Easy

As most of you probably know we took a little (ok maybe not so little Laughing) trip to Orlando last week. I decided that this was going to be a "no work" trip.

This is both hard and easy for me, I want to stay online and keep up to date with guys, but at the same time I just want to "un-plug" and give my family 100% of my attention, so that is what I did!

So now I will be going back and showing you what we did each day! Here is our first day:

(we took a lot of pictures with our phone, so I apologize for the bad quality photos Tongue out)

We flew this time (thanks to Southwest Airlines) and it was so nice to get to Florida on the same day instead of driving 2300 miles one way and having it take 2 days.

It was the first plane ride for my kiddos. Unfortunately I am not good with flying and I get really nervous.

I decided to grab some Dramamine for myself figuring since my kiddos love to ride rides that they would probably be ok.

Once we were on the plane my little girl was so happy and she just loved it! She kept starring out the window and asking about everything she could see.

The vibration of the plane put my little boy to sleep and I was happy that all was going well.

I felt like my head was spinning the whole time, but I was trying to suck it up and just get through it. I just kept telling myself "only 3 more hours" and I kept counting down until we got there.

We had a connection in Denver and had to get off our first plane and switch to a new plane, so I woke my little boy up and he got out of his seat and stood there while we grabbed our bags,

At about that time I heard a passenger loudly say "OH DEAR" as I turned around I saw my little boy throwing up all his food that he ate that morning.

Needless to say I was freaking out trying to figure out what to do, we were being told that we needed to get off the plane so I apologized to pretty much every passenger that was staying on the plane and all of the flight attendants as well. Embarassed I was so embarrassed and felt really bad for the passengers that had to witness it.

Luckily Southwest is very understanding and I doubt he was the first kid to lose it on a plane.

A quick run through the Denver terminal to the restroom, a new set of clothes, and a $10 (that's right $10!!) package of kids Dramamine later, we were ready to continue onto Orlando!

(Not sure what she was looking at in this pic. my hubby took it, but I absolutely love how beautiful the hotel was!)

We arrived to the Loews Pacific Hotel (which I will tell you about in another post) in our KIA Rio (which I will also tell you about later Smile)

It was so nice to be there and have so much of the day still left to do all sorts of fun activities!!

The whole reason we were in Florida was for the Family Forward Conference, so we headed over to register and to see what fun things were in store for us!

I will touch on this a little more in tomorrow's post, but I just want to say that I was absolutely blown away by this conference!

If you have thought abo0ut going to a conference I would really suggest Family Forward, it is amazing!

It was cute because all the little girls realized that they were all 4 years old! They were so excited to make new friends that were the same age.

We headed out to Universal's City Walk, can you guess where we ate? The first person to comment with the right answer I will give $10 Paypal cash too!

(Once again I apologize for the crappy photo quality)

To top off the night Universal pulled out all the stops for us and we had the Wizarding World of Harry Potter all to ourselves for a VIP dessert party!

How AWESOME is that!! After we ate our YUMMY custard tarts and other desserts we headed off to ride the rides without any lines!! (are you jealous yet?Laughing)

It was so amazing to have the park to ourselves for the conference.

You can probably guess what we did after that... that's right we crashed! What an awesome and exhausting day!
