LOL @ the Splash photo! Never thought I'd see the day you'd be terrified of Splash at one point.

I'm excited to see those photos with the rare characters!
It's freaky right?! My Dad, Jason, and Joaquin all resemble each other in some way.

Hahaha! Most people never thought I'd be afraid of things. I wasn't a huge fan of big rides when I was younger. When I was about 14 years old, that changed when I started doing everything at Six Flags. Then of course I started working at Six Flags when I was 16, and the rest is history. I miss the pit in your stomach feeling when you're scared. But, what can you do?

Great find - I have that little Mermaid mug. Just re-found it myself when I cleaned out the cabinets.

I usually use my HUGE Disney mugs since it takes that much coffee to get me going nowadays.


Great Picture. I have one of DS screaming down Splash too. Waiting for an really embarrassing moment to display that.

Oh wait it is in my office.

Isn't it great when you find things cleaning out? I completely forgot my Grandma had them.

I normally get huge mugs too! I love the ones I found, but at the same time I'm like "they're a little small....."

Nice! Embarrassing pictures are the best. Problem is, clearly, I don't get embarrassed easily, so my Mom and Dad have a hard time with that.

I thought the pictures were great when I found them. I had to share.

It's epic, isn't it? So different than I am now.

Agreed. And I don't plan to ever cook a lot on vacation.

We could probably do with a kitchenette as it isn't like we cook a full turkey dinner or anything - though having the oven to be able to re-heat leftovers is sometimes nice
Shew! I am glad I am not alone in this! We always do breakfast stuff in the room and sandwiches for lunch is great but a big NO to full on cooking! My mom loves it though...I think she lives for it! I always tell my DH "I am not Faye!" (my mom)

I am glad to hear something good on the BBQ! I haven't dug too deep but it seems like mixed reviews from what I remember. The food looks good and I like the laid back look! And the jeggings...and Oscar!!! I love Oscar!

The flash back photos were great...especially the Splash photo!!

Awesome vintage photos! That Splash photo is epic! I can hear the screams all the way down the drop.

Awwww what's better than old Disney mugs for tea (or coffee) than to know they were grandma's. I like the Bambi one.

Dude I totally had that Lion King mug!!!now I'm wondering where the heck it ever went?

My grandfathers military pics are my favorite! I wish they'd been taken care of better before they were passed to me!

The Splash pic is so funny! I take pics like that on Dinosaur! Somehow I always look terrified!

Girl, you are so not alone on the not wanting to cook front! It's not called vacation for nothing!

I hadn't heard anything here nor there on the barbecue. I'm a fan of reviews, but at the same time, I'm the kind of person that also likes to make my mind up about stuff myself.

I know, you could totally hear me screaming down that entire hill, couldn't you?

It's true. They'll hold a special place in my heart because I know they belonged to her.

My parents have always had them too, but Grandma had some we didn't have, which was a score! Maybe your mug has disappeared into mug oblivion. You know, like left socks.....

Our pictures are all in really good shape for the most part, which I'm grateful for.

Hahaha! Just wait until you see some of our upcoming current PP pictures. Absolutely priceless.

The Treehouse Villas are very nice. One day I will stay there. I just cannot justify it with only the 2 of us.
The BBQ looked like fun. The food looked good being I cannot eat it. LOL
Nice mugs.
My father was in Vietnam but he died there. He stepped on a landmine.
All caught up. Looking forward to more.

Baha! Nice teaser, definitely the classiest of photos with you guys!!

I just did some Disney florist ordering for this apst trip! Itís such a good idea! I do wish I had known earlier in order to save up some more money for the whole room decoration things! They sound totally awesome!!

This backyard bbq sounds like my kinda place1

Baha, as if she didnít notice they were jeggings?!

Sounds like a great evening, lots of all you can eat food and some characters thrown in there, why not?! I also really want to do the campfire they have with chip and dale too!

Great finds with the mugs and the pictures!!

I could never justify staying there either unless we had 7 people going. Otherwise, I can guarantee we wouldn't stay there again.

Awwww, no BBQ? I don't eat it under normal circumstances. I'm on a pretty strict diet at home.

I'm sorry about your Dad. I'm grateful mine came back, definitely. It was always a possibility that he didn't though. They lost a lot in his unit, because he was infantry.

Awesome that you did the florist! We haven't ordered from them in quite some time, but she really wanted to get something for the boys.

The BBQ is tons of fun! If we ever overlap a trip, we should do it together!

I have no idea how she never noticed they didn't have pockets. I guess she just wasn't looking out for it.

Right?! I haven't done the campfire in years. We did it way way way back in the day when we stayed at the trailers (they weren't called cabins yet) at FW.
