How grateful we are to some old family friends for giving us a day at Disney World! We chose to only spend one day, for we did not know how our little man would handle it all . . . but oh, how he LOVED it! He was such a delight all day (which was an answer to prayer) despite the sun and crowds and minimal napping. We were just able to go to Epcot, but that was plenty for this trip and was so much fun! The only "scare" of the day was when John David chose to drink from someone else's straw in the stroller parked next to ours...(Well, it was a scare for me that is. John David obviously didn't care, and - although David is a sanitary man - living in Africa for a few years caused my husband not to be quite so uptight about such things:) So, Praise the Lord for safety too, which made the day that much better!
Growing up, my family made a trip to Disney Word each summer, so it holds a special place in the nostalgic box of my heart. Although David doesn't have childhood memories here, he does appreciate great imagination and creativity; he himself said it was "Magical." John David proved to have similar sentiments. Thank you - Corey & Dana - for a day we will never forget!
A day at Epcot - A wonderful day indeed!

John David LOVES music & playing instruments...
So we got our hands on as many instruments as we could!
Having fun with Daddy while waiting in line -
thankfully John David was such a great sport all day!
We were thankful to have our cousin Hillary along on
the trip. Having an extra set of hands & eyes, as well
as a family photographer, was such a blessing! Thanks, Hill!
Nap time . . . a much needed break for all!
