One of the best things to do at Christmas time in Orlando is to check out the different resorts and what they offer for the holidays. Gaylord Palms is right down the road from Disney and offers an array of activities for everyone in the family. You do not have to be staying at the resort to enjoy the activities but if you do choose to stay, there are many options to keep you busy. First is the ICE! display – this year’s theme is Polar Express and it captures the feel of th

Wow! What a last couple of days we have had. School officially ended for the kiddos last week. I think we were as ready for the break as they were. On Friday night, we went to Altitude Trampoline Park. Our neighbors were kind enough to schedule one last meetup for our 3 kids and several of their friends. The kids loved it and could have stayed playing Trampoline Dodgeball all night! There were lots of smiles and hugs and everyone had a great time. We have great neighb

the early arrival of our movers. The 3 of them arrived at

At the time a 6:30am packing session seemed way to early, but after it was all said and done we were so thankful to have our day to enjoy with friends. Once the movers left, we enjoyed a family breakfa

Tonight was one of many upcoming Goodbye’s. Our family enjoyed a great dinner with even greater friends. Leaving those you love when you “Take the Plunge” is the hardest part! On the other hand, we look forward to sharing all the magic Florida had to offer with them! #Epcot #Disney #movingtoFlorida #Florida #Texas #SayingGoodbye #HollywoodStudios #Family #MovingwithKids #Orlando #Friends #Moving #MovingtoOrlando #Relocating #AnimalKingdom
