We Made It!!
We are here in Florida, and everyone is happy and healthy. Obviously blogging is not at the top of the list, but I have a few minutes while the girls are napping to check in. We had a very smooth flight out on wednesday with two healthy girls. I thought I was going to have to de-plane when we stopped in Vegas because Amelia was not digging the plane ride, but then she settled in and kicked back. Whew! Hadley was a champion super star. She entertained herself the entire way here and never once asked "how much longer"? So that was great. We've managed to hit The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom over the past three days. The weather is perfect. Sunny and mid 80's. We are sun kissed and nice and relaxed. The beauty of being here for 9 days is that we are able to spend about three or four hours at a park and then head back to the condo and rest. This way we don't get too overwhelmed and we can pace things very nicely.
So far I find The Magic Kingdom much less magical than Animal Kingdom and Epcot, both of which I love. The world showcase in Epcot is my favorite. We had French pastries last night while we watched the Illuminations show, and it was perfect. Today we were able to see chimps, and gorillas up close and personal in the Animal Kingdom. Amazing. I'll have to add photos when I get home so you can see.
Today is Amelia's first birthday!! We've had a great day together. I think she grew up more last night. You can go visit Polka Dots and Pansies for an update on her.
Until next week.....
