Lots of leaves and pine needles

It's still Fall here, leaves and pine needles are falling weekly, who knows when they will stop falling!

When it's windy, pine needles and leaves rain down and cover the lawn

Endless bags of pine needles and leaves

Journey into DisneyWorld

When one family takes a trip to Disneyworld, said family 'does not simply walk into Disneyworld'.

Us waiting on a tram to leave the parking lot to get to the gates......

us walking from the tram to the line to get onto a ferry.....

us waiting for the ferry boarding......

us on the ferry going across the lake to the Magical Kingdom.....

AND finally, said family gets to walk through the gates, just in time to watch the awesome Main Street Electrical Parade! You see the incredulity on my face that we are actually there....

Pete's dragon float

We left Marietta on Saturday around 9:30am and got to Disneyworld around 5:30 that evening. We ate some dinner and went right into the park and after a long journey, maybe 2 hours later, we were watching the parade and also got to see a projection show on the face of the castle. It was really crowded, but really worth it to go at night to see those shows.

Disneyworld: Epcot and Magical Kingdom

Amazing window display on Main Street.

Right when we got into Epcot, we tried to get everyone together for a nice family portrait in front of Spaceship Earth, the kids fought against it.
