Our big Disney trip!
So I have put off blogging this cause there is just SO much involved, but I'm gonna do it, by golly! So I'm starting with something easy - the drive there! :) I spent so much time prepping for this car ride and it went so well! Each kiddo got a map with a star marked about every 45 minutes or so and at that point they each got a Disney pin to unwrap. Made the time fly by! This pic is one of the very few stops we made - Josh and I have a pic of us at this same sign ten years ago so it was fun to stop at the same spot.
The kids were a bit bummed we didn't get to go see the Duck Dynasty building/city but they at least got a good taste of what Louisiana looks like! We only had one little girl take a nap the whole day....
And we ended the night in Tallahassee at Cracker Barrel, per the kiddos request. Josh and I HATE Cracker Barrel but we figured this vacay was all about the kids so we might as well suck it up and do it!
They hated the food just as much as we do, but they were thrilled with all of the games. It was a long day just to end up at a hotel, but overall the drive wasn't bad!
The kids were thrilled to eat breakfast at the hotel the next morning and were super impressed with the automatic pancake machine! Heck, I was impressed with the automatic pancake machine! :) It was a quick meal and then we loaded up and headed to Orlando! It was such a beautiful drive through the woods of Florida! Not what we expected at all. Just about four hours this morning but it went so much slower cause they were READY to WDW!
