have spoken to DH he says checkout. I did sleep with the phone and had a chair behind the door just annoyed with self as I did not like the area on the first night we are just waiting for some more movement around the hotel to leave. I can't get into the hotel we stayed at last year so I am not sure where to stay will wait till we get back to our friends to work that out.

stayed at our friends had a great sleep
Was bring a dish day we had the most yummiest chicken dumpling soup I have ever had, we cooked pies and sausage rolls which they think taste like meatloaf. They all Tim Tams.
The kids have spending time swimming and playing basketball with their friends.
Last night I bought the rest of our 14 day passes, our character meal vouchers or DL and our friends 4 day passes they will then give me cash
Today we hit the Space centre
I cant believe we have already been here a week.

I'm loving reading along - sounds like a great trip (besides the incident) so far!

Edited to fix autocorrect!

The space centre was great we did all the new things we were there 6 hours and it was not long enough the boys rode the simulator which they said was like riding star tours i the way they compare everything to Disney the girls were excited that some real astronauts in training to them at the training centre We had jack in the box for breakfast and left overs for tea the kids went swimming at the neighbours and they are having a great time not rushing around.
I got another $500 Disney gift voucher today so 1 more to go but I am sure Andona is buying money there's nearly 2 cents difference in the $
Today I filled the: I had a $2 a gallon off from buying the gift cards. You will all be happy to know it cost me a whopping $21.97 to fill up
Spoke to DH before he is very happy to only have 1 week to go and now he is on nights so hopefully he will be adjusted when he arrives
3 and half hours till I can book the Fantasmic dessert package

I'm all caught up! Its sounds like you're having a lovely time so far minus the car incident.

WOohoo for the petrol price!!!! It just makes it irritated about the prices at home. They hike it up straight away when petrol prices go up but take 2 weeks to pass on any drops in petrol by which time prices have gone up again...grrr

And hurray for booking the dessert package!

Really enjoying your TR.

we're planning to visit Kemah Boardwalk when we're staying down near the Space Center in Houston. It sounds like your day at the Space Center was a great success too

Where did you get your discount voucher for your petrol? With 7,500 km of roads to cover we'll be looking to save money on petrol any way we can!

Looking forward to the next post

Make sure you allow at least a full day for the space centre

The fuel discount, I have been buying gift cards at Kroger you get 2 points for every $ so each $500 gift card I have bought has given me a $1 a gallon off fuel. I originally was only buying the gift cards to lock in the $ that your not thinkng about
If you go on gas buddy you can route our trip and it will give you an approx price for your trip.

I'm confused where you are as, when you refer to The Space Center, I presume you mean Kennedy Space Centre at Cape Canaveral. Is there another one somewhere else?
