On the second day of our family vacation, it rained like crazy in the afternoon. You will think that will stop us, but what did we do instead? In good Kropf spirit we braved the rain and cold. Yes, it was cold in Florida( mostly early in the morning and at night) But he who dares gets rewarded because it was awesome! Wait, not the rain, but what we got in spite of it. Since there were few people there, we got into our target rides very quickly. We had dinner at Belle's Castle with no reservation and got to see the fireworks without the crowd.
The next day, we headed to Animal Kingdom. The highlights were the Lion King show, African music, the safari and my private culinary awakening to Curry chicken ( I had an awesome dish there!)
The kids had the opportunity to meet more Disney characters and get autographs. Dominika was over the moon and back to meet Mickey and Minnie Mouse, they are actually the littles favorite characters. Every time she saw Minnie she pointed at them and would say something that sounded like: Mean, mean. She was so proud of herself for knowing who they were.
The Crystal palace was one of my favorite places to go because it reminded me of that time, almost 10 years or so ago, when we went there for our honeymoon. It reminded me of a silly couple, who were unsure if they could keep a plant alive or let alone a dog. Cheers to a decade of love, of growth, growing pains, joy, silliness and His love. I'm thankful for His love.
