I decided sometime in February that we were going to take a Disney trip during our schools' May Intersession. We finished our countdown on Saturday April 23rd and I surprised the kids with their Disney goodies for the looonnnggg car ride.

Then at 8 pm we we were ready to hit the road. I had to try out the new selfie stick. 

We got in the car and headed out. I was hoping the kids would fall asleep within an hour since it was already passed their normal bedtime of 7 pm. I was so wrong. I know it was mostly the excitement of the trip keeping them awake but they had a really hard time getting comfortable in the car. Our first stop was Navarre, FL. Only 12 hours away. 

Hank was such a trooper. This was about 6 am and we were only an hour away from Navarre. Look how exhausted he looks! We were able to do our 12 hour drive in about 11 hours including gas/pee break stops. 

We finally made it to Navarre at 7:20 am and had breakfast at IHOP. The kids were able to sleep in the car so look at those smiley faces. I slept in the car too but it was in 1-2 hour spurts so I didn't feel completely rested. After breakfast we headed to our hotel to catch a few hours of sleep. 

Beach Day coming next!
