Florida With Mikayla

On November first, Mike and I left our 5 youngest children with two of his sisters and boarded a plane with Mikayla for Orlando Florida.

First time alone with this girl since Mailee was born in 2001!

Mike had a Maximized Living conference in Orlando.  Mikayla got to see what it's all about first hand and meet a lot of cool people. 
We also made time for a little fun

All dolled up for dinner at Texas De Brazil.

Mike's Mom Linda is one of his CA's (Chiropractic Assistant) so she was in Orlando as well.

It was a lot of meat.
Like a lot a lot.

They brought her an early birthday cake.

Pictures of Disneyworld require few words.
It is such a fun place, so magical, and you can't help but smile your way through the day!
It was fun to go with our big girl and see her enjoy herself without feeling responsible for anyone younger than her:)

Lots of smiles this day.
Beautiful, carefree, happy smiles!

It was that fun

The castle in Disneyworld is Cinderella's.
{Sleeping Beauty's castle is in Disneyland}

We couldn't get over the mosaics in the castle.
I could have looked for hours!

Daddy's princess.

Such a fun day!
The last 4 times I have been to Disneyland, I have had a precious baby either in my belly or strapped to me in a carrier.  
I have loved it every time.
It sure was nice to spend the day relaxingly strolling and appreciating all the little details...without straining my back or my feet!

A night out for another amazing dinner at Maggiano's.

So hungry!

This was especially fun because of the group of chiropractors and CA's we were with!

Um, hello?
When did you grow up?!?!

All packed up and ready for the next leg of the journey!
{Mike was here too...he was usually doing something important while we were fooling around with the camera!}

Stay tuned for pics of the highlight of our trip, our visit to South America!
