I’m thrilled to be sitting at my desk getting back to blogging. We had a great 11 day trip to Florida to visit theme parks and family!
I even had the pleasure of an unexpected coffee date with a fellow blogger!
But…I’m glad to be home. As great as the trip turned out to be, I am sitting here in pain, and feeling that general malaise of coming down with something…or maybe it is fatigue.
My back is pretty beat up, but I’m glad it is, in a weird sort of way. The muscles in my back are all messed up from riding mini roller coasters with Jasper who insisted that I hold him tightly. His first roller coaster was Big Thunder Mountain at Magic Kingdom. He was not a fan at first, but quickly morphed into a roller coaster lover…as long as I held him tightly. He even raised his arms…as long as I held him tightly. Doing so meant that I was slung around quite a bit, and now my back is paying for it. I did this for 4 days straight before crying uncle. The Hippogriff at Universal was the final straw after 5-6 times in a row. He was having fun, and that’s all I wanted.
You may remember my great wrestling with bringing my big girl camera, or not. I did bring it. However, my intital hunch was right. I ended up Instagramming almost the entire trip. We just were moving so fastly, and the kids did not want to slow down for pictures. I did get a few, but opted to put the camera away and just be in the moment.
And…I don’t think a 50mm was the right lens to bring. If you go, bring a lens with a wide angle and zoom capability…but quality glass. You live and learn.
Magic Kingdom was our first park. It is my favorite…because of the Magic. I just love the story telling, and drawing you into the story. We park hopped this time, and were able to keep going back for more!
I was so happy that my kids agreed to Mouse Ears this time. I just loved seeing them on their little heads.
