Saying goodbye...

We're recovering.
The laundry is all done. And by done, I mean washed and dried and piled on the couch.

Most of the suitcases are put away.

I still haven't been grocery shopping since we got home so we've had a lot of sandwiches for meals this week. (Mom of the Year!)

We're getting there...

Do you do amusement parks? Do you like roller coasters?

Thanks for sharing!So does your little guy want to work at Disney even more now? We had so much fun there in August but we never stayed up for the parades and fire works. My 3 year old was tuckered out by 8. There is always next time.

Love your photos! We went in January and loved every moment!
Good luck getting settled back in at home! And don't worry--you are Mom of the Year--you took your children to Disney!

I love it that you included a pic of yourself! Looks like so much fun. I love the fireworks over the castle. It's all so magical :)

Laundry and grocery shopping will always wait - now is the time to cherish the memories!!

Love it all!!! (Especially Tower of Terror and Rockin' Roller Coaster)Is Soarin' the one where you are piloting a shuttle mission and everyone has a job? If it is I made the mistake of laughing when the g-forces got really high and suddenly I couldn't breathe!!! Scared me a little bit :)

Looks like you had a blast! I wish we had been able to go when Bailey was younger...she was 15 and her old parents ran circles around her (I even had a horrible sunburn from our beach day, very swollen legs & feet with "golfer's rash" one day and still outlasted her).

Hope you recover (too bad we can't take a quiet, resting vacation to recover from the fun go-go-go vacations, huh?)

We went two weeks ago and Soarin was my favorite ride. The smell of pine and the oranges. I loved it also. Glad you enjoyed.

What a fun surprise trip for all!
Sure does look like fun.

Have fun getting caught up! :)
