    Could be. Melody was just commenting on my gray eyebrow hair yesterday. :faint:



    Well we are 0-2. Not that we were trying to eat there last time... :scratchin

    Thanks for the tip. At that point we were just looking for something fast.

    I don't know much about the Yacht club. :rolleyes2

    We weren't overly hungry so it was fine just eating something quick.

    Tusker was really great. I'd go back there for breakfast anytime. :goodvibes

    Thanks!!! :moped:

    Clearly I'm a terrible DISer...I didn't know you started this TR!

    I can't believe how much Juliana has grown! It makes me feel old :laughing:

    Joining in for the rest!

    Caught up again!

    We did Tusker House on our trip in October and waited foreverrrrrrrr and then that line with Donald - ugh! But, we too had a great meal and a fantastic server, that helped make up for it all before we got into the restaurant.

    Nice move on sneaking out for a FP! :thumbsup2

    Sorry I've been MIA but we had a crazy weekend with the blizzard. We ended up with over 30'' of snow in our town. Here are a few pictures of the snow.


    Getting Christopher ready to head outside..

    Here was part of our driveway..

    I would have died shoveling if it wasn't for my neighbors that came over with their snow blowers.

    The 1 lane road on my street.

    [​IMG]

    From the side of the road where my mailbox is to the 'new' road is about 10-15 feet. I doubt I'll be getting mail for a few weeks.

    Juliana on the back porch with the snow over her head...

    A few drifts. My poor boat.

    They canceled school again tomorrow. Some of the cities around us still have roads that aren't plowed yet. We are supposed to have freezing rain tomorrow morning then rain. It is gonna be a mess out there because all the storm drains are covered. I am thankful that we never lost power.

    Hopefully I'll be back with an update soon.

    After seeing all the snow from this weekend, I've cemented the fact that moving to Florida was the best decision we have ever made!


    Back in'96 we lived in Allentown, PA and I remember we had a snowstorm dump over 36" of snow. We were helping my dad shovel the deck so it wouldn't collapse under the weight. Then I had the bright idea to jump off the deck into the snow (with my younger brother). And we sank. And were stuck. Not the best idea. :laughing:

    No worries! Nice to have you!

    Makes YOU feel old? How do you think I feel? :rolleyes:

    :rotfl::rotfl: :rotfl::rotfl:

    It's not that bad... except for the shoveling. :scared:

    :lmao:

    I know you got out eventually... or how else would you be typing this? :idea:



    Hey there Brook! :wave2:

    The line was crazy. You are right about waiting for Donald too. Why doesn't he just walk around the restaurant? :confused3

    That is a veteran DISer move. :rotfl2:

    Enjoy that warm weather you are getting!:thumbsup2:thumbsup2

    We might get more snow on Wednesday night. This is New England and people should be used to it by now. :goodvibes




    Hey Kelly! Thanks for reading!

    My back is killing me. If I didn't get help I would still be out there too. :sad2:

    I have on the news right now... looks like it is a 50/50 chance for Wednesday night/Thursday morning. If that happens, these kids are going to be going to school through July. :headache:

    We got spared the snow this time. We got about an inch and then it rained/melted and is basically gone.

    Your kids look like they're having a blast in it though...you need a snowfall like that every so often!

    Glad to hear you survived the storm! I was also lucky and did not lose power. However the storm put Murphy's Law into overdrive for me yesterday. My friends was supposed to come in Saturday for my bday, then she changed her flight to yesterday, she made it to Baltimore and her flight to Boston was cancelled! My street is pretty much a one way at this point and my neighbor decided to park his GINOURMOUS pickup truck in the street dispite the parking ban so I had to wake up him up at 7 am to move it. He wasn't happy I made him move it, but not my fault I live at the very end of a dead end and he parks like a loonatic! I did however enjoy the actual storm once I was home for the day on Friday.

