Day One...and Two

Well, we have now finished the first two days from our magical week at Disney (can you sense the magical taste of brainwashing from all the magic going on around here?). I have taken lots of pictures already...which are currently on the other computer that is not wanting to have anything to do with the internet connection here, so you'll just have to picture us in your head having such a magical time in the land of all magic.

We went to Magic Kingdom yesterday (see a trend here?) and spent 3 arms and half a leg for that fuzzy feeling in your stomach once you enter into the gates and hear the trumpet of voices singing about "the year of wishes". Seriously, Disney knows how to make you feel all warm and fuzzy. Emma was finally tall enough to ride the kiddie rollercoaster, and she was a hoot! She heard everyone else screaming while they rode it, so she thought that was just what you were supposed to do...scream...the entire time. I was laughing too hard to explain that she didn't have to scream at the top of her lungs. She loved it! Abby was tall enough to ride the Thunder Mountain Railroad, and Emma boo-hooed that she wouldn't be able to ride it for another 6 years...with the rate at which she is growing.

Nana (my mom) was really good for taking the girls on the puke-a-rama rides that their poor parents can't handle...ie: the tea-cups. (Insert cute picture that I took here.) She was also good for holding Nathan in the Dumbo ride line until he fell asleep on her shoulder (insert another cute picture that I took here.) while I threatened Emma within an inch of her life that if she did not stop whining and enjoy this very expensive day, I was going to take her bodunkadunk out of that line and she would never see her precious Dumbo again. (Insert frustration of having a whiny 3 year old at Disney at naptime on a fairly sweaty day here.) And yes, she lost her privilege of riding Dumbo...but just because she decided to throw a little fit that caused her to have to wave at Nana and Abby from the sidelines. Yes, there were lots of tears. And yes, she will get to ride it on Thursday.

Nathan did great at Disney. Since he was riding in the stroller or being held all day, his body temp didn't seem to get too terribly high, and he was in good spirits all day. He loved It's a small world, and he had a stare-down contest with Donald at a meet-n-greet. The day couldn't have been more perfect weather-wise. I coated the kids with sunscreen, but was an idiot and didn't put any on myself. For what its worth, you can definitely get a bit sunburned in Florida in February. I plan to slather up tomorrow.

Today was a rest day...Nateman slept for 3 hours this morning and another 2 this afternoon. The girls didn't rest too well, so here's hoping that Emma and I can keep clear of eachother's throats tomorrow. She and I are not on good grounds this week for some reason. We plan on visiting Animal Kingdom tomorrow and Magic Kingdom again on Thursday. And hopefully, I can get the internet up and running on the other computer so I can post pics later on. So signing off for tonight, from the magical land where dreams come true...or whatever.

Sounds like you're all having a great time, despite the occassional meltdown, or two. Hope the rest of the week is just as "magical"! ;o)

What is it about those middle children?! I have a photo or two of a scowling son of mine at Disney... Thankfully it didn't last too long, and we all survived to enjoy our day. Glad to see you guys did, too! Nana's are great!
Love you guys!
