Hi dlkiv, here is an excerpt from my blog about our trip to Florida this summer:
The biggest thing of note for me this past summer was that my wife and I took two weeks off and took the kids to Disney in Florida. Amusement parks are not usually my thing, but I had a blast and so did everyone else. We drove, which from where I live in southwestern Quebec is 23 hours non-stop, which took us two days but it went really well. When I told the border guard as we entered New York that we were driving to Florida, and he saw our kids in the van, he got a smile on his face that said "Good luck buddy, better you than me!" But very smooth and saw some awesome vistas and met a bunch of nice people. The weather was fantastic; I have no problem with snow and cold but my Spanish blood felt right at home with the mid to high 30s and high humidity. After a week at Disney we drove to Clearwater on the west coast and spent a few days at the beach there before heading back home. BTW our family favourite ride at Disney was Star Tours.
Aside from having lots of fun it really brought us closer together as a family.
