the happiest place on earth

Day 2: Magic Kingdom
We spent all day at magic kingdom. It was insanely busy but we still had a blast. 

Liam and Emily loved walking next to each other. They kept reaching for each others hands and leaning in to give loves. 

 Crystal and matt... she sure looks excited, not sure about matt :)

The kids loved driving the cars. 
Its scary that jamen is going to be able to actually drive in a year...
 Cec was in charge of steering and josh was helping with the gas and brakes. Chase and I were lucky enough to be in front of them and experience bumper cars :) this is josh looking oh so innocent! 

 Toon Town! Mike had perfect timing to look at the camera! 

 haha. i just have to laugh at this. 

Sleeping arrangements through out the day...

poor brian. we were waiting for the parade to start but he could not stay awake for more then a few seconds. 

  It down poured on us through out the day. It was hilarious to see everyone huddle inside stores to stay out of the rain. We braved it and kept riding rides! It was a blast, but sure didn't help the hair situation!

i LOVE this picture of crystal and liam. We woke him up for the parade and he was in awe of everything. The princesses that came through would blow kisses at him. I would too since hes so darn cute :)

Tinkerbell.... but i missed her. oops! i love the lighting on the castle!

 before we left we wanted to go back to see 
Mickey and Minnie!
terrible picture of me but its the only one with them in it!

Disney World!

Im a little late on posting these, but better late then never I guess!

Before Mike left on his mission (over 2 years ago) we told the grand kids that when he got home we're taking a trip to DISNEY WORLD! So over thanksgiving my parents were so gracious and took the whole family, a whopping 23 of us, to Florida! We were there for 10 days and went to all the Disney, Sea World, Epcot and the Universal parks! There was never a dull moment, or a quiet one! 

I love getting together with my family, especially at disney world when all the adults are more excited then the kids. I have an overload of pictures so here we go! Enjoy!

Day 1: Medieval Times

I absolutely love medieval times! We've been there before and I was very excited to go. For those who haven't been, it is a sit down dinner and a Knights show. You don't get utensils and they give you what seem to be half a chicken. It is the best food, their tomato basil soup is to die for. My mom stayed at the condo and watch the three youngest so the rest of us could enjoy the show. Thank you so much mom, but we missed you! My adorable niece Emily loved playing under the kitchen sink. Liam joined her but I didn't get a good picture of him.

(i cant get the pictures to lay side by side, so sorry for the long line)

During the show they had these amazing horses do tricks. Since I was a young girl I've always loved horses, so I was pretty excited about them. 

"Blue & White, Blue & White, Fight Fight Fight"

When a knight wins a fight they get to throw out flowers. I got one the last time we went so I was determined to get one again! So I stood up and blew a kiss to him and it worked :) Chase was proud.

Valynn, Cecily and I with our flowers

These Knights are actually for sale. I don't know about you, but I would not pay $3000+ for one of these to sit in my home.
(sorry kk, your picture came out blurry)
Mason Brennen and Kim
Mikes a little excited too!

We had a great night, but blue & white lost. The previous times we were there our knight won, so I was sad our streak was ruined. Guess I just have to go again! :)
