I thought I would re-cap our trip using the Goldilocks method. Here goes:
Too much– fun (in a good way), food, weight gain (5lbs), too many people on phones and not being in the moment with their families, money spent, sweets, Pirate Halloween costumes, people not paying attention when they’re walking, toddlers and older kids with pacifiers, overweight children, bagels bought at Panera, 24 bottles of water, and the amount I spent on a pair of sweatpants that I felt compelled to buy since my own pants got a bit snug towards the end of the week.
Not enough– time spent on vacation, no monorail rides, no train rides, no balloon rides, pictures taken, character visits, ice cream, no churros, popcorn, couples holding hands, patient families, mojitos, swimming, pool time, books read, imagination in our Halloween costumes (I would do better next year) baths taken in the jacuzzi tub, good TV channels (mostly Disney programming), and no wi-fi in the room.
Just right– holding hands, stolen kisses, relaxation, view from our Boardwalk villa, weather, morning walks around the lake, sitting on our bench, quiet dinners, park crowds, large bottle of Bailey’s, children’s laughter, performing artists on the Boardwalk, fireworks at the parks, crying children (usually they’re all crying at one time or another, but did not witness the usual amount), the walk down the Boardwalk hallway to our room, Easy-Spirit clog walking shoes, polite guests, magical cast members, Southwest “A” boarding passes, on-time flights and no turbulence.
