    Yes, good luck with the move!

    Hmmm, I'll guess that Jack braved Splash Mountain?

    Good luck with the move! I love all the pics and the one of the water with the track is pretty cool! :thumbsup2

    I'm guessing Jack braved BTMRR!

    Thanks, yep busy busy, today I took a me day though

    Thanks, I really just needed an escape, as we get closer to the move Jack has been having more fits, so I do think it is the move

    thanks and hmmm....

    Thanks you just need to have Jack with you, he takes pictures of everything, you'd have sooo many to weed through

    thanks, yeah it's not going to make our to do list next time :lmao:

    thanks and I'll try and have the answer to which ride Jack braved up in the next few days, things are starting to slow down with packing, it's mostly our day to day things left

    Nice pics of IASW. It was one of my Max's favorites, too. Its amazing to me how a ride as seemingly simple as that can still enthrall twenty-first century kids. Some things are just eternal I suppose.

    Good luck with the move! :goodvibes

    yeah, plus that catchy toon, lol

    Thanks, yes I would say this was our best day, and in future will probably do A LOT more MK





    So I had planned to do another post for MK this week, but sadly my laptop was broken the end of last week, so I'll have to wait until after the move. No sense in fixing it either since we called and they said to fix my screen would cost the same as buying a new one but we could hook it up to a regular monitor, so that is what we have planned once we move and I can get back to DISing again.

    Ten million days later.... sorry as soon as we moved I got a job, school started, and now we are into the holidays... which strangely is going to give me more time to finish this.

    So we left off with the shocker of the trip... Jack went on and REALLY enjoyed Splash Mountain
    [​IMG] [​IMG] he is in the second row on the right, the missing spot, lol
    [​IMG]


    So much he wanted to go a second time, but when they got in line again the ride broke down:confused3

    Here is what the little ones did while my sister, bil, dh, and Jack went on Splash:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    My niece wasn't shy at all, Joey let kids get in front of him and my Dad stepped in to make sure everyone got a turn :rolleyes1 He did it very politely and no one seemed to mind. And Joey was happy because that meant he got to go down the slide.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Now of course my brain doesn't remember anything anymore but according to my picture order we went on Peter Pan next. Joey was scared in the dark and held me tight. Jack seemed to enjoy himself and felt secure enough with his glow stick.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Then it must've been time to eat and we decided on CHH
    The kids had mac n cheese with grapes
    [​IMG]
    I had the anchors aweigh sandwich which strangely came with no side
    [​IMG] it was just what I needed
    and dh ate this
    [​IMG]

    Then it looks like we crossed a bridge
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    and headed toward the Jungle Cruise, where we ran into my Dh's coworker at the time.

    cont in next post

    Jack made another squished penny, then Jack got restless and took pictures and so I ended up with not many pictures from this ride.

    Then we made our way to Pirates and it was a long wait and we went in the regular line since we rode with everyone. Afterward the boys got some souveniers and were properly outfitted.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    At this point we seperated from my family due to Jacks increasing aggitation and we took the boys to ride Buzz.
    [​IMG]

    And of course the ride breaks down, so I took some pictures,
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    only to have everyone have to exit the ride shortly after that. The boys were in good spirits though
    [​IMG]

    So we took the boys back to the house for a nap
    [​IMG]
    and planned to return to try again that evening. And I promise our trip started to look up after that.;)

    After naps, dinner, and a quick dip in the pool my little family of four was ready to head back to MK for a magical night.

    [​IMG]

    We found a place to park and got the kids bundled in the stroller and headed toward the monorail
    [​IMG]

    But then we all agreed it might be fun to ride the Ferry once, so we instead headed in that direction
    [​IMG]
    We had a very enjoyable ride on the Ferry

    Then after making it through bag check fairly quickly we headed in and took some PP pics right away

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I can't remember the order we did things, I think we rode Buzz right away since it had shut down on us earlier in the day. A lady commented on how great the kids headphones were and what a great idea. I didn't feel like going into the why and just said thanks.

    Next up the People Mover, I know it isn't called that anymore but that is what it is to me :)
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Moving around the park with no real plan we ended up here
    [​IMG]
    And the boys were anxious to get their drivers licenses
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    We saw this and got excited for what future trips would bring
    [​IMG]

    Next the boys saw the Pooh ride and decided they wanted to play more since their play time got cut short earlier
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    They had refused to take the headphones off because we had told them about the fireworks, which they were adamant about not watching. As luck would have it the fireworks began as we exited Pooh, and we were left with crying/screaming boys, so we made a quick run for it toward Frontierland. Those was the only stressful part of the evening. Once the fireworks were over the boys relaxed and had a frozen treat
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Joey still refused to take his headphones off. But Jack did as he was anxious to try Splash again, which was still not operating. But he did agree to give BTMRR a try. We went on twice in a row, he loved the view of the castle when we were at the top of the ride. He had a GREAT time on that ride. :cool1:

    At about that time we decided we should head home to get some sleep, and as we made our way out of the park the parade had started and the boys agreed they would like to stop and watch a bit. We stopped off to the side and watched, it was a nice surprise to get to do, as I love parades and had figured I would get to see none on this trip.

    We browsed the shops and everyone got a souvie, can't remember what everyone got, but we all left happy and I was thankful for a very fun evening with my little family

    I am also glad you had a chance to update. I am going to try to read tonight when I can see your pictures. That will help me get up to speed a little better.

    Thanks, it was a quiet Christmas, nice little family time. Missed my mom and other family, but enjoyed time with my boys.

    Fireworks might not have been so bad but we were right under them


    Thanks, glad I still have a couple followers after my long break

    Today was our last park day :sad2:, my nieces birthday, and St. Patricks Day.

    Today we were headed to Epcot, but first the princess had to go have breakfast in the castle. So whilst my little family slept in my sister, my Mom, my Aunt Bea, my niece, and dbil headed to the castle for a breakfast fit for a princess
    [​IMG]

    By the time my family got going, they were finishing breakfast and World Showcase was opening. So we headed straight for Epcot with my Dad in tow. We arrived pretty much at the same time from what I remember
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    The princess had arrived and of course was once again trying to get the boys to play with her. Man she Loves them, my sister tells me she plays with my boys at home (make believe) to this day.

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    I really loved being there for F&G Festival
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    But the kids were ready to do something fun, so first stop:

    I'm not suppose to even bring up taking another Disney trip to my husband until the middle of next year, when we prepare to book our 10th anniversary cruise for 2014. But my sweet little 3 year old came to me today and said "Mommy I want to ride Mickey's bus and go to the Halloween party." So sweet. So of course I did what any good Disney Mom would do and started exploring, being that it's football season my husband would not be able to join us... so I crunched some numbers and while I'm not getting my hopes up, I'm going to start planning and wait to bring it up in a few months :rolleyes1:rotfl2:
