New Year Glitter Graphics

We left on the 27th, as planned. Rain to Windsor/Detroit and a 2.5 hour wait at the border. The boys were bored at that point, but soon settled in once we were moving. We stopped for the night in Newport, KY and in the morning went to the Newport Aquarium on the Levee. We had a delicious breakfast at Mrs. Fields and lunch at Johnny Rockets, a 50s type diner. The boys enjoyed seeing what hamburger joints were like way back in Grandma and Grandpa's day.

We are currently staying about an hour from Disneyworld. We chose not to attend Disney on New Year's Eve because of wall to wall crowds. Instead we stayed in the hotel, had a swim and watched movies on the boys' portable DVD player. Tomorrow we plan to go to Sea World.

Just wanted to update everyone and let you all know that we are fine and have arrived safely. I will try to give you and update from time to time. I also want to check and see how everyone is doing, but computer time is limited here.

Happy New Year to all my friends and readers. May each of you receive abundant blessings, good health, prosperity and the love of family and friends. Talk to you soon. ~Blessings, Mary~
