Yes notice the Tinker Bell toy he is holding...ahh, my manly man.

Jack loved dumbo! He can now say elephant quite clearly!
Right after Ethan's birthday we took a vacation to Disney! Thanks mom and dad! It was an action packed week. First we took an airplane to Orlando. Each of my kids had a piece of roll luggage to bring on the plane. I have to say it was so cute to watch them proudly tote the luggage through the airport. It was a bit slow going, but well worth it! The kids did awesome on the flight and loved every minute of it!

While in Disney we visited all the parks and spent a day swimming at the condo. I do believe the kids will have many memories of this trip!


  • Ethan rode all the rides and loved them! We were really shocked!

  • Cam loved the fireworks. He had so many cute quotes. During the fireworks he said, " ohh, the red one was my favorite"

  • Jack loved everything, but the fireworks.

  • Meeting Mickey Mouse, both Cam and Jack waited all week to meet the mouse. They gave him kisses and were so excited. Ethan wouldn't go near him!

  • Eating lunch in the castle ( my kids loved it), However, I was a little concerned when they gave each of them a plastic sword before lunch (umm whose brilliant idea was that?)

  • Eating dinner during the hoopdie Doo (sp?). Fun dinner show that we all enjoyed.

  • Swimming at the condo. All three children got into the pool and swam for hours.

  • The monorail. A fav of all my children.

  • Animal Kingdom..All 3 children loved.

  • Eating at the Rain forest Cafe. Again a big hit, well until Jack fell asleep:)

  • Watching my brother with my kids. He was awesome and a huge help.

  • Having grandparents helping hands and sharing memories.

Low lights:

  • Hot hot hot...Not cute with a pregnant lady

  • Tantrums from tired kids.

  • Long lines

  • carrying around children in the heat (do you notice a theme?)

  • Ethan being stubborn and whiny (mostly tired and hot)

  • Cam not riding anything inside because it was dark (umm that's a lot of the rides)

  • Jack screaming through fireworks

  • Cam pooping on a bridge in Magic Kingdom (nice)

Overall, I think it's a trip we will have many memories from and we are grateful we were able to do it! Thanks again mom and dad. Having said that I think we'll take a few years of beaches before we do that again!

OMG - too funny! I like the pooping on the bridge (were you in China? since I think I witnessed that there too) We have thought many times about taking the girls but I don't know if I will have the patience.

You are all so brave.
