Florida Days

We are now in Florida, full swing into our trip. The ride on Saturday was relatively uneventful, although we did get started a bit late due to a migraine I had. We got going about 8 am, made one stop for lunch and gas, another for gas and snacks and made it here by 9:30 pm. Had a few troubles getting into the first room they gave us, so we were moved and have happily settled into our space. The food made it down fine, the meat was even still frozen!

On Sunday we went to Sea World, but it rained late in the day and we headed out early. Yesterday we went to the timeshare session for the place we are staying. Even though we get great exchanges through my parent's timeshare, we are thinking we want to find a place of our own. After the big pitch, Ryan and I decided we really liked the resort here and want to try their other location in Vermont before we make a decision. We bought a "Think About It" package and will go to Vermont this summer to tour their facility. If all goes well, we will purchase with them and do a week in Vermont each summer and a week here in Florida each January.

After the timeshare thing, we headed over to the Magic Kingdom and had a great time. Even though it is chilly here, we are enjoying having the park relatively empty and not having to wait on long lines. Today we will do Animal Kingdom, and this time of year they close at 5 so we will come back here for dinner and I can focus on work. Tomorrow is Sea World again, plus dinner with Shamu, and then we will close out the trip with either Epcot of Magic Kingdom, whichever the kids want to do. We always have so much fun on these trips, we do things the way we want, take our time, and really enjoy ourselves. Aside from having to fit in schoolwork and regular work, I love being able to spend time with my kids and husband. Time to get going, Animal Kingdom is waiting!

Haha. He has been a giant pain in the ass, wanting to be carried everywhere. We actually got a strolle today for Animal Kingdom because our backs couldn't take much more!

I will have him call you on his watch phone and explain the lack of pictures!
