A Short Recap

If you follow me on twitter then I am sure you got tired of me talking about our vacation to Disney World. It was the first time for all of us and we had a blast. Although I do wish I started training for the trip in advance. I simply had no idea. Here is a short recap of our trip...


KJ's Favorite part was getting to meet Buzz Lightyear. "To infinity and beyond" has now become part of his daily speech. He really can fit it into any circumstance. It's a hoot.


Ellie's favorite part was doing the princess experience in the castle. We surprised her. They decked her out like a princess head to toe. She then got to meet a bunch of princesses and she was in high heaven.


My favorite part was getting to spend some much needed time with the Mr. Oh, and the food was amazing too. I am now in need of a detox. This friend is going to help me.
The funniest part of the trip was when Aladdin and Jasmine kept on asking Ellie if she remembered certain parts of the movie. She kept on saying no. They then asked if she ever even saw the movie. She said no, they were heartbroken. Ellie simply wanted to meet the pretty princess. ha. No worries though last night we watched the movie.

* Today I am also on Mrs. French.

That is too funny about Aladdin! All of you look like you had an amazing time, so glad you had a safe & fun trip.

I think we are making this trip next year, deep breaths and I will be emailing you for tips.

As for the detox, right there with you. I asked the Hubs what he wanted to eat this week, he said lettuce with water dressing. xo

SO cute...we went to Disney World in October and I still have not really posted much about it. it was our second time (but our first time with Kate). We took the boys years ago...and yes, you do ned to "train" for it:)

Nuha said...

I'm in my 20's and visiting Disneyworld is my dream, haha...I'd probably tackle every single Disney Character as soon as I saw them...oh the price you pay for not going in your childhood years

Sarah said...

What great photos... Isn't it magical seeing Disneyland through your kids eyes? We took our boys for the first time in November and it was a blast even with pouring rain at the end.

I have never been to Disney and can't wait to go one day. It looks like you all had a great time. Ellie looks so adorable as a princess.

How fun!!! That princess pic is too precious!

Katherine @ Grass Stains said...

We went a year ago and -- with three boys 6 and under -- Buzz was a favorite for us, too. We have a new baby on the way (don't know the gender yet), and if it's a girl next time we'll have to meet more of the princesses! Love your pictures. :)
