This year we decided was the year for us to tackle Disney World!  And tackle we did, and Disney promptly kicked our butt!  We left with sunburns, heat exhaustion and no money, but ohhhhhh the memories...  
With Alayna being 7 we figured this would be the perfect age to get the whole Disney experience, and we did experience a lot!  Such great memories for ALL of us....

Mickey Mouse pancakes to kick off our vacation...

Girls waiting to hop on the bus to go to Animal Kingdom.

Photo op at Animal Kingdom.  Best part of this day was the  "Life of a Bug" and seeing the musical "Finding Nemo".

Here you go, Grandpa Bob!

We were at Epcot only for the evening, but were able to see Minnie Mouse (Alayna's favorite!).

I think the highlight of the whole trip was scoring a table at Cinderella's Palace for breakfast.  I had tried to get tickets to no avail (I didn't know you had to get them 6 months in advance), but as we were walking through the castle, they announced that they had a table available!  WOOT WOOT!  It was such an incredible experience.  We got to visit with Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine and Ariel.

It just so happened to be Mr. Z's birthday too, and I promised I would not tell anyone...uh huh...sorry bud.

Thursday we drove to Clearwater beach, it was a beautiful day, hot and sunny!
It was such a great vacation, and I am happy that it's one more thing to check off our summer bucket list!!!!
