This is the only photo of me from the entire trip, probably because I was the one behind the camera, but also because, well, taking little ones to a theme park? It is MAD CHAOS. But in between the frequent bathroom stops and occasional melt-downs (like the one above, resulting in our first and last time posing for the Disney photographer), I was able to see the parks through my nephews’ eyes, and that was pretty magical.
My parents drove down from Ohio with their dogs, and my sister, brother-in-law, and their two kids flew down from Ohio. Husband and I drove up to Orlando to meet them. We took Zoey and stayed in an AirBnB motel, which was not the greatest experience — it was a total dive. Thankfully, we spent most of the time outside or at my parents’ and sister’s rental.
