Vacation Preparedness

I don't leave for 2 days, 23 hours, 58 minutes and 10 seconds, but I just have to say I am getting really excited. I've been planning my menu. Confirming airlines. Looking at forums to obsess gather as much information as possible. And of course, it gives me time to reflect on our last trip to the Food & Wine Festival in 2008 when our dear friends, Ben & Renee, joined us on the trip. Renee had never been to WDW so we tried to hit as much as possible throughout the weekend.

The Festival Center of the F&W Festival. A lot of fun shopping.
A lot of great events. 
Renee & Ben at the festival with their Mardi Gras beads and
recent beverage purchase.

To me, this sign said a lot. CELEBRATE THE JOY OF LIFE!

My dear husband - double fisting it!
And everyone thinks he's such a nice, sweet guy.

Green Army Men at Hollywood Studios.
Yep, they whistled at Renee & I. We still got it!

Jeff & Renee relaxing by the lagoon.

Dinner at Narcoosee's to watch the fireworks. Renee
took this great picture of us! Love it!
We tried many, many glasses of wine. This was in Germany.

Renee didn't like many glasses of wine.

But the best memory of all was watching BEN,
quiet, sweet Ben try to feed the ducks off
the bridge by Canada. 

Here's to making many, many more memories at the Food & Wine Festival.
