Mosaic Monday # 49 - Postcards from Florida

It's been great spending time with my sister, brother in law, their two sons and the eldest ones girlfriend who we met for the first time this week.
Our days have been filled with theme park visits, shopping and dining out, plus time spent relaxing by our pool.


Our favourite park has to be Disney's Animal Kingdom, of course it has roller coasters and rides that get you very wet but what the SP and I enjoyed the most was seeing "wild" animals in natural settings. On the Kilamanjaro Safari we saw lions, giraffes and elephants "oh my"!





On Saturday BIL celebrated his birthday by doing a 5km park run. He enters several UK marathons during the year and needs to keep fit even on his birthday whilst on vacation.

The Senior Partner went along with him as driver and chief supporter, it was good for them to spend time together something that only happens every couple of years usually.
In the evening we all celebrated together with dinner at the Boathouse restaurant in Disney Springs.

  5. Maggie, it's been fun following along with your FB posts. I've never been to Disney Land or Disney World. How special to have this time with Kate and family. Hugs to all!

  6. Nice to know you having a good time with your relatives and nice meals. Celebrating one’s own birthday by running a marathon sounds so “cool” (though running must be so hot and sweltering.) Animal Kingdom looks tempting, I’d like to visit someday with my grandchildren.

  11. The wild animals are amazing! Disney is such a huge park with so much to do and see. I hope you don't get caught in any of the pop up showers we have at this time of year. Sounds like you're having fun! And your BIL is brave to run in a race when it's so hot. Happy Birthday to him! Enjoy your week. Hugs, Diane

    1. Maggie - for several weeks, the MM button is no longer the pretty mosaic that it used to be. It now says something about 3rd party hosting. Do you know how to get it back to the pretty mosaic?
