Blue? Are you on a holiday?
We miss you...
Hi guys! I'm sorry I haven't updated in awhile. We did a quick trip to SeaWorld San Antonio on Monday and then we hosted a big Luau/July 4th party here at our home yesterday. Today we are ripping out part of our kitchen to get ready to remodel. I'm hoping to update tonight.
I missed the green light being on....
Glad you're okay and you've just been having fun!! I'll be waiting for that update...
Can't wait for your next update
A luau sounds like a blast
Do we get pictures of the Luau as well..? Perhaps more pix of the DH with coconut shells...
You've been busy!
When do you do your movie? I can't wait to hear about it!
Thanks so much for the compliments.
I took a few MS photo's last time we went through and none of AL. This time I thought I'd relax through MS and make up for it in AL.
Same to ya!!
Welcome back!! Hope you guys had a blast!
Too funny about the tree. I really thought we had a good spot until it all got started.
You crack me up!
Update coming up...
It's been super crazy here.
All is well. Update today!!
Luau was not so great.
I wish I could say yes. But I can not. The luau ended up a complete disaster. It was really awful. It was one of those "adult takes up for their child and the other parent's get mad" type of situation. Not fun at all. Sad really. Needless to say, we will not be footing the bill for another Luau any time soon. Kiss that $500 good bye!! From now on I think if we want to have something that big it will just involve family.
Oh, but you'll be happy to know that I kept the grass skirt and coconuts for DH.
Super duper busy!!
Movie is wrapped! It was so much fun and it is now in post production. I'll let everyone know when the web site is up and eventually when the movie is out.
One more thing about the movie.....it got an R rating and is not something for the kiddo's to see. I play a police dispatcher so....no, I do not get killed and I never do nudity so that is out too. I'm not even sure if there IS nudity or if it is just incinuated. Either way...IT AIN'T ME!!
Today is our last day. We get up early and since we've already visited every park at least once, we decide that the first half of the day would be spent park hopping and re-riding all of our favorite rides. The first half of the day is sort of a "speed touring" day. We will see how many of the "big rides" we can fit in before DS's nap time. While we wait for any fast pass windows, we can do things DS wants to do. Everyone is happy.
First up.... EPCOT!! We want to go back and ride Soarin' one more time. Yes, even DS. He doesn't want to try Test Track again. We arrive before rope drop and wait around. We get in and I trek ahead of DH and DS, doing my "power walk" to grab a fast pass for Soarin'. Just when I feel like I'm about to kill over....I'M THERE!! WOOT! I get the passes and head back out. I can't remember the time but I think we had about 45 minutes to kill. We head over to Nemo per DS's request and walk right on. After Nemo and checking out the Manatee's and aquarium again, we head over to Figment since we still had about 10 minutes left. We walk right on that one too! Then it's time to SOAR!!! Here are some pic's of our speedy Epcot morning.....
Manatee's! Couldn't get a good pic.
Ok, so basically we are on the back side of the aquarium that is seen in the Coral Reef restaurant. Look past the coral and you can see the windows to the restaurant. If you read my TR from February, the window all the way to the left is where we were seated for our anniversary dinner. The hole in the coral is where the divers swam through and then over to our window. TOO COOL!!
My favorite picture....
Ok, I'm sorry to do this but I have to run real quick. Hopefully, I can finish this update tonight!!
Yeah for an update!! I was beginning to think that my sub thread thingie was not working
Way to power walk to Soarin' I am going to start working on that for Sept.
I love that picture of your son.
Can't wait to see what you were up too next.
Sorry to hear your luau was a disaster
Great start so far to your update!!
Sweet pic of your ds. Can't wait to hear what is next
Love the pix of DS by the tank at The Seas !! So the movie is not an Xrated Blue!!
Sorry it took so long.
Gosh, that power walk to and from Soarin' is HARD! I feel like I'm going to pass out by the time I get back outside. I never take the escalator because I find that if you trot down the stairs you can get a good lead on some of the crowd.
Thanks about the pic of DS.
Well, besides the drama....it started pouring down rain and ripped away all the decorations myself and DH spent 2-3 hours that morning putting up. All in all, now that we've had time to think about everything.... We are looking at it as a "cleansing process". We've really needed to move on from the people with the "issues" a long time ago. They have been our friends for the past 4-5 years but it has been stressful the past almost 2 years. Sometimes I guess you just grow apart or something and you just have to let go. So we have. It feels like a ton of bricks have been lifted. That alone tells us we've made the right decision.
Thanks about the pic of DS.
Ok, I found that I'm allowed to give a quick synopsis of the movie....
It's a thriller about a guy that wants to leave a small town and head to Los Angeles for a better life but he witnesses a murder instead. The movie shows the struggle between the main character and the villain.
The movie is in post production at this time. When a web site is finished I will post about it. The goal is to have the movie entered in to this years Sundance Film Festival. It will be released to the public the end of this year or beginning of next year.
Sounds fun!Can you specify what role YOU played in it? Or is that still hush-hush? Can't wait to see more about it!
EDIT: I just read above that you are a police dispatcher... so nevermind
Cute cute cute pic of your DS. I love non-posed photos and ones like that just show the intrigue and amazement kids can find in all sorts of stuff. It's just like an action shot of a chikd seeing mickey for the first time and not crying! They're so sweet and magical. So, I think that shot is great!
cool info about the movie!! I'm a movie fanatic so now you've sparked my curiosity!
Thanks for giving us some details.
That sounds like it is going to be great!!!
I can not wait to see it
Yeah, all of my scenes take place in the Sheriff's office either talking to the Sheriff or taking a call on the phone. Small part but I still had MANY more lines than the other females in this movie. When you see it, you'll know why. It's a little twisted. A local guy in our film group actually wrote the movie. He is a little twisted too.
Thank you. I know what you mean. I love capturing those moments!!
The movie was fun. I'm curious to see it myself.
Glad I can finally talk more about it!
I hope it's good. I mean, it's independent and low budget but I think it should be interesting. The producer has won several awards before.
