We Got Our Day

Ever since we went to Disneyworld last November and left the kids at home with Grandma and Grandpa Shaver, I knew I wanted to take them.  We had big plans for another trip to Florida coinciding with a work conference for Eric, but alas, the conference ended up coinciding with the due date of new baby Horne 2.0 (like, exactly). 

I'd signed us up and we completed a day of service as part of Disney's "Give a Day, Get a Day" program in anticipation of Florida, so we shifted gears a bit and decided to use our free day** at Disneyland (where we could get and stay much cheaper). 

**A BIG thank you goes to Aunt Anna who babysat while we volunteered.  We couldn't have gotten our free day without her**

Special thanks also goes to Priceline for a killer deal on a hotel, Southwest for cheap plane tickets, and Doubletree for a free shuttle (saving us $$$ on a rental car and parking, not to mention not having to figure out where we were going).  Also, thank you to Maggie and Amos for both being under 3 and free at Disneyland.  I am not sure there is a thriftier Disney vacation out there... 

Another post (about the good stuff) coming soon...
