Vacation is Here!!

Our vacation FINALLY got here!! We decided a few months ago that we wanted to go Gainesville for the Florida/UAB game. You may remember, my cousin Nolen plays for UAB and last year we headed to Knoxville to see the Blazers take on the Vols. This year we really wanted to make the trip to watch them against the Florida Gators. Since that was the plan, we just pushed back our beach vacation to the week after our Gainesville trip.

We headed out early Thursday morning and got to Gainesville late in the afternoon. We rode around the UF campus and ate at Chipotle. I REALLY wish we would get one of those in Huntsville! It was YUMMY!

Friday we woke up and looked for some things to do. There's not a WHOLE lot in Gainesville to do - well, lots of nature trails...but anyway! :) If you know us, you know our all-time favorite place to go is Disney World. We haven't gone since 2009 and it's killing us! (We are going to try to make a trip in January or February) So, we decided to head to Downtown Disney! It's about 2 hours south of Gainesville and it was a pretty easy trip.

We can now say we went in 2011! (We have been to WDW every other year since we got married and we were due this year - this year has been kind of crazy so we didn't get to go)

Proof we were there! :)
We started off at Cookes of Dublin to split a fried Snickers bar!!! We LOVE these!
The Lego store has some new displays and are in the process of building more. I thought this one was cute!
Since it was a last minute trip, we didn't make reservations to eat anywhere. We had dinner at Rainforest Cafe.
And of course, I had to stop in at the candy store and pick up some of my favorites!
After Downtown Disney, we stopped off at the Premium Outlets in Orlando. I forgot to pack my tennis shoes and after a LONG day of walking at Downtown Disney, flip flops were just not going to cut it for another day of walking for the football game. Needless to say, I'm now the proud new owner of some new shoes! ha!

It was a FUN day and I'm really glad that Rob talked me into going to Downtown Disney! Of course, now we just REALLY want to go back! :)
