My Sister absolutely rocks, thanks to her we had the most amazing vacation ever (well our only vacation ever, since the honeymoon 13 yrs ago) to Orlando (which happens to be where we went for our honeymoon, lol).

It was so nice to get away with my Hubby and the kids and my Sister and her family. We stayed in a fabulous house and were only minutes away from Mickey Mouse. I of course took a trillion pictures and got every autograph we could.

It was so neat to see the wonder and joy on my kids faces as they met their heroes and saw their favorite TV characters. It really was a dream come true trip for us. I had so much fun running around and acting like a kid along with them. It definitely was one of those once in a lifetime dream trips. And I couldn't thank my sister enough for planning it all.

We also got to got to Universal and see the new Harry Potter themed park! I was in heaven! I am such a huge fan of the Harry Potter books and films and it was just like being in my books. The scenery was perfect the stores were so authentic and the rides were awesome! Plus I got to eat at the Three Broomsticks and drink real Butter beer! was so wonderful. Oh and the Lucille Ball impersonator was so awesome and real looking and acting :)

And if all that fun was not enough I also did the 300 foot sky coaster swing. My brother in law and my nephew went on it with me and it was seriously nerve wracking knowing I had to pull the chord that would drop us the 300 feet down, but once that chord was pulled it was incredible! So much more fun than the gorge swing in Africa. No whiplash this time and they didn't make me climb a mountain afterwards.  (there is a video on my facebook if anyone wants to see :)

I was really sad the day we had to head home and back to the real world as it was so nice having the hubby and kids and family all together without anyone having to work or go to school or really have anywhere they had to be at all. It really was nice and such a blessing after the year we have had. I can not believe how lucky we are!
