I was reminded about how fun vacation is just this morning when Miss T rolled over to me and said "I had a lot of fun at the faraway beach," and giggled. I could not help by giggle myself...even if it was raining the first few days we got there, it was just what we needed after a full year of making Raleigh home.

On a whim the Mister decided hitting up Disney and their Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party was a good idea. I could not believe that it would be his first time, along with the kids. I guess I took it for granted all the times my family would go, as I grew up in Florida. We didn't go all the time but enough that going back was very nostalgic for me. I loved remembering the rides and seeing all that had changed. But I especially loved seeing my kids faces when they realized where they were! Happiest place on earth and the kids were proof of that as they stayed up way past their bedtime and enjoyed ever minute of it.

The weather cooperated for our night at Disney and the kids enjoyed getting dressed up and trick or treating. There was not a lack of candy and the givers were more than happy to dole it out. I think a lot of the adults were there for just that reason. Free candy and you could do it and not get lambasted for being too old to trick or treat.
Anyway, the kids are getting bigger and the items I am required to travel with seems to be dwindling. I'm not sure if we have another "faraway beach" trip ahead of us. It might be time to stick closer to home and start using those flight perks.
