Maybe we can gang up on her and bully her into doing a report.

I totally agree that the Milwaukee airport is lacking in palatable food choices. The D concourse is much much better than the C, but neither are worth writing home about.

At least we have a recombobulation center

I just hate the hurry up and wait of travel days, glad you made it through and can enjoy your trip!

Your nephew is ADORABLE!! Too funny about him hugging the wrong guy. Most Dads at Disney, it wouldn't even phase them, of course he's got to find a childless guy to hug

For me, there is nothing better than a ride on the TTA the first night! It's so Disney!

Yay for booking your parents for their anniversary! It is so strange that Disney becomes a low-cost option, but with cheap flights, DVC and Annual passes, it really is! We have run into that often.

Can't wait to read more
Uh oh, I'm gonna have to check that stupid link out then.

You are right. Crappy food choices aside, you're right at least we have that darn recombobulation center. If I ever get discombobulated, at least I know I can be recombobulated at the airport.

Leave it to my nephew to hug the one guy at Disney that's not a dad.

I figured you'd understand about the low cost option side! You're right, with DVC and annuals, you really can't go wrong.

Day 1 - Saturday 7/9/2011 That sundae is bigger then my head!

I woke up around 8am this morning. I had hoped to sleep a little longer, but it just wasn't in the cards for me. Jason and Joaquin were still sound asleep at that time. I figured I would be nice (everyone say awwwww), and let them sleep a little longer. So, I texted Mom to see if she was up.

True to form, she was. I left a note and hopped next door to hang out for a while. I wasn't over there too long though before Jason called. Jason apparently forgot to grab chonies for Joaquin out of the luggage in the car, so I needed to run down and get some.

When mom and I got back, Joaquin was just coming out of the bathtub so fresh and so clean. He was very happy to see this.

Little side note. Joaquin sneezes in a very exaggerated manner. I now know where he gets this from. Just watch Captain Hook sneeze on Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Yup. That's how Joaquin sneezes.

So he sneezes and I start cracking up, because I'm afraid he's going to wake up the world. Fortunately, it wasn't that early.

We were ready to go by about 9:45am. We decided to head straight over to the Beach Club. We figured we would chill out while waiting for Chris, Sara, and Riley to arrive for our lunch at Beaches and Cream. We all grabbed something from the Beach Club marketplace to drink while we waited for them to text that they had gotten there.

Joaquin enjoying his juice



Talking to mommy on the phone.



Oh Beach Club, I will be back in October.



We got a text letting us know that they were just pulling into the parking lot, so we moved into the lobby to wait. Joaquin found a map at the table in the lobby, so he made quick work of dissecting that.



So serious, right?



Everyone else showed up, and Riley was super excited when she saw us. Joaquin just started chatting her up right away. They were talking about what they would be doing at the Magic Kingdom when they got there.





We headed over to Beaches and Cream so we could wait to get in for the day. There were only two other families waiting to get in.

We made it in very quickly after that and were seated at two tables next to each other.

Love the ambience here.



Don't let that innocent face fool you.....





Fast friends, these two.



What are you gonna eat?



My table



Me. Lovely, right?



Think it runs in the family?



Wicket had strict orders to behave. Otherwise, he would be in time out!



Everybody got cheeseburgers, and the kiddos both got hot dogs. Please note, a theme on this trip is that Riley is a picky eater. Very picky. Joaquin? Human garbage disposal. A true study in opposites.



My burger



Wicket passed out, because he was bowled over by the size of the burger!



Continued in next post:

Day 1 - Saturday 7/9/2011 That sundae is bigger then my head! cont.

Wicket arose from his fainting spell and promptly hopped on mom's shoulder.



Of course, Joaquin couldn't just let Wicket rest....



Somehow the kids got a hold of a random balloon and were messing around with it.



But before things could get too out of hand, I put Wicket in his rightful place......as a balloon holder.



Then it was time for the sundaes to come out.

Joaquin's



Mom and I shared a No Way Jose



Could you tell I was excited?



Riley's sundae.



I think Joaquin was enjoying his too.



And Riley



Dad and Jason shared a No Way Jose too, and Chris and Sara shared a brownie sundae. Everyone was very happy with the meal overall. This meal was my treat to everyone, and I think it was a great way to start the trip for us.

Up next: Check-in at Bay Lake Tower and off we go!
