A couple days before our trip to Florida, June and her fiancée Collin came home to Augusta, Georgia to spend some time with family and so we could exchange Christmas gifts. Our little group (Amelia + Michael & June + Collin) had been hoarding knick knacks for months. The gift exchange included brooches + records + a comissioned painting (Amelia had a Doctor Who painting commissioned for me and I almost cried/died, but I wouldn't have regenerated... so I didn't. xoxo June) + candy + lots of stuff (June bought me the most amazing presents including a Buffy the Vampire Slayer action figure. My nerd heart melted xo Amelia) because we overdid it and we're awful bloggers because we got too excited and forgot to take photos. HOWEVER, we did go on a sushi date afterward and we took some photos before that, it's quite obvious who was whose date.
The rest of that day was spent in Downtown Disney, which was absolutely amazing. We knew there was no way we could cram both parks into one visit, so this was an amazing way to experience a little bit of the Mouse (Not going to lie. The lack of Ariel merchandise made me sad. :( Amelia). We watched Collin have kid-in-a-candy-store syndrome in the Vinylmation store, and then we wandered around and found a hot air balloon, and in lieu of taking a ride, we used it as a photo prop. WHICH WORKED JUST AS WELL BECAUSE WE'RE IN LOVE WITH THESE PHOTOS.
Our last day in the park was spent making our rounds and visiting Wizarding World again so we could get a final Butterbeer and grab some last minute souvenirs. Our last act of vacation-ing was stopping at a record store, Park Avenue, on our way out of Florida.
