Day 1,
Jason had called the day before and told me get things together we are leaving a day early due to the storm heading toward us, But don't tell the kids ! so we didn't . we sent them to school this morning. After they got on the bus we started packing up the SUV. After we had everything in the car, we started going though the house unplugging everything. Putting the computers in safe areas...hopefully. We hope to come home to a house with no damage. Here’s hoping!
So after being done we locked up the house and headed to get the kids from school it was 9:29 am, I walked in the school told them I needed to get the kids we are heading out of town early due to the storm. So they called the kids down and we walk out to the car...the kids get in and we start to drive, then i start taping them... we tell them we are leaving for disney now .. Here’s the video...


Then after Alexis was super happy .. it took her a few mins to understand...
Here's me on the way ...

Jason driving...

The kids playing their DS games ...
Alexis ...

James ...



So we are off...

We finally get to the Florida’s welcome center.... I love welcome centers, I got some free OJ and some hotel books and took some photos of the kids at the welcome to Florida sign... It's a have to do thing....






They are just too cute

I love Alexis in her big sunglasses....

James is such a cool dude!


So now we are back in the car and as we drive we see bus after bus heading toward New Orleans - we think, that’s where they are going -

By now we hear the path is still heading towards New Orleans..... So at that point I was glad we left early because now we beat everyone out of town, because tomorrow we knew the road would have been a mad house...

on the way Jason says Mandy call Disney and see if we can check in early and add two nights on at pop so we don’t have to stay outside Disney, so I call and pop is fully booked only mods are open so we say no thank you , that we will see you on Saturday then.. So off to the hotel outside of Disney.

We got to the hotel outside of Disney around 10:30pm this will be our home for 2 sleeps before we check into the Disney. We got it for $34.95 a night not bad…

We get in the room take showers and watch Stacy on the TV. Then off to sleep…


Day 2 , do we go to disney world tomorrow ?

The video is SO cute! (and so are your kids!) Too bad you couldn't stay on property but what a great rate you got for a couple of nights. I sure hope the storm doesn't prevent you from getting into WDW the next day!

Great start so far. Cute video. I love how Alexis was like " But it's not the 29th" so funny, reminds me of my kids. Can't wait for more.

I love Rob Thomas & Disney World equally. Is that a bad thing? I think not. :)

Day 2
I woke up around 8:30am and Alexis woke up soon after and we woke up the boys. We sat and watched the weather channel to see if we are going to lose our home... I guess we will see, we saw on the news that 700 buses are heading toward to New Orleans (we knew it… we saw them yesterday)

We got up and started getting dressed and ready to head out for the day. We went to Denny’s to eat, then went to Wal-Mart for snacks and cokes for the week at pop… after on the way back to the hotel Jason said lets go to Disney .. I was like ok lets go!... remember we still have our season pass so we have unlimited days at Disney till Sept 16 , so we took the stuff into the hotel and got back into the car .. We still hadn’t told the kids we were heading to Disney today so when they saw the Disney buses they started freaking out...they were super happy.. we go to Magic kingdom and head in then a nice lady stops us and says we are leaving do you want our double stroller *score* I thanked the lady for giving us some extra magic..
Off we went to tomorrow land.
We ride the people mover
me and james

jason & Alexis

then Jason & James rode ...
space mountain
while Alexis & I did stitch,
and then we all rode the race cars,


then off to tea cups

The place was dead… the longest wait was 40 mins at peter pan so we headed over to splash mountain


here's our redneck photo of us on the ride ( a photo of a photo)


and then rode the train back to main street.
So we could head out to beach club to go to beaches and cream.

as you can see we are at the boardwalk not beach club.. we got a little lost on the way but it was fun getting lost at disney for the 1st time..lol
we finally make it to beaches and cream ,

and it was dead also we got a nice booth.

We order the kids
James got a hotdog

Alexis got a grill cheese

Jason & I shared an order of fries and a No Way Jose (Mmmmmm it was so good)


Then the kids got mouse ice-cream

This meal was great... and we will be back...
We paid out of pocket for this meal and it was so worth the $29.95

Then we walked around the resort

oh my gosh we love it there…


then we head back to downtown Disney then get back to the car and head out of Disney back to the hotel … we stayed the rest of the night just hanging in the hotel ..
while the boys played the ds games , Alexis & I had girl time. I did alexis and mine toes with mickey heads ...
sorry the photos didn't come out to good ...
my toes

Alexis toes

finally after watching more tv we head to bed ... tomorrow is the big day !!
Tomorrow we check into pop!!!


Day 3, will we get the room we want at pop?
