Good Afternoon, is everyone having an enjoyable day.

Cait and Mel enjoy VT. I wish I could have joined you, maybe next time.

Sha, of course I'll be there in December with my dad, son and sisters. Have to celebrate Dad's 80th in a MAGICAL way.

Good Morning from soggy VT~

Happy Sunday!!!

Mel and I ventured out yesterday, and where did we find ourselves you ask. Well let me tell you, we found just a wee bit of heaven right here in VT. Yup you guessed it, Ben and Jerry's. We went on the factory tour and at the end we were rewarded with a tasting of Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream (made my honey a little jealous...his favorite ice cream)

We may have also paid a visit to their scoop shop as well. A tasting was not quite enough for us. Let me tell ya, if you are a fan of peanut butter cups. The Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Ice cream tastes EXACTLY like a frozen peanut butter cup.

After breakfast today we are venturning out again and heading to Burlington...for my favorite passtime....SHOPPING!!!!

Have a great Sunday.

Good afternoon everyone... I had the most awesome experience last night. My son and I went to see Trans Siberian Orchestra at the Richmond Colesium. If you live any where near were they are going to perform DONT MISS IT. This is by far the best arena rock show I have ever seen. The show would have been great even if they did nothing but perform thier music. But they mixed in a phenomenal show of lights, lasers and pyrotechnics that was just jaw dropping. 2 1/2 hours of music, lights, lasers and fireworks!!! Dont miss it if you have the opportunity to go. The band even came out afterward and sighed autographs after the show.

The Trans Siberian Orchestra are awesome, I know Matt and you had a fun. They will be performing in Washington DC at the Verizon Center in December but unfortunately I'll be in Disney on those days. Hopefully they will be back in 2009.

OK guys, thanks for dangling three carrots in front of me - Ben and Jerrys factory tour, peanut butter cup (why don't you guys detour through Hershey on the way home??) and factory outlet, or small town shopping!!!

Hope you enjoyed yourselves

Hey girls...I am from VT, But I was away this weekend with some friends. I wish I would have known you were around.
I am glad you had fun at Ben and Jerry's, and I am sure you had fun in Burlington on Church street- especially if you stayed there late at night for liquid refreshment...Burlington is known for the wide array of bars.

Good Morning from Snowy Vermont.

Mel's hopes for a walk up the mountian, past where the road is closed to cars were dashed when we woke up to snow. It is Vermont after all. We ventured out yesterday to go to Burlington, did a little shopping. Headed back to the Resort, and just hung out lastnight watching a movie with the fireplace going....and woke up this morning to SNOW!!

Not sure what our plans are for today, possibly just watching the snow, while wishing we are at Disney!

Hey....to bad you were away this weekend. We had fun on Church St, and walked down to the lake to take some pics. Is it snowing where you are?

Hey STEVE!!....Did you send this snow to us? As punishment for tempting you with Ben and Jerry's.

I've not even been back two months and already I'm ready for the World again. I wish I were getting ready to go back again, I had so much fun.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

I'm getting ready to go in about a month and I can tell you that I will want to go back the very minute I set foot back in PA. Ugh.

Animation Inn & Suites?

Ok, so I'm now reading about a possible re-branding of Pop Century into something called Animation Inn & Suites and possibly taking it to a moderate level resort as well? They say occupancy levels have never been very high at Pop, but every single time I've been there its been just as crowded as any of the All Stars, so that doesn't make any sense to me.

Now we all know of their decision to eventually finish Early Years as all-suites. This is one of my favorite resorts at the World and I'm rather at odds with the fact that they might even THINK of changing it to something different. Honestly, if they took it to a moderate, I would stay at Riverside instead, as its the best moderate in my opinion.

Just some food for a Monday morning, enjoy your reading...

Have a look at the article here

Hmmm, read the article. Very interesting.
I have stayed at Pop and loved it, but something new would be great too.
