Kevin recently was selected to go to a conference and it just happened to be at one of the Disney World hotels! So we decided that Kaitlyn and I would tag along. We only told her we were going to Florida though- we didn’t tell her she was going to be at Disney. While Kevin was in his conference, Kaitlyn and I hung out with the family.
On Wednesday, Kaitlyn, Opa, Grandma, and I went to Sea World. I had an epic case of pregnancy brain though. I could swear that I had put the camera in my bag. Nope… Kevin checked during lunch. Never unpacked it totally left it in the case, in his carryon bag. So… no pictures from Sea World. Kaitlyn loved it though! Things she is still talking about: the penguin exhibit was too cold for her, Shamu splashed her, the thunder was loud, and she loved the polar bear. She is still sleeping with the stuffed polar bear that Opa bought for her.
Kaitlyn was also excited to sleep over Oma and Opa’s house that night. I was excited too, since Kevin had tried turning our hotel room into a walk-in freezer the night before.
While there, she got to see some baby pictures of me. Her verdict… “Oma looks different” and “Opa looks weird”!
On Thursday, we went over to Spring Hill. Uncle Robert had an appointment and then we were going to head up to the cemetery. While in Spring Hill we got to have a short visit with Great Aunt Marybeth- although Kaitlyn decided to play shy. We also had a quick lunch at Wendy’s. After years of living with a crappy store up here it was almost a shock to go into one that was well-run. I almost forgot how much fun it is to go into one where Opa is a “celebrity”
Friday, was Kevin’s final day at his conference. Since it was only a half day for him we had planned to go to the hotel pool in the morning, but Mother Nature had other plans. So instead, we headed over to Downtown Disney.
This picture is all for Great Aunt Pam and Great Uncle Bill
For lunch we went to House of Blues. Baby Girl loves spicy foods and I REALLY wanted some jambalaya. Of course, I thoughtfully texted a picture of it to Uncle Robert! Kaitlyn and Opa loved their chocolate mousse!
After lunch we went and saw Rio 2 at the movies since it had decided to downpour again. Then Kevin met up with us as we walked around a bit more and did some shopping.
Saturday, we headed off to the Magic Kingdom. It was a bit drizzly all morning which kept the crowds down nicely. We walked right on to almost all of the rides. The only thing we had to wait in lines for was to meet the various princesses. My only disappointment was the Haunted Mansion remained broken down all day, so I didn’t get to ride it. Guess we will have to make another trip down soon!
Much to Kevin’s delight they were celebrating Star Wars the day we were there. It just so happened that the restaurant we had reservations at had a special meet and greet with the characters and the food was all Star Wars themed too.
