Vacation- Week 1

We weren’t planning on going to Disneyworld this year, but we had a week to use and I changed my mind about summer school….so we said what the heck and decided to go for TWO weeks!

We packed everything up and left about 10 at night on Sunday and drove straight through to Alan’s parents’ home for a week. Why drive at night you ask?? Have you ever tried driving with five kids? It’s tough doing it around town, let alone a 12 hour drive! The kids (and I!!) slept through the night and Alan drove…in peace and quiet! We wouldn’t do it any other way!

It rained the first few days…but it finally cleared up and the kids were able to swim. Emma Kate LOVES the water!

And of course…my child that hates to have his picture taken!

After another day of rain, it finally stopped and we took a trip to the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park to see the famous manatees. The kids had a blast!

This little guy wasn’t part of the exhibit, but he followed us for the longest time….wanting us to feed him I guess!
