We went on our first major family vacation in several years this month. It included a few days at the Disney World parks and 4 nights on a Disney Cruise. It was a HUGE undertaking on our part, therefore, there are a lot of pages here concerning the trip.
The boys had their first flight in a Jet (actually 2). That was exciting enough.
When we got to Disney World, we dropped our luggage and ran to Downtown Disney. Val designed a rollercoaster and then got to ride it in a simulator. That was cool, but pretty intense and we decided not to do that any more.
Late bedtime and early to rise, we began our first big day. Epcot was amazing for the boys and us. We started at the spaceship earth and wandered the front end of the park from there.
Inoventions displayed many of the latest cool stuff that is on the market today.
Here, a robot welcomes us to the inoventions area.
Also, Val learns how paper is made. Both boys got to make a piece of paper from wood pulp. It was interesting to see the pulp drained and pressed followed by a short stay in the oven to dry it out and result in paper.
The last pictures are our whole family chasing each other in a virtual tag game. I was Mini-mouse and we all played different disney characters trying not to be it. We chased each other around a virtual play area. I ate the most ice-cream! Of course.
