Oh My Goodnes Gracious!!!! My biggest fear is snakes! When I read your post and saw your pictures, I almost squealed out loud at work! As I scrolled past each picture, I had to purposefully contain myself! My eyes are still twice their usual size as I type this! Yikes!

I'm with them! And apparently very few others.

We have done the reptile birthday parties too- snakes, bugs, gators, etc.

Snakes are pretty cool. Rats, on the other hand, I can live without. But snakes eat rats. So there you go!

But I can certainly appreciate the strong emotions and dislike and fear people have of snakes. No judging from me!


Lisa. SNAKE!!!

I loved your jumping pictures! My kids would be too embarrassed for us to get any. Well, too embarrassed of me jumping for pictures, anyway - I'm sure they could jump and it would be fine!

I can't believe there was a snake in Mouse Gears - I'd have never thought to be on the lookout for them - I wonder how often it happens. Probably don't want to know - .

Morning! Sorry I haven't posted replies in a day or two. I've been busy helping some family members book trips to Disney. It now looks like Mickeystoontown's family is going to overtake Walt Disney World in May, 2013! Three of my cousins and their families are going and, just yesterday, I helped my sis-in-law book their trip. For those of you traveling to Disney the last week of May, ya'll better watch out!

My boss called me last night and said that thinks that he may stay at home today and celebrate Fat Tuesday while I slave away with a tape of dictation and billing. That's perfectly fine with me because it's way easier to get things done when he's gone. I haven't heard from him to know if he made a decision but I hope he stays away.

I looked and couldn't find where it went, I don't think I hit it because there was no... evidence, shall we say? on the shoe or wall. I screamed and my dad and brother came rushing in and they looked all over, under the bed, etc and couldn't find it wither. Well I wasn't about to sleep in that room that night!! I slept on a mattress on the floor in my parents room for about 3 or 4 days before I could be convinced it was gone.

The jumping pics look like fun! I don't think I could get my DH to do that, unfortunately. Of course I would be the one to fall in the flower bed, though.
I'm sorry but you had me laughing at your story! That sounds just like something that Lacey and my niece, Ashly, would have done. They are both terrified of bugs.

I'm surprised that I didn't fall in the flower bed. I'm usually the one who has no grace whatsoever.

I don't know what I'd have done if I'd seen that snake while I shopped! It sure didn't look like it was a harmless one. Not that I'd ever know the difference. I'd probably have jumped onto the tables.
We saw them when we were walking around CSR crossing the sidewalks, so I know they are there, but sort of different when they are outside.
Convinced me I NEVER want a ground floor room ever again!
Can't wait to read more!
Jumping pictures are hard to get just right and this time, we definitely didn't hit the nail on the head.

The snake didn't look like a harmless one to me either but, then again, a little two inch snake would look scary to me.

Jumping photos are hard to get just right! Usually it looks pretty darn awkward. I did get a good one of Kadence at DTD!
We laugh and say that John doesn't have a butt, just skin and bones. Poor thing doesn't have any padding back there.

I have to admit - Hunter has one heck of a jump!
Yes m'am, he really did. He stumbled all the way over to the flower bed and sat right smack down in it. It was absolutely hilarious!

Welcome! Welcome! I'm so glad to have you here and hope that you'll continue to post.

We really do have a lot of joy and love in our lives! We have been blessed!

He sure did! There was a sticker caught in his shorts and it was sticking his booty!

Poor John's jump. Ow! Jesse needs some training. Hunter nailed it though!
I never imagined that I would see a snake inside Mouse Gears. It really creeped me out.

Jesse needs to start his training right now if he's going to get a good jumping picture in May.

Sorry to scare you like I did. Well, like the snake did! Can you believe that it was right there in Mouse Gears?!?

I'm definitely not a snake girl!

We have done the reptile birthday parties too- snakes, bugs, gators, etc.

Lacey once had a Survivor party and the guests had to dig through worms and crickets to get to prizes. It was fun!

I have no problem with rats but snakes

No fair! That scared me!

John really did hit his rear end and it was so funny!

Heaven help your kids if they were members of our family! They were be severely traumatized by the things that we do.

Nope, I don't want to know how many times the reptiles make their way into the buildings either. Noooooooo m'am! I'd rather be kept in the dark on that one.

Aruba, Jamaica, oooh I wanna take ya!

Aruba, Jamaica, oooh I wanna take ya!

Well, it was here, our last day at Walt Disney World. Oh how I hate the last day! I was determined that it was going to be an absolutely wonderful fantastic beautimus day. I popped my head out the door and it was, indeed a pretty day. While the others were finishing up their morning routine, I stepped outside to take a few pictures. This was our view:



Our room and building numbers:





There was a banana tree right beside our building:



A few pictures of our surroundings in the village of Aruba:













The rest of the gang came of the rooms out about then and I ran up to grab my purse. We strolled over to the Jamaica bus stop and were greeted with a Magic Kingdom bus in no time.

**Up next: Jesse and Hunter share a Titanic moment! I’m Flying Hunter!

Sorry for the short update. Had someone just call and ask for copies of something from their file so I need to get to work on it. I'll be back to post more...just not sure if it will be this afternoon or tomorrow.

Yay! An update! You may have convinced me to try Caribbean Beach. I never wanted to because it is so spread out, but it looks absolutely beautiful.
