It's 7:40 and I'm sitting in the hotel lobby in Kansas City on the computer!!!!!! Can you blieve it? YES!!!!! Couldn't resist. World's of Fun doesn't open until 10 a.m..

None of us hardly sleep last night. I thought Aric would be out the minute his head hit the pillow but I think he was too worked up. Mickey & I couldn't sleep because the 2 of them keep flipping!!! We turned off lights at 10. Gave up and turned the TV back on until 11:30. Sometime after that I finally got to sleep and then woke up. I thought surely it's 5 a.m. Looked at the clock 1:44 p.m. I finally got up at 6 after just laying there waiting for 6 to go down for the continental breakfast and COFFEE!!!

Thanks to you that left comments on Suzy Blue. For those of you that talk about being afraid of heights. The lift off in a hot-air balloon is so gentle that you are off the ground and looking down before you even know it. Sometimes the landings can be a little challenging, as Linds commented in hers, but even that is pure fun.

Better get off and back to Mickey and the kids but I couldn't resist saying "Hi" since I was able.

Big (((((hugs))))) to you all. Susan

P.S. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Leigh Ann (hug)

You are too funny. You missed us didn't you?

Sorry Susan, I still wouldn't get in that balloon. There is NO WAY I'd be looking down! NEVER!

Have fun and enjoy every minute away.

I hope you all have a blast on this trip, Susan!!

We are the same way whenever we stay in hotels. Everyone is too excited to sleep. We're going to Disneyland in a couple of weeks and I am not sure those kids will sleep a wink the entire time!!
