We just got back from the most magical vacation at our very favorite place, Walt Disney World!! In order to get the creative juices flowing, I thought I would start with a daily recap of our trip, sorta like a "day in the life" post. These will be high level and mostly for memory's sake. Once I wrap them up, I will go back and do really detailed posts about where we ate, what we did, tips & tricks, etc!
Before we get started, I just want to throw out a little disclaimer. Ellie will be in a lot more pictures than Eli because he's a teenager who refuses to participate in the photo session fun. However, I can guarantee you that he was indeed there and thoroughly enjoyed himself. Now that we have that little PSA out of the way, let's go!
Like everyone else, we are always looking for ways to save some money for future trips, and driving is one of the easiest ways to do that. With that in mind, we skipped the flight this time in favor of a little family road trip.
To get a jumpstart on the fun, we packed everything we could the night before leaving, got the animals all squared away, and took half days at work on Friday.
I picked up lunch on the way home, so we ate a quick meal and hit the road. Traffic was heavy, but we managed to make it to northern Georgia just in time for dinner. The kids had yet to experience the wonder of Buc-cee's, so we made a stop for gas, dinner, and snacks. They were incredibly excited, which goes to show you that it's the small things in life that mean the most.
Once back in the car, Eric booked us a hotel just outside of Valdosta. We were checked in and snuggled in bed well before 11:00 leaving us only 3 hours to drive on Saturday!
