Hey Laurie!

So glad to see you are doing better now. I was really happy to see you made it to the BBQ, and Company D. Company D was great wasn't it? LOL... and dangerous. Next time we will have to make it to Cafe Orleans! I was looking forward to some good chatting time with you. Not to mention some of those pomme freites!(sp?) YUM!

Anywhos, looks like your DH was a good shot in the arm for you. I hope you had a fabulous time with him.

Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Next trip I'll be more prepared to being away from my kids....this was the first time & it really affected me. I enjoyed meeting everyone & sorry I missed some of the things but thankful for the time I did have. Melody you are just one of the sweetest ladies I've met & I'm thrilled to say I know you!!!!

How is that possible when they just finished the meds?? I've had a baby glued to my lap almost all day.....sometimes both!!

How is it those girls managed a PTPI without even going on the trip? I hope they are feeling better soon!

Looking forward to reading the report of a first time Diva as I hopefully will be in your shoes next year.

I think the twins got sick because they are unable to express feelings & I'm sure were very confused with our absence. Colds & allergies seem to be non-stop in this house.......so they probably just slept to deal with what they could't understand. They spent most of the day on me, but did venture off & play some.....so hopefully today will be even better for them!

Ok ladies & gentlemen, it's time to take your seats, buckle up, hold on cause here we goooooooooooooo!

Wednesday night (March 2), I had all my bags packed & ready to go & went to bed around 9pm. I tossed & turned & finally got to sleep around 11:30. My alarm went off at 3:45am......now any other time, this would have been very annoying......but today, I jumped right out of bed, ran thru a quick shower, put my bags in the car & we were off to the Portland Airport. The drive is about an hour from our home. Mike drove me to the curbside drop off area & I handed my bags over to attendant, said goodbye to hubby & made my way inside the airport.

So my biggest worry was getting thru security with out being pulled aside or heaven forbid a full body patdown......I would have freaked out & called Mike to come get me........seriously!! Approached the security, put my stuff in the tubs, waited to be asked to walk thru the metal detector & picked up my stuff on the other side.......WAHOO.......I made it thru!!

Made my way to gate C-4 for the Alaska Airlines trip to Santa Ana, leaving at 7:05am.





I waited & watched for Carol to show up.....figured she'd either have the lime green colored shirt on or something that had Disney on it to help me spot her right away. Don't remember exactly what time she got there, but probably around 6am. We waited for them to call us to board. I had never met Carol, so it gave us time to get to know one another as we waited. We boarded the plane, only to find out that someone was in our seats. We waved to the flight attendant who was trying to figure out where the other 2 ladies were supposed to be seated. They had been pre-boarding, as one of the ladies was in a wheelchair. So we were asked to step to the back of the plane to allow the other guests to get to their seats.



Come to find out, they were supposed to be seated on the other side, but 2 gals traveling together saw the 2 seats & sat down on the other side together.....even though their tickets had them in different rows, not together. So they were asked to go to their seats & Carol & I took the same row, same seats.....just on the other side of the plane. (couldn't see the point in having the 2 ladies pre-boarded to get up & change sides). Whew.....disaster averted (I had mentioned to the flight attendant my fear of flying & told her, Carol & I would HAVE to sit together) lol

So after sitting, the plane started backing out & the rain started.....goodbye rainy Oregon!!



Here are pics from above the clouds:












Found it really cool to see the mountains thru the top of the clouds!!









Landing at John Wayne Airport in Santa Ana.......We Made It!!!! Flight was supposed to land at 9:29am but think we got there just a few minutes early....yay for us!





I will say, flying wasn't so bad......the landing was probably the worse & it really wasn't a big deal........I could get used to this getting to Disneyland in 2 1/2 hours vs 2 days of driving stuff......lol

Yay, you started your trip

Glad they figured out the seats on the plane

Great pics of the scenery outside the plan. I always mean to do that, but end up checking my camera and forgetting about it

Hope your twins are feeling better soon
