On the Bright Side

Another layout with the wonderful new My Mind's Eye to share with you.  This is my mother and father in law in front of the statuesque landmark of a tree in the center of Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney world.  I couldn't tell you the last photo we have with the two of them together.  Even this one had to be begged and pleaded for. It was such a wonderful opportunity we had to discover the wonder of Disney World with them there with us.  They aren't much for any of the rides, but that did work out well for the rest of us roller coaster junkies, as there was always someone available to hold the bags. I thought they were nuts to want to travel all that way, and spend all that money on park admissions only to sit there.  What I came to realize, however, was that they weren't just sitting there.  To them, this was an opportunity to spend some quality time with their grandkids (and kids).  To see them discover the wonder of Disney, and to take in the sights and sounds of Florida, a much different landscape than their usual day to day view.  It was just as much a holiday for them as it was for us.  For them, there were just a few less terrifying, breath taking moments, having skipped each and every roller coaster.  We all hope we get  to experience something similar together soon.  Perhaps even my sister-in-law and her family will join us the next time around.
