That's right, this year I celebrated my birthday with a week long trip to Disney World accompanined by 3 out of 4 of my siblings and all their kids!!!
"Wow!" you say, "They go on a lot of trips!"
"We live life to the fullest!" I say, "And with the maximum amount of student loans!"
Alright, so we actually didn't go to D-world just for my birthday. We ACTUALLY went for the D.S. Call Don't-Call-Me-A-Call-Girl Annual (Sometimes semi-annual or every-other-annual) Family Reunion!
And it just happened to coincide with my 30th birthday.
I believe the reasoning went something like this:
Older (Allegedly Wiser) Siblings: "It's the off-season! It won't be crowded at all!!!"
The reality was more like this:
Naysaying Sister: "It's the week of Mardi Gras and Carnival! All of Louisiana and Brazil are here this week!"
But despite the crowds, it was a great week, filled with sunshine, family, and FUN visiting the various Disney attractions.
And it really is a great place to celebrate a birthday. I got to wear a birthday button so all the employees wished me happy birthday all day long. I even got two free treats! (One Frozen Lemonade and one Mickey Supreme!)
And I'm actually happy to be 30. Don't get me wrong, I had a great 29th year, but there's nothing all that special about being in your late 20's. Thirty on the other hand...thirty is SOMETHING! (I'm not sure what yet, but I'll let you know.)
So that's the story of how my whole family flew to Orlando to celebrate the start of my fourth decade on earth. And why I've been MIA for awhile. And how to properly celebrate a significant birthday. And how to get free ice cream on a stick.
I think we've all learned something here today.
I know I have.
C-you real soon!
