It has been a while since I've posted. We had a wonderful Christmas in Florida, my daughter had 6 days off from work so we got to spend lots of time together. We got home and my dad was here for several days and the past few days have been just trying to get back to some kind of normal around here. I have several posts to share with you, but I really wanted my first post of 2013 to be "different" and this one certainly is!
One of the best things about having a Disney daughter is that she is always showing us parts of Disney that we don't know about. We were aware of Fort Wilderness, but since camping isn't something I do...we had never been to the campground. The girls arranged for us to have a golf cart and on Christmas Eve, the four of us (with me driving) took the golf cart for a spin around the huge campground at Walt Disney World. My first reaction (after I discovered I would be driving the cart on real roads with cars and buses) was, "I would never stay here"! After we spent a couple of hours driving around, visiting with the campers who were so friendly and seeing the decorations which were beyond extreme...I did have an attitude adjustment. I still don't think I'm a camper, but this environment of people saying "Merry Christmas", kids running up to us, amazing food smells and a general atmosphere of joy and family...well, I certainly wasn't in any hurry to leave. The pictures speak for themselves. We had such a great time that I'm sure this will be a Christmas Eve tradition from now on.
I hope you all had a very happy holiday season!
