OY! This time of the year is absolutely CRAZY!!! I love it, but I never seem to find the time to do all that I need to do. I'm doing the big school count down...only 3 1/2 days of school left (yes, we do go until the 23rd, crazy, right?).
Anyway, I apologize for the extended intermission between photos. So, here is the slideshow from day 3. We had another incredible day. We started off seeing Minnie and Mickey Mouse. They came to GKTW which was SO nice because there was NO crowd. Emma did pretty well with them (as long as dad was right there with her). Owen however did NOT like Minnie Mouse! He kept hitting her in the face:(. I was in awe because....are you ready for this?......they were shorter than me!!! Even with their big heads on they were STILL shorter than me (I'm only 5'3"...on a good day). So, I think they were a little less intimidating to the kids. Then, we went and saw Goofy, Pluto, and Mary Poppins (also all at GKTW). Goofy and Pluto were OK to Em AS LONG AS her daddy was with her:). Mary Poppins was VERY stern:).
After we got done with the characters we went to the Magic Kingdom again. We rode on Dumbo, It's a Small World, the teacups (Owen was GREEN the entire time we were riding it....and so was I), then we went to see Ariel in her grotto. She was AMAZING with my kids. She spent about 10 minutes with them. She kept asking Em if she had used a "dingle hopper" in her hair (because she still had the wild pop-star princess hairdo).
You can go here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCkErs1iHnE to see Owen with Ariel....HILARIOUS!! He was definitely playing hard to get with her.
After Ariel, the kids played in her splash pad and had a blast! We spent a good part of the day at Magic Kingdom. Then, we went back to GKTW and the kids played in their incredible splash pad and pool! It was BEAUTIFUL! By the splash pad there was a place where you could take the kids pictures. It looked like they were riding a wave. Emma had fun pretending to surf:).
It was another fantastic day! More to come soon!
