There's never enough vacation time
I'm always thinking about it
I can't imagine being in it alone

I know, just one more sleep but can we call tossing and turning actually sleeping?

I'll post some live pictures too. DH declared a 30 minute per day Internet (aside from line apps) usage per person so I know I'll be spending my ration here.

Guinness loves the bed. Ha! I woke him up with the flash. He seems more sedated from his fatty afternoon nap.

What does the soft opening entail?

My plan to have 5 bags total turned into 7. Of course there aren't packed full but we need room for souvenirs. Between these 4 kids they've got about $1,000! They've been hoarding for this very occasion.

DDs friend made us the cutest thank you gift filled with a sweet card, a Starbucks gift card, some treats for the plane, and fuzzy socks for everyone. She's the best kid with the sweetest mom. She also baked us homemade cookies.

Michael made a very basic chicken for dinner and we had whatever fruit, bread, etc needed to be eaten.

Its 2 am and I have 2 more hours to sleep but I'm so excited, I can't find it in me to rest my brain. I've truly been planning this trip for over a year. The more I poke around the theme park area, the more I think we must do.....until about 2 seconds ago when I realize the plan is to go enjoy my family at Disney without breaking our backs to see and do every little thing. I'd like to see the FL soft opening but not at the expense of having my face in my phone all day. I'd love to meet every villain at MNSSHP but not if it means lines all night.

So my trip mantra remains the same....life is too short for self-hatred and celery sticks. Can't wait to make new memories with my family , to reunite with old friends, and meet new ones as well. See ya real soon ladies:

Today we'll be at Disneyworld!!!!! I'll keep you posted at AOA, THV, and AKV Kidani.

And yet more SLC airport fun.


Breakfast:




And the first ride of the trip: the airport Peoplemover...



You'll basically never see me in a pic as I'm the one taking them all.

Next stop is a brief layover in Viva Las Vegas. Love a good slot machine.

Don't hate me because we're so good looking when waking up at 4 am and corralling 4 kids. Michael thinks I'm nuts for posting these terrible airplane lighting iPhone pics. Clearly I don't care.







Here we goooooooo........

Nope, it's all about timing and luck with those things I think. We will see! Like you, if it happens it happens. I do (of course) hope it happens!
