Hello out there! We've arrived at OKW. I know, I'm SSRmonkey, but we wanted to explore a new resort, so we're at OKW for the week. We stayed in Jacksonville last night and got into Orlando this morning. We hit up Wetzel's Pretzels for our traditional first meal. Today, Dad and I shared a Glorious Garlic pretzel which is really a cheese pretzel with garlic salt on it. It was delicious. Mom and Koala shared their usual (boring) regular pretzel, but to each their own, they like sticking with the usual. We checked in at OKW--Koala flipped out. We didn't tell him that we weren't staying at SSR until we pulled into OKW. He's a creature of habit and we didn't want to listen to his whining the whole 17 hours down in the car. After we saw the sand castle slide at the pool he calmed down and thought this might not be bad after all. Then we got to the room (a studio) and he saw that we have our own separate bed. No more complaints. He's excited., especially after Mom and Dad got him some Lucky Charms cereal at Wal Mart. We are all set now. Now I think it's time for the pool and then we'll get some dinner and head to MK for the evening. It's open until 2am, so we'll see how late we can stay up. I snuck some Red Bull into my suitcase, so I'm good to go. (I'm not allowed to have Red Bull because you can imagine what all the caffeine does to me. Diet Coke is bad enough, but give me a little Red Bull and I really do think it gives me wings. Watch out TinkerBell--I'm going to give you a run for your money on the zip line tonight.) I know this picture is of two kissing swans, and that's a little awkward for me and Koala, but I thought I would share the towel art. Time to work on my tan.
