Disney. The first time I went was twenty years ago. Because we didn’t get to go ask kids and my sister and her new hubby didn’t really get a honeymoon, we went together. I’m not going to embarrass us by scanning in and posting those pics but the trip was awesome. In the airport on the way back, the K-Man told me he wanted to marry me (he changed his mind later but that’s another blog). It was amazing to experience it together for the first time.
Since then, the CB’s have been on a Disney Cruise and to Disneyland (that trip will forever be remembered as the one where our hotel caught on fire). It was fun, but not the same as experiencing it with my sister and her kids. A little over ten years ago, both of our families went to Disneyworld together. My sister’s son and Rosie are the same age so they were five at the time. My niece was two. I’m not going to lie and say that it was all fun and games because the kids were so little, but it was a great vacation. Take a peek.
Sadly, this trip was way before blogging so I don’t have a bunch of pics of all the kids together. I will tell you this. They got along and that in itself was magical.
We all had a blast! Unfortunately, this picture was taken off a CD. Know what that means? They lied to us a decade ago when we paid to have our pics burnt on a CD. They don’t last forever. Boo.
Three years later, we headed back for a very hot visit over 4th of July. This time, the kids could actually go on some rides and we made it to watch fireworks. Instead of matching Gymboree outfits like the first trip, they wore Cinderella dresses and met Sleeping Beauty.
They also had some sassy attitudes at times if you can’t tell by this one…
My mom joined us on this vacation which was crazy because kid’s stuff isn’t really her thing but you know what? She had so much fun. It was awesome to hear her squeal with delight in the Bug’s Life ride.
We’re heading back to Disney today with our teenagers.
Talk about a totally different trip. The girl’s no longer want to be princesses and the characters aren’t as magical but there’s no better place to vacation than the happiest place on earth. Can’t wait.
If you’ve been to Disney, what’s your favorite thing to do?
