Our Magical Vacation

We were lucky enough to spend the past week in Orlando at Walt Disney World. We have been needing a vacation and we couldn't think of a better place to take the kiddos to. We spent 5 days there and had so much fun that we were all exhausted by the time we got off the airplane. However, it was all worth it because watching the excitement on the kids face as they met Mickey was priceless. Ethan loved riding all of the rides and meeting all of his favorite characters. His favorite rides were the River Rapids because he got all wet and Soarin because the chairs basically turned into a hanglider. Gracie's favorite part was meeting Mickey and watching Playhouse Disney. Mickey was even nice enough to personally walk her out and she looked so cute holding his hand. Ethan and her both loved riding on the Toy Story ride. I could hear her yell out "Yay Gracie" every time she pointed the gun at a target. It was too cute. She is just like her brother and doesn't seem to show fear. She went on every ride she could go on even the Pirates of the Caribbean which got really dark. She didn't look phased at all. It was a great time and I know we will definitely go again in the future.

P.S. I have more pictures and video to go through so hopefully I can post them sometime soon.

Ethan said "Mom, they had ghost all over the place but
don't worry I wasnt scared because they were just puppets."

Us with Mickey, notice how Gracie is leaning her head on him. Just adorable!

Here he is walking us out.

My favorite part was meeting these guys. Ethan loved it
especially since he is going to be Mr. Incredible for Halloween.

Toy Story Gang

I had made reservations at this restaurant because I heard that all of the Einstein Characters were going to be there and we would get to meet them all but had no idea that Ethan would be able to dance with them and one of my favorite yoga gals, JOJO!
