We are still recovering from our trip around the world it feels like, but I have at least one favorite moment from each day...hope the pictures give you a glimpse of our happiness during our own "break from reality!"
|Still smiling after a full-day at Sea World on a holiday weekend :)|
|Lovin' our special time with family!|
|Sissy (Maddy) made the Ferry Ride to Magic Kingdom much more pleasant...|
|Zoe's kiss from Snow White....this was the moment I couldn't stop crying....so sweet!!!!|
|Zoe's magic carpet ride! She loved this one and couldn't wait to get on!|
|Zoe just loves boat rides...|
This was Zoe's face on a majority of the rides at Disney.....then, she couldn't stop talking about how much she loved it!
|Precious moment...She keeps talking about how he kissed her on her nose too :)|
|Her favorite princess.|
|Rapunzel is so tiny!! Especially next to long-legged Maddy :)|
|Tooooo cute!!! She was just in heaven. Maddy was such a good sport too.|
|Zoe and Daddy dancing with Chip and Stitch! |
Mama and Maddy were in line for Space Mountain for the umpteenth time!
|She loved playing in the "snow!" Wanted to build a snowman and everything!|
|Maddy about to get crushed from the huge waves! We were on a wind-advisory so not able to parasail this go around........next time for sure though!!|
|At Bay Towne Wharf of Sandestin....fun spot!|
|Wish I could have captured her sign when she said, "Ahhh, so relaxing!"|
|Gorgeous girl on a gorgeous beach!|
|Mommy and Zoe|
|Mommy and Daddy|
|Zoe loves her sissy|
|Daddy and his teenager (I can't believe Maddy is already 14!!!!)|
|Attack of Spongebob! She's a fan now...at first she just called him "Cheese Man"|
|Admiring the adorable baby dolphin nursery at Sea World|
|Awaiting the Shamu show to start...we were excited right up until she figured out just how big he actually is, then she wanted nothing to do with him!!! It was so sad!!|
Looking back on all of our Florida pictures, I am realizing just how much we actually did in 9 days...4 different hotels, 2300 miles on the new suburban, 2 theme parks, shopping, swimming, and TONS of good eating...even through all of the traffic jams, Zoe's 'indigestion' (we'll just leave it at that...), sleepless nights, long lines, and HUGE crowds, we created memories that will last a lifetime for all 4 of us I believe. I would do it all again in a heartbeat!
Other favorite moments include Zoe going through 4 pairs of sunglasses, Ariel (one of Zoe's favorite little toys) being "swept out to sea," license plate poker (I think we got 22 states or so?! including Maine!!), hot fudge hamburgers, tossing napkins around spinning clamshells, getting wave-slapped, popsicles for breakfast at bad-a$$ coffee, sweet prayers for D.O.G., doing the Wobble at Fudpucker's, holding a gator, and family hugs everywhere.....
Take some time this summer to really spend time with the ones you love. Look them in the eye, tell them you love them, pray for each other, kiss and cuddle, find something to appreciate even during the roughest of days, laugh outloud, enjoy your best friends and family, and savor the memories God has blessed you with.
