I had forgotten about that until I read this so thanks for the chuckle

I remember when McDonald's used to have el' cheapo burgers on Super Bowl Sunday!

I hate horn honker fries! I like the crispy ones! I need to tell Hunter that story. I know that he'll laugh like crazy.

I love every bit of your TR, thank you for sharing your beautiful family and trip with us.
Thank you! It's been great writing the report and reliving the memories.

The drive home ALWAYS seems so looooong! If we had a decent sized airport in our area, the airfare for us to fly might not be that bad. But, as it is, our airport is so small and we'd have to drive to a larger airport 2 1/2 hours away.

Hope you'll join in on the pre-trip report!

Loved your parting shots of CBR. Beautiful.

And the Disney signs

But I especially loved the first picture of the tunnel in Mobile. I thought you were back on Space Mountain!

I know you have a little wrap-up, and then

Bring on the PTR!

:
Actually, it's NOT over. I've got the wrap-up to post.

I said the same thing about the Mobile tunnel! Great minds think alike!

Pre-trip report just started!

Loved your TR! It was very entertaining as always Looking forward to your PTR!
We don't have any tunnels in our area at all with Mobile probably being the closest. I think it's super neat!

That's a neat thing for your mother to have kept! I bet the carpet was shag.

You were the first to post on the pre-trip report.

LOVED your final pics at the resort, how beautiful! And the pics home were great...who took your pic at the rest stop? Camera timer? Loved it! That IS a long drive though!

Camera timer! I was surprised that I figured out how to do it. Actually, now that I think about it, I think Hunter figured it out.

Car horns WERE made for honking, it keeps people out of my lane, which seems to be happening a lot lately. Rachel has become very aware of cars since Drivers Ed looms and she said this week she can't believe how many people swerve into our lane when we are driving..it is GOOD to be a defensive driver, some people are so distracted they have NO idea where their cars are going.

Good for Rachel watching how others drive. It's like I told Hunter, it's not just you that you have to look out for but for other cars as well.
Back to the PTR I am so READY!!!

It was a great vacation! I loved almost every minute of it(can't forget the medication meltdown)!

Sad your trip is all over. But on the flip side.....that just means it's almost time for you to be going back!!
Are you still planning that 1 night at POR? Even though it is so much like your own home, I know you are going to like it there.

And, here I am fussing about it being 50 today. I'm sure that you'd take that over snow right now.

Changed POR to POFQ. Will be posting details in my pre-trip report.

I like how you've ended your Trip Report just at the right time to get a PTR started for your May trip!

I'm glad your vacation ended with you all safely arriving home.
Our local weather also includes your area and I think about ya'll when they give Arkansas weather. We were going to come up your way a few weeks back when Cirque du Soliel was there. But, the timing wasn't right and we didn't make it.

It was a bittersweet moment! I was glad to be home but ready to go back to Disney already.

The Agony & The Ecstasy!

The Agony & The Ecstasy!

I started this trip report on June 11, 2012, and, now, 199 pages, almost 3,000 posts and 265,947 views later, itís time to wrap it up! Wow! I canít believe those numbers! Who would have ever thought it? I certainly never did! I'd like to give a great big THANK YOU to all of you who stuck it out with me, who relived the good and the bad with me and who laughed with me. I really do appreciate it!

Iím elated to post that there really isnít much ďagonyĒ to write about other than the afternoon/night that went haywire on the cruise. That, though, was due to Johnís medication change-over and his epilepsy and could have happened whether we were at home or on vacation. There were a few little blips like the poop smell that was in the air in our cruise stateroom, the rude castmember at Guest Relations and the fact that we didnít get to visit with Christy for very long because Johnís lingering problems.

The ďecstasyĒ is a whole different story! I could go on and on about the ecstasy moments like the fact that we took our very first cruise and sunned on a private island, that we were all together as a family at the Happiest Place on Earth, that we got to see Disney through Jesseís first-timer eyes, that we pulled off the surprise of taking the family to see Cirque du Soliel and that we laughed until our sides ached many times over.

The memories that we made on this trip will forever live in our hearts!

Sad that your tr is nearly over but glad that your next trip is nearly here!! Can't wait to read about your next adventure.

That Monroe airport is small, I remember when you used to just walk out to the airplane because there is only one gate!!

I really like all the pictures, especially the ones with the whole family!!

What a wonderful wrap-up, Lisa. And all of the pictures are outstanding...I can't even pick a favorite because they are so good.

I once again enjoyed following along with your wonderful family.
