Luckily your sister E enjoys trips to WDW even if your brother doesn’t. I can’t wait to read about J’s first trip 😀
Yes--I still wonder if he actually belongs in our family :cautious:
My brother & his wife are more beachy, relaxing vaction kind of people so Disney really isn't their thing. All of my sisters except one are big Disney park people. My mom was also. It's not that my sister doesn't like it there-she's been multiple times. She just doesn't get into it as much as we do. I've lucked out with E b/c J's not in school yet so we can go pretty much whenever we want. I'm not quite sure what's going to happen though once he starts school. Either my trips will slow down considerably or maybe they'll be solo ones!!
J's first trip is the next one up!!

So I checked our pics from our Feb 2016 trip and couldn't find you in any, lol. Although it looks like we were in the MK on the same day and met Rafiki that morning too,so who knows, maybe we passed one another!

We probably did!! I remember that we were pretty much got there when the park opened that day.
Can’t wait!
Thanks!!
Such cute boys. Thank you for sharing. Hope you are well.
Thank you very much for the kind words! I'm hanging in there. We'll see how Mother's Day goes tomorrow....

I recall us having an early flight. E, J & J went down a few days before we did so they were already there.
C managed to get a seat in the first row!! And surprise, surprise it was raining in Pittsburgh......

Yes--your eyes are not deceiving you. J has very long hair!! E was set on his first haircut being done at Disney. Even though his hair got super long she refused to cave in & have it cut somewhere else!!

Don’t let her know i’ve told you guys, but my DD was still very bald at 1 😉 - she’s made up for it now as a teenager with hair halfway down her back - and given her height, that’s long!

Thanks!!
I saw this on Facebook and thought of you and your picture issues! Not sure if it’ll help.

Thank you!! I know my magic band isn't the problem b/c I end up getting a new one each time just b/c I'm afraid to confuse the situation if everyone else on the reservation is getting one & I wouldn't. As much as I love Disney they do have a tendency to screw things up quite a bit. I guess I should probably check at the end of each day when I'm there & let them know-sooner than later-when they don't show up. Thanks for thinking of me!!
Omg, J’s hair! My daughter is almost 2 and hers isn’t that long yet!
It was quite long--to the point where E had to use a bobby pin in it otherwise his hair would be in his face. But she was determined that his first haircut would be at MK!!

Nothing wrong with being bald!! :) And, don't worry, I won't say a word!!
@riverside , I've been thinking about you today and everyone else who has lost their mom in the past year. It was a rough morning at our house too, but things have evened out a little. Hopefully, you get some comfort in all of the good memories you have!
Awwww, thank you very much. That is so sweet of you. I had many friends & family sending me texts throughout the day telling me what a great woman my mom was & how they were thinking of me & my family. I was so grateful & touched by them as I am with your's. It really means a lot to know that people care.😘 Ok, I'm going to try to stop crying now......

Sorry your morning was rough but I'm glad things settled & I hope you enjoyed your special day!! I don't know if I'm explaining this correctly but I just felt a real emptiness about myself yesterday. I purposely stayed away from Facebook & Instagram b/c I didn't want to see everybody's Mother's Day posts. I didn't want to be sadder than I already was plus to be honest(& I don't want to sound like a selfish brat in the least) I felt kind of envious of those who still have their mom. I know I need to be a big girl & grow up but it's only been 3 weeks since she passed so I guess it's still very fresh for me.

Since I am the only one of my sisters without kids I said I was going to have dinner for them. Olive Garden catering it was!! I don't cook in the least so this was much more edible than anything I could make!! It was good & there was so much that everyone's coming back for dinner today to finish the leftovers!! We did smile & laugh at a lot of memories.

My mom passed away two years ago and I found all the “firsts without” difficult - the second year it was easier. But I think we all go through a moment at one time or another when we want to share something with our mom only to remember we can’t and a moment of sadness passes by.

I believe these were taken before we rode Buzz so they're a bit out of order.

Doesn't he look thrilled?

We finally met up at one point(probably after we rode Buzz) and rode the people mover. E stayed off with J who was napping.

Next was a ride on the teacups. I took J & A on. When J was very young he didn't care for me much. Needless to say he was pretty upset that I was the one taking him on the ride. He really started crying so my sister C hopped in with us so he would calm down.

He still looks pretty upset. I don't think he had a good time.

It looks like we watched FoF.

We were headed to the Poly.
