So as promised, here’s our 2016 Disney World trip, as seen in some of my favorite pictures.
(Merida was my favorite. Her accent, her mischievous character, her attempt to give her three little brothers to our family to even out our family of girls… And even down to her genuine investment in our little ladies. She was great!)
It was hot, but it was wonderful and I’m thankful we were able to spend the time with Matt’s parents and cousin, Brittani.
Oh the fun can’t possibly be summarized, even in spite of the oppressive heat.
But I must tell you, one story of sacrificial love. Rodger, who would never even mention it, carried around these little ladies, giving each a shoulder ride in the dead humidity without a single complaint. And while he would never say a word about it, I saw his heart so beautifully in the way he loved everyone on the trip, giving so selflessly. He would so humbly dismiss it, but I just wanted to share my appreciation for his dear heart. His knees were tiresome, even causing him to limp away quietly, but his heart and his arms were so incredibly big throughout the whole trip. He was so focused on making sure everyone had a good time. Friends, he’s just such a sweet grandpa. So thank you, Rodger, even if you’d immediately humbly come up with examples of everyone else’s good values. I still saw your dear heart of service to us all and I thank you.
It was a wonderful trip full of sweet little moments investing in our little ladies, fun rides (even some fast ones with “just the adults”), and pounds and pounds of sweat. 😉
Yay for our first family Disney trip, now onward to Africa!
