Fears, tears, fun, and laughter: We survived spring break TR updated 1/29
We survived Spring Break in Florida, there were crowds, there were fears, many tears, and of course some fun and laughter.
We were on vacation from March 11-19 which included our travel time, 4 days in the parks, not the trip we planned but we had a good time.
So first a little background:
I'm Jessica, the Disney obsessed mother, and planner/organizer of this recent trip. Got to celebrate my birthday on this trip And recently became a stay at home mommy and couldn't be happier than to just get to spend extra time with my kids now. It was a hard decision to make, but we feel I really need to be home for at least the next year and a half.
Next is my DH, not such a huge Disney person, but enjoys it, took me to WDW for our honeymoon, and loved getting to experience it with our boys for the first time. He is a teacher so it was either spring break or summer and we weren't ready to brave the heat of summer in florida yet.
Next is Jack, who just turned 6 but was 5 on the trip, he has high functioning autism and is the reason for my overly obsessed planning. The trip was also planned to "celebrate" his birthday, but I'll leave the explanation on that for the TR
And our baby who turned 3 recently, Joey. He is a ball of fun, but has recently been having some issues medically and behaviorally that prompted our decision for me to stay home for awhile.
But that wasn't the end of our whole traveling party, we had some others join in with us:
My sister, BIL, and niece joined us, they reside in NV. My niece is my god daughter and she also got to experience her birthday in Walt Disney World, she was born on St. Patricks Day. She just turned 3.
And my parents joined us. My Dad is retired military and after our trip my Mom has decided she would like to look into seasonal work at WDW.
And lastly my great aunt Bea, she is my Grandmas older sister, and has lived with my parents and been a part of our family since my brother was a baby so about 20-25 yrs.
These were the best pictures I had of everyone for now, our PP should arrive this week and I'll post a big group shot...
Up next everyones travel experiences getting to Florida
