Port Visits and Disney World!

Our trip was amazing! Erica and I have decided that every time the boys port in the states we will be going to see them. I guess I should start putting money away now for those random trips to come.

We drove 17 hours down. We got in at almost 7 am. Thankfully I called the hotel at around 2 am to make sure they would have a room ready for us. The guy was super nice and super helpful. Normally they don't let people check in that early but since we were staying a few days he said it would be fine. He even made sure we had the room closest to the door!

We got in, took showers and tried to fall asleep. We slept for about 45 min before the boys started calling to tell us that they were almost out of work. Nice. So the boys got to the room and we decided to go out to lunch in 2 hours. Erica and her husband headed to their room to take a nap and we hung out for a bit.

We went to lunch, headed to base so the boys could buy new uniforms, went shopping at the NEX and then went back to the rooms. Landon really wanted to go swimming so we did that for a few hours. He loved it! We had such a great time and what made it even better was that we had the whole pool to ourselves! Then we went back to our room and took a nap, got dinner then went swimming until 11 at night.

This is us at the pool the first time. I was already getting burnt after a few hours out there.

The next day we headed to Disney World. We went to Animal Kingdom and the main park Magical Kingdom? We had a lot of fun...but we will NEVER go back in the summer time. It was soooooo hot and the lines were way too long. Landon had the time of his life meeting a few of the characters. All he could talk about was wanting to meet Pluto.

Donald, Goofy and Pluto.

We went on a few rides but not much. The main ones were pirates, the tea cups, a safari and we also saw a Nemo musical (Which was AMAZING!).

Waiting to go on the rides.
