The Happiest Place On Earth

Last week we made the close to 2200 mile round trip to Florida to visit Brian's family and go to Disney World. We broke the drive up into three days and spent more than we usually do to stay in nice hotel. (No offense to Motel 6...our usual hotel of choice) Camden did surprising well in the car thanks to a little help from the DVD player we purchased midway through our first day's drive. After three days in the car we made it to Holiday, Florida on Sunday afternoon.

We spent Sunday and most of Monday day at Brian's Grandmother's house before driving to Orlando. Brian's sister, Christine and her husband, David have a timeshare that they graciously shared with us. Tuesday we visited downtown Disney, hung out around the house and just enjoyed watching the kids play together. Wednesday was the big Magic Kingdom day that started when the park opened...8 am. We had bold ambitions of making an entire day of it but called it quites after 9 hours. We were able to squeeze in all of the rides and sightseeing we wanted Camden to experience. He loved "It's a Small World" and flying with Dumbo. Thursday we took some time to do a little sightseeing and sit down to enjoy a yummy Irish lunch. Friday we packed up and headed back home. We figured that we spent just as much time, if not more, in the car than we did out of it....but it was worth it.

I took over 275 pictures.
These are some of my favorites:
