throwback thursday


In honor of the fact that Jim called me at work just to say, "I'm actually excited to go back. Don't know why. I just am."...the remainder of our Disney vacay just for him. And me and you.

We jumped ship super early that Sunday morning. No time to waste because they want you outta there!

With plans to park hop for four days, we designated Sunday as a day just to check in to our new home away from home for the week, eat, and shop. So that's how we spent it which means we wasted it away at Downtown Disney. When it was all said and done and we looked at the forecast, it showed rain, rain. Rain. And more rain. which made us rethink.

After three days at sea and turkey on the brain, we decided to cut our trip short, avoid the rain, use just one day of our four-day park passes, make it home in time to spend Thanksgiving with our whole family, and go back when school's out.

All four parks in just one day. We started at 8am at Animal and ended at 1am at Magic. Parker slept through Epcot with the excpetion of Nemo's ride, and we put both of them on a blue cotton candy sugar high around eight. They were troopers. So were we.

It's a Small World? Just as small at midnight.

And oh my goh that castle. I couldn't pick just one.

Are we there yet?


  1. hi friend! great pictures and even better memories! we are going to Disney World next month for one day to celebrate my sister and husband's 40th birthday, and yes, the kids are going too :) We are only going for the weekend, so it will be a down and back whirlwind trip. We went in 2012 and loved it, can't wait to go back and stay longer though!

  2. I can't wait until I can take Matthew and soon to be baby #2 there. In a few more years when they are a little older. Is it really the happiest place on earth??!! :)
