Welcome to a new week :)

1. Has spring "sprung" by you yet?

2. What are you wearing today?

3. Do you make a special menu for Easter (if you celebrate it)?

End of summer when many kids are back in school.

Yep, We took our kids to Disney the end of August 2009 and the timing did make a difference.  You'd have to experience it to understand it, Lol.

My mother was a little over 5' tall and I'm 5'6, Of the four of us sisters two of us are taller and two were about mom's height, Maybe a tiny bit taller - like 5'2.  My daughters are pretty tall and I predict that for DS too.

"Yep, We took our kids to Disney the end of August 2009 and the timing did make a difference.  You'd have to experience it to understand it, Lol. "

Having been to WDW in late August, I will agree the crowds were lower but the heat and humidity made for an unpleasant trip.   Out of our 4 WDW vacations, this on the one where it rained most often.  The poor weather outweighed any benefits (in my opinion) of lower crowds.  

This year we are going in mid November.  We haven't been to WDW in 8 years,  and we are all looking forward to trip.

We have a family meeting when it comes to planning "family" vacations.

Vacations when I was a kid was spending all day and most of the night at the swim club up the street, Great memories! I remember only two vacations away from home: One was to West Point NY for my dad's reunion and the second was to Connecticut where family lived and neither we had a say so in.

Ok, I thought it was more than not seeing eye to eye, More like moms ripping their own moms apart and adamantly professing  that they'd never become like them.  It was a pretty depressing thread and I'm glad you weren't re-visiting that one, But oh the memories...</p>

But yet, both you and CC are revisiting the issue and in such a lovely passive agressive way while fabricating drama and well, facts.  Just when it couldn't go any lower than LoL at a deathly food allergy, congrats. I guess, if that was the intent.  And....what were you saying earlier about why bring relatives into this debate?  Perhaps you could go back and answer your own question?  Wow.

D'Oh! OK then Ms. Arthur. What say you about sarcasm, for its own sake? You love it, don't ya. ;)

Shaking my head at the things grown women get their panties in a wad about.

"I'm thinking I'd rather spend a week in prison than a week on Atlantis." --------- De gustibus and all that, but yeah, gotta say, even at 7 or so, I am pretty sure dd would have thought it over the top tacky.

That's what I was thinking....Florida in August?  Talk about heat and humidity, there is a reason there aren't any crowds then!
