Back home

Whew -- made it home late this afternoon after our whirlwind Easter Disneyworld trip! We had a fabulous time! Miss Maddy was and is the absolutely best little traveler. She didn't mind getting up at 4 am to catch our flight and was just went with the flow through checking in, getting thru security, waiting in the airport and finding our way to the condo.

And the weather was so nice!! We had one rainy day, but that was ok since we needed a day to rest up after hitting the parks early and late every day. But, otherwise, the weather was good -- warm and sunny, a teensy bit humid at times and then cool at nights! Mad and I were a team and went to Magic Kingdom, Disney Studios and Epcot every single day and sometimes more than once a day! I walked over 10 miles yesterday alone.

And BONUS -- it was Epcot Spring Flower Festival with a tribute to flower power bands of the 60s and 70s. We saw The Guess Who in concert one evening!! They were SO GOOD!! I know, you're saying --WHO?? But even Connor recognized some of their songs, though not their name. He said that some have been re-mixed and American Woman (maybe) was in Superbad. That was really, really cool. Of course, I was a mere child when they were first popular and had older brothers and sisters who listened to them, so that explains my familiarity with them -- there is no way that I've seen Superbad!

It was fun to see hub's brother, his wife and daughter. Maddy loved their daughter -- who, at 16 years old, could have thought Maddy to be a little pest. But she was wonderful with her and Maddy wrote her a note on her magna doodle that said "I love Clare." So sweet. (Photo of Clare, Connor and Maddy with Chip and Dale above --I think that's Chip next to Connor.)

And dear hub -- he's such a traveler! Luckily, he was paying attention today in Cincinnati . . . or we might still be there. Yikes -- we didn't realize our flight was boarding, so we were off getting some food when he came running out yelling "Final Boarding!!" Whew -- we made the flight. Thanks Delta for being so nice and waiting for us.

Good to be home and it's back to work and school tomorrow -- hoping for warm temps. One of the nicest things about Florida was seeing how lovely and green everything is there already -- a little hint of things to come here - we're ready! More pics to come in the next few days if I ever figure out how to do a collage or slide show.

It sounds like you had a great trip. I can't wait to hear all about it today! Cute pictures too!

Sounds like you had a wonderful trip. Maddy sounds like quite the trooper! I love the pictures and I look forward to seeing more.

ps -
to do a slide show you can go to and to do a collage you can go to or if you save your photos in picasa you can create a collage there(easier than bighugelabs). I would be happy to help you if you need it.

What wonderful picutres and memories!! Sounds like you had a great time. It must have truly been magical (seriously no pun intended!) to take Maddy to Disney...It is the perfect age!

Totally off topic...but I LOVE Maddy's haircut!! It suits her so well and looks beautiful. She is a stunning girl and seems just as sweet on the inside!

I'll be back to check out the photos!!
