So the last month or so has flown by. We had a mammoth road trip to Florida for Christmas: 3500 miles, 5 states and Disneyworld :) We had an absolutely wonderful time - packed 3 parks (Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios) into 3 1/2 days and also managed a trip to the Kennedy Space Center.

I could talk forever about the trip but I won't. Suffice to say - I want to go back. There's so much we didn't get to see, and that's without adding Epcot and Universal Studios into the mix!
The trip home was pretty uneventful - we stopped in New Orleans but didn't do as much as we'd liked as Chris had an awful cold so Luke and I did some sightseeing but not much else. We plan on going back at some point!
And then we got back into Texas, and stopped to see this:
|Beaumont, Tx. It used to be the worlds largest fire hydrant....|
We are heading to the wilds of West Texas on the 14th Jan - for Chris's birthday we are off to the McDonald Observatory for a Saturday night star party. This is how isolated it is:
Who knows what we'll see on this trip!
