And so it begins...

We arrived in Orlando Saturday evening and checked into the hotel in time to go to dinner and let the kids unwind in the pool. It's hot, but not too bad. My wife would respectfully disagree.

Sunday was my only free day before the festivities begin, so we did what any good tourist to Florida should do -- we went to GatorLand! Lots of fun watching gator wrestin', gator shows and eating gator nuggets. Well, I would have liked to try gator nuggets, but I couldn't talk my kids into it and my wife said she wouldn't ever let me kiss her again.

Last night I joined the Krewe at Cricketer's Arms Pub (where I'm going tonight, too). It was good to finally meet the people I've been chatting with on the Extracurricular Activities group on Connect. Good scotch and beer, too. :)

This morning I checked in for TechEd and picked up my bag. I have a security pre-conference session with Marcus Murray at 9:30am. I'm really looking forward to this, he's awesome! Sounds like a lot of people signed up for the Windows Server 2008 pre-con session, too.

I'll try to give reviews on sessions as they happen, but may end up writing just a rollup at the end of the day if I don't have time.
