From Whoville to Disneyland - Velkommen to Solvang! update p. 7

Hello, all you trip report readers out there! Thanks for joining us on our trip filled with fun, family and food! Who are the "whos", you ask?
[IMG][/IMG]
Here I am, Whogirl'smom, with Whogirl, on the first leg of our flight.

I am Jamie, 41, the trip planner, Disney fanatic and picture taker of this trip. Olivia is 8, going into the 3rd grade, and still adores all things Disney!
[IMG][/IMG]
And here is Whogirl'sdad.

DH is Jim, 43, the hardworking wonderful husband/father, who makes all these trips possible. He has become a Disney-lover, almost as much as dd and I are. This was dd's first trip to Disneyland and our first in 10 years. My, how things have changed!

We are visiting my Aunt S. during this 10 day trip and will be seeing lots of interesting sights in SoCal, along with DL. So, buckle up, our flight is almost ready to take off!

We began our trip in East Tennessee, at our tiny little airport that only had one gate open on the morning of July 23rd, at the crack of way-too-early. (5:30 a.m.) We had an easy, quick flight to Atlanta, where we switched to our flight to Phoenix (hence to be known as the bowels of hell). Why this nickname, you ask? Well, it wasn't due to the heat, but we'll get to that soon enough.

Would you like to see how crazy we were to only do carry-on luggage?

In the meantime, a snack to tide you over till the next episode:

[IMG][/IMG]


Todd English fruit and cheese plate: smoked gouda, Havarti and Sage infused Derby paired with grapes, pecans, dried apricots and crackers. Loved the Havarti with the dried apricots. We had to get two of these.

Thanks for reading and I'll try to do updates at least 3 times a week!

Thanks for the breadcrumbs, Whomom! And where did that plastic container of cheesy goodness come from? Did you buy that at the airport? If so am I jealous ... the Stinktown International Airport doesn't sell anything like that as far as I know.

My bad--I should have provided that info . Todd English has evidently paired with Delta Airlines to offer this yummy little tray for only $6! The sage cheese was soooo good, even by itself. Our home airport didn't have anything open other than the vending machines and coffee machines that our business has out there!

Wow, the pimping works! (That sounds so wrong, doesn't it?)
