Well, I’m officially back home after a family vacation in Orlando – which translates to Disney, Sea World, Aquatica (cool water park near Sea World) and Universal Studios. Oh, and don’t forget the HEAT. Basically, complete and utter exhaustion. Suffice to say the words “family” and “vacation” do not co-mingle in reference to this trip. But, it was all worth it, and I’m sure the memories of exhaustion will fade when I look at pictures like these:
Kate was speechless in meeting all of the Disney princesses. Given how much she talks on a non-stop basis, this was monumental. Ariel was particularly cute. She asked Kate, “Did Ursula the Sea Witch steal your voice too?”
Feeding the dolphins was the highlight of the trip for my boys. I have to admit, it was way cool. I think I loved it every bit as much as they did. Dolphins are just plain cool creatures.
And in the picture below, Kate’s face is painted in case you’re wondering. She didn’t do a DIY make-up thing…
This is probably my favorite picture. Zonked out from a day of magic.
We are all glad to be back home again. Many memories were made, but there is no place like home.
I am working on a long overdue project though. Remember that game – “What doesn’t belong in this picture?” If you guessed “Yellowish Trunk”, you’re a winner!
Stay tuned friends…

Looks like such a fabulous family vacation! I can imagine it was tiring but so worth it! We're already looking forward to bringing our little Peanut to Disney and buying her a princess dress! 😉

It sounds fun (but exhausting!) Your daughter looks like she's in heaven! I would love to feed the dolphins too. That looks so cool!
Have a great day.

We went to Disney last year and it was so wonderful. The girls still talk about it all the time, and Madelyn was only 2 years old when we went. Glad you had fun!!

Glad you made it out alive! We went in July a few years ago and we almost melted, but we made some great memories. Can't wait to see what you do to that trunk.
