Disney Adventures.....the conclusion

Yes, I realize I have a post labeled "Disney Adventures....the beginning" and now the "ending" but no middle. Oh well. We've been a tad busy.

Here are a few highlights from our week.......

*Convincing the girls that the rides and shows have fake people yet the Animal Safari has real animals

*Watching Anna Grace freak out when a "ghost" joined her on the Haunted Mansion

*Watching Alex and Anna Grace "space walk"  and skip through Tomorrowland hand-in-hand

*Listening to Abby scream on Rock 'n Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios (it never ended)....or so I'm told.

*Seeing Katie light up when she saw Beaker from the Muppets (her favorite! and yes, we bought it.)

*Asking Anna Grace if she was still with us on Space Mountain after a sharp turn (yep, I asked)

*Watching Katie and Alex be silly taking a Star Wars picture at Epcot

*Nine o'clock dinners and midnight bedtimes (oh my!)

*Searching for ice cream right before fireworks at Magic Kingdom (not recommended!)

*Being attacked by a killer stroller driven by an apologetic dad

*Spending four hours walking around the rain

*Not taking time to take pictures

*Buying the little girls charm bracelets and Alex.....a bow and (suction) arrow set

*Watching the girls feed the sea lions dead fish.....yuck!

*Riding the Mexican Small World (also known as the Mexico ride at Epcot)

*Watching Abby and Anna Grace drive (crash) their siblings on the Speedway

*After riding the Star Wars Tour at Hollywood Studios, Alex commenting, "There were so many things chronologically wrong with that, I don't even know where to start."

*Having my cousin Ryan join us for a day of fun.....brave man

*No tears and no meltdowns

*Meeting a dad at Magic Kingdom with the same double stroller we used to have and relishing in the fact we did not need it this trip......unlike our trip five years ago

*But the best thing, was having all four kids together for at least a few days. I know those days are coming to an end so we cherished every moment.....
