I'll pass on the photos. I do love Lauren's though.

Also, Stingrays are awesome and have cute little faces!



Have signed up with Tracey for Alaska cruise next year and am not even kidding when I say I'm looking into starting off there! Extra adventurers always welcome! E-mail me for the dates! Twist, twist, twist!!!!

So J-bird (don't tell him I called him that! ) and I just got back from our week at the World before what I like to call The Season of Summer Hell starts around here, which lasts until October and is usually about the time I start researching contract killers online, but then we'll take our next trip and I forget about it until the Next Summer From Hell!

Overall it was awesome! We stayed at Beach Club, so I finally got that out of my system. Our room was right on Epcot Resort Drive. I had no idea they moved so many large trucks on that road, but they do, all night long. Awesome! Also they are spraying some strange perfume-y stuff in the lobby *sneeze* It was a nice visit, but I'm thinking my reservations for Beach Club will not be clogging up the system again anytime soon.

We ate waaaay too much, which was fun until my pants stopped fitting and I started wearing previously worn pants because they had already been stretched out. Ewww, or, yeah, everybody does that? We checked out Be Our Guest, and other than John getting sick so John and Kevin couldn't come, and it pouring down rain to the point where we had to buy the ponchos (ripoff) and it being cold, the food itself is awesome! Plus, I fell in love with our waiter, Will, who's very tall and handsome. Who doesn't love a guy with purple knickers on? And he laughed at my jokes, so will love him forever.

There was also an Easter Egg Hunt in Epcot as part of limited time magic. I know some people think the limited time magic is lame-o, but I'm loving what I've done so far. I didn't put it in the layout because sometimes I put things in my layouts and my parents get their feelings hurt and think I'm saying they were bad parents. They weren't bad parents. They were just freaking lazy!!!!

What I would have put in here was this was my first ever Easter Egg Hunt! WWWEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I didn't get an Easter basket until my boyfriend in high school's mom found out I had never had one and made me one up every year until we graduated even after her son and I called it quits!) Since it was my first one Jeri let me find most of the eggs! He's a giver that boy! And I enjoyed it waaay to much.

And here's the layout, sans pathetic parenting story! Please note big cheesy grin!
Disney is genius at giving us happy childhoods in the current moment! Love the Easter layout, and it is super fun to see the different eggs. I didn't quite get what it would be like from the description of the event, glad it was so fun!

I had one of those rooms at the Beach Club, too. Big trucks rumbling by do not say resort vacation.

Terrific news about your Alaska trip! I consider a stop in Seattle mandatory for any of our adventurers coming this way...

I have put Il Mulino on my must eat list. Fun to have a new place to look forward to!

My band played eight shows at Moisture Festival last weekend. It was a whirlwind of aerial acts, juggling, shadow puppets, comedy, music, plate spinning and friends from all over the world. One of my favorite acts was Zipcode Man, who as his name implies knows the cities and neighborhoods for the entire world by zipcode. He asks audience members for their zipcodes and then blows them away by knowing the name of their town. The smaller the town or the more exotic the location the more impressed the audience becomes. He often can also name a neighborhood restaurant in the zipcode. During our late show on Saturday he got a standing ovation. Now that's variety!

What fun! It sounds like a blast. Does Zipcode man study, or does he have an eidetic memory? Either way, what a feat. I would totally be impressed.

I'd love to hear one of your concerts.

Christy: Great link! Some folks are so talented!

Heather: Has Zip code man seen my glasses? I can't find mine because, well, I don't have my glasses. grrrr I have ONE drink last night and broke my routine and now my glasses have done a runner!

Who Fans: Saw the show last night - no spoilers - but thought it was great. Not sold on Clara yet but do love the mystery surrounding her so am willing to wait for some chemistry to grow.

