My Flordia Adventure Part 1- Friday

Friday August 31st I woke up at 2am in the morning to drive to Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee to start my journey to Florida. I got there about 3:45am and headed toward security. Well did you know security does not open until 4:15am? I did not know that either. So I went and had some yummy Quizno's for breakfast.

Finally got through security and got to the gate and waited. My flight was to be at 5:50am and we started boarding at 5:20. And we stopped boarding at 5:30 because a tire was low. Needless to say we were not going anywhere at 5:50am. Everyone got in line to change flights because we were going to Atlanta and most people had connecting flights. I did not change my flight to Tampa until they delayed the flight to 8am. I was originally on the 11am flight in Atlanta to Tampa but changed it to 12:06pm with a back up on the 2:20pm. The gave us soda and we got $6 meal tickets and our flight finally left at 8:30am. I sat next to a very nice lady originally from Louisiana and we talked the whole flight. When I got to Atlanta I had to run from terminal B to A and they were calling Final Boarding when I arrived at the gate at 11:45am. I barely made it!

When I got to Tampa I used my food voucher to get some Starbucks and the met my cousins Megan and Molly who were there to pick me up. We headed back to Megan's to meet up with my other cousin Caleb and Megan's daughter Gabby. We then went to Goodwill and I got a dress and a Tampa Bay Rays shirt.

At Target we all got matching hats to wear to Islands of Adventure. I got a Raymond mini pillowpet that looks like this:
and randomly a Phllies Chase Utly shirt.
Megan got a GPS at Best Buy named Lola the Magellan that would cause much issues that weekend. Well that's all for Friday stay tuned for Islands of Adventure Saturday!
