Cruising With Disney

Since I last posted, Hubby has retired and to celebrate we went on a 4 Night Disney Cruise.  We just got back from glorious warm weather and sunshine, and now we are back in cold weather....reality!



Yes, we have been humming Disney songs since we got back and that's okay, it's okay to be a kid at heart.  Everyday we saw Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Chip and Dale, and a host of other loved characters throughout the week.  You just couldn't help but walk around with a smile on your face.


This was pirate night, Pirate Mickey entered down a zip line from one of the ships funnels.


Did I mention the heat and sunshine?  The first afternoon on the ship, while we were still in port, we would text the kids with photos of heat and sun in some form, it was a bit of bragging I suppose!


Of course there were other reasons to smile, no cooking, cleaning or grocery shopping, an ice cream machine at your disposal whenever you wanted!!!  And Mickey waffles for breakfast!


And the beaches brought smiles......



What a way to start retirement!

Exciting Week 3

I am a little excited to tell you about the activity I have seen on Flickr the last few days.  A couple of my photos have generated a lot of viewing activity.  On Flickr I submit my photos to several Flickr groups.  I have had a couple of photos invited to be submitted to groups that I do not belong to,  so those photos get exposed to a whole new group of people.  It has been a fun surprise to watch the activity.  

This was my submission to Ellenburgh Photography Project 52 for the theme Winter.  I was invited to add it to a few new groups and it has received 13,000+ views.  This was exciting.
I was in Idaho this week, so the first 4 were taken in Boise.




Back in Colorado for the rest of these.  I got to have a play date with this little one.  You could go swimming in those eyes!!



A little while at the playground with these two!  They shared day 20 this week.  How could I choose just one!


Thanks for letting me share my photo excitement!
