    Yes, folks. She is one of the most considerate people I've ever traveled with. And you can't have her. She's mine. So there, Tink's BF!!!! :lmao:

    Cue ominous and foreboding music.

    Thank you. I know how hard it was, and yet how happy you were to stay at this resort with me, and I feel priviliged...honored really, that you considered it to be an option.

    Given that I can't even think of staying anywhere I've stayed with my mom right now, I can understand what kind of moments those would have been for you just thinking of your gram.

    And I love you, too.

    And just think, now your gram and my mom will be able to watch all our crazy antics and sit back and laugh.

    I try. :blush:

    Were he reading this he'd say, "There are days you can have her!" LOL
    Jerk.

    Some people say time heals all wounds. I don't know if this is true. But time does amplify the good memories and suppress the bad. We've discussed this in and out and sideways and I know that you know that someday, it'll be more smiles and less heartache.

    They'll likely also just shake their heads as we try heading over that bridge after one Pina Colava too many...

    You know, I was going to comment on this when I posted the pictures...LOL I will attest that the man was NOT actually running away from me with his child. He was walking. At a leisurely pace. I was just walking slower. And taking pictures every 3.5 steps.

    You suceed.

    I'm sure my DH would feel the same way about me right now, especially given the rampant pregnancy hormones. Thank goodness they're more level than they were in the first trimester. :lmao:

    I know this, in essence, because my Granddad has been gone for thirteen years now.

    I think that two Pina Colavas would probably be one too many for me, given how strong they were! And yet, we may have to try it. ;)

    Are you sure it wasn't CUTE MAN and cute child? ;)

    Awesome pictures! I love CBR at sunrise. I'll probably never see it first hand that way, so thanks for the pics! I also can't believe how green everything is! I guess I've been living in the desert too long.

    Well...you must be amazing...because I actually have a desire to wake up early on vacation and go walking around the resort...

    And that resort looks AMAZING!

    Awesome update!

    What a lovely, heartfelt update! So truly beautiful.

    You probably don't know this, without having read the very beginnings of my PTR, but some of my upcoming trip in Sept. is all about my gram as well. It was she who instilled my deep love of all things Disney, and I yearn to just sit and contemplate all that she was to me in a place she would have loved (we always went to DLR together when I was a child). If I may wax for a spell... her favorite drink was an apricot sour, and I am determined to have a silent toast in her honor at the Brown Derby (I'll be solo at that point). This was HER kind of place-being themed with her era, and I can't help that if she were alive, we would have really enjoyed being there together in a place like that!

    OK, so that was a very long way of saying, "I get it!" I really do.

    Ah, it's so good to have you back and regaling us with tales, Tink!!!

    I love early morning walks at Disney! I think there is just a certain play of sunlight across those buildings that can't be found anywhere else. :lovestruc

    I am glad you had a few moments to sit and remember your gram in the courtyard. :hug:

    I didn't realize how much I had been missing this trip report!!

    Your pictures of CBR are just breathtaking!! I think on my next trip I'm going to go for an early morning walk and just enjoy the resort! What a splendid idea!!!

    Can't wait for more!

    I can't express how jealous I am that you can do this. I have to get up at 5 am daily too, but my internal alarm wants nothing to do with being up at that hour. I can't tell you how often I oversleep and am running out the door barely presentable to be able to catch my train. On days off, my internal alarm is thrilled that it doesn't have to get up until about 7 or so. I live with the hope that one of these days it will get with the program.

    What a lovely way to start the day. I'm a bit scared about your scratchy throat though. Over the years I've become well acquainted with the Disney scratchy throat. Never really ends well.

    It's wonderful that you got to have those moments to yourself to be in touch with your grandmother.


    Love this spot!

    Honestly, I dunno. I never saw his face. And don't even GO THERE with any comments on his back side. LOL

    Honestly, I loved that the most about CBR and the Poly.
    I mean, I'd stay in a broom closet to go to Disney, but I miss that part when I stay at POP and the other values.

    LOL! I do it all the time because, in a way, I HAVE to. I need to do something with myself. I'm not the type who can just laze around in bed, unfortunately. I'd recommend trying it at least once. Timing it as the sun is just over the horizon is perfect with all the purples, pinks and oranges!

