I kind of left you guys hanging, I feel. I shared after I got back from vacation that I had taken a vacation. But, then I took the holidays off the blogs and I never shared about the vacation. Top Ten Tuesday seemed like the perfect opportunity to share just ten of our big adventures from our early December vacation.
10 Adventures from Our Magical Vacation
1. We ate breakfast in a castle with princesses.
2. We whizzed through the darkest regions of space on a small ship driven by a droid who had no idea what he was doing. It was even worse when we found out that the ship was carrying a Rebel spy! (We didn’t learn from our error in judgement to board the ship, and we then did it five more times. Silly us!)
3. We hopped aboard a run away train in the old west in a place called Big Thunder Mountain. (This, we also somehow managed to foolishly do six times.)
4. After a long day, Jack became a Beast. But, despite that, he still managed to dance with a certain beauty named Belle.
5. Ended up not being tipped off by the eerie exterior of the Hollywood Tower Hotel, and unfortunately ended up on an ill-fated elevator ride.
6. We met an alien (experiment 626) who was very wild. I think he tried to take down Noah.
7. We walked our way around the world in only about an hour, and that was even with sight seeing (and eating a snack in France).
8. We took a jungle cruise with a hilarious captain. Well, unless he apparently lost his mind and decided to make our eight year old Molly the new captain.
9. We learned about car design, designed our own, and then took a test drive through various conditions (including a banked 60+ MPH ride in an open topped car).
10. Molly had her hair and make up done by a Fairy Godmother-in-Training.
Oh yeah, it was an adventure filled eight days (that I saved up business money for all year long so that I could pay for our trip myself!).
And, yes, I know we just went to Disney World last year too. (But Eric only got to go for two days last year, so we knew we wanted him there the whole time this time around.)
Know what? I would go again next year, if I thought I could get away with it too.
Oops…I did forget one thing! In all the magical moments, the kids may have found one less than magical moment. Of course, magical is all pretty subjective, isn’t it?
