So we're back from our Disney World vacation. Although I use the word "vacation" loosely because when you have two children ages two and under, it's really more of taking all the things you do in everyday life to keep your kids alive... and then adding more. So sunbathing by the pool, drinking something frosty and pink, it is not.

It's schlepping bags and strollers and packing and unpacking and trying to work it all around nap times and feeding schedules and then by the time you sort of get the hang of it, it's time to go home and get everyone back into their regular schedules and routines.

Now before my sweet mother reads this and gets upset and thinks we had a terrible time...(I know you, mom)...It was still fun. It was exhausting, but fun. Charlotte loved all the rides, and meeting her favorite characters. I'm just a bossy control-freak (please pretend to be suitably shocked) and constantly worry about the girls being too hot, too cold, too hungry, too tired, too this, too that.  I'm trying to work on it.
But see, look. Proof of a family vacation.

And by the time we get ready to go again we will have magically forgotten all the tired, cranky parts 
and just remember almost coming to blows with my husband over the best way to fold up a stroller in front of lots of staring people  the fun parts :)

    Such a beautiful family! You look great!! Glad you had fun on your trip - it can definitely be exhausting lugging two kids and all their stuff around. :-)

  2. hahaha - parents should be canonized. i mean REALLY.

  3. Wow, Bri. Given the picture above, it looks like vacation was great!! I am sure you are bending over just to be closer to the children (not because you are so weary from exhaustion that you can no longer stand up!!) and that Charlotte only looks so distraught because she is wondering why Goofy would walk past her without speaking (not because she herself is weary and tired from this "vacation"!!). Are these the things I have to look forward to as a wife (and hopefully mother) in the near future??
