Family Trip to Florida!

We took a fun family trip to Orlando, Florida! We left on the 4th and returned on the 11th of September. So, we were gone for 8 whole days, 6 of which we spent at the parks. We went to all of them. Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, back to Magic Kingdom again and one more time at Epcot. Just a little note to self "5 days would have been perfect." Like Grandma Quick kept saying, "It's a lot of work to have so much fun!"

We were so glad that Jeff's mom & dad could come with us - we traveled together there and back - it made things just that much easier - it was so nice. Then we met up with Jeff's sister & hubby and their cute family when we arrived. We stayed with them for 2 nights in their 4 bedroom condo and for the rest of the nights we had our own 3 bedroom condo. It was so much fun to see them again. They live in Houston, TX right now and so it was a real treat to be on vacation with their adorable family.

It was also fun seeing the definate and real difference between boys and girls. Girls are so fun and . . . well . . . girly - I liked getting to know my neices better like that - and having more girls to hang out with was just a blast!

On the way home we asked the kids, "Okay so what was your favorite part of the trip?" To which they quickly replied - "Swimming." Isn't that nice to know - next year maybe we'll save a bunch of money and go to the local swimming pool :D

The only thing I can think of that would have made it better is if you were all there with us.
