Ellie's Last Hoorah: from one castle to another

Hey everybody,

As you know, Elizabeth started kindergarten this week.  What you don't know is that we ran off to Florida two weeks ago for her last hoorah before becoming a scholastic (oh, and we participated in a wedding - more on that soon).

If you've followed this blog for a long time, you likely know that El looooooves Harry Potter.  Harry Potter was her first crush.  When we heard that they were opening up the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, we knew we had to go.

We drank butterbeer (okay, so I had the Hog's Head Brew), toured Hogwarts castle, and rode the perfect El-sized roller coaster (that still made daddy's insides flop), Flight of the Hippogriff.  10 times.

We also ran over to the Magic Kingdom one night.  El dressed as her favorite princess, Belle, for the wedding, and we didn't want to change before we entered the park.  She even had to give HER autograph to a girl working in one of the stores - it was sweet.

I can't think of a better way to say goodbye to your freedom than this trip.  Here we are in front of both castles.

Talk to you soon,
