HERE!!! DID I SEE CHEESE BALLS?????????????
I do what I can.I'm in! I often say trip reports and pictures are what keep me sane until my next Disney vacation. Thanks for your contribution to my sanity....I need all I can get.
Your kids are adorable as are your doggies.
I was born and raised about 40 minutes from Green Bay. Just west of Appleton, in Dale. I don't know if we got lucky, but the drive really was much better than we had expected. We had our entire DVD collection along, along with some new ones that we surprised the kids with.very cool. i live in Green Bay, and I just started toying with the idea of driving for my trip in March. We have a daughter that will be 2.5 at the time. those dvd players are the best.
Based on depressed look on Pepper's face a few minutes later, I'd say Bambi came out ahead on that one.Haha i love the Disagreement with the navigator picture. best picture ever!
I've got 2 weeks worth of material. I hope you're comfortable! Welcome aboard!you're off to a great start...looking forward to the rest!
We were suprised at how good it went. I've got to give credit where credit is due - Bambi's planning really got us through.Brave man you are. 20 hours in the van with children and wife.LOL Sounds like a great drive tho. Waiting for more.
Go ahead and read. The rest of us will wait......I'm here too! Now i need to go and read the first update!
I got my handy!!!!
Thanks for reading and have a great vacation!
Thanks for posting your trip report, staying tune for more...getting excited 'cause we leave in 3 weeks!!!
I can't imagine making the trip in a car. It was sooo nice being able to move around a bit and have room to stretch. Thanks for reading along!I'm so excited to read about your trip! My first EVER trip to Disney World was a road trip in a Toyota Corolla with a 4yo, 2yo, and me 6mo pregnant... That experience alone almost ruined Disney for me!
Yes you did! That was Bambi's idea - put the kids in the back seat with the Cheese Balls between them. She's so smart.HERE!!! DID I SEE CHEESE BALLS?????????????
Shhhh... I won't tell them. Would the "other side" of the state be anywhere near La Crosse? Bambi and I went to college there. I loved that area.hello we also drive from WI to Disney. We live on the other side of the state so it adds about another 3 hours on for us. Hmm haven't tried the drive with our 2 dogs however. uuhh better watch it if my kids see that they might get ideas.
Enjoying the trippie so far can't wait for more.
That guy really burns me.I'm in.
I love the picture of the navigator showdown. You're so lucky to have dogs. middlepat won't let me get a dog.
middlepat's dogless wife
PS- Did I mention I want a dog?
No Argument here...Clearly, the sand is getting to you.
You're done dude, you lost, sorry---I don't make the rules, I just enforce them--Fed FuzzUm... Hello....Innocent bystander here
OK, here's what you do. Go to your local humane society and get the biggest, uglyest, slobbery-est mangy old mutt that they have. Bring him home and present him to your wife. If all goes well, she'll be begging you to return him. If not, well, you can always win the "uglyist dog in the neighborhood" contest.Um... Hello....Innocent bystander here....
We've done a few, but never more than 6 hours until this trip. Believe it or not, that tub is still 2/3 full sitting on the counter at home. Then again, that is a LOT of cheeseballs! <-The DIS needs a Cheeseball smiley.The dog pictures are great!
And you are obviously an experienced family road tripper. You got all the essentials: DVD player and cheeseballs!
That was one of our big concerns too. Evan is still strapped in with the 5 point harness, Madison uses the van shoulder belt. Both are comfortable in their seats, and we make sure to keep them well entertained.Great updates, I can't believe the kids took those booster seats for that long...my two year old would be demanding freedom after a few hours
I wouldn't turn away the dog! I kept Middlepat after all!OK, here's what you do. Go to your local humane society and get the biggest, uglyest, slobbery-est mangy old mutt that they have.

no your not!!! just go down to the spca and get a dog.i have learned along time ago 2 words, yes dear!! and it made my life alot easier. for as long as there is no dog, she will allways have the last word,"well, you wont let me get a dog"!! they are great, feed them and rub there belly and they will love you forever!!!! almost like my wife has me trained. no wait.Um...
