As children, we both took vacations during the summer and some of our fondest childhood memories were made on vacation. I have a very fond memory of visiting Washington D.C. when I was 9. It left a HUGE impression on me! My favorite memory while we were there was visiting the National Zoo. While visiting the zoo, my father convinced me he could speak with the animals. It was all fun and games until he gobbled at a turkey….who responded by gobbling back. Their “conversation” went on for about five minutes and was one of the funniest things I’ve EVER seen! I only wish we had it on video!
Rob’s favorite childhood vacation was going to Cooperstown and seeing the Corvette Museum and the Baseball Hall of Fame. He vividly remembers seeing all the plaques of the retired players and hearing his dad tell stories of watching and listening to games with those players. Rob loved (and still loves) baseball. He always wanted to play (or even just throw catch) at Doubleday Field, the beautiful old-fashioned field at Cooperstown. To him, there’s nothing better to do during the summer than see a game in person at the baseball field, so Cooperstown is definitely etched in his memory!
Even though we LOVED these vacations, our favorite vacation spot is definitely Disney World. We’ve both been to Disney World MANY times and we make it a point to visit for the anniversary years. Whether we’re riding favorite rides or seeing the new attractions, there’s no better place to be than Disney. No matter how old you are, you’re still a kid and the magic transcends time. I still cry every time I see the fireworks and Rob still bounces from vendor to vendor searching for the one missing pin for his collection. Here are our two favorite pictures from our last trip. Both were taken on our last day there: which also happened to be the first night of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween celebration:
