Disney - Spring Break

Tyler and my nephew Gabe were born within a month of one another. For a long time, my Mom has talked about wanting to take them to Disney World. Well, lucky us - we got to go along! During Spring break, my parents took us, my sister-in-law, Carrie, and 3 of her kids (Gabe, Israel and baby Layla) to Orlando. We maximized every day we had there.

We flew in at midnight on Sunday night. The next day, Wayne and Dad took the boys to the Animal Kingdom. We girls stayed back to do a little souvenir and grocery shopping and got settled into the condo.

Here are a few shots of our week:

Loving the balcony.

Epcot - and one of their amazing gardens.

Talking to the shark expert...for a looooong time!

Appreciating the tiny details in the butterfly garden.

More amazing gardens.

Aubrey kept climbing in empty cabinets and'd often not see her at all or only a few fingers poking out.

Enjoying the evening fireworks from the balcony.

Mini golf at the condo

We had such a great week. It was exciting, relaxing and just wonderful to be together since we all live so far apart. What a wonderful gift they gave to us and our children.
