Leaving Friday!!! See Ya Later Tornados!!!

I am beyond excited!

We are finally leaving after planning our trip for 2 years! We will be driving from Moore, Oklahoma and wont's be back until 6/23. We will be staying in the Disney area for two weeks and going to Disney and Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure for two weeks and then go to Siesta Key Beach for a week. This trip could not come at a better time. We are temporarily displaced due to the May 20th tornados in Moore, Ok. If you have been watching the news we live right across the highway from the Warren Theater that was damages and the Hospital and 7-Eleven that was destroyed. Most of our neighborhood is gone. We still have a house, but it is significantly damaged. Needless to say we have had a stressful week. So looking forward to this trip. I am thankful for my family though, All three of my kids schools were in the path of the tornado until it decided to veer off the course it was going. Its just now sinking in that I could have lost all of them. Looking for tons of pixie dust and magic on our first family vacation and 1st trip to Disney/Universal, and the beach. Please no hurricanes!!!

Heard on television tonight that Oklahoma is getting hit again with more tornadoes close to where they hit last week. I am praying for you and family that your house is not in its path again. Stay strong and hope you are having a fantastic time in Disney and that all of your loved ones are safe back at your home.
