We had a lovely vacation in Florida. We spent 7 days at Disney World and 3 days with Charles' family in the Tampa area. I must say, 7 days at Disney is a bit much, but we had a fabulous time! We even squeezed in a day at Universal Studios. The weather was perfect. We had a great time with the family also. We got to see Charles' grandmother, who will be 94 next month and is constantly on the go. The kids had a great time with their cousins, Mallory and Eryn. We even got to see a Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game. Shauna says she wants to move to Florida now!

I want to thank my travel agent (Papa AJ) for helping put together a great trip!

Here are a few pictures to share:

Shauna is thrilled to finally have arrived at Magic Kingdom!

We could have literally touched this giraffe because he was so close to the jeep!

Shauna meets Mary Poppins. She asked Shauna about her "badges" and Shauna corrected her, telling her they are called "pins".

Shauna meets Pinnochio.

Can you believe the size of that Rice Krispie Treat that Ethan got? It was HUGE!!

** Edited to add pictures of Charles and Ethan to prove we were all on vacation together!

Here's most of the family (without Ethan) posing with Mickey!

This is the picture I "snuck" taking of Ethan. It's tough to get a picture of a teenage boy!
Charles got to "act" in the Disaster ride/movie. He played an evil scientist!


  1. Looks like you guys had a fabulous time. Where are pics of Ethan and the husband?

  2. That is Ethan's hand holding the rice krispie treat - does that count? ha...
