OK, its long overdue but I feel obligated to write a TR, after reading everyone elses. This trip originates from St. Louis, driving to the Kingdom, in my DW grocery getter (Minivan). Cast member include myself (Tim), DW (Diane), DS4 (Jack) and DD2 (Livi). We left July 5th at around 4am and the plan was to drive as far as we could stay the night somewhere in Georgia and finish the drive up on the 6th. BTW the two monkeys (DS & DD) were so excited they didn’t fall back asleep until about 7:30, and they are not morning people.
The drive down was uneventful except for one small hiccup in Tennesse. The kids had both ate a little breakfast, (Blueberry muffins and applejuice), and we got gas and pottied, and were in for a long stretch of driving. Then some strange noises came from DD, noises I had neverheard before. Then the eruption…OMG she threw up…and not just a little. It kept coming, and coming, it was enough to make a frat boy proud, and all she could say was “daddy I sick”. She was then lucky enough to get a bath in a rest are sink. After the rest area bath it was back on the road. The rest of the drive was quiet, and we actually made it to Orlando in one day. We checked in to the Holiday Inn outside Universal at about 9:30, which let us get up early the next morning for a full day at the Magic Kingdom. Here are some pics from day one…
PS, I am clearly not a English major…I know I ramble…Don’t make fun of my writing too much.
PSS…I forgot on July 3rd my DD developed some sort of crazy swollen eye thing. Which her doc gave us medicine for and was gone by day 3 of the trip.
