I'm lovin ur TR and lookin at ur pics. Im definitly subscribing and cant wait to read the next one. Your boys are so adorable.

I remember when we use to go to sea world on field trips and we would always get soaked but ended up getting in trouble for getting wet. Did you like the new shamu show?

I cant believe someone stole your stroller. That is just wrong.

Too bad ur camara died at MK.

Cant wait to read more.

Your husband looked soo thrilled...what a lucky guy!!!! You did great planning that...DId you suprise him that day or did he know before?? Love the pics of orlando...Those big sites get me excited because its those off site disney things that remind me your on vacation!!!!

Cant wait to read more....
It was a really nice day. The boys thought it was neat seeing all the race cars and My husband and I could really get used to being that close to track,lol. He was very excited. He had always commented on how it would be so cool to do one of the ride along experiences and so I figured I would one-up it and do a driving experience so he could really have some fun. I was going to wait until the day before to tell him but then I figured anticipation was half the fun so I told him(Ihad someone on the DISign thread make me a letter) about 2 weeks before we left so he could look forward to it and brag to all his buddies. I'm glad I did because I enjoyed hearing him all excited telling everyone. It was reallly hard planning our vacation though and keeping that a secret from him. I'm one of those that has everyday planned and wrote out in a planner and I couldn't write any of that down because I didn't want him to see it. Anyway, if your boyfriend loves Nascar, going fast and cars in general he will love it. It's rather expensive ($400 for 8 laps) but worth every penny....and my DH thought the same.

Thats it, I'm not reading any more of this trip report....

Just kidding, first the boys with the train and now hubby with the race car, I hope we you got to have a magical treat too.

Really nice update, great pictures out at the track
Lol, you scared me. I thought I had done something to offend you. No specific things for me this time. One of my dreams is to go to Discovery Cove and swim with the dolphins. Kids have to be a certain age to do it though and so I didn't want to do it and have them stand by and watch and not be able to participate. Some day though, hopefully. It really was ok though because as corny as it may sound just being at Disney with my family really is a dream for me.

Glad you are here! I wish we got soaked at the show for my boys sake but no such luck. We loved the new show. It is truly beautiful. Last year while we were there they were practicing for this new show and while we were waiting in line for the old show a nice older guy who worked there came out of the arena and took my boys into the arena with him and let them have a sneak peak at the new show. They got to stand there (and no one else was allowed in) while they practice. That was really neat.
Yeah, the stroller and the camera thing got me a little down but no biggy, after all, we were at Disney!

Wow! I'm really enjoying your trip report! As others have said, all of your boys are handsome and your little Cole is adorable! I was showing our DD11 your pics. We drive to Florida and stop every time at the Welcome Center for orange juice and pics. It's fun to see others who do the same thing.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Richard Petty Driving Experience pics! It makes me want to do it even more. I think the "Walt Disney World Speedway" writing on the track's walls is just so cool! Your pics are pushing me to do it too!

Thanks for all your efforts, it's a great trip report!

I'm glad to hear you are enjoying it. Thank you for the comments. It is good to know others do the same thing. We are thinking about flying nest time(I'm scared though...I even started a seperate thread for that) so We won't be able to do that
Glad you liked the pics of RPDE. I was surprised everyone was ok with them. I thought they would bore everyone that was used to seeing just Disney pics. If you are into to Nascar or cars in general you won't be dissappointed. My DH LOVED it.

No problem, I figured you might want to know if you were thinking about it. The prices for the Driving Experience go up from there. It depends on how many laps and such you want. The ride-along is a little cheaper. I think the website is www.1800bepetty.com

Glad you're here! Thanks for the comments. Hope you are ready because I have a lot of pics from AK. I am trying to narrow it down.

Day 4? (I think) Animal Kingdom day.

We decided today would be Animal Kingdom day!!! Our last park day We had never been to AK before so we were excited to see what it had to offer. We woke up at a pretty good time and had drive-thru breakfast on the way there. Finally we made it.


The night before we had made a stop at Wal-mart which wasn't far from our resort to put more pics on a cd so I could have an empty card to load up again. We saw some baby sunglasses and thought they were so cute. We said it would be neat if Cole would wear them because all the other boys had them and he always squinted and sneezed when the sun got in his eyes. Anyway, we figured it wouldn't work because most people know babies usually won't leave anything on their face/head. However, Cole loved them. He wore them proudly and just grinned from ear to ear. He must have known this would help with the ladies,lol. He is a big flirt. Here he is when we arrived at AK, sporting his new shades!






I just love that face!

After we make our way out of the parking lot we finally see this sign/entrance!


Then our first glimpse of the Tree of Life.

so pretty, so of course we had to take some pics right away.






Some pretty flamingos along our way.


I think this one was strutting his stuff


Ok guys and gals. I'm sorry to cut this update short but I just looked at the clock and I have to go pick up the boys from school. I will try to finish later.
