An anniversary of sorts...

This time last year, I was running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to finish getting ready to leave. It was a trip that we had looked forward to for many months. We took the kids to Walt Disney World for the first time.

The trip started off a little rough. We were delayed & didn't get to Orlando until well after midnight. But, after we arrived, it was a week of many magical moments.



Like meeting Mickey for the first time...



Minnie...



Mickey ears desserts at Chef Mickey's...



seeing Cinderella's castle...



riding Buzz Lightyear over and over and over...



hanging out with Daddy...



watching fireworks from in front of the castle...



just being plain "Goofy"...



eating delicious food (this was at Whispering Canyon at Wilderness Lodge)...



attending "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party" (Sam did have football pants to complete his football player "costume", but he refused to wear them.)...



watching parades, including the Boo to You parade...



meeting Buzz Lightyear...



spending a week in a stroller...poor Grace!!



riding the Barnstormer once or 20 times...



until Sam discovered the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad...



Sam decorated his own cupcake at Garden Grill in Epcot...



got dizzy on the tea cups with Momma...



and watched 2 fireworks shows in one night...including this "special" show they did for a special event.



We had a wonderful time and have already been back once. And we plan to go on a Disney cruise next year. I hope we don't outgrow Disney for a long time.

A year later - this weekend - we're doing something special but in a different way. I'll tell you about that later.

Happy Weekend!
