At the end of this month, my family is traveling to Florida and staying in Kissimee and meeting up with Mr BAM’s parents from New Zealand! I am so excited as our entire family has never been to Disney World and we plan on going for at least 2 days out of the week long stay! It will be great to experience the magic of Disney through their eyes as well as to enjoy all that our nearby base in Kissimmee has to offer. I’m also excited to announce that I will be guest blogging our family’s adventures over at I See Kissimmee, an online diary of bloggers’ stories from the heart of Florida. So make sure to look out for my tips for eating healthy while at Disney as well as the sights and sounds of Kissimmee’s great outdoors.
