    What lovely pics, Patrice –

    btw I agree that WDW is not the place for great coasters – the best one is the Rock-n-Roll/Aerosmith one at MGM I think, but if you are really looking for good roller coasters, Universal is way better IMHO!

About Me

I'm a grieving mom. I have one beautiful daughter, Annika, who's 3 years old now (born 12/28/04). I also had twins, Lina and Cole, on 10/04/07, born at just 26 weeks. We lost Cole after just 23 days due to complications related to his prematurity. Fiesty little Lina overcame so much and just when she was getting ready to come home with us, suddenly had a complication unrelated to her prematurity and passed away on January 11, 2008. This blog is about getting through it. More...
