Last week, my family and I went to Florida for spring break. We spent about 10 days in the beautiful, sunny, tropical climate of central Florida and here is just a glimpse into our trip.

When we arrived at our destination, our condo unit wasn’t ready so we had to find something to do. Hmm. What could we possibly do for 4 hours while we wait? Well…….swim of course!! When our unit was finally ready, we unpacked our stuff into the proper places, and then met up with our cousins, aunt, uncle, and Grandpa.

We went to R.C. Sproul’s church for the 9:30 service which is called, St. Andrews Chapel, which is in Sanford. Then after the service we went back to our condo to go swimming.

We drove to the Atlantic Ocean and we were there for only about 40 minutes, when a storm came rolling in!! This was the first time my sisters and I had been to the ocean!
So we left because of the storm. Then we drove to a camp that my Grandpa and Dad had been to and got to meet the man who started the camp and also went on a quick tour. It was a short visit, but a nice one. When we got back to our condo, we went to Downtown Disney (now called Disney Springs) and rode the ferry and the busses. Then we went to Fort Wilderness Campground and watched an outdoor movie. That night’s show was, Oliver and Company. Before each movie, the campground lights the campfires and has a sing-along with Chip and Dale. Every night is a different movie!!

Tanner, Emma, Cooper, and Ember went into Animal Kingdom with Grandpa and the cousins. The rest of us went swimming and then we made lunch for the gang and delivered it to them at the park. Later we picked up Wendy’s for them for dinner and surprised them with a mini frosty!! Aren’t we so nice?!?!

All of us went into the Magic Kingdom. It was pretty crazy with our fast passes!
To make sure we got a picture with all the girls, we did that first thing because who knew how the day would work out!
We took our lunch to Tom Sawyer’s Island and ate under a pavilion next to the water and we were able to watch the parade in the Kingdom during lunch. Oh, I wish you were there to see the giant fire breathing dragon, Maleficent! She was actually magnificent!! Then after exploring the island for a while, we had to wait to get on the raft to get back to land. Thankfully we had a game to play while we were waiting! Is there anything that Disney doesn’t think of?? I was so tired, can you tell?!! And my brother was a little to intense in playing the game, don’t you think? Or maybe he was just tired also. Ha ha.
We were going to get a picture with the whole group but we got split up so we just took separate family pictures. See what I told you earlier?
We walked through Cinderella’s Castle and they have a bunch of the pictures in there. I only got a picture of one.
We finally all found each other and got a group picture in front of “Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid”.
Every night there is a fire work show on the castle and here’s a picture. Isn’t it beautiful!!
We still hadn’t done Big Thunder Mountain and time was getting away from us! So, we all grabbed hands and off we ran! Half way there, four girls saw us and asked if they could grab on, and we said, “Sure!” so we grew to eleven!!

We all slept in and some of us woke up around 11:00 a.m…except Tanner and Cooper who went to the water parks, Blizzard Beach, and then Typhoon Lagoon. Shortly after we woke up, the girls and I (and Mom and Dad) went shopping at Downtown Disney.
We went to the Lego Store and we had to get a picture with Woody! Can you guess what he’s made of?
Here we are at Fort Wilderness Lodge: a giant log cabin. To get here from Downtown Disney, we took a ferry to another ferry to a bus to a bus to a boat. Whew!!
Here we are again at Fort Wilderness Campground watching, Moana.

We went to the pool and took a ton of pictures!
Unfortunately, my cousins had to leave to catch their plane home, but before they left, we spent the day swimming and playing “keep away” in the water. We had so much fun!! After they left, we went to Clearwater Beach on the Gulf of Mexico.

We left Florida, along with a billion other people, and stopped in Atlanta to visit my other cousin and we stayed with him for the night!! Thanks, Brad!!

We finished driving home and arrived about 12:00 a.m.
