Disney

P1670138


While we were there in Florida on spring break acting like tourists with all the crazy people, we just figured we would go ahead and go to Disney World.  Because let's face it, our kids could not possibly be more perfect ages.  Nine and eleven.  No strollers.  No piggy back rides.  No "I'm too cool."  No whining.  Barely any whining.  Perfect.

We spent one day at Magic Kingdom a few years back (WITH piggy back rides), so we decided to try Disney's Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM)

P1670108


and our all-time favorite, Epcot.



 Both were wonderful.

OK, I'll go ahead and admit it now. I'm a bad mother. Especially, compared to you! I never took my kids to Disney. In fact, they each had to wait until their late teens to go with the college swim team. Ella Numera Una even cried when she met Mickey. I'm not sure if that was because of exhaustion or excitement. These are wonderfully Superior Snaps. Glad you had a blast!

This trip just sounded like so much fun! I showed Kaish the disney pictures. He said your kids look cool and he wants to be their friend. I love him : ) I really should take him to disney world one day before he is a million years old : ) I am so glad you could go on this special trip!
