Ummm... I told you right after I made the intros.
Send me the funds to get down there and I'm in too. I'll ride both of them with you 'free' of charge!
Thanks for stopping in. Impressive trip list in your signature! We just started going to WDW in 2008. I never went as a kid. I was deprived!
Hopefully I'll have a new update by Monday. I have to upload more pictures.
If any of you have time on your hands and you feel like reading about my run and weekend away with Mel, I started a new TR.
Nemesis Challenge: No Pain, No Gain. A ½ Marathon 2013 TR
The good thing about joining that one too, is you get to me on not 1, but 2 TRs at the same time!!!!!
I don't know if I can eat that much
I bet you could if it was popcorn purchased on Main St.
Hi all! I'm just jumping in and don't think I know you. I'm not familiar with your families history, but sounds like an amazing journey. I am going to make a note to read your older TR's. I am enjoying this TR! No way I can remember all I just read to comment, but I pipe in on 1 or 2 things...if that's okay!
Your children are beautiful & handsome. Same names and about the same ages as my grand niece & gran nephew. Had to check quick to see if my niece or nephew -in-law was writing this. Glad you had pictures of yourselves.
So cool your mom joined you. Some of my older kids best memories are the trips my mom joined us.
Glad Donald Duck was able to bring ease your sons frights.
The stars are awesome in the true sense of the word at GKTW. Looking at your daughter I could never tell she was ill. Again, I haven't read previous reports. I assume she is doing well. Happy for that!
Good for you running the marathon!
Yay for your mom being brave enough to do ToT. My Dad did it with us the first time, he was about 75 years old. He loved it. His girlfriend wasn't too happy about it. (that was just a plus. )
Lastly but not least.... LOVING all the pictures! You have a beautiful family, including your mom.
Looking forward to reading the rest! I'm anxious to catch up on your others as well, but I think my mind moves too slowly to follow more than one at a time.
Joining in. Your kids are adorable, and am enjoying your adventures. Now since I am caught up here, I have to check out your other TT's. Looking forward to your next installment!
I watched your updates on Facebook. WAY TO GO TIM for completing the 1/2. You all rock (even "the other guy")
hmm I am guessing you can get into a fair amount of trouble with a sleeping baby
Nice FP haul. Nice when that works out.
Now ToT But what were you doing holding on?????
Looks like Christopher is figuring it all out with the characters. Nice that he crashed but boo that they would not let you in with the stroller. NOT COOL.
Trouble..... Ohhh I need to know, Streetmosphere get you???
Thanks for reading!!! We really had a fun time!
Oh yea? No kidding! Small world!
She has wanted to come with us for a while, so when we sprung it on her, she was all about it!
ME too. We thought he was just gonna love the characters. It could of been the fact that he barely slept too.
Just after her 1st birthday, Juliana was diagnosed with a Wilms Tumor (a malignant kidney cancer) and had to have her kidney removed and 6 months of chemotherapy. This past August was her 5 year cancer free mark. She is doing well, but she tends to get sick (normal kid stuff) very often.
LOL Way to go! I guess you didn't like his GF.
Awww... thank you.
I hear that! I can't keep up with everyone either!
Thanks for reading!!!! And thank you for the kind words.
He does have some chubby cheeks but the rest of him is pretty slim. He muct burn 1000's of calories a day... he just doesn't stop moving.
They do grow fast. It is just crazy how fast time flies.
It was a fun meet. Christopher was saying 'Buzz' for the rest of the day. I think Juliana was having fun seeing Christopher interact with the characters too.
Yes, that worked out good. Plus when you have 4 people getting FPs and child swap, it works out nicely.
[QUTOE]20 minutes is so worth it for Phineaus & Ferb![/QUOTE]
The line moved pretty quickly so it wasn't too bad. We love those guys.
Yea, we won't talk about him.
Thanks! It just worked out that good.
Not sure... maybe my backpack?
I know... I would of just stood in the back. Oh well, it got me out of watching the show.
Wow... you're good!
I know!! Right?!?
Daaaaang! She may love you to bits, but no slack for you, Timmy boy.
He's got ya there!
I had just left the girls at Beauty and the Beast after getting denied entry with the stroller, so I was on my own with the sleeping baby. I wonder what trouble I could get into. I walked down Hollywood Blvd. when I stopped to check out Streetmosphere.
These guys were pretty funny- walking up to people and pretty much making fun of them. One of the guys came up to me and wanted to make it known to every one watching how much it cost me to let Christopher take his nap on a Disney vacation. After thinking about that for a minute, I needed to keep moving, I had to get my money's worth.
I kept walking to find something to do.... first stop. A beverage.
Then a picture...
Then some browsing. I liked these shirts.
