    It's good to know you've got three happy, healthy boys to drive you nuts again! :dance3:

    We've got an ADR for Whispering Canyon on August 1st. The guys are very much looking forward to this, as it was one of their favorite meals ever, according to them.

    Of course, they seem to be relatively happy at every meal we eat! :laughing:

    Catching up - glad to hear Sully's Lyme got treated, if that's what it was! Welcome to your new home - and yay for mostly unpacked!

    I am glad that Sully is feeling better. The first Disney restaurant I ever ate it was WCC for breakfast. At the time I didn't know what sorts of things go on there. I just remember the waiter being so funny.

    Probably one of the most photographed spot in the resorts.

    :sad2::confused3:sad2:

    So by the look on the ladies face behind the boys I would say that she has been waiting a while, I wonder if she knew about ADR's

    WC is one of my favorite places to eat, it's great place to go for breakfast too.

    This is another place that the Cast Member can make or break your experience.

    What no pictures of you Hokey Pokeying..:confused3

    Another great update Carissa

    Now I have to get over to Kathy's TR's or she is going to get the whip out and beat my backside...:woohoo:....I mean..:scared1:

    :rotfl: WCC does seem to be a favorite among the men!

    It's nice to be settling in! I really like this place. It has its flaws, but most places you rent will have those.

    I keep forgetting they do breakfast! I'll have to put that on my "to remember list". :thumbsup2

    Yeah - I'm sure you were looking at her face. :rolleyes1

    I need to get caught up on hers too!

    Carissa, great update!!! The pics are fabulous. I love the before and after pic of the dinner at WCC!! :thumbsup2 That was cool to do that.....I never remember to ever take food pictures. :mad: I absolutely love dining at WCC!! You always have some real family fun at that restaurant!!! :yay:

    So glad to hear Sully is much better!!! :goodvibes That had to have been scary for you and Chuck. :sad1: I felt so bad for Owen, reading your trippie. It is tough when your kiddos aren't feeling well and especially tough when you are on vacation. :sad1:

    Thanks Karen - there have been many times were I forgot the before picture and just got the after so I thought both might be good. :rotfl:

    He was pretty miserable, but thankfully it didn't last long. :thumbsup2

    I found my notes! :cool1: The only thing I forgot was that before heading to WL, we took a short dip in the pool. I believe that was the only other time we actually made it over there. All three boys ended up trying out the slide. I had a hard time grabbing hold of Connor immediately so he went under the water and wasn't too thrilled. We should have put a lifevest on him. He was willing to try it again with one on, but we never got around to it.

    So, once we returned from our dinner at WCC, everyone rested in the room for a little bit before our reservation for the carriage ride. I decided to take my nice camera and head outside for pictures.

    **WARNING**

    I took a lot.

    It was a beautiful night and I enjoyed the time alone.

    Great pics Carissa. I'll have to sneak away for a little while to take pics on our next trip. Did I tell you we switched from SoG to POR. POR is actually going to be cheaper. It will be nice to be home.:goodvibes This just made my wait a bit worse.

    Ahhhh...POR.....**sigh**

    Your pictures are beautiful. Believe it or not, I like the one of the bird on the lamp the best. :confused3 The sky in the background, the lighting..Nice job!

    Did you enjoy the carriage ride? That's something we have not done at POR. Can't wait to hear about it!

    Fabulous pictures, Car! I love the whole atmosphere of that resort! We've stayed at POFQ twice... I wanted Riverside the second time but couldn't get it!!

    The carriage ride is a great way to tour both sister resorts... I'm looking forward to hearing about your ride!!

    Just beautiful, Carissa. Did you have to do lots of practicing with your camera to get such nice shots?

    Thank you so much! :goodvibes

    Awesome!!

    Thanks :)

    Am I going to turn you into a bird lover?? :rolleyes1 I love those pictures too.

    Thanks Kathy - POR is so beautiful and peaceful.

    You should stay there! You'd love it. :thumbsup2

    I don't know if we'll ever get a chance to stay there again, but I'd love to.

    Thanks! You should at least visit sometime. :goodvibes

    I've had the camera for about 5 years. It's pretty much luck with getting nice shots. I still don't understand the lighting and all of that so sometimes they come out too dark. When I went out for the walk by myself, I took time to think about what might make interesting photos. Those bird shots were complete luck because I don't think I realized the lighting/clouds would have that effect when I took them.

    Thanks for the compliment on the pictures! :goodvibes
