Orlando, here we come!

We leave for Orlando Saturday morning. Woo-hoo! I've been looking forward to this for a while.
As I mentioned before, all of this wasn't really well-planned, so hopefully it will go somewhat smoothly. I am repeating this mantra to myself . . 'I will stick to my vacation budget this year. It won't be like the past 10 years. I won't tell myself 'hey, this is our summer vacation, splurge, splurge, splurge . . ' So, I won't go overbudget, right? Say 'yes', even if you don't believe it.

So, here's to fun in the hot Florida sun, screaming on rides at Universal Studios, visiting family (Keithy and Em), and lots of good times!

Hope everyone has a great 4th! I'll be missing y'all . .

(I'll leave you with a few summer pics my mom took last week.)

Have a wonderful vacation (like I even need to say that) and a fabulous 4th of July!!! And if you bust the budget just a tiny bit.. you can make up for it by.. not eating or something practical like that!

the spur of the moment vacations are always the best...well planned one's tend to be hectic and chaotic and something ALWAYS goes wrong!!

You'll have a blast

Last year I left my credit card home in hopes I could stick with it.

Um..

Fer cryin' out loud!
Are you still on vacation?
I'm starting to go through withdrawl here!

I'm a little behind here, but seems you've been gone anyway so I don't feel so bad...lol. Hope your having an awsome time! I can totally identify with your splurging problem. We do it everytime we go on vacation too. It wouldn't be a true vacation if we didn't. See ya when you get back!
