Our Spring Break is now a road trip

We went to a Panther’s hockey game.  We went to Legoland Florida with the in-laws.  Then… off to St. Augustine.  ROAD TRIP!  Actually it is not that far… only a 4 to 5 hour drive.  Once we got there, we went to so many places.  The Old Jail, the Old School House, Fort Menednez, the … Continue reading »

A few more Spring Break scrapbook pages done

As I continue to watch what is going on in my life, I will continue to chip away at the spring break scrapbook pages.  Nov 4th, the boys had no school.  I was frustrated as I really need to go to work and earn some money… but the school system does not agree with me. … Continue reading »

Making a come back!

Yep.  Nothing like taking some time off to get your rip raring ready to go.  I started some pages for our spring vacation and then… stopped.  D’oh.  I have so many things on my plate I wasn’t focusing on any one thing.  Time to get organized again.

Epcot, an enjoyable Date to Remember

Goofy and a French clown come foremost to mind, but there were others who made an impression as well. And it was fun to meander through the various showcases that we hadn’t seen together for a number of … Continue reading »

Daughter and I had a delightful trip to Universal Studios Orlando in 1996. Whilst Pan was in his conferences, she and I took off for the theme park, bright and early one morning. Although the Marx Brothers and King Kong dominated our visit, we managed to run into (from one spectrum of time to the … Continue reading »

Leu Gardens in Orlando and a tip

At Leu Gardens, the Bug and I got to spend some much needed sister time. Soon we would not have the opportunity to go exploring, just the two of us. But then that is a whole new adventure awaiting us. It is such a beautiful and serene place. I imagine that the weddings that take … Continue reading »

Disney IllumiNations and Spectro Magic

An evening at Disney’s Epcot, then another evening at the Magic Kingdom. Wish I knew then, what I know now about taking pictures at night. But then I would have needed a better camera too. All in all, the pictures didn’t turn out half bad and still bring back memories of a week well spent. … Continue reading »

Magic in the Air

No trip to Disney would be complete without stopping at the Magic Kingdom for photos and rides. And the colors in Connie Prince’s Main Street Magic kit set the mood for the what is taking place. Lots of character pictures and lots of rides. It is great to look back at the kids and see … Continue reading »

Once Known as MGM

When speaking of MGM the first thing that comes to mind is elegance, even though many of the displays and rides are anything but.

Shows and Tours

Spaced Out ©Kristin Aagard; Template by Jumpstart Designs    What more needs to be said? Watching the Indiana Jones show was nearly like watching the movie, but with the added feature of gullible guests being able to participate. Fortunately we were not chosen. The Star Wars Tours fast became a favorite ride and we went … Continue reading »
