Magic Kingdom Once Again

Well we headed for Magic Kingdom on the Monorail.

The girls loved riding the train.  It was really nice having the whole couch to ourselves.

We got into the park in time for the opening show.  I think the characters are the girls favorite thing.

Universal Studios

Heather had planned our trip so well but this was something she didn’t plan.  She didn’t know that her big brother, Jared, had connections to Universal Studios.  She had always wanted to go to see Harry Potter land.  Jared has an older gentleman that lives with him who is the father of his best friend, Justin.  Justin’s Mom, Karen, is a witch at the Squeaky Cauldron and she got us free tickets.  Justin is also one of my adopted sons, so I really wanted to meet Karen.

We were supposed to just hang out at the hotel by the pool for the day while Dan went to car museum he had been wanting to visit.  He dropped the rest of us off at Universal Studios where we met up with Karen.

Karen didn’t get to stay with us long because she had things to do and has a hard time wearing the mask.  To say the least she hasn’t been able to work because of this.  It was really nice to get to spend a little time with her.  Her family think so highly of my oldest son, Jared, which makes me very proud.

The Magic is Back

Heather planned our first day at Epcot.  We took the monorail to the Grand Floridian Resort.  Before you could get on the monorail you had your temperature checked.  Due to covid-19 we got a car to ourselves.  We could roll the stroller straight on without taking the girls out.

Also, you have to make reservations for the parks because they are limiting the people they allow in.  You must wear a mask at all times except when you are seated and eating or drinking.  You can’t walk around with food.  Reservations have to be made for restaurants too.  This is one of the ways Disney is trying to keep everyone safe.

We had reservations for the Grand Floridian Cafe.  The breakfast was so good.  We really enjoyed it.  The magic has started.

Last Leg to Mickey’s House

Kate was very excited about going to Mickey’s house.  Beka would always say Minnie’s house.

We left around 9:30 taking back roads to our next camping spot.

We stopped for lunch at 11:25 at Nelson County Visitor Center in Virginia.

Rocky Ridge County Park

We decided to go hike one of the many trails at Rocky Ridge County Park not far from where our kids live.  This was the girls’ first hike. Daddy brought their wagon for if they got tired.

Yellow Phase Backyard Party

We had our first backyard party in our new house due to Covid-19. It was not a big party. Our daughter, her husband and their twin daughters and our friends we met in our neighborhood, which consist of Christina and her 8 year old daughter, Maria.

It was a beautiful day in York, Pennsylvania. We spent the day in the backyard watching the girls play.

Maria has been giving the girls toys she has outgrown like the little tyke car and trailer.

Princess of York

Once upon a time there was a little girl, Maria, who was the Princess of York. She lived a quiet life on a quiet street with her Mother the Queen. Then one day as she looked out the window she saw a big, white animal walking down the sidewalk in front of her castle.

Maria tells the Queen, Christina, that there is a polar bear walking down the sidewalk. Her mother informs her that there are no polar bears in York. We live to far south for them to be here.

Walking the Neighborhood

We have been walking, when weather permits, around our neighborhood. I have noticed a lot of people all day doing the same thing. I wonder if there will be as much walking when this is all over. We decided to make our walk a photo shoot.

Crewdsons and CoronaVirus

Well I imagine that all of us our doing things differently in our life because we are trying to do what we can do to stop the spread of Covid19. We are doing what we can to entertain ourselves here in our home.

We have taken Harrison to the vet. They want everyone safe, so you sit outside while they examine your pet. Talk to you on the phone to let you know what it going on with your pet. When we left we thought we were done. Then we get a call to tell us that Harrison has hookworms too. David had to go and pick up his meds. When he arrived he had to call to let them know he was there. He gave him his card info and then they brought out his medication.

I had a doctor appointment this week with my new doctor. I had been waiting for almost 2 months to get in. I was figuring they would cancel it but they didn’t. We arrived at the doctor’s office. There was a gentleman outside that by using social distancing asked me several questions and told us the David couldn’t come in with me. I was handed a mask because we had been in Seattle for a month, returning on March 9th. Was allowed into the empty waiting room. I was escorted back within a minute or two. There in my room things seemed like just a normal office visit. After the nurse talked to me and the doctor had gone through my records I had brought in earlier we discussed my plan.
