Slowest. Internet. Connection. Ever.

We have finished day 2 at D-land. I have a TON of pictures, but the internet connection at this amazing little timeshare is slow like molasses in wintertime. (?? That was the first simile that came to mind.) I've been trying for 50 minutes to upload about 10 of the 100 pictures I took of the 2o minutes surrounding THIS EVENT: I KNOW! That's my son fighting Darth Vadar. I'll save the whole story, but it was a highlight.
This was the first ride we went on--it's the old submarine ride, which is now Finding Nemo. I think you can feel Syd's nerves in this close up. Ironically, ALL of her nerves have been transferred to Carson, whom we have had to remove from 3 lines so far, kicking and screaming in fear. I don't want to point fingers, but I'm pretty sure it stems from one of his parents taking him on Space Mountain at the objection of the other parent, and now my sweet baby is afraid of the dark and anything that moves quickly or makes a loud noise. I'll let you decipher my wicked complicated code.

Since the computer won't let me upload all my pics, I'll leave you with this one. This is the T fam on Main Street, 1o minutes before the park opened on Day One. I have a feeling we will not be this chipper looking on Day Five, but by golly, we're living it up in Dland!

Carson makes a fantastic Jedi knight! Thanks for posting, in spite of such slow internet. Maybe every other family in the place was doing the same thing! Here's hoping that today brings more fun than fearful moments for Carson.

Oh my goodness - if Will and Owen see the picture of Carson in full Star Wars mode we will have to go straight there and not pass go so that they too can have such an AWESOME experience. Can't wait to here that story!

And I love the photo of you four on Main Street. Happy Family holiday!

I'm jealous. Of Carson that is, not the internet connection. I was nine when the original movie came out and dreamed of battling Darth Vader.

Love the pictures! I just looked at each one with Ethan. He had me blow each one up and then start all over. =) He LOVED the one of Carson!

First of all, Henry wants to know how he can fight Darth Vader, too. **Add much whining here** THAT IS AWESOME!!!

Second, TRENT! How could he????

Third, you hair, my dear, is, as they say, quite lovely. I shall now go make an appt to get mine cut back off in the same manner b/c of your cuteness.

Sorry for the slow connection! Don't let it stop you from posting more!!! ;) I kid.

Looks like fun! We enjoyed going there when we registered Penny's adoption at the Thai consulate in Hollywood. An experience of a lifetime! Treasure all these moments!
