The trip we have been waiting for and planning for years had finally arrived.  There had been plenty of preparation go into every detail.  The shoes were waiting by the door we knew there would be lots of walking.  
 We left the winter coats behind and instead opted for the 16 of us to all wear Rider Hoodies on the plane.  I am usually an optimist but I questioned whether we should make the 2.5 hour drive to Saskatoon without a winter coat in the van with the January weather.

 Time to get up and go to the airport.  We were all worried it would be Carson who was left "Home Alone".
 Wheeeww he made it.
 Well no wonder it was 3:30 in the morning.

 Thanks to the camp director Patrick we were there an hour before the window opened.  We were thanking him later when the line was huge and we were first up!
 Try to keep a 2 yr old happy at four in the morning at the airport...
 Play push the baggage cart and try not to take out any one's ankles.

 How about Duck Duck Goose.  
 And run.... Hey why is no one following me?
 Picture time.  All the grand kids soooooo excited to go.

The DSs and DSIs came in handy.


DS and doo doo

 Planning the trip.
 We made it to Minnesota and there is still lots of snow.  Uncle Slim won the pool that I would lose my purse by noon on the first day.  But luckily I found it!

 How big is the plane?

Who wants this DS after I rub a booger on it?
 So cheery!
 So Sleepy.
 Aunty's extreme airport makeover.  The hair.
 Back to the DS
 Here we are in Florida.  Disney this way.......

Everyone was so nice and so happy to see us!
The bus to the hotel was all Mickey.

The first glimpse of our hotel.
Grandma and Grandpa had been waiting anxiously for hours!
It had been a long time since we all saw eachother.

Levi's video recording was a lot like the Blair Witch filming kind of shaky.
Doesn't this just say it all?

The whole gang in the lobby while the parents check in. 
Grandma and Grandpa thought of everything including wine after hours of traveling it hit the spot. 
Everone in the pool!
