We're Back!

We had such a great time in Disney World!!!! I need to start by thanking my parents who organized this trip, rented the most beautiful 4 bedroom condo ever (complete with 4 different swimming pools, a spray park and a lazy river) and paid for all of our park tickets. It was such a huge blessing to us mom and dad and we all genuinely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making this trip happen. This vacation will be VERY hard to top. Disney World is not what you would call a restful vacation:-) I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation; but, I will be the first to admit it was worth all the effort just to see Ryan and Ally's joy-filled little faces!

Day 1-Flying from Austin to Orlando
This was Ally's first plane ride and she slept almost the entire way-yay!

We landed no problem and I did a lot better on this flight than usual. We were off to Wal-mart for groceries and then to the Wyndham Bonnett Creek Resort. Thank you Katy for letting Ally borrow AnnMarie's princess sleeping bag. She looked forward to sleeping there every night! Praise the Lord!!!
Day 2 Magic Kingdom

The next morning we were all a little tired when we headed to Magic Kingdom. As usual Ryan LOVES taking pictures (Disney did work some magic and he got progressively better.) Thank you Erica for the use of this incredible double stroller. It was a necessity and we could not have made it without a double stroller.

We rented 2 awesome minivans and drove to the parks each day. We didn't realize that if you aren't taking the Disney bus system you have to take the Ferry or the Monorail to Magic Kingdom. The kids all thought that this little grass Minnie was the real deal. They were all really easy to please!

On the ferry to see Pluto-Ally's favorite

We saw The real Mickey Mouse a little later in this parade.

Dumbo was a must! Flashback pic: We went to Disney World in March 2005 with NFIB and Ryan rode Dumbo when he was 18months-Look at how tiny he was!!!

Ally did not like waiting in line!

But she LOVED going way up high

Ryan and Daddy also enjoyed this one.

Cinderella's castle

This picture makes me laugh. Hot+Tired+Hungry=terrible picture!

It's a Small World with Honey

The highlight of the day for our family was the Buzz Lightyear ride. Everyone enjoyed it!!!

Little smiley!

Honey and Ally on the Tea Cups

I dropped my camera not once but twice at Magic Kingdom-fumble fingers-so that's all the pictures I have for day two. We also did the Spray park, Monster's Inc. Laugh Floor, and rode Speedway. Thankfully my camera started working the next morning so we were good for the rest of the trip. Epcot coming soon!
