When we left the beach. We headed to Disney's Ft. Wilderness. But before we could go there, Chris had to get to FL. So, he jumped on a train in Columbia and headed south :)
Once he got off the train in Lakeland, we headed to Gran and Pop's for lunch and then off to Orlando to check in at the happiest place on earth :)
The kids were much happier once there were golf carts to play on!
Gran, and the moms decided that our campsite needed to be cleaned up and put the kids to work picking up pine cones :) Some of them were really into it!
Others, not so much......
Once the pine cones were cleared we could put a rug out for the littles to roll around on!
and Cadence and Kagan kept on cleaning up.....
The next day we got in some quality pool time.
Our shrimp boil for dinner was delicious! To everyone except Christa ;) and if you have that many people to feed, you should definitely figure out a way to cook it all in one pot! Much less clean up that way.
The flies really enjoyed it too. They were really disgusting but definitely picture worthy!
and what would camping at Ft. Wilderness be without going to the sing along/movie time! We took up alot of space because there is alot of us. and we only lost one kid! That's not so bad when you're talking about10 kids 9 of them 5 and under :)
Pictures with Chip and Dale
Tink figured out the Disney secret when she stuck her hand up in their neck :) It was hilarious and definitely startled that poor chipmunk!
Yellow Gigi knew that we all needed a S'more so she manned the s'more making station. All those years of being a girl scout leader have really paid off now that she has grandchildren :)
and for the record, Caleb loves marshmallows. This is more than a little surprising to us considering they're squishy. But they're also full of sugar and calories so we don't mind that he likes them!
We are so glad for our family time at Ft. Wilderness. It was loads of fun. Even with the rain (that got no picture time), and the flooded tents, and the car acccident, and the car that will be replaced because you can never get that kind of funk smell out. We still had a great time. I mean, how could you not at the happiest place on earth?!?!
