Our trip to FL

We went to Florida for spring break this year, my parents have a time share one mile out side of Disney. We didn't tell the girls we were going to Disney just FL. We left early Saturday morning the Sat before Palm Sunday we were on the road by 8:00am pretty impressive considering there are six of us. We drove pretty hard the first day and made it all the way to Jacksonville FL around 10:00pm. The kids did really well, Jaden had some rough spots, especially around 8:00 bed time, but he eventually fell asleep until we got to the hotel. When we woke up on Sunday we had only 2 and a half hours left to drive, which was really nice. As it is with all vacations your so excited to get there and just relax and try not to rush all your time away. Well if it were up to the girls we would have done everything in the first day. We wound up getting settled and going swimming at the time share it was a beautiful day. We took the kids to the Magic Kingdom on Monday so Michael would be able to spend a good amount of time with them before he unfortunately had to fly out to CA on business for the rest of the week. The kids had a great time spending the week with Mommy and Mima and Papa but they did miss Michael.

Our first night there we went to Disney's Boardwalk and had dinner, the girls were so excited once they found out we were at Disney.

The next day on the monorail to Disney's Magic Kingdom.

With Walt and Mickey.

At the end of the week we had dinner at the Grand Floridian with Cinderella and the Prince unfortunately the pictures did not come out well so I don't have any to post.

We also took the kids to Busch Gardens while we were in FL a crazy story I don't wish to repeat but I'm glad it's over. The kids had a great time at Dinosaur Land for the short amount of time we actually got to spend in the park.

I was afraid Madison would be afraid on this hanglider ride and told Kaleigh not to make it bounce, meanwhile Madison is the one that made it bounce. She is so fearless sometimes.

With the exceptions of the traffic on the way home, it took 2 days instead of the 15 hours it should have, we had an awesome time, we definitely enjoyed the memories.

What a great trip! So glad you all had fun. I love the girls in their matching turquoise colors for their first dinner at Disney. Sorry there were some ups and downs along the way, but you have four kids, so you knew to expect it!

So fun! We just did the Orlando thing too and drove. Traffic was torture.
But well worth it to see how much fun the kids have!
The pictures are great!
