Friday Five – Five Highlights from Our Babymoon

Wow, its feels like forever since I’ve connected with all of you!  Preston and I had a fabulous time in Florida on our babymoon, and got home late Wednesday night.  Not only did this trip mark our last vacation together as a family of two, but it also marks the end of summer for me, as I return to school on Monday to start preparing for the start of the new school year.

During our week in Florida we split our time between Disney World and St. Pete Beach.  Some of the highlights of our week included:

1.  Opening our gender envelope with Mickey and finding out that Baby Thayer is a boy!

2.  Watching Wishes at Magic Kingdom and Illuminations at Epcot – there’s just something so magical about both shows!

Two different versions of the "Aloha." Can you even tell which one was mine?

5.  Lots of rest and relaxation


We’re so fortunate that we were able to enjoy a week away together, our last vacation just the two of us before we become a family of three.  And yes, I kept up with my half marathon training during our week away.  I’ll recap the last two weeks of RnRVB training in Monday’s training post.

QOTD: What was a highlight of your last vacation?

As always, thank you to the DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) for hosting the weekly Friday Five Link Up.  Be sure to check out their posts as well!
