Busted can of biscuits. Bahahaahahah. That's too good.

I love all the under water pictures! They're awesome. I want one of them cameras!

Despicable Me 2 was fun, but I like the first one waaaay more. Maybe that's just me haha.

I'm glad you eventually found your way back to the Villa; I'm even more impressed you ran in that weather.

You may do silly and stupid things...but I've never seen a family who has so much fun doing them together as I have yours.

Dinner sounds yummy. I want to come with you on your next family trip.
Hahaha, it's how I want to do my planks.......

Well, it was a pretty unsuccessful run. If my calf wasn't hurting so badly, I don't know how long we would have stayed out there.

Thanks so much Kathy. We all share in our ridiculous nature, which makes it much easier for us to be silly together all the time.

You are welcome to come along anytime.

It was so nice, wasn't it? I would do it again in a heartbeat.

We never used to do it. But on lengthier trips and in the dead middle of summer, you really should make it a point to do it. Makes the trip significantly more enjoyable.

We didn't want him to work either, but he holds a really high position in the city that he works for, so it was almost a necessity.

You know what I really love the most is the total enjoyment you all get being together. That's what Disney was made for.
When we went through the pictures afterwards, I looked at Jason and was like "really dude?!"

We do like spending time together. Almost seems like an anomaly nowadays, doesn't it?

Loving your underwater photos, I definitely need to get one before our next trip
I was glad we made it back too. We were nervous about dying of thirst.

That waterproof digital camera was seriously one of the best investments I've made. It paid off on this trip.

Hahahaha, it so represented how I was feeling. It also often represents how I feel on various parts of my Disney trips because I eat so much!

The camera is awesome. Definitely one of the best purchases I've made.

I like them both for different reasons. I can't say I like one more than the other, just because they're different to me. But I completely understand liking the original one the best.

I'm all for relaxation day for longer visits to Disney! Or I call it Resort Day! Our past couple of trip have been too short to fit in a full day at the resorts but when we did our 7 Poly Stay we took a whole day off and spent it lounging by the pool and eating at Poly's restaurants. And a nap!! It was so awesome!

It looks like you had a very relaxing and fun day especially at the pool! May need to think about getting one of those waterproof cameras1

Seriously, non-park days are the best! It's so nice to not have anywhere to go! I love being able to use the pool and take pics of the resort that we pay a small fortune to stay at!

I love your underwater camera pics! You can tell you guys were having a lot of fun!


OK you are seriously motivating me to become a runner and I never run. If there was a zombie apocalypse, I would be one of the first to die. Apparently, I speed walk like nobody's business though. We were in NYC last week with some friends and they were making fun of me because I'd have to keep stopping to wait for them. Go figure?

All caught up. I enjoyed your underwater photos. We need to get an underwater camera. It seems to make good memories. LOL on Jason photobombing you underwater.

Yes, if you want to run or play tennis in the South, you have to either get up super early and get it done or go at night. 10:30 AM is just asking for trouble. Glad you found your way back OK.

Yup, we called it resort day too. It's so nice to just take a day off and relax. It really helps in making you feel like it's actually a vacation. Sometimes Disney can be super hectic if you let it.

I love my waterproof camera. I normally take the rest of my pictures with my iPhone, but having the waterproof camera is so nice.

I agree! We really got use of the pools on this trip and that was great.

I never ever by any stretch of the imagination thought I would enjoy running. Like, for real. But then when I started losing weight, I felt like I needed something that would have tangible goals to reach. So I started running and I really love it! It takes time though. You just gotta plug away at it, you know?

Yeah, we knew it was foolhardy, but we had so much want to run, that we just made it happen. LOL. I know we would have kept going if my calf hadn't been hurting. We're crazy.

You guys are dedicated to exercise on vacation! Good for you!

A resort and pool day sounds perfect. I love that you can have a BBQ at the treehouses.

Great pool pics. I'm all for dunking the children- we do what we have to do for a good TR

I really, really feel like I commented already. Like I even remember the words I wrote. I don't see a reply from me... Perhaps the app crashed? So I am just going to go ahead and apologize if this is a double. Lol!
Love the Littles' planks. When I plank (almost never) I tend to look more like Joaquin.
Man, I respect you guys going for a run on vacation! I would probably get lost too (although in disney I tend to have the best sense of direction!)
Love all the under water pics, so much fun!

Great update! My family does the same thing. When we do long trips we take a day to relax or do whatever. It's nice

ALMOST TRIP TIME!!! So excited for you! I wish I were going to Disney...it's very cold here and I could use some Floridian warmth.

This relaxation day sounds pretty great, especially with the barbecue. Good for you for exercising

That slide looks so fun!!

UNDERWATER PHOTOBOMB!!

Love the minions so much! They're hilarious.

Congrats on your trip being so close!!!!! Woo Hoo!

How did I miss your last update? Those underwater pictures are hysterical. Glad you had your underwater camera. Sounds like a great day to just kick back and relax.

I can't believe you went running in the blazing heat? Now THATS cray cray!

You - you guys totally set yourself up for minion chat!
