Walt Disney World

Last week, we embarked on what might very well have been our last family vacation.  We will take more vacations, but the likelihood of having all of the kids available for a trip like this continues to become more remote with each passing year.  So, we decided to make this one memorable and went to Walt Disney World.

We had been at Disney World back in 2002.  Caleb and Peter were still in a stroller, so they don't really remember anything from that trip.  Peter, of course, was not even born yet, so this was all new to him.

We spent Tuesday at the Magic Kingdom, Wednesday at Epcot, and Thursday at Disney's Hollywood Studios park.  We camped at Fort Wilderness for four nights.  The rest of the time was driving there and back.

Our first stop, however, was the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Faith was eager to visit and to have her picture taken with a Pat Summitt (former Tennessee Lady Vol's coach) statue by the U. of Tennessee arena.  Due to some renovations at the Hall of Fame, we got free admission, but we missed out on a few features they had.  Faith was not too broken up about what we had missed.

We had a lot of rain at Disney World.  Don't let the photos below fool you.  Tuesday was rain on and off throughout the late afternoon and evening.  Epcot had rain pretty much all day on Wednesday.  But at least it was still 80 some degrees, so we chose to get wet and still go through the park.  It would have been nice to eat at all the countries which were featured there, but time, money, and calories made that impossible.  On Thursday, we had bright sun all day, and it got pretty toasty, too.

I had taken over 500 photos for our trip.  I am only posting six.  Enjoy!

NOTE: The Pluto had that Nathanael is wearing was purchased back in our 2002 trip.
