Papa’s World – Star Wars – Hollywood Studio – Disney – a dream come true!

Outside the entrance to Hollywood studio’s – where we took Ella for her 16th. birthday present.

She opened the envelope at her birthday party in July!

There was a picture of Star Wars and the attraction in Florida at Disney World.

“You will spend one week with grandma and grandpa in Florida!

You will ride down with them at the end of Jan.

and go to Holly Wood studios to see Star Wars

and at the end of the week – for the first time ever

They will put you on a plane and you will FLY back home!

Bode – who his World is Ella – and she is so good to him.

We had done something special for Maddy when she turned 16.

Her wish was to be able to swim with the Manatee’s!

So – in the winter – she and her mom flew down –

and she did just that – and then we all drove back home!

Ella – her little buddy is Bode

He follows her everywhere and she just laughs!

She is so good to him and when she goes to college next year

She wants to become a Phys Ed teacher to the little ones!

She will be excellent – so kind – so much of a good heart.

And a very good soccer player.

We spent the time touring with her also – showing her where my brother lived

and the three town centers of The Villages!

Brownwood of the villages.

We went to see the Manatees and the beach on the West coast

We toured the town where we were staying – and stopped in the coffee shop

to get her a chocolate chip cookie each time – she loved that!

Soon it would be time for her to FLY!

Standing in line as we all watched – her forst time and she handled it like a pro.

Tears welled in my eyes –

my little Ella ( tiny) is what we called her

all grown up and out on her own.

Now – be careful – don’t mix with strange people I worried.

When she was small – she would always come to me – clutch my leg –

climb up into my lap.

I cherish those memories – “IS HE OKAY” she said to her mother

when I had my heart attack.


as I went from vantage point to vantage point watching her in the long line.

Ella and Sherry – a trip she will always remember.

Papas World -closing out a great week-real produce!

This past week – we had a guest – Sherry’s Sister!

So – we decided on her last full day –

we would take her to the giant Flea Market

And we would pick up fresh produce

before we went onto Boardwalk –

The Disney resorts

and finally Disney Springs!

Everything is FRESH!

We were here a couple weeks ago with Ella!

And we had stocked up-but were running low!

The prices are really good!

You have a multiple pick of different vendors

but prices are all the same!

We picked and selected from a half dozen vendors

according to what we liked –

but really – they were pretty much the same!

You can see some of the prices!

I think we spent $16.50 for a whole big bag full –

Radish – tomato- blackberries-strawberries – apples – etc.

We walked among the other vendors on our way out –

This is all from Florida

After we were done – we headed to the Disney Resorts

and stopped at Boardwalk – where we took the new Skyliner

to different resorts – all for free including the parking!

Cheers from Edison
at Disney Springs

We then made our way to Disney Springs

after seeing SEVEN different resorts

by riding the Skyliner – walking and a boat ride

and it cost us nothing!

What a way to see all that!

I got almost 17000 steps on my fit bit!

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Papas World – Took a little trip – with ELLA!

We had been planning this for 6 months –

She turned 16 last Summer and for her present

We would take her to the thing she wanted the most!

Ever since she could talk and walk


Everything in her bedroom – STAR WARS!

So – we were coming to Florida for a month

just to get out of the cold

We could take her out of school

( she had all her classes caught up)

And we found good price on plane ticket home

( it cost more to check her bag than her ticket)

Star Wars
her birthday wish!

We arrived on Saturday in Winter Haven

and we had tickets for Monday at Hollywood Studios!

Ella and Sherry

It was everything she wanted!

Ella and the
Storm troopers!
Sherry and Ella
having fun in one of the stores

We managed to either ride or attend 10 different rides

and shows while we were there!

Ella showed us
how to operate the TV
in our condo! LOL

She is quiet and so good respectful

For some reason when ever she gets into a car

she falls asleep!

Heading for our first ride
sunshine and cool
43 degrees!

We made it to the rides

the longest wait was a little over a hour

some were only 20 minutes

and several of the shows we walked right in!

You can see
just how happy she is!

She is so easy to take anywhere

polite – quiet -and thankful!

Ella and Sherry
on the spinning ride!

It was a long day – we stayed until after the park closed!

I would take her anywhere!

Ella and Sherry

Walking together – grand daughter and grand mother

A picture says it all
