A Week of Disney Magic!

Ahrrrrrrr. . . Ahoy Mateys!!!

"Hey daddy!! What are you doing with that camera??!!!"

Epcot's Spaceship Earth

Me and my girl at Marakesh restaurant in Morocco

Lovely belly dancer at Marakesh--right next to our table!!!

Trying out some Moroccan food. . . hmmmmmm. . .

Psychedelic photo of Ya Ya and me in "It's a Small World"

Ya-ya donning her "Minnie-gear"--great smile!!!

Great shot of Cinderella's castle--nice work capturing the reflection, Geoff!!

Anna Grace's face says it all--there is nothing more magical than a moment with Minnie Mouse!

One of the best full-stage shows at Disney! Lion King is absolutely breath-taking!!

Yes, that is real fire he is twirling in a circle--extremely close to his bare skin!!!

We didn't capture the full costume of this dancer--he was dancing on stilts--incredible!

Lion King's costuming was simply a work of art

Just learning how to do the night-time photography. Fireworks at Epcot. . .

My sweetie and me at the Coral Reef restaurant--in the Living Seas

The whole gang at our favorite restaurant of the week---O'Hana's at the Polynesian Resort. If you want an incredible experience and food to die for---you MUST go to this restaurant! And, what's really cool is that you can see the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom through the glass wall of the Resort--after your dinner!

Anna Grace is completely star-struck with the beautiful Polynesian lady who entertained at O'Hana's! She got all the children dancing and making music--and they all got flower leis for participating!!

Okay, Pocahontas is now one of Anna Grace's most favorite princesses. Her comment was, "My eyes match her necklace"--My girl loves her princesses

Geoff and his mom

We just returned from one of the most wonderful trips! Disney truly is "the happiest place on Earth"!! Ya ya (Geoff's mom) flew down and spent the week with us and Mickey Mouse! I am amazed by this lady. She will turn 81 in a couple of months and she walked those parks for 5 days and didn't miss a beat!! She rode the water rides at Typhoon Lagoon and made friends with all the people around her in the lines. She is a breast cancer survivor and years ago had bypass surgery (6 bypasses!!!) Wow, Ya ya!! You are one tough and amazing lady!!

Anna Grace enjoyed the Disney magic and none of us wanted to leave! The one thought that kept recurring to me as we went through our magical days at Disney is that perhaps the next time we go, we will be able to bring Anna Grace's sister with us. . . I sure hope so!
