Disney Trip!

Sorry I didn't have my usual Friday Feature post for you yesterday- I've been a slacker and have been trying to get settled into "real" life after our vacation. I did want to show a few photos from our trip. We had a really good time. I don't know who had more fun; me or the Con-Man! 

Before I get into that I did want to mention a few little changes I made around here. With all the talk about Blogger getting rid of the Google Friend Connect for non-Blogger platforms I went a head and added the Linky tool app. I didn't know of any other options- so we'll check it out together and see how it goes! I'm also on Google+ but have never really used it. Maybe it's time I did.... So I went ahead and added that link if you want to follow along that way. I'm still figuring it out myself so we'll see how that goes as well. 

Con-Man ready to go!

So anyway- enough boring stuff, the first day of our trip we went to Universal Studios. And that means Harry Potter World!!!! I am a huge Harry fan so this was a big deal for me. We saw Hogwarts, walked through Hogsmead, rode the rides, everything! (And of course I forgot my camera this day so all I had was my phone.)

The Butterbeer was amazing! The Chocolate Caldrons- to die for! Still have to eat my chocolate frog. (And I found a recipe for Butterbeer I have to try!)

The next day we started at Disney. Con-Man was so excited to see Mickey and Minnie! I thought he might be afraid of them but he gave them big hugs and everything.

Mickey knew the LSU fans were coming and did the flowers just for us!

He rode all the rides and wasn't afraid of any of them. And he met some more of his favorite characters.

We got that Child Swap thing down to a science and even found time for swimming.

It was a fun trip but I will say not relaxing! I needed a vacation after this vacation. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Looks like so much fun! I've had this discussion with friends before: did you feel like he was old enough to enjoy the trip or do you wish he was a little older? I can't wait to take our son to Disney!

Disney is such a blast! Jesse and I went for our honeymoon and it was great. We actually want to save up and go again before we have kids because we had such a great time, but I agree it's exhausting.
