Shame about the treehouse, maybe for your next trip? They do look like fun.......but oooooooo, Beaches &Cream. I've never been (outside of the Contemporary for Chef Mickey's and the Poly for 'Ohana, I've never been to any of the WDW hotels) but MAN does it sound good! It's certainly on my list!!
Ah..BB's lightbulb moment. I didn't realize that FD had been announced for the BB's. VERY encouraging!!

I'm the same way. My typing is rapid, and my DH totally makes fun of me. Actually, I feel quite a comraderie with you. My convoluted point is that I enjoy what you write, and want to take time to savor it. I've just been so busy with my upcoming trip, I hadn't had "savoring" time. This monring, I seized it while DS was otherwise occupied with a Magic School Bus DVD. We get them from the library, he just loves them. Anyway...who's running on now?
Awww....I feel exactly the same!

Well, except me when I got kicked by DS. But I'm a kicker, too, so it's all good. I shudder to think of us cramming into the small beds at Pop on this trip. It's a good thing he's a snuggler!

And yes, you are expanding my offerings! I love it!
I am not a kicker but the 3 younger kids are wrigglers and floppers. Nightmare! Kendall was horrid to sleep with, kept snuggling and flopping her arm over me and the bed was too small to go anwhere! She was dead weight man! T may be a bit big for that sofa/day bed but I figure it beats sharing a bed with Doug.

Ugh. Normally I am all about unity, learning to share.

But not while I'm trying to sleep, people.

Yippee for the YC!! I do believe you'll love it there, and the amenities at both YC and BC are the same, so you'll get all of the benefits that they both have to offer. BC is closer to the International Gateway into Epcot, but YC is closer to the boat launch and DHS. And of course, there's the wonderful SAB. Please have a No Way Jose for me at Beaches n Cream. We never made it in.

Sure!

If TK can have a Yak Attack for me, I can have a No Way Jose for you.

What exactly is it I am agreeing to? Do I eat it? Or drink it?

You eat it! Its a chocolate and peanut butter sundae, so I'm hoping there aren't any peanut allergies! I'm sure a kid or two would help you eat it if you asked.

Npe! Not a one. Probably not what I'd pick although I'll enjoy it just fine. However I can think of 3 people that might order it on their own accord so I'll keep you posted.

Then again I can just see them wanting to get the kitchen sink. YIKES!

Do you know if the counter service is available to use as DDP snack credits?

YUM!

Indeed! The bounceback dates are 8/15/10-9/30/10 (it feels so weird to write dates that don't start with zero!!)

If you combine this information with what you mentioned about it being offered for 2010 for the UK, I'd say our chances have just jumped to VERY good!!

All this talk of Free Dining is making me hungry.........and oh look! It's dinner time! How convenient!!

Happy last day of summer!

Fall starts tomorrow although you wouldn't know it by the temperatures here. In the spirit of that, and the fact that somehow Jeff has figured out a way to have the Disney trip speed up his BFP of a seaplane, I thought I'd share some of our pictures from our last summer "hurrah"...flying to Roche Harbour, on San Juan Island which is in the San Juan Islands.

This was also one of those moments that inspired this PTR. I'd found out that morning that something I was interviewing for, that I DIDN'T REALLY WANT, AT ALL, I didn't get. And I obsessed about it a bit, let it bring me down. Dwelled.

Is dwelled a real word? Boy does that sound like poor grammar. Dwelt implies I actually lived there. Like she dwelt in the forest. Hmmn. Really need a better word here.

Talk about off tangent!

Jeff pulling the plane out of it's "parking spot, almost ready to go!



Yes, the plane really IS small. The one he is building will be a similar size, though very very different.


Mt. Baker




Destination, San Juan Islands!



The ferry that runs through the islands and up to Victoria BC. This is for you PracPerfPatricia!

The main town. I have been here several times, and even flew in once though Jeff wasn't the pilot. Never to the other side of the island.


Destination in sight


And another of Mt. Baker. I got really carried away, it was pretty ridiculous.


The airstrip


parking the plane


This was actually hysterical to me. You park the plane on the grass, walk over to a pay box and deposit your parking fee in a little envelope, just like you would for a car. As we are paying an older couple and their little yippy lap dog was walking towards us. A small amount of plane chat happened and they gave us directions as to where to go eat, what the 3 options were since we didn't have a clue having never been there before. It is a short walk but not terribly obvious. Of course they HAD to drop the fact that they "kept" their boat there. According to Jeff they had a rather nice plane (heck they are all nice to me, I don't have a clue but suffice to say that theirs wasn't a kit like ours will be) so he found it unnecessarily pretentious and I"m like Dude...you flew in, for lunch, in a small plane. Clearly they think we are one of them.



It was pretty funny.

The chapel.
I would love it if my little sis would have her wedding here but it's out of the budget.


Ok it's not a deluxe resort, but isn't it cute?


The marina, where we will land the seaplane someday. That adorable church is the back


This is the three sisters (I think!), the hike pictures from the beginning of my PTR is from near here


If you squint really hard you can see Mt Ranier. This is for you Sandy321
It was a bit hazy. It was actually INCREDIBLE this morning at sunrise, I can see it from my bedroom window. But too far away for any decent pictures.


Next It's 11 months away. What do you mean the rooms are gone?

Oh that is great info if I need to move my dates at all! Whoo hooo! From your mouth to the mouse's ears.

I'm hungry too!

Be still my heart. I think we have a perfect first day in the making. With the room change and SAB I can't see getting the gang to a park on day 1. It'll be an option but...I'm ok with it.

Lunch at Hurricane Hannahs....Beaches and Cream Ice Cream cones for snack.

Ahhhh A perfect afternoon.

um DONT DO IT!! You only have a choice of 4 flavors at B&C walk up - instead do me the honor of going into Beach Club, into the market place and ask for a taste of their GELATO!! This stuff is INSANE it is so good!! YOU have to believe me! and you have at least 8 - 12 flavors (I forget, I know its a lot) some are sherbet flavors, some are like butter pecan, creme brulee, OMG - it is so GOOD - and the LARGE is a Dining Plan Snack Credit!

I wondered where Mt Ranier was!!

what a gorgeous getaway!

Ok, just so I am clear. The gelato is at the marketplace, not at B&C?

Can't I have BOTH?



I am slightly concerned though that your husband climbed a mountain and you don't know where it is.

LOVE the shots of my home stomping grounds. My hubby is a hobby mountaineer, and has climbed most of those peaks. The only one he hasn't "conquered" is the sisters because his climbing partners were ill-equipped dopeheads. Ah well.

Loving the pictures!!! FFIL used to fly planes. He sold his a few years ago when he just couldn't afford the maintenance cost anymore.
