Ok - so I'm back, and was in the office this morning, but "had" to come home again. Oh darn! The day before I left for FL (last Tuesday), I sent my laptop out to my IT dept due to a software issue I'd been having, and they'd need it for several days (hence sending it while I was gone). It was "supposed" to be delivered back to me this morning - but NOOOOOO, won't be til tomorrow. Oh well - I didn't really need to get caught up today, now did I?!? Darn IT guys... Barry, et al who deal in that arena - sorry, I'm sure YOU wouldn't be problem IT guys. SO - we had a wonderful time while in Florida. We did not go to any of the parks. We did enjoy the resort quite a bit and went to DTD twice. For table service meals we ate at BOMA (an original ADR I made) and then Wolfgang Puck Cafe and Whispering Canyon Cafe (both changed on the spot while there). FOr counter service meals we ate at Roaring Fork (at the resort) twice, once for dinner and once for breakfast, and Cookes of Dublin. We went to see ALICE IN WONDERLAND twice - we really liked it, and are ready to go see it again with our boys. We didn't do the 3D version, but still really, really liked it in plain old 2D. It was sunny and beautiful on both ends of our trip, and poured in the middle on both Thursday & Friday. We enjoyed the fireworks at the MK while waiting for, and then riding the boat back to our resort on Wed. night after Boma. I'll get a few pics posted soon. Ok guys - I have a proposal for a new MAN LAW here. There is ONE THING THAT REALLY BUGGED ME ON THIS TRIP, (and actually bugged me quite a bit on our family trip in January, but I failed to mention it then) - ....... when you are traveling with your family to any Disney park, for any reason - be PRESENT with them, be ENGAGED with them, and for heaven's sake, be RESPONSIVE to them. GET OFF your stupid electronic devices! Sure, texting someone to arrange a meeting place is ok once or twice, or to tell the other half of your party where you are since they didn't want to go on some attraction with you so that you can get re-connected is ok too... but otherwise - hang it up, put it away, or hide it if you must... but don't use it, constantly, while your poor wife deals with screaming, tantruming, hollering, sleeping, or even otherwise well-behaved kids. I cannot tell you how many times on the buses, boat and just walking around DTD I watched this happen. Dads completely ignoring their family while they were talking, texting or listening to voicemails. I was ready to knock it out of several hands by the end of the trip. I'll bet if we'd been there longer I would have. I was so frustrated. Sure, I like my technology, and have posted "live" TR's before - but I won't do that while the family is up and present, usually only after they are asleep, or before they get up for the day. But I refuse to take phone calls while on vacation. I refuse to listen to VM's, unless it's a call from my wife, and I certainly refuse to deal with email...just because I have a smartphone and CAN look at email, doesn't mean that I SHOULD while on vacation with my family. OK, venting over for now. I'll get off today's soapbox now.
