We began our journey on this Turbofan jet from Manchester, N.H., to JFK, NYC.
Obviously, the kids hated flying.
It's not often that one sees a two-headed turtle. This one was at the Homosassa Springs state park visitor center. I also have a photograph of this one's x-ray.
Our shy daughter.
Phil Luchon bought this dress for Naomi.
All the kids, NaNi especially, loved their "new" grandpa George.
Okay, part of the instant appeal was his motorized lifting chair ...
See NaNi's mischievous grin? She's about to throw a dirtball.
This giant manatee was located at the hotel we stayed in for the first weekend.
The manatee is named Bubbles, as the result of some naming contest. Go figure.
I love David's Disney sunglasses.
Naomi hates posing for pictures.
We got to ride in the driver's cab of the monorail! (Neener! Neener! Neener!)
Smile number 131,299.
Our first view of the iconic Cinderella's castle, as we took the ferry boat from the transportation center to the Magic Kingdom.

The Electric Parade has been renamed SpectroMagic.
David poses next to the maintenance closet - or, rather, Mike Wazowski's dressing room. That's Wazowski with one "I." This was in an amusing, interactive comedy presentation called The Laugh Floor.
It never took the kids long to fall asleep at the end of the day.
My two favorite babes.
Nile Crocodiles, at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
This giraffe followed our Safari vehicle down the road.
Naomi was very excited that she was able to spot many of the birds on the guide.
