Disney cruise!

We are back from Florida! We had a great time on our Disney vacation. Never in our lives have we ever considered doing anything Disney, but somehow in the last 3 months or so, a set of circumstances coalesced into a perfect storm and we found ourselves in a fantasy world for about 5 days this Thanksgiving week! For the first 3 days, we were on the Disney Wonder which set sail for island owned by the Disney corporation in the Bahamas called the Castaway Cay.

Edda was a touch feverish on the day the cruise was suppose to leave. We were not optimistic about traveling with a sick child in a confined space. But she recovered rapidly, and after a good night's sleep on the boat, she was fine.
