MIA in Florida

I know that I have been gone for awile, but let me show you what we were up to! 

1.  Trevor, Ava and I headed out at 4:30 am to go to the airport

our first snowfall
Ava went running out after Trevor
and fell, she didn't like that
her hands got wet and cold
now I don't know what she thinks of the snow 
loved riding the moving walkway 

2.  We landed in FL, we went to play some football.  Trevors team made it to the Nationals for AYF.  Their team ended up placing 3rd which was a little disapointing, they were expected to WIN it all.  Well a team from NY, did much better than we did.  Trevor is the Kicker and Safety.

3.  While we were in FL, we HAD to go to Disney.  We did all the parks and got totally exhausted.  We even went and did Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure one day.  Ava did great all week.  She slept in the stroller, on benches and couches.  She was such a trooper and she LOVED it all.  She is definately my girl as she loves all the rides already.  Not that she was tall enough for most of them, but the ones she was she loved.

Ava watching Lion King show.
She was mesmerized by it all
She loved all the shows we did 
Cat in the Hat at Universal Studios Islands of Adventure

Rip, Ride, Rock It!
thats trevor with his hood up, it was cold!

 Watching Beauty and The Beast, she loved it again!
while waiting for Trevor as he was riding Rockin roller coaster
we waited in the store (it was cold)
Ava found this Rockin Mickey and was giving him kisses 
Its a bugs life 

Star Wars
It was beautiful
We went 3 times to watch the
Candelight Processional
It was absoultly wonderful
really rings in Christmas 
riding the tram to Magic Kingdom 

Its a Small World ride
(Ava just ate a PBJ sandwich,
notice it around her mouth) 
lighting of the Castle

Osbournes Spectacle of Dancing Lights
at Hollywood Studios!
Really neat to see

waiting for the parade 

Downtown Disney

4.  We got stranded in FL for an extra 3 days.  Now that might sound great when the temperature at home is a high of 8 degrees, but let me tell you, FL was downright cold also.  Highs of only 39 with wind.  burrrrrr.  And I missed my family.  10 days is a long time to be away from them.

Ava loved her Ice Cream cone 

5.  We finally made it home, and we are now getting ready for Christmas.  It is crazy busy around here!

Yay! So fun. We were in Disney last January and had to wear our winter coats b/c of the cold.

We're going to try to make it down there next December - I'm glad to hear Ava liked it so much.

Looks like you had so much fun! Ava is so good at taking pictures!!! We are going to Disney this spring and I'm already worrying about Grace waiting in lines. I've come to grips with the fact that I won't get any pictures of her actually looking at the camera :)
