Disney World

A few hours ago, Roy, Riley, Sophie, and I returned from a week long trip to Disney World. We came back to a Kentucky ravaged by ice. We were grateful to have been in 80 degree weather this week, but more so to get home and see that everyone was okay.

Our trip began with a stop to the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL. The kids had an absolute blast riding around the golf cart with Great Grandma Jean and we were able to see three of our best friends. As we crawled into bed that night, Roy and I knew that our trip was off to an amazing start.

Sunday, we headed to Disney to meet up with my folks. What a time!!We haven't seen them since September and this was such a treat! I especially enjoyed watching them with Riley. Oh, and it's always clear when we get together with my dad.

We stayed at the Old Key West Resort and had amazing accommodations. The ducks know that when people are on the balcony they are likely to be fed. Riley and Sophie proved that this is true.

There was lots of quality time with Grandma and Grandpa.

and playing in water. This was at the spitting camel.

Sophie lived, basically, on apples, oranges, and pretzels.

and got her first haircut. She was not amused, but didn't make any sudden movements - I'm sure the sharp implement near her ears helped keep her in place.
Riley continued to prove himself to be brother of the year, saving mom and dad from Sophie meltdowns when Roy and I went out for the evening, and so many other things he did for his little sister.
This is not my most eloquent post, but I wanted to get a few pictures up before I settle into the mounds and mounds of laundry, sink into the couch to catch up on Lost and Battlestar Galactica, and crawl into bed. Now begins the planning for our next trip!
