Fantastic Florida

Hey there beautiful friends.
We are back in Baltimore and getting back to normal.

Now, there is so much catching up to do.
I cant wait to see what my bloggy friends are up to.
I bet that there are many great 4th of July recipes and ideas floating around out there.
Our vacation was fantastic
and boy..
did it fly by fast!!

We spent our mornings and afternoons floating in the warm Gulf
and our evenings by one of the many swimming pools sipping cold summertime drinks.

I could easily get used to doing that everyday!


In the middle of the week we drove to Orlando and took the ferry across to Disney's Magic Kingdom.

Since none of us had ever been to Disney before
We were very excited and wasn't quite sure what to expect.

It was HOT and over CROWDED
but we managed to have a good time.

Paul and the girls loved the Space mountain roller coaster
and I loved the Haunted Mansion ride.

There were so many sights to see..

Pooh and Tiger say hello to you Sherry!

It was an amazing week!!!

The worse thing about vacations are that they have to end.

Have  a wonderful week everyone

From all of your pictures I would say you had a wonderful time! I love Florida! Disney was wickedly hot when we were there, too! I wonder what it is about that place?!!

Gorgeous pictures! I haven't been to Disney World since I was little. We used to go to Disneyland in California it was always so crowed and hot and expensive I would not enjoy the happiest place on earth waiting 2 hours for it's a small world!

Hi Leslie,
Welcome back home...Sounds like you guys had a wonderful time...You're right, the worst part of a vacation is when it all ends, but at least there's the next one to look forward to ;-) Wishing you a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,

What a wonderful time in the Magic Kingdom!Can you imagine how hot those characters get inside those suits...Whew!
I used to live in Clearwater Beach and LOVED it!

Jemm said...

Isn't that the truth! We're leaving for Colorado Thursday and I cannot wait! Cool temps and no housework! I need a vacation about every two months ideally ;) Just kidding, not gonna happen :( We get to go to Disney in January with family-very excited. We went about 4 years ago, so it will fun to see how the kids react now!
