  • NW Ratatouille Meet Report!

    It's the NW Mice Chat Ratatouille Meet!


    On our way to the meet, we got to see our beautiful Mt. Rainier...often mistaken for the Matterhorn.

    We all agreed to meet first at the Auburn Super Mall for lunch at noon. We were the first to arrive so while we waited, the Simply Mad-Ykiki clan kept busy.

    SM Junior Senior got in the spirit of the day.


    SM Junior Junior played Star Wars.

    Soon after that everyone else arrived.

    SM Junior Senior and Tinker got in on the Star Wars action.


    Mr. Tinkermonkey and the Monkey...aren't they cute!

    After lunch there was...


    Ratalootie for the kids which included...



    Melonballer brought some of his award winning (if they're not, they should be!) cookies...YUM!



    The Inspired by Walt clan...Mrs IBW, IB Waltlet Senior, IB Waltlet Junior, and IBW himself.

    IBW was a Pocky huh-hum...so we had to document his first Pocky!

    I think he likes it...hey Mickey!


    Then it was time for Melon to call the DL Meet...Hi Fishy....Happy Birthday Dusty!!!


    And not to be left out, TM called Pezz Lightyear, Disney Ballerina, and Skyway Girl from the Nor Cal meet!


    Our mini Mice Chatters: Monkey, IB Waltet Jr., IB Waltlet Sn., Tinker, SM Jr. Sn., and SM Jr. Jr.


    IBW wanted everyone to see the great parking space he got in the mall!


    The reason for the meetin'.


    Our men of Mice Chat, Ykiki, Inspired by Walt, and Melonballer.


    After the movie, TM pulled out all the stops and took our meet all the way to the Land Down Under! Hi Tassie!!!


    SM and Mrs IBW show off their DL bling!

    We had a great time and really enjoyed the movie!

    Tinkermonkey, Monkey, Simply Mad, SM Jr. Sn., SM Jr. Jr., Tinker, Inspired by Walt, Mrs. IBW, IB Waltlet Jr., IB Waltlet Sn., Melonballer, and Ykiki.

      I'll add my pics to this post tomorrow so we won't have duel threads.

      Thanks for posting first, SM.

      And thank you so much to TinkerMonkey, SimplyMad, and Mellonballer for all the yummy treats and fabulous prizes for us and the kids. :bow:

      Most of all, it was a small meet, but it was great to see everyone again. We gotta keep doing these. We'll make up any excuse! :yea:

        That looks like so much fun! You guys almost got a suprise appearance from us!

        Jeremys team did not win enough (any) games to have to play today so we left Spokane fairly early this morning. I was thinking I would be able to make it and was excited to see the movie... that was until about Cle Elum where there was an accident blocking ALL lanes - so we were stuck in the mountains for awhile and the chance went out the door

        I am glad to hear that everyone had SO much fun! Looks like it was a great time!

            Too bad you were held up by the accident. It would've been great if you and your family could have been there.

                Yay great to see this report!
                Good morning, son
                In twenty years from now
                Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                And I can tell you 'bout today
                And how I picked you up and everything changed
                It was pain
                Sunny days and rain
                I knew you'd feel the same things...

                        Great fun had by all!! I have some pictures to add tomorrow - for some reason, coherent thought is not with me tonight - must be the yummy cookies I'm still dreaming about!! (something about a chocolate chip cookie that tastes like both an actual cookie AND like cookie dough - there is a difference - just is really worth dreaming about!)

                        Llebreknit - that would have been so FUN and unexpected had you shown up! Silly car accidents!!! Next time though, ok?

                        I:loveL -- I have your cell and forgot to bring it with me!! I was totally planning on calling you too! You better be at the next one!

                        To anyone else who is thinking about coming to something here in the NW - we have a great time and would love to have more people join us! (even if you are visiting, let us know and we'll see what we can do!!)
                        I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

                        then 10 seconds later you’d be playing like you were best friends?"

                            It was. Anyways it is time for my photos.

                            I arrived a few minutes late. I had stopped at Comic Book Ink in Tacoma, WA to pick up a few things and got distracted talking to my friends that.
                            The meet was in full swing by the time I got there. I did not take a lot of pictures, but here is what I have.

                            You can see some of the neat party favors in this picture. Also you can see some of my cookies. I made Snickerdoodles, Chocolate Chip cookies, and Chocolate Chip cookies without nuts. I figured we had plenty of nuts already.



                            Anyways, right after lunch we got into a camera shoot out. Its me vs Inspired By Walt. Draw Partner!



                            ARGHHH! Tinkermonkey got me. Still its better than the lead pipe .



                            Then I called down to the Disneyland meet to chat with Fishbulb and DustySage. We wished our leader and founder a happy birthday and made them both Honorary Northwest Micechatters. What do you have to do to be an Honorary Northwest Micechatter? See the Washingtonian Micechatter thread, its really easy. Meanwhile Tinkermonkey chatted with PezzLightyear on her phone.

                            The kids playing with their Ratatouille Balloons.



                            And here is a picture of InspiredByWalt trying his first pocky ever.



                            Not bad!



                            On the way out to get to the theater, I stopped by the carousel to take a few pictures. It had some classic carousel animals on it.

                            A dragon.



                            A cat that has caught a fish.





                            A rooster.



                            That's the end of my pictures.

                            Anyways, they movie was great and it is a terrific theater. On the way out Tinkermonkey got a call from down-under. Tassie called. It was just after 9am MOnday their time. It was just after 4pm Sunday our time. I finally got to actually talk with Tassie who I have wanted to meet/talk to for a long time. She is awesome and it was definitely a highlight of the trip. We hung out for a good hour in the lobby chatting before we pakced it in. I had a great time and cannot wait for the next meet.
