Before I go on about what is going on in my little world right now - I'd rather write about our vacation!
So this year my husband, who is wonderful and thoughtful by the way, suggested we take my 2 nieces and nephew to Florida with us. At first I wasn't sure, but we were originally going to spend the week with my dad and his side of the family. My nieces and nephew had never met the family in Florida-well my older niece has, but not the other 2. So I did think it was a good idea. I don't know when my sister will ever travel to Florida again and I wanted my grandparents to meet their 3 other grandchildren - enough time has been lost.
Then my hubby decides - "Let's surprise them with a trip to Disney" - WHAT!!! Now I really think he's lost his mind but hey, I get everything priced out and he gives me the go ahead! Now I'm a bit panicked. 2 adults, 5 kids (16, 15, 13, 10 & 9) packed in a Pathfinder to drive from NJ to FL - oh boy!! The thought of stopping in Disney was the only thing keeping me excited about this entire trip.
We left 8/20 right after work - and drove straight thru the night! I let my son sit in the front seat, while I drove - we took turns driving but he was really tired so I drove most of the way.
We arrived in Florida early morning but took a detour to visit the University of Florida! My son is supposed to be researching colleges so this was a nice stop for us!
This is all I have for now - in the next few days I will be posting more on our Big Family Vacation to Florida!!!
