Waiting to see Mickey and Minnie backstage. Riley seemed to remember what was coming from our last visit to Disney. Brock, who was scared last time, did much better this time! Brock took a nasty fall so we went back to our room for a while and took a rest. We headed back later so we could see the parade and fireworks show. We found an awesome spot on the parade route to watch. No one was there until halfway through. We had a million pictures of the parade but I'll spare you. Very rude people wouldn't quite running in front of us during the fireworks so I didn't get anything good from that! The boys were DONE when we got back to the room. The next morning we couldn't convince Brock to wake up. All he wanted to do was sleep! Next we head back to The Villages!

It drizzled on and off our entire day at Disney. It made for cooler temps and shorter lines. We didn't care that we were a bit soggy! Pinocchio The castle! We didn't go inside the castle last time but it was the perfect spot to avoid the rain for a bit. And it was so neat inside! Merry Go Round fun. Another way to escape the wet--see a show! Waiting in line. We didn't know yet that Goofy was about to be here. Then a soggy Goofy showed up and had to be dried off before he was ready for his close up. The rest up in a bit!

And for another impromptu trip.....we got out of school Thursday for Spring break. We decided we'd to to Disney Friday morning. We called the resorts and got a reservation for Saturday and Sunday nights. The Guy decided we should go ahead and leave Friday night! So off we went. We stopped in Pensacola(I think) for the night and made it the rest of the way Saturday morning. I forgot SHORTS of all things. The wonderful people at The Swan upgraded our room to a corner suite. It was a treat for Riley's birthday. Resting after a long night and morning doing ALL the driving. Exploring the room. We could see Epcot! Wandering about the grounds of The Swan and Dolphin. Being silly. There was a bus stop for the whole resort at The Swan so we spent some time waiting on a bus each day. Brock started waiting hands on hips. Cracked us up! Our day at Disney up next.

The Guy's birthday wish was to go down to Florida to visit his parents and play a ton of golf. So we took a very long weekend and went on down. This was our first trip to the Villages in Florida and it was amazing! The Guy wants to move down there now but we can't actually live there until we're 50 or 55 so he needs to hold up a bit. We had a really great time. They have live entertainment every night in the two town squares. We went down and listened and danced one night. Brock found nesting dolls and Grandma and Grandpa's! We went to a neat state park with Manatees. Seeing how clear the water is was amazing! They were moving manatees while we were there. We had an awesome visit. Just what The Guy wanted!
