Over the river and through the FUN!

We are back and recuperated enough to start reliving our wonderful Thanksgiving vacation. You know there will be plenty of pictures since MeMom was there.

Monday John and I picked up the rental van on our lunch break. I took it since I would get off work first and was headed straight home with the plan to be loaded and ready to pull out when he pulled in the drive. I got off a little early and headed straight home. MeMom was in the driveway waiting. When I hit the driveway I realized I didn't have keys to the house since John was driving my car with my keys. MeMom put her stuff in and then she joined Brooklynn and I sitting in the van until John got home. She kept trying to take Brooklynn's picture but she wouldn't stand still. finally she told her to hold her breath and apparently my daughter has nostrils on the top of her head because these are the two pictures we got...

John finally made it home and we quickly loaded the car and took a quick potty break and then hit the road about 6:30.

We stopped at Wendy's for dinner and then went full steam ahead to Perry, GA. Brooklynn kept saying she was not going to Perry she was going to Disney World.

We arrived in Perry around 1:00 am and attempted to get some sleep. We were up and ready for our free breakfast at 6:00.

Brooklynn took a picture with the little jockey at the front of the restaurant.

I'm going to let MeMom finish our start because Brooklynn is throwing a fit in the middle of the library right now and I need to go take care of it.

Have a great day everybody!

Yay I get to get in on the beginning of the TR. Love it so far. Great pictures as always. Brooklynn holding the top of her head was my favorite so far. You're almost there! Anxiously awaiting the next instalment.

Boy, you have a blurry picture-taker. I hope it gets better!

In the past, when I've had the occasion to tell someone to hold their breath, like maybe in teaching someone to swim, they did not immediately put their hand to their head. Does Brooklynn think she is a dolphin? Or perhaps a saltwater crocodile?

We kept telling John that we hadn't seen anything from Perry, GA to the Florida state line by the light of day, because we always get there late and leave before the sun is up. We took pity on him and stayed long enough so he could sleep more and have breakfast. The Florida Welcome Center was actually open when we went through, so we got our free juice. We've gotten used to stopping for a potty break and a picture of the Welcome to Florida sign before the sun comes up.

Anyway, I'll be back later to put up some blurry and hopefully non-blurry pictures, because I think my trip was similar to yours.

By the way, you have a cute kid there. Her hair's kinda wild, but she's still pretty cute.

I might have been at Target when you started the report buying aforementioned cute kid with wild hair a My Little Pony. She had such a good time with them at Disney World that I thought she needed to have one out here in the real world. Only this one doesn't come with a big round table filled with parts, which you might apppreciate when it comes to clean-up time.

I hope everyone is having a good Saturday - probably shopping and pre-Christmas partying and house decorating and such. I know of at least one of you who might be spending part of the day packing to go on a Disney trip. Whatever you are doing, hope it's fun!

Yay, new report! I am so glad that you decided to keep it up.

We just got back from getting our Christmas tree...a little later on I am going to Home Depot to get a very small, possibly Charlie Brown-esque tree for my room, and I might as well grab a couple of LGMH while I am there.

Looking forward to more

I'm here, made it on the first page! If I wasn't out shopping I may have beaten vandyfan.

Nice to hear from you BrooklynnsMommy. Stay strong, being a mom is not always so fun.

Everything is off to a good start, I've always wanted a van for travelling. I think I would love the extra space. (for shopping)

Free breakfast

I can't wait to cross into Florida and stop in for some juice. I also get some Disney brochures, gets me excitted. My kids think I'm nutz to get so happy about the Welcome Center.

I'm off to work my 6th shift this week, but I will smile today because of you.

So excited to see what adventures this report entails! Fun fun fun... I love the idea of a girls trip next fall/winter! I hope someday to do that at least for a day or two with my mom and girls.

My little Ponies are big in our house right now... they are great friends with our princesses!
