Maddy on Vacation

In February, we took Maddy on vacation with us to Disney World in Florida.  It was a great getaway from the enormous amounts of snow we got this year and the frigid temperatures.  All in all, I think Maddy had a great time, even though we had to make some special adjustments for her.

She was so excited about the trip that I had to whip her up some of her very own Mickey ears during the long drive down to Florida.  She didn’t want to take them off for anything!

She forgot to pack extra underwear so I had to do some laundry at the hotel (good thing I remembered to pack tiny clothespins).  And she found her buddy Aran Wool “stowed away” in her luggage.  Hmmm.

She thought the “snowmen” down there looked rather odd.

At the parks, she got to meet with a lot of the characters.  She really loved the princesses!

She did a little shopping in China and Mexico at Epcot!

She enjoyed strolling through the flower beds (we told her they were botanical gardens).  And she enjoyed a ride or two.

But Maddy was too small for a lot of the rides so we had to make her some fun.  For instance, the hot tub at the hotel was way too deep for her so we had to make do with letting her take a dip in Chief Wiggums’ coffee at Universal Studios.

And I also tried creating my own “ride” for her back at the hotel room.  I called it, “The Hurricane.”  She didn’t really like it.

Still, she had such a great time that she didn’t want to leave to go home (or remove her Mickey ears).

But after the long drive home and a little time to relax after so much fun, all was right with the world again.

    She had a blast! Wade and I went a few years ago and I cried when it was time to leave too.

      Awwww! It’s such an amazing place! I have to admit I’m glad I was an adult my first time. I think it all would have been way too overwhelming for me as a kid. But I hope you get to go again soon. I bet you and Wade have a lot of fun together at places like that. 🙂
