Day 1 – Pop Century

We never expected to be to Florida on Saturday.  We left Michigan Friday after school and made it as far as Louisville, Kentucky the first night.  We left about 8:00 am Saturday morning expecting to land somewhere in Northern Florida or Southern Georgia for the night.  But, we made it all the way to Walt…

Planning for a Trip Begins Now?

Almost Wordless Wednesday – Disney Dreams Come True Parade

Building Memories at Walt Disney World

Whenever I drink Pepsi from a can I first raise it to my grandmother who died seven years ago.  It has to be a can and it has to be Pepsi. That was a big part of my growing up was going to Grandma’s house and having a cold Pepsi from her refrigerator.  So now…
