Fun Day at Disney


After a long day to get to Disney and a long day at Epcot, I was glad we planned a day to hang out more.


Charlie loves The Incredibles and wanted a picture with this cutout in our hotel.

We had lunch at Rainforest Cafe in Disney Springs.

The kids were very excited to get these animal themed cups filled with Icee! One of the fun parts about vacation!





 We had fun getting a few posed snapshots!


I love these three so much!

Outside the Christmas store.

After the kids spent their gift cards from Tinkerbelle at World of Disney, we headed back to the hotel for some down time and swimming. For dinner we went out for pizza and met a great balloon artist who made a cool butterfly and dinosaur out of balloons.

We were in bed early so that we could get an early start for our next day in the parks!

Epcot Day at Disney

The kids had a four day weekend for fall break and we couldn't resist making the most of it and taking a short trip to Disney!

Ready for Disney!


Woohoo! We are ready to be in Epcot!

Excited to be at Epcot for the Food and Wine Festival! 

Love them in their darling Mickey and Minnie ears!

The moment we got into Epcot, we made our way to the new Frozen ride. I tried hard to get a Fastness for it, but couldn't. So, we waited in the long line.
My pretty girl excited to be at Disney!


Can't wait to see what Elsa has in store for us!

Elsa proclaimed a summer snow day!

Check out Arendele!

Yoo-hoo! Family!

The animatronics in this ride are really well done! They included the songs and the major pieces that the kids love from the movie!




There is an added surprise when the boat switches gears and reverses its way down the other side of the ride showing a whole new set of scenes!


We had a chance to meet Snow White while we made our way through Germany. Charlie got nervous and decided he did not want his picture with her.

Charlie did enjoy the Finding Nemo ride with daddy!

 It was hugs all around when we met Mickey!








We all enjoyed meeting Mickey, Goofy, and Minnie! The characters are so sweet to the kids and they love getting all the autographs!

We also met Joy and Sadness from Inside Out!

I had no idea who this robot was, but the kids knew he was Baymax from Big Hero 6!


 We lucked up and met Anna and Elsa without waiting in much of a line!



I love how they held hands while they waited for their turn!

Sissy wore her Frozen dress hoping she would get to ride the ride and meet the princesses! I am so glad that it worked out!

To make the most of their fall break from school, we left to go to Disney on a Thursday evening as soon as Sarah Graves finished her gymnastics class. In our haste to get on the road, we forgot to grab her tennis shoes that she wore to school that day and only had her flip flops with us! Poor thing felt so awkward wearing her flip flops to Disney and is not used to walking in them very long! Her feet were killing her and finally I spotted these Minnie Mouse Crocs! They even light up! She was set for the rest of the trip!

Charlie was getting so tired by the time we took this picture. He started to nod off in the stroller and I lured him out with the promise that he could go to sleep as soon as we took the picture.


I was surprised that she made it up to see the Illuminations fireworks show that night. We had a late night getting to Disney and the fireworks start pretty late. She was excited and enjoyed watching them.

We had a great first day in Disney! The weather was gorgeous, we were in good spirits, and we were able to do all the things we wanted and more!

Mommy Charlie Date Night!

Sissy and Daddy had a father daughter dance in the spring and this year the mommies and little boys had a special date night at a school carnival! Charlie was thrilled to get a special outing.

The bouncy fun caught his attention the moment we arrived! He enjoyed an obstacle course, super slide, and a play area that seemed to be the favorite for all the boys!


He was so excited to show off his preschool playground and had a great time playing in there!

He was pretty keen to check out the cotton candy available!

 He had a great time decorating his "zombie" pumpkin! He used a lot of red to draw blood coming out of his head and even gave his zombie some stitches! The moment he woke up the next morning he was downstairs checking on his pumpkin! So cute!







Pre-K in the Park

We had a class social at the park for Ms. Carrie and Ms. Chas' Pre-K class. We met early on a Saturday morning and had a great turn out! Fueled by doughnuts and juice, the kids had a great time playing together.
