Great start! Can't wait to hear about arriving at Disney! I can't imagine how it must have felt.

We just drove from SC to MI and I refused to drive in the moutains because of all of those crazy drives! It just amazes me sometimes how people drive and behave.

Ok...waiting for more updates

Just kidding...I do NOT want you to rush through this TR. We want all the details and I know that takes some time. Heck, I am one to talk, I only had one day left on my one and only TR and it is still not completed. (So I guess, I better be quite. Hahaahhahaha)

Hugs to ya my friend!!!!
LOL! You know you could still finish that last day!

We were in building 5, which is near hippy dippy, but no lights. You would have known my window, there were pictures of Levi in it!

On the road we were, but not for long! Matt decided it was time to eat, AGAIN! But McDonalds, Subway, or Arby's weren't going to cut it. No, he wanted Cracker Barrel! So much for catching up with Farrah and Dane!

While we waited on our food, Isabelle colored and played.

Here is Isabelle with Matt being silly!

And one somewhat normal! LOL!

I opted for a breakfast meal, as did Matt, Isabelle had a veggie plate. I didn't eat my eggs, but Matt had no problem finishing them off for me!

very impulsive, which doesn’t bode well for our credit cards!

What lovely pics of Matt & Isabelle.

I bet you were desperate to get on the road!

Finally!!!!!

We sure had a lot of driving to do! Timmy texted me a few times to see where we were and Tanya called. We were trying, but Disney wonldn't come fast enough! Then, it started to rain, which slowed us down more, but we were getting closer!

We finally exited to Parkway, and the WDW gates gleamed in the near distance! I was so giddy, but Isabelle was napping, so she was less than interested. We didn't get a photo of the gate, b/c of the rain.

I navigated Matt through WDW and soon we were pulling into Pop Century!


Then I got us all checked in, but before the CM handed us our KTTW cards, she disappeared. We stood for about 3 minutes, wondering where she had gone off to.



She reappeared, with something rather LARGE in her hands and sat it next to Isabelle!


Here we all are with the basket!


---This would be a good time to mention (for BillWendy) that Matt LOVED his Eeyore shirt, but has gained so much muscle over the summer that he can no longer squeeze into a Medium. In fact, he complained most of the trip about the Larges I bought him!

We made it to our room with most of our luggage and our huge basket of goodies! Then I let Isabelle dive in!







Now, pictures just don't do this basket justice! This basket was sent by MANY disboarders. I can't begin to tell each of you what this meant to us to get such a welcoming surprise! Thank you! And I left my list of names at home, but there were many who took part in this gesture! Thank you! We bragged about your generosity and that of the boutiquers all week long!

Yes I was Claire! I really wanted to get there about the same time as Dane and Farrah.

After trying to reload the basket (we pulled out the journal, passport, stuffed animals, and autograph book right away, then picked through it each day for new goodies!) we decided to get ready for DTD and dinner at Raglan Road.

We were nearly ready when we had a knock on our door. Had a diser located me already? Nope, it was luggage services delivering a box! This brown nondescript box had been mailed ahead by newtodis and was packed full of more goodies!!!! Before he left, the CM conferred Isabelle's name. Not sure why???

Thanks Lynn! Those little milk boxes were awesome! We still have quite a few things left! And I love the scrapbook, thank you. I have to admit, though, that at first I alny flipped through the first few pages, as time was of the essence. Last night, however, I unpacked it a reached the back pages and immediatlt teared up, heck I'm tearing up now thinking about it. In the back she put the sweetest dedication to Levi. I'll get a picture of it and hopefully have it for you tomorrow.







It wasn't 10 min. later and another knock came. The same CM brought a red envelope for Isabelle. In it was a lovely letter that had me crying even more form yet another diser.
