Wednesday, September 2nd:
I worked almost a full day at work. Mom, dad, and Kaitlin drove me to the airport in Sacramento (they then went to IKEA). Leg 1: SMF to SEA where I'd stay the night near the airport in Seattle and meet up with Dennis in the morning before heading to Orlando. Hotel in Seattle...interesting... Hey, what can I say? It was cheap and had a free shuttle service. Unfortunately for me, there was a couple on the other side of the wall that went at it like rabbits late into the night. Lovely.
Thursday, September 3rd:
Got to airport around 6:45am. Dennis was already there, his flight landed early. Checking baggage and going through security took forever. Finally got through. Meet up. Found
A 6 hour flight later and extra loop around Orlando we finally landed. Dennis' sister was waiting to pick us up. Oh, but did you know that when there is lightening all ground crew goes for cover for 5 minutes? With each new flash the time starts over...45 minutes later we were finally let of the plane. Grabbed my bag and headed out into the first taste of humidity. Headed to Jeannette and Russell's house, aka hotel #1, for 4 nights. Dinner, catching up (or listening in for me), relaxing, bed.
Friday, September 4th:
After we had had enough of Epcot, we drove around. We tried to find an orchid garden place, but they were closed. Maybe for good, the place looked kinda sketchy. Then we drove around some more. Got a little lost. Thank goodness for Carmen Garmin (thanks Kaitlin!). Friday night ritual in hotel #1 is guitar hero while Jeannette is at work. So

Sunday, September 6th:
Sunday we puttzed around with Jeannette. We went to Prime Outlets that put any other Prime Outlet to shame. Cartier. Dooney and Burke. Coach. Burton and Northface...in Florida? After using the outlets for their air conditioning we went on a quick trip to IKEA. Yep, that's right, IKEA. Then...well, I don't remember. We eventually made it back to hotel #1. Maybe more guitar hero? I know sleep happened.

'Cause I'm tired and I can continue a story if I want to.
