Our Vacation in Numbers

2 Adults
3 Children
7 days
10 pieces of carry-on luggage
6 Airplanes, 1 Prop Plane, 5 Jets
6 Different Airports
4 Layovers totaling 10 hours of waiting.
18 hours of flying
2 Cancelled Flights
2 Delayed Flights
1 Unexpected overnighter in New Jersey
4 new States "visited"

2 amazingly generous Grandparents
2 bestest Aunts
1 super fun Uncle
80 degree weather
3 bushels of citrus fruits picked

4 pound pummelos with breakfast every morning.
3 Harry Potter wands
(hand carved by awesome Uncle Shane)
3 glasses of butterbeer and 1 golden snitch pin
(brought back from Universal by Aunt Kelsey and Aunt Carlee)

4 Disney Theme parks
$5 bottled water (NOT purchased)
3 picnic lunches at the parks

7 interactive shows

29 amusement park rides

11 fastpasses (a life saver)

1 amazing aquarium (at Epcot)
14 smashed pennies from the machines at the parks.
4 completely unnecessary stuffed animals purchased.
(To add to the collection of hundreds back home. *sigh*)

1 komodo dragon at Disney's Animal Kingdom. (Ellorie's life is now complete.)

3 autograph books (made by mom)

10 character signatures
11 more sighted (besides the shows)
It's estimated that the average person walks 9 to 14 miles per day at Disney World. I'm sure it was pretty close to that. Assuming it was 10 miles per day, we each walked over 40 miles during the week. Averie was such a trooper!

3 lizards caught and later released
1 turtle sighting
3 nights of swimming at the condo
9 delicious "home-cooked" meals at Grandma Gina's Condo.

1 hilarious road sign

4 hours of sleep before our return flight home

10 sleepy people
1 perfect vacation

I'm so glad you had fun!! Florida is one of my favorite places to visit! What a clever idea to make your own autograph books!

We have a huge smashed penny collection at our house. We get one pretty much everywhere they are available.
