2011 was a crazy year for our family. It was definitely one of those years that you are glad is over. Honestly, the first half could have been ok, but then came April. We were hit with things from every side. And just when it seem to ease up, we were knocked back down. It wasn’t until mid-November that we started to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
We didn’t let 2011 get the better of us, a matter of fact we saved the best for last. We ended that crazy year with some wonderful family moments that we won’t forget. The biggest was our family vacation to Walt Disney World.
It was a whirlwind trip. We spent 5 days on the Disney Resort and we visited every theme park. The boy was just the right height to ride most of the rides and the perfect age to meet the characters.
Unfortunately, he’s not a fan of the dark. So, we had to talk him through several rides the first time…and I mean the tame ones. Such as, Finding Nemo at Epcot.
Now, roller coasters that was a different story. Two of his favorite all times rides were found at Magic Kingdom. He rode Big Thunder Mountain Railway and Splash Mountain several times. I unfortunately got stuck in the front and had to walk around like this all morning…
Good thing the weather was nice.
It was such a blessing to end 2011 with this family vacation. I couldn’t have asked for a better ending.
If I learned anything last year, it is to count your blessings. Hold on to the good. It gets you through the rough patches.
