Disneyworld

It's true, friends, NIL and I went on vacation. It's more than two weeks ago now, since we were in the magical world of Disney. I couldn't face blogging for awhile when we got home. I've been in serious denial about the end of vacation. Really, I was quite cranky about it for several days. Then I was just plain lazy for a few days. But I figure, school's started back up now, so I'd better get this done.

Friends, Disneyworld was AWESOME. I get it, not everyone is wild about a Disneyworld vacation, but ours was hands down spectacular. We had a fantastic hotel, lovely, convenient, even mildly futuristic. The monorail ran through our lobby. We were on a meal plan, and we ate ABSURD amounts of delicious food. I mean, really, freaking absurd. At one point, you can see in the photos, we were UNABLE to finish a DESSERT! I'm not sure there is a record of this ever happening before, either for me, or for Nathan. Absurd. But Delicious. We took tours every single day. On a train tour, the guy said that there were three kinds of people who took the train tour: a) train enthusiasts, b) Disney enthusiasts, or c) drag alongs....people who had no particular interest in either, but were with someone who was either a or b. Nathan and I decided we were in fact a new category : Tour Enthusiasts. We like seeing behind the scenes and getting insider information. Getting to all of these tours was demanding, I kid you not. We slept, on average, five hours a night on our vacation. We saw fireworks shows (totally fun to photograph) and a Cirque du Soliel show (which may have been my favorite part of all, if I had to pick a favorite part.) There are just too many cool parts to write them all down. It's time for a picture slide show. Nathan took plenty of video, and in theory, I was going to experiment with iMovie or something and turn it all into a little montage. But who's kidding who, it's taken me two weeks to write a paragraph about my vacation....a montage might be beyond my reach at this point and time.....

How late were you two partying over there to take shots of the sunrise? Or does the magic kingdom provide that as a courtesy photo op? hee hee...

AWESOME PHOTOS!

And lastly, I cannot tell you how charmed I am with the two of you on your matching Segways. Dude. Words I did not think I'd ever utter.

Okay, this is really the last thing. Dude! Your hair has grown so much already! Or is that an optical illusion? I thought the photo of you after the first big cut looked like you had much shorter hair! Looks like you'll be ready to donate to locks for love again in no time!

I am definitely going to have to reconsider....

Wonderful photos, as always.

Loved the slide show Jenn! You two sure covered a lot of ground--we visited Epcot about four years ago and didn't even finish that. No cool VIP fireworks either... I'm with Goodyear too, great pictures!
