Visit from Shane!

So about a week before Thanksgiving, my awesome brother Shane got to stop in Orlando for about 24 hours on his way to a conference in Atlanta. We definitely packed a lot of fun into a little amount of time!!

First, Brian and I challenged him to a round of miniature golf on the Fairways course at Fantasia Gardens. Let's just say...Shane beat us pretty bad :)
Then we literally RAN into Hollywood Studios super quick, so Shane could see the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights. They are BEAUTIFUL and one of my favorite things about the holidays at Walt Disney World. Check them out!After checking out the pretty lights, we headed over to Boma (An African buffet at the Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort) and PIGGED OUT! Brian and Shane kept a pretty even pace, sometimes even selecting the exact same items and soups at the same time!
Shane crashed at my place that night, and we stayed up super late talking. It was great to catch up with my bro! I really had missed him. The next morning, I got him up early (he was a trooper), and we headed back to Hollywood Studios!First time on Toy Story Midway Mania, and he did me proud!
After doing a TON at Hollywood Studios (Brian met up with us too!), we headed over to Animal Kingdom. We had an awesome lunch at Flame Tree Barbecue before we hit the main rides and shows. It was really the first time Shane had ever been to that park, and I think he really liked it.The boys are being brave before the Dinosaur ride. I can never keep my eyes open!Just for you, Mom!I had to take him to the airport later that night, but it was a perfect visit! I'm so glad Shane got to meet Brian, and I'm so glad Shane is my brother! :)

  1. How fun for you have Shane come and visit. It was fun to see a picture of him. It's been a long time. He looks the same just with less hair :)
