My less than 84 hour vacation...

You might have remembered there was a post back at the end of February about an upcoming mini-vacation.  Well the vacation happened and I am back, and where did we go?  Well I will see if you can guess...

It's so fluffy, I'm gonna die!  (Just for you Amanda)

CJ and the Hogwarts Express

Love for Dr. Seuss!  

The Cat in the Hat

The Titanic Experience (had to get a little nerd activity in too)

If you have not figured it out yet, this will be a dead giveaway to where we went :)

Woody made out of Legos--so cool!

Even better, snow white made out of Legos

CJ practicing being a princess

We ended up getting to Disney the DAY before the flower and garden festival, so there were beautiful flowers everywhere!  But many of them were hidden so we did not get to see all of them!

The Lion King

The Giant Golf Ball Thingie, as we so affectionately called it when we were kids (aka EPCOT)

My favorite princess--Snow White

Snow White in Flower form

Lady & The Tramp

Hollywood Studios (formally MGM)

This is a panoramic of the new part of Harry Potter World at Universal

Day by the pool, coincidentally, this was the day it snowed about 6 inches in Richmond, we were by the pool with 80+ degree temperatures.



Our car design at Test Track

I had to peek between some tall bushes to get this picture for Corbin, but its a Mater made out of flowers!

Thinking of you (all back home)

OH No!  A dinosaur
So if you have not figured it out, we went to Orlando, Florida.  We left early (think 5am) on Sunday morning and arrived in Florida by 9am and got to the park about an hour later.  Then we did some park hoping and some pool relaxing over the next 4 days and left about 8pm on Wednesday night to get home.  After a short layover in Atlanta (literally got off the plane, moved terminals, went to the bathroom and were boarding again), we then flew back to Richmond to arrive about midnight.  Let me tell you Thursday was a rough work day but it was worth it for a few days away!  All in all, it was a fun-budget friendly trip!  Where are you planning to travel to next?  Any mini or extended vacations in your future?

For me, I am happy to report I was in town last weekend and plan to be in town this weekend--it is the first time for 2014 that I will be home two weekends in a row and I am really looking forward to it!
