    Looks like a fun day at EPCOT!! I love Figment! I loved the old ride much better though, this new version is pretty lame! You can tell that Ashton LOVES his big sis!:lovestruc

I think we missed them because we skipped Honey I Shrunk the Audience!! I LOVE all of Ashton's adorable smiles!!! Looking forward to more, more, more!!!!:goodvibes

    My boys love Figment as well!

    There has been a whole lot of procreating going on in WDW. We saw momma ducks and their babies all over the place.

    Great update Connie!

    Figment really should have his own cartoon on the Disney channel. He'd fit right in with the other Playhouse Disney shows! Disney should really just hire me. I have all kinds of ideas for them! ;)

    I love the pic of Gwendolyn holding Ashton's hand as they walked in. You could tell she was really happy to take him on the ride! :cutie:

    I am finally caught up again :rolleyes1. I swear I can't seem to keep up with my Dising these days :guilty:. Gwendolyn is so good with Ashton, I wish Amanda took that kind of interest in her little brother :rolleyes1:sad2:.

    I love Epcot, I really think it is my favorite park. We didn't do as much WS stuff this trip as I would have liked because it was just sooooooooo hot.

    I hope you had fun with your family visit :goodvibes.

    we loved the walk on's or almost walkons (when the line was just at the end right before you loaded!):thumbsup2

    he was really amazed with the jumping waters...he was just standing there and you could see his body language and eyes that his brain was really taking it in :laughing:

    your welcome!

    Wendy I agree I rather the old version too! Yes, we were having a wonderful day, the weather was great...(it was hot in the sun, but the breeze helped and thankfully the humidity was low)...yes, Ashton loves his sister!!:hug:

    Yes, Alicia they should give you a chance; have you ever thought about applying?!?
    Figment would make a really cute cartoon!
    Gwendolyn really does sharing things with Ashton and he picks up with her so quick!
    It's exciting for both of them!

    Thanks! Dana--no worries...I had put my threads into folders before my trip and I am having a hard time keeping up too! I like having them all on one page.
    Girl, you need to get into the Disney spirit you are going back in TWO months! you need to start planning!

    Gwendolyn is really good with Ashton; Dayne is OK! he had his moments...I'm sure it was her age difference (I believe her and Dallas are about like Dayne and Ashton).

    We had a nice visit; they are here for the week. My mom and dad are bringing them back next Monday. I'm sure they are bored to tears by now (they are 16,14,&11).

    Finally loaded my mom and dad's pictures on the computer and photobucket. Will be back tonight to load their pictures up to this point tonight and I will also post our living seas visit

    Hope everyone is having a great day!
    Cooling off for a moment just finished grilling burgers and hot dogs and we are getting ready to hit the pool for the first time this summer. It feels like July instead of June this year...:eek:

    Great update, Connie. Even at my age, Figment is one of my favorites. My very favorite was the original; I thought the second version with all the white flowers, etc., was awful; the third version is better than the second, but still not nearly as good as the first. I love the photo of Ashton with the CM.
