Since returning home from the house of mouse, I’ve been busy scrapbooking our vacation. Can I just tell you how much fun I am having? (And how very little sleep I am getting, staying up until 2am scrapping my ideas…) I am pretty sure in the 8 years I’ve been scrapping, I have never, ever completed an entire themed album. I am so happy to get these pages printed and into a book for my kids to enjoy. I’ll be sharing them here soon.
Since we’re still in Disney mode over here, my brother brought over a handful of pictures from when my own family used to vacation there in the 80’s. We would go every Spring. I was most excited to see some of the character pictures. You wouldn’t believe how much Winnie the Pooh has changed (for the better might I add).
I present to you something I like to call Retro-Style Disney World -or- Disney In The 80’s Complete With Weird 80’s Fashions -or- Those Gabbola Boys, My How They Coordinate. You pick.
An alternate title could be Gina Takes On Disney World Rocking The Socks + Sandals Look. Thank you Mom, for accentuating my already large feet at the ripe old age of 6.
May 1987. Disney World. Orlando, Florida
Something neat in the above picture: I was 6 1/2 which is the exact same age that Andrew was for this past trip.
I really love this picture posted below. Well, aside from the sandals now paired with contrasting socks. But Snow White and Dopey still look the exact same. We are still in 1987 here.
White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland. If you take a look at him just last week, you’ll notice his face is covered in more fur and he lost the ginormous clown collar. He doesn’t seem to wear a pocket watch around his neck anymore like he did in the 80’s. May 1987.
When looking at this one, I actually smiled and said to my brother, “Aww… wait. Who is this?” LOL! I sort of forgot all about Robin Hood. My kids had NO CLUE who this was! We took a picture with Friar Tuck this same day as well. This was in April 1989. I was 8 1/2.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
