Unexpected Magical Memories

As I loaded my iPod with music in preparation for our ‘Summer Road Trip’, I knew my mother, my sister, and I were going to be spending many hours together in the van. Our starting point was Tempe, Arizona, heading for Disney World (Yes!) in Orlando, Florida via mini stops in Austin, Texas, and New Orleans, Louisiana. After celebrating my birthday in the grand style of Disney, we would be taking a “slight detour” through Wisconsin to visit with relatives, before heading back to Arizona. Evidently my mother wasn’t very good at geography.
