Here are some highlights of our recent trip to Disney World--in no particular order. This is the 3rd trip that we have made to Disney with our friends Lynn and Kelly and their family. This year Esther and Greg and their family joined us for 6 days of fun, and Heather came along for 4 of those days. We made many fun memories!
Esther, Heather, Jimmy, Me, and Lynn in front of where the Race Expo was held. This is where we picked up our bib numbers, race shirts, and various souvenirs.

Lynn and I are making buttons for our kids to wear. They said "Go Mama!" and "Go Daddy". I took a picture of the button maker too. I really want one of those!
