Better Late than Never

I just celebrated the big 3-8 and you know what, I'm not even bothered!  Besides, they say thirty is the new twenty, so I guess I'm really only 28! ;o) 

***I am grateful for
1) birthdays
2) birthday cake... haha
3) clean cars (which is rare around here)
4) getting another year older because it means I'm alive!
5) the smell of fresh laundry

Summer and Disney!

So again an entire month (plus some) has passed.  I'll be honest, just makes it easier to post than a blog.  However, it's nice to have a blog where it's all in one spot.  Sadly, when I look at the number of posts, they are now few and far between!  I keep telling myself that I'll get better, but I've yet to see it happen.

Summer has been flying by.  We left for Disney the week after school was out and then the day after we got home, we had our church camp.  Basically we blinked and half of the summer was gone!  Disney was in one word, "awesome!"  Of course, it always is.  There was rain, but it didn't slow us down one bit.  The crowds weren't really bad yet, the heat wasn't too hot yet, and we did things we hadn't done before.  I rode Mt. Everest and Rockin' Roller Coaster and I loved them.  I rode The Tower of Terror and I hated it!  We had four generations, which was a once in a lifetime and I think everyone enjoyed just about everything.  Here are some pictures from our trip.  We are already planning our next one, probably in October 2015 if all goes as planned.

Riding Dumbo with Duchess
Star Wars Breakfast, meeting Greedo
We literally took over a thousand pictures, so this is just a sampling.  All I can say is if you haven't gone to Disney World because the kids are too little or it's too expensive or for whatever reason, you need to rethink it.  This is definitely one of the happiest places on Earth!

***I am grateful for
1) wonderful vacations
2) memories being made
3) time with family
4) Disney World
5) summer!
