Back From Vacation!

I know that not all of the states have a Mid-Winter Break in February, but our kids had off from school all last week. MJ and I decided to use the week for our trip to Disney World! We spent a fortune in airfare, but it was a much better alternative than driving. The weather was cool, but 68 degrees was ALOT warmer that what we have here in New York, so I was happy to be able to walk around the parks in jeans, and tee shirt, and a light jacket. One of my favorite things to do in Disney World is the Harambe Safari attraction in Animal Kingdom. We saw lot of animals this year, including this elephant drinking by the lake:

Isn't he just beautiful? If I didn't have a thing for pandas, I would be totally in love with elephants! I love them, too.

And of course, no trip to Disney would be complete without seeing the big mouse himself:

All in all, it was a very good trip. M went on alot of rides that he was unwilling to go on before. Something tells me that had more to do with the fact Z wanted to go on all of them, too, and there was no way M was going to let his four year old little brother be braver than him! It was great because M enjoyed every one of the rides that he went on (even Expedition Everest and Mission: Space) and it was great for me to see his spread his wings a bit and enjoy the "big boy" rides!
After being away for a week, I have to say that it was nice to get home last night and sleep in my own bed. We're all a little tired today because by the time we got home from the airport it was kind of late, so today is a lazy day here. Laundry, unpacking, and a little bit of stitching. I made some progress in the Mickey and Minnie project, but I don't have a current picture. I'll have to take one so you can see how it's coming along.
Have a good week. We're back into the swing of things tomorrow with work and school.
