Last day - and now we're home.

We had a really fun time in Orlando. We went to Downtown Disney this morning. We did some shopping and ate lunch, and then we came home. Our trip was uneventful which is all you ever hope for a road trip, and now we're home, unpacked, laundry started and relaxed. Good night!

What a trip!

We had such a good trip to Disney! It has only been a full two days, but we packed a lot into that time.

Yesterday we went to Magic Kingdom. It was nice, but it was also really crowded. There were a lot of lines. But we made the most of it, and MK loved showing T. Willy around since it was pretty much his first time there. The guys got tired around 5:30, so they went back to the room, and MK and I stayed at the park. Then we decided to have a little adventure.

I like food. I readily admit that. I had heard about something called "Dole Whip," and I wanted to try it. It's available at Magic Kingdom, but it was really cold there, so we hopped the monorail and went to the Polynesian hotel and got some there. It was as good as I'd hopes. Basically it was soft serve, but it's pineapple. I loved it.

Then we went to the hotel. We charged our phones and bundled up, and MK and I let the boys sleep, and we went back to Magic Kingdom because it was open till 1:00 a.m. The lines were lower, so we did a few things we didn't get to during the day. We stayed until about 12:30, and it was worth it. The guys slept well and enjoyed dinner together. It was a lot of fun for all of us.

Today we went to Epcot. We had a great time. My favorite is always the countries. There was an interactive scavenger hunt that T. Willy really enjoyed. We rode and walked and played. Whew. We are tired. We made a lot of fun memories, and we are ready to go home. We are going to Downtown Disney before we leave tomorrow, so the fun never ends!!!

We're here!

Disney was offering some good FL resident deals, so we took advantage of them and came to Disney for the weekend! We drove down last night, and now I'm up early and everyone else is sleeping.

We are planning to see Magic Kingdom today and Epcot tomorrow. Then we have passes for two more days which we will use later.

We haven't been here since T. Willy was a year old, so it's pretty much the first time for him. MK has been so great about telling him the fun things to look for and do. I'll be sure to post some pictures of our weekend!

Too fast. Too too fast.

My sister in law and niece stopped by today on their way to a camp in Alabama to do some work. We snapped some pictures before they left, and then MK found a picture of the two girls from long ago. I am so proud of the young women they've become, but I'm also missing those sweet little girls.

Something to blog about

We've been busy and sick, so it's good to have something fun to post.

MK has a new boyfriend. They've known each other since preschool, but he moved, and they'd lost touch until recently. He seems like a really nice guy, and he treats her really well which is a plus for us. He also likes cars and football - that doesn't hurt either.

One thing he likes to do is surprise MK. Tonight he pulled off a great one. Around here, it isn't just to get asked to prom - it's how you get asked that is a big deal too. So he arranged this and pulled it off tonight.

He had another friend take MK out to get something to eat. While they were zone, Z came over and set out tealight candles to spell PROM. They wouldn't stay lit on the porch, so we moved into the garage. The Big Man, T. Willy and I helped, and that made it a lot more fun. He had flowers and waited for her in the garage. When she came home, I had one big line. "Before you sit down, will you get my purse out of the garage?" And she obliged and got a big surprise. It was a lot of fun to be a part of it, and she was so excited and happy!!!
