We are finally back from our trip. All of us are tired, sun burned and just plumb done with traveling. LOL! It was wonderful though. The kids really had a great time. It was overwhelming the amount of stuff to do at Disney. Since my DH is in the Air Force we stayed at Shades of Green which is on Disney property. We had a very nice room. We opted for the dining option which saved us money overall. We got breakfast and dinner and used it everyday except for one evening. I had to get some seafood.

Join me as I take you on a journey to Disney!

Day 1 St. Augustine Beach

First we went to the beach. I chose one at random, St. Augustine. The beach was very pretty and white. This was my DH and kids first time ever to be in Florida. My kids had never seen the beach so I couldn't wait to show them.

Christina's first taste of salty sea water.

Disney Day 2 Epcot

We chose to eat German due to our heritage. It wasn't my cup of tea but it was cool inside.The kids under the big golf ball at Epcot. Spaceship Earth was one of our favorite rides that day. We also liked Test track, my son's favorite. The other one was Mission Space it makes you feel like go on a trip to Mars. We all had jobs commander, pilot etc. and we took everything seriously. It was so cool. In the beginning you are sitting on a launch pad and looking at nothing but sky. I have a serious fear of heights and it was very realistic. We survived and landed on Mars. Christina hated the mouse ears, she went back and forth on getting them and wearing them. Then I think she saw others wearing them and lots of adults too. She is at that in between age. You may notice the new glasses. My DH was very near sighted. He had surgery and although he calls her my little clone she has picked up his genes for eyes. We got her glasses just before we left and I was happy she could see everything at Disney. I tell her she is beautiful no matter what she has on her face.

We went to Hollywood Studios later that night and it was really neat. The kids talked me into the Hollywood Tower of Terror and it was scary they drop you at random and you see the outside as the doors open and close to show you how high you are up in the air.

The parade at the Magic Kingdom Day 2

The tower of terror at night! eeww!!! very scary I screamed so much I was hoarse. I'll be back with more pictures. I need to go take my dog for a walk, she desperately needs one, LOL! My DH turns 40 today so I also need to bake him a cake and make some plans.

Have a great day!
