Walt Disney World

I Two days at the Magic Kingdom was plenty of time to wear Wade and Daddy out. For the most part it was a great trip and I loved just watching his face on each new ride or character greeting  

What I didn't anticipate was that he wouldn't sleep. It was about 11pm each night before he went to sleep in the camper. And during the day he is used to a two hour nap, but come on when you are at Disney there was too many sights and sounds to stay asleep for long. 
The park was decorated for Halloween and the campground was full of very expensive rv's outfited with all kinds of inflatables and lights. 

Honestly Wade would have had fun just staying at the campground and swimming and dancing with Chip and Dale at night. 

We did all the first time prerequisites...
Riding Dumbo
Meeting Characters
Driving on the speedway
Riding the carousel 

And of course parades, snacks and the castle!!

I am glad we went but next up will be a Disney cruise...where Mommy and Daddy can return feeling like we actually had a vacation !!!

Watch out Fish

My grandfather had this pond built when I was in jr high and we have had a lot of good times fishing here. I always regretted that as he got feeble there was no way to really fish from the banks. Dad now owns half the dam and one side of the pond so we starting talking about putting a dock up a few years ago. So now not only Wade can fish from here (before I am comfortable him being in the boat, there are alligators down here you know) but he and Teen have a place to enjoy the pond without trailering the boat and dragging it into the water. 

The new dock is almost done, it will have a covered boat slip and plenty of space to fish. 

I don't think the fish have much to fear yet from Wade yet as he is too loud and impatient to make much of a fisherman. But I know that many memories will be made from here with this generation and hopefully the next!

Camper Quilt Done!

When Holly started this past year's $5 quilt block of the month, she encouraged us to add our own fabric. I decided to make a quilt to keep in the camper. So each month I added fireflies, camp signs, owls and lots of other fun things. 

Got it back from the quilter and bound just in time for the Disney campground. 
Holly even showed is this super easy way to set these blocks. I have never set a quilt so fast. The green is a shot cotton and I love the feel of it. The backing is a fabric that names major national parks...just perfect. 

The next $5 quilt class starts this month. I think I have participated every year and can't wait to see what they have in store!

I may need to pull out an extra quilt tonight. A cold front is blowing in and we are suppose to get down to 40. That's ok, I love Fall. And it won't be long that Santa will want some ideas. Well Wade about had a baby heart attack when he saw this Cars playset at Costco. It's like the wooden train sets but all the Radiator Spring characters instead. If Santa decides to bring it I guess it can double as a coffee table. 
And because there are a few folks that read my blog but not facebook I will end this with my dapper young man as he headed to church last week in the Studebaker.
