On Day 5, our family, me, Mojo, Girly Girl & Button Boy, began our day just the four of us at Magic Kingdom. We rode lots and lots of rides and just had a great time spending time at Disney as a family!!!
We met my parents around lunchtime and got to spend the rest of the day with them. We left the parks early that day and returned to the Animal Kingdom Lodge to swim with the kiddos in the FREEZING SWIMMING POOL!!!! — but the kiddos loved it because they had life jackets that they could wear and be free in the pool, and there was a water slide they could go down…BUT IT WAS STILL FREEZING!!!!!!
That evening Mojo and Girly Girl went back to Magic Kingdom for some Daddy and little girl time…and Button Boy and I packed up and went to bed early!
My dear friends, Dinah and Michael — and their daughter Kylie, are in Ethopia picking up their new children! Please visit their blog and join us in praying diligently for their trip and their new additions to their family!!
Blended, Beautiful and Blessed
Girly Girl’s last week of first grade has been busy….this is how she ended up the other evening after an emotional day of telling her friends and teacher good-bye for the summer.
Anyone who has known me since high school knows that my favorite Disney Princess is Princess Ariel. She has such a free spirit and a love for all things. I can truly identify with her open heart and desire to explore the things that are unknown to her. I think one of the reasons I love to travel is because I have a love of adventure…I love the new experiences of travelling…I love to watch my children experience new things…and Disney filled those loves for me!
During our trip I got to see my children come out of their shells from Day One until we left…they became more and more willing to experience the imaginary world of Walt Disney….and it was topped off on Day 4 when we met Princess Ariel at her grotto in Magic Kingdom.
The second wonderful experience that I had, was actually doing something with my Girlie Girl. The Bippity Boppity Boutique was the type of experience that I would have flipped over as a child…and as a Mommy, I really wanted to be in my daughter’s shoes!!! She had such a wonderful time and watching her transform from the little~big girl I have into a Disney Princess, was just about more than I could stand…I stayed emotional the entire time we were there…which, of course, is a mother’s prerogative!
