Well, we had a wonderful vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida with Tressie, Emily and Justin! I have been experiencing technical difficulties in trying to download pictures off of a new memory card that I got for the trip....Then, after finally getting them downloaded, I discover that most of them weren't worth downloading. My camera has not been taking very good pictures. I am sure that part of the problem is me and part is the camera. Luckily, Emily took her camera and got some great pictures on the trip! You can look at Tressie's blog at tressiegolding.blogspot.com to see some of the fun times we had!
I did manage to get a few good shots. I love the expression on Tressie's face in this picture! This was our first morning out and we had just arrived at Magic Kingdom. We actually got into the main gate before the big crowd. We had breakfast reservations and so were allowed in early. (Wish I knew what she was thinking!)
After breakfast, we went to visit with the stars of the show: Mickey and Minnie!! Tressie loved them! It was alot of fun watching her expressions and seeing her so excited!
These pictures are pretty random as like I said, I didn't get many good ones. Most mornings for breakfast, Tressie had waffles shaped like Mickey Mouse. They were pretty tasty too!
We stayed at Pop Century resort on the Disney grounds. Described in a tour book as a vivid celebration of Americana. The larger than life "time capsules" commemorate the toys, fads, dance crazes and catchphrases of the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and early 90's. Huge items such as yo-yo's, hula hoops, eight-track players, big wheels, bowling pins decorate the buildings and grounds of this fun resort! Here Tressie is posing with her friend Goofy! Notice she is wearing her hair bow and her Minnie ears!
At Disney's Hollywood Studios park they have a show called "Playhouse Disney-Live on Stage". This was before we went in. It seems like she is telling us, "I know these guys"! This was one of her favorite things on the trip! Maybe Emily will post some of the pictures of Tressie dancing and enjoying the show! Grandma didn't get any.
It was a great trip with excellent weather, good flights and lots of fun making family memories. Sure, Tressie won't remember the trip, but hopefully she will enjoy the pictures and the stories. And, MAYBE we will do it again some time!
Grandma is seriously saving her money to buy a new camera!
