Final stop @ Animal Kingdom~Farewell Disney:Until Next Time

The worst day of a Disney vacation has arrived....the day we leave!  Luckily, our flight was early evening so we had plenty of time to enjoy 1 more park before driving back to Savannah.

We decided on Animal Kingdom since this is baby girl's favorite park and we missed out on the Safari the last day we were here.

We rode the safari, rode Dinasour again.....this was like the 3rd or 4th time....LOL!!































































After we got our fill of rides, we still had time to kill so we stopped at Downtown Disney....oh, no wait - its Disney Springs!

We walked for a bit, checked out some more stores and then it was finally time to go :(


We definitely have to do this on our next trip.....looks like fun






She really wanted her Rapunzel make over....on the list for next year!


Really love all of this StarWars merchandise




oh and here is Stitch, spitting at all who walk by.  Baby girl really enjoyed seeing him, LOL




Four hours later we were back at Savannah Airport, we turned in the rental car and made our way to the gate.  By the way, did I mention how great this airport is? I loved it!  Its not huge, but everyone is so nice and the place had great food options.  We ate lunch and waited for our flight.  



Our time finally arrived and we boarded our plane.  The flight was great....no issues and we were back in NY in record time!  



We got picked up by the place where we parked our car, and about an hour later we were on our way home!

It was a great trip, one that we will never forget.  One that also got us hooked on running and wanting to return for more Disney races!!!   I'm thinking.....Wine & Dine 1/2 marathon 2016!!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
