I’m back!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Photography

And I bet you didn’t even know I was gone. :)

We have just returned from a holiday. I’m not going to reveal where we were just yet. I thought it would be fun to post a few photos and have you guess where we were and what we did.

To make it a little harder, I thought I’d only use photos taken by Emma and Sarah. I’ll keep adding photos to this post until someone guesses.

Hint: They’ll be more-or-less in chronological order.

There is a handful of people out there who know where we’ve been, so no fair spoiling it for the others.

Here we go:

No guesses yet? Okay, how about this one:

I am thinking that looks a bit like the Animal Kingdom in Disney World!
I can’t wait to hear more details!

I seem to remember something mentioned about Florida a while ago? Disney World? Definitely the right time of year to go there…

It’s a toss up… Magic Kingdom Jungle Ride or Animal Kingdom Sarfari ride .

On 2nd thought, I’m going with my first guess Jungle ride.

We did the Disney too this year with our girls in mod January. I;m just to far behind in my blog to post photos :)

I recognized the Ottawa airport before I even saw the wing of the plane. I’m voting Disney also. I haven’t been in almost 15 years, but that’s got to be it! If not, it’s time for another photo!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
