First, I'm that John fell asleep in the theater....or not!

Secondly, I'm glad I have an office all to my self, or I'd have people checking on me from laughing so hard at the pictures of John modelling the backsack, especially the last one!

That Mickey drawn by the CM is fantastic!

I caught up right at the right time.
After the first picture my first thought was Skip wears his like that too. But you are right, Skip didn't wear it quite like that last picture....well he hasn't yet, but he might if I show him the picture of John. He doesn't want to be one up'd.

I'm looking through my Photobucket pictures so that I can write the next installment. In the meantime, here are the two Photopass pictures from our Hollywood Studios day:

Aaawww, what cute pictures...the last set, not the silly ones of John.

Prayers for your family: thankful that the baby seems better, prayers of hope for the mama.

Can't imagine where Hunter got the idea for using the knee-brace as a neck brace. Genetics is a funny thing.

Are you SURE he was resting his eyes? Often times when I'm in similar position I find myself contemplating the existence of the human species within the realm of the greater universe!

My prayers go out your nephew, his wife and baby boy.

I hope all is well with your nephew's family. I'm sure it is really tough for them not knowing what is going on.

On a completely different note- the pictures of John with the backsack are hilarious. I may never look at my backsack the same way again!

I'll be interested in hearing if Jesse ever gets his watch back. I lost a watch at Typhoon Lagoon in 2010- I knew where I lost it (either the wave pool or changing room) and the time within a 30 minute window, but I never got it back. Disney did find a pair of my glasses once and mailed them back to me after my trip.

Love the photopass pictures!

The picture of John brought back memories - in the first trip report of yours that I read John napped his way all around Disney. Not sure if I told you this or not but one of your TRs was the first TR I ever read. Now I am addicted and am usually subscribed to at least 20.... well, at least its an addiction that isn't harmful to my health!

Hey, he was thirsty too.

The rest of us were talking about the day and what was on the agenda for the following day. John? Well he was resting his eyes:



Oh my, someone pick me up off the floor. My husband thinks I've gone totally off my rocker.

Big shocker! I know!

Ummmm...not really.


After twenty minutes or so, enough people were out of the stadium that we decided to head on out. Because we knew that the bus lines would probably be long, we made a pit stop at the bathroom first. John was in charge of watching the backsack while the women went in. When I came out, he was wearing it like this:



which made me laugh because Jen’s husband, Skip, wore their backsack all sorts of ways while on their vacation at Universal and Disney. I told John what I was laughing about and he decided to see just how many ways he could wear the backsack.





This one is super blurry because I was laughing so hard. That’s a backsack not a jock strap!



Jen, I think that John has a leg up on Skip on a “different” way to sport a backsack.

We laughed so hard that we actually had people looking at us. Wait, they probably weren’t looking at us because we were laughing, they were probably looking because John had a backsack on his “hoo haa”.


Stop it...you're killing me here (and I can't show Mark because I'm afraid he'll scroll down and see my ticker; I can only tell him and telling doesn't do it he justice seeing does.

A castmember was “drawing” Mickey on the pathway which we thought was neat. I asked him how many characters he could draw and he said most of the main characters but Mickey and Goofy were his favorites.



I love how they do that.


**Up next: Awww! It’s a baby! Not another butt shot!
Sorry they didn't find Jessie's watch. Can't wait to see what happens next with the "butt shot".

I guess John's not going to be in charge of the backsack anymore huh?

I love the way he can fall asleep anywhere-and does!

Fun update, which I know would be even better if I could see the pictures.

Prayers for your nephews baby. I hope all is well and its nothing serious.

I'll be back to see John versus the backpack!

Hey, maybe that's something you can add to your "reasons to get Skip back to Walt Disney World" list.

Thanks so much for the prayers!

Genetics IS a funny thing! Actually, it could be a scary thing as well when you think about it.

It really was a good day and the backpack wearing methods made it even better.
