We went to a University of Miami Hurricanes Football game against Kansas State. It was a lot of fun, except the Hurricanes lost on the last play of the game.
In October, during Fall Break, Clark's family came to visit and we had a great time with them. Unfortunately, it rained a lot while they were in Miami, but we still had a good time going to the beach, the Vizcaya mansion, and just hanging out. We were mostly just really happy to see Clark's family and spend time with them.
We also had a lot of fun going to DisneyWorld for a few days while Clark's family was in Florida. We went to the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Epcot. We stayed at a really neat hotel with four or five different pools and hot tubs that we all enjoyed playing in.
A few weeks later, Uncle Stan and Aunt Carol were in Orlando for a conference Stan was attending. We couldn't pass up another opportunity to go to DisneyWorld and we were especially excited to see Carol and Stan and spend time with them. We had a lot of fun going to the Animal Kingdom and Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. Andrew dressed up as a cowboy, with the inspiration for his costume being Woody from Toy Story. My friend Megan Watson was so nice and helped me make Andrew's vest and Aunt Carol kindly contributed a Mickey cowboy hat, a toy gun, and a sherriff's badge to Andrew's costume. We had tons of fun going around getting candy, which was handed out at different places all over the Magic Kingdom park.
We went to DisneyWorld yet again to celebrate Thanksgiving. We had a Disney Thanksgiving dinner in the park at a Colonial themed restaurant called Liberty Tree Tavern. We also took Andrew to see Santa Claus, who was visiting DisneyWorld while we were there. Despite his reluctance to sit on Santa's lap, Andrew was really excited to see Santa.
In early December, we were lucky enough to have my cousin Mattie and her husband Josh come visit us from Connecticut while they were in Miami to go on a cruise. Andrew absolutely loved Mattie and Josh and was so sad when they had to leave. We had fun hanging out and going to the Everglades. Mattie and Josh were also really nice and helped me in the Nursery at our church on Sunday.