In honor of the most excellent Animal Kingdom segment this week I went ahead and did my Animal Kingdom layout from our trip. We slept in this day so didn't get there early enough for the yeti or the safari, but had a super nice day just walking around and relaxing. Some things of note on the layout: Please note the hippo. This is important because I NEVER see the hippo, like ever. Jeri and I play our game where he keeps pointing out the shadow of the hippo and it all looks the same to me! But this day the hippo is all the way out of the pond! Also note the pretty lady on the left side with me. Her name is Autumn and she is a server at Yak and Yeti. My sister, Autumn (15) thinks NO ONE is EVER named Autumn (hair flip) and this just proves that, yes, someone else is! And she's a really great server so extra tip for her for being (wait for it) AWESOME! Lastly check out the otter on the right side. We caught the otters doing enrichment to get checked out by the trainer and get some treats. It was really fun to watch. Our girl otter would run up on top of a log, stand up on her back legs to show her belly, which was the "trick", but then she would spread her arms and her fingers out to catch her fish so it looked like she was saying TA-DA with jazz hands. Also, they just get fish. No cornbread or banana pudding or anything. Personally, I'm not doing jazz hands for just fish. So in that way it's good I'm not an otter! Or an otter trainer as I would totally be slipping them the "good" stuff!

Enjoy the layout and I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!

I think that he studies, but it is amazing no matter how he does it.

I love your Animal Kingdom pages. I have been a huge fan ever since my very first visit, when I had a whole day of exceptional animal viewings and experiences. I worked at the Cincinnati Zoo when I was a vet student, and am really impressed with AK's care and husbandry as well as the detail and depth of the art design.

I hope the glasses have turned up!

My most favorite thing this week at Moisture Festival was Scott Lands and his marionettes. He was the lead puppeteer for "Team America, World Police" and the Princess Diary movies, and does a totally amazing live show. He builds his own fantastically beautiful marionettes, and was a complete wow. The little puppets had tremendous character and their choreography was perfect.

Heather,

The Moisture Festival sounds like a blast. So many really cool activities. I can see you in the middle of everything.

My head just might return to normal in the next few days. I'm recovering from a particularly nasty upper respiratory infection. My head is still clogged so I'm constantly asking Jack to repeat things.

As I'm pretty well trapped inside hiding from tree pollen I thought I would work on a little scrapbooking. You would think I would be cranking these things out, but my allergy medicine makes me really lethargic. I have literally watched hours of NCIS and Castle in one sitting. I'm not proud of it, but I can't seem to get my butt off the sofa. I figure I maybe have another or week or so and hopefully I'll be freed! Of course, by then it'll already be hot as hell, but what can ya do?

If someone were to point out that I have now scrapbooked a LO that is essentially of a restroom, they would not be wrong! But it's such a pretty restroom! I love this new little area. I wish they would go back and spiff up some of the other resting areas because this one really takes the cake. They even put in a water feature!

Also these are some of my first photos with my new camera, a Sony Nex5N. They are pretty sharp. I'm really happy with the new camera. No more hand going numb from the weight of the DSLR and no more making Jeri carry it around for me! Win/Win Plus, the camera has almost all the functionality of the DSLR, so really it's wonderful. I'm just so pleased with it, and that almost never happens!

Love the photos. Your new camera rocks. I hope your allergies are a thing of the past. I've been knocked out by a upper respiratory infection. It was not fun at all! We're having windows replaced at the house so all is chaos there. Ill be glad when they finish!

The scrapbook sheets are really pretty. I would definitely want to hang out there.

Hey gang! Here we have the new ride Journey Under the Sea (loved it) and the Ariel meet and greet combined. Hope you enjoy it!


In other news: Jeri's job position has been eliminated, which we kind of knew was coming. I thought we had a plan in place wherein Jeri would work for a commercial air company and then slowly grow his own residential business on the side. Today I found out Jeri has decided to forgo the slowly growing his business idea and on May 1st says he is going to officially go out on his own without the benefit of the safety net of the commercial company. I have had three heart attacks so far, but luckily I know how to totally freak out while still smiling and nodding my head. The list of things rolling through my head like a freight train includes but is not limited to life insurance, heath insurance, mortgage payments, and you know, food (cat + people.) Not to mention the moment of pure selfishness when I considered my travel plans. (doesn't he know Kevin said the word Ireland in my hearing?)

I know that sometimes life requires a leap of faith. But off the side of the Grand Canyon? Really?

Given the photos you just posted, I'll just say "darling it's better, down where its wetter, take it from me." So, I hope Jeri's "plunge" is highly successful. I admire someone who is willing to take risks for what he wants to do. I also hope you survive it. . . .
