Day 5 cntd....

I poured a fresh beer for the walk to HS and we headed out. We love that you can just walk all the way down the corridor of the DVC side of BWV until the very end and exit out the side of the building which puts you past the quit pool on the path to HS. Great way to get a little extra a/c before you head outside and your much further down the path than if you were to exit at the pool or lobby area.

Pretending they are famous and hiding from the camera. They kept quoting Ana Faris from the movie Best Friends when she walks in the bar and hides her face and says, "yes, Im famous, very exciting"... lol

They eventually agreed to a picture.

We planned to meet my sister and the boys over on Sunset to ride RnR. They were a few minutes behind us so I hung out with my tour group for awhile since I really hadnt spent much time with them this trip.

We spotted my sister and the boys and walked over to RnR.

The crowds were pretty light and the wait times were low. We were inside in no time! I caught a few girls trying o sneak backstage without some passes.

As we were deciding who was gonna pair up for the ride, C asked my nephew P if he wanted to ride with her but he said he was gonna ride with Minor. C and P had a lot of fun at AK that morning and had been cracking jokes and taking silly pictures and she told him she wanted to get an on ride photo with him, but he stuck with his choice of riding with Minor, which bummed out C a little bit. But of course....P had a plan. As we waited in line, he whispered to me that he really was gonna ride with his auntie C but was gonna wait until we got to the front of the line to tell her. He really knows how to play hard to get, lol. He told Minor and my sister so they would be aware that they were gonna actually ride together. As we were assigned our rows, P lined up behind C and didnt say anything. C said, "I thought you wanted to ride with her" as she pointed towards Minor. P just gave her a big smile and thats when she realized he had tricked her. She was very happy to get to ride with him. They decided on doing whatever this is for the ride picture...

He jokes around a lot but for as young as he is, he puts a heavy emphasis on family. He adores C and there were several times that day at AK in the morning and HS at night that I saw them walking together separate from the group and joking around and it just put a big smile on my face. I love those "Disney moments" when time kinda slows down for a few seconds and you notice your family smiling and laughing as you stroll along. Of course that can happen anywhere, but it is always better at Disney:)

Day 5 contd...

After RnR we made our way over to Star Tours.

Ya ya, we get it, your famous, very exciting....

P and Minor are two peas in a pod.


Every year since they were little, my sister has her two boys take one of the Star Wars character pictures in Tatooine Traders. The boys love it as well so its never a struggle to get them to do it. She has them hung up on the wall of the boys game room at home.

There are several others not showing in the picture but you get the idea.

While her and the boys got the pictures taken, the rest of us decided to hit up Baseline for some refreshments. Soon after they joined us.

A CM put out some hool-a-hoops and the kids had a complete field day with them. They were just as excited to play with them as if they were riding an E ticket attraction. Just another reason why Disney is truly a magical place.

Of course, boys will be boys. P nearly assaulted his big brother, lol. Their dad stepped in to settle them down.

You can see my sisters injured foot covered up in this pic. I still laugh when I picture P telling the CM's "but mom's sick", hahaha.

I tried a few times but luckily there are no photos of me completely failing with the hoola hoop.

@wdisney9000 who?
Oh, you don’t know either? I think he’s the guy who started this TR.
I have heard of that guy. He is a dream boat!

But seriously, I appreciate the kick in the pants to get this TR going again. Mornings are when I get most of my time here on magic and its been pretty busy. C and her mom arrived at WDW yesterday so Im hoping to have some extra time the next few days while shes there.

And I did not mention it here, but Akira is pregnant! Winnie, our male Dutch Shepherd is the father. She should be giving birth any day now! She is in full blown pregnancy mode and is being a picky eater and going to the bathroom 8 million times a day.

But I will make an effort to resume this report at any moment. Please remain in your Doom Buggies!!

Enjoy the puppies! They are a whole bunch of work, but worth every second of it! We went through the puppy whirlwind last year with Kricket and Jaeger, and I promptly had her spayed as soon as it would be safe for her and her brood. We definitely didn't want to do the craziness again. :facepalm::hilarious:

I liked them best at this size...LOL!
Perfect puppies.jpg
They're not so bad this size either...

Her babies just celebrated their 1st birthday a few weeks ago, and I was lucky to get pics from their new families.

Sorry for the hijack...I can't help myself when it comes to puppies!!!

Oh my! I think back to your video of Akira when she was a puppy, and you were training her. I recall her bringing her dog dish to the kitchen on command. :hilarious: And now she's going to be a mom?! Time flies!!

:jawdrop: 14 1/2 hours!! Poor momma! ( i'm not shaming, i just feel for any female that endures 14 1/2 hours)
It was nearly 24 hours from start to finish. The last one was late last night but it was still born. Very sad, but common. But all the pups and Akira are doing well. She finally got some rest last night and was up for morning feedings.

Same thing happened with our Kricket. We lost the 5th puppy born. I named him Johnny5 after the robot in Short Circuit, and he is out back with our other beloved animals we have lost.

They are beautiful puppies. I bet you are super proud of Mama Akira!!
