I'm a blog bum! I'm finally going to post some pics of our Disney trip! The kids have been driving me crazy lately! I'm blaming it all on the trip to Disney World! I really didn't take that many pictures at Disney World. I'm going to say that we were just having a fun time enjoying everything, and didn't stress about getting the perfect picture everywhere!

Day 1: Magic Kingdom

Cinderella's Carousel

After the Dumbo ride. I was too chicken to use my camera on the Dumbo ride (afraid it would fall and be gone forever!).
Before the Haunted Mansion. Lets just say that John was not nearly so happy during the ride! My tip for Disney goers, don't take your toddler on Snow White's Scary ride first thing!
Watching the parade!

Day 2 - Animal Kingdom
Ruthanne with Pocahontas

The kids with Safari Minnie Mouse (right before we saw the Lion King show)
Brushing the goats at the Conservation area.
With Rafiki.
Day 3 - Magic Kingdom again!

At the Tomorrowland Speedway. Ruthanne is "driving" because Luke couldn't fit behind the wheel! John is in there too (in the middle). I couldn't ride this one but got to take a picture by hanging out in the smoking area!

This was the day of characters. We happened on lines that weren't too long, so the kids got to meet some people! Sleeping Beauty.
Mickey & Minnie Mouse
This is on the Barnstormer roller coaster. Again, I couldn't ride. We sent Ruthanne in a seat by herself. She was not a fan. Hint, if you can't ride, make your spouse go multiple times with the young children!
After lunch this day, John had had it. He was tired and out of whack. So, he and I went off by ourselves and let Luke & Ruthanne do some more adventurous rides! We rode the train all the way around and just walked around. We had told them we would get ice cream, so I went ahead and got John his Mickey Mouse ice cream. He LOVED it, and pretty much ate it ALL! Ruthanne got some later, ate the ears off and was done, seriously what is wrong with her?
Buzz Lightyear.
It was a fun trip and I'm glad we decided to go ahead and go while the kids were still young and we didn't have a baby to worry about. If you are military, they have a really awesome deal this year, and you should definitely try to go (military employee gets a free 5 day pass and can get 5 additional 5 day passes for $99 each).

Hopefully I'll be blogging more, but who knows! I have lots of little projects I want to get done before we have this baby (who may have a name but we are still a little unsure).

Ha ha, we totally went on the Snow White ride first and it really scared my nieces.
Great pictures!! It looks like you had a great time!
Did you like Animal Kingdom?

I was waiting to hear about your trip. It looks like so much fun, the girls would have died meeting those princesses. I'm now craving a Mickey Mouse icecream bar!!! We miss you guys!

What neat insight! I have this dream of taking my nieces to Disney World when they are 4 and 5, and I was wondering if that would be too young. Sounds like you had a blast!

I really loved the Buzz Lightyear picture. I'm glad y'all had a good time.
Kimberly's coming (with Katelyn)to visit March 22nd for 6 days. Y'all ought to have a get-together.

Christine, I think 4 and 5 year old girls especially have lots of fun at Disney. It seems like more of the "boy" rides are for older kids, but there are lots of girly, princess-y things to do there! You definitely don't want to wait until they don't like princesses anymore! And what a cool aunt would you be!
