Day 2 in Disney!

On Saturday, we headed back out to Magic Kingdom for our second day. It was in the 60's but a little chilly because of the wind. Much warmer than it was in Nashville.
 We definitely made a ton of memories on this trip and we has SO much fun.
Watching the "Move It and Shake It" parade.
 This was the show they do in front of the castle throughout the day. We were basically right at the front and the kids loved it. They pretty much got to see all of the main characters and princesses.
Well, I say they loved it. Be sure to look at Braden's face in this picture. This was the moment that the wicked witch came on stage and he was scared. As wide-open as Braden's personality is, he is the most timid of the three when it comes to some things. He was scared of the witch, Pirates ride the first time, the fireworks and asked Ryan to hold his hand for most new, unknown things. Reed on the other hand loved every thing and wasn't scared at all.
My boys!
 Meeting Mickey for the first time
 Next up was meeting 3 of the princesses. Kylie was so excited! She actually cried and cried after the show in front of the castle because she wanted to go on stage with them.
Cinderella was so good and attentive to the kids.
 We left the park around 4 and went back to take naps from 5-7. We then went back to the park and stayed until closing at Midnight!! Ryan and I ate our words this trip. The first time we went we would say "I can't believe these parents have their kids out so late" but now we know why. There are NO lines at night. We rode everything with no wait at night and the kids were great!
 Barnstormer, the rollercoaster for the second time. The boys loved this ride but Kylie didn't. Ryan and I made Kylie go the second time though to help her not be scared. It didn't really work, but we will keep trying:-)
 Ride #2..the pictures are hilarious. I was sitting in front of them turned around the whole time
taking pics.
 Ride #3 minus Kylie...
Kylie's choice was Dumbo next.
Under the Sea in Fantasyland

Day 1 in Disney!

Ryan planned a surprise trip for our family to Disneyworld for 3 days. We left on Thursday and came back on Sunday. It was the perfect amount of time and we all had the best time! I knew that we would have fun but never anticipated it bring as much fun as it was.
We didn't tell the kids until we got to the airport. Mainly, so we didn't have to answer a gazillion times before the trip "when are we going?!"

Our cart for 3 suitcases, single stroller, double stroller, and 3 carseats.
Can you tell they are so tired. This is the 3 of them going on no nap around 5.
We ate at Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney and just walked around that night. We stayed at the Doubletree Hotel in Downtown Disney and just rented a car. 

Day 1 at Magic Kingdom. They look super excited don't they!
Riding the boat across to the park. 
Their first ride, "It's a Small World"

Having two strollers was definitely the best decision we made. Thanks to Rebekah for letting us borrow her double. We would have never survived without them.
When it was time to go in the street to dance, Reed was the first one ready to go then Kylie. Braden didn't want to but Ryan ended up taking him out there and he was totally fine. 
The boys, including Ryan, loved the Buzz ride where you get to shoot aliens the whole time. I think we rode this 4 times. 
Who is worn out??? 
We went back to our hotel for a short nap then headed to Ohana's for dinner. We ate way too much but it was so good.
Barnstormer for the first time. You gotta love Kylie's expression after the ride. 
The Teacups right after dinner is not a great idea but none of us got sick. We all laughed the whole time. Even the people getting on after us since everyone was dying laughing watching us spin.
