Good morning everyone! We're back from vacation and it was fantastic! It was a whirlwind, but so so much fun! I want to share a few pictures with you today of our trip and then I promise I'll be back to normal crafty business tomorrow :)
We took the girls to Disney World in Orlando, Florida this year. It's been our plan for several years to take them when they were this age. 1) because Abie is so old she's completely annoyed with us yet and 2) Landry is old enough that she'll get something out of it. Mike had been to Disneyland in California, but I had never been to either, so when I walked down Main Street for the first time and saw the castle, it was pretty cool :)
We rode a lot of rides! I think the longest we waited was 30 minutes. The look of sheer joy on the girls faces was something we experiences all week long :)
This picture is for Tracy :) This was taken at Epcot, in their version of Canada. Ha! In each of the countries represented in Epcot they have people working from those countries. We were talking to one of the girls from Canada and she said they come to Disney and work for either a year or two, I can't remember, and live in one of two complexes. So when you visit Germany, at Epcot, the guy ringing you up, is really from Germany. Huh.
This picture was taken at Hollywood Studios. Abie has never been much of a thrill seeker, but she really spread her wings on this trip. Starting with this ride! We were so proud of her that she wanted to ride the rides, then that way Mike and I had someone to ride with too :)
We saw lots and lots of fireworks. Which was awesome. You can tell Landry is a 4th of July baby, the noise didn't even phase her :)
The girls got to meet lots of characters!
Before we knew it our week was over and it was time to head home. But we had one more surprise up our sleeve for the girls. They had never been to the beach before. We drove about an hour from Orlando and spent some time on the beach. When we saw the looks on their faces the first time they saw the ocean and then the first time they stepped on the sand and in the water, it was something I'll never forget.
By Saturday, we were all ready to get back home. When we saw the arch, we were all excited to be back in Missouri, but we still had a three hour drive to Kansas City. We made it safe, started laundry and got everything unpacked. Now it's back to our normal life, but we have some AWESOME memories to hold onto.
Hope you have a great Monday and thanks for stopping by today :) See you tomorrow!!
