because Sean was always so happy there. Just a great thing for all of us. :love:

    Yay! :cheer2: Found your TR! As my 5 year old DD would say, those pictures of Sean “make my heart smile.” :lovestruc: It reminded me of the saying “God gives special children to special people.” Even though I know what’s in that box, I’m looking forward to finding out like everyone else. The suspense is killing me. :rotfl2:

    :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2: I bet it is! I just finished 100 updates on the DISmom TR, and now I have to take Tyler out, so you will have to hold your suspense a little longer- I sincerely hope it does not really kill you, Tricia. :rotfl2:

    And I love that expression- :lovestruc those pictures make my heart smile, too.:hug:

    Yep! Probably my favorite place I have ever lived (and I have lived in a LOT of places :laughing:) except for the expense. :scared: Let's see, I moved there summer of 2001 - I can remember that because I moved from DC, so 9/11 was horrifying to me having left all of my friends in DC and NY (went to law school in NY State). I left summer of 2007 when I knew my adoption of my daughter was going to go through and that I would no longer be willing to work 7 days a week and 12-hour days. But, man, I still miss it - such a great town. :lovestruc

    Size DOES matter! Let no one tell you otherwise. ;)

    I am getting so many great tips from you! I will definitely look into Hyatt Regency when we take our trip to SF! Can't wait to see pictures from teh club level.

    I mentioned this in a pm but wondering if you priced out Virgin America. They have a great main cabin select category and closer to your trip you can upgrade. However, I know you said you used miles so of course if you had that many United miles you are going to use them to save $$!

    Podsnel,


    You are my favorite trip writer on these boards, and that is saying a lot since I read almost every one. I am really excited to read your latest since I am from California and Disneyland is my home park. I was wondering if at some point you could add links in your signature as others have done to your past trip reports.

    behind as usual. Can't wait to see your photos of San Fran. When we were out there two years ago it was such a blur. I barely remember any of it. Loved that you got to see so many Diser can't wait to hear all about the special surprises.
