Back from Vacation! Mickey’s Not So Scary Night, Diagon Alley and More…

Well I’m finally back from an amazing 8 day vacation in Florida!  We did a ton, including; Magic Kingdom for Mickey’s not so scary night party, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure!  We spent lots of time on the beach and did some fishing! I even caught a hammer head shark!!! It WAS a baby so of course we threw him back…I’ve never fished in the ocean so it was hilarious when I caught the shark.  Violet screamed and ran for land when I said it was a baby shark.  Guess watching shark week around her had an impact! 🙂  Here’s some highlights of our trip:

Here’s me and the hubby fishing at sunrise…he caught 2 fish.  I caught two the night before we’re even on our fish catching skills!  I DID catch a cooler fish though..the shark:


Catch and release 🙂


Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party was AMAZING! If you ever have a chance to go…GO!  You can get into magic kingdom at 4pm and it’s open until 12am.  There’s a TON to do, parades, tons of characters, rides have short lines (10 min short!), and there’s even a dance party in a club atmosphere for the kids to party with the villains!  It was so fun!  Violet was Cinderella, I was a baseball player (lame, but I wanted to wear running shoes), Jon was Mickey and my husband was a pirate.  Absolutely no rhyme or reason to our costumes but it was fun! Riding the haunted mansion on Halloween was perfect!

Cinderella met Cinderella…it was perfect! No wait…. 🙂


Here’s the family at Universal, leaving the park after a day of too much butter beer and other junk!  I see a cleanse in my future.10347692_842156705808644_8024369187853297185_n

Diagon Alley – WOW. Just Wow.  They REALLY did a good job with it.  We spent hours in just this area of Universal!
