Good morning from MK. We are awaiting the opening show having arrived at the park close to 8:00am. We did not end up going out last night but I plan to make it a full day today.

It is already above 70 degrees this morning...wow. Thank goodness we hit Walmart for shorts for the kids. I will suffer in pants today.

Have some must dos myself here which don't coincide with the kids who would simply ride BTMRR and SM all day.

Hope everybody has a great day!

OK quick post on today our last day here. We were at MK until about 4pm or so. Fun stuff to mention: were caught the trolley down Main St to the castle...very cool. We did Enchanted Tales with Belle...cute but not worth a repeat for us and my DD was in the show. We rode the Riverboat for the first time ever. I had a Mickey Bar thankfully but no popcorn all trip. We saw Country Bears for the first time in forever. We rode a broken Dumbo. We played Sorcerers of the MK. We visited Downtown Disney and I got a gift...I think? We played Fantasia Gardens mini golf.

That was the last day in a nutshell. Lots of details and photos later. I think this trip was just long enough honestly. My dogs are barking!! We probably ran the old people into the ground too. I warned everybody beforehand this was gonna be a harsh one. Even I have to admit being off my feet all day tomorrow is gonna be nice!

May not hear from.me again until Wed as we have the long drive home tomorrow.

Left FLA this morning around 7am. We have made a few stops including a stop at South of the Border...where DH insisted on washing his car. Not kidding. We did make a nice long stop for dinner at Applebees. We are about 2.5 hours from home and should get in close to 10pm. It has been a great trip a.d drive wasn't bad. I covered the drive through NC and SC this afternoon...about 5.5 hours. Phone is about to give out and don't have charger access due.to DVD player going. Might do a quick update tomorrow of MAYBE start my TR with photos. We shall see.

Greetings from the comfort of my couch at home IN Maryland! I'm at home waiting for a fireplace repair company. Funny how when we left Maryland it was a snowy and cold morning...and today the outside temps are 68 degrees! At least our Florida adjustment wasn't too bad! So am happy to get the fireplace fixed right now...as it is expected temps will drop back into the 30s in the next day or so I believe!

We got in around 10pm last night as expected. It would have been earlier if we had not had a leisurely dinner at Applebee's in Virginia, but that's okay as it was a good meal and a nice break. We split our drive back between 3 adults. DH took first shift from 7am until about noon when we stopped for gas and lunch. I took the noon to 5:45pm shift of so, when we broke for dinner and gas. My FIL drove from about 7pm until 10pm. So it wasn't bad at all.

Our doggie was thrilled to see us and ready to hop in the car last night. She was staying at the home of my MIL and FIL where my SIL and nephew also currently live. SIL just put her dog of about 8 years down due to cancer on Jan. 2nd, so our dog filled a void there for her and my nephew and also our doggie Jazz has a MEAN sounded bark...though she'd never hurt anybody! She loves EVERYONE!

My SIL posted constant photos and updates from home to FB and I would say right now she has more photos of our dog on FB than we do. Here are just a few:


With my nephew


With my SIL


Relaxing on the couch (BTW she is not allowed on OUR couches!)


In bed again

And then a photo of our new kitten Sox when my SIL visited our house to feed my son's goldfish:


So the cats are happy to have their humans back at home. Little Sox has been at my side and purring away and our older kitty Maverick is happy as well. Now to wean them back off the all-you-can-eat buffet plan. I just use a feeder for their dry catfood while we are away, but now I have to get back to regulating their feeding as Maverick has some weight to lose.

Now I'm working on getting my photos uploaded now so I can share them here. I haven't even gone through them myself yet. Hoping to at least start my trip report here soon!

Congrats on the 68 degrees! We came home this month from usual highs in Florida to unusual lows at home, which is not fun. You must run your life better.

Your SIL took some adorable pics of your pets!

So was washing the car at South of the Border, on your hubby's bucket list?

So glad you made it home safely! It sounds like you had a good trip! I wish we lived close enough to drive.

Looks like your puppy had a great vacation too. LOL I loved all of the pictures!

WELCOME HOME!!!

Yeah...you are doing it WRONG I guess! It was definitely a good way to adjust. This morning we have high winds. I was almost sure we'd wake up to find our house leading to a yellow brick road!

Yes the photos are pretty good.

Washing the car at South of the Border was NOT on his list, but having all that salt on his car our ENTIRE vacation (since we left MD in the snow) was driving him nuts. Don't know why he couldn't wait until we got home but whatever. He was sure we were getting BETTER gas mileage now that the car was clean. OK then.

Thanks! Yes it's not exactly a day trip really and it's not a whole lot of fun, but it saved me at LEAST $700 to $1200 in airfare to do it that way, so in my opinion...worth it. DH doesn't enjoy it so I told him next time he can fly down and I'll drive with the kids!

Yes our puppy was definitely spoiled rotten while we were away, but that's not a bad thing. I think really there was mutual enjoyment on both sides (dog and people's) having her there which is why we asked if they wanted to keep her for us. She's a good and easy dog so we never feel like she'lll burden anyone. Honestly if Disney had hotels that allowed pets we'd take her with us. She's great on trips too!

Love the pictures of your pup. Looks like he had a lovely vacation also.
