Make a Wish Trip to Disney.....Day 1

We returned on Saturday from Hayden's Make A Wish Trip to Disney World. We had such an amazing time. I kept a journal of the day to day events, what we did, who we saw, etc. I want to remember every single memory we made on this trip. I want to relive everyday as I read it. I want to feel the feelings I had while living it. I want and I will cherish these days we shared together as a family. All the fun and silly times will be forever sketched in my mind. I will try to do a post a day of the journal writtings complete with pictures. I am warning you now, there will be a ton of pictures. We took over 1,000.....yes 1,000 pictures. I am hoping to start my scrapbook soon too. As I do it I will take pictures of the pages so you can share in our amazing vacation. Let's get started.... Day 1 ~ Saturday April 4, 2009 ~ We left for our hotel in Sterling, VA at 2:00pm. The kids were great for the two hour trek. We decided to get a hotel room for the night across from the airport so we didn't have to rush so much the morning of our flight. After we got settled in our room, we decided to go out for dinner. We found out "Famous Dave's", one of our favorite resturants, was just down the rode. So off we were for some ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. To our surprise, the kids were great at dinner. We scarfed down our food and were on our way. We then stopped for ice cream sundaes & milk shakes. We headed back to our hotel to get ready for bed, but the kids were a bit wired. We finally got them settled and snug in their bed for what is hopefully a good night sleep because tomorrow is the big day.......the kids first plane and the day we go to Disney World......what an adventure it will be!!! ....to be continued.......
