Flying is really expensive. Our tickets were less than $600pp, but not by much!
Yikes. And it's not like you're even going overseas.

Just to give you perspective, all four loads that I've done so far would have easily fit in my home washer, plus the fifth load.
:sad2:

A lot of the clothes that I wore earlier in the trip were no longer appropriate
:scared1:

:rotfl2:

Well this was nothing like that in fact I had to look hard to even find some.
So, you guys got any butterflies in your butterfly tent?

Those flower gardens though...:goodvibes

The troll.


Probably posting inflammatory comments online as we speak.

Fun fact (and this totally gives away everyone's age) me, Fran and my Dad are all snakes.
Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?

At this point Fran texted me one word. Caramels??? I don't know how she knew we were in Germany, I wasn't transmitting my location to her.
:rotfl2:That's truly a gift. Just be glad she didn't ask for ice cream.

Sometimes... sometimes you get lucky. I did recently. :)

Ouch. :headache:
Hopefully we'll get the money for the third seat back.
Fingers crossed for you guys.

I'm assuming you do not have some kind of heavy duty washer?
A lot of the clothes that I wore earlier in the trip were no longer appropriate weather-wise.
You can't wear racy clothing when the weather turns prudish.
the humidity evidently makes the cold more chilling.
Humidity sucks.
I had mine on a plate with the leftover creamed spinach.
Blech. Pass.
After Fran ate her breakfast she told me that she was feeling kind of sick and wanted to stay in the room instead of going to Epcot for lunch at the Kiosks.
Oh, too bad. Sorry to hear that.
Well this was nothing like that in fact I had to look hard to even find some. Mom said it might be too early and they weren't awake yet.
There were lots when I was there. Maybe they hadn't come out of their chrysalis yet?
Like this shot.
Forgot to quote it, but really like the butterfly one too.
The Bromeliad Dragon.
Dang. Missed that. And it looks cool.
And they had these neat little zodiac figures.
Missed all of those too!
Fun fact (and this totally gives away everyone's age) me, Fran and my Dad are all snakes.
So you were born in 77, huh?
We also tried the Warm Berry Strudel, it wasn't very warm, but it was still good.


Dang, that looks good.
At this point Fran texted me one word. Caramels??? I don't know how she knew we were in Germany, I wasn't transmitting my location to her.
:lmao: You guys are in synch!
We checked out the trains for a while
Because one must.
The Tri colored Cheese Tortellini were my favorite!
Pretty dish. :)
We were getting full and chilly, so after we found Lady and the Tramp.
Missed them too.

    I literally LOL'd at this one. Showed it to Fran and she didn't get it.
    Glad I could make you laugh :)
    The club has been meeting for almost 50 years now. Once a month they gather at a member's house, they call it "Third Friday Tasting", the member gets to choose the varietal of wine and appetizers.

    These were the sakes she served.
    What are great idea! My inlaws do a dinner party once a month with friends- the host picks the main and the theme- the theme can be anything..really fun! When life slows down a bit, I want to start something.
    I was skeptical my first time, but it's one of my favorite rides now!
    Same!
    Pretty, but there were def not that many around hey!

    Awww! I like these guys!
    And they had these neat little zodiac figures.


    Neat idea!

    was glad to see that they had changed the applesauce on this one. Last time it was chunky, this time it was pureed.


    Yum, although I prefer applesauce with lots of cinnamon
    t this point Fran texted me one word. Caramels??? I don't know how she knew we were in Germany, I wasn't transmitting my location to her. I got these.


    She's psychic it seems! Those look delish!
    My Dad got a couple Dark Chocolate salted caramels
    Mmm I love milk and dark chocolate



    The pizza wasn’t bad.


    Those book like pretty good indeed.

    I HATE the butterfly tent. Its hot and muggy and packed with people with bugs flying at you...its like my own personal hell. LOL You had some good choices of food along the way!

    We went to the butterfly tent and I was underwhelmed. I had avoided the place in the past because I had pictured swarms of flying pretty bugs and you were sort of dodging them and trying not to have them land on you. Well this was nothing like that in fact I had to look hard to even find some. Mom said it might be too early and they weren't awake yet.
    I think they also try to keep it from being too crowded so people hurt the butterflies? If it was chilly maybe they also weren’t active?

    That’s hilarious! I guess you have a telephathic connection? Also, I love those caramel/marshmallow swirls!

    Anxiously awaiting!
    And then I made your head spin! :laughing:

    Yes, and then you can have a delicious hash too!
    I forgot all about including this. Well I'll need to start a new list again soon. I've reached the bottom of my page already.

    And that was what propmted the phone call this morning. ;)
    Well I'm glad we got this sorted out.

    THat looks really good!!
    That's usually how she asks me to fix her leftover steak, even at home.

    I think you were there a little early in the Festival. They put the chrysalses in there and they actually have to hatch, so by the time I got there a few weeks later there were hordes of them!!
    That makes sense. Then it would have been the swarm of bugs I was afraid of!

    I think that was my favorite!
    It was definitely high on my list too, but I really liked Piglet and the Cars figures as well.

    I love this!! My parents host "wine parties" - but not on that frequent of a basis. Usually it's every quarter or so, and they've only been doing it for a year or two. I don't usually make the drive to attend, but next up is a bourbon party so I will definitely be there ;) I am going to save the picture of the sake menu - for future reference :teacher:
    Because there are enough people in the club their hosting duties only come around every a6-8 months, so it's not so bad.

    Yeah, nothing like other butterfly tents I've been to.
    I didnt even know butterfly tents were a thing.

    I can't believe I missed those too o_O I was not very attentive during Flower & Garden this year, apparently. Must have been preoccupied... with a few margaritas :rotfl:
    With the parents there, this was a much less "drinkey" trip.

    Hope you guys have stayed safe with the earthquakes this weekend!
    Yeah, no problem. They were far enough away that we weren't affected, we just felt them. I hope I've used up my earthquake quota for this lifetime and won't be at the center of another one again!

    Wow... crazy how much of Disney springs was shut down essentially for Raglan Road on St Patrick's day. Nice score on those fp at DHS that afternoon!

    I feel like epcot really is the coldest place to be on a cool day at Disney. I've noticed that on our December trips. Seems like the wind blowing across World Showcase Lagoon really cuts through you.
