Magic Meyer trip

In celebration of a whole lot of things–Dad’s retirement, his military career, Mom’s retirement, the panache with which she was a military spouse, and much more–Dad and Mom gave us the Magic Kingdom treatment.

A far cry from the family vacations of our youth which involved the culinary delights of Banquet fried chicken, soy-bean pancakes, Tang, Spam, and other unmentionables and were conducted from the comfort of a pop-up trailer that Dad had tricked out in every possible way but his attempts to make it a) comfortable and b) waterproof were always thwarted; this trip involved a heated pool, comfy hotel rooms, and eating out. The best part, of course, was being together and watching the cousins have a blast.

  1. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh!
    I really want to hear all about the trip. I have been missing you guys. The pictures are fantastic. There is a tie for my favorite one between you and your sis looking all happy and Mark’s Mickey hands.

  2. Oh my – it looks like you all had a wonderful time. Of course, one of my favorites is the Mickey Mouse hands.

    A week at Disney – priceless!

  3. whooaaaa, “Marky Mouse” is quite the rockstar!
    looks like you guys had a great time.

    PS. five more weeks until the end of my semester. you and mark should probably plan a romantic date (i.e. target shopping trip) sometime around then–me and zoe need to hang out.

  4. Ok – in the picture of Chris and Henry, there is a small glimmer by Chris’s ear – which I briefly mistook for a diamond stud earring. My heart can’t handle that kind of shock.
    The Mickey mouse hands are pretty great – but they seem eerily similar to the hamburger helper hand…
