For the holiday weekend, Mike and I took an impromptu trip to the Tampa Bay area to be with family. My uncle passed away last Thursday after a short battle with an extremely fast-moving form of cancer. Both of my cousins from New England came down to be with my aunt, so Mike and I decided to hop in the car to spend the weekend with family. I'm so glad we did. My aunt and uncle's house is right on a channel near St. Pete Beach, so we spent tons of time just sitting and talking on their porch, fishing off the dock, and, of course, playing and swimming with the kids.
Then, on the way back, in the words of my husband, "if we're this close to Disney, we might as well at least stop by and say hi!" You know I'm not going to object to that. Fourth of July is one of the absolute busiest days of the year in the parks because of the amazing fireworks at night, but luckily, Disney Springs was not crowded at all. We walked around, listened to some live music, and shared an amazing Ghiradelli sundae.
