as you might have noticed, i had about a week of guest bloggers. i was at the happiest place on earth with my family! :)

we met lots of characters ... 

went on some fun rides and tried lots of cool things! 
(including the dexcom that elisa let me borrow for the week!!) 

riding a segway is not as easy as it looks!

and of course, we had to check out some of the sweet treats:

the whole week was great, and diabetes-wise, it was almost perfect. a couple ALMOST no-hitter days (that was pretty awesome) and being able to tell what certain rides and snacks did to my blood sugar (thank you dexcom), it was so helpful to have that! 

not to mention the special guest pass. people told me i should get one when we went and it would help us avoid lines. i was not sure at first, but wow, it was amazing. we still had to wait in line of course, but the pass allowed us to go in the 'fast pass' lines and had much shorter wait periods. that meant less time standing in the heat (which does make my blood sugar rise), and more time for fun! it's a nice little thing that disney does. 

i think i saw only two insulin pumps on other people when i was there. both women. i was always on my way somewhere so i didn't say anything to them. but i knew we had a presence! :)

i would like to thank ALL my guest bloggers: kim, martin, jessica, bob, kerri, mike, briley and sarah ... i greatly appreciated the awesome posts you wrote for me about traveling!
