Pomp and Circumstance

Well, Last week I was able to go home and hang with the fam. Home for me is in Lake Worth, FL, and oh what a glorious place it is! My parents live 15 minutes from a great beach and 20 min. from an AWESOME beach. Its usually sunny and warm. I really really really LOVE to visit my family the most though because I get to see them! I usually only get to see them for 5-7 days every year. Sometimes its hard not being able to see them very often, sometimes its not, but I'm always reminded of how much I truly did miss them once I get home to fl.

This particular visit was warrented due to the fact that my little baby brother was graduating from high school. It still blows my mind that he is of graduation age! Any way, so I get to fl the first day and my poor dad is trying to finish the yard. He just had a patio put in and the patio people had made a huge mess of the yard and had messed up the sprinkler system. So guess who got to clean up after the patio people...thats right his lovely children! ANyway, so the first day sucked like crazy (8 hours of manual labor is NOT my idea of a vaca). Next day, beach time! I finally got to go with my sister and her boyfriend and I totally toasted the back of my legs but still got not burned color elsewhere. Next day was the graduation. For a graduation class of 500+, an hour and a half graduation was suprisingly short and sweet. Some pics to capture the moment:

The smartest 18 year old I know (except for maybe the validictorian of his class...a 5.0 GPA??who knew??)

So we had a huge awesome party for my bro that night (by the way, its worth mentioning that after 8 hours of manual labor to pretty up the yard had been accomplished for said party, it rained and no one was able to go outside and enjoy the awesome patio and even more awesome yard) and the next day......DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Disney World is my absolute positively most favorite place on earth. I could go a gazillion times and never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever be tired of it!!!! I'm gettin all giddy just writing about it. It truly is the happiest place on earth and dreams really do come true there. Anyway,we went to Epcot and it was totally awesome. The weather was perfect! The crowd control was perfect!! it was just a great time!!! Even more fun was searching for "hidden Mickeys" which is my favorite thing to do at the parks. Here are some of the highlights, in pictures, of the fun:

hooray for mickey!! also check out my blue shirted sisters boob job!

I sure wish Gawain liked Disney world as much as I did so we could spend every vaca there. So I'm done boring you with my travels but here are a couple of pictures of my littlest sister and I at the beach:

Me about to get totally wiped out by a huge wave (it doesn't look that big but I went head over heels face first into the water)
