We did it ... Disney World

We actually gave a bit of a teaser about this place ... almost 3 months ago. And now here I am finally adding a post about it.

We made a stop to Disney World to check out what all the hubbub was about. Pretty much, this place is just about every parent's worst nightmare ... spend a TON of money, and get nothing but hassles and stress in return.

Yep - that almost sums it up.

Here's a few of the shots from our day:

Here's a few of the darker side of Keeley. Get a look at her face here.
Notice ... she's losing.

Also notice ... how serious she is while she's losing.

And now ... you can see the smile and enjoyment on her face, here, as she pulls into the lead.

Here's a few shots of the Disney parade. Check out all the characters we got to see. This first one is a classic Disney persona ...

Oh, I guess it's actually just Kait.

Sorry about that!

Here are a few Disney characters though ... Aladdin, Mickey, Cinderella, a rather foxy Cruella Deville, some pirates, plus a whole bunch more we didn't even add in here:

We even grabbed a few, very hush-hush pictures, of Walt Disney himself - fresh from the cryogenic chamber. He was really looking quite young and healthy. Rather dashing - I thought!

Something I haven't seen in a long time, if I've ever seen it at all.
Airplane sky writing:

It says... Jesus 4 'G' - I think it ended up saying Jesus 4 Gives, or something like that. It was neat to see.

There was a cool looking, but fake, water mill house.

And last, but certainly not least ... was Peter Pan holding Tink's house:

And, I just have to say ... if you haven't read the 'Peter' series with your kids ... YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST!

Peter and the Starcatchers
Peter and the Shadow Thieves
Peter and the Secret of Rundoon

Not only will your kids love them ... I guarantee it!

But YOU WILL TOO! I also guarantee that, as well.

I've read hundreds of books in my life, and these are some of the best I've ever read. Reading them with your kids is just an added bonus, to bring your family a little bit closer together. It never hurts!

Oh yes, I am reading Peter and the Shadow Theives now. Not reading this one as fast, taking my time with it. I have Rundoon also, but haven't starte it yet.

OK, so the mill is the best part of this post.
We are hoping to get up to Washington this year to visit a Grist Mill up there.
I spent 20 minutes this morning before work 'gleaning' some wheat on a local field. They sucked the field clean, except for some heads over by a drain. I'd like the kids to know what the Bible means when it talks about Wheat. Planting, harvesting, separating the chaff, grinding, etc.

This mill will let you take up your own grain and stone grind it for free, which is very cool!

PS: I'm not bit on Disney. A lot has been lost since the original ideals.

Come spend tons of money and see a fake world. Exception: Flying over California was cool.

I'd rather spend 1/4 the money and enjoy God's world. (i.e. camping, hiking, beach, etc.)
