Welcome Bellebud.

And yes, it takes me forever to find that "welcome" smiley. I swear its location changes when you try to find it.

I bet we'll see a lot more people book this cruise over the summer when people are onboard to take advantage of the onboard discount.

I had a fantastic weekend - took my Girl Scout troop to a dude ranch in New York. We had a great time!!!! DD rode for four hours on Saturday and three hours on Sunday. I don't know how she was able to walk around. And she rode in the advanced class which meant cantering.

I rode for two hours on Saturday and one hour on Sunday. I stayed in the beginner class because my sprained ankle was just too sore to put weight on in the stirrup.

I had 25 people from my troop go. The moms had a great time, too. Boy, we were sore even on the first day. Mostly sore bums!!!

Saturday night while the girls were doing an art/crafts class one of the moms asked if we were going to go riding on Sunday. One mom said she would play it by ear. I said I would play it by "rear".

The food was fantastic and it was soooooo nice to just show up to the dining room and eat. Just like on DCL - just go at the assigned time and get your food. Heavenly.

We lucked out with fantastic weather - sunny/low humidity/comfortable temperatures.

Well, most of my family is getting better, although DH decided to shoot a nail into his hand last night (via a nail gun). I just love the after hours hospital clinic we have in our town. We were in and out w/in an hour, including x-rays, cleaning and paperwork.

Here in Seattle the weather has been crazy. We had several inches of snow over the weekend. It's near the end of April! I think my tulips are confused. :-)

I hope all is well with all of you!

Just got back from the dentist. Marina had a check up and cleaning. Her bottom teeth are coming in behind the baby teeth. She has not lost any teeth.
She had no cavities
Her wonderful brother is calling her "shark". Aren't brothers great?'
He had her convinced she was a freak. Thankfully, she showed her teacher from last year and the teacher told her the same thing had happened to her.

She has an appointment for the orthodontist in 2 weeks. I thought she was a little young. She is only 7.


Matt is awaiting his fate. He has his dentist appt. on Thursday.
He is hoping that he won't need braces. He said it will make him even geekier.
Not only will he be known as the smartest kid in his class, now he'll be the only one with braces.

Hope we are not going to have teeth problems, the last Magic cruise we did was called the "Molar express DISmeet" as we all had teeth problems. I went last week for a filling, still not sure its good, will have to leave it to settle a few more days.

Kim - sorry to hear about your DH's hand....ouch

wayne - thanks for the putting the info on your website.

Speaking of dentists, I have an appt on Thursday for a cleaning. Did I mention that I hate going to the dentist?

Okay, so I finally found the "welcome" sign. I knew about the more on the bottom, but I didn't realize I had to enlarge the box. Oh boy, is their a DUH smiley?

Kim......how awful for DH..... I'm actually afraid to use a nail gun for that very reason.

Snow in April?????? As a skier I can only wish.

Stsomewhere.....I have my own orthodontist story......DS is missing two teeth!!! Yup, never did get all his baby teeth and the adult ones are missing as well. The ones near the canine teeth. The dentist said its not uncommon.

So in the interim I'm supposed to take him to the orthodontist where spacers will be put in and then once he's over the age of 21 then implants.

Wayne....I will check out the website. Thanks for doing that.

Oh.....btw everyone....if your kids watch the Disney channel, there is one of those little segments where the Disney channel TV actors get "interviewed". The current one that takes place at a ski resort is at the Smugglers' Notch resort in VT. That's where we skied at Christmas and President's Day.

Its funny because the first time we saw that segment we all remarked that the ski trails look familiar.

The resort hosts a Disney family fun day once a year.

Wayne -The website looks grreat. Thanks for doing it.

Ski- It sounds like you had a fantastic weekend. I would love to do something like that with Marina's troop. But, some of the girls are afraid of horses. We ride as often as we can. There is a place about an hour away that rents horses. They let you gallop and trot. The kids love it. They encourage you to ride side by side because it is more fun.

I just got the brochure for girl scout day camps and I am thinking about signing Marina up for the horse lovers.

Marina has Brownies tonight. They had 2 weeks off because of school being closed for spring break and then a leaders meeting. The moms are anxious to find out if the mom that still owes cookies money will be there. One mom has left numerous messages.

Matt will be going to Webelos day camp, String camp, and Webelos resident camp.

We had a great weekend. The weather was great. we had some of our neighbors over on Friday night for a bonfire and drinks. The kids had a movie night under the stars. We brought out a TV and they had popcorn and hot cocoa.

Saturday- Erik and Matt had a scout service project. Marina and I went to birthday parties. Then, we had some friends over to play cards. The kids played outside and video games. Matt's friend spent the night.

Sunday- Erik had to work church and we had Erik's family over for a BBQ. Plus all the neighbor kids over. For some reason I ususally end up with a porch full of girls playing barbies.
It's not uncommon to have 11 kids plus mine playing here. They also like to go next door because their trampoline is bigger. But, we are the only family on the block with a monkey bars,pool and a sandbox. The only problem is our dog. She watches for someone to leave the gate open
and takes off.

I hope that everyone is doing well.
