We went on vacation, and I slacked off. Then I brought home a souvenir of the microbial variety, and I just haven't been up to thinking. Now that that's all in the past, let me ramble about everything for which I was thankful on vacation.
I am thankful for the excitement of first experiences. Mikey got his first taste of rides at the state fair in October, but he got to go on some all by himself at Busch Gardens. We couldn't get him out of there! The poor thing cried at Disney every time someone went on a ride without him. It's hard to be little.
|My children never ceased to be fascinated by the Epcot ball|
|Ellie got her first taste of big-people rides...and she's hooked|
Here they're headed to Splash Mountain, which is now her favorite ride
I am thankful for deepening passions.
|Ellie was too scared to feed the dolphins just a few months ago. This time she couldn't have had enough fish to throw!|
|It's one thing to see wildlife that we've read about in books. It's another thing to see that wildlife really does start out as a baby, just like us.|
|Beautiful Spanish moss|
I'm thankful for play.
