Hi Guys!!!

We are here in Lorton Virginia waiting to get on the Auto train!!!! The car ride down wasn't bad at all. We got here in about 5 1/2 hours with only one stop for gas. We checked in at 10:30am and then went and got something to eat. I can honestly say that SO FAR this has been so much more relaxing then driving OR flying!!!! We shall see once on board. We get dinner on board and a breakfast... all included in the price. Our menu includes medallions of beef, talbot fish (sp), manicotti (sp) penne pasta with meatballs, or veggie lasagna. The kids can also order mac and cheese if they wish. I heard that the food is pretty good, so I will let you know.

Makenzie had a wonderful confirmation yesterday. I only wished that it was a bit warmer, but we still had a very nice day. We had lots of laughs like always!

Glad to hear that the walk went well. I saw the pictures on facebook.

Sandy, we re-sided the house. When we moved in over 14 yrs ago, Garry and I painted the house a light blue. We decided on Colonial Ivory with hunter green shutters. We also got new doors so the house looks brand new, at least on the outside! hehehe!

Well, gotta run. Getting ready to board the train! We will be posting our whole trip. We will be in disney from 14-28 and then Washington DC from 29 to the 1st. We decided to do Washington for the 2 days after, since we are so close and we have all the kids (including Anna Marie!!). It was funny, we didn't let the kids know she was able to go with us, so when we left the house, we said good bye to her and drove off. We got 2 blocks away and I said, opps I forgot my phone so we went back to the house and I ran in got my phone and then Anna Marie followed me out the door and said, what the heck, I'm coming!!! The kids were soooooooooooo excited. I had packed her clothes in suitcase when the kids weren't looking! BY THE WAY... only 2 big suitcases once again for the 6 of us. We do have 2 small carry ons for the train.. plus a small cooler and another bag of snacks... but... I'm good!

Will post more later!!
