Pics from my vacation and a SP meet-up!

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

I'm back from vacation at Disney World and had such an amazing time! The kids had an absolute blast and made such awesome memories.

I definitely got my exercise in, too. We ended up walking almost 10 miles just on Friday and I had walked over 20,000 steps by noon on Monday! It was worth every step and blister, though! emoticon

Here's a few of my favorite pictures. I just love how they turned out!

This was our first day at the Magic Kingdom. It was about 75 degrees (F) and so nice outside while at home it was snowing. Loved rubbing that in some friends faces! hehe

This one is at Epcot. I LOVE this one!

Here we are at Hollywood Studios....

And my personal favorite is this one at Animal Kingdom.

The kids also got autographs from all of their favorite Disney characters. Those books are their most prized possessions now!

We had such an great time and made some memories that will last a lifetime!

And as if that wasn't enough, I had the chance to have a Spark meet up while I was there!!! One of my good friends Lou, (IUHRYTR), lived just 15 minutes from the airport and was kind enough to meet us there before our flight home! It was like we had been long time friends, we just hit it right off like I knew we would. Such a nice guy and perfect gentlemen he was! Such a pleasure meeting you, Lou!

Life is GOOD! We are SO blessed!

    Great blog and fun pix! Cutest kids too! I have a red head as well...he's 15 with freckles. He asked me years ago.."why MOM? must I have this many freckles??" asking how we could cover them up....he wanted to be like the other kids with a tan...
They're angel kisses I said...he didn't like that answer either tho! :)

Glad you had a great vacation!!

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words well these pictures do more than that. They show a journey that began with one tiny step and look at where you're determination has taken you!

I love you Leslie!

    Great pictures! You all certainly did the full Disney experience - all 4 parks ! I'm impressed, it takes a LOT of energy and stamina to spend 4 days in Disney.

Which was your favorite? And ... which was the kid's favorite?

Haven't been to Disney in about 8-10 years now. My DH & I were considering buying the Fla resident 2-day 2-park pass. After seeing your pics, I think we may go for it.

Glad to hear that Fla was good to you. The weather is amazing right ?

    So much fun and so exciting!!! I want to take Lyss there so bad! She is at the perfect age for it. She of course doesn't remember going to Disneyland when she was 18 months! I was fortunate to go twice to disneyworld when I was a kid and it's a great fun place to go! Love the pics!

    I love DisneyWorld so much! We went in January and before we even left we were plotting on when our next trip would be. I'm glad you guys had such a great time and way to represent Kansas City with your outfits! :)

    It was a great pleasure spending what time we had with you, Ray, Kyler and Kaitlyn. Wish the visit could have been longer. I love the picture of the kids with their faces painted. I still chuckle at the talk I had with them at dinner about dinosaurs when I asked them if they thought dinosaurs liked apples. Kaitlyn promptly informed me that Johnny Appleseed didn't plant apple seeds until AFTER the dinosaurs, so no they couldn't have eaten apples. So funny. Glad you had a good vacation. Looking forward to the next time and a longer visit. You all are good people. emoticon -- Lou
