|We're Going to Disney!!|
It has been years since I started saving, but the time finally came...A Trip to DISNEY WORLD!!!
Can you tell that the kiddos are excited? This is the morning we left for Orlando. It was truly the most magical, wonderful vacation. I want to write about everything, or at least the stuff I remember before I forget about them. I think this will take a few posts to get everything in, but I want to start off with some of the little things the kids said throughout the week. I just LOVE them:
*We are seated on the plane to leave. Jack has the window seat and is absolutely excited about his FIRST trip on an airplane. Madie is a bit apprehensive, but reassures herself that she was on a plane when she was only a few months old. If she could do it then, she can do it now! As the TV screens go over what to expect while flying and all of the various "rules" needed to be followed while on the plane, Jack looks at me and quite seriously asks, "are we allowed to toot on the plane?" LOL! I told him that it isn't against the rules, but it isn't really something encouraged. He said, " Good! I don't think I could last over 2 hours!" What a kid!
*Madie has been anti-princess for quite some time now. She "outgrew" them way too early! I always have told her that if we ever go to Disney, she has to pretend to like them for me. While we were there, she admitted that her favorite princess was Ariel. She was absolutely thrilled to get to meet her!

*We went to the breakfast at Cinderella's castle (which was worth every single penny spent on the deluxe dining plan!) While there, my nephew received a HUGE kiss on the cheek from Snow White. He was hilarious about it! A couple days later, Jack informed me "did you know, Milo's first kiss was from a Princess!" He was so excited about it :0)

* All over the parks are pay phones. To be honest, it was almost funny to see them! Both of the kids asked me what they were and had to go over and check them out.
*At Disney, they really know how to treat someone on their birthday. We had two birthday boys with us this week, my nephew who turned four and my husband who did not turn four :0) For your birthday, you receive a button that says Happy Birthday (Your Name)! When you wear it, EVERYONE says HB to you. It's kind of fun. You also will receive some kind of cupcake or birthday treat at the restaurants for your birthday. It is crazy awesome. That is, unless you are a four year old that does not want anymore cupcakes or a thirty something year old that doesn't want any birthday attention. Seriously? I wish it had been my birthday...Bring on the cupcakes!! I loved it, by the end of the week, Milo was like, It's not my birthday anymore! I don't want a cupcake! LOL! Jack wore his dad's badge one day and was treated to some happy birthdays and cupcakes...he was as happy as can be!

|YUMMO! This was a fun cupcake. Probably the best birthday desserts were at Mama Melrose's--huge cupcake decorated like spaghetti with a meatball...or T-Rex's volcano cakes & ice cream. All very generous!|
