Long lost entry...(plus more on Disney World!)

I know. It's been too long. I don't know what my problem is and why I can't seem to put a few words down now and then. But, instead, I wait and wait and then I have entirely too many things to say and then it just seems harder and harder to write about everything.

So, trying to get back in the swing of things...because I miss writing and updating and sharing about what's going on in our lives.

I can't believe it's been almost two months since our trip to Disney World. It was a really fun trip, made all the more memorable, because cousin Corrie lives in Orlando, works at Disney and was able to spend some time with us each day! We are so thankful for her, helping us, and guiding us through the parks, etc. She was able to get us into the parks each day for (can I even say this?), FREE! I didn't even realize how much of a savings this was until after we got back home! THANK YOU CORRIE!

B was in Orlando for work, left on Tuesday, and then the girls and I followed on Thursday. We stayed at our timeshare, The Fountains, right on International Drive and close to the parks. We got settled in and then met some of B's coworkers for dinner at Downtown Disney. It was a nice evening, but we were tired. The girls fell asleep on the way back to our place.

We were up and at 'em on Friday, met Corrie at Downtown Disney, where we then proceeded to follow her to our parking area (free parking for us too) and then we went to Magic Kingdom here we come...
It turned out to be a great day, a little cloudy, but nice, and I LOVED that it was cloudy, otherwise, it would've been too HOT! The girls did fantastic! They loved all the shows, the rides. They liked SEEING the characters, but not MEETING the characters. We met Mickey Mouse and that was it! Sydney's favorite thing was The Teacups:

I LOVE the teacups, Momma!

and Lindsey's favorite was the Little Mermaid show at MGM Studios. I loved all the shows too. I think I liked Finding Nemo the best.

Here is Dad and Lindsey on our first ride, the Rollercoaster!

Our first ride...Goofy's roller coaster!

The second day Corrie took us to Animal Kingdom and while the park was fun, the day (weather) was miserable! Crowds, HOT, HUMID, ready for a storm and we did get a downpour on our way out of the park! We were soaked and had to dry our shoes in the dryer when we got back to the condo.

The girls loved going on SAFARI though...

On the third day, we headed back to Magic Kingdom for most of the day and then over to MGM Studios for a bit at the end of the day. It was a sunny day, less crowds, as it was Sunday and I think everyone was flying home.

Waiting for Bear!

They really had a great time seeing Bear, Stanley, Jo Jo and Pooh!

It was really the perfect trip for us, just the right length to give us a taste of Disney! The girls were troopers and walked all three days. We didn't even need a stroller! WOW! Of course, Corrie has invited us back anytime and we'll probably be taking her up on the offer! Thanks again Corrie! We miss you and love you!
