A Christmas Roadtrip



This past weekend my family and I road-tripped it to Orlando for what has become our new holiday tradition - a mini getaway to celebrate the Christmas season at Disney World! It started the Christmas right before the Hubs and I were married and it has happened every year since. Coincidentally my brother and his wife happen to live in Orlando so it works perfectly, especially on the years they are unable to drive south and spend Christmas with us.

I brought my camera along for the trip but didn't pull it out once, so here are some photos from the trip courtesy of my trusty iPhone. Enjoy!


We stayed at the Wyndham Grand Orlando Bonnet Creek resort which had only been open for two months prior to our stay. I would definitely recommend it if you visit the Orlando area. This hotel was a-maz-ing! Check out some of the decor...







Some shots from Downtown Disney -




The next two shots feature displays made entirely of LEGOS!



 Dressed up for dinner -







And the randoms -

This display is made entirely of chocolate! It smelled heavenly :)

That's all folks! Sad thing is that I just realized how few pics I took of people, haha!
Oh well, better luck on family photos this weekend ;)
