How Many Rides on Pirates of the Caribbean are Enough? Now Completed 11/4/10

It was the last day of school. Students were out, but teachers were in. I was up early that morning completing the last minute efforts in packing the car. The Disney box was sadly empty once more, sitting derelect in a corner of the bedroom. Once more, it was a forgotten memory, a snippet in time. It was all over for the box yet again.

Distinct smells wafted from the kitchen--those of pancakes. It was a normal smell because my husband always makes pancakes in the morning: chocolate chip for the girls, plain for the boy. This morning, there was a distinct difference in the pancake shape, for my dear husband, who makes breakfast every morning and claims he doesn't love Disney, was doing this:





Ah, the sweet taste of freedom, only hours ahead. Minutes, really, until we are at our happy place once more. Orlando, here we come!

Oh, and introductions? Here we are:



Going around the table from the left: dh (Dan), Slugger (age 9), Boo (age 7), me (Amanda), and Sweetie (age 10)

And really, is there any better reason for the box to be empty?

There are never enough rides on POTC, especially if you are seeking a respite from the Florida heat!

I know--he can't resist the pancakes (Neither can I). He did the same thing for our MNNSHP trip in 2008

First of all, I'll keep him, thankyouverymuch. Second, since in about a year we'll be going again, I think I should drag out the box again.

I can't wait to post about the Lapu Lapu.

That was the main reason for the rides on Pirates. It was always so hot there!

I wanna join in on your fun! I can't think of a better way of starting a morning that Mickey shaped pancakes.

We've only been home from Disney a week and already Disney withdrawals are setting in. I can't wait to read all about your adventures.

Mickey pancakes - what a fun thing for your husband to do. Too sweet.
