Spring Break - Again!

Maddy and Grace at Hollywood Studios!

Back to spring break posts -- caught a bit of a head cold on the way home that knocked me out and delayed my posting.  So sorry, loyal readers!  
Are you still out there???  Bueller, Bueller . . .

We were able to meet up with some travel group friends from Amy's travel group to China!   I went too so consider myself one of their travel mates.   Two families happened to be at Disney World at the same time!!  In big crowded Disney, we ran into them at Splash Mountain!! 
It was great to see them again and their most adorable girls!!  
We went on some rides, had lunch together, caught up a bit and the girls danced at Magic Kingdom and basically had a blast!  They are all so sweet.  
None live by each other, but they don't skip a beat when they get together. 
It's quite a wonderful thing to see! 

We also met them for dinner at a crazy restaurant called Whispering Canyon. 
There's nothing whispery about that place. 
You basically scream for ketchup or whatever you need and other tables bring it over resulting in, oh about 23 bottles of ketchup!  Fun, crazy, loud place!!

On Easter morning, there was an Easter egg hunt at our hotel, which really amounted to a "grab a bunch of candy" as fast as you can. 
But, then Mr. and Mrs. Donald Duck appeared, so Maddy abandoned her
 Easter bag and jumped in line. 
Not to worry, her cousin Grace got plenty of candy to share!

Later, we headed to Epcot and went on my favorite ride - Soaring!!
It was a fast and fun vacation.  Seriously, we were exhausted every single night.

Thank  you Amy and Grace for meeting us and
spending your Easter break with us!

Donald Duck, Amy, Grace, Maddy, me and Mrs. Duck

Then Easter Monday, it was time to head home again. 
It was really quite a magical trip!

Next time -- we are heading to the Dance Hall!

My favorite view from the Boardwalk!

I just loved Disney! The wedding was at Disney that we attended. We didn't stay on Disney this time. What hotel did you stay at?

Looks like you had a blast. I love that you and Maddy are so close and do these lovely things together.

That is an adorable picture of you all together. How fun that you were able to get together with the travel group. We traveled alone when we went to china but we did meet us with Josie's orphanage roommates at Disney world two years ago.

Looks like you had a fabulous time at Disney. I know exactly how you feel when it comes to the exhaustion each night. It's crazy how much you do when you visit the parks. Must have been great catching up with your sister's travel group.

Glad to hear you're feeling better.
