Melody got some really nice pictures of the kids and Coronado Springs. Juliana's too cute with that "hand on hip" pose of hers.
YEP... she still poses.

Thank you Kathy!

I am so loving the CSR poster girl's photos all around the Coronado. And now she has her little brother with her. She sure has grown up a lot since that first stay at the CSR.
She sure has grown!

Oh now you've gone and done it...you made me cry to see how beautifully she has grown.

FYI...a little package was sent out today for her and Christopher.

I've been crying all weekend. She has grown into a beautiful young girl. The same age that those murdered kids were.

Thank you Kathy. I'll keep my eye out for it.

Nice job on the run! If they had a corral for the "30-minute mile" runners, that's where you'd find me.

Juliana sure does know how to strike a pose!

I am super glad that Donald really opened Christopher up. I was like oh no, even his favorite, Mickey, couldn't do a thing. And to top it off, Goofy sneaking up..i couldn't imagine what was going through your mind!

Love the update! Sounds like this was a pretty neat race! I can imagine it was emotional for you. Pretty good time!

Great pictures around CSR! It is def one of my favorite hotels. So peaceful.

Like others have said I cannot believe how much she has grown! You can also see the excitement in her face that she is there with her baby brother!

This news broke my heart. I cannot listen to the radio or watch the news. I have been so badly effected by this. One of the teachers at the school went to college with me, she was my friends RA. Thankfully she is OK, but those poor kids. My heart and my head can't handle it.

I'm sure you could be put in the 20 min/mile runners. Don't sell yourself short.

That's cool! What is different with yours compared to the 100's that are out there now?

It was weird because he never showed an interest in Donald before... I guess it was just one of those things.

I was just thinking- 'This is going to be a long week.'

It was fun! About 1200 runners. It was a really run run and I hope to run it again someday.

CSR is beautiful! Too bad Melody doesn't really care for it.

Yea, she was super excited! She was the Disney 'expert' showing Christopher the ropes.

Wow... I'm glad she is OK. I'm DJing an after wedding party on Saturday and the brides nephews were in the school. Luckily they weren't hurt. It is such a horrible tragedy.

This is the first of your TRs that I have read so I had to click the link to get the back story about your DD. How scary, when my oldest DD was a day old her pediatrician came to my room and said she had a mass in her abdomen. We were lucky though, at eight days old she had surgery to remove the mass and half of her liver. They determined that she was going to be a twin and quit dividing. But that feeling.....so scary.

I know what you mean. the slightest thing seems so huge when everyone is asleep!

maybe they were just guessing on the hopeful side

Good for you Tim! It looks like it was a fun but def. emotional run to be going around the places where you visited with Ana on her Wish trip.

They look like they are having a blast. I remember how much Katie loved the sand when we stayed at CSR in '07

.

oh my gosh Tim -- its so hard to see your beautiful girl so big already and then to think about those poor kids and teachers & their families. You all have been in my thoughts and prayers so much. I cannot even imagine the stress level for CT families right now. Here in PA I can turn off the news and keep Katie's exposure to this within my limits, sharing small amounts without scaring her. but for you, its so in your face, there's just no avoiding it. Extra big hugs and kisses to your kiddos!!

We drove over to Cabanas 8B and saw we had a first floor standard room. Awesome. Just what we wanted. I forget our room number (i forgot to take a picture of it) but we were on the right hand side of the building- a mere 30 second walk to the bus stop. We plopped all our belongings down- well, it was more like I took numerous trips to the car- and started to unpack a bit. Christopher decided he would help.
I'm glad you had better luck checking in than we did. I think I would have rather been in 8B than 8A. A little farther from the dig site and a lot closer to the parking lot.

It is a scary feeling knowing that your child is sick or needs surgery. I know any parent would gladly trade places if they could. I don't know if it is any easier when your child is small to have a major surgery. One good thing about having a surgery so early in life is that they don't remember it.

I don't know what it is about sand but kids just love it!

We have been keeping the news off. She knows a bit about what happened but doesn't know all the details (that we know). There has been a police man at her school this week and I'm not sure but there might be one there indefinitely.

At least no Team Barry people have shown up to try to sabotage this TR.
