Florida Trip Wrap-Up

It was a quick 4 day trip but Hannah and I would do this again in a heartbeat! 

These flights were her last as a lap child which makes me a little sad.  P1150487 For years and years, even long before I began Hannah’s adoption, I longed to be the Mommy on the plane holding her little one close as the plane took off and landed.  We have been blessed to do a lot of travelling together over the past 14 months and that’s not going to change but I will miss holding Hannah during take off and landing.  What I won’t miss is trying to keep my energizer bunny’s feet from kicking the seat in front of us.  Beginning with our next trip Hannah will be secured in her car seat when we board the plane.  I have a feeling it might be a little easier for both of us as she’s used to being in her car seat and is very happy there.   During our flight to FL Hannah hopped across the aisle for a little visit with her friend Ben.P1150490

When we first arrived in FL Hannah fell asleep in the car so Mommy decided it was time to finally go someplace I’ve wanted to for a very long time and it was yummy!!   Emily, I made it!!P1150491

Hannah enjoying lunch in the travel high chair.  This little chair has been great to have and use in a pinch.  Normally the challenge is that it doesn’t put her at a good height for the table but there was a booster seat at the house we rented which put her at the perfect height.DSC_6523

A sucker featuring her Mickey Mouse Clubhouse friends that was almost as big as Hannah!  DSC_6543

Enjoying a private boat ride at DD.  With the weather being less than ideal, boat rides were not something most people were looking to do but Hannah and I had fun tooting around the lake with the big boat all to ourselves!DSC_6615

Awe!  Kisses for MollyDSC_0022

Hannah’s buddy Ben!  She sure has missed him since we returned home.  She talks about him daily.DSC_0042

Sadly Tuesday around noon it was time for us to say good-bye to our friends and head to the airport.  Little did we know at the time that our flight would be delayed approx 4 hours but we made the best of our time anyway by hanging out with some Disney friends at the airport.

Enjoying eating and wearing ice cream in the airport


Some may think it’s a Goofy idea to travel all that way for 4 days and you know what? We agree….and we wouldn’t have it any other way!!P1180496

I wonder where we’ll end up next??


  1. It is your life, you lead it as you wish and make no apologies. I love your spirit and zest for travel!!!

    Keep smilin!

  2. I love your adventures!! :) That picture of Hannah kissing Molly is precious! I hope you make it our way soon! :) Just sayin'! Hugs and lots of love to you two girls.

  3. I would have done it too. Anyone who would want to miss out on some fun time with friends would be crazy.

  4. You rock Catherine! You are building amazing memories with your sweet Hannah. she will treasure every moment I'm sure! Those getaways with great friends are precious and I'm glad you had a good time. Can't wait to hear about your next adventure. I have a feeling you have something up your sleeve!!!!


  5. Great memories for hannah and you. Where di you fly out of? If Orlando, where in the airport were those statues?
    Glad you all made it back safely.

  6. All the pictures are great, but I really love the ice cream one. She is such a full speed ahead/live every moment to the fullest type of girl!


  7. Hi Kathy,

    We were in the Orlando airport in Terminal A.

    The statues are around the outside of the Disney Store. Goofy and Snow White on the sides and the big Mickey one stretches across the front of the store. Hope this helps.

    These could be more places where we take pics each trip. :o)

  8. I think you should end up in Calgary :).

    Glad you all had such a good time.
