Disney Detox

We are home from Disney and slowing getting things unpacked and put away. I'm on load 6 of 8 for laundry. I even snuck in a quick trip to Target to pick up a few necessities. We're headed out again on Friday for a wedding, so no need to stock the house just yet.

It's good to be back in our own beds, but the kids have been heartbreaking. A sample of our conversations:

Morgan: "Mommy, I don't see the Magic Kingdom."

Mommy: "No, honey, the Magic Kingdom is in Florida, it's far far away, and we can't see it from here."

Tanner: "Can we go to Florida?"

Morgan: "We're going back to Florida in TWO WEEKS."

They've talked about the Princesses and characters all day today. We've also discussed with them multiple times that we can't spend all of our time in Florida, but they really don't get the whole concept of money yet.

We do hope to return to Disney sometime in the future - hopefully during an even less busy time of the year - maybe when it's even a bit cooler. The kids had so much fun, and it let Randy & I act like a kid for a little bit, too.

I'll close with one of my favorite pictures of the kids - we took this one on the play area at the hotel just hours before we left. Excuse Morgan's hair...I didn't pull it back in a barrette that day.

It sounds like y'all had a fabulous time! I can't wait to take my son next summer! I think he'll be just old enough to get caught up in everything. My daughter loves going, and we'd like to get her there one more time before she starts to outgrow it!

Thanks for sharing! I'm definitely going to take some of your trip and apply it to ours!!
