Finally got to Philly, I say finally because 20 minutes into the flight the idiot sat next to Gary started having a go at the flight attendant, and it got pretty nasty at one point. Thought it'd just be our luck that we got in the air and would have to turn round again!
But here in Philly now, bit disappointed that I can't find anywhere in the airport that sells cheese steak sandwiches (thought can't come to Philly and not have one), but ended up with a fast food burger, well it's beef and cheese, almost the same!
Should be boarding next flight soon, at least we're finally in the states!
Immigration was a breeze, was in and through customs within 20 mins, bit of a queue to get back through security but all went ok in the end.

Damn, we were in a rush and only had a short connection time so only made it to terminal a and f
Finally got to our friends house about 9.15, was a very long day but we got there in the end had a nice day yesterday, Gary went skeet shooting and did did the test he needed to do to get his hunters license. We took the kids to their gymnastics class and went to one of those paint your plate places, it was good fun and got a cool souvenir to take home
Garys gone out hunting this morning, not sure what we're up to yet.
Tomorrow is our flight to Orlando, hoping for less airport drama this time!

Had an awesome day today, Gary's been out shooting, he had a good time, despite getting bitten by bugs, we stopped counting at 41, he's like one big mozzie bite at the mo.
While he was doing that we went to colonial Williamsburg, it's such a cool place, it's one of those historical reenactment towns, you can go see the blacksmiths and weapons makers and stuff. It's so pretty too.
We had a barbeque in the evening, had some yummy steaks and the doves that the guys shot. Then we made smores

This post comes to you from the queue of Soarin in extra magic hours! (free wifi works fine by the way!)
Had another long day today but got to disney eventually got up this morning and packed up, then spent the morning chatting with the friends we were staying with. We left their house about twelve ish to head to Norfolk airport. It's such a nice little airport, very easy to get round and easy to get through. Sat and had some lunch while watching live coverage of a police chase in LA, unfortunately had to leave before it ended so have no idea if they caught the guy it was funny though because all the staff and all the customers were watching it and all of us were going "overtake him!" and "drive faster!"
Flight to Orlando went smoothly, no idiot onboard issues this time landed at 4.35, collected our luggage, gary decided to upgrade the car to a full size SUV (we've got a dollar express card so got 75% off the upgrade fee - the car is HUGE!). Stopped at Walmart on the way to disney. Had intended to stop at publix but took the wrong exit out the airport so ended up on the wrong road. Stocked up on drinkies and brekkie supplies.
Checked into Saratoga springs, have a nice room in congress park. Unpacked then headed out to Epcot for illuminations. Haven't seen it in years but prefer wishes.
In soarin queue at the mo then will probably head back to the hotel.
On a side note I decided that I wanted to go cash free at disney this time so have put a load of money on a gift card, and it was awesome to not have to go through the bag check line. Definately the way to go
Off to islands of adventure tomorrow

Yeah can't fault the wifi so far, not sure on actual speeds but it seems pretty fast, wifi at SSR is great, the only place I lost the wifi yesterday was the boarding bit of soarin where you stand on the little marks on the floor while waiting to board. Worked fine all the way up til that point though.
Off to universal today, currently sat on the balcony eating brekkie. Might even try and stop at mall at millennia tonight after IOA to get cheesecake! (don't like the rest of the mall, only ever go there for the cheesecake factory)
If anyone's got any questions feel free to ask
