Fort Wilderness

Last week I received a text from my best buddy from back in the day, Dr. Cindita.  It said that she would be making a brief layover in Central Florida on her way to St. Kitts.  Would we be willing to meet up with her and her extended family for a cookout at their cabin at Ft. Wilderness?  If so, could we bring some paper plates, chips, salsa, lawn chairs, bug spray and an iPod docking station?

It’s been almost exactly a year since I’ve seen Dr. Cindita.  Too long!  I have missed her.  So, I immediately texted back with an emphatic YES!  We would be there with all of the supplies.

We were also excited to meet Dr. Cindita’s newest addition, Biscuit.  Biscuit is sweet little puppy that she and her husband found at a farmer’s market.  He’s what they are calling a CHUGAPOO…  Which would be part chihuahua, part pug and part poodle.  Whatever he his, he is precious!

Here’s their awkward family photo:

The cabin, as it turns out, was a glorified single-wide.  A darn nice, Disney-fied single-wide.  It accommodated our little party perfectly.  The boys especially loved climbing up on the bunk beds.  It would have been all over if I showed them how the Murphy bed worked in the living room though.  They would not have left it alone.  🙂

It was so great catching up with old friends if only for a few hours over grilled meats, s’mores and red wine in mason jars.  Life gets busy and money gets so tight lately that a year or more can go by before you see your out-of-state friends.  You have to grab these brief moments to see one another when you can.  I’m so glad we were able to do just that!

Happy early birthday, Dr. C!  Love you!
