Haha I know all about those billboards. The first time I saw them I think Chad heard me complain every single time.

Now, on a funny note! Since you can't spell around Hollie and the fact that she loves to read. She saw the signs our last trip. Her words were, "Mommy, what in the world is a Cafe Rise......qqq qqqq qqqq ewwwy mean?" I told her it was a cafe that served rotten food!

Oh my gosh, the start of your trips sound like mine! My Charles also gets really fed up with my (accidental) speeding. He always tells me that cruise control exists for a reason and I often hear, "the speed limit here is 65. It looks like you're going 80." Glad you made to Disney without -too- much incident!

We always forget something, it just can't be helped.

When we make the drive the boring part for us is in Florida. We are driving in Florida FOREVER. I think we'll play the counting billboard signs next time. We also found lots of cops in Florida.

I'm so glad Charles didn't have an accident. I can't believe you actually ran the light. You're so brazen.

We had our first stay at Riverside in Feb and loved it. It's just so pretty. I wish we had been there longer and been able to take advantage of everything they have to offer.

at Charles' dancing and your "special" driving technique to save him from an accident!!

So glad you made it!
Hmm. - not a fan of the bayou?

It's funny that we get excited when we get to Georgia, even though it's still a ways to get to WDW. It's all relative I guess. For us, driving at night helps the "are we there yet" blues. No one says it when they're sleeping!

I crack up at your drives. They always sound horrendous, but I know they have to be much better than driving from Delaware could ever possibly be.

Bummer about the razor!

How did you ever make it through an 8 hour class the night before you left?

Shocking I tell you!!!


If Charles drove a bit faster you would have been at the resort so he could use the bathroom there and not have to make a pitstop right before.

I always feel like I forget something. I am finally at the stage where I know I am not in the wilderness and whatever I forget I can replace usually without too much effort. Just money.

So glad you are on Property.

Sounds like a fun trip so far! And when ya gotta go, ya gotta go! Sometimes risk is worth the reward (however, I would probably be with Connor and be paranoid someone would report me )

Will someone fill me in on what Cafe Risque is? I'm out of the loop!

Laughing while reading your morning start. Sounds like another family I know..... And, then the left turn on red-Yep, I know someone else who regularly does that here in our own home town! (Late at night- when I'm sitting at a red light, and there are no other cars in sight?!?!)

Yay for arriving at POR. Can't wait to hear more!

I was about to say the same thing!

I can so relate to waking up the night before a trip with something that I need to remember to do or pack on my mind and then totally forgetting it the next day I've learned to just go ahead and get up and do it right then....

When we drive, Georgia becomes the longest state that ever existed, of course. What if we had to drive as far as some of our northern friends do??? Even with the approx 11 hours we drive, I like splitting it up and making that Perry, GA stop for sleep.

Mostly, I like flying.

I am the little old lady driver. I put the cruise control on two miles under the speed limit and putt putt ahead!

I am looking forward to seeing lovely resort photos.

Well goodness, poor Charles!! You drive to fast, compalain he is too slow, forget his all important electric razor and force him to shave the old fashioned way and has to endure an illegal turn in order to relieve himself...

That man is in serious need of some pixie dust

At least it sounds free of teen drama so far!!

Although I'm sure the trip seems long, I am jealous of anyone within driving distance! I can't even imagine trying to do it from Iowa

I will have to assume you have partaken of said Cafe if you tell your daughter it has rotten food.
