    I love the crazy face pictures. I also really love the picture with the rocks. Okay, I am a nerd when it comes to things like pictures of rocks, there is so much to see in them. Yes, I am a nerd for nature.:lmao:

    I have a question? The lines for the turnstiles were THIS long at 7:30 am?? That is incredible with it being that early before park opening at 8! Did they open a few minutes early to wait at the rope at main street?

    I am going to have to get there super super early if the lines were this long a half hour before opening....yikes! Trying to get my plan together....

    Leaving tomorrow!! :banana::cool1:

    It was kinda fun doing faces......everyone gets out of their shell!!

    Yup we were there just before 7:30....I was surprised by the length of the lines....especially since it was a Wednesday & that is typically a lighter day year round!

    UGH!!! I got a warning email saying yesterday that I was nearing my limit on photobucket...so I went to my 2nd account for more uploads. I got another email tonight (now keep in mind....I quit using the 1st acct) & they said I had exceeded so all my pics from that acct are gone in my PTR & TR!!! :scared1: I upgraded so they're supposed to be reinstated....but I don't know how soon.....THIS REALLY SUCKS!!!!

    That does suck. I use several different ones. I am fickle.

    Oh my gosh...I just caught completely up on your TR.

    Your family is just lovely. Everyone seems so patient with each other...I just love the shots of the older boys with the little ones, being wonderful big brothers. Also, the way you have family systems in place where you trade off and some go back to the room with what seems like no arguments is just wonderful.

    It's so obvious there is a whole lot of love in that family of yours. It's humbling.

    :)

    Thank you very much! We had a discussion during the planning stages on how we would handle the nap/bedtimes for the twins & kids. Everyone agreed to make 2 in charge for the day & not have 2 at nap & 2 different ones at bedtime. This did work out & everyone knew when they would be on "duty"....so no surprises. It did feel like you missed a lot of the day when on duty....but it was fair & equal & all worked out in the end.

    We are very close & we survived....so that's a testiment in itself!! :)

    Gonna be a little break before I get the next posting up.....I upgraded my photobucket acct because all my earlier pics have disappeared for using to much bandwidth........unfortunately it upgraded the wrong acct so I am now working on uploading all those photos again. It's a lengthy project but at least it will put all my disney trip photos on one acct!!! Will check in tomorrow!!

    Ugh on Photobucket (although I am seeing your pics!)

    I can't believe we stayed at PPH and didn't have dinner or the Kitchen Sink there. We had planned to the night we came back from our Hollywood Adventure and it was just too late when we got back.

    That surfer Goofy is at Pop Century in WDW as well. When we walked into the hotel I truly felt "home". It was a nice feeling for sure!

    I am sooo glad to hear that you enjoyed your meal at PCH grill. We have ressies there for our trip for my DD3's Birthday dinner. I thought that the make your own pizza would go over well with her and my niece..and by your pics..I can rest assured that I made the right choice..:thumbsup2

    Oh man Laurie that sucks about Photobucket. I never even knew you could max that thing out but then when I add photos after awhile I delete them cuz I guess I was always afraid of that somehow. Glad to know that that CAN happen. EEK! I am sorry you have to do that and to have to pay. YUCK! Hope it isn't too much of a pain and thanks for doing all this for us. Really enjoying this! It's truly like being there! :)

    You missed a good meal!! I've wanted to stay at the PPH....I like the laid back feel of it!!

    You should be pleased!! Remind them about her birthday!! We went last year for our 25th anniversary & they brought out a balloon bouquet of (I think) 21 balloons....it was huge & we were handing them out to everyone in the restaurant!!

    You can only upload a certain amount in a month's time (10 bandwidth) & if you exceed it they disabled your links.....so all my pics from the PTR & the first few days of the TR are missing. So I'm now re-uploading it on the "PRO" account which is unlimited bandwidth....just a pain in the tushy!!!

    Laurie mom and I stayed at PPH for the ladies trip this past year and it was REALLY nice. The room was nice sized and bigger than both the DLH AND the GCH standard rooms AND they treated us REALLY awesome for mom's birthday. Went above and beyond and it was just a really nice stay. I will DEF stay there again!

    Oh, thanks Laurie!! I will remind them. I did order the Princess bucket cake thingy, and 2 favor bags for DD3 and my niece, but the reservationist said I would need to remind them at the dinner. Those pizzas look like fun for the kiddos and the price of food there is definitely reasonable.:goodvibes

    I loved my stay at the DLH....but I'm actually disappointed with their remodel.....so if I would stay at one of the resorts...I think I'd go with the PPH!

    Yes, let them know about the extras you ordered as well.....just good to remind them!!

    I was feeling a little guilty not getting anything new up today.....so here's a start to our Knott's Berry Farm Day, July 30.

    We started our day at the Storyteller's Cafe at the Grand Californian Hotel. Beautiful restaurant in a beautiful hotel. We had done a lunch here in 2005 but never been to this character meal. We were seated almost immediately & started taking pictures of the interior:

    I was sitting there, when a gal comes up from behind & says....I recognize those twins......I turn around to see Jenn (GrizBuzz)....one of the DIS Divas. I know Jenn & her family live in Switzerland so I was quite shocked to see her standing there!! I hadn't seen where she would be visiting Disneyland...so a pleasant surprise!! This was their last morning & was happy I got a couple minutes to chat with her*+*+*+*+DIS Meet-Up #2*+*+*+*

    [​IMG]

    The chef came out & put a special plate together for Shyann:

    Addy had the Jr Scramble & Anthony had the Mickey Waffles:

    Derek & I got the Banana Stuffed French Toast:

    Betty got the Denver Omelet:

    Tyler, Nick & Mike all got the buffet. Here's a few pics of their plates:

    When I get the next post on here.....how about some characters?!!
