Vacation Hangover

So, if you're new to this game, we just returned (last night!) from a Make a Wish trip to Florida. Gabby (this kid here) was granted a wish, and wished to be friends with Cinderella in the giant castle.

I'm a little conflicted on how much to blog about our trip, vs how much would be incredibly boring, but I kind of don't want to forget things, and I kind of want to put some of the details out there for other Wish families looking for information.

But it's my blog, so I'll probably blog it in pieces, and you can skip the boring parts, eh?

After I sort through the thousands of pictures.

Here's a few to start...

Gabby, you're laying on the floor. "I know. I'm tired of standing". Okay, then.

The quick and dirty recap: Limo service Thursday morning for our 10 minute drive to John Wayne airport, flight delays led to a 4 hour later arrival (boo) at Give Kids the World Village. A few hours of sleep, met up with my brother-in-law and his daughter, spent the early part of the day in Animal Kingdom, then dinner with Cinderella and Prince Charming at 1900 Park Fare, then closed down Magic Kingdom. Saturday, Universal Studios Islands of Adventures with my sister-in-law and mother-in-law. Early night in. Sunday, Downtown Disney and a quick run to the outlet mall, then the afternoon/evening exploring the Village. Monday: Breakfast at Akershus in EPCOT with the Princesses, then reserved viewing for Illuminations. Tuesday: Magic Kingdom. Wednesday: Breakfast at Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary. Fly home. Today: Work.

Missing from that week? Running.

That was nice.

A trip to WDW has no boring parts, IHMO :)

What a great trip. I must say the transition from Chef Mickey's on Wed to Work on Thursday sounds like a tough one! Glad the trip was fun. Looks like Gabby had a great time:-)

I am so glad you guys had a good trip. Undecided, but I think I like the picture of her with the giraffe the best :D

There are hardly words. Every picture looks amazing. It's probably still pretty surreal!

Looks like Gabby had a blast! Good for all of you! Including a break from running for mom.

So glad she got to have this trip.

The picture in the limo is cracking me up.

How weird am I that I look at the Cinderella and think that's not the same one. Anyways, wasn't it fun? I loved every minute and I did no running either. You'll have time to run at home.
