and we are back…

9 Feb

7 days. 2 plane rides. 2 hotels. 3 kids. 6 days of being on our feet for 12+ hours. innumerable fantastic memories.

to indulge both m and hook’s obsession with a certain young wizard we hit up uni.versal for the first two days before heading over to hang with the large rodent and his crew at all four of the parks. it was amazing. and exhausting. and exhilarating. and fun. and trying. and incredible. i went in with a bit of trepidation. mostly about sleeping. and traveling. but it all worked out. as i knew it would. we just rolled with it. hook loves to travel. and he was honestly surprised with the trip. and grateful. and in awe. and at times frustrating. but so very excited. and happy. the wigglers were accommodating. napping in the stroller. and somewhat adapting to sleeping in small cribs and/or pac n plays. or at least kinda sleeping in bed with us in the case of cindy lou. the babies were able to go swimming. and run amok in the hotel rooms happily throwing tissues everywhere and standing on the luggage. hook got bolder as the days went on and started to love roller coasters. m and i just rolled with the punches. adjusted plans as needed. and enjoyed our kids. we managed to get trapped on the it’s a small world ride by a technical malfunction. magoo was less than amused. but it was quite comical. cindy lou happily shrieked and clapped through country bear jamboree. and i attempted to keep magoo quite by bfing him. most days someone lost a shoe. or in one case even a shirt. hook dropped his wand (it broke a little) and completely melted down. all of the kids ran around in fountains that randomly shot water from the ground laughing and getting soaked. while a crowd of nearly 30 people gathered around to watch. m and i overindulged. in food. and booze. and spending. but it was all completely worth it. i can’t really say what my favorite part of our trip was. it all fits together. so many highs. and very few lows. all together it paints a pretty amazing picture.

and we have returned. the mouse clearly had it’s way with us. evidenced by the plague that is now running rampant through our house. but luckily it held off until our return. or at least close to it. and it’s just another story we can tell when we look back on our vacation in years to come.

    Sounds like an amazing time. I’m gonna have to start reading books about a certain young wizard with my kiddos soon, so I can use them as an excuse to go!