    I do enjoy it. As I sit here now it's 63 going up to 68 today. I have though about moving back up North, but I have been in the South since Aug. of 1970 so my blood is to thin. At least that's what I keep telling myself. Woth2982 can't say I blame you with the neighbor. If ya can't follow the rules you get woken up.

    oh my that's a lot of snow! very pretty though!
    the kids look like they had fun! nice your neighbors helped out with the snowblowers and saved your back some pain :thumbsup2
    hope the rain/ice mix doesn't bring down any trees in the area and make a bigger mess for you all.

    WOW WOW WOW! That is a lot of snow. That beats our 27 inches a couple of years ago and I know how awful that was. With all the snow you get, you don't have your own snowblower? I think it is time you invest in one.

    Love the pictures of the kids...but they are growing way too fast for my liking. Tell them to stop right now. :lmao::lmao::lmao:

    Life has gotten (mostly) back to normal. Juliana went to school for the first time today since Thursday. The snow they were calling for tonight looks like it won't be more than a dusting or an inch.


    Even after 50 degrees and rain on Monday, we still have 2 ft on the ground. :lmao:

    I'll take 15-20 inches. This was crazy!



    Sorry you couldn't celebrate your birthday the way you wanted. One good thing was you didn't have to share your drinks with anyone! :lmao:

    It was nice of you to ask your neighbor to move it instead of calling a tow truck. ;)




    68? Must be nice! I think you are doing the right thing by staying in the south. ::yes::




    Luckily there was no snow on trees since it the 60mph winds blew it all out of there! :rotfl2:




    Mel's dad used to plow us but he got rid of his plow truck last year. Last winter wasn't bad at all and I never bought one. Looks like I'll be buying one this summer. :faint:

    They are growing fast. Way too fast. :faint::faint:

    We had just finished up eating breakfast at Tusker House and I had safari FPs in my pocket that we couldn't use till 10am. The girls needed to use the bathroom and Christopher needed a diaper change. We only had 15 minutes to kill before our window opened up. I'm glad I had FPs cuz the crowds we out in full force.

    [​IMG]

    We shopped in a few stores. My mom bought Melody a cool Mickey head shirt and Juliana scored some animal print Mickey ears.

    [​IMG]

    We parked the stroller and walked over to the FP return right at 10. The safari was already a 40 minute wait. It feels weird walking past all those poor saps in line. I try not to make any eye contact with them.

    [​IMG]

    It didn't take long before we weren't on a safari trying to stop poachers.

    Ut-Oh. We'd better brace ourselves. I see a bumpy ride in our future.

    [​IMG]

    I must say the animals were out in full force. I hope you are ready for numerous Kilimanjaro Safari pictures. It wouldn't be a complete trip report without them!

    I was hoping none of those people on the tour lost their footing... those gators (or are they crocs) looked mighty hungry.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We made it to the savanna, and there were quite a few giraffes walking right up to the trucks.

    [​IMG]

    Christopher wasn't all that impressed.

    [​IMG]

    Actually, he was being pretty fussy. I think he was just overtired. He calmed down pretty quickly though.

    The lioness was looking around checking out our truck. I wonder if she was hungry.

    [​IMG]

    The lion on the other hand...

    [​IMG]

    was passed out! I know you are all shocked!

    A warthog was sticking his head out of his burrow.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We evan saw a gorilla at the end

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not sure what he was doing... probably just wondering what everyone was staring at.




    Up next... more animals. More AK.

    great photos of all the animals! cool you saw a gorilla too!
    sorry Christopher didn't enjoy the whole safari. Ana looks very cute in her new ears!

    FYI - for the people looking at the crocs...they are strapped in with a "monkey tail" attached to their vests....we took the tour on Megan's bday trip and were attached many times for safety!

    That is one heck of a lot of snow!!!

    Love the safari. We saw lots of animals out too. Poor Christopher. that poor guy probably had no clue what the heck was going on being dragged all over the place with real and fake animals all over the place, but I am sure he had a good time too. ;)