    I feel a lot of love in Disney, and it's not just the Mouse's Magic (or any of the alcoholic beverages I consume LOL)! I think that's a big reason why I keep going back.

    Oh.

    And :hug: to you and your gram.

    Good to be back. I saw a picture of Harrison Ford the other day with Spielberg and Lucas. I immediately thought of you. LOL

    It's like the smell of the GCH and the monorail. It's like the taste of an Itzakadoozie or a Mexican Margarita. All of those things can be had elsewhere but somehow they're better in Disney.

    That IS you that recently became my friend of FB, yes? LOL

    DO IT!

    (No pressure.)

    There are mornings my wiring is faulty, it's just not often and NEVER on vacation. BF is often the same way, so I might have company on my morning walks in September, but I think we'll do our best to stay in bed until at least 6:30.

    Look at us.
    We're wild.
    We're crazy.
    Sleeping in so "late".

    :lmao:


    Never really ends well is right.

    On a better note, cough drops aren't as expensive in the World as one might think.

    :thumbsup2

    If TK and I have an accord, I'd like to write the next chapter about the rest of our evening at MK.

    Aye?

    I'd love for you to write the next chapter!

    I think it will probably be more interesting coming from your perspective anyway, given some of the...entertainment...I was providing that evening. ;)

    Hey folks! Tink is gone on vacation for about the next ten days or so, but I know she wants to do the next update. I'll try to see if I can fill in with anything in the mean time, like my rapier wit and charm. ;)

    (This same post will be on my other trip reports.)

    I've been thinking of DIS names for the kiddos. Instead of DS1 and DS2...which kind of makes me think of Dr. Suess and Thing 1 and Thing 2, I think we'll go with a Nemo theme.

    When, DS1 was little, he adored Nemo. We watched it every day for quite some time. Henceforth, he'll be Nemo.

    And, in my mind, I've been thinking of the new baby as Squirt. I even bought a Squirt plush for him in Disney long before I knew if he was a boy or a girl, because I figured Squirt was gender nuetral enough to be a cool plush toy for either.

    Long story short, Squirt will be making his debut on the EAC very shortly.

    I've discussed it with my doctor's office, and I'm scheduled to be induced on Monday. For those of you who know me on Facebook, please just keep this on the DIS. I'm not going to post anything on there at this time.

    I may be going in on Sunday night (if my cervix isn't thinned enough) but the last time I was checked, it was thinning on its own. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow, and that's when we'll decide if I have to go in on Sunday night and have a gel put on, or if I will go in on Monday morning for the straight induction.

    DH and I are really excited.

    My sister and her husband are arriving on Monday night, with plans to sleepover my father's house with Nemo. Nemo is thrilled that his aunt and uncle are coming, that he gets to sleep over my dad's, and there's been talk of teaching Nemo how to ride a two wheel bike, which my sister insists on purchasing for him. She's really doing everything she can (as the older sibling, I'm sure she remembers what it was like when I was born) to make this special for Nemo, and it's really heartwarming for me.

    And bittersweet. My mom and Nemo had a ton of plans for when Squirt was due to arrive, and, obviously, those won't happen. So as we forge ahead and make new plans, we are happy, and sad, all at once.

    Since I've been on maternity leave, I've really been missing my mom. I have more time to think about her, and part of me is still in shock that she's not here. It seems surreal.

    I know she'll be with me in spirit, which is comforting, but my heart wants her physical presence, no matter how much my head knows its not possible.

    At any rate, I appreciate all your love and support, and how excited you've all been about this baby coming. In some ways, it's almost like you've given me little pieces of her enthusiasm, and for that, I'm really, truly grateful.

    And, heck, I'm grateful that come Monday / Tuesday, I won't be pregnant anymore!!!!

    We can't wait to hold Squirt in our arms, and welcome this addition to our family. Unless I get checked out tomorrow and have progressed farther than I thought, that's the game plan. I'll definitely keep you posted, if not myself, than through Tink or LegoMom.

    And again, thanks.
