|Little bits of magic and tons of surprises.|
I can't believe that in a handful of days, we will be totally immersed inside the magic of Disney for a delightful mini-break. I can't believe it because 1) it's flippin' hot and 2) we haven't stayed overnight for any length of time in 4 years. Sure, we go for a day at least once a month or so but this time, we get to stay! Trust me, we will be one of the crazy families who is at the Magic Kingdom until 2 a.m. - it's what we do.
We all know that I don't do much without making a list or planning it out and vacation is no different really. I broke down the days we would be there and worked out the extra magic hours to create a rough itinerary... optimizing the days. We'll get up "early" and go to a park and then, by lunchtime, we will return to our resort and swim in the pool all afternoon until about supper, then return to the park until close... possibly ending the day back in the pool. A lot of people who are there on vacation don't understand that breaks like these are necessary to survive the brutal Florida heat. The parks aren't going anywhere... it isn't a sprint people, it's a marathon and you need to pace yourself. Shoot, on one of the days, I even scheduled us all a nap - because how else will you survive until 2 a.m.?
Inspired by our upcoming vacation, I made Hobbit a little present. For those of you who have already asked on Ravelry, yes I do plan on releasing the pattern - I am in the process of gathering testers to validate my first ever crochet design. To say I am pleased with it would be an understatement... even more so when applied to Hobbit. At least now I know she won't melt because she'll be able to have her water with her at all times.
