    I was wondering if one of you beautiful ladies, who are staying at either the BC/CL or YC/CL could ask the CL CMs a question for me. I tried finding an email address for the BC, but couldn't find one. Since we're not staying CL, I can't ask them. I asked on the BC/YC thread and no one knew for sure the answer. Even though they thought it was no, but their reasoning didn't make sense to me. Here is my question. I know you can't bring floats from home, but you can bring noodles. Have y'all seen the pool noodle chairs? It's basically just a pool noodle, you've twisted into a "u" shape that is being held in that shape by a mesh seat you can sit in. This is what they look like...

    Basically, the noodle would still go under one arm, around your back, and under the other arm. The only difference is the mesh seat supporting your rear end. They suggested asking a lifeguard, but I don't want to waste the money buying them if they aren't allowed. Right now, the only time I can see us using them is on our WDW trip, which is even more reason to not buy unless I know it's ok.

    Me too. I don't wear it unless I am getting out of the car. I have even gone to the Alsup's gas station down the street in the winter with my DH's big 6XL fleece jacket.

    Well, I used to go to Wal Mart like that late at night, but then I found out about the website "People of Wal Mart" and it stopped.

    That looks really cool, but the reason people don't think it would be allowed is that it might obstruct vision of the pool more? The lifeguards need a clear view of the pool bottom.

    If anyone finds out for sure, I'm interested too!! Although I've never seen one of those. i do bring a noodle though :goodvibes Love floating around SAB with one of those big fat noodles!!

    Yeah, you don't want to be in one of those People of Walmart photos :rotfl:

    That what they said and what didn't make sense to me. It shouldn't give any less obstructed view than someone with just the noodle itself wrapped around, or someone sitting on one of the rented tubes. Which is why I can understand then not letting people have those massive ones people have at home.

    I was just on the BC thread and saw the answer. All I can say is that the rental tubes are clear. But I can see your point, it doesn't look like the view would be any more obstructed.
    Hopefully someone who is there now will see your post and give you a better answer then we can!

    Just don't do what I did one night at SAB, in the 8' deep end there are stairs that just end! In my defence it was dark out, and we just got to BC, so I walked down those stairs and was promptly submerged :eek: Wasn't expecting that :rotfl:

    I didn't know they had clear ones. I'm thinking about buying some before our trip, even if we can't use the seats. That way, I can get the thick ones. I didn't see anything in the thread about the noodles having to be under a certain thickness either. If thickness doesn't matter, I may get the DSs the 5 inch ones and the DH and I the 7 in ones. Well, that is, if we truly can't use the noodle chairs, because those would be too thick for the chair.

    oh my, has the fil had a bee up his rear all day. I swear if I had a penny for every time I heard that man yelled GD, Bill Gates would come to me for a loan. Heck, I could probably buy The Disney Company. :lmao:

    The DH decided last night we are going to try and save some money on our San Antonio trip and try Priceline for the hotel. He has a certain amount in his head and if we can get a 4 sta Riverwalk hotel for that amount, we'll do 3 nights. If not, we'll go down to just 2. He wants to save money for the WDW trip. We did Priceline for our 6th wedding anniversary trip to San Antonio and ended up at the Westin on the Riverwalk. Plus the DH just realized this morning we will be gone for Easter. Actually, we'll be driving home on Easter Sunday. It's ok, it's not like the boys are little and missing out on the Easter egg hunt would be tragic for them.

    Lol! Linda, that made me laugh! I'm not a big drinker -- one or two is enough for me, so I wouldn't make it far on that pub crawl, lol!

    Janet: I know about talking and clearing things with the DH :) hope he gives you a thumbs up, would LOVE to see you, and Magic too :)

    Well that and this one time I went at like 2 AM to a Wal Mart I don't usually go to. I had on sweat pants, David's big jacket, no bra. I could wear a 1XL (or maybe 2XL), but I had the DH's old sweatpants on and they were a 3 XL, so they were baggy on me. These teenage punks would moo at me, and laugh between each other as they were walking away. This happened several times and I got sick of it. When they did it again, I followed them down the next isle they turned on and they picked stuff up to pretend they were looking at it. As I walked past, I said something like, "wow, that's really great of you to be moo'ing at someone who is 5 months pregnant with twins." As I was turning down the next isle I heard one tell the other one, as he slapped him on the arm, "you just said she was fat. You made me make fun of a pregnant lady." Of course I wasn't pregnant, but the point was to make them feel as bad and I let them make me feel for just a moment.

    Joey is still having trouble with that punk. Today Joey was walking to the stairs to go to class and he had his earbuds in listening to his iPod (which they let them do between classes). This punk pushes Joey. Then in last period, as the punk was going to the bathroom, he walked by Joey and slapped him in the head as he walked past. My DH thinks I should let Joey have a few days to set him straight, but my mil thinks I need to call and talk to Joey's last period teacher. I'm not sure what to do. I know what I want to do, but I don't want to go to jail for smacking some kid and I don't want Joey to get the reputation for having his mommy fight his battles, which is also part of the reason I don't want to jump on the phone to the teacher.

    But I am popping in with a change...SHOCKING!!!

    I switched both nights to a Honeymoon room at WL :cheer2:

    Apparantly DH saw the email from WL...he didn't open but he figured it out..then he replied he hates changing rooms, but he was excited for WL...so I called and switched the 1st night :cheer2: That he will not find out until we get on the ME bus :drive:

    Note to all my lovely RCers~the Honeymoon room was included in last years BB and this year's AP discount pixiedust: :flower3:
