Here we are at the top of the hill, hump day, Day 3 of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. I would like to thank Meredith for nominating me. This is turning into a real challenge for me. 🙂 It’s exactly what I needed to help get me out of a slump. Be sure to check out Meredith’s blog, Meredith’s Musings when you get the chance.
In 2012, we decided to go to Disney World. We had thought the last time in 2006 would be our last until grandchildren came. The kids were 15, 13 and 10. We had been surprised that they wanted to go back at those ages. It came as quite a surprise when in 2012, at the ages of 22, 19 and 16 they were still game! To be honest, most people thought we were crazy.
There are certain attractions we must experience every time we visit Disney World, especially Magic Kingdom. This is non-negotiable. And as you can see from today’s picture, It’s a Small World, is one of those. Others include Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan. YES, all of my children even went on those rides last year at their advanced adult (23,21,18) ages. How did I get them to go on these rides? Here’s the funny part. The first time we were in Disney World, back in 2002, it was raining, pouring, and the nearest ride was Winnie the Pooh. I never told them they HAD to go on the ride. They just did. And on each subsequent trip- 2006, 2012, 2014- they just fell into line and went for the ride. I like to think that they secretly enjoy the rides and don’t want to admit it! Or maybe they are just really sweet kids and they do it for me. Either way, these rides are staples in our Disney experience and in 4 or 5 years when we go back again, they will remain on our short list.
The Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge rules require you to post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or simply a short paragraph – it’s entirely up to you.
Then each day, nominate another blogger to carry on this challenge.
Accepting the challenge is entirely optional. This challenge is all in fun.
I would like to nominate Joyroses from Nuggets of Gold to take part in the challenge and keep it going.
