I have been reading! But I guess not very carefully....

I thought this was a NEW challenge.

A TWOFER is twice as great

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

Day 2: March 14, 2010

The alarm went off at 4 a.m., but like the night before, I was already up. Vacation is the only time I'll gladly get up that early! We got ready, packed up the car, and were on the road around 5:15 a.m.

We were so happy we got to Atlanta so early in the morning- there was hardly anyone on the road! We're used to the crazy driving around there, so we were happy to fly through there. It was a beautiful view going through Atlanta though. The sun was just coming up and there were about 8 planes or so coming closer to the airport for landing.

After we got past Atlanta and Macon, we stopped for gas and a bathroom break. I texted Heather (hlrababy) and told her we were in Georgia. She asked me to look at prices of my purse while we were there and I promised to let her know! And I'm sure I was talking to Kristen by then too. When we got back on the road after getting gas, we ran into road construction for 42 miles!

Finally, we made it into Florida around 10:35 a.m. We still could not believe how great of time we were making so far this trip! Soon, I was texting Kristen , Mom and Dad, and Sis that we were getting close and I was bouncing around in my seat.

And then the angels sang as we saw this :



Just a few minutes later, we were approaching Pop:



We found a parking spot in the check-in lot and headed to the front desk:







MeMom's gift shop:



We were the second ones in line at check-in. It still didn't feel real to us that we were finally there! Eventually, it was our turn and we were getting our room keys and map of where we were. Then...we were given our first surprise of the day: "Just Engaged" buttons! Dad had called and mentioned to them that we had gotten engaged! We put them on right away.

~Continued in next post~

Driving under the Disney arches at the start of the trip is always the BEST feeling in the whole entire world!

I love all the pictures of Pop - it makes me feel like I'm back there. And yay for check-in going fast... that's always a plus! How sweet of your dad to call and say yall had just become engaged!!

~Continued from previous~

Floating on air, we walked back to the car and just had to drive to the next parking lot (90's). We grabbed as much as we could and made our way to our building:



The building on the other side of our stairs:



Our stairs:



Sign for our floor:



And then we made it to our room:



The view from outside our door. Right on the other side of the trees way out there was the bus stop. We were SO close to it!:



So happy to be here!:





This little guy was waiting for us in our window:



We opened up the door and saw that we were in one of the refurbished rooms! :











Then, we made our way down to the bus stop for our first bus ride. Can you guess where we went?! :



It was super windy that day!:



Here you can see our pins good on Fiance:



The bus is here!:







~Up next:

MK for the rest of the day and some more surprises!

I can't even believe I missed your first 3 posts. What a terrible Disbuddy I am! I'll just go and hang my head.

That being said, I love it when travel goes well. You and your fiance made awesome time. I can't wait to read your impressions of POP.

Haha, don't feel bad!

Honestly, a lot of it has been the way we've changed what we eat. We watch what we're eating, reading the calories and what not, cutting back on the salt, snacking on healthy things instead, things like that.

Aw, I'm glad you got excited with me.

Of course you're going to get tons of hat pictures in July. I did manage to get a few this trip, but not enough!

We left the same day you arrived and I remember how windy it was. It made flying very interesting. I thought I was going to have a panic attack with all the turbulance.

Anyway... I'm glad you got started with your TR.... I love all the pictures and I'm looking forward to more.
