And here's the backround-

DH (who is called PODS) and I made a FABULOUS purchase this year- we added on some DVC points at BCV- which came along with a full year of 2008 banked points that needed to be used before June 2009. SUCH a dilemma!!! What to do...what to do...I know! Let's go to Vero beach for the weekend and follow it up with 4 nights at WDW during F&W WITHOUT our 3 loving sons!!! Well...that won't suck! Better yet, let's see if my DBF Lonnie and her DH, Mike, would be willing to meet us in Vero for that weekend. Turns out, they said YES!!! My cousin and her DH would stay with our kids, our friends would be sure to get our boys to all their baseball games, football games and practices, and choir practice (thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!!) so we were good to go!

A quick and calm flight (passing over HHI- one of the BEST places EVAAARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!)

And in less than 3 hours we were picking out our rental car and hitting the highway in Florida (by the way, i had reserved a car a couple of months before with the AP discount, but checked online a few days before leaving and was able to score a MUCH lower $ for a much bigger car! Gotta love thse last-minute Hot deals!). An hour and a half after that, we were pulling in to Disney's Vero Beach Resort, having made one pit stop for some neccessary items like vodka and wine and breakfast bagles and peanut butter ( the bear neccessities of life!). We were greeted by the friendliest, happiest CM on earth at the gate with a HUMONGOUS welcome home! We checked in at about 12:30 with yet ANOTHER super friendly CM, and guess what? Our OVIR was ready!! Here it is-

The fabulosity view-

And the room-

Hi, cute li'l fella!

Here I am on the balcony- can you tell I'm just a little bit happy about the view (and my 1st Visit pin!)?

Lonnie & Mike were still on the road, so Pods & I went down to the pool for some lunch at Bleachers Bar & Grill. I had some yummy crab cake sliders-

While DH had a Caribbean Cuban sandwich- which included pickles AND pineapple-

We liked that a whole lot better once the pineapple came off. Then we settled down by the pool to wait for our friends...

Up next- the girls hang by the pool with the BEST frozen drinks EVVVAAAAARRRR and the boys go stink it up on the golf course!
