Anniversary, and Disney World

We enjoyed our three-day trip to Disney World!

The cold weather front here in Florida wasn't so bad, but we did keep our coats on most of the time! (Joe is trying to hide my purse he is carrying!)

I have lived in Florida 43 years and was here went Disney World was built! I remember when the tickets were about $7.00 each, now they are over $70!

Minnie Mouse says hello to all of you!

Mickey went for a ride on Big Joe's shoulders!

We had so much fun we decided to buy season tickets for the year. We are hoping the grandbabies (age 2) will come down and go with us. We used to have season tickets, but it has been almost ten years since we have been to Disney World. We live further away from DW now, almost 2 hours away (with traffic,) we used to live only an hour away when we lived further south and worked at NASA, Kennedy Space Center.

Our 12th Anniversary - January 17th

We also celebrated our 12th anniversary while in Orlando. We went to the restaurant we dined at on our first date! This is Bergamo's, an Italian restaurant with singing servers! The servers (about fifteen of them) take turns singing broadway, opera, and Italian songs. They are very talented, ranging in age from 20 - 35. The young lady below sang opera.

The young man below was a great tenor, he had several requests.
We had heard that the restaurant closed because they tore down the mall it was in, so we were delighted to see they had relocated. We enjoyed the anniversary celebration very much! We also look forward to returning to Disney World in the Spring, we are planning to go to the Spring Festival at Epcot in March.

Blessings to you in 2009!!

Hey Katherine; Happy Anniversary, how great that you could spend it at the same restaurant. What a special night, love the singing waiters. Any Man that will hold his wifes purse is a keeper..... What a great couple you two make.

Hi Katherine,

I was so pleased to have you make a visit to my blog tonight. I have never been to Disney World. I think I would enjoy it, but hubby probably could not do all the walking we would have to do.

Good pictures of you and Joe. Happy 12th Anniversary.

Happy anniversary, Katherine! I totally LOVE Disney World. We have gone almost every year since the first year it opened. I know what you mean about the prices - wow! It looks like you had a wonderful time - I love the picture of your husband hiding your purse behind him. Too cute!

Happy Anniversary, Katherine. Yes, you and I almost have the same anniversary dates. Since mine is on the 15th and yours is on the 17th we should meet in the middle somewhere between Oregon and Florida on the 16th to celebrate together! Great idea - wouldn't it be fun? ~Adrienne~

Happy, Happy Anniversary! You didn't tell me that was part of your trip. Looks like you two had a great time!
Our kids have season tickets and love it in CA.
Caden will have a ball.
