Magical Moments

Living near Disney World we’ve spent a good amount of time at “The most magical place on Earth.”  I like to look for magic in our ordinary lives.  I’d rather my hubby bring me a potted plant (no cut flowers for me) for no reason at all, instead of on Valentine’s day. 

The day Kyton was born is memorable, but it does not compare to a day spent with him now that his personality has blossomed.  Our wedding day was amazing, but I treasure our spur of the moment vacations together even more. 

One of our most magical moments was a spontaneous trip to the Florida Keys.  This was not our most anticipated or lavish vacation and that is what made it so magical. 

We had planned to camp over the weekend, but didn’t know where to go.  That morning, we woke up and decided on Key Largo.  We stayed at the same campground my parents stayed at when they were our age, and the same location we visited annually in high school.

We spent a good portion of the trip  in the water with two boat trips.

There is also many great off shore snorkeling beaches.

We even crossed the Seven mile bridge.

Since we were camping out of our car it was easy to get up, and get going. We had breakfast every morning at a different beach.

We watch the sky as the last glimmer of sun disappeared on the horizon.

The best part was being together

You didn't take too many pictures- a it is so good having lots of pictures of the two of you. Since having kids there is rarely a picture of just Eric and I together. It sounds like the perfect magic moment.

You can never take too many photos! Too few is always a problem. It looks and sounds like you all had a great time!

Love these pictures! There isn't such a thing as "too many" :). You two are adorable!
