We get by with a little help from our friends

friend:  /frend/  
           A person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection

Where would we be without our friends?   I hope I never find out.   In a stroke of good luck, T2's best NJ friend's family has annual Disney passes.  So every spring break and every summer we have been able to spend time with them at the "happiest place on earth".    As if seeing the boys so happy to be together were not enough, the two families get along really well too.   This week, only T2 and I were able to get away (T1 had spring break a couple of weeks ago and Hubby had to work).   We had a wonderful time.    We met our friends at Epcot where we gorged ourselves on good food and good company.    The  culture shock of moving to FL from NJ has been pretty isolating and it was renewing to be able to spend time with people with whom we can be ourselves without fear of hostile judgement or censure.

We used Priceline for the first time and we were able to score a gorgeous room at a nearby, golf resort for $55 a night (I was careful to specify 4 stars in my bid).    How cool is that?!    I admit to being terribly impressed with myself.   The room was large and very nicely appointed,  the beds were luscious, and their buffet (although a bit pricey) was awesome.    We never did get to the pool and we don't golf but both were lovely to look at during our after dinner explorations.

We finished off our mini vacation with stops at Ikea, and a new to me yarn shop called Knit, arriving home last night tired and happy.
