Cool

Just back from a quick day at Blizzard Beach. I coach my daugher's AAU team here in Michigan and we qualified and attended Nationals in Ft. Myers. Got eliminated on Monday and spend 2 nights at AKL. Not too bad.

Reminded me of: "Hey, you just lost at AAU Nationals!!! What are you gonna do!?!?!.........I'm going to DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!"

Anyway, just planned our next trip, Feb. 6 - 11 at Boardwalk villas, and then off to the Wonder for a 3 night cruise.

Gotta love DVC!!!!

Thanks for the new thread link. I don't post here much, but do look in to read up from time to time. One more month and I'll be packing for my (our) third WDW trip this year.

I finally found the new thread. I have not been around for awhile but for good reasons. This has been a REALLY busy three months. Started out at the end of April with a trip to Disney for my 39th Birthday. What a great trip. I had planned on doing a full trip report and just did not have the time. I did get to meet a fellow Dis Dad (Emma's Dad) which was really cool. After Disney, I spent the next month getting caught up with work since I was off for a week to go to Disney. Baseball games and flag football games for the 9 year old have been have been keeping me busy as well.


Last year my MIL decided to organize a family reunion trip in June to Bermuda. We had already had our trip to Disney planned and half the trip payed for when we found out. Thankfully, she paid for the trip.

That was quite the experience. It statred out with the day before the trip. I spent all day Saturday June 20th either packing or helping set ujp and tear down our community art festival. I finally got home saturday night around 8 and began the final packing. My wife ran out to pick up some more stuff. The kids were asleep and all of a sudden CRASH from upstairs. I ran up to find my oldest son screaming. Here the ceiling in his room collapsed! Thank God it did not fall on him. What a great start to the trip.

We left out of New York on a Sunday, got to Bermuda on Wednesday and left Bermuda on Friday to come back to New York on the following Sunday. We saw the sun for a total of 1.5 days. We had steady rains, 30-40 mph winds and 12-18 foot seas. It started feeling like the Deadliest Catch. We did get to witness a 3 am middle of the ocean rescue of a small sail boat. We were the closest boat (or is it a ship? I was in the Army so I am not sure) in the area and rescued the poor guy. Ended up he lost his engines in 12 foot seas. My oldest son and youngest son were on and off with being sea sick the whole trip. My wife....well she was sick most of the cruise. Not sea sick.....morning sick!

Turns out right before we left for the cruise we found out that she is pregnant. It must have been the Disney Magic. I will be getting a brand new shiney baby for my 40th birthday.

Like I said it has been busy. Welcome to the CLub to all the new Dads out there. All Dads getting ready to go have a great time and have a Dole Whip for me!
This needs to be turned into a movie script!

Only 20 more to be double digits... sweet!

I'm glad you guys came by to check out the new thread. I was able to send PMs to all the dads except a handful that do not accept PMs. It takes a while to do it since you can only PM 5 people at a time! Hopefully we will see some more dad's that haven't been by in a while. But I am getting worried about Fanatic... anyone hear from him yet??

Great to see we have another thread up!

Me and the family are heading back to Disney next month to celebrate my DS's 5th B-day at the Beach Club.

Any DIS Dads going to be at WDW the week of August 22-29?

LOL, yeah. Actually, we were going to do an end of summer trip to the beach or something, but with free dining, and POP, it's actually going to cost us less to do Disney again than to go to the shore, LOL. Gotta LOVE free food!

I only wish I was going. Our 16 year anniversary is the 21st... wonder if I can use that as an excuse to go?!?

Wife and I are celebrating our 20th anniversary, our daughters 7th birthday, and our son's 1st, LOL. Those are my REAL excuses for going twice this year.

Hehe, thanks on the age thing....married VERY young.

We actually haven't told our daughter about the trip yet. We came back in June, and told her we would probably not be going again until her little brother turned 4.

SO, her birthday is July 30th. My wife wrapped a pair of mouse ears, a luggage tag, and a picture I made of her at Disney with a custom message saying we were going back again, put it in a box and wrapped it. I can't WAIT to see her face when she opens it!
