The Most Magical Place EVER!!!

September 17th, 2012 . by Melissa

Can you tell from my post title that I’m still on a bit of a Disney high? Goodness, I love that place…

I still remember the first time I went. I was ten years old and my parents told me and my brother that we were headed to Alabama to visit my Aunt Ann. We woke up after a long night’s drive and found ourselves in Florida. We started demanding some serious answers when we realized where Florida really was on the map. And that’s when my parent’s turned around and exclaimed, “We’re going to Disney World!?!!?!?!?” AHHHHH! I love it. Every time I see those Disney Vacation commercials (you know the ones, where they show home videos of kids being surprised by their parents?) it tugs at my little heart strings. So, yes, I am a victim of an emotional marketing strategy. And no, my 7 month old and almost 3 year old aren’t going to remember a lick of this vacation; but the awe on their little faces, experiencing that in the moment, was completely and utterly worth it.

Here’s a quick glance at our marvelous time:

    @Joni- It was so fun. We’re going back in 4 years. Come with us, then!!!! :) Alvin will be 4, the perfect age!

    @Alisha- GREAT point! I didn’t even think about it from that perspective.

    @Andrea – I know, we’re crazy with all the traveling. But we love it! We still have 3 more trips before the end of this year! Speaking of…hopefully we will see you in Utah next weekend. :)
