Once the meet and greet was over I told my dad I had a very special treat I wanted to get him. I took him over to Aloha Isle and introduced him to the famous Dole Whip Float. Our preferred float is the pineapple whip with orange juice so I got one to share. My dad loved it! While we enjoyed our float Andrew wheeled Caitlin around Adventureland so she could get some pictures.













When we finished our float we all boarded our boat for a jungle cruise.















I realized my dad hadn't been in any of the pics yet so I took the camera from Cait and got one of her and her grandpa.



Our next stop was


Dead men tell no tales....






Yoho,YoHo a pirate's life for me...




Once we were back on land we headed over to BTMRR. The ride was down so the guys got fastpasses so they could ride later. We then headed on over to Caitlin's favorite





Don't you love how they updated this queue?




Once inside, Cait got some more pics. She always follows the rules so no flash was used!






When we escaped the Haunted Mansion we decided we were all hungry and in need of a little break so we decided it was time for lunch! I'll end here though and let Caitlin tell you about that next time.

Thanks for reading!

Great morning in the MK!

It is honestly just the new camera. We don't edit or photoshop our pics so the camera deserves all the credit.

Nice review - excited for your Grand Floridian stay! Where will Caitlin be doing her Masters - LA or MI?
It's so nice that your Dad goes on all "big" rides
Very cute Castle pics - I'm sure they made wonderful Christmas cards.

Thank you! We can't wait!
Caitlin will be doing an online program while she is in LA. There isn't a college near the base.
My dad was really awesome about going on all the rides with Andrew. He enjoyed them and it gave him a chance to get to know Andrew better so it was a win-win situation.
Thanks. They were very cute

Yay, 53 days until your trip! That is very exciting about staying at the Grand Floridian for a night.

Aww, that is sad if Periwinkle is already gone from the parks. I wanted to meet her.

Thank you. Caitlin finally gets to live out her favorite "Full House" episode

Aww, that is sad if Periwinkle is already gone from the parks. I wanted to meet her.
From what I have read she has been replaced by Rosetta. I hope you get lucky and get to see her though!

Enjoyed your update.

Those are really cute pictures of Caitlin and Andrew.

Wow, I can't imagine how tough this all must have been for her- being tired and in pain but so wanting to enjoy the moments for everyone.

Sounds like a wonderful initiation to the MK for Andrew!

Sorry if this was mentioned earlier- what is the new camera you are using on the trip?

As others have said, amazing pictures! The photos in HM and Pirates in the dark are awesome!


Your plans for the graduation trip sound great! I love your splurge at the end of the trip.

Wow - the colors are really, really fantastic. I thought for sure you saturated them a bit more. NICE! I want that camera. I would certainly love to see color like that.

Thank you. You really wouldn't know how sick she was from those pictures!

Wow, I can't imagine how tough this all must have been for her- being tired and in pain but so wanting to enjoy the moments for everyone.

It was hard for her and it got harder as the day went on...

Sounds like a wonderful initiation to the MK for Andrew!

He really enjoyed the parks. At times it was like having a little kid along

Thank you. The camera is a Sony NEX5 and available at Best Buy. (gotta give em a shout out )

Thank you. It will be our last week together for several months so we are going to make the most of it!

We rarely edit or photoshop our pics. I'm too lazy and this time around Caitlin was too worn out. We love the camera and it's very lightweight too.
