I have three layouts to showcase for you today!  We were fortunate enough to make our 2016 family vacation to Walt Disney World in Florida over Spring Break, and we had a blast!


Most people don't realize that you can celebrate your birthday at Walt Disney World at any point six months on either side of your birthday.  My birthday is in March, my husband's is on Christmas Eve, our oldest son's is in September, and our youngest son's is in January, so we decided that we would ALL celebrate our birthdays on the morning we went to Chef Mickey's for breakfast!  My husband was the only one of us who'd ever been to Chef Mickey's, so it was a neat experience for all of us!


EPCOT was showcasing the Flower and Garden Festival when we were there.  It was so neat to see lots of Disney characters represented in topiaries!  This is one of my favorite family photos of the day, so I just had to add it to a layout.


This was our youngest son's first trip to Walt Disney World, so he was SUPER excited when he FINALLY got to meet Mickey Mouse!  I think some of the favorite things for him were meeting the characters and getting them to sign his autograph book and our photo mat (which now surrounds one of our favorite photos from Disney and is hanging in our living room!)!

Up next is the fabulous Christi!

Here's our lineup in case you get lost:

Ashley--YOU ARE HERE!
Christy--GO HERE NEXT!

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!
