A little over a year ago, the fam and I got our first taste of Disney World– or “the Castle” as it is known ’round here when we popped over to Disney World during our family Florida vacation.
Despite fevers and drive times (we stayed over an hour and a half away), we had discovered what so many families do… that Disney offers an amazing opportunity to get away and play together in a world of imagination that is pretty much unmatched anywhere else.
It was during that trip that we decided we were going to save up our pennies and come back this summer and do it up right, with all the fixin’s.
In the meantime, we got the surprise of a lifetime when we got to take a surprise trip this past fall that was filled with wonderful memories and let’s face it… an addiction to the world that holds magic in every nook and cranny for a busy family that is looking for a place to refuel together.
And as our summer vacation approaches, anticipation is building…
Because Mama needs a vacation…
She needs to unplug and reconnect with what is important…
and Mama needs some magic…
To hang out with Snow White for days on end as she gasps and giggles at everything she sees…
To take it all in as her Monkey monkeys around with some silly chipmunks.
To watch the best ever Daddy as he daddies with endless imagination powers.
To ride on the back of a flying elephant with a 4 year old smile as big as Dumbo’s ears.
To spend some focused time with her best friend in the world.
To enjoy the sweetness of her 4 year old and a bowl of ice cream as big as her head.
To dive under the sea on a hot summer’s day
To hug a mouse in a polka-dot dress
To ride around in sea shells and converse with fish.
To laugh at juvenile “Pooh” jokes with the jokester of all jokesters
To nibble on mouse ears for breakfast.
To watch real-live talking cars!
To take a moment and pause our world for a few days…
And create one all our own.
