Orlando Vacation pt. 7

*pt. 7...really??!?!?! ;)

Sunday was the last day Mark and Jerry were going to be with us before heading back to STL. They both had to work Monday so we tried to squeeze as much in on Sunday as we could. The had to be at the airport mid-afternoon. We started the day at Hollywood Studio's. We were really excited to see all the Disney Junior characters. 

We watch the Disney Junior live show first thing...the kids didn't enjoy it as much as we thought but we still had a great time! Soooo glad we went there very first because the line was SUPER long the rest of the time we were there. 

After the show we went to The Magic of Disney Animation and we all got to draw. ;) It was so cute and we got to draw Donald! Maw Maw and Mark did amazing! Sis and I didn't get to finish thanks to her needed to be taken to the bathroom. ;/

After drawing we walked over to get our picture taken with a few of the Pixar characters. We got to see Woody, Buzz, Lighting, and Mator. The kids LOVED it!!! We also were able to watch the 3D Muppet show. ;) 

After meeting the characters we went to ride Toy Story Midway Mania. It's my favorite ride at Disney! Wyatt rode with us and Sis rode with Maw Maw and Paw Paw. We had a blast!

We enjoyed a pizza lunch at Pizza Planet before headed to our car. We took the guys to the airport and Denise and I took the kids back to the condo for a nap. Since we had tickets for the entire day we decided to take the kids back that evening. I was SO glad we did! Holloywood Studio's has an AMAZING display, like unreal. Over 35 miles of lights on one small street and even complete with fake snow! Yes, I may have shed a tear or two. ;) 

We closed the park down that night and this one was still ready to party...

Zetta turns ONE

Last weekend was Zetta girl's birthday party!! We were so excited to go and see family but Sis was still sick. Wyatt and I went down to Jackson by ourselves for the party. ;( We had a great time just the 2 of us so it all worked out.

My sister did such a great job decorating. The food was all wonderful and she made that super cute smash cake ALL HERSELF!!!

In true Zetta fashion she didn't want to get her hands sticky or messy. It took a little bit before she would actually try anything other than throwing the cake onto the floor. Look at that little face...

It was a great party and such a great time to celebrate Zetta girl!!!

Orlando Vacation pt 6.

Magic Kingdom is breathtaking...I know that sounds crazy but it's true. Then add Christmas decorations and Christmas music all around and it will bring you to tears. Well, it did me! ;) The kids were literally in the happiest place on Earth and loving it!

By the time we made it over to the park and got settled in we were there just in time to see the Celebrate a Dream come True parade. It has lots of the characters and people start lining up super early! Thanks to Paw Paw and Maw Maw we had great seats. While waiting the kids had the entire front of the castle to play.
They had their own little dance party!

The parade started and Sloane absolutely loved it! When she saw Toy Story characters I thought she was going to run into the street. She was screaming and jumping in her seat...all while Wyatt quietly watched while eating his popcorn from his Santa Mickey that he needed real bad.

Above are 4 of my most favorite pictures from the trip. I love the castle in the back ground and the smiling faces of Mark's parent's in the back ground. Pure Joy...we truly are blessed to be loved by such wonderful people!

After the parade we headed to a few of the rides for the kids. We had pulled fast passes and it was almost time to use them. The tea cups were one of Wyatt's favorite rides last time we were at Disney so we were hoping for the same this time...

We rode the Mad Hatter tea party, and all got to ride in a car in the Tomorrow Land Speedway. We waited in line for the Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin but Sis found a friend with a bubble gun to help pass the time...

After the Buzz ride Sis fell asleep and Wyatt and I jumped on the Prince Charming Regal Carousal together. It was fun to have a little time with my little Mr. ;) 

*I have to say...that's a pretty nice looking baby wearing Daddy right there! ;) 

After Prince Charming we headed over to the Pooh ride. The line was pretty long and the fastpass wasn't working but we decided to wait in line. There are a few fun little games and activity tables along the way so we didn't think the kids would mind. While we were waiting the FP for a roller coaster, Space Mountian, for Mark and I came. We hopped out of line and the kids stayed with Maw Maw and Paw Paw. 

When we got back from our ride we coudn't find them anywhere...there had been a "honey spill" on the Pooh ride and we had to wait for them to escort the people on the ride off...we laughed about it when it was all over but for a while we were a bit nervous. LOL!

We took had FS to meet a few princess, thank goodness, so we got to meet Cinderella and Aurora. The kids were amazed and Sloane LOVED them!!!

Mark and I took Sloane on an Ariel ride Wyatt didn't want to go on so he got to stay with Maw Maw and Paw Paw. They rode the Dumbo ride together and so we practiced while we waited. ;)

I know I already mentioned about the moon and how awesome the night pictures were but these of the castle are so awesome!!! Some of them don't even look real....

Orlando Vacation pt. 5

*I know these vacation posts are getting out of control but I really don't want to just write 1 post with 1,000 pictures so I am going to continue to split it up. Sorry...I know not everyone enjoys the mouse as much as us. ;) 

Saturday morning we got up early and headed back to Epcot. There were a few things we missed the day before we left. The kids were excited to meet all the characters too! 

We took the monorail and both the kids thought it was a ride. LOL! 

It was still raining but we got poncho's and didn't let it stop us! 

Even though the pictures don't really show it the kids did love meeting them. They were a little shy at first but wanted a pictures with them! Phew, poor Wyatt and his cute little smile. ;/ 

Epcot was a fun park despite the rain. The kids enjoyed Journey into Imagination Land and Spaceship Earth in Epcot as well. I know I said it last post but it's Epcot is one of the prettiest park in my opinion and with it decorated for Christmas made it even prettier. ;)

After finishing up lunch and the rest of the stuff we wanted to do at Epcot we took the monorail back over to  Magic Kingdom...
