Disney 2008

So we took the plunge and took the kids to Disney. Now when we booked this trip and put our down payment down we did not know I was pregnant and going forth again, thank goodness I won't be pregnant ever again, I would not do Disney World Pregnant. It's very hard to walk around in the warm weather (thank God it wasn't really hot) and try to visit every park while you are there. We did however have a really good time. The girls loved it, albeit through some of the meltdowns and tantrums and since we wound up not going on our cruise because apparently you cannot travel on a cruise when you are more than 23 weeks pregnant, we didn't get to do the relaxing part of our vacation. So we stayed two extra days at Disney and did Typhoon Lagoon and Animal Kingdom. So while it was not relaxing we did have fun and the kids loved it.

Magic Kingdom

Hollywood Studios

One of their favorite rides the Teacup.

On the Dumbo ride.

A good rest.

And then the happy smile.

It's a small world ride, another big hit with the little one.

Lunch with the princess was a highlight. We got to meet Cinderella, Snow White, Princess Aurora, Belle and Mary Poppins, but Kaleigh did not want to take a picture with Mary Poppins because she was not a princess.

A must at Disney, especially by day 3.

Her first real Carousel ride, she loved it!

Speed Racer.

An unhappy princess.

A real highlight for us was breakfast with Mickey and pals they loved it and it was the best day we had a Disney.

Such a difference a few years makes, 4 years ago Jordan was almost 3 and wouldn't go near any characters this year she was just so excited and wanted to hug them all.

Madison wasn't exactly crazy about them but she was willing to give Pluto a kiss on the nose.

Disney Market - Madison liked the dragon from Lego World.

The Finding Nemo ride was cute at Epcot but the Finding Nemo show at Animal Kingdom was really good, the girls really liked that, it was really well done.

The Hoopdy Doo Review - A really fun show that involves the actors and the audience. A little pricey for what the food was (barbecue) but the shows was fun.

Our last night at Disney, everyone had a lot of sun and we went to see a really good friend of mine from High School and her family (two of the cutest boys on this earth) who live outside of Tampa. I'm so bummed we didn't get to take one picture, it's not like we didn't bring the camera but I think by the last night there we were fried, not just our skin but our brains as well. We all had had enough of the meltdowns and we were all exhausted. I hope I don't have to wait another seven years to see them.
