I have really learned lately that I have let myself get way too out of shape. I have still not been able to get in a good rhythm for a running schedule. It seems that every time I have a plan, something comes up. The plan was Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday this week. I got my Tuesday in, but shortened it because Thursday most likely won't happen due to a schedule change that moved a commitment from Wednesday to Thursday. So now I'm running two days in a row which I usually don't do. I'm still keeping decent pace on my runs, just not doing well with distance.
We had a great time in New Orleans. We did a swamp tour and toured the Oak Alley Plantation. We also visited one of the cemeteries. This was my fifth trip to NOLA and the first time I got out of the French Quarter for anything touristy. It was great fun. My first visit to the French Quarter made me realize the Port Orleans French Quarter was greatly themed. And now that I've done the swamp and plantation, I have more appreciation for Riverside (though I do think that FQ better lives its theme).
Magic Meets was great fun again this year. Over $26,000 dollars was raised for the Dream Team and quite a bit was raised for Deb Wills' Avon Walk.
We hit Cedar Point with my niece and nephew on Sunday. It was HOT and there were no clouds or breeze until the afternoon. But luckily crowds were very manageable and we rode all the headliners (some multiple times) and were out of the park two hours before closing. The food there is so expensive though. $8.50 for a burger and fries. $3.69 for a 21 oz soda. It makes WDW counter service look like a bargain.
Looks like I'm heading to San Francisco for work in October. My plan is to check out the Walt Disney Family Museum. I am so excited about that one.
I'll be in the World for Tower of Terror and for the non-MouseFest weekend in December. Let me know if you will be around for either of those weekends.
