Back to reality...but did I ever really escape??

We're back from our alone trip to Disney World, just hubby and me. We had been looking forward to this trip...we so needed some alone time and a chance to reconnect and just "be" without worrying about anything. I knew the trip would not be 100% worry-free...we were left our kids for 5 days and they were over 1000 miles away, but still. They were in mostly capable hands.

The trip itself was fantastic. Fab weather- 85-88, sunny, only rained one night and it was later on. We had a lot of fun and were silly and posed for lots of pictures. We rode all our favorite rides and re-rode them too.

On the Tomorrowland Speedway:

At Winter Summerland Mini Golf:

Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival:

Streets of America at Hollywood Studios:

On the Teacups at Magic Kingdom:

And Cinderella's Castle:

Sunset Boulevard at Hollywood Studios with our favorite ride in the background- Tower of Terror!!

But of course it was stressful too...our son got sick, just a little virus or something, but because he has asthma, it becomes a bigger issue. Luckily I had prepared our sitters ahead of time and he seemed to be okay. But still.....very hard for me to be that far away at a time like that.

And the relaxing nights we had planned for the resort's hot tub...yeah...that didn't happen. There were tons of school trips and such while we were there and every night, when we headed to the hot tub, we were pretty much the only adults there, surrounded by a minimum of twenty unsupervised teenagers.

The trip was well worth it and we did find ourselves missing the kids and very much looking forward to our next trip to "The World" with them in December!


  1. AAaarg missing the hot tub!! But at least everything went well between you and hubby and you guys look so cute together. :0)

  2. I love your pictures! You look so happy in them. I'm glad you had a good time. Your hot tub sounds like the hot tub on the cruise we took a few years back: always stuffed with squealing teens. Oh well.

    Glad you are back!

  3. Thanks ladies! We did enjoy ourselves indeed!
