We're all packed too...dog is at the kennel...just waiting for 7 am to head down to Detroit. Hopefully the roads are OK, the highway was closed for a couple of hours earlier today due to blowing snow.

12!!
DD's ready for bed (with a little help from benadryl!! no - she actually has a little head cold ... I - on the other hand - may be taking some benadryl myself later ... )

"Finished" my DHS touring plan ... more or less ... (well, that's as good as it's gonna get ...)

Off to Walgreens ... Hopefully the DD will be asleep when I get back ...

In 12 HOURS we will be sitting on the plane waiting for takeoff!! Had to run tonight to get medicine for a horrible sore throat. I did get the packing done for DD, DS and myself. DH is on his own. Everything is checked and double checked.

See you Tuesday at THE party! May we all arrive safe and well!

We're back!!

We got in at 1:15 am ... Worked out very well taking the late flight from MCO to ACY ...

Very nice trip - but I'm still working on a title for the forthcoming TR ... (while also thinking about our next trip ... )

"A Sore Back (me), Sore Feet (DW), and a Sore Attitude (DD - once a day ... )" .... or

"Touring WDW One Restroom at a Time" or

"Hi - We're the Dream Squad!!" or

"How Danielle Came to be Able to Identify Rhino Poop" or

...

Anyway, you get the idea ... (and I need a nap!!)

We have 160 Photopass photos, over 600 personal photos, and about 6 hours of video to go through ...

Also - we experienced some "WDW Magic" about 1/2 hour ago ... you won't believe this story ...

So stay on the edge of your seats - the TR will be coming soon!!
