Jon and I had a lot of fun on our mini vacay or “baby moon”. We flew out Tuesday morning and landed in Orlando around noon. After getting checked in to the hotel, we grabbed some lunch then took a looooonnngggg nap (we won’t be getting many of those soon). After we puttered around Downtown Disney for a little bit, we had dinner and then went putt-putting at Pirate’s Cove (arg matie!).
Wednesday, we had breakfast then headed to Epcot for the morning. We rode Spaceship Earth, the ride in the big globe, and they took our pictures and made this funny video:
We rode a few rides and then rode the Monorail over to Magic Kingdom so Jon could see more of the park. Dad and Jackie flew in around noon so we headed back to the hotel, grabbed lunch with them then rode together back to the park. Jon had never been to Disney World so we thought if we do just one park this visit, Epcot was the way to go. He really enjoyed it and they were having a beautiful Flower Festival where all of the characters were made out of flowers. That’s me with the ostriches of Fantasia and there’s another pic of us with Lady and the Tramp. Jon wore his 1st Time Visitor button so I put one on my belly. It may not have been my first time there but it was Jack’s! :) We walked around the lagoon through the different countries and had a delicious dinner in Japan. It was a lot of fun but a lot of walking for preggo me.
We decided to take it easy Thursday. Dad and Jackie both had conferences there that they were attending so Jon and I drove out to Cocoa Beach for a few hours. We found an awesome food coop there and talked with their owner for a while then laid out on the beach. We had a great lunch watching the cruise ships in port and headed back to Orlando. That night, we had dinner with Dad and Jackie in Celebration, FL – a small town concept Walt Disney had that came to fruition in the mid-1990’s. Very interesting and cute place. Friday, we rested, spent more time with Dad then flew back. It was a great trip!! Thank you all so much for your prayers!!
Jack’s doing great. He’s been kicking more than ever and we’re seeing and feeling more of his little features like feet and elbows (or knees). It’s pretty crazy but oh so fun! Can’t believe he’s going to be here in just 2-3 months. :) Here’s my 28 weeks bump picture (braving it in a bikini – eek!!):
