Yes, "Dreams Really Do Come True" ~ My dream of going to Disney World as a complete family did indeed happen this past week :) I stopped as often as I could to cherish every moment (in between the "screaming mimi" fits, the whinning, the bathroom "breaks") - all kidding aside it was a special and memorable family vacation.

~Magic Kingdom~

That's my girl
still holding her
bunny pocketbook!

I quickly took these photos on our way
out of Magic Kingdom . . .
when I realized our professional photos
had come out awful!

Yes, we vacationed at Disney World!. It was 7 days of fun, rides, walking, characters galore and eating out; and we were so very happy to walk into our home LATE last night (1:30am to be exact! Our flight was delayed) - greeted by our lovable Penny!
Wow, what a vacation!
I was a bit worried at about how Mia would react to a plane ride and "living" out of a condo-like home for a week. It was a rough start - she was thrown off a bit - but, when we opted to use her familiar stroller instead of renting a double stroller (Eddie really needed to sit a bit too) in the parks, things were better - she was able to nap a bit.
Right now, I'm catching up on laundry (the worst part of being away) and busy getting the house straightened up; but I will leave you with a funny "Mia-ism" : everytime we saw Mickey Mouse, a stuffed toy Mickey, and even when we met the big guy himself; she would make a monkey sound ~ she seriously thought Mickey MOUSE was a monkey :)

Yes, they really do come true!
I can't wait to see all of the pictures from this wonderful family trip!
PS- The Mickey Mouse/Monkey story..
is precious! She is such a little character herself!

Ohhh I'm so glad you had a wonderful Disney family trip! I know how hectic those trips can be, but soooo worth it in the end! I'm sure it feels good to be back home even with all the laundry!:)I know I can't stand that part either! Mia is too cute thinking Mickey is a monkey!

I'm so glad the trip was wonderful! Mia looks relaxed and excited in all of her photos -- what do you mean "screaming mimi?" Can't wait to hear about the rest of the week. Very happy you're home!
