After graduating from college, Aaron and I have regularly visited and vacationed with our close friends as a way to keep in touch. There are many times this included 1,000+ miles road trips and weekend home stay, and other times, visits to theme parks, such as Cedar Point, the North American roller coaster capital. In the case of Ashly and Ian, we have tried to visit each other at least once every six months, no matter how far apart we lived.
These trips are hardly ever discussed on the blog or even mentioned to people in real life for privacy reasons (most of the time, we just disappear on a trip and no one but family or close friends know we’ve been gone) but this time around, I am posting pictures from my MacBook as I vacation because we decided to spend 6 days and 5 nights at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida, and I have a three-year-old niece who wants to see as many pictures as possible of the place where the Princesses (Aurora, Jasmine, Belle, Snow White, Cinderella) live. As a promise to her, regular updates are going online so she can see our adventure. I’m even attending a Princess Breakfast with a group of children specifically to get pictures of the Princesses for said niece, which is not, shall we say, my usual scene. But I’m excited about it because I know how happy it will make her.
We heard from Ashly and Ian. They have been re-routed to Charlotte, North Carolina, and will finally make it to Orlando, Florida, by 7 or 8 p.m. tonight. Aaron and I are here and it is only 2 p.m. in the afternoon so we have a lot of time. We’re going to head toward Downtown Disney to look at the shops.
