    Day 1

    After spending the night at an ok hotel in Indianapolis, we rose at 5am (I got up earlier, of course! ;) ) and got ready to head to the airport! Our van arrived at 5:30 and we were off!!

    This was Gabriel's first flight and my first time flying with a baby/ lap rider. It wasn't long, though, before Gabriel and Matt were out. In fact, he was pretty much asleep by take off!! The early morning clouds were so pretty outside.

    About 2/3 through the flight, Gabriel woke up! He was such a stinker, to the poor people behind us, Matt moved to the empty row in front of us.

    First monorail ride!

    I couldn't resist this shot! Matt complained the whole time!

    Long line waiting for ME! Isabelle helped keep Gabriel occupied!

    I didn't get my camera out during check-in I suppose... In our room we had Mickey towel head and Gabriel enjoyed his beads! Isabelle and I got to room decorating while Matt laid down.

    Sorry I have been missing a bit. I had my DDs 10th Bday party over the weekend, now working on DS's. Levi's birthday is Friday. So I am trying to just keep it all together. Isabelle's therapist actually told ME at her last appt that she can't believe how rational I am with all of the mess I have dealt with the last 2 months, being pregnant, and knowing Levi's would be 6 on Friday. Truth is I hide it. So I melted down to her for a couple mins. I am scared anymore, I don't talk about it as much, due to some pretty serious happenings last spring. So, bare with me!! :) I am uploading now!

    We don't usually wait in line for characters. I'd rather do character meals. And I knew we would be seeing Tigger at Crystal Palace for dinner that night, but I couldn't resist!!! Tiggy was is FAV afterall!!! Though, he wasn't too sure about Pooh.
