Here is the promised Disney post.

We had such a great time. We left here right in front of the biggest snow storm of the year. I think they shut the airport right after we left.

I found out going through security, that my drivers license was expired. Apparently women from Iowa with expired licenses are very dangerous characters. I was pulled out and patted down for extra security.

I had worried about Sissy being scared on the plane but she was a real trouper.

We arrived in Florida and went pick up the rental car. They won’t let you get a car with an expired license, but we finally worked it out by putting the car in Loml’s name.

The hotel was great, two bedrooms a living room and a kitchen and dining area. Having all that space was wonderful.

Typically we of course overslept the first night and had to really scramble that morning. Ate a quick breakfast at the hotel and were off to the Magic Kingdom.

We had borrowed my mother’s GPS, boy was that a big help getting around. All but the one time that it bypassed the toll both for parking at Disney. We had a heck of a time finding our way back!

Once we arrived at the Magic Kingdom, we were nearly over whelmed, I had everything plotted out as to where we went first and what we did every minute but is was just too much to keep everyone on the same page. So we went freestyle after all and two weeks of scheduling went out the window.


First we met Mary Poppins, a real treat for Sissy, she wore out two copies of the movie when she was little. For Sissy all of these people are very real. Watching her talk with Mary Poppins was such a thrill to me. I nearly cried.

PhotobucketI had bought her a book with pictures of Disney characters and we had everyone sign by their picture. This way she has a lasting souvenir of the their meeting.


Chip and Dale dumped glitter on Sissy’s head.


and then ushered us in for a wonderful day in the Magic Kingdom!