I should of bought the Mickey headphones shirt but I have a hard time spending $25 on a t-shirt.
I walked around for a little while, sat on some benches and enjoyed my beer, & just people watched. Before I knew it, Melody was texting me telling me the show was over. I guess you can't get into too much trouble when you are pushing a sleeping baby around in a stroller. I met up with the girls and it was just about time for our ADR at Sci-Fi. We checked in and waited a few minutes. While we were waiting, Christopher woke up. The wait gave him a few minutes to get his bearings. He was having fun running around when we were called. We were seated first at a car, but it seemed like it was going to be difficult trying to tend to him. We asked the server if we could have a table. It took him a minute but he was able to move us to a table. As much fun as it woud of been to sit in the car, a table worked out much better.
Christopher was ready to eat...
After we ordered, I had to run out to the stroller to grab something and on my way back in I bumped (almost literally) into another DISer and her family. (Hi Carrie!) We chatted for a few minutes before she let me get back to lunch...
When I got back to my table, my milkshake was there...
It was really thick... I think I had the oreo shake. It was like eating dessert before my lunch. It wasn't long before our meal came. My mom ordered the salmon sandwich, i forgot what Ana had, Melody had the turkey club, and I ordered the rueben with onion rings.
The onion rings were good but I was disappointed with the rueben. It was very fatty. I think I only ate half of it before I just got disgusted with it.
The kids enjoyed eating at the movies but I'm not sure we will be coming back to eat here anytime soon.
Our stomaches were full and we took a short walk over to Star Tours. I kept telling Juliana she would love it. She wasn't too sure but she trusted me and we went on with my mom.
There was a short wait but it didn't take long before we were smuggling Juliana ummm, I mean the rebel spy and the secret plans through the universe. She got a kick out of being the rebel spy. My mom almost bought her this shirt...
I thought it was funny. But I told her to save her money and buy her something else. Not only was Juliana a rebel spy, but now she was an expert speeder bike driver.
After seeing her skills, I figured I'd let her give me a ride.
I got a little scared when she tried some tricky maneuvers.
We kept moving to the streets of America and found one of Christopher's favorites....
It is a little hard to see, but Christopher has the biggest cheesy smile on his face in this picture!
He loved seeing Lightning McQueen up close. I think after this we walked over to the playground, however I don't have any pictures of that.
Up next.. Wrapping up day 3!
I LOVE the Christopher's cheesy grin! So cute!
Jill in CO
Yay for meeting up with Carey. you guys need to be careful where you walk!
Yo uare the 2nd review I have read in 2 days that said the Ruben was fatty and not good. We haven't eaten there yet, and though I would like to for the atmosphere, the food, doesn't look like a hit for our family.
nice to read you didn't get in to much trouble with Christopher...except hey you were : and good thing you didn't run over any small children
we usually get the burgers at Sci-Fi and we love the shakes!
brave girl Juliana riding on Star Tours!
cute photo of Christopher seeing McQueen for the first time!
Well, that's the nice thing about a sleeping kid... gives you the opportunity to enjoy things like Streemosphere.
Apparently, he doesnt think too highly of his own show...
Do you have some kind of obsession with taking pictures of yourself drinking beer???
You clearly didn't try hard enough.
I'm sorry it was a disappointment. I always like it because the dark, cool room is always a nice break and if you're paying out of pocket, it is a little more on the affordable side as far as Disney dining is concerned. Definitely won't win any Food Network competitions though.
Way to go Juliana!
I love it! Your kids are awesome, but I don't have to tell you that.
It's funny because it's true!
You went for Beverly! Good job!
This one is great! I got a coffee mug with a similar message.
But Disney t-shirts are 25% more magical.
You just weren't trying hard enough.
I don't blame you. We weren't much impressed with the place, either.
Nice! They'd never suspect the cute kid!
Nice! He'd fit right in with the Streetmosphere guys.
I wish I had a close up of it. It was 100% cheese!
I think I almost walked into her. She was like Tim? and I was like yeeesss?
I was really disappointed with it. I had high expectations.
I only had one beer... not like I was downing them.
The shake and onion rings were the best part of the meal. I shudda went for the burger.
She loved star tours! I think we tried to ride it again but the line was a little longer than we wanted to wait.
Usually we just walk by them without stopping. It was fun to watch them for a few minutes.
Well, I was by myself... who else was going to take a picture of me?
I guess you should just be glad I wasn't drinking in the shower.
It was nice and cool there.. that was the highlight.
Thanks!!! And I do know that!
Nope. I don't go searching that crap out.
I guess I have to believe you.
So, how was the burger?
He would. Maybe if he worked for a few hours it would offset the money I lost while he was sleeping.
