disney world part 1

ok, so my family and i are in disney world. we all packed into to explorer and left about 5:30 am on friday morning. drove straight through to tallahassee in about 16 hours including stops for potty and the like 🙂 . we stayed the night at a holiday inn there, then drove the rest of the way to orlando the next day. not terribly eventful, unless you count my father-in-laws tahoe stalling in the middle of the road, about ten minutes from the resort. but we prayed for it, and it started up just fine. we are staying at the sheraton vistana villas. this place is freakin rad. we have basically our own little apartment litterally one mile away from the doormat of disney world! we took it easy on saturday after we got settled, with a little game of wiffle ball in the backyard, that includes a playground for the kids. on sunday we took on epcot. this place gets a bad rap, but i totally dug it. well, the kids like it ok, and we all left a little early but.. des and i returned later that evening for our…..

6th wedding anniversary!!!!

yes thats right folks, six wonderful, awesome years with the absolute love of my life! i am so blessed to have this amazing woman to call my own, i sometimes find myself dizzy with wonder.

woah, that was heavy (major points expected there 😉 ). anyway, we returned to experience what i thought was the coolest part of epcot, the international fare. start on one side and your in denmark, and you cross through, like 1o countries and 5 continents, while enjoying the food, drinks, and culture from each! it is right up my alley, as one of my favorite things in the world (pun intended) is to travel. we sampled som very interesting fare including a dish with spicy yellow potato and crab salad, yum. experienced a wonderful chardonnay from new zealand, before settling down for dinner in italy at a romantic table for two on the patio of a very quiant restaurant.

dinner went down easy, and we litterally walked one foot out of the restaurant when the lights show began. this was really cool. they have a gigantic lights and fireworks show that lasts about thirty minutes at closing time very night. it is choreographed to music and is very emotional. we got caught up. it was awesome.

very cool first couple of nights….

on the way we spotted a wild animal! (the wild animal is actually a tiger inside that cage, not destiny) they had this cage at a gas station just inside the east part of louisiana. wierd.

also encountered about the nicest rest stop known to man. (did i just use “nice” and “rest stop” in the same sentence?)
