Frenzied

I’ve been in a blather getting ready for our quick trip…  We are leaving tomorrow morning with Olivia and crusing down to probably Ocala, where we’ll stop for the night.  Thursday we will meet up with the Jose’ Family (who are already in Orlando for the Irish Dance Nationals) at Old Key West Resort, check-in, and head directly to Magic Kingdom and stay for the Castle Wrap. Friday morning, 5am, we will be in the parking lot of Hollywood Studios to hopefully get in the park early and ride the Slinky Dog rollercoaster and Alien Saucers.   If you are a Disney fan, you know that those rides, indeed a whole new Toy Story Land, just opened on 6/30 and lines have been as long as 6 hours!!!  We’re stoked for the Adventure, and we will use our SuperCuteness to charm our way through.  Weather is supposed to be horrific, but we laugh in the face of humidity!!  We are a Disney Family!  Saturday we’ll load up Melissa, Emma, and Eliza (and Olivia, of course) to drive back to Sonnystone.  Shew!  Isn’t that Exciting?

I have laid in supplies for Camp:  all new markers and paints, brushes, and lots of wood items and canvasses.  I still have to pick up an order of play-doh and accessories and a water-balloon launcher thingy.  We’ve got fresh new cornhole boards and bags, too.  Ready for Fun.  To prepare an art area, we brought in a table from the garage, and some benches from outside, then covered them in vinyl tablecloths…

It doesn’t sound like I’ll have time to blog while we’re gone, but I will report back as soon as I can.

Happy Fourth of July!  Be careful with those sparklers!

Peace

A Few Photos

I just got back from visiting the Happiest Place on Earth.  It isn’t Just the Mouse that makes it such a joyful spot.  The company was superb.   I’ve planned this trip for 8 months and there have been many obstacles and doubts about it happening at all, so I’m quite rightly a little proud that it was so charmed.  Taking along a 5-month-old baby and a fella receiving chemotherapy seemed, at times, quite risky, but they were both full of smiles.

I’m just now sorting through the hundreds of shots on my Nikon.  I also bought the Memory Maker and those are the $$ shots, but I have to link up a few more photos before I download them.  So till then…
