The Most Magical Place On Earth!

Delightfully, I got to spend a day on our vacation at the Magic Kingdom. As always, it was magical!

First things first...mom and Aleah went to see some princesses

and Dylan and dad went on Space Mountain and saw Buzz Lightyear
Sounds about right, doesn't it??
It was a good start to a great day!

We drove racecars

Dylan and I rode in a spaceship

We all went "Under the Sea" with Ariel and friends (sorry for the poor picture...didn't know if I should post any from the actual ride)

Mike's favorite part is all the people (insert sarcasm please)
I actually think that everyone at the park this day must have been on this street at this exact moment, because the crowds really weren't too bad!

We of course went on "It's A Small World" and saw the County Bear Jamboree

and of course...Cinderella's castle

It was a magical day...
and a very "romantic" way to spend our 18th wedding anniversary:
almost 12 hours of walking and keeping kids going to get the most out of our one day there.

Really though, I can't imagine a better way to celebrate the 18 years we have been married...
spending it together with our great kids :)

and then we had more adventures in our next days...

The Mouse

So, we are at Disney World with our kids. It is the first time either of them have been here. We started with just a partial day today at Hollywood Studios because it was the last day of their Christmas lights.

The kids most enjoyed the lunch at our hotel after we checked in, the parade right when we got to Hollywood Studios here this afternoon, Fantasmic (a light, water and theater show), and the Osbourne Family Dancing Christmas lights. Today was the last night they were being done so we were so thankful we found out about it! (thanks to the wonderful, Disney-wise family we sat by on our flight!)

It was so fun to get the first experiences of Disney without the totally overwhelming nature of the larger parks. The kids are doing great...wanting to stop at every souvenir shop they can find, but we have diverted any purchases until later so far. :)

Our plan is to do one of the larger parks tomorrow...probably Magic Kingdom. That is one of my favorite places in the world so I am so excited to share that with them!

Here are some photos, in no particular order because I can't do that on the blogger app I have.
