Hoopdy Doo

This is a blast from my past. I’m on the right in between my dad and mom, my cousin is on the left in front (of course!). It’s obviously the early ‘70’s because my brother isn’t there and well, look at the clothes. Yes, those are plaid pants on my mom and it looks like sunflowers on my dad’s shirt. But we all look good and we look so happy. How could we be anything but, since we are in the happiest place on earth (for you uninitiated that’s Disney World)?  We’d go down in the winter, often with my aunt and uncle and during the school year which was fun (teachers don’t hate)! I have nothing but wonderful memories of Disney, it was so magical and as a child who had “an overactive imagination” to quote my teachers, it was a match made in heaven. I don’t get back as often as I’d like, but for me, when I think of dream vacations, it’s Disney at the Polynesian, or France.

I think we are at the Hoopdy Doo Review, it’s still around and I remember it as an old fashioned good time with songs and family style food. I remember always wishing during the sentimental section that the cute guy (there was always a cute guy), would sing Shenandoah to me. I have a vague memory of him doing this, but that’s probably only a kid’s dream. I can’t say it enough, we had so much fun, laughing and having running jokes.  We’re all older now, and don’t take those trips.  It’s too bad. 

So, why this picture, today? I’m still working out housing and just general stress about the huge life change I’m about to undergo. But it will pass, and I will know that I can do anything I set my mind to and my dreams are coming within reach. Until then, wishing all of us Disney Dreams…
