Josh, my husband, had to work most of the day and we didn't get started to his mom's house until late. I drove almost all the way there; I stopped at a truck stop in Tyler , TX to get something to eat. When we got to his mom's house, I did one load of wash, packed up our stuff into his mom's car, and I got a little rest before we all headed out to Orlando , FL. His mom drove most of the way down there. Around the morning time, we were in New Orleans , LA. We picked up my sister, Angela, and her son. Kaitlyn had stayed with my parents the week before, so she was in the car with them.

We made a quick stop in Baton Rouge , LA ; the car needed gas and we all took advantage by getting something to drink at the Texaco. We ate breakfast at the Waffle House near Gulfport , MS . I ate two sunny side up eggs, grits, bacon, toast, and glass of Coke. We got cheated, because they charged us an extra meal. We then picked up Angela and her son up. It was just Josh and his mom that was driving all the way down to Orlando , FL. I sat in the back (behind the passenger seat). We stopped in Theordore , AL for lunch. His mom bought her own lunch. I bought Josh a full meal (chicken nuggets), Angela's son a meal (filet-O-Fish), and I had to split mine with Angela (chicken nuggets). My sister didn't bring any money with her on this vacation. We had to take another get gas break in Chattahoochee , FL ; everybody went to the bathroom and got something to drink. This place was full of mosquitoes. Ouch! We arrived a day early, because my mother-in-law didn't need to check-in until the next day. We stayed at the Days Inn in Winter Park . Do I know how to pick the hotels or what!?! LOL I wouldn't suggest staying there; it was away too close to a prison. But--I didn't know this until the next morning...
