Congratulations to the bride and groom. Love your photos of Niagara Falls and especially the brilliant photo with you and the adorable dog. Looking forward to your report and hope you get plenty of time to relax as well.
Brix is their second Bernese Mountain dog. They use pictures of him (first one was a her) on a sticker on each bottle that says "Brix approved" - so the picture is of Brix 2.0
Waahhooo!!! Let's get this party train moving!
Choo choo!!
Can’t wait to hear all about the trip!
and I cant wait to go!!!
Congrats on the wedding. After all those guests I‘d say you and Tricia have definitely earned a vacation.
Yes - it was great to entertain and show them our little corner of the world but it can be tiring.
You will experience when I come to your place for Christmas.
Wohoo! Congratulations!! I am definitely in for this!
Always nice to have you on the team!!
Looking forward to seeing your trip report! The wedding news is terrific too!

The photographer was being a little cheeky as this picture was being taken. She told us to look at our favourite child. This is why the girls have such funny looks on their faces.
and later she told Tricia and I to look at our favourite daughter....

Congratulations on your daughter's wedding! I bet your Soarin speech was a bit hit! Looking forward to your TR!
Totally surprised her with it - I think we counted only 10 people who actually got the full joke - the rest thought it was just a take off of a normal airplane flight instruction and still thought it was funny

But for the ten that did understand - especially for Cassie - it was worth it!!!!

Thanks for following

Landed early in Atlanta around 8:20 and had our first magical meet of the trip!

Met @lostpro9het and @imahistorygeek at a pub at the airport

They had just landed from their Orlando flight

Sean and I set this up and it was great !! Got to know each other better - talked about almost everything

We are all big fans of Disneyland in Cali-
Maybe another meetup in the future ??

I was too quick for Sean and picked up the bill

You buy next time buddy !!!
