Stir Crazy

If you know me well, you know I hate cold weather.  How I lived in Ohio for 10 years I will never know, but I hate cold weather.  Ryan and I went to the Bahamas a few years ago.  I loved it there.  It was beautful, the weather was beautiful and I enjoyed how they just didn't make a big deal out of things there.  You could walk right up to government officials, to what is like their secret service.  People there just don't care about that stuff.  If you know Ryan, then you know he's a dork and he loves government things.  So we went and chatted it up with their "secret service".  We learned a lot about their country and in the end, they were offering us citzenship!  Seriously!  I was so ready to go, but Ryan, no way.  So here I sit now, iced in my house, dreaming of the days in the Bahamas. 
So to get my mind off of this cold weather, I booked our trip to Disney today.  Yes, we are taking the kids.  Yes, we are flying with them.  All of them.  My kids are actually good little travelers.  We have traveled a lot with them and they always handle it better than we ever expect.  We also plan, plan, plan.  Well Ryan is the planner.  And we take a crew with us always to make sure that the trip is smooth.  Luci will be joinng Ryan and I to Tucson in a week and a half.  We are going to visit a good friend of mine that I grew up with.  She's one of those friends that we don't have to talk all the time and we just pick right back up.  I absolutely adore her and can't wait to see her and her family.  Then in April we are going to Ohio.  This trip however will be a new one for us.  Me, I am pushing for us to drive...Ryan, he's pushing for us to fly.  The kicker, this will be the first trip that we take the kids to and from there alone.  We are meeting friends there, but we will be solo for the trek there.  I am game...if it's in the car...we will see who wins this battle!
