When we were at Disney, the kids were always on the look out for ducks. Not just Donald and Daisy, but these guys as well.
What you can't see in this picture is the fact that the kids were over tired.
There *might* have been a near miss as the big one slipped through a crack in the fence and tried to chase the ducks. Someone *might* have had an accident only to discover that Mommy forgot to pack extra panties and the extra pair of shorts were wet from the rain. There *might* have been two crocs (one pink, one black) *accidentally* dropped into the fenced off grassy area before we caught onto the little game. Okay it *might* have happened more than once.
We found the ducks, but it wasn't feeling like the happiest place on earth for Mommy and Daddy.
There were over 500 pictures from our Disney trip. Even though it was over a month ago now, I have a number of Disney posts left!
My dad booked us into a family suite at the Art of Animation resort. We were in the Cars section. My kids haven't really watched Cars (yet) but they still loved running around the decorations. We've stayed at Disney resorts before, but the grounds of this one was impressive even by Disney standards!
On our second day, we started at Hollywood Studios. The Irishman was excited that we were there for Star Wars weekend. Caitlin was not impressed. She hid in the stroller so that the Star Wars wouldn't "get her."
All was forgotten by the time we reached the Disney Junior show. They updated the show from the last time we were there. Caitlin and Sean loved it. Doc, Sophia, Mickey, and Jake are family favorites, so they loved seeing them on stage.
After the show we lined up to see the characters. Last time Caitlin wasn't so sure about Handy Manny. This time they were old pals.
What surprised me most was how both kids reacted to Jake. They both ran up for hugs.
Meeting Jake (from Jake and the Neverland Pirates for those of you not on a first name basis with the Disney Junior line up) was a highlight of the trip. I didn't see that coming!
We had lunch reservations in Epcot, so we braved the rain and headed that way. We knew we wanted to stop at the Character Spot to see more "friends," but we lucked out and ran into Goofy at the entrance.
Summer camp is over, so I am finally getting around to our Disney pictures. I tried a new photo editing program and then went back to my old favorite. Most of these pictures are from my dad's camera.
As with our last visit, Caitlin's favorite part of Disney was the characters. Daisy has remained #1 in her book. We found her back by the new and improved Dumbo right in a circus themed tent. Our first day was in the middle of a tropical storm. A nice dry spot to see some of the kids' favorite friends was a great break from the rain!
Most of the time Sean kept his spot in my arms. He didn't mind seeing the characters, but he wasn't ready to walk up to them on his own. Goofy was one of the few exceptions. Not sure what is was about the giant dog that Sean found to be less threatening...
Now that my summer vacation has started and I have uploaded all the pictures I should be blogging a little more regularly. = )
