Our first morning waking up in Disney World! The kids were SO stoked. The boys were both up and ready to go early! :)
We started the day at a slow pace and the boys went down by the food court and played a little ping pong after filling up on granola bars and hot chocolate. ;)
Then we got ready to go and headed over to the Contemporary Resort to have brunch at Chef Mickey's! This is the best picture I got of all three kids in their cute little shirts. Parker was not really down with the posing for pictures that morning (it didn't help that at one point, he flipped over the edge of the couch and landed hard on his head on the floor. There was a half-second there were I could have sworn he'd broken his neck).
Sweet little love was ready to meet the characters! :)
The Contemporary Resort has monorails going through it constantly - the boys thought it was about the coolest thing ever.
On our way to meet Chef Mickey! The boys were getting so excited at this point!!
They even had a little chair for Eisley and we all just laughed. Only at Disney World. ;)
"I SEE DONALD!!!"
This is pretty much how meeting the characters went this morning. Nathan about crushed their ribcages from the hugging and Parker clung with white-fisted hands to Jon saying, "I don't want to. I don't want to!" He loved them from a distance. ;)
Mickey Mouse and my biggest boy. Nathan still has to sleep with his little buddy "MeMo" every night. ;) This moment was just adorable.
There's a little show on Disney Junior called Minnie's Bowtique and Parker LOVES it. It's basically like a three minute show mostly featuring Minnie and Daisy but it also has the other characters in it occasionally. It's perfect for my boy's short attention span. ;) But he now thinks that Minnie's last name is Bowtique, and he was so excited to finally see "Minnie Bowtique" but not really down with hugging her yet.
Kind of, maybe, sort of warming up to the characters... #blessMinnie #sorryaboutyournose
This little man needed absolutely NO warm up time - Gabriel ADORED the characters! So so cute! He started kicking and laughing and flapping his little arms the second he saw one. :)
And LOOK!! Parker had finally warmed up and Pluto had him in total stitches!! It was SO cute!
Gabriel loved, loved, loved Pluto. He's the bestest kind of dog. ;)
After brunch, we packed up our already tired babies and our over-the-top
excited five year old and headed to Magic Kingdom for the rest of the day! Nicole and I attempted to get a picture of us with the littlest boys on the monorail. Hey, at least we're looking. ;)
On the monorail and ready for a great afternoon!!
We're at the Magic Kingdom!! Parker and Eisley were both pretty much out at this point. ;) Every morning of our trip, Nathan and I came up with a word of the day. Today's word of the day was magical and Nathan and I were determined we would have a magical day. :)
My fellow Disney lovers. ;) I can't imagine a trip to Disney without these two!!
Parker was just barely tall enough to ride the Goofy roller coaster! He loved it! He puts his hands up in the car now too if we happen to be going over anything remotely bumpy or over 25 miles an hour. Ha!
Sweet face - so much fun!!!
Okay, guys. Nathan was just barely tall enough to ride every single big ride in Disney World. And so he rode every single big ride in Disney World. ;) He LOVED the roller coasters. Like, he would have been totally content to only ride those and never ride the "baby rides" as he informed me the non-roller-coaster rides were. (My response may have been choking back tears and stopping myself from forcing him into a swaddle so he'll stop growing up so fast.) Love this face. He had the BEST time.
We ended the day riding all the rides. And I'll just leave you with this:
