Glad to hear you are feeling better, coming home and being sick on top of that is no fun, that's for sure.

I've read all your disney reports and loved reading them, though for the most part they were long finished when I got to them. This time I'm really excited to read along while you are writing your TR! I can't wait to hear all about your long awaited family trip and hope it was all you were wishing for! Sounds like it's gonna be interesting and I'm anxious to see the pic and hear how the kids reacted to the big surprise!
Btw, I love your little bouncy Santa Mickey thing, so cute!

Our adventure begins…

Early Tuesday November 3rd, I was getting ready to take luggage out to the van, all 5 pieces of luggage, including a battery charger for the wheelchair, Hannah’s dresses and things I had gotten the kids. I went into the bedroom to make sure I had gotten everything and came back to see this:



A very annoyed Ace NOT liking the luggage being out. He had to investigate:



I tried to get him to look at me but got these instead:







I gave up on that and took things out to the van. All too quickly Ace was with the boarder and we were on our way to pick up the rest of the family. They came out with NINE yes 9 pieces of luggage including carryon’s. Thank goodness we were flying SouthWest.





That is not all the luggage that ended up around Bill. Then we had to pile people into the van:



The kids were excitedly talking about the cabin and playing pool, seeing mountains, and maybe getting in the hot tub. Abbey and I looked at each other and smiled. We all buckled up and were on our way.

Hannah hammed it up in the back, while Christian played a video game:



After two potty stops we were in Nashville. We got our room key to a double queen suite and hopped in the elevator. The first of many “I want to push the button” conversations took place. Later in the trip I solved that issue by saying I was the elevator button pusher!!



We dropped off some luggage, as you can tell Abbey was suffering from Disney-nonsleepbeforethetripitis:



We got her up and got everyone’s order for Jack in the Box and Josh and I went to pick it up. We ate and told the kids I had something on the computer I wanted them to watch. We explained it had to do with the trip and I would be reading it to them, but they had to be quiet until the end so Hannah would understand what was going on. They both said they were ready to watch.

For those of you that didn't see the slideshow I made or if anyone wants to see it again, here it is:



Next installment… The video revealed to the kids (like I would give up the surprise already)

I am subbing to your TR. After finding them recently I read all of your other trip reports and read them all. I couldn't get enough. Ace cracks me up! I get exactly the same look and behavior from my dog, Nanook, whenever I leave on vacation. None of my pets are fans of luggage!
