That tornado map freaks me out. Those are one thing I am absolutely terrified of - I can handle snow and storms but tornadoes?

I love your themed get-togethers. And, as always, your pictures from Pop and the parks are making me so excited to be back there!

I love your very own Whispering Canyon Cafe! I look forward to doing fun Disney things at home when I have kiddies of my own.

And while we're talking parades, they need to bring back Stars and Motorcars!!!
ME TOO! Now if it would just hurry up already and be reality. I have heard that rumor steady though - 2013 should bring it back. March-ish I do believe (along with the new daytime parade).

I never got to see Stars & Motorcars! It was running during our trips, but we never saw it. I really wish we would have. DHS needs a new one too.

That porcupine is so cute! Like a raccoon or koala, the cutest ones are the scary ones!

Your WCC party looks like a lot of fun, as always. Delicious eats! Too bad you couldn't just let a Cast Member take your plates away and wash them for you!

So excited to hear that Stars and Motorcars could be coming back!!!! That was such an awesome parade. We have SO MANY pictures from that parade. Our favorite memory was when DD10 (who was DD4 at that time) got freaked out when Darth Vader walked up to her during the parade...she ran and hid behind me!

I always enjoy looking at your themed dinner pictures. Makes me super hungry!
All three of my 'old' young girls - you, Dawn, and Erica - are busy, busy, busy these days and don't get to DIS nearly as much as you used to before this last 'crop of babies. I understand.

I think we'll be trying Be Our Guest as a lunch venue only for now. I'm anxious to see your trip pictures.

I looked for stick horses, but at $15 to $30, I decided a craft would be much better. We had fun with it. Brandon's girlfriend, Heather, took it very seriously. It was fun to watch them working and be little kids again. The one you see in the can, Happy, he was mine.

That Whispering Canyon food looks yummy! Makes me tomato and pasta soup I brought for lunch seem not-so appealing!

Not a bit offended. I know how kids are. I wish I could have gotten the kitty to come out and see him.

Makes sense since we are the lightening capital of Canada! It looks like a pretty cool museum though!

What a fun family dinner at the Tennesse branch of the Whispering Canyon! I swear, your get-togethers always have the most fun themes! The horse crafts for the kids are so awesome!
It's a nice museum. They have added a lot to it since the last time I was there. I want to take the girls sometime.

No tornadoes for DIStown. We need to redirect them toward the plains where there are no houses.

Tornadoes casue so much damage in such a short time. They are scary. We have had several here in the past few years. Seeing the statistics on the map and knowing that is where my girls are makes me not very happy.

We will actually have our own car next summer. Since we're going to Vero, we're driving. I hope we get to see a lot of things that we wouldn't if we were flying into the Disney bubble, as usual.

Well, I did go with paper plates, which helped for a lot of the dishwashing. I got silver ones to look like tin plates, but I was told they weren't big enough for all that food, so I got out the bigger Dixie plates.

Spectro is coming back, but I haven't any knowledge of Stars and Cars. If Stars and Cars comes back, Brook definitely needs to see it!

I really enjoyed all the AK pictures! You do a great job of capturing all the little details that make the park so wonderful!

One of these days I'll get to watch the parade. Usually Everett is asleep in the stroller then, and I try to avoid the loud music of the parade so he doesn't wake up.

I love the idea of a Whispering Canyon Thanksgiving. If you want to know a secret, I don't love turkey, and would much rather have BBQ!

I am all caught up again.

Loved the parade pics.

I have never been in the direction of Rainforest Cafe. Looks cute.

I am sending your name to Disney so hey can hire you to take pics of merch and post it for people to buy, they would make a fortune. I always want to spend when I see updated from you.

I may have some very cute tropical ornaments that will be hung on a palm tree. The den will be 'Under the Sea', but the kitchen will remain Wilderness Lodge. If you've gotta make a potty stop, Animal Kingdom Lodge is right here for you! Would you say I have a serious problem???

He's not like my boys, huh? They could sleep through parades, trains, turbo jets... Never moved a muscle.

I'm not a huge fan of turkey, either. My favorite turkey is from Honeybaked Ham. Do you have those where you live? A turkey sandwich from there is worth trying.

That's a job I will take, Scott. Sign me up!!!

As for the Rainforest, just meander of to the right as you exit the park and you will see some fun little things back there. Better yet, when there is a long line at the turnstiles, go in through RFC and go through the empty turnstile back there.

And be sure to say hello to 'Cafe', Bella's name for the RFC frog, from Bella wheneve you are there.

June 30th



Little girl singing to no one at the bus stop.



First ride of the day will be...



The important job of carrying the time lanyard.







Ssssssscott, weren't you just here in your report?





All together now, 'It's the..........................'



You know finished it out loud, too, right? You are a real DISer.









I turned a couple of these up in photobucket, but as of now, I am still seeing them sideways. Hopefully they will right themselves soon.



Now to see some fairies.




















That's it for this morning.
I must get ready to go to school
to make more money
to go back to this place
to take more pictures...
since Scott hasn't secured that cool job for me yet!

I just love the Jungle Cruise...it's one of my favorites, and ALWAYS a must do! Sadly, it didn't get DONE on our last trip. I had never done it at night, so I made my family wait to do it during EMH...and it didn't open for EMH. I was so disappointed.

Your Bella is so adorable! I love the picture of her singing on the bench at the bus stop! And yes, that time badge is a VERY important job!
