    Great update yet agian....

    love all the pictures. the one of the 2 Stitches made me :rotfl:

    You can add me to the list of never seeing the birdhouses, they are pretty cool looking. You have a thing for bids huh?

    OK I'm sorry my kids are highly distracted me right now, Aldine just came out of her room saying she is freezing and wearing a hughe fleece sweatshirt....:confused3 :confused: It's like 90 degrees outside girl!

    sorry about that,

    anyways, the Soarin cert is so cool....that was awesome for the 3-C's :cool1:

    bummer for you. riding in the front is so awesome. I must be spoiled I have ridden in the front both times I have ever ridden it. :cool2:

    I am so stumped by where you are going next...can't wait to find out!

    That Soarin' pass is really cool. I'm glad your DH and boys were able to experience that (and how cool that he came on here to talk about it!).

    I have no idea where you're going next, but it's almost 2am, so I'm not sure I know my name right now either.

    Your pictures are gorgeous. I'm taking a digital SLR this time around, so I'm hoping ot get some decent ones.

    Can't wait to see the next surprise!

    Thanks Karen :) I think my pictures are okay, but I think Lady Lallie's are better - I want her camera (and I have it on my wishlist at Amazon :rolleyes1).

    Yes, I believe it was! I think all we got for snacks were cookies.

    Well, I wouldn't want to go RIGHT now - too hot for me! But, yes - I am starting to get a bit of an itch to go back. Don't tell Chuck that though. ;)

    He's very photogenic, isn't he? ;)

    I believe they were near Test Track, but honestly - I don't remember.

    He knows how to live it up, doesn't he?

    Soarin' is worth the 40 minute wait. :thumbsup2 I'll be posting another installment in a few.

    I am, aren't I? :rotfl:

    Thanks Kathy! Or maybe we were rubbing off on Stitch! ;)

    Do you remember where the birdhouses were?

    I love being able to show new things to my readers! :goodvibes

    Thanks Tracy :)

    I can't wait to post the pictures from the next installment.

    Everyone remembers dessert! :thumbsup2

    Well, then, an extra special :welcome: for you! How long have you lived in the area?

    We'll start a new thread here on the Dis for posting birdhouse pictures. ;)

    Yes it was. :)

    I wish there had been pictures!

    Don't know that I have a thing for birds, but our whole family are nature lovers. :thumbsup2 Not a fan of "pet" birds like parakeets though. They freak me out when they get out of their cages.

    I've been in the front row on Soarin' a couple of times.

    Chuck will pop on here and there to give his commentary. ;)

    The digital SLR is kind of a pain to lug around, but the payoff is worth it. I do think my smaller/cheaper camera does a pretty decent job and it takes video so it's nice to have both.

    I was on a mission!! Spending countless hours on the Dis reading trip reports had introduced me to a little something called...




    BEVERLY



    When I was researching our very first trip, I had written down a note with just that one word, "beverly" to remind myself about it. I had laughed so many times while looking through pictures of unsuspecting people taking their first sip of the infamous Bev. Their faces were all distorted in horror as their tastebuds met this new flavor, expecting a sweet soda and instead getting - well - Beverly! They looked back at their loved ones as if to say, "How could you do this to me??" All the while their so called loved one is snickering and busily snapping away with the camera so that such pictures could be shared with others for their amusement. I mean - really! What a mean thing to do to the people you love!



    And I couldn't wait to try it on my own family!!

    During our first two trips I wasn't able to locate Club Cool. I probably didn't look all that hard since we were so busy with everything else. The Beverly trick wasn't top on my list of priorities. This trip was a different story. This was a trip to see and do all of those things we hadn't got around to doing before. I made sure I knew where to find Club Cool before we left on our trip.

    And that's where we were headed.

    Finally! Success! We headed inside and I got my camera all ready. Then I told Chuck and Sully to go try Beverly.

    Me: I've heard it's really good!! (said with a somewhat straight face)

    Chuck: Okay

    Sully: Okay

    [​IMG]

    Wait for it...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    There's the money shot!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Can it really be that bad if Sully goes for another sip??

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now, I tried Beverly myself. And I really didn't think it was that bad. Tasted like grapefruit juice to me. The one thing I will say about the drink is that it has a long aftertaste. I think the slogan for Beverly should be: The taste that keeps on giving!

    My favorite of the sodas was Costa Rica. Yummy!

    With my mission complete, it was time to move on. We were headed to the World Showcase.

    This was really neat to see:

    Not quite sure about this one...

    A little cooling off:

    Why didn't I stop and get fastpasses for this while we were here? *kicking myself* (yes, that's foreboding)

    And as we first entered WS:

    Awesome Beverly pics...Chuck's face is priceless! Good job! :thumbsup2 My boys LOVE Club Cool. I think we went in there 3-4 times.

    I love the boys' Phineas and Ferb T-shirts. My boys are really into Phineas and Ferb these days. I tried to get Jonah a t-shirt before we went on our trip, but couldn't get one in his size. They're really cute! And playing in the cool misting area...too fun! They look like they are really enjoying themselves!

    Uh-oh...sounds like some KimPossible trouble. :rolleyes:

    :lmao: I love when people get tricked into drinking the Beverly. They didn't suspect anything when you pulled out the camera to take pictures?

    Loving your trip report and what a cute family you have! I too love the Beverly trick. we pulled it this yr on my niece and nephew. my husband almost ruined it b/c he was getting ready to warn them NOT to drink the Beverly soda when i squeezed his hand gave him a wide eyed look. The expression on their face after they tried it was priceless!

    :rotfl2::lmao:BEVERLY!!!:rotfl2::lmao:

    Great shots. Now why didn't I think of that when you mentioned a surprise.

    I am sitting here wondering if my BFF and her family have tried the Beverly, just might have to get them. Do you remember Jacob's pics, and it wasn't even the Beverly.:sad2:

    LOVE the Beverly shots! Hysterical!! Sand animals are really cool.

    We've been in VB a year this month. Prior to this we were in Camp Lejeune and after this, we'll probably be heading back there! I'm sure you've already found that we have a Disney Store in Lynnhaven Mall!

    I believe the birdhouses are located right behind Innoventions East closer to Test Track. Currently, the Pixie Hollow Fairy Garden is located next to the area. Here is a picture of one birdhouse from Allears taken in 2004:

    [​IMG]

    I remember watching the birds going in and out of the birdhouses, but I didn't take any pictures. I remember thinking... "they're just birdhouses... why would I take a picture of them?" :lmao:

    Oh... here's another picture that might help place them:
