Thanks for reading!


We're baacckkkkkkk! It was such a great trip, but it went by so fast (as they always do) . We can't complain though, because we were definitely a part of the Year of a Million Dreams! I will be starting the trip report once all of the pictures are uploaded!

MONDAY MAY 19 / TUESDAY MAY 20

My vacation began at 5:00 PM on Monday, May 19 – the second I got out of work! I had a couple of errands to run, then I finished up my packing, said goodbye to the puppy , and headed over to Justin’s house. He was sitting at the outdoor fire pit with his brother and cousin and it was waaaayy too chilly out there for me so I stayed in and watched a few episodes of The Office and 30 Rock. I figured after 3 or so episodes I would be sleepy but no such luck. I was too excited to sleep! I dozed off around 11. I woke up, convinced that it was time to get up, but when I looked at the clock it was only 12:30! I eventually managed to fall back asleep …

…until my 3:30 AM wake up call. Everyone was already up and dressed so I got ready as well. We were out the door by about 4:15 AM and after a quick ride to the airport we were there – after a short wait (we were there before the Southwest check-in counter even opened!) we were sitting at the gate.

Southwest Airlines is in the process of implementing a new boarding program. Instead of being assigned only a letter (A, B, or C) you are assigned a letter and number (A 1 – 60, etc). They board A 1-15, then A 16-30 and so on. This caused a little confusion (along with their new rules about pre-boarding eligibility) so the plane took off a bit late. It was scheduled to take off at 6:35 AM and was about 10-15 minutes late – no biggie.



The flight was pretty uneventful – a little bumpy at times but nothing too bad. Shortly after taking off we had a gorgeous view of the sun shining over the water – this picture doesn’t even do a justice:



We landed and got lost going to the Magical Express counter. After a little help from airport staff we were in line and checked in. We didn’t have to wait very long for our bus – only about 5-10 minutes or so – and POP Century was going to be the first stop. We knew we were getting close when we saw this:




Check-in at POP was a breeze since it was only around 11:00 AM. Our rooms were even ready! Unfortunately we forgot a suitcase on the ME bus (we lost the ME tag and had to pick it up at baggage claim ourselves). Justin’s parents had to speak with the cast members at the ME desk at POP and make a few phone calls to track it down. I decided to hula hoop to pass the time:



Once the suitcase was returned we dropped off some stuff at the room and we had lunch at Everything POP – the first of many chicken finger baskets!

I won’t bore you with the details of our trip to Wal-Mart and getting lost in Celebration – once Justin finally uploads the pictures (HINT HINT) I will write up the next section .

You're off to a great start (other than forgetting the bag on the bus). Can't wait for more.

Congratulations on your graduation!! Can't wait to read more about your report. We are staying at POP for the first time in October so it will be great to get your take on the resort.
