For Christmas this year we got the boys each one gift (a bike for Jack and a small Thomas track for Charlie… well, and Josh got a new pack of pacifiers ) and decided to drive down to Disney World for one of the days we were in FL. My parents and sister decided to go too, and it was such a treat to have extra grown-ups to help with all the littles.
My dad even got us a hotel the night before, so we wouldn’t have to do the drive down and back all in one day.
The boys pretty much thought the hotel WAS Disney.
Ready to head out the next morning.
On the ferry boat. We took 2 single strollers and a baby Bjorn and swapped kids in and out all day. It worked wonderfully!
As we were walking into the Magic Kingdom one of the many character shows was beginning. This was Jack’s very favorite part of our day. He LOVED watching the character sing and dance!
Dumbo was a hit with both boys!
Any carousel is a happy time.
While we were on a ride, Aunt Lala got the boys these Mickey ear hats. They adore their hats and still wear them daily. Jack even took his for Share Day at school.
Waiting in line at Mickey’s Philharmagic (a 3-D show) and the ever infamous “It’s a Small World.”
Enjoying a classic Mickey Ears Ice Cream, then watching the parade on Daddy’s shoulders.
Gigi and Papa… Lala and Jack
The kiddos definitely wore down, but they did great with no naps. That evening we watched the parade and rode the train all around the park to see everything one more time.
Josh was a little confused, and Charlie was out before we even got on the tram back to our car.
I feel so lucky that we were able to take the boys to “The Happiest Place on Earth,” and share their excitement with them.
