We go often, but this time it was to acknowledge the end of hubby's radiation treatment.
MY choice, because we were on the journey together.
OK, it is not his favorite place, but it is mine.
Mine, because we are miles away from hubby's wood business.
He can actually relax and leave his phone turned off.
So, bottom line... we enjoy each others company.
and the food
and many of the attractions.
When we checked in, they gave hubby a pin to wear.
If you are celebrating something, you write it on the pin.
or Good Health...that was the pick for hubby.
So here are a few of my highlights
That is the end of our first day at the WDW Resort and an easy highlight.
First full day begins with breakfast
As we were leaving the dining room a tall dark and handsome man smiled at me. I thought he might be smiling at someone behind me, but I smiled back. As he passed by I heard him say
" we ate every bit of the pie "
By the time I realized what had happened I turned around and ....
Well, I hope he heard my happy reply, though I could not tell where he had gone.
but, it was nice.
We have our favorites at Hollywood studios. Many of the fun rides are gone, but there is still the play Beauty and the Beast...which we love.
and Lunch at Prime Time Cafe.
|Each year we get a photo of someone sitting in the turquoise lounge chair|
This year, no lounge chair..but it is turquoise
|And every table is like it's own kitchen table|
playing old black and white clips of
There is time for Indiana Jones and a couple more attractions
Then we leave Hollywood Studios and take a boat ride to Epcot Center. We could spend more than a day at Epcot, so we do.
This is part of the Festival of the Arts event...We helped both days.
And by the end of the second day......Finished !
and this is the postcard all participants received...
Full day at Epcot. Good weather... Good Food.
The Magic Kingdom
|Breakfast with favorite bear|
Now we are ready to head out to the rides
|Goodbye Crystal Palace,|
|Country Bear Jamboree|
It's a tradition
And this is my favorite spot at WDW The Grand Floridian
We have dinner in their family dinning room
|Fresh and delicious|
Always room for dessert
|Good bye Grand Floridian|
We end our last full day at the Park, and on the shuttle back to our room a passenger commented on Darrell's Celebrate button.
You have to look close...it says...Celebrating Good Health
This is the end of the day and kids are tired and parents are exhausted and the bus is often quieter than in the morning. So the conversation was a little more "public" and serious. Talking about cancer and treatment and family and celebrating and...
well suddenly , the back end of the bus was clapping.
And yes, that was my highlight of the day....maybe even the whole trip.
|Once again, final morning|
But is is also a day at the Park.
The Animal Kingdom
And much much more.
It is a real Safari Ride and this year we saw more wild life than ever before.. maybe it was the weather
|Not quite as good as it looks, quite tasty|
A final treat before
We knew the flight home would be interesting. We flew from Orlando to San Diego ( cheapest seats ) and then to Seattle. We knew that flights had been cancelled the day before and the weather was still threatening. But, we made the connection and arrived home to find....... The expected snow
But, the unexpected 40 degrees in our home. The furnace had stopped working and no one at home to get help... 2:00 in the morning and hubby made a fire in the wood stove.
I live an exciting life, and a blessed one.
Much to be thankful for.
