Wow! I just logged back in for the first time in over 2 months - I can't believe this thread is still going strong! That's SO cool!!!

I'm working at planning another trip this fall, but I can only pressure my best bud so much, since it IS money. I'm so jealous that Meghan is on her way back (or nearly!), as I've been following on facebook!!!

Anyone want to go with me Sept 18-21?!

Hey! Welcome back! I would love to go in Sept!! or any other time!

I remember you were down for the marathon - can you tell me anything about the crowds at the parks then? Someone in my office is thinking about doing the marathon or half and wondered about it. TIA.

It was busier in 2009 than it was in 2005. It was, in fact, overrun with non-US tour groups. Generally waits were in the half hour range, with the occasional screw up on rides like Mission: Space. It's nothing like it is during the "busy" times of year, but the whole place was MUCH MUCH busier than even my 2007 trip during the cheerleading competition!!

Still, we never felt particularly rushed, though that might be because DH was post marathon. The weather this past year was COLD, whereas 2005 was in the 80s! This time, we were at the tail end of the Christmas decor, which was fun to see.

Sadly, the half for 2010 is already sold out... I was starting to work on convincing the husband to run it when I discovered that. Rats!!!

I have one weekend in August and one in September free for the potential remainder of this year (ugh not fun reasons, either), so I think September is a better time to make a trip. And i MUST go. Plus, the husband doesn't want to, so I need someone to go with me. (I can't decide when to give up pushing my friend and just book it and find someone later!!) But I WANNA GO!!!

I can't wait to surprise him with this trip. And this time I'm getting that boy in the show if it kills me! Maybe he can wear his lucky drawers and get picked.
Oh,that is too cute! Our DS used to do that too, only they weren't Star Wars!!

HAVE FUN!!!! I'm so jealous!!

It's "Snowbirds" cleverly enough. I think this URL should work?! http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/gr...d=106981880360

How is everyone today? I got some great news today!! My little sister's BFF got the results back from her test, and she does not have pre-eclampsia!! I was so excited when I got the news. When I had my oldest son I had pre-eclampsia and had to have him at 32 weeks by emergency c-section.

that's awesome for your pregnant friend!!! I am happy for her!!
My son is on his way home today from church camp. He had a great time...I am glad because we left our old church recently and have only been visiting this church for a short while. He didn't know any of the kids extremely well, but he hit if off with a couple of the boys, so I was wondering how he would do. But, being a people lover like his daddy, I figured he would be okay!!!

Man ya'll, it is soooooo bloomin' hot down here. We are breaking records with the heat/heat index. like 107 and it ain't even July yet!!!! I am roasting. I think I am gonna go ahead and fill out passport papers...see if I can convince Mike that we HAVE to go to Canada when it gets August!!!! WOW!! You northern people have my envy right now. I know ya'll get 'warm' but man... You would think I am acclimated to it---i've been here all my life... but geesh! I am not coping very well. Already had one day this week in the bed with a headache just from the heat! The kids are even draggy. Okay, well, that's my whine for the week!!! Hope you all have an awesome weekend---pray for us to get some rain!! We have been a pretty good while without any--our yards are pretty much burnt up! I could water it...but I hate to spend that kinda $$$on grass that always comes back!

We had a heat index near 100 yesterday, so we get it occasionally here in Michigan!! I haaaaate it. Hee!

The heat broke with some amazing storms last night and I'm pretty grateful, especially since I had knee surgery this morning. It's nicer to recover without that kind of heat!!

Aw, thanks!!! I hadn't mentioned it all (since I reappeared after a two month absense, I didn't think I should unload all my health woes, in the "hi i'm back guess what" and then complain). It was a minor surgery so I should be back on my feet by Monday.

We don't get that kind of heat that consistently here and I'm grateful! And we only get it for a few days maybe all summer long. Personally, I just sit on AC vent with a fan blowing on me and I get through it. Yes, the electricity bill ought to be phenomenal!!

(I wish I could blame any typos that I missed on pain meds, but, alas, all I've taken is Tylenol!)
