We tried not to let her eat in the car if we were going to be in it for an extended time.... and we did have a few scares though when she said she felt sick and I had to take her to the bathroom or we had to pull over. We didn't take any chances after 2 times of throwing up in her carseat!
I am soo glad she didn't get sick anymore! She may just suffer from carsickness. I totally don't blame you for stopping everytime she cried "wolf".

(Thank you for appeasing us readers. )

Hi there! I am joining the fun! I have a toddler too, so I love reading trip reports from other families with young children.

I am so sorry your dd got sick! I live in fear of a carsick incident. Glad she was feeling better by the time you arrived.

I hope you had fun in Pensacola, I went to grad school down there and just loved it. It was such a neat town and has such an incredible beach.

I'm sorry that she got sick! Well at least it was just those 2 times- maybe from all of the excitement and change? That sometimes happens to my DS! OOOO I can't wait for more, maybe even Disney and pictures!

I'm here, too! Great start. I am excited to read more. Your daughters are adorable.

Sorry to hear your daughter got sick. That is the worst on road trips. Good thing there was laundry at the hotel. At least she was not sick the entire time!

Awesome! You're the reason I'm doing this TR! DIS helped me SOOO much, but I found there weren't a ton of TRs that included toddlers and the trip is definitely different taking toddlers than it is solo, just adults or even with older kids. I hope you get some good ideas/tips from my report

this update is broken up into 2 posts because I like pictures


So, when I left off we were in Pensacola and were headed to Panama City for the day the next day for a family reunion. We woke up bright and early at 6:30 our time… we have 2 little alarms clocks named Alexis and Kaitlyn We ate the free breakfast at the hotel and were on the road a little after 8:30.
We spent the day with my family, the girls had a great time playing with their cousins!

After the reunion we drove to Tallahassee. I lived in Tallahassee when I was little, so I was really excited to learn that the hotel we “won” on Priceline was right down the road from my favorite restaurant! So we ate there for dinner ! They have a little arcade that the girls played in waiting for our food.


And they have amazing wings… the picture is terrible, but I love the wings so much, I’m posting it anyway.

If you’re ever in Tallahasse, Fl make sure to stop by Barnaby’s! It’s my favorite!!!
We spent that night at a La Quinta, we rigged up a little “curtain” out of a comforter using a closet and a lamp to give Kaitlyn her own little nook where we set up her pack and play.

That night she slept a lot better! Awesome! The next day we drove all the way down to Orlando. We spent that night with my aunt and uncle. The original plan was to spend the next 2 nights (this is Sunday/Monday if anyone is counting) at my cousin’s house, but her little boy was sick and starting some antibiotics, so we gave him a day to be on antibiotics first.
Sunday was spent at my aunt and uncles. We also had dinner at Friendly’s with my friend who lives in the area who spent the day with her family at Sea World.
And then it was Monday! We packed up (again! We spent the night at 4 different places before we finally made it to Disney world… I do NOT recommend that, get in 1 place and stay there!) and headed to Downtown Disney!
On the way I took a pic of my Disney toes

finally... a Disney post!

First we checked out the legos. I didn’t even know they had new ones, so I was surprised to see ones I hadn’t seen on other TRs!




Alexis saw some Princesses and wanted her picture with them



We spent a lot of time in the World of Disney store… man that place is big! Alexis wanted everything she saw. I let her pick out a princess Minnie (I was hoping she would pick that one!) and some ears. She chose Minnie Mouse ears

She loved these Goofy ears and tried them on it every store that had them over the course of our trip. I just couldn’t bring myself to pay $25 for them though

Andrew walked around with Kaitlyn while I shopped with Alexis. Kaitlyn just wanted to walk around out of the stroller and didn’t care much about shopping…

Alexis also discovered the pressed penny machines. Another little girl was doing it and she wanted to too. I don’t really think she knew what it was before she did one. We did about 5-6 during our vacation. We only did it if she saw it… I didn’t point any out

We spent the whole morning/afternoon at DTD… really fun place! Lots of great picture opportunities too!


We ate lunch at Earl of Sandwich… I had been looking forward to this sandwich for a long time!
I had the Original- fresh roasted beef, cheddar and creamy horseradish sauce ($5.99), chips (I think $1.99?) and a soda

Andrew had the Earl’s Club-roast turkey, smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce and roma tomato and sandwich sauce ($5.99), potato salad ($1.99 I think) and a soda


The girls shared a pb&j ($3.99), grapes ($1.99) and we bought each of them a milk


Today was OOP, so we didn’t get dessert. I thought everything was good. I wasn’t feeling well, but the sandwich was still yummy. I didn’t eat my chips though, I saved them for later and the girls ate them as a snack a few days later. Andrew thought his sandwich was really good, he liked it better than mine. I liked them both about the same. They were both really good. We might try Wolfgang Puck Express next time we go, just to be different, but it was REALLY good! I definitely recommend it!
After lunch we rode the rides. They were $2 for each child riding. The carousel didn’t charge for 1 adult per child riding. So we paid $4 for the carousel and $4 for the train.


Lastly, even though I wasn’t feeling so hot, we had to stop by Goofy’s Candy Company! Alexis wanted to make her own treat too after she saw mine being made. She had marshmallows, covered in milk chocolate and mini m&ms, drizzled in white chocolate. I made a cookie with chocolate middle (it’s like a giant oreo, and mine was chocolate on the inside), covered in milk chocolate and butterfinger, drizzled in white chocolate. I can’t believe I forgot to get pictures of these treats… they were so pretty! Alexis barely made a dent in hers, but she enjoyed what she had. Mine was good too, but I think I would try something different next time, the cream in the middle of the cookie was a little much. I ate mine that night when my stomach had settled.
I snapped this picture while they were making my treat.

After DTD, we spent the rest of the day with my cousin and her IL’s. They were nice enough to invite us to their house for a cookout. We swam for a little while and the cousins (2nd cousins I guess) played. This is them playing in the rain

And eating dinner at the “kids table”


Up next…. Disney World!!!!!!!

Hi!! We have a 2yo daughter so I can relate to a lot of your toddler tales!! I am curious to see how it all goes because she will be three next year when we go (she went at 9 mos old but we took a year off due to me working on my Masters)

I know what you mean about hotels with toddlers!! LOL!!

Can't wait to see more Disney and read more toddler tales...the girls are cuties!! I cannot imagine how much work it is to have two of them!!!

Very creative with the comforter curtain! Glad it worked!

The Downtown Disney pictures are great! I LOVE the 7 dwarfs legos. So cute! I have never seen them before either.

) I was depressed that I had no ticker, so I figured out an estimated date and got one! We want to go back when they're doing the christmas party, but still in November so it's not really cold yet and the crowds are a little lower. So, I just guessed I'll get a new one after we actually book the trip

My favorite was the woody/buzz on the rocket. They're little hands look like lego people's hand... too cute!
