A short trip to my favorite place

We left Monday afternoon for one of my most favorite places on earth, Disney!!!  We only stayed for one night, but were able to hit 2 parks—one on Monday evening, and one all day Tuesday.

We would have stayed longer, but a.  it was HOT, b. I have to work all the other days of the week, except Tuesdays, and c. it was HOT.  Did I mention how HOT it was?  Lawsie mercie I do believe I was going to melt.  I have NEVER been to DW in August and let me just say here and now, I’m not sure I ever will again.  The boys did good and the hubs and I did fine, but mercy it was hot.

We went because I am trying to do a few fun-type things with the kids before school starts next week and I thought they would enjoy being surprised with a trip to the most magical place on earth.

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge Inn was our hotel of choice this time around.  I got an AWESOME passholder rate on the room and couldn’t resist!

Cecil’s cousin Jennifer, and her BF, Matthew, met us at Animal Kingdom on Monday evening so Jennifer could spend some time with us (she moved to Orlando a few weeks ago).dw 002

We were all exhausted from a long day at work, farming, and then Disney, so we headed back to the hotel for a quick snack and BED!

I'm glad that you had time to sneak away for a little while with the kids and the hubby :) It looks like y'all had a good time. Those cupcakes looked delish, and they didn't look so big until the pic of your boys with them. Wow. They were big! Yum.
