    I'm a bit behind already but from the first update, I'm so glad you got the ME bus you wanted! :)

    Never have seen decorations in the windows from dissers so I'll have to keep an eye out next time, that was cool!

    And, all the pics are great so don't worry! I'm glad you are adding so many, they really help us see your trip! :goodvibes

    Awesome that Bill sent you those beautiful flowers, what a sweet man! :lovestruc

    wow, you guys must have been wiped out after that long first day, but we would have done it too, gotta go do when you get there! :thumbsup2

    sorry about the fighting stuff, I know that's disappointing, especially when you are so excited and just trying to get started on your dream trip. You gotta do what you gotta do and you had to put your foot down like that the first time it came up, so you did good! And, yeah, after you two put out so much for that trip, don't be starting the first day with the arguing! He needed that 'whoop upside the head' so to speak, lol!

    The kids are so cute and seem to be having a great time! It's nice that Josh is so helpful with Bill and getting him on the rides. Gotta start Epcot with SSE, I mean it's so cool and right there when you walk in so first ride! :yay:

    You probably didn't get to MK until the time we usually get there, lol! We are late to bed, and to rise and to get to the parks, we just always stay late! :goodvibes

    Josh sounds like my brother! :rolleyes1 I'm glad your "discussion" got him back in line and you guys enjoyed a fun evening. :goodvibes

    I hope you didn't make it to MK too early - sounds like you all need some sleep after the early morning/late night combo. ::yes::

    Those portion sizes at Planet Hollywood are huge! I can't believe you all had the energy to stay at Epcot until midnight on travel day!


    :thumbsup2 Another Disney lover in the works? :rotfl: Looking forward to the next chapter!

    Josh really likes being helpful with Bill, he is very protective of him.

    That was my thought, we can argue all we want at home, just NO arguments here.

    :rotfl:

    I haven't seen Turtle Talk that empty either.

    Oh don't worry we didn't make it to MK too early :thumbsup2.

    I thought the portions were huge too. I think all of them are hooked on Disney now.

    On the way to Epcot that night I sat with Christian and Hannah. Christian thanked me again for bringing them to Disneyland, he had been saying land instead of world and I had been correcting him. Hannah turned to him her letting hands going and said "Christian it's Disney World not DisneySTAND". :rotfl: That completely cracked me up, she was so serious.

    I got our Photopass CD yesterday so I thought I would add the first picture we had taken:

    [​IMG]

    It wouldn't be the first Disney picture if Bill's eyes weren't closed :lmao:.

    Our lazy butts slept until 10:30am then we were slow to get around. Hannah was dressed in her Minnie outfit today and she also got to keep my Minnie ears, Christian was wearing the Pirates t-shirt I bought him:

    [​IMG]

    I made the decision to just go ahead and have us eat lunch at Pop so we wouldn’t be burning park time eating. I didn’t really get upset about us not getting to the park before 1pm because we were spending another full day then a MVMCP night at Magic Kingdom. All of us enjoyed the Pop food court then went to the bus stop.

    I took this picture:

    [​IMG]

    I love the look on Abbey’s face. I can see where her kids get their great looks.

    Abbey took this one:

    [​IMG]

    We finally made it (pics courtesy of Josh):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I asked for a photopass picture, but that was a very bad idea, the sun was in all of our eyes:

    [​IMG]

    Christian and Hannahss expressions were so funny.

    We made our way onto Main Street USA and I got a picture of Hannah’s face when she saw the castle for the first time:

    [​IMG]

    She put her hands to her cheeks and said “it’s beautiful, so beautiful”. I almost started crying. We turned to go in front of the Crystal Palace. The castle show was going on so we stopped for a minute.

    (from Josh)

    [​IMG]

    I had to get a picture of Hannah watching it:

    [​IMG]

    We went to Adventureland and I caught sight of Lilo and Stitch. I remembered that Hannah said she wanted to meet Lilo, so I steered us to that area. As soon as we were at the front of the line they had to “take a break”. No problem until Hannah asked me where they were going, I told her they needed to get a drink, she said “wouldn’t they have to take their helmets off to do that?” As I was saying “what helmets, they don’t have helmets.” Abbey had heard Hannah and her head whipped around to Christian and said “what did you say to her?”. Christian swore he didn’t say a word to her and Hannah seemed to believe what I had said to her. Thank goodness about that time they came back out, here is what happened:

    [​IMG]

    Then Bill got a picture:

    [​IMG]

    On our way to Pirates of the Caribbean Josh took these:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We all went on Pirates and everyone loved it but Hannah, she didn’t like the darkness and hadn’t liked the Pirates movie when she had seen some of it so when it came time for the Jungle Cruise, I took one for the team and sat out with her. No way were we going to have her go on that with the snakes, she would not have been happy at all. She did this instead:

    [​IMG]

    She played with the wheel while they were riding, it didn’t bother her one bit that they had went on the ride without her. After they came back we stopped at Aloha Isle for sodas before heading out to the monorail, we had dinner plans with KathyRN and family at ‘Ohana.

    While Christian and I were in line, Bill and Hannah were playing:

    [​IMG]

    She was telling him to move his chair closer to the stroller then he would bump it then she would tell him to back away, they did this several times during the trip and every time he would bump the stroller she would just giggle like crazy. Bill loved this because the kids really involved him in everything, they included him, and it really made my heart swell. I told them we were going to the Polynesian Resort to have dinner at ‘Ohana. Hannah piped up and said “Ohana means family. Family means no one is left behind”. I said you are very right!! Then we headed for the monorail.

    Next installment… how did the meet with KathyRN and family go?

    :goodvibes What a sweet family you have (I know, I know...every family has its moments ;))! Those kids are just precious, and it was so nice of Bill to "sacrifice" the anniversary trip for the family one. Can't wait to read more :)

    Thank you so much for joining us.

    You are absolutely right about the kids being precious, Bill and I really miss them. I don't think Abbey would let us keep them though :rotfl:. It was wonderful of Bill to want to do that, he is my Prince Charming :love:.

    Okay....

    Everything Pop has surprisingly good food.

    1pm! Man was I off. I like your attitude:thumbsup2 Easy peasy.

    The combination of your pix and Josh's pics give us all a sense of what the day was like through different eyes. For you it's about family, about these kids who are in your life, about making them happy. For Josh, it's experiencing the detailing of the park. He's loving it and you can tell in his pix.

    The whole Hannah story about Ohana....so nice...made me mist up a bit!

    I can tell Abbey, Josh and the kids love Bill. Like you said, it makes the heart swell.:grouphug:

    Another great update Tracy! Christian and Hannah are just adorable. I love how Christian has his arm draped around Bill in the first photopass picture and how Hannah played bumper chairs with Bill. :lmao: It's great to see you in some picture too! :goodvibes

    I'm enjoying Josh's pictures, he got some good ones.

    Looking forward to hearing all about Ohana!
