Guilty!!

I enjoyed reading your last TR. Your pictures of Boston made me homesick. Looking forward to reading about your next adventure at WDW.

Well, look at the bright side.....at least you 11 days and not TWO days like me! I sure hope they are out by Friday!

I am adding a day at Discovery Cove and you get a ticket for Seaworld too for the next day I think. I need to know what my ADR's are going to be to schedule those. We do get the hopper option because my son is Autistic and you just never know what the day is going to be like but that doesn't mean I want to spend my trip criss crossing WDW to get my ADR's.

My world just isn't right until I have a plan! And I usually plan A, B and C just in case with the kiddo

I sure hope I can get an early Crytal Palace Breakfast and Boma for Dinner on our day of arrival (our 10th Anniversary)

I know, you must be going crazy!!!! I hope they come out tomorrow for you so you can map things out!!!

I hear you needing to map out a plan, especially with kids!!! I hope you get what you're looking for and congrats on the 10 year anniversary!!!! That's wonderful!!!!!

As far as something to send via email...maybe a countdown type of thing, like "45 days from today, we'll be...." or some Disney Trivia. Or maybe recalling an old Disney memory, with a pic would be even more fun!

Just some random thoughts...
Thanks for the ideas Brook....still got my thinking cap on....if I start too early, it may end up torturous for my family....so we'll see. They don't quite understand why I need the hours to plan for us...heehee!! I need to get one of those Disney Trivia day to day calendars....hmm...maybe a trip to the book store may be in order!!

Yes, Yes I am (to quote Phineas from Phineas & Ferb).

We will be meeting my brother's family and my best friend & her family there. Now that our kids are in school, this has become a yearly summer tradition. We all own DVC and at the same resort, so this is how we spend our summer vacations. I am not able to make it back to MA this summer, but at least I can see some of the family & friends.

Hi Everyone!
Still waiting on those EMH's...they are killing me!!

On other notes, just thought I would share with you guys, Lucas finished preschool last week for the year and will do another year 3 days a week come September, Ethan will be done on 6/18 and is heading towards 1st grade, so we're gearing up for Summer here. My "Baby" Cole, will be 2 later this month. I can't believe it and do not know where time goes. We're planning just a family party on his actual birthday (6/27) and the weekend before we're taking him (and his brothers, of course!) to "Day out with Thomas" locally at Edaville Railroad. I'm really looking forward to it and think Cole will have SO much fun. We watch Thomas daily (yes, even though it's not Disney...lol!!) and he loves to dance to the music, so we'll have a lot of fun there. Hope you don't mind me sharing some of the pics in a couple of weeks!

We are also getting ready for a vacation with Todd's family on the NJ Shore, Sea Isle City, for those familiar with that area. We'll go the niight of Cole's birthday and stay in NY overnight (about 4 hours from home) and then the next morning we'll head to the shore (another 3-4 hours). We'll be staying at a house on the beach/little board walk with my inlaws, my two brother in laws, sister in laws and my 2 nephews who are 5 & 3. We did it last year and it was fun with all the kids.....we have all been having the boys every year so they are now 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6....so we pray it doesn't rain or we'll all go crazy!!!

That's all new on this end really...hope you're all well!!! And hope to have some plans posted someday soon...hint, hint Disney!!

I don't think Joe quite gets the planning thing either, until he told me the other night he secretly priced out a trip and the rooms were just too expensive, so he ditched that plan. I came back with a code from MouseSavers that I found in about 14 seconds, along with other tips, etc. I *think* he's starting to understand...

I like your idea about a book store trip for the calendar!

Oooooh wow. That's going to be BUSY! But so fun!

Henry would love Thomas-he really likes trains in typical little boy fashion. He puts his arm up and says "Ch" when he sees his Thomas toothpaste. What station is it on? That truly sounds like a perfect "party" for a 2 year old!!

I can't believe Henry is 21 months now. Ugh. I know exactly how you feel!!!!
