We just returned from a week’s vacation in Orlando with all these people.
These people being my parents, my sister and her family, and me, Jeff & the kids. Yes, 11 of us in all.
During FLORIDA’S SPRING BREAK.
My prayer all week was, “Lord, give me strength.”
Followed closely by, “And help me not to freak out at the Happiest Place on Earth.”
Because besides the fact that my husband is not in the above picture, neither are the over-100,000 other people that just happened to be at Disney World on the same day we were there.
Actually, we really had fun. Both my kids and my sister’s kids are at really fun ages (read, no nap times required) and get along really well together. Aren’t they so cute?!
(My sister and I have decided that cousins are way more fun than sisters. Because although NOW I really love having a sister, we were not always so keen on the idea when we were younger. HA.)
Have I mentioned recently on here how my parents are so amazing? Well, they are. They footed the bill for about 95% of this wonderful vacation and I sincerely hope they know what a gift this was to be all together in Orlando for a week.
However, I may be able to save them some money next time around.
Because this happened….
On the last day of the trip I asked my son which one of the three Disney Parks we went to (Epcot, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios) was his favorite. He took a minute to think through his answer and came up with this gem…
My favorite was Epcot. – Carter
Oh, and why is that? – Me
(insert drumroll please)
Because of the cookies you gave me in the Test Track line. – Carter
(Silence and an incredulous look from me)
Actually, I liked it all – Carter.
So, there you have it, folks.
Next time we will be going to the park down the road with a box of Enjoy Life Chocolate Brownie Cookies.
