  • Today we visited the fountain in Fountain Hills, had lunch at DJ's Bagel Cafe, then went thru the Scottsdale International Auto Museum. #fun #
  • Tonight we're going to a board games event at a local bookstore. Should be fun! I like learning new games. #

  • I woke up this morning still in shock at our room at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. It's breathtaking! It's so nice to have two bathrooms, too. #
  • It's almost time for me to crawl through a window and go 180 mph as a NASCAR passenger…. *eeeek!* #
  • The ride-along was incredible! I had so much fun! My driver Derek got up to about 140 mph. Three laps went by really fast at that speed. #
  • We had a fun & adventurous day at the Magic Kingdom! #
  • Parasailing was cancelled due to high winds, so we took the SeaSpray boats out. Andrew's wasn't working right, so he couldn't go fast. :( #
  • We just met The Mad Hatter at 1900 Park Fare! http://t.co/XfrY5oN #
  • I'm either having a severe allergic reaction to our room's HVAC dust, or I have strep throat. :( #
  • Remember that bit in our vows about "in sickness and in health?" This is the "sickness" part. #
  • Spending the day at EPCOT. Our Segway tour was really fun! Rode Mission Space (Orange side)… and didn't throw up. Mission accomplished! #
  • It would figure that I specifically ask for a ring shot during our anniversary portraits today, and woke up with a rash on my left hand. :( #
  • Our portrait session went very well this morning! #
  • Still not feeling well with a headcold, allergies and constant nausea. We're braving the boats & monorail to the Polynesian anyway. #
  • I met Pooh, Tigger and Eeyore at Animal Kingdom! #
  • The gates of Steak Heaven just opened wide and let me in to bask in garlic butter filet mignon glory @ The Yachtsman Steakhouse. For reals. #
  • No parasailing for us this trip. It's just too windy. Maybe next time! #
  • We had a magical time on our 10th Anniversary trip to Orlando! Highlights were Hogsmeade, my NASCAR ride along and our Segway Tour @ EPCOT. #

  • Someone actually joined my East Valley Genealogy Club! Woot! #
  • TGIF! #
  • Watching the live Barrett-Jackson collector car auction from Scottsdale. It's so much better on TV than in person. #

  • …and then my Genealogy Club member bailed on me. Sometimes I wonder if my constant efforts are worth it! #
