Well it sounds like you made the best of the rain situation. Cute dresses. We had similar ones that will pop up in my TR.

Thank you! Yes, they did pretty well. A few meltdowns here and there (especially Claire). But Claire was able to sleep in the stroller and Ally just goes and goes. Ally cut out naps awhile ago.

Great update! I love the Tink dresses and am amazed at how well your daughters did all day in the park.
Thank you Soleil! They are great! I was also anti-leash before I had kids but I would NEVER make a comment in front of anyone--you know?! We found the Minnie harness at http://www.securebaby.com/sb53906-9.html.

It did work very well. It was easy to push around and carried everything we needed around the park. I bought these Mommy Hooks from Babies 'R Us that I clipped to the stroller and was able to carry even more! The only negative was that 3 nights during our trip Ally was falling asleep in the stroller and she couldn't lay back and sleep comfortably. Brent ended up having to carry her which was difficult b/c she weighes around 50 lbs!

Great job so far! And MK and CRT.....sigh.....be still my heart!
Hi Katie!! Thanks! We really did like H&V. There was a big selection of food! It did not disappoint!

But hey you know you are coming back!

Love all the pictures, I havn't seen the B& B show in a long time, so that a sweet treat for me.

The girls look great in their tink dresses. Glad the HSM stars did a meet and greet...they didn't on our trip, when the show was canceled due to rain

How fun to be the "family of the show" at PHDL...and I've never seen the girl performer.

looking forward to more.
Exactly!! We'll be coming back for sure! I kept telling Brent throughout our trip that "Next time we'll have to do ________". I have a list!! Thank you! Yes, Ally was excited to get to meet the HSM cast! It was nice that they did SOMETHING for the kids that were there to see the show.

Aww! Thanks! I'm so glad your kids are enjoying the pictures!! I got the Minnie Mouse harness here: http://www.securebaby.com/sb53906-9.html. Exactly!! I would much rather have my daughter SAFE!

How lucky that ya'll were family of the show!!!
Thank you! Yeah--it stinks when you end up waiting that long and don't even get to see the show! Oh well--next time!

I'm glad you liked H & V! I've heard some bad reviews on the place.
Thank you! Ally was ALL about meeting the characters on this trip! She almost filled up TWO autograph books!!

Obviously he has no kids and he has no business making a rude comment either. If I had a little one that would take I would certainly use a harness to keep them safe. So that the CM at Playhouse Disney pick you and your friends to be family of the show. Sorry you missed fantasmic, honestly of all the nightime shows it's my least favorite. But hopefully next time you can see it .
Thanks Nichole! Glad Thomas liked the Jedi pics! Yeah--that guy obviously didn't know what he was saying! Yes--Fantasmic is definitely on our list for next time!!

And phooey on the guy who made the comment about the leash. Heck, phooey on anyone who makes a comment like that. It's your decision and not theirs. Personally, I think they're a lifesaver when the little one wants to get out of the stroller or out of mom and dad's arms to be independant and walk or run around for a bit.
Yes, we did have a great trip despite the rain! Exactly--my kid and my peace of mind for her safety!! Yes, and Claire is definitely my independent one! She wants to do everything her older sister does!!

I just have to say I LOVE Ally's shades! Totally GLAM!!!!

How cool to be the special family for the PD show. My kids are too old for PD so we have never seen that one. Looks cute!

Can't wait to see and hear more!
Hee hee!! Yes, I'm moving fairly quickly--sorry Missy!! Oooh--how was the conference?! Sandi Patty went to college in Anderson, IN (originally from Oklahoma) and then Bill Gaither discovered her and she started singing/touring with The Gaithers. Yes, one of my readers is from Anderson!

Just wanted to chime in on the safety harness. After reading your PTR, I discussed it with my husband and we are getting a Minnie one for our daughter. I just don't think people get it until they have children. Emmie is just so darn fast and independent it just makes sense not to take the risk of her taking off or tripping someone when she takes off. Thanks for posting the link for them. Love the Tink dresses!

Count me in as another harness-loving mama! Anyone who would make a comment like that clearly does not have kids. What a jerk! Until you've had a toddler you have no idea how fast and reckless they are. I turned my attention at my ODS's t-ball game yesterday for 20 seconds and my YDS was halfway down the field being carried back by a stranger. It happens in an instant, and you do what you have to to feel safe. I want to get a Mickey one, but I worried it would be too hot in September. What did you think?

Great updates, Becky! I haven't been on all weekend so it was cool to see so many updates right in a row! (Unlike someone I know who takes FOREVER to update hers....).

The pictures are all so fabulous! I love the BatB ones and the JTA ones, but the ones with your girls in them are the best!! So, no Toy Story Mania for you guys? It's my all-time favorite!!! Sorry Fantasmic got rained out and that you guys had to deal with Mr. Rude Pants! I just don't understand how some people can't just keep their mouths shut! I mean, what purpose was it serving for him to say that? Ugh.

I love those dresses - they are so cute! And the picture of Claire sleeping - adorable!!

Can't wait for more!

Sara

hey girlie!
Glad your TR is off to a great start! We just got in late late late last night. Sooo tired. But we had a wonderful time too. I'm in photopass limbo right now and that will be all consuming for a bit. We also are a week away from VBS and I have too much to do. I'll start a TR soon. Can't wait to hear more!!

How many coins can a 5-gallon jug hold?
Luckily, Fantasyland was nowhere to be seen!
Will ride Mission: Space only to drool over Gary Sinise (he acts wooden in the video, though)

Oh good!! I'm glad the link helped you out! And the Minnie one is just too cute!! Claire is the same way--fast and independent!

Glad to hear it!! It worked really well for Claire and she LOVED wearing it (I think the fact that it was Minnie really helped). I don't think it would be too hot--Claire wore it in mid-May with no problem. And it's not like he'll be wearing it all day--you know?! And if he loves Mickey Mouse, it's even better!! (and oh so cute!)

Thanks Sara!! Hee hee!! I know, I keep checking your TR for updates. You're just wanting to drag things out as much as you can--I don't blame you!! I don't ever want to forget our trip!!

No, we didn't get to Toy Story Mania. By the time we made our way over there, the line was CRAZY long! And later they weren't letting anyone without Fastpasses ride b/c they have given all of the FP's out! Crazy!!
