The Final Countdown!

Disneyland California, July 2010

In just a few short days we'll be taking our first family vacation to "The Happiest Place on Earth!"  The one in Florida, that is.  This photo was from our one day in Disneyland 3yrs ago when we visited my brother's family in California.  We are all getting excited, and I'm hoping the rest of the week goes smoothly.  We have school, ballet, cleaning, shopping, and packing to do.  We have at least 3 runny noses and are praying hard that everyone is feeling well for some fun family days.  We have been planning this trip since the spring, with a countdown of nearly 100 days, and now it's almost here!

I've been making agendas and packing lists, considering different schedule options and planning out all the restaurants (we're on a FREE dining plan!).  They have some new "MagicBands" to figure out; bracelets that carry all the information about your Disney plans, and even FastPass ride reservations that we can make now online.  It's a lot to think about, but all the planning is part of the fun!  We watched the promotional DVD again last night and got even more excited!  Our daily countdown chain has already disappeared, but we don't need it anymore now that we're getting so close :)

We'll be flying out of another city, so that will take some coordination, too.  It has been a busy few weeks getting ready for a big vacation, traveling to Houston, starting school, starting ballet, and also starting the new homeschool co-op.  Today was our 2nd co-op and it totally wiped me out!  I am so exhausted by bedtime each day that I haven't had the energy to blog.  But I realized tonight that I have so many photos to share!  Maybe during packing breaks in the next few days I can share a few.  For now, I had better get some rest.  Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend!
