Hop in the truck kids… we’re going to Disney World

Hop in the truck kids… we’re going to Disney World
05 Nov 2013

When Wendy gets home from work today, we are leaving on our road trip to Disney World.

This will not only be the girls first time, but it will also be mine. I didn’t get to go as a kid on a family vacation, or with friends for Spring Break. Wendy went with her family when she was 12 (but she got pneumonia on the drive back… so she is really looking forward to this trip).

It is a place I have always wanted to go, but growing up in a middle class family, we just couldn’t afford it.

This will be the most southern point that I have driven to. Previously, I have driven to Canada’s east (2005) and west (1998) coasts, but until this trip, the furthest south I have driven is Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (2010).

The girls are super excited; getting them off to school today was not easy. They wanted to leave right away because they can’t wait to get to Magic Kingdom!

Since last Tuesday, when we told them we were going, they have been giddy with excitement. If you missed it, here is the reveal video:

The truck is packed and ready to go!
