My family, my dad, and my best friend headed to Florida in early January.
We decided on this, because Jody and I were going to complete our first marathon, The 20th Anniversary Disney World Marathon. Unfortunately, I experienced plantar fasciitis, which sidelined me from training for 13 weeks, which ended my training. I wish that I would have spoken to a podiatrist before I had already paid for the entry fee. One of these days I'm going to go back and complete the marathon, or maybe event the Goofy Challenge (half marathon on Saturday, full marathon on Sunday).
We flew out on the 5th, but the marathon wasn't until the 13th, so we stayed in Bonita Springs, where my family has a condo and stayed there from Saturday until Wednesday. Here are some highlight photos.
We went to the pool, out to dinner and they boys went to a nature preserve and saw a crocodile. We even went to the Golf of Mexico. The water was freezing, but Sam didn't care.
On Wednesday, we headed up to Orlando and stayed in a house that I rented. Amazing and reasonably priced!
Thursday was Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. I'm not sure if Sam even blinked once while we were there.
Friday we decided that we would have the most fun at Disney's Animal Kingdom. He got to meet his favorite characters.
What a great place. Not a crazy as Magic Kingdom, but definitely pretty cool. We were able to relax more.
