Subbing! I can't wait to hear more.

Very impressed at the amount of luggage that you were able to get in the car.

If you live to be a 100, I hope to live to be 100 minus 1 day. So I never have to live without you.

So here are our similarities so far, all apple devices for us (itouch,iphone,ipad!), fully but amazingly packed van, and starbucks double shot and frap!

You guys had much less of a drive than us, but i would not want to do it with a baby again!

looking forward to hearing about your first day in the park... if you made it that is!

Great start!

what is up with the teeny tiny hotel pillows lately?! I don't know if it's a new trend or I've just gotten pickier about my pillows...I feel like I never used to encounter them, but now they're everywhere!

Does chick-fil-A do a plain, unseasoned chicken breast cut up, or is it the same as the chargrilled sandwich? We've tried ordering those without the bun, but my oldest doesn't like the seasoning on them.

ETA: and I was cracking up about the "chenille sticks." I've never heard that before!

I love how much fun my kids are at this age. Perfect age for WDW!

Thanks. I thought it was pretty awesome, too. Haha! Seriously, though, my MIL was going to have to hold her luggage in her lap if it didn't fit, and being late getting to our house while packing was happening was risky on her part!

That doesn't shock me at all! You're like the Yankee version of me, and I think we're pretty great!

I do not know. Is it the fascination with all things "cute" in today's society? Like the mini Coke bottles and the little cookies that are bite-sized?!? Does anybody even LIKE those things? NO! Stupid. There were a million of those pillows on the bed, but at least it was "cute!"
As for the chicken, I'm not sure. Brynn likes spiced things, so we've only ever gotten it with spices. And, yes, it's the same breast from the chargrilled sandwich. I have to agree--I don't really enjoy the spices on it, but she thinks it's great.
True story about those chenille sticks. When I was teaching, I once got the stink-eye for saying I needed to put pipe cleaners on my order form. Add that to the list of things that frustrated me about teaching...

Thanks!! Last year my girls were 2 and 4 on the trip. Such magical ages! I'm sure you'll have a blast!

Great update!

Did you really mean 5 minutes, or five hours before you got to Disney?

Five MINUTES! We stayed just outside the gates on Friday night. We weren't sure how far we'd make it that night, as three kids in a van could go really well or really...not, so we didn't make a reservation anywhere in case we had to stop a few hours into the drive. Luckily, our kids were perfect angels and real troopers up until a few minutes from WDW, so we didn't stop until we arrived! Last year we tried checking in on a Friday and didn't get any of our requests because most people check out on Saturday and we were left with slim pickings, so we didn't want to check into Pop Century until Saturday. You'll see tomorrow if this logic worked or not. I must say, waking up on Saturday morning and not having a long drive was wonderful!

We really couldn't have asked for a better travel day, especially considering we started in the middle of the day and the kids missed their naps! I agree, I was kind of at the point of tears myself and I felt so sorry for him. He was keeping with our tradition, though--each year one kid melts down within a few miles of WDW--and we wouldn't want to break tradition!
