We're baaaack!

We arrived home late Thursday evening and while we had a blast, it is sooo nice to be back in our own beds. I kid you not that both kids were asleep within three minutes of laying down in their own beds! I'll have to post in pieces since there are so many pictures (many of which I'm waiting for official Disney ones, but until the CD is ordered, I can't get them... don't worry, it'll be soon).

This was Emery's first plane ride and she did great! I think she enjoys it as much as her brother!

We actually flew in to Tampa and spent two nights there before heading to Disney. We had a lovely condo that was just across the street from the beach. The kids loved the sand and the shells. The shells were just beautiful. Seeing as how the Gulf is part of the biggest shipping line, our beaches are nothing like Florida's. It was just beautiful! We also went on a dolphin excursion and got to see lots of dolphins. They even played with the boats, swimming along beside us. Awesome!

After our excursion we had some delicious seafood. I love little hole in the wall places, they always turn out to be so good. We even snacked on some alligator, yum! All I could think about was Swamp People... ha!

I'll start posting Disney pictures in the next post, but here's a picture to wet your appetite (and probably one of my favorite pictures from the trip):

****I am grateful for
1) my bed
2) kids all snuggled in their beds
3) lots of time with family
4) a wonderful trip
5) our home

I am so sad the trip is over, but so glad you had a good time. It seems like this trip was a long time coming, yet I'm surprised it is already over. That last picture of Chase is adorable. Too stinking cute. I can't wait to hear all about the rest of the trip.

Glad you made it home safe and sound.
