The day prior to our early morning departure, I was still in denial that I had to pack up 4 people for a long vacation and thus, had not packed, nay, not even staged, anything prior to getting the girls into bed. It was a long night and yet, here we were, waiting to board for our flight out. "Everyone, cross your left leg over your right prior to boarding."
First stop was Orlando and our long-time friend's house, Kelly and Tony. To say it kicked our vacation off on the right note is an understatement. It has everything a kid could want: other kids, a pool, several dogs and cats, fish, birds, a horse in a stable nearby and doting adults.
Wekiwa Springs, the sight of one of our first dates. I remember that this was the first time Len and I talked about having children (jumping the gun a bit since it was still early in our relationship!).
The spring stays at an even 72 degrees year round which, in summer, feels incredibly cold! It was hard to get in!
