A little winter sunshine

2.06.2012

If you were wondering about my shop announcement last week, we just returned from gorgeous Florida! It isn't especially cold here in Indiana this winter, but it was still wonderful to get away from the unrelenting drizzle and enjoy sunshine, blue skies, and 70 degree weather. We embarked on our (now) annual family trek to Disney World, and again experienced amazing improvements from both of our kiddos. As you may remember, our boys are both autistic, and not only was this trip a vacation, it was also a year's worth of therapy crammed into a week. Entirely worth every sore muscle from pushing a 60 lb. kid around in a stroller all day.

The highlights:

Remembering to not step on the metal plate below this umbrella in order to avoid literally Singing in the Rain (Hollywood Studios)

Getting an earful from the 3 amigos that my clever husband called over to us just as I was opening a package of cookies. If you want to see Kim squeal and freak out, just watch what happens when birds approach her while she's holding food (long story short: picture an 11 year old Kim innocently eating french fries + a vicious pack of seagulls at Sea World. Yeah.)

And speaking of cramming, I have no idea how these guys all fit in one teacup. But the result? Best tea party ever.

If you're not a Disney nut like me, then thanks for humoring me with this post. If you are a Disney nut, then you'll definitely want to read this book for planning your next trip, and subscribe to Touring Plans if you are interested in finding less crowded dates to visit. And if you want to keep up-to-date on the new Fantasyland expansion, keep an eye on this website.

Happy stitching!
Kim

  3. I have a son with an ASD and I've wondered how he'd do at Disneyland. Glad to see your boys enjoyed themselves.
