She is needing to see about changing their reservation since their number of travelers has changed and they have park tickets and rooms all together. The problem is, I'm not sure if she is up to making that phone call. I just don't think she is able to speak the words that need to be spoken....
I hope there is some way that I can make the call for her.
That would be a hard call to make...my heart aches for them.

Very nice! I love to hear my ring tones when my kids call - Jill is Small World, Trent is You've Got a Friend in Me, and Drew is I Wanna Be Like You. I like to hear it when it's not my kids, too - it's SpectroMagic.

Yes, we have been up and down, too. We've also had the constant winds. Still, we are much better off than people up north, so I will gladly take my crazy Mid Tenn weather.

We got a black ice day! There was maybe half inch of snow, but the winds and cold temps were freezing bridges, so we got a free day!

Thanks Memom for continuing to bring happiness!

Spring is around the corner and I think we all could use it. Spring always means to me hope and light and happiness ( and a really busy schedule lol)
We are, indeed, blessed. I can't wait to hug my girls again tomorrow morning!

I'll sure continue to try on that happiness thing.

I'm telling you, when I get off the plane in Orlando and see and feel the sunshine even inside the airport, I come to life.

And I have just switched over to "I'm going to Disney World next month!"

Have a fun and safe weekend, Katie!

I think most of the east is! I think you have to get pretty far down south right now to get some decent temperatures on this side of the country. It is 61 and sunny in Disney World, and in the low 50's even in southern Georgia. I am staying warm inside right now, but I need to venture out to the grocery store at some point.

Well, well, well....

we got a snow day!

We only had about half an inch of snow, but with the cold temperatures and winds, they said there were a lot of icy bridges, so they called us out.



************************************************


So, I guess you've kept warm this past day and a half with your continuous dancing on the Boardwalk lawn.

Let's take a break and go inside for a while.









I need to crop the lady's backside out of this one.



I still have not explored all of this resort. I hope to roam around a little more on our first Epcot day (arrival day) in March. The plan is to go straight to Epcot when we check in, and then on the way back 'home' in the evening, walk over to Boardwalk first and explore a little more.









Then it was back to Beach Club for us. We had never eaten here,



so it was time to mark another Disney eatery off of our list.





Brooklynn chose a hot dog, and I got a gigantic hamburger.



We found a table along the sidewalk (very close to the wrecked ship) and enjoyed our meal as we watched fireworks.











When Anita, Marc, and Baylor came back from Epcot, Anita, Baylor and Brooklynn went up in the ship to watch.

Marc and I took the lazy way out and were satisfied to see what we could from where we were.





Baylor and Brooklynn and their pretty glow necklaces.











The view from where I sat.









To my left.







It was so nice to be sitting there in this lovely place enjoying fireworks and the company of good friends.

And speaking of friends, guess who else came along to join us?

Connor and Chelsea and their sweet Mom.



Well, Sweet Mom isn't in that picture. She's coming up in a second.

And Gavin and his Mom and Dad.



Yeah, that was Mom and Dad, but not Gavin. I can't remember if he was asleep in his stroller or what.

Jackie tells me that this is a common look for teenage Chelsea.



It could mean, "Lady, stop taking so many flippin' pictures."



It was then decided that Marc and Anita would give a tour of their humble Beach Club abode, so we all headed to the room. Next time, we'll make that visit with the group. This time, you can just sit under the umbrella and enjoy people watching until then.

Hi MemomStill here reading alongBeen busy with work and life in general.Your lovely Trip report helps ease the burden of this yucky cold weather over here in the UK.Sounds like the weather isnt very kind to you guys either though.
I am sorry for all the heartache that you have posted about recently.My thoughts are with those affected.
Bet you cant wait for your trip to the world next month. So glad Jill is getting to have a trip also( hopefully it will hold more happy times than stressful times for her!!)
We have booked to go again this year ,to celebrate my 40th.Soo excited. 2 glorious weeks at Pop. We go August 16th-30th.Never been August before. Our last 3 trips have all been May/June time.Us Brits arent used to heat like they get in August!!!

Loved watching the fireworks with you and Brooklyn today! I am at work...

Last Friday when we watched the news we felt so bad for the children of Davidson Co, because they still had to go to school. On the Channel 2 school closings map they were the "hole" in the middle of all the shaded counties. Well alas...today Wilson Co. was the "hole", so we are at work and school while the rest of you enjoy your long weekend.

The more and more I see of your photos of the Boardwalk and being able to see the fireworks, the more excited I become about staying there in December.

You got some great shots of the fireworks. And what fun...having another DIS meet with a nice group.

Everything about your evening seems like it was so much fun! The Boardwalk is such a beautiful resort, and I really want to stay there, but DANG do those chairs creep me out! Hahha.

Watching fireworks while eating yummy Disney food sitting at Stormalong Bay? I mean really, I don't think it gets much better than that!!

I love the Boardwalk area!! My favorite night on our last trip was eating at ESPN and then watching the performers and the fireworks. . I think we will stay in the MK area on our next trip, but will definitely have a Boardwalk evening.

You have no idea how much I would love one of those chairs for my classroom. Then when one of my kids asks me a question that I have just given the instructions for (and they weren't listening) they could just go sit there and think a spell.....
