    I think AKV is a great place to do your cake- it's so pretty there- and it feels so exotic...is Ron really named Mr. Buzzkill? I'll have to change it in my address book...:rotfl:

    Glad Capt. Kirk helped you out! :thumbsup2



    YAY for your girls!! :woohoo::yay: Can't wait to hear how they like it!

    :rolleyes1

    No- they stay airheads for life, I believe....

    Thank-you!! I liked all of our expressions too!!:goodvibes

    It was a good time to take a break from MK- the crowds were so thick! As I had mentioned, we had a LOT of friends from our hometown who were here for Spring Break, and while most of them were staying at SSR, one family was at BLT- so lucky us, we only had a short walk to go for our swim!!:goodvibes

    [​IMG]

    I love seeing friends from home on vacation, and what was REALLY great was that this particular family (who we knew from Tyler playing PAL football- the Dad was one of his coaches & the son one of Tyler's team mates) will also be on our next family vacation- they will be on our RC Explorer cruise in August! :dance3: Anyway, they own their points at BLT, and this was their first trip to their home- and they were LOVING it!! It was great to spend some time with them, and it gave the kids some time to hang out, too. Phyllis took abot 50 pics of us (she was the team photographer- she makes me look like I don't even own a camera!:rotfl: ) here are just a couple-

    [​IMG]

    And here they are-

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After a couple of hours, we realized it was REALLY time to go- we had an early dinner reservation at Raglan Road with some very special friends, and we needed to get moving- so we stopped back up in the villa, grabbed our things, said our good byes, and Phyllis walked us over to the monorail-

    [​IMG]

    And just as the monorail doors closed, I noticed, ONCE AGAIN, what was missing....

    WHERE ARE YOUR NECKLACES????!!!!!????!!!!!!:scared1::scared1:

    Timmy realized he had left them on the kitchen table at BLT- of course, now we were on the monorail, had to go on the full loop, AND we were NEVER going to make an early dinner reservation if we wanted to shower when we got back to SSR (and we REALLY needed to shower- it was REALLY hot at BLT, I think the building was blocking the breeze).

    For dinner, we were supposed to meet some people who are very, VERY important to me- Tracy, who was a little girl once-upon-a-time that I babysat for (along with her siblings:lovestruc), and who I vacationed with, and who was in my wedding, and whose family hosted my bridal shower, who is now a Mom herself with two adorable daughters; they were staying at the Gaylord Palms with Tracy's husband (who I had never met) and Tracy's Dad. Well, as it turned out, when i called Tracy, she answered her cell phone in NJ- one of her girls was sick, so she was coming down the next day (and unfortunately, both girls ended being sick on their vacation- :sad1:) and that meant our ADR wasn't going to happen. Which, while it made me awfully sad, also kept my screaming at my kids to a minimum! :rotfl2: I DO have to include a pic, taken this past Christmas, when they came for a visit-

    [​IMG]

    Aren't hey just SOOOO precious??? :lovestruc Anyway...back to the disaster on the monorail....

    So I called Phyllis, unable to reach her but leaving frantic messages...now, if they had been staying at any other resort or DVC, for that matter, it wouldn't really be an issue. But at BLT, in order to get into the building itself, you need to have a room key...OR, you need to walk very fast to catch up to the people ahead of you who just opened the door with theirs- which was our preferred method...:rolleyes: But once inside, we had to figure out which room they were in, and hope that they were actually in the room- which somehow, we MIRACULOUSLY found, and when they opened the door, the four of them were totally hystericallly laughing at us. :lmao:

    Always nice to provide entertainment for everyone.

    So it was time for yet ANOTHER lecture- just to be clear- T&T were told they would NOT take their necklaces off EVER!!!! They would sleep with them, shower with them,eat with them, watch tv with them, go to the bathroom with them...heck, they might even have to get MARRIED with them because THOSE NECKLACES WERE NEVER COMING OFF AGAIN!!!!!! EVER!!!!:headache:

    We hopped on the monorail to MK once more, then took the bus back to SSR......

    Up next- alternate dinner plans and the Magic the Memories, and US!!

    Wow those necklaces are really giving you guys trouble! Haha. I am glad you were able to get them back easily and that they were in their room. I really need to invest in a lanyard and the waterproof card pouch that goes with it. Everytime I go to the pool I end up carrying my room key and license and they are always loose. I just know I am going to lose one of them sooner or later. The BLT pool looks nice! Just saw you are all leaving on your Dismom trip in a little over a week. Go Dismoms!! Can't wait to read that TR!

    :dance3: Only 11 more days!! Please tell Tim I'm very sorry for his....small problem. :rotfl:

    I was SO SURPRISED!! And probably terrified- it was my first ride. But I was laughing later on. TIMMY, however, did NOT enjoy it at all- even though he had loved it and told me it was no big deal the year before. :confused3 He looks like he is about to get SHOT!!! :rotfl2: Even better to me is the 5 year old with his Grandparents sitting in front of us- they look so calm and relaxed, like they are on cindy's carousel!! :rotfl2: It was their 5th ride that day, I think they said.

    Glad we could brighten your day! :rotfl: I really want to take them to Sea World- maybe in 2012. :thumbsup2

    Great!! Maybe ones that are big enough to hold wedding cards, that they can leave hanging in a bathroom stall! :thumbsup2

    HEY!! If the necklace fits, they should wear it!!:confused:

    The lanyards work very well keeping track of all your stuff. As long as you are clever enough not to take it off. It amazes my kids, but they just don't work as well that way.....

    Can't wait for the DISmoms trip- always so much fun-:banana:


    Yea- it's a fan favorite...:rolleyes2:rotfl2::rotfl2:

    Oh, those poor boys. Losing their necklaces all the time. They should be thankful to have such an observant mama. But then again, isn't that our job, to be observant of their entire world's, our DH's and then our own. :confused3 I mean really. Us mom's just ROCK! :rotfl2:

    Of course they will have wedding cards. What else would they attach the ring to. What do you think that blue thing prince William was wearing. His mama told him always to wear his necklace.

    Love the update!

    And I thought I was bad with those "necklaces"! :rotfl2: At least they remembered WHERE they had taken them off and you were not "late" for your dinner!

    Can't wait for more! :yay: :yay: :yay:
