I Need a Vacation...

...from my "vacation!" I have some catching up to do, but wanted to go ahead and post about our trip to Disney! Whew...I'm exhausted! We got to Orlando last Saturday, the 19th. Tristan had a double ear infection, and screamed the entire 7 hour drive down!
Sunday, we started off fresh and excited at Animal Kingdom.

Monday, it was on to the Magic Kingdom:

We got to Magic Kingdom around 9:15 am, took a lunch break at the condo, and came got back to from Magic Kingdom around 11:30 pm! Lots of fun rides, parades, and a fireworks show.

Tuesday was "break" day! However, we swam, played putt putt and went to eat at Bahama Breeze (not much of a "break" if you ask me)!

Wednesday we were off to Hollywood Studios (this was my favorite park)! Indiana Jones stunt show, car stunt show, Beauty and the Beast, Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area!

Thursday we headed to Sea World, which was so fun! We watched a dolphin show and then the "Believe" Killer Whale show. They were both amazing. We got up close to sharks, dolphins, otters and seals, and got to touch sting rays.

(Thomas got a bunch of "War Eagles" for wearing his red-neck cut off shirt too)

On our last day, Friday, we relaxed (or as relaxed as you can get with 2 little boys) by the pool (really, in the pool). Then Friday night, Thomas and I went to a Braves spring training game. That was lots of fun, and we enjoyed sitting on the grass hill to watch the game.

Saturday, we drove back, dodging thunderstorms the whole way. Once home, and exhausted, the storms caught up with us. We spent an hour and a half in the bathroom between 2:30 AM and 4:00 AM due to tornadoes!

What a great trip! Thanks to my Dad for letting us use his timeshare, and to my Mom for being Tristan's Nanny all week! It'll be a at least 6 years before we muster up the energy to do that again!


  1. FUN!! L would be sooo jealous! She keeps asking, "Will y'all please stop having babies so we can go to Disney World??!!" Bert told her we can't go until B is at least 3. :)
    Glad y'all had fun!!

  3. Wow, what an awesome trip! We went to Disneyland a couple of years ago and I remember just falling into bed every night, so exhausted!

  4. Wow, I'm tired just reading that. I know it's so fun when you're there but I know you were exhausted. :) So glad yall had a good trip and that Tristan started feeling better, no fuN! :)
