Miss me?

I think this is the longest that I have gone without blogging since I started! I have been swamped since I got back from vacation and wound up taking yesterday off of work too to get caught up on laundry and go to the grocery. Today was catch up day at work.



We had an AWESOME time at "Mickey's House". Our resort (Disney Caribbean)was fantastic, the pools were great, the parks were SO FUN and the characters were EVERYWHERE! The only complaint we had all week was it was SO humid I thought I would die. One thing I will never get about kids is those little girls who insist on walking around the park in full out princess costumes. They had to be SO hot.



Our first day we hung around the resort at the pool. We got in at lunch time and just spent the day finding our way around and playing in the pool. Monday started the 5 days of park madness. We headed right to the Magic Kingdom and I just spent the day watching my children look around in awe. Pierce still remembers our last trip 2 years ago but this was all new to Mallory who was not even one on her first trip. I cant say she was a fan of many of the rides....they pretty much all scared the crap out of her except It's a Small World. But she LOVED being there and seeing all of her "friends". Pierce was SO excited to be tall enough to ride some "big" rides and loved going on Big Thunder Mountain. The look on Mallory's face when her idol (the mouse) came around the corner in a parade and she saw him for the first time....I will never forget!



Tuesday we headed to Epcot for about half a day. I love Epcot but other than the kick ass Nemo ride the kids were not all that impressed. Pierce went on the Soarin ride with Joe's parents, I am not a fan of simulated type rides. Wed we had breakfast at the Chef Mickey character breakfast where both kids pretty much grinned non stop and then we went to the Animal Kingdom where Pierce became scarred for life. He talked a big game getting on Expedition Everest which is an AWESOME coaster but it scared the crap out of him and he was all done with the "big" rides after that. It was SO hot that day that we called it a day and spent time at the pool and then to Downtown Disney to have dinner at T-Rex



Thursday was more pool time and went through the countries at Epcot so the kids could get their passports stamped. Friday was MGM which has really improved a lot since the last time I was there. There is a new Toy Story ride there that is SO fun and was the only long line we had all week (70 minutes). Joe and I even pawned the kids off on Joe's parents for 30 minutes so we could go ride the Aerosmith coaster (indoor, dark, lots of loops). Our last full day we went back to Downtown Disney for some shopping and then just played in the pool



No way could I recap the entire week. We had a blast, I love doing Disney through the eyes of my children. The kids are so into all of the characters and have full autograph books. I can't wait to go do it all over again in about 3 years. Here are a few pics that I have here at work










-PS...Im so sorry for being a bad bloggy friend. I skimmed through my reader 2 times while I was away but did not do any commenting. Im just now getting caught up!

Musings of the Mrs.

what do you think is the best age for Disney? I am dying to bring my niece but she's not ready yet. Is 3 good or do I wait till 4?

Raising Z

Looks like a blast! I haven't been since 2005 (before Z). We are trying to go at the perfect time (my whole family wants to go) but I don't know that there ever will be one ;) Someone is always having a baby.

Wow, sounds like you all had so much fun!! I love that huge smile on Mallory's face, the one in...ALL the pics! Guess she had a better time there than at the beach, huh? Your kids are just too cute!

I'm just me...

Looks like a blast!! Glad you all had a good time. I can't wait to take Tink and Hubbs, poor guy just turned 30 and has never been to Disney!

Heather

So glad to hear you had a great time!

Gabe loved Big Thunder Mountain, too! He refused to ride Everest...

Gabe was mesmerized by your photos; he wants to go back right now!

You've been missed! Welcome back!

Brandy

E @ Scottsville

Looks and sounds like y'all had a fabulous trip!

We've never taken our kids. It makes me sad that we've already missed that 'age of excitement' and they won't experience it in the same way that Pierce and Mallory did. =0(

Dead gum finances!

Glad y'all enjoyed it!!!

Sounds like you all had a great time. My girls never showed much interest in the mouse, and I wasn't all that impressed with Disney World, (I know it is completely different now.) when I was a kid so we have never gone, or really even thought about going. Now, I think they're too old at 13 & 16.

Maybe we'll get to go with our grandkids hopefully a LONG time in the future.

Glad you're back. Missed reading your blog.

Sigh....I heart Disney in the biggest way. I can't wait for my daughter to experience it the first time and to be there with her :)

Megan

That is so awesome!! It sounds like it was a trip with lifetime memories made. Can't WAIT to go back to Disney!! =)
