    That is such a lovely resort. The interiors are just the look I love.

    Claire sure is quite the not so little any more fish! Kids sure do have the bad habit of growing up. What great Mom & Claire you two had.

    If you like doll houses you should see mine. I inherited from Bob's stepmother.

    You just capture everything perfectly, from the Beach Club decor to Claire swimming to the photo of the Beach Club-just love it. So, how warm was it, that Claire was swimming at night? She is really quite the swimmer, isn't she???

    I think I love the exterior of the BC villas the best, and the inside of the actual BC resort the best. One thing is for sure, the artwork looks great at both places!

    Yay for getting to swim in Stormalong Bay! I get wanting to move around a lot. This pool has so many cool areas to explore.

    That Beach Club pool looks awesome. We're members at OKW, and have been able to get a room at Boardwalk, ONCE, but haven't been able to get one at Beach Club yet... It doesn't help that we only vacation during the same time as the majority with kids... haha One day. But we've had the Kitchen Sink and the kids have eye-balled the slides and lazy river!! :D One day we'll get a reservation there.

    She loves swimming any time she can get it in. But night is always extra fun.

    we did have a nice day. A nice mixture of family and just us. She is growing way too fast.
    I have been working a dollhouse for years..like maybe 15? It's built and partially painted, but nothing inside is done. I actually stopped about a year ago because I needed skip to cut some things to size for me and forgot about getting back at it. I will have to go pull out my directions and have him cut those so I can move on. I also need to finish painting the window trim and put them in. I was at one time going to buy an expansion kit for it, but I gave up on that idea. I also thought about putting shingles on it, but again, that sounds like too much work. :rotfl2:

    It wasn't that warm. The pool was ok, but the outside air had started to chill down.

    I agree, I like the outside of the villas, but I like the look of the BC for inside.
    that pool is huge and I am glad Claire did get a chance to swim in it.

    One day you will get it. I have heard it's really hard to get, especially summer months. We never made it to the slide. I guess we'll have to go back someday.

    Awesome! :thumbsup2 That CM REALLY looks creepy!

    Ugh to the bus fiasco. I hate when you just miss a bus and end up waiting FOR-EVER for the next one. And weird that the bus driver called the other guy a jerk but tried to cover for it.

    Thanks I dod to, but it took a lot of emails to get it. The seller said a certain amount of weeks and then it went and gone and then she stopped answering, or swore it was on it's way and then it never came. I finally told her I was filing a claim with my credit card company and it showed up.

    He was great and in character.
    Yeah I wasn't impressed with our replacement driver at all. If I had time I would've complained. i should've gotten his name.

    I love that outfit too and I got it for pretty cheap at a costume shop online. She wore it one night on the cruise as well, so we got a few uses out of it.

    Cool!

    Wow - what a long day. I am tired just reading about it. Sorry you had such bad service at CMC. Why should leaving a tip be SO difficult? That's ridiculous. Love that you capped the night off with an SAB swim.

    Your pictures make me wish my October waitlist for BCV comes through. I check my DVC member account almost every day. :rotfl2:

    I forgot to add that I loved all of Claire's outfits. I really miss having a daughter because there aren't many cute clothes for boys.

    I built a dollhouse several years ago, but have since given it to my niece. She has wanted ever since I built it, since she has a little girl I gave it to her. The one I inherited is so beautiful, all the rooms are electrified. When looking at photos of the house it looks like a real house.

    I hope it comes through for you. I am glad we stayed there once. I want to try other places though before going back. I do NOT like the bus service there.

    Thanks. I love dressing her up. I just got her another cruise type dress, so I need to cruise again before she grows out of it! :thumbsup2

    I want to do electricity too. It wil lbe years and years before I get it done. I just don't work on it too often.

    Jen, just want to say that I (as always) just LOVE all your pics. Your pics of the BC make me so excited about our stay there in August. We will stay in a 1 bedroom, since I guess I will have a lot of laundry to do after two weeks on the Fantasy. ;)
    But it will be fun to just walk into Epcot and stroll over to the Studios. Thanks for getting me so excited ..... we have less than 10 weeks. :woohoo:

    You did SO MUCH this day I would have been exhausted! We always just go to a park in the morning and stay until they throw us out and then go back to the hotel:laughing:

    I've never been to Cape May but now I know who to ask to not be our server if we do go. Surly someone must have complained about her behavior before.

    I'm glad Claire got to go in Stormalong Bay. It's so pretty I've always wanted to go in it.

    Well, I was at LEAST 15 pages behind, but I have FINALLY caught up! :scared:

    I can't even remember everything, but I'm so glad you got to see so many of the Christmas decorations! And just remind me about "Susan" if I ever to to Cape May- which is high on my "must do" list!!! :sad2: Corey will be LIVID if he ever has to deal with someone like that at Disney… it would be a BAD day for me.

    The Tea Party looked amazing… I want Cortlyn to do that one day! But she doesn't seem to care for Alice in Wonderland, so it may not happen anytime soon…

    Thanks. I would love a 1 bedroom and had I known my parents were going to stay with us, I probably would've went that route. It is a lovely spot to stay. The area is beautiful. My complaint is the bus systems. I still think the Values are far much better when it comes to buses. I can see why you normally drive sincey ou often stay at deluxe/villas. You would think for the amount of money you pya for a deluxe they would have a personal bus for each person. :rotfl:

    Kathy we do that often too. This was the first time I have gotten park hoppers with Claire in tow. She actually liked it, so we did hop a bit.
    Cape May is good, but service has never been great for us. I don't want Susan to lose her job, just to change her ways of dealing with customers.


    I have been slacking the last few days. Hopefully I can get a new update later today or tomorrow. I am starting to fall behind on some other reports I'm reading too. It was a busy work weekend. I foolishly thought I could get my TR worked on this weekend, but things never go as planned, but it was still a good weekend.

    LOL. Thats OK. I think Janet is that far too. And she'll be away for a week now for her family trip to Florida.
    Claire is not big on Alice in Wonderland too. In fact I don't even know if she had seen the movie before her first tea party, but she really had a good time. She thinks Alice is so pretty and the MH is hilarious.

    Jen, just wanted to pop in and let you know that I'm all caught up. I snuck in some reading while the boss had a client with him. There's simply too much to comment on so I'll keep it short and sweet....glad that you got to meet up with Carey again, cute pictures of the girls and especially the giggling Abby ones, beautiful pictures around the Beach Club and yay for Claire getting some swim time in even though it was short.
