I love Shontrell
If that can't put you in a fun mood, then nothing can.

I mentioned to Hunter that we'd probably stay somewhere else next year. His reaction? "Why in the world would we do that?" Every time I look at our vacation pictures, I start to ask myself that same question. In the back of my mind, I'm thinking of booking a pirate room at the CBR. We'd have something different but still be at the CBR. I hate making decisions.
Just wait until I post the day that we stick around the CBR and rent a surrey bike. Lacey and her bell! It's hilarious!
Every time Hunter asked if we could go to Disney World, we'd tell him it was too far and too much money. Thank goodness, we had the PSP and portable DVD player in the car. Otherwise, I think he'd have been pestering us to death.
Make sure that your camcorder batteries are all charged up and ready to go. I bet I checked our's a dozen times.
The only thing that I'm afraid of if we book Port Orleans is that it will look too much like Louisiana and I won't enjoy it. It has me a bit worried.
Great update! Glad the big reveal went as well as it did. Looking forward to more and hopefully that pesky boss won't interrupt you anymore!
Now, I could probably get into the WL if it was all fixed up for Christmas. I'd love any Disney resort during Christmas!
What a cool tattoo! John and I are talking about buying a hammock to take with us when we go camping. We see a lot of people with them and it makes us jealous.
We laughed about Shontrell all vacation long. From out of nowhere, we'd say "Shontrell you a beep!".
what kind of name is Shontrell?? lol i never heard of that name be4,lol
The boys are getting new DS games AND a couple of new Pokemon movies. The way Will has been playing Pokemon constantly I'm seriously thinking of getting him a brand new Pokemon game. That ought to keep him engrossed the entire trip!
I can't help you with whether POR looks like Lousianna. I've never been there (except to drive through it). I'll have plenty of pictures to show you though!
Is it sad that I didn't realize POR was supposed to be Lousianna until I saw it in my UG today? I know, of course, that POFQ was, but for some reason I always though POR was supposed to be Mississippi. I think the "Dixie Landings" through me off. Always thought Dixie was Mississippi.
Maybe it would look too much like Lousianna. Especially Alligator Bayou.
Bosses, they think just because they pay us, we have to work. What's up with that?
Well, Lisa I can answer that one about POR and Louisiana!!!
we stayed years back and we walked through on the last trip in May!!!
Danny loves POFQ; it reminds him of what New Orleans should look like. Clean, wrought iron, mardi gras tackiness (but in a good way) deco, and we really enjoyed the food selections there. Now We only drove through POR!! It reminded me more of Mississippi or the Louisiana River Road! It was beautiful and peaceful looking. It reminds me of what time gone by must have been like/old antebellum plantation style--romantic, someplace I think I would like to stay just Danny & I. Now, I don't know what their rooms at POR are like. But, POFQ were spacious and very tastefully decorated. Danny wants to stay there next year when we go. I'm leaning towards CBR w/ a king. But, who knows where we will stay. If I need to book two rooms I'm sure it will be the POP; the price difference for just a room is almost $500 per room for 5 nts from value to mod!!!
YOU NEED TO SURPRISE HUNTER W/THE PIRATE ROOM!!! he would "pee his pants" for sure!!! He won't be a kid tooo toooo much longer and I can see him so excited jumping from bed to bed like a little one!!! THAT WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA!!
You need to visit my poll and add your two cents in when you get a chance!!!
I just got an email from the post office. They attempted to deliver your package today at 2:00. They said they left you a notice. Yeah!
I just jumped on the bandwagon but I'm all caught up!
For some reason, I can't see any of your pics from the time you reach the Arch! I can see all of your "on the road" pics, but not one one single WDW pic! Oh and I could see Pocahontas' tattoo (which is beautiful BTW! I have Simba on m ankle ) Something about "bandwith exceeded"...anyone know what the problem is? I wanna see pictures!
I have been home all day! Both the kids were here at 2:00 also(mail usually passes around 11/12). and I do not have a notice w/the mail or on the front door???
we'll see what tomorrow holds!!
I am stealing Shontrell from you. I can just say out of the blue "Shontrell, you a beep" and my family will think I've gone to the dark side.
I just got an email from photobucket saying I have exceeded my bandwith. If I am understanding Jen correctly and to put it in layman's terms, I have too many people looking at my pictures. They say that no one will be able to see pics until the 2nd. They have offered me a free trial upgrade. I may just do that and then tell them I don't want it after the 2nd. I'm gonna check it out and see what the free trial upgrade entails. Be back.
I might have to start chimin' in here hehehehe
The free trial....yeah....not so free. You have to sign up for other offers from sponsor companies. I think I'll just start a photobucket account in John's name and upload some pics there.
Sorry for the delay in the trip report.
I made a photobucket account for our family reunion and I had to start a whole new account. You can also get a free hotmail account and just set it up under that email account.
Nothing is free in this world. There is always a price. I hate ads.
Great update! Too bad I can't see the CBR pictures. Stupid photobucket!! Oh well, I guess I will wait!
Hunter is so funny, just like my boys. Especially DS10 - "can we stop trying new resorts and go back to CBR" and "CBR has everything I need " He's 10, what does he possibly need???!!! He is just convinced that we will never find a better pool or a better slide. And he is probably right, unless we ever get to take him to the BC/YC! But he really does love everything about CBR, the pool, the food, the lake, the bridge, the paths, the beaches, the marina, etc. Well actually we all do!
He is not too excited about staying at POR, but he is starting to come around. I keep telling him that you never know until you try something! He does seem to like the looks of OKW, I think because it resembles CBR.
Looking forward to more!
UGH! I am 2 plus pages behind and went to start catching up and the pictures are gone! The Horror! LOL! Did it say when they would be back up again? I'm wondering if I should wait. I'll get way behind, but I don't know if I'll remember to go back and look either.
I've opened a photobucket account in John's name and am uploading some pictures to it right now. I'll go back and repost all pictures from the time we pulled onto World Drive. From what I understand, my "old" pictures will be back up for view on the 2nd.
