All right, let’s get this thing started. I have been home for a week now and I am still waiting for DH to get the pics onto my computer, but I’ll get started.
Cast of characters included the usual timkel clan
Timkelmom (Kim) - DH
Timkeldad - DH
Timkelkid #1 - DS
Timkelkid #2 - DD
and we added two characters this trip Timkelgrandma (my mom) and Timkelgrandad (my stepfather).
We had been staying near-by in Clermont, FL for several days before our actual arrival date. We had the opportunity to visit Aquatica, the new water park by Sea World, on Friday 9/12.
We got a call from my parents that they had landed (around 10:00 a.m.) and were on ME. They had found the ME desk no problem and were happy not to have to worry about luggage.
So we checked out of our camp ground and arrived at Pop Century around 11:30 a.m. It took us a little while to secure parking for our large vehicles, we were trying to be as respectful as we could of other cars and not take up too many spaces. DH forgot to take a pic of it, but I think we took up 10 spaces in the back of the lot.
So we met my parents, checked in (Yay our rooms were ready), and brought our stuff to the room. My parents looked around PC a little while we did this as they had no bags to worry about. Mom had already picked up her scooter, so she was a happy camper.
Our room was as expected. Clean, although a little small, and tidy. We had two towel puppies waiting for us in our window which made DD very happy. We had adjoining rooms with my parents on the 3rd floor of the 50’s building. My parents had requested a king-sized bed and got it. This was so that there was more room to park the scooter inside the room.
As the kids get older and bigger, I am wondering how long we can continue to stay at the values. Two full bed are getting a little cramped with growing, older children. This time we actually brought a twin-sized air mattress and DS slept on it on the floor. It worked out pretty well and DH slept much better because of it.
I actually slept pretty well this trip as my mattress was firmer which is what I prefer. In past trips I have had trouble sleeping at Pop and the other values.
So after about an hour or so we headed to our first bus of the trip with the scooter/ECV. We were off to MK to find some lunch and take advantage of our first meal for free. My parents were really hungry as they had gotten up very early for their flight and only had a light breakfast.
