The (2nd) Happiest Place On Earth

Well, my friends...We are off!
We are off to Disney World! Many people refer to this magical place as The Happiest Place on Earth.
When I told Flynn that, she responded with, "Mommy, HOME is the Happiest Place on Earth!"
And right she is!
But for the next week, we will be here, visiting some friends of ours...

We hope to see many old friends, ride some very fun rides, swim in some super cool pools, and eat at some very neat restaurants...

But of course...the main event will be meeting and dining with this lovely princess. : )

At the end of it all we stop and stare and cherish the memories we made.
Our little family of six.
Plus one Danish boyfriend who is flying across the ocean to join us.
And all will be right with the world.

I always say my whole life is a vacation. That is...I am privileged to do each and every day the things that make me happy...keeping a home, being a wife, and being a mother.
I cherish these vacations for my husband, who works so very hard for us. And for my children, who work so very hard in school and at work. I am thankful to my sister and her husband, along with my sweet mother, who stay at our home to watch our puppies, get our mail, and water our plants.
So...that is that.
I will return here next week with pictures and memories to share with you all.
In the meantime, have a safe, happy and cozy week.
I'll miss you!

Thanks to Pinterest for all the images. : )
