Grocery Shopping Fun!

Went to Walmart this evening and found milk for .99/gallon!! Last week, it was $2.46. I am so excited! I may fill my freezer with .99 milk. My family goes through 5-6 gallons/week! That adds up.

And, not only did I find milk at a great price, but they also had canned pumpkin in stock again! Last year, there was a pumpkin shortage. You may not know it, but there was. Now, we don't each much pumpkin pie in our house, but my kids think they could live off of pumpkin muffins. So, in addition to my 6 gallons of milk, I bought 10 cans of pumpkin!!

Guess what we're having for breakfast tomorrow!

Where did we stay?

We stayed at Disney’s Pop Century Resort. It’s my favorite value resort at Walt Disney World!

The decor is super cool…Pop Sign


Pop Decor The kids love the Hippy Dippy pool, and there’s plenty of seating for the grown ups (and the teens who think they are). It’s shaped like a flower and has flower sprayers around the perimeter.

We went to Walt Disney World!!

We spent last week at Walt Disney World! We had a blast, of course. We were joined by my mom, two sisters, brother-in-law, three nieces, and my Papa! This was the first time my nieces had been to WDW. I couldn’t wait to experience the magic with them! (We actually traveled to Disney World as part of 3D Travel’s ‘Ultimate Field Trip’ which I will blog about at a later date.)

Here are a few highlights of the start of our trip. I will post over the next few days about each day of our trip. As I blog, I will let you in on secrets, tips, and just plain fun information! Watch for posts on how to pack with just carry-on luggage, how to entertain kids on the airplane, etc.


Emma was up and ready to go not-so bright and early! She couldn’t wait to get there. And, YES, I’m one of ‘those’ parents who dresses their children in Disney-themed clothing for the entire trip! (At least when they’re young enough to still enjoy it!)

Emma didn’t make it too far into the movie before she fell asleep and slept through the entire flight. Did I mention it was early when we left home?

All of the cousins at the Orlando airport waiting for their ‘surprise’ (my Papa joined us and the kids had no idea). We’re waiting to board the Magical Express shuttle to Walt Disney World!

Papa - surprise!


Stay tuned for…our resort arrival
