A few of our favorite Disney moments!

At the end of January, beginning of February we spent a week in Florida with our friends and neighbors the Marshalls, and the Nelsons. It was such a fun time and an exciting week. Here are just a few of the tons of pictures we took!

Upon arriving in Florida on Friday, January 28th (after flying the red eye all night) we rested for a bit then went straight to Disney's Magic Kingdom for the afternoon!

The next day, Saturday the 29th, we went to Disney's Animal Kingdom. It is such a fun place with so many live animals to see. This little guy happened to be sitting right at the window as we walked through the animal safari. The kids were totally amazed that a Tiger would be so close to them. Okay us adults were pretty amazed too!
While at the Animal Kingdom we met up with Morgan and Stacy and their girls Hailey, Lindsey, and Daphney. It was so fun to see them since it's been a while, and we finally got to meet new little Daphney, and Hailey and Lindsey hit it off with the rest of the kids!

Sunday, January 30, we went to Epcot. The kids were not quite sure what to call the BIG BALL. Brandon called it the Big Golf Ball, and I called it the Big Disco Ball. I think I may have won the debate! We had a fun time going on the rides and seeing the shows, but the kids were tired and a little grumpy, so we didn't stick around to visit the countries!

Monday January 31, we went to Disney's Hollywood Studios, where we got our chance to meet Mickey. A lot of the rides there-like the Tower Of Terror (which I LOVE)-are for the much older crowd. We took the kids to see some of the shows and a few of the kid rides and things, but by the end of the day they were ready to go.
That night our family went out to Morgan and Stacy's for Family Home Evening. We ate Pizza and talked about Testimonies and just had a really good time. It was so fun to watch Sam and Lindsey play. The older girls were glued to the TV watching-what else-The Disney Channel!

Look at all those Girls!

The poor outnumbered boys!

Tuesday we returned to the Magic Kingdom for a full day of fun! Stacy and the girls met up with us that afternoon and we had such a fun time seeing them again. I found a new little buddy in Lindsay and we had a blast going on rides together! When it was time for them to leave I was very sad to see them go!

Wednesday we decided to make it a not-so-crazy day, and we went back to Epcot to tour the countries and just have a nice relaxing time. It is such a neat place, and each country is beautifully laid out with cool landmarks and features specific to that place. The kids had fun doing a Kim Possible secret agent spy game and meeting Mary Poppins and a few Disney Princesses.

Thursday it was back to The Magic Kingdom for even more Disney craziness! We loved it so much we couldn't stay away! We spent that day just taking it all in and doing as much as we could before we had to leave the next morning.

It was such a fun trip and really is the happiest place on earth. We had a blast and it'll be a trip we'll be talking about for a long time!
Thanks Marshalls and Nelsons for joining us. AND huge thanks to Morgan, Stacy and the girls for making our trip awesome! We love you!
