We're as ready as we get!

Six Suitcases, 5 already in the car, one on the dining room table, waiting for the last minute items. It can only mean one thing....

Disney World Here We Come!!!

And let me tell you, that kinda scares me to death!

This is the first "big" vacation we've taken in over 5 years, and it's the first time we've flown with more than one child.

I think my fears, and I have many, are rational. I know this won't be a relaxing vacation, but I hope it's one we remember fondly. I have ZERO expectations. Go with the flow...that's what I keep telling myself. I hope they sleep well and don't get too tired, too fast. I hope they enjoy themselves, and take in the magic that is Disney World.

Disney World. It really is quite the place. I've been 3 times. When I was 9, once in college, and on my Honeymoon. I didn't get to go as a young girl though. A young girl who believes in princesses. I am so excited to take my girls! I know they will be awed, and that is so special. It's why I wanted to go now. Ellie won't be awed much longer.

So off we go! One double stroller, one single stroller, the "leash" for Austin :), snacks but no drinks for the plane, 2 empty sippy cups that we will fill after we go through security, diapers, wipes, clothes, PJ's, swimsuits, jackets....the list is quite long! Hopefully I've thought of everything, and if I haven't, that's what Wal*Mart is for.

So wish us luck, and say a little prayer that Jason and I keep our sanity. Our flight leaves at 10am! And I'm sure when I get back, I will have many bloggable memories to share! :)

Oh, and the Benadryl worked like a charm for nap today! Thank you Jesus!

Oh Shelley!! I hope you are having a good time! I am so sorry I haven't been on here in forever. I just haven't been into the blog thing as of late. I so want to get back to it though.

Be safe and make some wonderful memories :)
