One & One

ONE week until we leave for Florida. We have been planning this trip all year and talking about it for months. Somehow, were almost there! We fly into Tampa with just our little family of 4 and will be staying overnight on St. Pete Beach. We have big plans of vising the condo where Toms grandparents used to live, meeting up with friends and their baby and putting our boys toes in the sand. Itll be a nice, relaxing way to start the trip. On Friday, we will go back to the airport to pick up my parents, since we are sharing a rental car. My sisters family is flying down with them and we will drive our two vans to Disneyworld!! My brothers will both be arriving on Saturday.

We have so much fun planned! We have reservations at Chef Mickeys for breakfast. Trevor will be turned into a pirate at Pirates League. We will attend Mickeys Not-So-Scary Halloween party. Gavin will get his first set of ears. We will start the boys vinylmation and pin collections.

I have lists all over the place. Places we must eat(thanks, Katie!!), souvenirs to purchase, photos to take, hours and parade times. We don't want to miss a thing.

ONE month until Trevor turns 3. I wanted to have a lot of his birthday plans taken care of before our trip and did a pretty good job! His gifts from us are purchased and wrapped. His invitations to his party will be mailed today. He is having a pirate party the day before his real birthday. Its at 11am on a Saturday, so I am hoping we will be cleaned up and packed up by late afternoon. We will head to the cottage overnight and go to Wisconsin Dells first thing in the morning on his birthday. We will spend Sunday and Monday at a waterpark hotel, celebrating the boy who made us parents. And trying to deal with the reality that we have a 3 year old..sigh..

If you like Mexican food, you absolutely must eat at San Angel Inn at Epcot. It's authentic and delicious. You'll also be there during Epcot's Food and Wine festival, which I recommend also!
Have a great trip! : )

Most welcome! Happy to know I love to plan a Disney trip. I'm so excited for y'all and can't wait to hear all about it and see hundreds of photos. :) One of these days the stars will align and the Robertsons+Hopkins+Edwards will all be at Disney together.

LOVE Disney:) Some of our favorite restaurants are Boma, Ohana and Beaches and cream! I have also heard a lot about the hoop-dee-doo revue. There is so much to do at Disney! And taking the free ferry rides is actually a lot of fun....and it's free!
