    Haha that image definitely sums up how I feel about the weather too!

    I enjoyed your summary :) And a big CONGRATULATIONS on expecting your third child. Another Disney lover in the making I am sure ;)

    I absolutely LOVED your video! It really summed up the joy and fun of your vacation.

    I enjoyed following along and hope to see another TR from you in the future!

    Well First... CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    ... on your ability to include some Frozen references into your closing remarks. :thumbsup2

    Nah, kidding. Seriously congratulations on your upcoming addition. That's wonderful news. And what a great way to slip that little tid-bit into the finale.

    It's always fun to look at everything summarized to really see how much you accomplish.

    I really enjoyed the video. It actually makes me want to do one too. Such a great way to have your trip archived into one place like that. So great.

    Well done Phil!! :woohoo:

    if still looking for it, it is from the episode "A Star is Burns" ... which also featured the immortal line: “I was saying boo-urns”

    Thank you! We are very excited - though a bit nervous about being outnumbered 3-2 :)

    We haven't ... though I do still have that AP and TIW burning a hole in my pocket ;)

    have to figure out timing with the new baby but we do generally try to get the kids down to Florida so that Judi's grandmother can meet her new great-grandchild so I am toying with a shorter trip in September, but we shall see.

    Thanks - and thank you for joining in!

    yeah, I generally like/don't mind winter, but enough is enough. Here is a photo of my backyard from this morning:

    Thank you! And yeah, probably won't have much of a choice than to enjoy Disney ;)

    Thannk you - I was pretty happy with how well the video came together ... when you see it all put together like that it really highlights how much we did .... and especially how much food we ate :D

    THANK YOU!!! ... you know I had to get one more Frozen reference in there :thumbsup2

    Thank you! ... I was thinking of making a separate "real life" update, but didn't want to overdue things (that's what Facebook is for) but did want to mention it somewhere

    Thank you - I am glad to have this whole TR as a memory of the trip and I know the McNamees have said they enjoyed it as well, which I am glad for.

    I really enjoyed your trip report, Phil. The video was great and a nice keepsake of your vacation.

    Congratulations on the new addition! July? Hmm.......could this be a little souvenir from your October trip? ;) Do you and Judi find out the gender or want to be surprised? I'll bet Olivia is very exited.

    Keep us posted and take care!

    Oh Phil, CONGRATULATIONS to you and Judi with the new addition to your family!! How very exciting.

    It's hard to believe this was your first TR - you did an incredible job. So very entertaining and well written.

    Some of my favorite moments were.....

    Yep, happy kids with a little editing! :rotfl2:

    And if nothing else, you may have a future as an animator! Good job with Dopey!

    Your video captured all the food, characters and fun of the trip so well. I hope you do have another trip soon since I will miss your wonderful TR.

    See you real soon too! :)

    Thank you - glad you enjoyed it! Glad I made the video - also easier to share with relatives, etc. then asking them to make it all the way through this TR :lmao:

    No - we are positive the new addition isn't a souvenir from the trip ... pretty close, but not quite. We will find out - should be in about 3 weeks that we find out. We like to know (and figure it is a surprise when we find out) - this way we can prepare ... plus being able to refer to "it" as a "he" or a "she" makes it that much more real for us

    Thank you Brenda! We are excited for our new Mickey or Minnie :goodvibes

    Wow, thank you for the compliment - definitely means a lot coming from you!

    aww, thanks for going back and thinking of your favorite pics - those are definitely some of the highlights of the trip for me as well. Just seeing the look on Olivia's face with pretty much any of the princesses shows me that Disney has a license to print money with them :rotfl:


    Thank you! I am trying to figure out if we can fit in another trip this coming year (before my AP expires ... if not, likely won't be until the fall of '15

    aw, thanks for posting that ... great pic! Love it as Olivia sings that song a lot (apparently they use that song in her Kiddie Zoomba class she has at school ... I know, I wish I went to school with her instead of boring ol' work)

    Thanks for tagging along!

    Oh cool - glad a link to this TR is making the rounds! Glad you found it and enjoyed it!

    Dining is such a big part of trips to WDW for us so it definitely was going to be a big part of any TR I do!

    Thanks for the congrats!

    Life Update - Olivia turns 5!​


    Well, in an effort to keep this TR going a little longer, thought I would post on here as well that today is Olivia's birthday and she turned 5!

    For her birthday her main present was a "big girl" bed - but so she had something to open today we got her some sheet sets for said bed, as you can see in the picture below, including some Sophia the First sheets which Olivia declares "I always wanted Sophia the First sheets!!!!"

    [​IMG]

    Ok, so not too much of an update, but I am also using this update to tease a future update that I hope to make in a few days after I can confirm a few more details. ;)

    Aww how cute Phil. I've been passing these out a lot lately, but age 5 certainly deserves one too.

    Also, I think I may know what this tease involves... :scratchin
