What a crazy beginning to your trip!! I'm so glad you were still able to go to Disney, and that your son had such a Disney attitude about it. Can't wait to read more.

Reading the start of your report was very moving. I know it's a given to do anything, at all costs, to help our families when the need us but the strength to actually do it - how unreal?!?! Does that make sense? It's like "how did I do that" but just goes to show, we're not alone...

The Grand Flo was just the perfect place to arrive... from a hellacious (sp?) start to heaven on earth

Can't wait to read the rest. Wonderful to know you and your family are safe.

Joining in on the next great Tim and Lesley adventure at WDW. It wonderful that you were able to win two free nights at the Grand Floridian, it is so beautiful. DH and I stand there for our 5th anniversary the year after it opened. It is still one of my favorite resorts to visit and just sit in the lobby, and listen to the music.

I am sorry your trip started off in such a ruff way, but am happy you were able to move forward.

SO happy you guys are ok... I actually teared up reading your account of the accident and seeing the photos.
Glad you found us again and that it will be helpful to you. I know, she was so tiny in those looking back : )

WOW! That's so scary. I'm glad you are all okay. It really does seem like someone was looking out for you all. A guardian angel perhaps. Those kinds of things really make you stop and appreciate the little things. How quickly things can change. It's scary. You just gotta enjoy your life and not take things for granted. *hugs* Disney was definetely a good distraction.
Yes we had a guardian angel looking over us for sure! Disney was the perfect distraction!

The car just takes off on its own. The first time I was lucky enough to spin through a median and have no damage, but the second time I ended up facing the wrong way after smashing against the guard rail. Not fun. At least my air bag didn't deploy, but that may have protected you from more injury, even if stinky and painful.

Thanks goodness it didn't derail your trip completely. That would have made it so much worse! The Grand Floridian looks wonderful.
Thank you, yes, he truly was. Yes, it is such a helpless feeling. Glad you were o.k. too, geez!

Congrats on two free nights at the Grand Floridian. What a great way to get things back on track.
Yes, it was a rough start to say the least. Thanks, we certainly enjoyed our time there!

You guys are amazing that you kept going to WDW- can't wait to hear the rest!
Thank you! More coming today!

Glad to be reading another of your TR's!!
Well what happened on your trip? Thanks for coming back for more : )
