Disney Day 1

Day 1 was Magic Kingdom Day!  So much fun.

We were there before the park opened so we got to see the opening show.  I cried.  Yes, cried.  I was holding Justus and when the train pulled up and he saw Mickey and starting jumping in my arms screaming, “its Mickey!  its really Mickey!” and waving his chubby little 3 year old arm, I started crying.   We’ll just say it wasn’t the only time during the day I teared up watching my kids and their joy.

We attempted to get a pic with all the kids in front of the castle.  See grouchy pants on the far right?  He wasn’t having any of that smiling business.  At least not yet.

We spent the majority of the morning in Fantasy Land riding all the fun rides there.  The teacups, Dumbo, the Carousal, the Barnstormer Roller Coaster…we rode them all and we learned that Avery DOES NOT like rollar coasters, and Elliana could ride them all day long if we let her.   And by all day long, I mean, hands raised, screaming at the top of her lungs, and immediately asking to ride the ride again.  I love that girl’s love for life!

By about midmorning, I started to see Justus’ personality begin to emerge again.  We are waking that kid up way early in the morning so by the time we get to the park, he will be fun.  It took him 3 hours before he really woke up!

On our way to The Crystal Palace for lunch, we stopped and rode Buzz Lightyear.  I think that was my favorite of the day!  So much fun!!

And my favorite picture of the day….

After lunch with Winnie the Pooh and friends, Elliana got delivered a birthday surprise complete with a card signed by Tigger, Pooh, Eyore, and Piglet!

We then went to dance a bit in a parade

Wave our hardest to get Minnie to see us

And then latch onto Uncle Mark the whole way to the bus and back to the room.  See what Uncle Mark has in his hands?  Pink Cotten Candy.  He was like the Pied Piper leading all our kids from the park.  Its amazing the power of a little processed sugar =)

The rest of the afternoon was spent in the wonderful pool at the resort.  This place is amazing by the way.  It was just a perfect day.

I feel like I just used a lot of exclamations points in this post, but seriously, that may be the only punctuation that truly describes the day.  The whole day is one big exclamation point!!!!!  Now to go shower and go to sleep.  Tomorrow is Animal Kingdom day.  Can’t wait!

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
