  1. Is anyone from or near Tucson, AZ? NaCole is having camper issues and needs some help with axles and springs work.
  2. Thinking about it- we are a bit of the oddity with only 2 kids. 3-4 is much more common. 5+ isn’t super unusual. You see more of that than families with just 1 kid.
  3. We are a family of 4 whole live in one for the past (almost) 3 years. One of our best friends are 2 parents, 6 daughters, and 1 dog that live in their RV for the past two years now. What would you like to know? Ask me anything. [emoji4]
  4. Horseshoe Bend was beautiful but terrifying. There. are. no. railings. Just me, kids, and a million foot drop.
  5. Definitely pay for a slot canyon tour. Something made me choose the Lower Antelope Canyon tour. If you’re morning people, the earlier the better as they get backed up by mid-day. We waited about an hour from when we left the building to when we got down into the slot canyon. BUT- totally worth it. It was expensive, but the pictures were stunning.
  6. We don’t often put in requests- we like trying the different loops out! :)
  7. With our Thousand Trails membership + Trails Collection add-on, we did winter very cheaply this year. Dec 17-31, Royal Coachman in Nokomis, FL Dec 31-Jan 15, Breezy Hill in Pompano Beach, FL (we split our stay between free and paid nights to be near friends- wouldn’t recommend this park) Jan 15-20, Pioneer Village in North Fort Myers, FL Jan 20-Feb 3, Lake Magic, Clermont, FL (super easy to get onto Disney property) Feb 3-17, Thousand Trails Orlando, Clermont, FL (just 3-4 miles up 27 from 192 & still convenient to Disney) Feb 17-20, Winter Garden RV Resort Feb 20-27, Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake, Orlando, FL (not incredibly convenient to Disney but fantastic for Universal) Feb 27-Mar 13, Tropical Palms in Kissimmee, FL (convenient to Disney) Mar 13-20, Thousand Trails Orlando, Clermont, FL Mar 20-Apr 3, Lake Magic , Clermont, FL Total cost: right about $1,000 but that was only because we paid to be near friends in southeast Florida ($850) and wanted to try Bill Frederick Park ($150). We could have filled those parks in with others. And now, TT did change the rules on the Trails Collection parks that I won’t get away with going from one TC park to another like I did before. But, it’s definitely manageable. If you aren’t adverse to moving and want to explore a little, this is great. I was NOT enthusiastic about some of the That said, I have friends who have a TT membership and a deed at Fawn Ridge and move every 2 weeks between the 2. They spend about $1,000/year on maintenance/annual fees but winter from Nov-Mar on it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I definitely feel like it’s a game changer. But we have the luxury of being here in Orlando for a couple of months in the winter. We hadn’t been into the parks for a couple of weeks but went in twice this week (Tuesday all day and Wednesday night). Both days, the crowds were batcrap crazy with Wednesday being worse). We were not trying to “do it all” so it actually made for a fun day. But we also know we can just go in for a couple of hours and roll. In fact, that’s exactly what we did Wednesday- had dinner at Narcossee’s and went into MK after the fireworks. Did a little shopping, some people watching, and rode the people mover and that was it before heading out to the truck. It was date night with Momma and heavenly. [emoji4]
  9. The Behind the Seeds tour kept my 4-ish and 12-ish year old edutained. My son literally had a question at every opportunity and the cast member (and other guests) were patient and kind about it. Pictures here: https://flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157680100351626
  10. We did the Keys to the Kingdom Tour and absolutely would do it again. Loved it. I did a write-up for Kelly’s blog: https://letsplanwdw.com/2016/08/19/keys-to-the-kingdom-tour-review/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Here’s an article on the Balloon Baby: http://www.kob.com/albuquerque-news/balloon-baby-mother-gives-birth-at-balloon-fiesta-rv-park/4635478/?cat=500 I’m “sad” to say, they went with a non-balloon name with Cecelia. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. The baby is still unnamed, but our group has taken to calling her Balluna (get it? Balloon-a). We'll see what they pick- the next before she was born, they were at the book store flipping through baby name books. Someone asked me later in the night if I really did spill my bladder or if I was just making it up. Clearly they weren't close enough to the truck when they asked. I'm sad to say- it's true. It's ALL true. It's always something. :)
