OUR FAMILY VACATION

Two weeks ago we set out on a 25 1/2 hour road trip to Orlando, Florida, where my parents have a timeshare.  So we left a Thursday night at 6:00 and rolled into Orlando Friday night at 8:30.  The drive actually wasn’t all that bad, the kids were AMAZING, it was just the staying awake part that was the toughest:)

The kids were so excited to get in the pool!

and turned into little fish!

It was such a fun age to take them.  They loved swimming with Grandma Sue…

But the hot tub was still their favorite!

Silly kids:)

We were so happy to be able to miss what we thought would be the last snow storm of the season, and sit beach side instead..

If we would have known what last night had in store for us, we would’ve stayed down there!

The water was freezing and it was only about 70 this day, needless to say it was just us and one other couple from Wisconsin daring to go anywhere near the water that day.

I’m pretty in love with this little family of mine:)

And since we didn’t have a baby yet, we decided this was the year to do Disney!

As Ryan likes to say, we weren’t the only ones there:)

But it was still pretty magical regardless.

Especially the princesses.

This girl was in.her.glory.

She got to meet Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, and Belle as well.  Prince Tate was a little less than impressed:)

We were able to ride almost everything we wanted to, but after 11 hours at the park and only spending $14.75 the whole time there, we were ready to call it a day.

We took a little detour on the way home and hit up North Carolina, where Ryans Sister and brother-in-law moved to last year.  It was so great to let the kids play with their cousins.  We seriously didn’t see them the whole time we were there!  And we were blessed with a great visit as well!

It was a great trip!  And now back to reality.  And a lot of snow.  Just a reminder that Whimsy is coming in one week from today, April 24th and 26th from 9-3.  We’d love to see you there!  And are saying a prayer that the snow is gone for good by then!

    Great trip! I just made a similar drive back in February: Omaha to Miami (and returned by way of Key West. THAT was a long trip!). Sounds like you had a blast, though!
