Since Bubba is sleeping, instead of being on FB, you could be reading my numerous updates or updating yourself.

I was trying to do an update... I was getting distracted with Facebook. Oh, well, there is always tomorrow.

How wonderful that you got to hear Noah's parents speak! I think Maroo might have helped with this family at one point too? I remember his story and the angel the DIS gave him.

Reading about that, thinking of it, and then seeing little Juliana has me in tears over here! It's wonderful to see her now - years later, all grown up!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!!

Yes. Maroo met them in WDW and showed them around a bit.

Dive Into The Pool! Saturday 11/3

I made it back to CSR after my 5K, ate some breakfast, and just relaxed for a few minutes. Melody & I tried to plan out our day. It was about 11am and Christopher was already getting fussy & Juliana wanted to swim. We had to be in MK for 430 for an appointment. So we formulated a plan. Let Christopher sleep in the room while I take Juliana swimming at the pool. Seemed like a good plan. I changed into my bathing suit and Juliana and I head off to the pool.



Looking back towards 8B



Where are we again?



We are almost there...



Ah yes... there we are!







This guy needs to quick drinking at the pool bar.





Juliana posing...



Oh NO!! Watch out!



It couldn't of been a nicer day...



Enough messing around. Let's get in the pool!





Juliana and I swam and went down the water slide at least 10 times. The pool wasn't busy at all. There were a few beach balls floating in the pool that we were playing with and we worked on Juliana's swimming strokes. We swam for about an hour. We went back to the room so I could switch with Melody and Juliana could swim longer while Christopher slept. I took a shower and got ready. Luckily Christopher slept through that. Melody and Juliana came back from the pool and Christopher woke up. He had a much needed 2 hour nap. I got a text from a guest that was arriving at CSR within the hour. We were going to head to MK, but we hung around the resort waiting for our guest.




Up Next- A Cut, A Flag & a Mouse!

I'm glad that Christopher got his nap in and Juliana got to get a lot of quality swimming time.

I really do like the Cabanas section...it's really about to edge out my all-time favorite Casitas.

Where are we again?



We are almost there...



Ah yes... there we are!








Great pictures of our princess.

This guy needs to quick drinking at the pool bar.



Yes, he's been doing that for years now.



Juliana posing...



Oh NO!! Watch out!

Perfect weather.

LOVE that slide. Glad Mel got some time to swim with Ana and that Christopher got his much needed nap.

I think I know who the guest is.

Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

I think our pool day was one of our favorite days. Such awesome weather we had in early Nov!

I just posted all the AoA pool pics today, and it must be theme of the day!

Are you kiddin' me? She'd spend all day swimming if we let her, even in Disney.

Jumping in a little late, but oh well!

Loved your pictures from the race! I'm not too familiar with the organization but it definitely seems like a wonderful cause that's very close to your heart. I'm also a fairly new runner (I started in April) so I know how exciting a sub-30 5k time cane be (or at least how it was for me!) Point of my ramble- congrats!

It looks like you had beautiful weather. CSR looks like a nice place, especially the pool!

Did you find your saving to be significant going into Tampa, even with a car rental? I never considered using another airport (instead of MCO) so I'm curious.
