4 Day mini trip and some serious thinking...
Well we just got back two days ago and I was not planning on starting this TR until Monday, but seeing as I am not at work today because of major back issues I figured I could start it now.
First I will start with the intros since I can't find the link to the PTR.
This is Keira she is Three years old and this is her third trip to the world. so far she is an only child so she likes to think she can have anything she wants. Well lets face it since she is the only one she does get a lot of what she wants but not in the spoiled brat type of way.
Next up is Matt he is 24 years old. He is actually from NY but moved sown here to FL about a year before we met three and a half years ago. Funny thing is he found my mom on Facebook just looking for some people in this area to talk to. Well long story short my mom introduced us and we have been together ever since. He does not like to admit that he likes going to Disney world but insists we take our vacations there because that's where I want to go. But the moment we hit world drive he starts getting all excited like a little kid again. In fact I think he gets more excited to see the welcome signs then I do!!!
Sorry I do not have a good picture of just him on my computer so this one of him and Steve Harvey at AKL last year will have to do.
Then there is me. I will be the one letting you know all the fun we had on our mini trip. I am 26 Years old. I have lived in FL all my life except for two years when we moved to MS because of health issues with my mom. In the 24 years of living the FL I only went to Disney once as a child and now three times since I have had a child of my own. I hate my picture being taken and I am usually the one taking the pictures so you wont see me much. But this is me....
Matt stole my camera from me and I was not expecting him to take my picture..
So this trip was planned very fast and was supposed to happen about two weeks before we did but I was not able to get the time off of work so we just rescheduled. So i started all of the planning for reservations and everything and before I knew it we were two days away from out trip.
For some reason when I sent my alarm to get up the morning of our trip I got confused and set it for 3 A.M. even tho that is the time I wanted to be on the road. So we started off out trip a half hour later then I wanted to but no big deal seeing as we already had everything in the car ready to go except our phone chargers. Now it is only about a two and a half hour to three hour drive for us depending on traffic but I did not want to be late so we always leave around 3. Before we could start our long journey we stopped to get some gas and coffee then we were on the road.
Every other time we have went we just leave Keira in her pjs and she sleeps the whole way so does Matt. For me it is a much more peaceful ride that way but things did not go as planned and Keira was wide awake as was Matt. So for three hours I heard mom mom mom mommy were we goin and the endless amount of radio station changing or Matts CD playing the same three songs over and over and over again. So after stopping off at a rest area right before we got on I-4 we were almost there and I was thrilled to be getting out of that car!!! We arrived at out home for the next few days at about six thirty and were told our room was already prepared for us which was a big surprise. We stayed at pop and were placed in the 60's building and if you have ever been there you know its ALL the way in the back but we figured while we were there and we were still early we should go ahead and take a look at our room. We found it with no issues and got all settled in but I completely forgot to take pictures of it. We did not have the mickey head towel on out bed so I was a little sad but oh well I will live. Pop served its purpose as a place to sleep but if we went there on our big trip I don't know if I could handle it. Every day we walked out our door we were mobbed by an angry swarm of mosquitoes. Also the ac only went down to 68. Ok enough of my complaining now where was I. OH yeah so we set up our room and unpacked all of Keira's stuffed animals that she had to bring along but her all time favorite one is named Allie. She made Allie about three months ago at build a bear and has had to take Allie with everywhere. Usually I think things through more thoroughly but this time my brain failed me and she seen Allie right when we were leaving our room I tried to distract her seeing as I did not want to take the risk of Allie getting lost at the park so after the long walk back to the car she was still crying that she wanted Allie I know i'm a mean mom for not letting her take it but I know if she got lost it would be a lot worse in the long run so I continued to drive to our first park Hollywood studios. Did she stop crying and asking for Allie??? Did we have to turn around and go get her beloved stuffed bear?? the answer is in the next post.
