    I may be starting to get a little teensy bit excited.

    I went out today to buy Steven's birthday presents and also bought some holiday clothes. :mental:

    We all have passports now so I can do the ESTA stuff. I do that yes? Who does the API stuff - me again?

    All the bits and pieces stuff is booked and paid for. Just the flights and car hire that needs paying by 70 days out.

    I think I may be going to Disney World. Where's the Wall E planning notebook. I need lists. :thumbsup:

    Not actually out but have been discussing with Adrian the possibility of us cramming our stuff into 1 case on the way out and taking 2 empties with us. :lol:

    Need to confirm with travel agent exactly what our baggage allowance is.

    Took him swimming today to one of those pools with all the splashy bits and he said it was just like a practise for Typhoon Lagoon.

    I'm doomed to 2 weeks on the lazy river. :rotfl:

    Thanks, will check that out. We normally use Tesco stuff but they don't do a waterproof version.

    we always ued no ad ( :unsure: ) I think it was called it didn't make the kids explode into rashes and was dead cheap as they didn't do any adveritising - haven't seen it for a while now.

    The boys loved the waterparks sooooo much , ours preferred Blizzard beach, which was lucky as it was the only one open

    The holiday planning DVD's are banned at the moment :nono: as Matthews head would virtually come off with yearning. We had a major hissy last night because I told him we weren't going to adopt an Amur leopard.

    So excited for you

    Do you have a countdown anywhere in the house - we usually have one chalked up somewhere in a mickey head and the boys take turns at dropping it down each day - like the ultimate advent calendar
