Disney World was great! We had a lot of fun and some good family time. There were a few moments when I had to remind myself that it wasn't about the vacation itself, but the memories that we were making for years to come. But all in all I would say it was a success.
We left Thursday right after the kids got out of school and started our travel to Kentucky, to spend the night. Amid all the jokes of, can we get KFC when we get there. Maximus was not to keen on the drive after about an hour but not so awful either. Luckily he seemed to figure out that we were going to be spending A LOT of time in the car and this day was his only cranky driving day of the whole trip.
We were 9 miles from our hotel in Kentucky when we just STOPPED on the highway. No cars were moving at all, people where literally getting out of their cars right on the interstate. 9 MILES PEOPLE!!!! AFTER 6 HOURS OF DRIVING!! We sat there for and hour and fifteen minutes when all of a sudden cars just started going. There was none of that stop start stuff, we went from 0-70 and never did see any sign of what the problem was.
That night we all piled into one hotel room (all 8 of us) and pretty much just passed out where ever, I had either Maximus's feet or butt in my face all night, that is if he was sprawled out across my chest. He's a pretty good little cuddler that one!
We woke up around 8 the next morning and went down to breakfast, made some friends (Maximus is a great ice breaker, he will talk/flirt with anyone), and then we on our way to Georgia!
The Drive to Georgia was uneventful, thankfully and we pulled into our hotel around 8 that night. Yuck, is an understatement. The room was mostly clean I guess. But the area left MUCH to be desired and our cable didn't work or the internet and the rest of the clientele was, ummmmm......interesting? But they had a free hot breakfast buffet so we figured that at least we would be fed in the morning!
EWWW.....gross, what is that? Let's go! Let's go! McDonald's anyone?
