Date nights come few and far between in this household. I can honestly say, that if we lived closer to my family, Jared and I would be very lucky and be able to have date nights all the time. However, we live 2 1/2 hours away.
When we were visiting my Dad in Florida, my mom was there for a few days. She practically threw Jared and me out of the condo two nights. She said to take advantage of her being there, and go have some fun. My Dad was completely out of it anyways....not to mention I think she wanted some one on one time with her grandson.
So, what did we do you ask? Well, we went to Disney World, of course! Our first night out we went to The Magic Kingdom, and a couple nights later, we visited Epcot.
We were so giddy on our monorail ride over to The Magic Kingdom.
I think the castle looks so pretty all lit up at night.
Because it was just the two of us, we were able to do just about everything we wanted to do! We also happened to be there during parade time, which we had no intentions of watching, so it wasn't as busy at the attractions we decided to hit up! We even got to ride Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin two times in a row!
Like I said, a couple of nights later we headed on over to Epcot.
This is probably my favorite out of the parks, and has been ever since I was a kid. We walked through the countries, and rode a few rides...and of course shopped! Jared and I got suckered into purchasing Lincoln one of these Disney pin trading sets. If you're not familiar [as I was not] with how the pin trading works, you can see for yourself here. It's basically a lanyard you purchase to attach pins to. BUT, you can also trade your pins with Disney cast members wearing lanyards. While we didn't actually do any of the trading bit, we did purchase Lincoln a few cutie pins to get him started :)
Anyways, Jared and I certainly enjoyed our time together. It was nice to be out for a little while just the two of us. So today, I am thankful for my Momma, for allowing us to get out for a couple of nights and be our carefree selves :)
