One More Day till Florida
Hi There!! Welcome back today!! And Happy Throwback Thursday!
I have one day left before I leave on my first trip of 2015. Can you believe I'm hitting the travel scene the middle of February, when Tanya has already gone on three trips so far this year!
Wow, it's hard to keep up with my "little" cuz!
Today is just filled with lots of errands and last minute "to do's." First, I attended the Spelling Bee at the girls' school bright and early this morning.
Neither Gianna or Kelsey was in it, although Kelsey was an alternate if one of the 3rd graders were not in attendance. But, they all showed up, so I just enjoyed a very intense spelling Bee that included the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. The winner was a 5th grader. I think I was more nervous for these kids than their parents!!
Next, I got my nails done and even opted for a relaxing back massage!
I will be picking up the kids from school today since we need to immediately drive over and pick up the Girl Scout cookies, which have arrived! I cannot wait for that!!
Ok - time to talk about my trip...
The first full day in Florida (which is technically, Day 2 of travel) will be spent in Clearwater, specifically at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.
Have you seen the movies, A Dolphin Tale and A Dolphin Tale 2? If you haven't seen these films, it is important to note that the story takes place at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. That is the reason, we decided to visit so we could see the "stars" of the films - "Winter" and "Hope."
On Day 3 of our trip, we will be headed to Disney World!!
Although I planned out our overall itinerary for this trip, Gianna and Kelsey set the course for all of the attractions we will be hitting throughout the park. It's good to see that the travel planning bug is rubbing off on my girls!
They also went on line and worked out all the details for our "MagicBands" bracelets, which are the newest system implemented at Disney World, for access to the park, hotel room, dining and attractions.
SO HERE'S THE LIST OF ATTRACTIONS!
* The Barnstormer (Fantasy Land)
* Big Thunder Mountain (Frontierland)
* Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger (Tomorrowland)
* Country Bear Jamboree (Frontierland)
* Dumbo The Flying Elephant (Fantasyland)
* It's a Small World (Fantasyland)
* Jungle Cruise (Adventureland)
* Mad Tea Party (Fantasyland) (count me out with this spinning ride!)
* The Magic Carpets of Aladdin (Adventureland)
* The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (Fantasyland)
* Monsters, Inc Laugh Floor (Tomorrowland)
* Prince Charming Regal Carrousel (Fantasyland)
* Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (Fantasyland)
* Splash Mountain (Frontierland)
* Tomorrowland Speedway (Tomorrowland)
* People Mover (Tomorrowland)
Whew - seems like they included everything!!
* Captain EO (Future World)
* Mission SPACE (Future World)
* Sea Turtles (Future World)
* Sharks (Future World)
* Soarin (Future World) - EVERYONE'S FAVORITE!
* Test Track (Future World) - 2nd FAVORITE!
* Kiliminjaro Safari (Africa) - 3RD FAVORITE
* Affection Section (Rafiki's Planet Watch)
* Dinosaur (Dinoland)
* Expedition Everest (Asia) - MOM'S PSYCHED ABOUT THIS ONE!!
* Pimeval (Dinoland)

So, we certainly will have full days while in Disney!!!
And that's it for me - I'm out to do more errands.
See ya back here tomorrow!

Throwback Thursday Fun
I'm so excited for Elisa's trip tomorrow!
The kids and I just love going to Disney World, we only go every 3-4 years, but when we do...
I become like a big kid when we are there!
So very much fun!!
I can't wait to hear all about Elisa's trip as I too will be following along on her LIVE blogging from Florida!
Not to mention getting the low down in our extreme texting as well! LOL
Be sure to read Elisa's side for all the SCOOP and what rides the girls have planned on taking Elisa and Tedd on!
Wish we could be there with them!
My fingers will be crossed that we can all be there together next year (2016).
Here is our TBT ode to Elisa and gang to wish them an awesome Disney Vacation!!!
As you know, it's another Throwback Thursday (TBT) here at Travelin' Cousins!
It's when we get to reflect on the trips and times in our past. Sometimes only a short time ago, and other times we go way back in our history!
These are days that shaped us and that we encourage you to read and most of the time get a good chuckle from or at least gain a tip or two of what to do or not to do when in some of these interesting situations.
This week is my turn to share a story with you and I'll be taking you back to 2012 and we're going to MALTA - it's a story that I'll never forget, but also one that I never want to re-live! LOL
Read it HERE
And now to catch you up with today's SCOOP:
I'm pretty stoked to be going up to Tahoe to do some biking! It's such a pretty place, and I've only ever been up there in the winter. So this will be an entirely new experience for me!
