Home again

Hello friends! We came home last night after spending a wonderful vacation in Orlando, Florida. Most of our week was spent relaxing in the warm sun but we did venture out a couple of days to amusement parks. Disney's Magic Kingdom was our first stop. Here is a pic of the cute Mickey topiary that beckoned us in.

Next we were greeted by Belles in pretty dresses.

There were about a dozen or more girls in matching dresses in assorted pastel colors. Even in the early morning the temperature was high and I'm sure they were quite warm in all that polyester lovliness but they certainly didn't let on. They stood in the hot sun for picture after picture.

A few days later we went to Sea World. We watched Shamu the killer whale show which was great fun.

The manatees are loved by Floridians and while they are not on anyone's beauty list, they are quite endearing.

This morning I went to the post office to pick up our mail that they had been holding for us while we were gone. I was so happy to see an envelope from Australia in amongst the bills and ads! It was the giveaway I won from Lurline. She gave away gifts to celebrate her birthday and blogaversary. Look at this beautiful package. A lovely note was attached.

Inside was her fabulous bag filled with all kinds of goodies! Ladies, this little bag looks great on the computer screen but it is so much nicer in person! Just dripping with cuteness!

Wonderful thread, a cute notepad and a cherry ripe bar which I had to fight my family for! I ended up sharing with my hubby and daughter and believe me--it was totally yummy! The inside of the bag is too cute too! Take a look!

Thank you so much Lurline! Hugs across the water!

Well, I've got unpacking to do so will end here. Ahhh, it's good to get away but it's also good to get home.

Talk at you later, Rumi
