Vacation Day Four

It's our last night in Tampa tomorrow we will drive to Orlando and become entrenched in the World of Disney. There's this little Ben in me, probably about 7 or 8 who remembers watching the "Wonderful World of Disney" every Sunday night at 7 o'clock that is leaping around trying to get a look. My family never travelled beyond the states of Kentucky and a one-time trip to Tennessee so this is something super special to me. I'm not sure how much of it Kammie and Jasey will remember at 4 (Kammie's birthday was yesterday) and 2, I certainly hope they come away with great memories.

Today we said goodbye to Eileen, David's sister. She was heading to the cancer center to begin the mega chemo sessions. She's a beautiful person strong, independent, loving, proud ... and she just wants to go home. She has been in the cancer center (Moffitt) since June, after this current round of treatments and then the bone marrow transplant she will go home. It was so profoundly sad to say goodbye to her. Hopes, prayers, mantras whatever are needed so much during the next coming weeks.

I have not done one crafty thing or gone into any craft stores. It's just so nice to take some time away from even my most favorite activities. Today, we did lunch, tried to do a bit of shopping but two little guys with voices that could shatter glass had other ideas, so for the moment I sit here alone in the hotel room while everyone takes a nap. I'll do another update if it gets interesting. :-)

Thanks for looking and yes HE stamps and vacations!!

  1. Ben, it sounds like you are having a good time, hope you left the dogs home, LOL!!! Are you staying on property at Disney? We always do and think it is the best. Bet the kids would love the All Star Movie resort! Lots of fun just wandering around there with some super cool things to see! Are you going to all of the parks or just Magic Kingdom? Make sure you stop at Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom for breakfast. Get yourself a Cinnamon Roll. They are to die for!!! Sorry, I love Disney and could ramble on about it for days, months, years, LOL!!! Want any tips, let me know! Have a wonderful time and take lots of photos so you can make them a scrapbook to help them remember!
