After a good night's sleep we got another early start on the road (well, Ray and I slept well, and Jayden slept well, but I'm not sure about Katie and Ellie because Jayden slept across the bed with his head on Aunt Ellie and his feet on his Mommy! And they said he kept tossing and turning and flipping around all night long!):
We made another stop at Crackerbarrel for breakfast...
...but we were so early that the doors weren't open yet!
Locked out so Ray and Jayden sat and rested awhile:
And Jayden found other ways to pass the time, trying to scare Mommy:
It was really cold that morning and it looked so nice and warm inside:
Finally the doors opened and I checked out the shopping area again (I love the Crackerbarrel store!):
We were so early that we had the restaurant to ourselves!
What a motley crew!
Back on the road, and we said good-bye to South Carolina and hello to Georgia!
(Thought about Jackie and Marcy as we drove through Georgia!)
('love the Spanish Moss hanging from the trees in Georgia!)
...and more rest stops and letting Jayden run free for awhile...
...and finally Florida (thought about Sheila as we drove past St. Augustine)!
We weren't going to check into our hotel at Disney World until the next day, but we did the next best thing and drove to Downtown Disney for dinner!
We have two favorite restaurants there, Fulton's Crab House...
...and Raglan Road!
We decided to leave Fulton's Crab House for when the rest of the family would be with us (our son Brian was flying down the next morning, and our son Erik and granddaughter Mia were flying down on Sunday), so we went to the Irish restaurant and feasted on Shepherd's Pie, Fish and Chips, and Ray was so happy to have Chicken Pot Pie WITHOUT peas! And Jayden enjoyed his 'Irish' macaroni and cheese:
We spent a few hours enjoying the Downtown area before heading back to our hotel:

When we got back to our hotel we saw this vintage car parked in the lot:
And there was a high school football team sharing our hotel so there were a few of these parked in the lot too!:
