Too many pictures, too much to write and too little time. So this will have to do...
My Favorite Pictures Of Our Florida Vacation
Eden giving Aric a massage during our five+ hours in Minneapolis.
After only two hours of sleep the night before...this little nap of mine was well deserved!
Due to Delta's ridiculous "You have to pay 25 bucks for every bag you check" rule, my poor children became pack mules.
The girls running to the monorail on our very first day at Disney World...umm...priceless! (at least that is what A and I keep telling ourselves after we tallied up the bill)
I just love this picture of Maya with Grandma Kathy. Seriously...does this woman look like she has cancer...just so you know, this is what "LIVING" with cancer looks like.
Another one of my faves...this one was taken in "It's a small world" thankfully we didn't get stuck inside for 20 minutes like we did the last time we rode it.
Do I really need to explain why this would be one of my faves...
Camden loved all the characters...
...but he especially loved Minnie.
This is Eden doing the happy dance because we got in the best row for the "Soarin'" ride.
This is what C looked like every time we let him out of the stroller.
I love this picture of Aric and Eeds.
I love that Maya left this note for the housekeeper, I had no idea she had left it until we got home later that night.
If only C would have made it into this picture, then we could have used it for this years Christmas card!
The Nemo show was AMAZING, it really could have been a broadway production.
Camden absolutely loved it! I took this next picture during the show.
Oh how I wish I had a better camera...this shot is so perfect if it weren't so blurry...
I love this picture because this is what Grandma K looked like most of the time we were at Disney, she was always cold.
Another "I wish I had a better camera" shot. This was taken on the Peter Pan ride. It is easily one of my most favorite rides.
I tried so hard to get a shot of the girls watching the fireworks at Magic Kingdom...this was the best one. There were too many people and it was dark. Even though it wasn't exactly what I wanted, I still think it captures their expressions well.
The beach was absolutely gorgeous! I wish the weather had been better, but I still got some pictures that make me happy.
LIKE THIS ONE...
AND THIS ONE...
AND THIS ONE...
AND THIS ONE...
The trip was long and tiresome. We were busy everyday. I even managed to get 21 miles worth of running in while I was there. There is no vacation from marathon training, but running in the warm sun made it feel like a treat instead of a chore.
The traveling itself was unfortunate and too ridiculous to write about. But the 15 hours (one way) of annoyingness was 100% worth it. Grandma K made sure that our every need was met. The girls will treasure their memories of shell searching, and convertible driving with their papa Ron. If Camden could remember, he would remember trying to escape so he could run free and climb onto everything he wasn't supposed to. He would also remember being snuggled enough to last his lifetime.
Disney World was definitely delightful but I am so glad to be home. As far as I am concerned I live in "the happiest place on earth". Well as long as you don't count the hours between 4pm and 6pm...those definitely aren't happy hours around here...but overall, I would say that I've got it pretty darn good.
And that, believe it or not, is the short version. I am saving the other 90 pictures, and obnoxious journaling for my photo book.
