Back home and in the afterglow...



*Siiigh*....well, I'm home and in the afterglow of the top most awesome family vacation we have taken thus far. It was that AWESOME! Aside from that one tiny lil' run in with the prospective stalker chick I blogged about previously, everything else was wonderful and it put the stalker chick out of my mind for the rest of our vacation. I won't go into great detail about every single thing that happened, but I will summerize and throw in a few highlights. We got to our vacation destination on the 30th, in the afternoon and we spent the day getting settled in, swimming, fishing and trying to forget about the stalker waitress we had the unfortunate experience with. The next day, we stayed in as well. We swam all day and got to know the owners of the house, who stopped by to make sure we were all settled in. On the 1st, we went to the Animal kingdom and it was like a really clean, really expensive, beautiful zoo with a few Disney characters thrown in. On the 2nd, it was our Daughter's birthday. She was pampered from the moment she awoke until the time her head hit the pillow that night. She was dressed in a beautiful formal princess dress, tiara and had her hair and makeup done. We took her to the Magic Kingdom, where five minutes after entering this magical park, our Daughter was invited to meet Cinderella privately. It was such a huge birthday surprise! We then took her to a royal lunchen that took place at Cinderella's Castle, where she met Cinderella yet again, along with a few other famous Disney princesses. The whole day, we did many wonderful things and we finished out the day by watching the fireworks at the castle. I finally got to ride the monorail back out of the park, since we rode the ferry boat in; something I have been wanting to do.... On the 3rd, we spent the day at the house, swimming and fishing, and we had a mini birthday celebration/swimming party with cake and presents. We didn't get to do the huge brunch, nor sleep in that morning, like we had planned to do for that day since we were tuckered out after the first two days of running all over the first two parks. Apparently, the owners forgot they had an appointment that morning for some guy to come over and spray the inside and outside of the house for possible pests. So, we get this phone call from them at 7 am. Surprise!!! Great..... No sleeping in for us and no brunch since not only did this pest control guy come in, but so did the owners, who decided to chat with us for three frickin' hours, but it was all great aside from that. On the 4th, we went to Hollywood Studios on a spur of the moment change of plans, because of thunderstorms in the forcast that day. We were going to go to Typhoon beach, a water park, for the day, but yeah, those thunderstorms weren't going to let that happen. So, anyways, we went to Hollywood and had a great time and then around 5-ish pm, the skies broke and we ran around for about an hour in rain panchos. Thank goodness I grabbed those just in case! After the storms passed, we finished out the day, shopping for souvineers, snacking on food and watching Fantasmic. A really awesome 30 minute water works, lazer and fireworks show. Just awesome.....








On the 5th, we went to Epcot. My favorite park, right under Magic Kingdom. My favorite thing about this park was the World showcase. You could experience a lil' piece of each of the following countries: Mexico, Norway, China, Japan, Canada, Morocco, Germany, USA and the United Kingdom. Germany was my favorite of these showcased. We had lunch at the Akershus Royal Banquet hall in the Norway pavillion and got to meet more princesses and then for dinner, we ate at the Garden Grill resturaunt, which was a slowly spinning resturaunt, so you never tire of the scenery. We got to meet Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Chip and Dale there and the food was dynamite! After dinner, we left the Disney parks for the last time. It was bittersweet...On the 6th, we stayed in and relaxed and swam. We had a friend over for the day, who recently moved to Florida a couple months ago, so it was nice to see him again. All in all, a relaxing day, good food and I was able to get all the packing done and the house cleaned. On the 7th, we went home. We still got to sleep in before leaving, tho, so that was nice! Well, that was our vacation in a nut shell! Today, hubby had to go to work, but Daughter and I spent the day, relaxing and didn't do one productive thing today and that includes unpacking. Nope, I'm not ashamed. Lol...have a good week to those of you who stop by! God bless...
