Disney Highlights

Two weeks ago, we returned from our first family trip to Disney!  (I say first, because we will definitely go again sometime - we just have to wait for our feet and our wallets to recover!)  I did an immense amount research and planning for this trip and it really paid off!  We had a wonderful and completely exhausting time!  Here are some of the highlights:

The girls' first flight!  They were all a little nervous, but ended up loving it!

Thanks to my hubby's travel points, we got a sweet suite at the Hilton for about 1/2 price!  Our balcony overlooked this pond where the girls liked to watch the ducks and cranes.

Lots of smiles and quality family time!

Fun rides, more smiles, and family time!

The girls actually got along with each other for the better part of  FIVE WHOLE DAYS!!!!  

Christmas Lights!!  Lots and Lots of Christmas lights!!

The Chocolate Volcano from Rainforest Cafe!  (Almost made up for the mediocre yet expensive meal!)

Character sightings!!  We were disappointed that we didn't see any princesses up close, but we sure got everyone else - Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy, Daisy, Chip and Dale, and some more!

Rachel finally admitted the Disney was FUN!!!!  (Although, she still won't admit that it was better than school.)

One more highlight - we got our Christmas card picture!  You will have to wait for that one, though! ;-)

A vacation? AND an opportunity to get a Christmas card picture? That's gold right there! I would have staged the entire trip just to get a decent picture of all three kids that didn't require photoshopping.

Actually, I'm a Christmas card putz. Perhaps I use the fact that I can't get pictures of my children all looking in the same direction as an excuse to not send cards.

Glad you had a great trip!
