|Mimi learns we're|
going to Disneyland!
I made a quick stop en-route to Orlando at my son's house to pick up a car seat, their double stroller, and all of their luggage. This works out perfectly! It will greatly ease their trek through the airports a couple of days later. I arrived in time for lunch and stayed a couple of hours visiting over lunch, where I made the announcement to the grandkids that we were all going to Disneyworld. They knew they were going on a trip on an airplane but didn't yet know the destination. My son saved that announcement for me to make over lunch. Awesome! They were excited!

Monday morning I headed to the nearby Publix to shop for groceries for the week. But not before walking over to the hotel for a Starbucks cappuccino. Life is good!
I have quite a few friends living in Florida, many of whom live within an easy drive or motorcycle ride from the greater Orlando area. So whenever I come to Florida, I call a lunch get-together and am always pleased with the number of folks who join us. Many of these friends are retired, so a weekday lunch get-together is always welcome.
I posted a Tuesday lunch on the MTF forum and many folks responded. We all met at Cherry Pocket on Lake Pierce for a wonderful visit and outdoor lunch in beautiful weather.
Tomorrow - Wednesday - the family arrives by plane and we'll have several days to play together! We have Disneyworld 2-day passes for everyone, passes to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party Thursday night, and hopefully will get lots of pool time in at the resort's fabulous pool complex!
I picked the family up at the airport a little before noon on Wednesday and after feeding them lunch, and letting Mimi take a nap, we all headed over to the pool for the afternoon. First the big pool, and then we moved over to the wonderfully child-appropriate Splash Pool. The kids loved it!
